kazuo hirai got a BIIIIIG red button on his desk
and he got hes eye peeled on a 100 monitor in front of him
all watching the internet and monitoring PSN

when ever he sees ANYTHING suspicious
he screams HHHHHAAAAAAAAXXXXXXXXXX and mash that red button to turn PSN off

Apocwhen2564d ago

LMAO, hilarious post. Thanks!

--------2564d ago

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.

tehpees32563d 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

ravinash2563d 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.

hmmmm2563d 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.

RBLAZE19882563d ago

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

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

Jack-H2563d ago

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

nycredude2563d 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.

DatNJDom812563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

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

DARKrage342563d 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.

BX812563d ago

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

Death2563d ago (Edited 2563d 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...


paintsville2563d ago

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

Soldierone2563d 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.

hotrider122563d ago

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

Kurisu2563d 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.

Soldierone2563d 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...

likedamaster2563d ago

ugh... Some more Sony fail.

thorstein2563d 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."

thorstein2563d ago

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

UnbiasedGamer2563d 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.
