Apocwhen1959d ago

LMAO, hilarious post. Thanks!

And I haven't been signed out since, I just checked and I'm still signed in now (on their websites)

I did this as I read somewhere that by signing in through the web and the PS3 itself that I may be able to stay logged in even if the servers were to go down due to all of the people rushing to get back online.

tehpees31959d ago

I tried to change my password two days ago and it said an email will be with me in 24 hours. still waiting for that email but honestly I'm happy with waiting

ravinash1959d ago

I never got my email either.
Just tried logging onto the playstation and that let me reset my password and got on about 24 hours after they said the system was up.
Days later I still never saw that email.

hmmmm1959d ago


Yeah same happened with me, i waited over 24 hours for the email and it never came so i just went back to the website and tried to log in again, that time the email came within 2 minutes.

RBLAZE19881959d ago

You helped me wake up with a chuckle hahaha...Nice post

Now i'm off to play the witcher rpg this year

Jack-H1959d ago

Lol that made me think of the architect from the matrix. Good stuff man.. KAAAAAAZZ!

nycredude1959d ago

After their upgrade in security that is probably not too far from the truth. I am sure they have serious network monitoring software in place.

DatNJDom811959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

Why am I able to log into psn? I live in US. Nevermind. My bad.

DARKrage341959d ago


That's what I'd say if I were Kaz...

Title is misleading, this only affects websites signing into PSN, not the PS3 for online gaming.

BX811959d ago

So the title was correct, you just assumed that it was online gaming.

Death1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

Under the description it says (PlayStation Network,PS3). Yeah, I can see how some idiot would assume this is for the PS3 and not PC which is clearly evident...


paintsville1959d ago

This doesn't surprise me in the least. It is PSN afterall.

Soldierone1959d ago

Thank you. Had a feeling it was just a misleading title so i didnt bother clicking it.

Hey Guys.

Please note that PSN sign in is currently unavailable for the following services:
PlayStation forums
PlayStation Blog
Music Unlimited via the web client
All PlayStation game title websites

Unfortunately this also means that those who are still trying to change their password password via or will be unable to do so for the time being. This is due to essential maintenance and at present it is unclear how long this will take.

In the meantime you will still be able to sign into PSN via your PlayStation 3 and PSP devices to connect to game services and view Trophy/Friends information.

hotrider121959d ago

not able to log in PSN since all these rumors claim its back up and runing changed password yes, anything else no.

Kurisu1959d ago

I was surprised it let me re-enter my password straight away, with no confirmation about my previous email, or extra security measures to make sure it was me. I could have been anybody logging in.

Soldierone1959d ago

Was thinking that too. Didnt have to put in the old password or anything. Even on accounts that were not activated on my new PS3 yet...

likedamaster1959d ago

ugh... Some more Sony fail.

thorstein1959d ago

From PS Blog:

"We temporarily took down the PSN and Qriocity password reset page. Contrary to some reports, there was no hack involved. In the process of resetting of passwords there was a URL exploit that we have subsequently fixed."

thorstein1959d ago

That is funny. A disagree for a direct quote from PS Blog.

UnbiasedGamer1959d ago

Once again..This is just terrible and when will it stop, I am one of those who can't change their password. The email which I got 2 days later from the day of request. After PSN going back down again then up again...and now the site is down. Sony get your act together.
