PS3 UK, France, Germany status sites: The Soonest Way To Tell If PSN is Back Up

From "Gamers in the UK and other countries have a leg up on everyone in America when it comes to knowing the answer thanks to the official PlayStation UK site...The official PlayStation site here in the United States doesn't have a PSN status icon and Sony has only updated its blog twice, so far sparse with detail on when PSN will be back." (PS3, PSP, Tag Invalid)

Ooooh nice :) SCEA should take a few notes about designing websites, because the european PlayStation website look really nice! Lots of useful stuff under the eyes too.

i'm wondering why they took the status indicator off the us site, they use to have it
egidem  +   1678d ago
People are absolutely going nuts over this outage! I am simply going to sit back, relax and wait for any future updates from Sony on this issue. In the meantime, I'll play some single player games. If I get bored, I'll go outside.

Simple as that.

Go outside?

I can imagine some one on that site hitting the refresh button every second.
SwiderMan  +   1678d ago
@Blad3star It would be enough to crash the Network... oh wait.
iheartdestr0y  +   1678d ago
About time we get a better notice system.
SwiderMan  +   1678d ago
Agreed. PSN needs a fail whale.
oricon  +   1678d ago
No its not a good way to find out if psn is up due to it sometimes shows that its on, because ive been checking for status update and sometimes shows on.
lil Titan  +   1678d ago
i think they said they are ready to go online they just want to add more security to the network so this wont happen again
Blad3star  +   1678d ago
You think

Its either you did hear that or you did not - which one is it?
lil Titan  +   1677d ago
Its still i think and where would i hear that info from? its more likely i read that somewhere, so its either they are securing the network with more security or they're not simple as that or like i said "I Think"

i swear not being online made some people snappy, yall need a hobby

SlyFoxC  +   1678d ago
i use the UK site more than i use the US site lol....actually i have a tab for Playstation thing that sucks is i cant sign up to win any of the contests on the its time to make the move across the pond!

I was pretty sure SCEA used to have a notification page. I am pretty sure I used it just recently. I think they took it down recently due to this attack.

All you gotta do is come to N4G. When the psn is back up im sure you'll see dozens of stories about it on the front page lol
Colmshan1990  +   1678d ago
It's BACK!
At least I assume that's what the 'on' logo means.
It's ten to five in the morning in Ireland, my PS3 is downstairs and I ain't turning it on now.
Sleepy time for colmshan1990.

I take that back. I just tried to sign in on the PC.
Didn't work. :(
Now, it's sleep for me.

that on button doesnt mean a thing...i saw it on as well and still couldnt sign in...just be patient and wait(for all ppl to read) dont u guys rather wait and let sony make sure everything is safe so this wont happen any time offense but half of the ppl complainin are probably kids
Colmshan1990  +   1678d ago
I agree.
Single-player gaming is generally better than online anyway. And absolutely NOTHING beats local multiplayer.

"why N4G not report this news? "
YOU can submit news you find too! check the n4g rules :)
Inception  +   1678d ago
Really? thx for the info :)
ivant  +   1678d ago
Probably because a lot of submissions are troll bait - not news -- especially the mulitplat screen shot comparisons which N4G gets a ton of.
Donthizz  +   1678d ago
are servers in Japan up?

Get the latest on PSN service outages.

We sincerely regret that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been suspended, and we are working around the clock to bring them both back online. Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming,===we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.===

We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.

Follow us on Twitter @PlayStationEU for live updates.

Thank you for your patience.

I'd sooner just turn my Ps3 on and find out in less than 20 seconds.

And if it's still not working, just switch off and enjoy the rest of my day.

Luckily I'm just not as fanatical about regularly playing Warhawk and Killzone 2 as I use to be, which makes this PSN downtime no big deal.

Right, but it's easier to hit the F5 key than to always power on your PS3 and hit the X button. You're on the net on a PC right now, anyway.

the eu blog has the psn network icon, but its green then when you sign into psn network its red.
