Update: It seems that the PSN is undergoing more than a little merry maintenance, there are problems with the service today.

Could do with hurrying up I'm really bored my day of work and this happens my luck lol hope it don't take to long.

again? It worked better when it was free on PS3... smh

SolidStoner966d ago

I have no problems with downtime and maintenance, but considering I pay for the PS+ service I demand it to work right NOW!

or make it free again.. really they should make backup servers.. if something goes wrong, just switch... or similar..

DragoonsScaleLegends966d ago

Yeah but that was when we had less people jumping on board at one time plus the PS4's OS basically has PSN built into it and required for everything. Still sucks that they can't keep up for demand on a platform with so few great games.

Back up for me. Seriously reporting maintenance lasting half a hour on a monday is silly.

Someone tell me why we need articles about this when the official site tells you everything you need to know about PSN status....

'again? It worked better when it was free on PS3'


it actually worked really well until they updated the psn store.

now the psn store is laggy, buggy, crashes, and is a piece of crap.

sony need to go back to 2010. back to those blue tiles. it worked well back than, not sure why they had to change everything.

im talking on the ps3 here.

Was only down for about an hour for me so no big deal back to playing.

The title could simply have been: 'PSN undergoing Maintenance'.


Besdies, its Monday. Good time to get it done today.

[edit- okay so there are problems now. Now the headline is even more silly :P]

I know, I know, I'm kicking myself here, but at the time it went live there was nothing to suggest it was more than maintenance :(

Septic966d ago

Ha no worries mate. You got unlucky there.

freshslicepizza966d ago

can anyone explain why the servers need to be shut down to do maintenance? this has been going on for years on psn and i have yet heard an answer to why this occurs more often than it does on amazon, google, steam, and microsoft. i am not talking about hacks and ddos attacks, i'm talking about routine maintenance and it seems to occur about once a month on psn.

0/1. That's 0%. You failed your own quiz.

The correct answer was "yes, it is undergoing maintenance".

chrish1990966d ago

To be fair, at the time of writing the psn status page said all was fine and there was nothing but a pop-up on the PS4 saying it's undergoing maintenance.

Back up for me, just had to test my internet.

Hopefully it will restore soon.
