Rumor: PlayStation Network (PSN): Online Status – Japan is Live, Possible Dates for US, UK

VG: have some good news for those of you who are asking when will the psn will be back up, as it looks like Sony are now delivering on their promise to bring the PlayStation Network back online this week, as reports are suggesting that service has already resumed in Japan.


We believe that he reason non-japanese users can't log on to a japanese account, has something to do with the new firmware update

NICE!, I wonder if I can get online with my Japanese account?

vgamersHD2668d ago

im going to try it too and will update the post.

MaxXAttaxX2668d ago (Edited 2668d ago )

Not possible unless you're actually in the Japanese region.

Not sure if totally up yet. Should wait for more news.

HappyGaming2668d ago

Well at list one good thing came from this...

I bet Bin Laden regretted putting his real address on his PSN account xD

Still down in Japan.

Reports are suggesting that is crap.

Tired2668d ago

I should imagine that only genuine japanese i.p addresses will let through.

Sony knows everybody has multiple accounts, I think they may attempt to limit traffic at least at first

im-12-years-old2668d ago

Are you from japan Knushwood? If not then I don't think your opinion matters.

Knushwood Butt2667d ago

I'm in Japan. My IP is from Japan. I've just tried again now. 8:23am in the morning here.

It is still down.

That's not opinion, but fact.

Scary692668d ago

We might still get PSN up today maybe later this afternoon. It would be nice to get an exact date though.

Dir_en_grey2668d ago

OMFG I still have money left in my Japanese account.

If the firmware update makes it that I can no longer access my Japanese account then all my money goes to waste?

Either way F*ck you hackers F*CK YOU!!!!!!!!

SephireX2667d ago

Speaking of Bin Laden, I'm glad he's dead. At least now I won't have to fix up with him...

egidem2667d ago (Edited 2667d ago )

Here's hoping for me waking up tomorrow on a working PSN! This is making me bounce in excitement.

Edit: Damn's it's a rumor. PSN is NOT up in Japan :(

knifefight2667d ago

I'm in Japan. It's not happening.

elite-shot2668d ago

If only i was japanese...

TheTwelve2668d ago (Edited 2668d ago )

Quite happy not to be Japanese in 2011, myself.

Anyway, I just hope I get PSN back before I go on vacation this week. Would suck to have it gone all this time and then for it to come back when when I'M gone.


PS. Ah, but I'd have my PSP....

elite-shot2668d ago

Why am i getting disagrees for that :L i'm jsut saying i want psn..

DoomeDx2668d ago

Japan is having a really hard time right now. Not just because of PSN.

If you dont know what im talking about, you should follow the news more often

ShAkKa2668d ago

The fact that you don't know why you are getting disagrees makes me a saaad panda.

HappyGaming2668d ago

let me make this clear...

People clicked disagree because unlike you they would proffer not to be Japanese this year because although they would get PSN back first they could possibly have lost friends and relatives in the earthquake and tsunami that happened not so long ago.

So people disagree with you because they do not wish they were japanese right now...

In other words they DO NOT agree that what you said is a favourable thing...

Is that clear enough for ya?

sarshelyam2668d ago

I'm fairly certain elite's comment wasn't made out of malicious intent, simply an oversight.

Kran2668d ago (Edited 2668d ago )

Shouldn't be too long now for US/UK xD

I can finally do Portal 2 Co-Op!

Tired2668d ago (Edited 2668d ago )

Apparently due due popular opinion there is to be no Portal co-op for you....the masses have spoken.

It appears the masses are also douchebags...

Bring on the portals!

@Kran I'll race ya!

Kran2668d ago (Edited 2668d ago )

Haha. I've already completed the co-op on 360, but I want to complete it on the PS3 with my friend ;)

I want Portal 2 to become my first platinum. I have 1000/1000G on the 360 version, so it shouldnt be so hard on the PS3 either :)

genocidegeneral2152668d ago

you can play portal co op now,
get a real life friend (:
