Just as it looked like gamers were out of the woods regarding disruption to the PlayStation Network a spate of sporadic outages have again started to plague some of the user base.
the psn is not working on ps4 and the web store but psn is working on ps3 :S
Everything working here
Still working here. This is being way overblown by the media. I don't know anybody experiencing problems right now. Just move on already.
So sick of this crap. A few twisted individuals ruining things for the masses for some need for attention.
They were deprived that much needed attention as young children.
Everytime Ive been on my PS4 since Saturday is been down.
Ergo, YOU are the problem! Get him!!
Its working fine for me. LizardSquad seems to possibly be Islamist according to their tweets. They talk about Jihad, ISIS, and supposedly uploaded the ISIS flag to sony's FTP severs. They call us indirectly, Kuffar (infidels), so there appears to be a motivation behind all this. This certainly isn't some pc master race fanboys taking down networks for fun.
Islamic people aren't terrorist , ISIS is but not Islamic people considering that ISIS are killing innocent people it is against what the Qura'an said.
By Islamist I meant Islamist extremist not Islamic people sorry
Thanks slick willie, but I don't believe your b.s. You hate us, admit it.
I get more the feeling that they are doing that because of what's going on in the news. Basically they're just doing it to get a kick out of it.
When it comes down to it people are responsible for their own actions, religion has nothing to do with it.
@wackodasniper plz don't do this i'm a Moslim from Egypt and Islamic people aren't terrorist terrorist come from every religion every religion have it extremist also why Islamic people would want to hurt Sony or any company ?!
Alhumdul-illah, your exactly right brother
their just a bunch of tools that want to be like anonymous.
They could be anonymous if they want. Its not a real group. Just say you are, and you are
I thought there was maintenance
@Starbucks Mine doesn't say under maintenence tbh, guess it's the waiting game again buddy
PSN seems to be working just fine in the NY area (east US). Lemme not jinx it.
I didn't realize Hotline Miami was out on PS4 and was free download for PS3 owners already. I was just strolling through the store last night and was pleasantly surprised that I had a free download of Hotline Miami, so I got it and played for a lil while.
ya I got it free too because I had it on ps4. not gonna use it mutch tho.. platinumd it. but Hotline miami 2. f yaa
I got the notification from Sony saying Psn is going to be down for maintainence.
The problem with the maintenance Sony's mentioned is that their update said, ''We will provide an update shortly for when the maintenance will be rescheduled.'' And they haven't done so yet.
Seems since launch there is always something wrong.. random errors, disconnects, slow downloads etc. It was fine back when it was free, but now that we are paying it is kind of annoying.
Aside from the Lizard Squad DDoSing everything the last couple days, the PS4 has been very impressive. The only change that I've experienced, is that games that crash due to a bug will usually crash to an error message rather than locking up your entire system as it did in previous generations. Which is actually a good thing, since the system can send crash reports to the maker of the software and you don't have to do a hard restart of your whole system to start gaming again.
Mines down atm, so frustrating. Sept 9th with destiny launch will be attacked again by these idiots, I can see it now
Im so sick of this crap, let my people game
Guys to be perfectly honest. I realize "this isn't a hack" but they are seriously doing numbers on the PSN servers. So what is it? This shouldn't be an issue like this. They should be able to handle a DDoS attack with packets. This isn't a console war thing. We as consumers should expect more from a paid service that has a pretty bad history or network issues. Today is a big day for digital sales and releases and here we are sitting with our thumbs up our you know what's... Yes I am irritated with the lizard kids but I am even more frustrated with PSN for not being better equipped. Please don't tell me you can't prevent a DDoS or lesson the packet throwing attempts of these kids. I pay for this service.
@DLConspiracy So because Sony cannot get more Data Centers live fast enough, the people are going to continue to hammer the network with a DDos attack because they can? Here is the point Say Sony does increase the Network servers and data center's and they still keep DDos'ing the service? what then, but Microsoft, and ? Microsoft has 100 times the size of data centers than Sony or Nintendo, but imagine Nintendo getting hammered like this, what the hell do you and other's think would happen? Hmm? The fact its like the poilice can run over a persons house with a riot Tank, should everyone on the block now be required for their security to have a "bunker" to protect the house? Hey if Sony was allowed to DDos these people to show how weak the security they have and the network they have goes down and they could not go online also, and shouted on social media ..hey look at this person they have no real security to prevent a DDos, better upgrade your Security there skippy. when they open claimed they were going to "DESTROY Sony" you do not think that maybe they just may have an Axe to grind with Sony and its service.. Oh they charge for it now and they do not have enough security to preve3nt a DDos, So Sony increases defence, and they keep bringing the Tank, its easy for people that do not play by the Law to keep attacking than the people that do play by the rules and Law cannot DDos the Attacker!
I am not saying they should continue DDoS on Sony... The more those idiots do it the riskier it is for them. So they will stop. They are being pretty brazen about it. My point is. If your house has been the target of a tank. Wouldn't you be better prepared for that tank the next time it comes? I mean its been four years. Every business has counter measures for this sort of thing. Especially multi billion dollar companies. Its not like this is the first time. Again I am not implying in any way shape or form that its OK what these kids are doing. Its not. Plain and simple. However, if its happened before you don't exactly leave your door open do you? That is just asking for it.
sony is really poor at this shit.. fix the damn network. jesus
As long as it's fixed before Destiny launches (Hoping for MUCH sooner). Would be a major problem if that game is impacted by this.
I luv my PS4 but Sony's online infrastructure is still an epic fail.
Smdh.....get it together sony
seriously - no fanboy here. although I am a Sony fan. I'm 99% sure lizard squad are xbots. They talk about bringing down live. but it's just there cover. They live for live
Don't you think you should be pointing the finger at Sony a bit? No offense but turning this into a console war issue is childish.
Yes maybe sony should buy something to prevent ddos. but you can't be sure. if/when sony will prevent ddos they'll just do it again and say it still isn't good enough. -I'm still sure it's fanboys of some kind EDIT- I disagreed with u, I meant to agree
Its all good man. I take likes and dislikes with a grain of salt anymore anyway. Saves me from having to worry about how I actually feel. Back on point though. I would think these kids are more PC fans.
You seem to be the only one pointing fingers in Microsofts direction. Gotta be there fault somehow right? I think you should look up the definition of a fanboy
I know what a fanboy is thanks ;-)
This is doing my head in. It was okay when it was down a couple of days ago, I just thought "Cool, I'll play my Xbox One for a bit". 2 hours later I was bored as I only have the free Games with Gold games that suck tbh and Titanfall which I have no interest in anymore. Now I've resorted to playing Dishonored on the 360, just about to boot it up. Hopefully its good and then something good will have comne out of the down time.
So, the logic to make Sony improve their PSN/SEN etc, is to ruin it 'n bring it down 'n causes mass losses to Sosy 'n players ? What kinda of logic is that from an attacker on Sony ? could it be envy ? due to their recent success :(
I've just been ADDICTED TO DIABLO 3 grinding with parties happy I got it on Xbone but I HAVE FISHING TO DO IN FF14!!!
PS4 Network working fine for me here with 14 friends currently online.
Anonymous @W0rIdPeace Those having psn problems, try going on now. Works for me now !
PSN Gate Remastered.
This is ridiculous. Remember when PSN was down on PS3 for so long. People suck plain and simple. All this does is hurt the gamers.
What's ironic, those who are attacking Sony are saying the security is not good enough, but yet who was it that Sony hired to head the cyber security team after the hack in 2011? And you really think getting in that easy would not net them info on your Attacks to use against the attackers to prosecution in court? The fact that the govt. Did oversight on Sony's Network sorta like probation, it is very doubtful this is not being a well protected network from that last excessive hack last time in 2011. I hear Sony needs more DDos defenses' well duh! But on the same token they already do have DDos defense's, it was the fact that Sony A: Has been informing the public in prompt fashion, has been sending information to the FBI! But yet you hear on gamers forums like this , Sonys security is crap and that it needs to be more stable like? But yet here is battle net going down, twitch with DDos attacks, DDos service attacks are not as preventable as some on here like to make claim, you need much larger data centers to make your network more "Resistant" not immune that's "Resistant" not being immune because no network can be 100% Immune to a DDos attack.
