PlayStation Knowledge Center In order to continue to deliver you the best online games experience, we will be performing maintenance on Thursday, October 30. This maintenance will start at approximately 9pm Pacific and end around 11pm PDT.
Thanks for the heads up I don't think this'll effect me much seeing as how I only have my vita for now. I'm glad they decided to do it tonight instead of mid tomorrow.
let's just hope it's not longer than the two hours -_-
LOL... Your post is funny two.
This better not interfer with the Evolve alpha. I have an extra code for PS4 if anyone wants it. Email me at [email protected] if you are interested.
It doesn't always work, but if you log in and only put your PS4 in standby rather than turning it off completely, you should be fine for multiplayer games.
Well dang no Freedom Wars 4v4 then or Battlefield 3
According to the article will affect psn and home, online gaming should be ok
"should" nah dont give me should I dont trust that lol
this is getting annoying now. even Wii U i never hear going down for maintenance or servers going down. why is it even PS3 had more stable online compared to PS4 ? PS3 had 80 million consoles sold with more active users but PS4 can't even handle less than 12 million ? how can it possibly have gotten worse ? i'm not a fanboy if any stupid troll tries it. i only own a PS4 and i'm getting annoyed by the maintenances. the media needs to cause a riot over this so Sony actually has to respond and improve the PSN. how was PS3 more stable while not only having more active users but it was also free. where exactly is our PS4 and PlayStation plus subscription money actually going ? because it sure as hell isn't going into improving PSN.
WiiU has no network to speak of.It's even close to XBL or PSN,i hope it is close with their next console. This won't affect me or much of anyone short of the Home people. You'll still be able to play online like normally so this is crying over nothing.
im getting sick of this nonsense updates everyweek...
maybe they're getting ready for the evolve alpha tomorrow.
They should not need to get ready
All that maintenance and my friendlist and messages are still lagging, great job PSN team.
Gotta agree there. Firmware 2.0 and we still have 5 min delays on messages and no friend online notifications. Explain to me why a year later we still don't have features the damn PS3 had. And the network is always under maintenance. -_-
The message delay is because they keep a copy on their end and that's what is sent to everyone else as opposed to sending it out to every one of your devices and not keeping a copy on their end. On their end, it's timestamped at 5m ahead of time for some reason (I don't know it, but there's likely one). So, when you get delays, it's because it's delayed in getting it from their own servers where it's being sent to first, stored, and then accessed from your PS4.
This is getting beyond ridiculous.
So am guessing this is early hours UK time?
Yeaaaa... And now my profile no longer loads .... I just want the xmb back , know I'm not gonna get that wish but eeh. The PS4 AND Xbox One have yet to impress me. PSN is Down almost weekly and I'm paying for this....
PSN is really annoying me. What are people paying for? I want to get one but these outages are silly Sony.
Of course it is...
Does anyone ever wonder why there's all this "maintenance" being done, yet the service is still so poor?! When I first saw this I was like "dam you Sony that's twice in one week!!" But then I remembered I'm not paying for Plus right now. I'll be playing the Evil Within so it will be ok, this time. Otherwise the network would be down for me when I get off work. Nice heads up!
I don't wonder why. It's obviously to fix things and hopefully, one day, actually get to the stable system they need to have. The problem is Sony isn't a 'network coding' company like MS. But, I do think they could do with hiring some people who are professionals in the industry or something. Who they have now just aren't getting the job done.
Honest question, why does PSN keeping going down for maintenance so often? Even then there are a lot of times that it goes down for no reason at all. Wasn't Shuhei Yoshida on recording saying "maintenance is last gen" what ever happened to that? https://twitter.com/yosp/st...
PSN isn't going down, you'll still be able to play online like normal. Just the store account management, the store and Home will be affected. It's only for 2 hours two so i think we'll find a way to live through this lol
As long as I can still play Destiny tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed.
You would have to be logged in before the maintenance starts so you can play Destiny.
Is that how it works? I mean, I will be, i'm on the east coast, so maintenance actually won't start until midnight for me, so I'll definitely be logged on. It won't kick me out when maintenance starts?
From what I've seen its 50/50. Sometimes you get forced offline but other times you stay logged. I guess it all comes down to luck.
It will be my bed time at the time of the maintenance. Lucky me.
Hi, I'm new here. I'm thinking about getting either the ps4 or the Xbox one. Both grab my attention. I've always had playstation. Uncharted 4 and the order look sweet and all, and the graphics are a bit better than the xbox. However, I'm wondering which one you guys recommend since I'm hearing psn going down way too often. What I hear about xbox is that it rarely goes out, plus it has its fair share of exclusives as well.
I personally, would recommend the xbox one, because of it's service and, of course the exclusives that are going to be dropping next year. But if you want the ps4, then by all means go for it :)
I can't even get in the PS store :( well at least I can watch Netflix at 1080P
