A lot of people expected that the PSN would come back online today or tommorow. The Japanese government however wants answers of Sony before they can bring the PSN back online.
Ow dear God, will we ever see the PSN online again. It has been a long time since I went online ^^
It doesn't mean PSN won't be activated before May 6. May 6 is the deadline as to when they want the questions answered. So if Sony answer them today then it fair to assume PSN could be activated tonight, tomorrow or whenever. Edit: @ Kingsora...But you get my point though?
But they have to make a report. I assume such a report isn't made in an hour considering how much information they have to give
The psn is not close to coming back online. There is no reason for sony to "secretly" turn in back online. If they were close to restarting it, they would have at least a target day. I think we are looking at at least friday for North America.
@Washington-Capitals actually I suspect they will want to sneak it back online.To prevent server overload it would be best to turn it on wait a bit then let everyone know.
@ Dark_King....I Agree! Its funny you mention that because I was just thinking about the amount of people who will scramble to jump online if Sony makes a announcement of activating the servers. It would make more since to turn it on allowing some to download patches then make an announcement.
They have to do it before the weekend, otherwise I suspect it won't be until next monday. I advise them to start with a small country like Holland to make sure it all goes smooth (no personal interest whatsoever, lol).
PSN is like a girlfriend who just broke up with you...you want to see her(it) and play with her (it), but you can't sigh...what a tease :'(
If PSN is like a girlfriend, I can still play with her. She just temporarily doesn't like the idea of bringing other girls into the picture. Hopefully she'll get over herself and do what she was built to do.
SEE WHAT I MEAN...LOOK AT WHAT GAMESPOT POSTED. http://www.gamespot.com/new...
Do people understand that if Sony rushes to get PSN up when its not ready that it could be worse than if they had never taken it down? Hell, this new security update might brink consoles for all we know.
lol hi i know how you feel about being offline from your ps3 i feel the same way to about mines i cant wait for them to bring it back up but till then ill be patient
dang i made a bet that it would be up by tmrw to well here's to hopin!
The other day my buddy loaned me Black Ops (its rubbish) i put the disk in as you do "Update Available" downloaded/installed it, didnt think anythin of it So today (well, right now) i put GT5 in (its been a while) and theres an update "301mb" Summin must be working, its a good sign of things to come
There are separate servers used to distribute updates. Game updates have NEVER been effected by the recent shutdown of PSN.
So, why can't game demo's be on separate servers too or the game's official websites? In in this day and age there shouldn't be anything taxing as in downloading a demo to flashdrive and then installing it on the PS3.. seems stupid we have to wait for PSN to get back on it's feet.
What kind of title is this?
an epic one
My guess is friday for the U.S.
I hope it comes back tonight so I can play portal 2 and MK I'm sick of playing my 360 and PC games.
OK Someone clarify their shit here! One article confirms its back online in Japan and the other doesn't. What the hell is going on?
Sony said in its blog that the japan thing was just a rumour. its still offline everywhere.
If you guys remember...the psn was down for a week...it was last tuesday when they gave us info about stolen info and they said that it was going to be back up within the week...today marks the end of that week...but yet..this past Sunday...they said within the week..which gives us until next Sunday all of a sudden....and now this may 6th government thing...once again SONY is beating around the bush......losing faith....xbox looks more inviting daily...and I hate to say that because Ive been a ps guy since the beginning
hi truthfully on that note i wouldnt bother getting a xbox im a big fan of ps3 i use to own one till i got the red ring of death from it just keeping it real plus it costs to play online lmao hey if you got money like that go for it but as for me a true ps3 fan i will not convert for anything sony Ps3 is the best ever!
I'm sure Sony is already prepared for this.So hopefully PSN back on tonight or tomorrow
cheers sparticus for pointing that out, monday for the US, and i work for an independent internet maintenance company who is currenly working with sony uk, so its the truth.
just thought i'd let you guys know ok my job is at risk leaking these dates btw
Why would you do it then? But props if you're telling the truth, but i don't think i believe you completely. edit: I see that you can't answer. Only got three bubbles. Send me a msg please if you want to answer.
when will PSN go back online?
idk been playing xbl & steam
iv been hearing that 6th of may is when the are puting psn back on but im not 100% sure soo yer im hanging for a game to i feell for you hahahahah
disagree with my comment
agree with my comment
gimmie some bubbles
If that's true I'm "this" close to starting a few political assassinations...who needs bureaucratic a-holes when the alternative is online gaming anyway ^_^
come on already just get the shit back up already and concentrate on going after the assclowns responsible! hope they die in a fire!
people said on facebook youtube and otha sites that it will be on on the 3rd that was yesterday ?? dose any 1 no for sure wen i will be back need to playCOD*COD*
i wish sony has a delorian and they could go 88 miles an hour to travel back in time of course as we all know we dont have garbage to spare so bottoms up to time travel!
Hopefully the PSN is back by friday a Welcome Back PSN Party can be made
I think in all likelihood they will kick it on, with no advanced warning about 1-2am pacific time not sure which day but sometime this week. They don't want the service to crash because everyones jumping online at the same time, they already look bad enough as it is.
i was thinking the same... its most likely gonna be a weekday 4 less traffic... i think its gonna be either wednesday or thursday early AM mornings
Get in line Japan! The US Gubment wants answers too. And when Barrack "Osama Killa" Obama has questions for you, betta be ready to give answers coz he means b'ness!
moda fucin congress... >_> lol
just turn the F#@$%^ thing on...
in japan maybe, but many of sonys servers are stationed in the US, japan cant control what the US based sony companies do in the US. they can stop the japan psn from going live though
I'm thinking now this it will probably be another week. Don't they have better things to do like hound Bonds & Clemens lol
as this specific week progresses, people are just going to get more and more restless, sony had better hurry up
getting annoying. on another note mass effect 2 is holding it down for me
Alot of financial news sites and and reuters say end of may.
if psn is still offline on 7th may, then il sell my ps3 and buy myself a damn xbox for sure ....
agreed only im not selling my ps3..but i will get a 360 and probably pick up Halo:Reach
Just phoned sony helpline today and spoke to them they said the uk psn should be online by friday
i dont think so!
hey Beckylikeschocolate lmao we both playing the same game i feel the same way as you lol i love that game i m waiting for part 3 i played them all so far but everyone all my ps3 fans calm down they will have it together soon hope yall know they caught that hacker who did all this they showed it on the news where i stay so we got good news just letting everyone know that doesnt know by now ill keep you all updated also i miss being online with all my friends :(
