PlayStation Network currently down

In what is either one serious case of unfortunate timing or preparation for E3 madness, the entire PlayStation Network appears to be offline, as seen here. Sony previously announced that they'll be bringing E3 to PS3 users, so perhaps this outage is in preparation for that. We'll let you know as soon as we hear something.

The story is too old to be commented.

All in heavy preparation for tomorrow. It's all good.

no its not "all good" since last years "bring it home" did not crash the xbox live servers and so far this years follow up on live has not crashed the servers for "readiness"

Could it be, possibly, maybe, that they took it down for some maintenance and possibly an huge upgrade prior to E3? Could it. IT is all good. It's not that big of a deal. Do you expect it down for days? No. So relax. I take this as a routine maintenance or a huge upgrade to the infrastructure of PSN. Either way, it's not bad. And who cares what MS did. Sony working hard to provide exceptional service online. So things go down for maintenance.


I see you point. I agree that there is no notification. But if it's a hug update (barring no server crash), would Sony really notify the world that they are completely revamping the whole system prior to E3. Probably not. But nonetheless, I have to agree with you.

If this is a planned outage, it would have been nice to get some kind of notification that this was going to happen.
If this is just a scheduled maintenance for the E3 stuff, that's pretty aweful customer service on SONY's part.
At least Microsoft gives all of its XBOX LIVE users some notice when these things will be happening.

I guess that's what you get with a free service...


cant wait i bet its slow when e3 starts

Hope u all have a fast connection
