Whats funny about the video is not only this guy shows that he is clearly online but he just happens to have 3 friends online too. Its one thing if you are helping to test servers but whats the chances that 3 friends are too. I smell fakeness.

leogets2575d ago (Edited 2575d ago )

by a select few he may mean in his region. or he has faked it to get millions of subscibers wanting the next video update. hmmmm dont know man. everyone bullshits over the web i know that for sure lol

Istanbull2575d ago

It's definitely fake. He keeps advertising his shitty channel throughout the video. He doesn't show

1) a sign in process.

2) PSN is open for "select users" yet 3 friends are online.

3) Look on the top right "Download the full game today!" Bearing in mind PS Store is offline, it doesn't even say what game to download.

4) He is NOT PS+ member. He has a PS Plus but he isn't one! (check his YGC trophy card)

5) He doesn't even move the XMB. Video looks recorded on PC, and edited.

@Istanbull, nice copy and paste comment. you should refrain from using other peoples comments from youtube whilst implying that it was your comment.

Add speech marks.

NiKK_4192575d ago

Maybe he has a YouTube account and posted the same comment on there? I know I have one and i post the same comment on both sometimes

movements2575d ago (Edited 2575d ago )

Why are three of his friends chosen for the test? That's not random....Something seems fishy.

Edit: Anyway, I hope this is real. I'm overdue some KZ3 Helghast action.

movements2575d ago

And why doesn't he move the options and show us some stuff....I dunno.

BlueTemplar2575d ago

Not saying its legit but there wouldnt be much point in getting gamers to test network features in isolation - in that kind of scenario they would most likely get everybody involved to add each other as friends to test game invites, chat functions, etc

Oschino19072575d ago (Edited 2575d ago )

I want it to be real so well yeah its real! lol but really though if he has done this before for vids i see nothing fishy alothough at first i did think it was strange, I just hope it is real.

For everyone asking what are the chances 3 of his friends are also online, well if he has connections and was asked to test the service you would think perhaps some of those people also have PSN accounts and would also be testing, DERP! and another theory as to why he may not be moving around or going into anything may be the simply just asked him to log on and nothing else, he may not even be able to access any other services other then just being on.

I doubt it. it looks pretty legit to me!

Headquarters112575d ago should be forbidden from making any submissions on N4G

BloodyNapkin2575d ago

Why is it he is on the Home Icon, but the Playstation Home background isnt showing up? I call Fake....

Oschino19072575d ago

Only thing that really bothers me

gunbarrel21422575d ago

what if those are the other select gamers

xX-StolenSoul-Xx2575d ago (Edited 2575d ago )

Ok im not saying it's real or fake but this has alot of problems. One i keep seeing is that PS HOME background should be showing. Well that background only shows if you have PS HOME installed, I dont have it installed so the background does not show. It may b the same for him

mastiffchild2575d ago

Same as that Stolen. I don't have room for it on one of our old 60gigs that I never changed the HDD on and this would happen on that console too-exactly the same.

I, also, have no claims to this being real but I DO imagine there's SOME testing being done and if so someone, somewhere would leak it wouldn't they? That's the only thing-dunno how real or fake this one actually is but the scenario MUST be happening somewhere if PSN is seriously close to coming back.

he is hovering over the home icon without that image showing up of what home is so it might be fake

Emilio_Estevez2575d ago

Or home isn't back. They said it would come back at a later date.

Damiann2575d ago

Looks pretty real, his other video's are also about PSN and maybe he does have connections with SONY.

leogets2575d ago

hope your right brother. we are due to go back up surely lol

xPhearR3dx2575d ago

Going to call fake for a couple reasons. He didn't do ANYTHING the entire video but hover over an icon. He could have easily took the scrolling marquee from one of his previous videos and simply edited it into the video. This would be a very easy job considering his background is completely pitch black. Also the Playstation Home image should have loading after sitting on the icon for 2 minutes straight.

Eh that's just my thoughts.

Damiann2575d ago

In his previous video's, he isn't doing anything as well in the menu.

WitWolfy2575d ago

Wong he is doing something... LYING through his teeth. God what shit people will do when PSN offline

stuna12575d ago

It's fake! Look at the ticker bar next to the time, it's looping. Also the time is moving at an accelerated rate.

Oschino19072575d ago

Not sayin it is real but EPIC FAIL on your part, at :42 it goes to 2:50 and at 1:42 it goes to 2:51!!! also it may be on a loop since the whole system was rebooted and wouldnt have anything new scrolling yet except a basic message. Stop and think before you embarass your self...

Orionsangel2575d ago

The Service is coming back online slowly, not all at once. So it would make sense that some normal features would not be up and running yet.
