The PlayStation Network is currently: Intermittently available.
I got quite a lot of issues with PSN lately. Hope these will get fixed soon. Nothing serious though but I am not an online gamer.
Maybe they are getting ready for patch 2.0? Hopefully.
No way. As per usual, Sony will release it one day before winter. (Always the later date when it comes to Sony and firmware). This is the only problem I have with Sony. Otherwise a great company. Overall.
Lot of issues?
yes. I can't fully sync my trophies, sometimes it won't let me connect to PSN or access the PSN store, kicks me out of PSN quite a lot some times recently. Never had a problem before. I have experienced this only on PS3 because I am still waiting for some new games on PS4 ^^
@TimeSkipLuffy: Weird. I've not had those problems on my end at all. And I'm pretty much connected to the PSN all day long, either via my phone or my PS4 that I use while I'm working. Sorry you're having issues.
Wait a minute. I was trying to play Killzone Mercenary online yesterday. No wonder why I couldn't but I'm glad Sony has sorted the issue.
It stayed online for me. I wonder why it goes down for some but not all.
That sux bro. I hate after a long day you go to sit down and game but it's down
Hopefully it is because they are fixing their horrible download speeds.
Are you talking about those same horrible download speeds that allowed me to download P.T. (a 1.4 gig file) in 16 minutes?
That's not fast... I can download a gig in about 5 min.
1.4 Gb file in 16 minutes isn't really something to brag about... That's like 2Mbps?
Not everyone has 20+Mbps download speeds. Heck, some people are even capped on how much they can download each month. Regardless, PS4 download speeds are miles better than PS3. Sony still has a way to go to match their competitors, but I don't think that's possible considering their primary competitor has 3 decades in dealing with this technology and is the core of their business.
Ps4 and ps3 test connection speed is not accurate. Use testmy.net to see actual speeds.
cg: Yeah, download speeds on PS3 was atrocious. PS4 is a lot better, but still behind their main competitor by a mile. Kudos to Sony for getting some features out before their competitor though, like digital pre-ordering.
Lucky....and to the guy below I wish that 2Mbps would download that file size in 16 minutes. I'm locked at 2.3Mbps and it took me about 45 minutes to download P.T. Some of you guys complain bout your speeds, and I just laugh because you don't know what bad is. Frontier DSL sucks
In network settings change your ps3/ps4 dns setting to manual and input: Primary 188.8.131.52 Secondary 184.108.40.206 OR Primary 220.127.116.11 Secondary 18.104.22.168
For anyone who doesn't know that's Google and OpenDNS servers.
How safe is that to use? Is there a chance of angering my ISP or of being hacked?
Download speed are you own problems, talk to your IP
This is such BS right here, i compared internet speeds last gen and xbox360 ran laps around the ps3
Nope, this is the only device I have download issues with. My PC, Xbox One both download very fast. I will try those DNS settings though and see if that helps.
You sure that's not just your internet
Sony's PS4 download speeds have come a long way from the PS3 speeds. I had a 10Mb speed when PS4 came out and it was much faster than PS3 speeds. Luckily i've since upgraded to 50Mb and it's blazing fast!
The only time the download speed is worse on ps4 for me is the first day or two of release for a new title because everyone is downloading it. Like the Destiny beta and ps plus free titles. A lot more people download games from ps4 at the same time than ps3 so it will take some time until the servers can handle everyone at launch. Other than those peak times i always get full speed for PS4.
Had no issues here
Please get it fix sony thanks
No problems here.
What? is this a Monthly thing with PSN? Is it in small letters on their psn contract that states this is part of the monthly or annual subscription? I gotta to give them credit for consistancy..This make happy that I pay premium price for premium service on XBL.
Stop, dude. Just stop. Didn't XBL just have some problems late last month or so?
For two days I've only had minor issues. Day before yesterday it kicked me out of my party chat, which I was then able to get up and running again. Yesterday, however, it kicked me out of party chat and I was no longer able to get it connected. I restarted my system and was not able to sign in. Thought maybe it was my internet, but I was able to watch Netflix without issue. Hopefully this is working by the time I get off today, for me and for everyone.
Intermittently available just means not available at least half of the time.
Lol 50% of the time it works 100% of the time!
Would anyone say resolution is more important or stable dedicated servers?
Depends on the game, but if it means uninterrupted games I would go with dedicated servers every time. Once you get used to resolution you don't notice a difference. However once you notice you can't get into several games, lag out or have to wait a lot. You notice that a lot more.
So glad most of these downtimes occur while I'm at work!
