PSN is undergoing some unexpected maintenance.
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
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..
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' lol 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'. *shrugs* 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 :(
Ha no worries mate. You got unlucky there.
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".
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.
Driveclub PS+ Edition incoming. You heard it here first folks!
I have been on for the last 4 hours and I never got signed out.
When you are signed in already you don't get signed out when maintenance occurs
Seems like the PSN is always undergoing "maintenance."
Worst possible time. Trying to redeem a $50 card to buy The Witcher.
I know this is going to be an unpopular comment due to site bias even though it's 100% true but PSN has to be one of, if not the most unreliable network service I've ever experienced, ever since it became a paid service it's like Sony stopped trying altogether, I've lost count of how many times it's been down in the last month alone, fix this crap Sony, the unconditional forgiveness of your fanboys is only making the problem worse, it's like they enjoy the constant outages...
It's a good thing you said "one of the most unreliable network services". Xbox Live has been down or had issues way more times in the past 12 months than PSN has, yet I don't tend to see you saying the same thing as you are here on those particular articles that are posted. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Most of the time that PSN goes "down", it's for scheduled maintenance, which they tell you about beforehand and if you're logged in you can still play online perfectly fine. XBL is closer to having "constant outages" than PSN. This is not good for PlayStation gamers right now, but neither is your severe misrepresentation.
Actually PSN has been down way more times than Xbox Live. It's because Xbox Live is way more reliable. I'm surprised I don't see you in more articles with their down time and "schedule maintenance" complaining. (Here let me post a couple of youtube videos and pretend their opinions are facts too:) https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Most of the time when Xbox goes down it's just the friends or market place but not the actual multiplayer. Stop spreading misinformation and trying to deflect the blame on Xbox.
Today was the first day all month its been down for me personally. You either have bad internet service, live in a location where service is not as strong, or you're trolling. Either way. Everyone has a different experience no matter what service you're using.
So now they call it 'maintenance' when someone from the outside brings their network to its knees.....
Proof? Or just trolling?
It;s a joke - sheesh - lose the tampon
Yeah...no it was flat out down.
when will sony fix the awful psn
PSN undergoing maintenance? This never happens. SHOCK HORROR
Imagine that....psn is down
