PSN is not functioning properly right now and according to Sony it has to do with the Minecraft launch.
It's showing the game as $20 for me, even though I got the PS3 version... Anyone else having this issue?
I'm sure once this issue gets resolved, it should be reduced price for any that bought the PS3 one.
That's what I was assuming. Figured I'd just wait and see, off to play Mount & Blade for abit!
I had the issue too. If you use your computer and just go to the store via internet then it will be listed as 4.99. I can't figure out how to get the texture packs or game saves to transfer though. I have my saves in the cloud yet it says nothing is there. Texture packs won't download to Ps4 either. :/
I had the same problem. I called customer service a few times and finally I got someone who could give me a clear solution. I was told to buy it at full price, call customer service back, and they would give me a full refund back to my PSN account. Once that was done, I was told to go to Minecraft on the PS3 and save to the cloud. After all that, the price for Minecraft on the PS4 would change to $5. This was for the disc version, mind you. I also have yet to do anything with the PS3 version as I am waiting for the money to go back into my account. It should take 3-5 business days. In the meantime, I still have full access to Minecraft. I wonder if I got the game for free.
The only person that I can see being happy is notch >_>/Since everyone is buying his game
Sony is happy too because of licensing and of course sales. I am happy too because I will get my PS Vita version FREE thanks to my PS THREE. because I'm HAPPEE! Maybe PSN is overloaded with traffic??
I don't think PSN servers will be able to handle Destiny's launch either. We'll see what happens tuesday.
it's too bad people don't buy games based on what they bring to the table
Destiny brings a lot to my table which consists of Fun Gameplay. Everything I want from a game. But people who buy a game based on hype alone and haven't played or liked gameplay they've seen are completely idiotic.
My bubbles are going to take a hit for this, but I agree. When I tried to watch the E3 presentation on PS4, the network crashed over and over. When Destiny came out, we all saw what happened that day. That's when I decided to go with the Bone version. (Even giving up the exclusive content.)
You must of not played the bone beta because when I did I had more problems with that version then the ps4 version. I honestly don't know why but I sure as hell did. I even had character file deletion on the bone. Again it was a beta so im not making a purchasing decision based on that. I went with ps4 because I had more friends on that system then I do on the bone. Plus the extra content for me is a bonus and not the incentive.
Didn't have any problems with the bone version. Only it would sat your file was corrupted but all you had to do is hit continue. Mind you this was with the destiny dload app not the xbox store. Because bungie is dumb
lol you will get murdered. P.S. I will be getting this for PS4 so please don't shoot me PSfanboys please.
They handled both Betas just fine. XBL on the other hand...
PSN was fine during the beta. In fact, it's Xbox Live that crashed. Don't assume PSN or XBL will work on launch day. When has a big multiplayer game like this launched and servers held up? Diablo 3, battle.net crashed, SimCity servers went to hell too, even FFXIV had tons of problems at launch. This game will have problems too. The stress test they did with the beta doesn't really mean much considering a lot more people will actually buy the game.
II guess it depends on where you live, because XBL is up for me 99 %, and I'm online a minimum 15 hours a day. I've been a member since 2007, and I would rate the service superlative. Elements of XBL might go down occasionally, but very rarely the entire service, in my experience.
Similar experience here, Redgehammer. I've been on XBL since late '06. The outages and other problems over nearly 8 years were so few that I hardly remember them. Considering how much digital and online mean these days, even for single-player experiences, I just can't dismiss the nonsense going on lately with PSN. Sony must improve their infrastructure demonstrably, or I'm afraid I won't be able to join them, when I finally make my move to the new gen.
Already pre ordered it . So it may not happen to it . Minecraft released as a surprise so it's normal to see huge amount of people to buy it at the same time. But still , they need to evolve psn since we are paying for it. I don't think anyone would deny this idea. Same goes for Live.
I seriously doubt it has anything to do with minecrft. Just a pr cover up. Didnt have an issue with destiny beta. How does minecraft bring you to your knees? And yes you would be bashing xone if it was them. Lmfao, who you think you fooling? Look at you, bbbut xbl goes down all the time. If i was a psn faithful, i would hide my face when someone mentioned xbl, not bring it into the argument. Lol Like wtf. How you gone down talk xbl, when its up and running, with its customers enjoying minecraft and the rest of their games? While you wait on sony to figure out wtf is going on, you say ahhh its nothing. Then you come here and hate on the console thats up and running. Lmfao Didnt we just get a "update" to help "stability"? Then 3 days later, error error error. Sony:"uhhh minecraft did it." Dont you check what YOU put on YOUR system? I pay YOU! Its not a games fault that what i pay you for is in shambles. Its yours, and yours alone. Ps fanboy rant in 3. 2. 1. @gootimes actually i think psn and xbl have more users on them than just ps4 and xone. Nice try. No, really it wasnt.
Psn should be free.
you are right im paying for a service that has been going down allot lately, but you sir need to go back into your cave your trolling every Sony article atm
Hey I'm all for free who would disagree with that. Xbox Live (the one that started this all) should be free too. Edit. And now it's working. They were just waiting on Ksar to complain.
I have no problem paying for online gaming. $50 a year to have a seamless online experience is well worth it in my opinion. PSPlus is a game rental or subscription service. While it was implied that Sony was going to invest in the servers to make it more like Live, so far that isn't what has happened. The PS3's online service which is free has been more stable.
That's why psn sucks And yes I changed my comment
It's funny how nobody complained like this with the Destiny beta causing hours of outages on XB1, it didn't even have much of a problem on PSN. But PSN goes down and it is garbage, and XBL is seamless, and Sony needs to invest!! funny. Sony is investing actually, openstack. And XBL only has to handle 5 mil people, PSN has to handle 10 million, with huge growth monthly, that means you can actually find people online to play with also...
It is free you tard, it's PS+ that cost money
Then why do you pay to play online? Can you provide evidence of Sony saying this. I heard it was to improve server cos other shiZ
@bub16 all free to play online games do not require PS+ to play online. Just a side note.
all online gaming services should be free.
Lol 14 people disagreed? Last gen it was a blessing to be free this gen hells no we don't want it free. Lmao
Any issues stemming from PSN's quality is BECAUSE it has been free for the past 10 years. "Oh this service is terrible, it should be given for free! That will definitely make the quality better!" illogical statement #1
I agree. Ps3's online play was free so I don't think ps+ should have been necessary. Now regardless of this I was a ps+ member prior to the ps4 came out because I liked the free game system and is a good deal, however not all people would see it that way and want to pay for it.
so what exactly does sony do with the money they charge to play online with the ps4 cause it clearly isnt being put back into stable servers.
PSN has always been garbage. I can't stand it at all on PS3. I've heard it's better on PS4, though.
PSN was actually far better on PS3 prior to the PS4 launch. It's been pretty bad to date, any big release or maintenance window causes a severe impact these days.
minecraft's on ps4? I thought yesterday they said it was delayed...
People misread that. It was only delayed for a day. They eveb confirmed yesterday that it would be released today. People saw the word DELAYED and freaked out and didn't bother to look into the story any more. I'm not saying you, i'm talkint about these "journalists" that reported those tweets incorrectly.
It jus started working for me
Really though Sony really need to work more on their backend and have better digital management as these issues seem to be happening more often. Destiny should be interesting to see if similar issues come up.
Just logged back on people should try it now.
Thanks, Yeah me too.
Wow, if PSN goes down for Minecraft imagine what will happen when that new CoD hits!
So i would just like to say i made the "gangsta_green" N4G profile...said one comment and then got the GG profile ban. I really hope you had nothing to do with that gangsta_red...
I have no idea about that as I would have welcomed another gangsta to N4G.
why must you laugh at my misfortune
wow psn sucks , psn should be free hey heres a idea when "The cloud" crashes ok the X Fans start complaining maybe Sony Fans give you same lame comments.. Why people feel need troll i do not know.
I was under the impression that since it cost money to play on the psn that it would be stable. Also why does it go down for maintenance yet still have these problems
ever since the ddos attack now every psn outage is goin to be put on scrutiny. not really warranted but i guess it does get annoying for people.
Psn is bad really bad. Unacceptable!
how do we know the cause was Minecraft? or just another a*hat on the interwebs digging up stuff from his/her arse?
Building blocks puts a wall in the PCI Bus and causes an algorhytems to the value of -1. You need to log out and log in again and should be fine
This does not look good for SONY, specially on DESTINY Month!!
Destiny is going to be CRUSH PSN for awhile. >_>
Since I already own this on xbox 360, I'm opting for the X1 version. My psn is not down as I can still sign in
thats actually kinda cool though.. like it shows people still buy games and that amount can even overload a network :')
It seems to be a recurring theme that when a game launches on the PSN it has a problem day 1. This is about the third game I've heard that didn't release right on launch day. I'm nervous to pre order destiny on pan cause I have a feeling that might have the same problem.
"Consoles are plug and play. They always work unlike PCs" Yeah right.
Its back up guys, so the haters can go back under the bridge now.
Who cares, its the most over hyped, biggest waste of time, rubbish game out there, cant stand it.
Imagine paying to play online on these servers..... lol what are you paying for?
Troll harder. I had no downtime at all today, so it was just minecraft players. I've been on PvZ and Tlou Online since 9 am and got off at around 3pm .. No crash or downtime here.
I just tried buying Minecraft PS4 and it didn't register, but it took my money. Great.
I really don't think that this is happening because of server load. I really really don't. The PSN servers could handle the Destiny Alpha and Beta's without issues. It has handled the countless game launches since November. It is pretty hilarious though that everyone has jumped on the Sony hate wagon and the PSN hate wagon so quickly. It's really pathetic. And the people saying "PSN SHOULD BE FREE!!!!" you have to be the dumbest people I have ever seen in my life. Even IF the PSN couldn't handle the load (doubtful that's the case) then how could it being free possibly help that? Hey, let's take money AWAY from making the service better, that will definitely make the service better right? Absolute imbeciles. EDIT: So these issues are only affecting the NA PSN. So yeah, more than likely isn't a server load issue.
I know where I'll be doing my online gaming ^_^
Overloaded by the amount of people downloading the game at the same time. It happens with 10 million userbase & a very popular downloadable title.
