Sony Corp. (6758)’s PlayStation Network and Qriocity online services remain shut as of today, Shigenori Yoshida, a Tokyo-based spokesman said. Sony is uncertain when it can resume the services, Yoshida said by phone today.
Nice definative response.
May 31st is the deadline when EVERYTHING should be up, online play will come sooner since Sony has stated they will have 2 stages for PSN restoration.
Thank you for realizing that LordMarius. I was in the middle of posting that it says "..to restart the services FULLY by 31." Anyone who failed to realize this needs to pay more attention to what they read and stop skimming. And Sony has already stated that PSN will be back up with most online features except the access of the PS store. So this clearly states the obvious additionaly with a confirmed date(assuming the authors credibility), which is a plus. I am a owner of both consoles but the xbox fanboys are too quick to jump the gun(bet they always have this problem) and just start to assume before thinking and making bold comments which are more fictional than factional.
I call BS article. Camon ppl you supposed to beleave he rang sony.
Bet you didn't believe when PS3 was first hacked...or when PSN was first sad to be down for a whole week...then two weeks and now 3 weeks.
Lol thats stupid comment. Course i knew been following this up since geohotz well b4 then ever since first jail break actually so yeh i knew. Watched all the anon vids. Thay best u got by the way.
What do they mean when they say 'full service' by May 31st? Didn't they say online games service will be up first, then Music, and others services will be up after. I'm confused! :s
Dear god :( I was hoping for PSN to come back today.
Nope try again
I'm actually glad the PSN is down, this will give people chance to explore the great singleplayer library of the PS3. PlayStation was always about singleplayer, we must go back to our origins. I hope people will find the true meaning and essence and strenth of the PlayStation brand. Ofcourse, I love the PSN too, its part of the PlayStation family, but singleplayer above all!
Lol istanbull, that is some instant bull! Thats like saying xbox 360 is awesome because it uses dvd's and the original xbox also used dvds so that is awesome! No, just no. I'm glad you're trying to be optimistic but lying to yourself and us is just sad. PSN did NOT take away the ability to play single player games, they have always been there but once you're done with the single player, what then? I can play GoW 3 alot but come on, 3 weeks? No. PSN is an extra option for this generation, I'm not gonna suddenly love my ps3 more just because it is offline and reminds me of PS1 days and legacy and brand and blah blah blah CROCK! Lol true essence and strength of playstation brand, ha ha ha ha man take that archaic touchy feely stuff outta here.
Instantbull, Stop posting the same comment. Sure playing single player games are fun, but I miss playing against other people, it's better then playing against a computer.
Oh crud. I'm going to lose half of my friends on my friends list. Good thing I have other things to occupy me in the meantime but I feel bad for those that don't. I'll wait it out since I had to wait for nearly 4 months before getting a new PS3 to replace the one that got YLOD. The PSN outage is nothing compared to how long I had to wait before getting a new console. That and I have assignments due in so I can't waste much time to be honest.
same here i got a big ass assignment to hand in by 26th.
yawns.wake me when its back up please.
Are they unsure when to restart the service or unsure the service will ever restart again?
this only confirms my suspicions. they are planning a surprise psn party for us all
Crap May 31st? There's gonna be a lot more of pissed off people! I'm just barely starting to care since I've passed homefront and Uncharted 2. Also got Gt5 back for my friend so I'm playing that one and FIFA 11 for the meanwhile. Might actually think about completing my brothers Resistance 2 if this is true. Trophy hunting! :D
Thats for FULL services. Online gaming should be back before then. Other things like the Store, credit card input, Qriocity, the music service, and so on will come back at later dates but before May 31st....hopefully.... Saying that kinda reminds me of when PS3 first launched...and its several release dates.
The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged, he said. Did I miss something? May 31, first time I hear about this, and I don't like the sound of it. Three more weeks? Daayum. Edit: Soldierone, where did you get that info? You sure, I don't like this end of May thing one bit.
On the PS blog they said that they would roll out some PSN services earlier, PSN will be fully functional near the end of the month.
Another one of these?
WOW i really hate to say this but if this is true Sony will never recover from this!!!! And all you fanboys need to stop acting like this is ok bc it's not Sony fucked up!!
Some people in Alabama are still without power today, almost 2 weeks after tornadoes hit that area. They're not sitting around saying, "power company fucked up!" because unfortunate things happen, and there's a process to get services back online once those things happen. Get some perspective.
hope its on this week , may31 is deadline people say but wat happens wen we get to may 31st n they say it be up in another week ?
It better be up by the 31st, if not they shouldn't bother going to e3. Because I'm going to be too pissed if they don't have it up but talk about their stupid games we can't play online. Man, I haven't gotten this mad at gaming since...ever I think.
I'm a big Sony supporter but I have to agree. May 31st would be absolutely ridiculous. I have/had a feeling it might take this log. I wish I had known it was so easily hackable---I would have bought more games on my digital only PSP Go. :o(
all this means is full services will be on may 31st. it dus not state much of anything els if the psn stays offline until then it would be messed up. i would think the online part off psn should be back up in the mean time but if its not there will be anger. i don't know what els we can do but hope hope Sony gives us a cast iron date for online to come back. how ever if the online dus not come back until may 31st i for would be outraged at Sony. and what how the hell as an Alabama power company got anything to do with pan. i don't know what you smoking but splash the ash. Sony needs to make another announcement im sure they will very soon. to clear this up
