PSN seems to be down for some this Superbowl Sunday.
Funny mine works signed in 10 min ago
It may be a regional outage. I am having issues logging in and the web store front seems down.
Welcome to the next generation of gaming.
I am down, aoapparently xb1 and ps4 are officially both less stable online than last gen. I have already had more downtime on xbl than I ever did on 360 (heck, even the original xbox was more reliable) over 8 years. they need to get their crap together. Either that or they need to become free service.
Yeah, the constant downtime is inexcusable. Sony decided to lock multiplayer behind the PS+ paywall with the PS4 but they obviously don't want to use any of the $50million per month PS+ profit to provide a service that actually works with some semblance of reliability. Seriously, the PSN used to be decent during the PS3 era but right now it's a complete joke of a service, with the added insult that we now have to sign up to PS+ if we want to play multiplayer.
this explains why I was unable to sign in while I was on earlier. I wasn't going to watch the Super Bowl, but since there was no PSN I decided that's what I'd do with my time. NFL probably paid some hacker to shut the systems down so they rake in more viewers/revenue *sarcasm*
Store doesn't work, Now doesn't work.
Okay, it's back up for me. Rdit: how bout that inception though.
it was down where i live, but the error i was getting was saying it was down for maintenance. whether that's actually the reason, i have no idea.
before, when PS3 had free online, I would not give a Sh**... but now when I pay 50 euros every year, I demand explanation for every case, I want response from sony 10 seconds after its down, I want it to be fixed in no time! just like every other stuff I pay for... you asked my money, Im just asking for secure network! fair enough!
It seems it was luck of the draw from my experience, I was connected without any problems all day yesterday and last night, meanwhile my friend who lives about a 30 minute drive away couldnt get on at all. Based in Ireland. So it didn't seem to be a regional thing, whatever it was it seems to have gone away now. I was expecting a lot of teething issues with the network once PSNOW went in to its next phase, so the recent instability doesn't really surprise me. Leave it to the inernet and N4G to lose their absolute minds over a minor inconvenience. Pick up a book. Play a board game. Go Outside. Call your folks. Make Art. Whatever; plenty of more productive things to be doing than going in and bitching about a mole hill of a problem online.
Why are there so many trolls in these outage articles? This was rectified relatively quickly and yeah it was regional. I wasn't access affected.
It is down for me. I live in NY.
Thank god steam is free so valve can keep it stable lol I am really not sure why console gamers pay sony to play on activision servers? But have at it . Psn has been down for people how many times since last november? Kaz is spending you guys money on beer and hookers.
You know if it really is maintenance cant they tell us ahead of time? or at least let us know when its happening so we don't assume its the lizard squadron.
I'm in Germany and PSN is down for me.
Mines down uk manchester
Was just pwn crota and blam I got bitched slapped by PSN
Down in Miami too.
Down for me too, I'm in Afghanistan.
I'm currently logged in, but my friend got kicked. We were playing Dying Light. We are both on the same county.
Just signed in with 0 problems. ( West Coast US.)
I was down but it's back up for me aswell.
mine works in california
It's getting absurd now. It's like you can bank on the fact that when you want to play, you cant. I just paid to re up Now and I can't use it.
https://support.us.playstat... Current status
I've been playing the Planetside 2 beta all day. Just stopped to eat a sammich.
make me a sand-witch, Please"
Was that a spell check? Cause you also spelt it wrong...
If people would read a book instead of constantly stroking themselves thinking about PS being better than Xbox they might get that reference...
@ Yourmom69s Because you get the reference you are superior to me. Im sorry I haven't had time to read Harry Potter.
I haven't had any problems! it's all good for me!
Mine is down. Really hope it'll be up soon. I was feeling some battlefield.
Back up now
One person cant sign into psn = "omgz psnz is down! stop the presses!"
as you can see this is happening not to only one person... and it is also not limited to a specific region... If you are online, try shut down PS4 and reboot to see if you still can login.
Yea I was online then restarted My ps4 and now I can't get on at all
So in other words: You cant count.
I guess this is only happening to me...
Im down, was just about to play Destiny.
Up for me (San Diego).
Battlefield 4 not working, battle pack cant be loading, and plase sing in for online playing msg bla bla
I have problems on my ps3, but my ps4 is fine.
Exact same situation at my house. It's Super Bowl time, though so it's all good lol.
down for me.
Can't get on but at least it's the Super Bowl
Im in NE USA and I cant log into psn >_< All digital content is locked me
You should really make activate your account on your PS4 to be a master account so you don't require an internet connection to access your digital content
STOP SPREADING LIES I've had my digital games locked while being the primary system, stop assuming everyone isn't the primary just because their games are locked. The PS4 has online DRM and this needs to change, once the people realize this and start complaining about it is the only way SONY will ever change it.. By telling people to activate as the primary you're blindly and unknowingly defending SONY's PS4 online DRM policy with false information, especially when the majority of the people you tell to activate as the primary system are already activated as such. #DeathToPS4OnlineDRM
rg: obviously you had not. my ps4 was not connected to the psn for 2 weeks straight at one point and i could still play all my digital games
Its not lies, I have 2 PS4's one has my master account on it and the other does not. The one with my master account doesn't require an internet connection to play any digital title UNDER any user on that console, unless its an online only game which you can still boot up. If your console has your digital titles locked and your under your master account, try deactivating your account on that console and reactive it as no matter what you should be able to access all your games even when PSN is down. - Its a fact, if not something is up & if deactivating your console and reactivating it you should contact Sony support or try resolving the issue one way or another.
See this is the stupidity of the general public I just said I am and have always been the primary user yet these morons try and tell me that I am not and that I need to reactivate like I don't know anything about the PS4. Stupidity is strong in this community. PS4 has Online DRM, period.. Because of idiots that try to downplay it this will never get fixed.
There are several possible solutions to your problem RG. They are well documented all over the net. If you can't use google, then you can search my comment history about 2-3 weeks ago and I went over all the fixes for the people that complain just like your doing now. If you're still having problems after that, then contact Sony's customer support, because something isn't right with your account. Instead of blaming Sony for things working the way they intend them to, try and fix the problem, which more often than not come down to user error when setting up the system. I know it's hard to believe that you misunderstood something during the set up, but it happens. All digitally purchased games have DRM involved, and if you don't want to deal with it, I suggest you stick with retail while it still doesn't have all that crap attached to it. I'm all for better DRM practices, but you're not going to achieve anything by complaining on a forum like this, since this is exactly how Sony's DRM has worked since it's inception.
RG doesn't have any problems. He's just making crap up. Seeing as my internet here is randomly intermittent, I frequently play my games offline. Hell, I first downloaded my games elsewhere then brought them home to play them. NO INTERNET, NO PROBLEM. This guy has "problems" with his "PS4," but there aren't any fixes for imaginary consoles or the problems that plague them.
Add me to the list of people who suspect RG_Dubz may not even own a PS4. I can play all my games offline, other than the ones that need to be online like Destiny or the Planetside 2 beta.
You don't need to internet access to play digital game. Don't know where people get this bullshit from, unless you not the main user of the game downloaded from RG need to stfu who doesn't even own a PS4 and know nothing of it
@RG_Dubz Here's how test your console to see if you can play your games offline: The PS4 that you're using must be the primary PS4 on your account. If you allow someone else to have access to your account, WHAT EVER HAPPENS AFTER THAT IS TOTALLY ON YOU!!! After you make your PS4 the primary console on your account, disconnect your console from the internet and try to play a digital game that you have downloaded on your console. http://www.reddit.com/r/PS4... If you continue to deny the fact that you can play games offline on your PS4 people are just going to think that you're a delusional fanboy, especially with the link I posted and the several people here in this thread telling you that you're mistaken.
Not that I'm making excuses for s**ty psn but if you set the master account you can play digital titles if you've signed in at least once to authenticate. P.s. psn is trash this gen. Maybe it's too much to have two console up and running..
When PSN does comeback, make sure you activate your account on your PS4, else you'll keep having that problem.
Tested mine and it is up but it seems to be affecting a lot of PS4 owners trying to get online and you can see the thread at Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/PS4... Maybe the PSN employees are all taking the day off to watch the Super Bowl. LOL
It went down for me, while I was playing Dying Light. My friends nor digital games don't work right now..
That is why I buy physical.
Haha true! You just took the words out of my mouth. By the way for my first digital retail game, might be my last.
Thats why I buy DRM free digital .
you mean games run as as long as you don't require online connectivity to play them? I can run all my digital games as long as I don't play online mode but then retail games would be affected too, right?
Just got the notification: Sony network is now undergoing maintenance
Isn't that DRM?
Weird why I can still play mine while it offline?
psn is down... was playing destiny. console froze up and restarted when tried using party chat. now no psn :(
My friend and I had problems signing into Trials Fusion and GTAOnline. It looked like the online portion of these games wasn't working. Maybe it's just some games.We were signed in and on Party Chat. I rebooted my PS4 to maybe fix the problem and now I can't sign in. Something happened. Wether it happened to everyone or just a few; Something, happened!
