Playstation Japan outlines the phased plan of the schedule to restart PSN as well as a detailed list of services and features to resume in their first steps towards bringing all of their services back online.
All I keep seeing is SOON SOON SOON!! I am ready to lose my *%#$. I just want some KZ3, Portal 2 and SOCOM action online already... Bahhhhhhhhh
well anyone who saw the conference would know. :/ im pretty sure this is old news.
I know really everything is tomorrow or this week, it's just something we have to cope with until it comes back. They said this week but then SOE was attacked so that may delay what happens to PSN. I understand its frustrating, I am too but patience is key to this whole situation unfortunatley as consumers we can't do anything about this.
@madcowz64 SOE wasn't attacked, it's servers were put down for updating because of the PSN intrusion. If you had been following it should be obvious, all Sony online services and networks had to be updated to close the breach points hackers used to invade PSN. You are not the first person saying it, not your fault, but there is already too much misinformation around, check your facts before spreading up the drama.
@Bishop-br, Sorry but I think you are wrong. SOE sent me an Email stating that they were attacked as well. Here is the first paragraph: "Dear Valued Sony Online Entertainment Customer: Our ongoing investigation of illegal intrusions into Sony Online Entertainment systems has discovered that hackers may have obtained personal customer information from SOE systems. We are today advising you that the personal information you provided us in connection with your SOE account may have been stolen in a cyber-attack. Stolen information includes, to the extent you provided it to us, the following: name, address (city, state, zip, country), email address, gender, birthdate, phone number, login name and hashed password." Based on that it seems that SOE was attacked either as part of the same attack as what they took the PSN down for or a separate attack.
This is old news. This was posted on the PS Blog several days ago... "In addition, PS3 will have a forced system software update that will require all registered PlayStation Network users to change their account passwords before being able to sign into the service."
@madcowz64 & Elwenil Yeah man, my bad. Although Sony did close other servers over the first intrusion, SOE was in fact attacked. I was following the first reports on monday... http://n4g.com/news/755264/... ...in those they state that the service was brought down due to recent intrusions, not because of a new one. But about 7 hours after (I just checked N4G submit history) this same e-mail you quoted were posted in here too... I missed it. My bad, I guess all the news coming every second, many times without anything new to add and actually misinforming, I got cought in the middle and spread the fud myself... My bad...
I agree, this is getting a little old..
who gives a rat ass just get it online!!!!
Play portal 2 on pc...it is free with ps3 :)
Don't you have to connect your PSN account with your Steam account to play it? I've heard people say they couldn't play it for that reason.
Yes you needed to have your PSN and Steam accounts linked before they shut it down to play Portal 2 on your PC otherwise the code will not work. Tried it and it tells me to link my PSN and Steam account first.
"Confirmed: PS3 to Receive 3.61 Update" "There is no official source of this news other than directly from the Japanese website using google translate." I see N4G hasn't changed much. *facepalm*
The feeling is mutual InFAMOUS1.. The feeling is Mutual. PSN is offline for about 2 weeks already and we are approaching the third. But according to the press conference held in Japan should be online again sometime this week and I really hope that wasn't just an assumption.
Why are you in a hurry to read "Help! The hackers stoled my information and updated my ps3 with firmware 3.61 and now its bricked!" articles? ;)
Like I said, people are getting desperate. It's getting crazy out there! Once PSN goes back online, I'm gonna have some fun. For now, I'm enjoying getting my ass kicked (again and again) playing Demon's Souls. I had a thought, wouldn't you guys love to like look into the future at say firmware update 7.61 to find out what features are in the firmware??
this is going to be one of those weeks again
This looks like the paper they got from the news press.
Enable password change "PlayStation 3" System Software Update ver.3.61 (soon) That's been there since flipping May 1st. I've finished all my single player games, I've been outside (it really isnt that great) now i just want my PSN back :(

lmao @ the outside joke
Man, put a warning to that thing... I spitted coffe all over my notebook! + Bubbles
Sony said so themselves in the Security update on their blogs, so why is this news? All I want now are: 1: PSN up and running, as secure as can be. and 2: The wankers how did this behind bars...
Im just dieing now..
Patience is the key. I just wish i had that key.
lol Wow Everyone going to become zombies. because of No PSN
so this is how the zombie apocalypse starts
kinda sad that PS3 users are the 1st to be the zombies!
I was just getting back into wkc to try and get the platinum before the sequel comes out in August so I'd like it to be up soon. Although I did just pick up New Vegas for 20 bucks.
Dude im doin the same exact thing...lol, awesome story and i bet WKC2 is goin to b just as good...lol long live PSN!!!!!!!!!
I really i want to play online and yell on the mic lol
to play music on the mic while i play black ops!!
we are all being friendly here but I REALLY HATE when people do that online -__-
The CIA hacked psn to crackdown Osama and obtain his cc info which later led to getting his adress. And Of course it's pretty hard because I wanted to play battlefield with friends. But never hit me hard because I only used my ps3 for movies and exclusive ps3 games. My collection only really grew on the 360 because I buy multiplatform games for the 360 most of the time and the online community is huge and dosent deteriorate as fast as the psn online players unless it's call of duty or any other popular games.
Osama played PlayStation O_o. Just goes to show that even terrorist perfer to play awesome games. Haha I kid I kid.
I don't believe Osama is really dead... But if true, what it changes? There will just be new one to continue his work.. I see it kinda funny when people were celebrating his death in US. I know this really didn't have much relation to your comment, but just my toughts.. :D
Actually, there are mixed feelings in the US. Some are celebrating while some are mourning the death of a human life. You can't believe everything you see on TV. ;) He IS dead, by the way. He is super dead.
I do know that obviously not all celebrate, but I ment the ones who does^^ But true, news here mainly showed the celebrating ones on TV, but media is most parts joke these days.
Bin laden was as much threat as a rabbit in a hole. I don't feel safer. For some reason I feel worse off.
*Boots up GTA San Andreas again* Another single player game to re-beat... (But fun as hell :D)
Sony if you find these guys give them to us. Make it offical and have a 'passing of the hackers' ceremony. Give them over to all the people they messed up doing this crap. And when we are finished kicking their @$$es, toss them in prison. That should appease everyone.
give the guy a kick in his ass, I don't think he's still be breathing 1/1000th of his way through! forget prison, THAT will sent him straight to the coffin lol!
Last tuesday Sony said info might have been compromised but also said psn will be back within the week...which would have been today...then sunday for the conference they said service will be back within the week...which pushed back the original tuesday date to sunday next week.....watch and see if their reported soe attack doesnt push it back to another within the week speech later this week...they are cleverly hiding their incompetence
Hopefully Sony will stick with the usual time and day for system updates, which in theory would mean later this evening, or tonight. Just an educated guess though.
oh god plz let it be tonight ^^
When will it be back damn it ? WHEN WHEN WHEN !! ? ?
WHEN TIME COMES!!!!! lol
Why do people blame SONY while everybody forgets about the Hackers who did it ?
I think it's the fact that they(Sony) won't give a solid date for anything for 2 weeks now and everyone is irritated. If they ever came out with a date to have it back up by everyone would still be talking about the hackers most likely. I think Sony should have given a rough estimate of how long this would've taken and just made sure that they would have gotten it back up before that date, that way we would all say "Hey, they got it back up and running before they announced. WTG Sony for staying on the ball." But instead they kept their mouths shut and ignored the most simplistic questions to be answered asked by fans and users. I just can't wait for it to be back up and playing with friends.
Yes..im bored guys..this sucks..i wish freddiew real life fps was out..id be out side right now playin..well hope this craps over with soon..and to the hackers that did this to all of us..when that real life fps does get released i hope you are there so i can shoot you in your face/faces..then i will teabag you over and over again. Youtube would be proud..even lady gaga would be like damm thats alot of views
I've been so bored I tried to teabag the cat....it wasn't the same.
What a mess.
gooo sony !!! hope you'll fix psn soon
I'm literally, ready to kill myself out of boredom..the only thing good about hackers is 'the movie'. And who the hell didn't see a firmware update coming? I'm sure most of us heard about it. This is old news.
Get xbox live. This is where multi console owners have the upper hand. Blind consumer loyalty has led to the ps fanboys refusing to get a 360 and miss out on the best of both worlds. True gamers own both consoles. Every gen since master system nes days I've owned all mainstream consoles
only comment on here that makes sense.
JUST TURN IT ONNNN!!!!!!!!
All I know is that PSN being down is getting expensive! Nothing but going downtown, spending money getting $#!t faced and then not remembering how I got home. This economy blows for their to be no PSN, so quit saying "SOON" and do it already!
look at the disagree LOL http://n4g.com/news/755786/...
