The PlayStation Network has suddenly gone down just recently. Sony has now responded to the reports of users not being able to sign in and also give some advice on the matter.
Just a sign in issue apparently. Could be worse.
Yup should be fixed soon. However the whole "dont sign out" thing kinda irks me. I just recieved the message you are now signed out of PSN. I didnt have a choice to not sign out! -_-
How would you know that? It says they are looking into the issue. For all we/they know it could have been compromised again but I hope not! That would really suck.
I'm a cup half full guy unlike the majority of pessimists on here. Besides they actually put out a statement a few minutes after it went down unlike the previous debacle where we were placed in the dark for a while. Also the chances of a new security infrastructure being hacked within a couple of days seems improbable so I doubt it's a hack like most are already assuming. So I doubt it is a major issue.
PSN didn't "go down" because it was compromised, they took it offline because it was compromised! So they would absolutely know if it was compromised and they chose to take it offline again!
Looks like it's back up again
to all the girls complaining if it so easy for them to fix it, go to them and point out he situation so it can be fixed quickly. Or better yet, how about you go and fix it for them. Since your so sure these are not trained specialist is network programming and you know you can do a better job, go do it. Oh wait you can't you say? Oh really? Then sit back and shut up till they fix the problem.
Despite me being right I got more disagrees than the people who were wrong! How I love the N4G community! Edit: nevermind it changed as I posted.
Then what the hell was I doing online all week? lol
Bu bu bu i want to play my pwee s free now!!
"Im a ps3 gamer" To be honest with you guys, psn sucks, I'm not comparing it to nothing. When it comes back on I hope there were some changes made to the store, a more inviting feel.
just great, every time PSN goes down for a micro second... articles of it being down will be written and posted... right on
@Allelujah00 Here is how I look at the cup issue... It is half empty when I pay for it. It is half full if I never expected it in the first place. If I am really thirsty then I wonder when the refill is coming.
ill be back on soon *sigh* i guess i have to go out and have a life now, thanks Sony oh and that is a joke for those who dont have a sense of humor
or you could play offline... like the good ole days
it was a joke, my comment was not to be taken seriously but obviously people on N4G read what they want rather than read whats there what N4G people see it s a joke, my comment to be taken seriously people on N4G i hate you
Yea? And I was making a statement that people can just play offline like how gaming use to be. I knew you tried to make a funny...
no harm done it was more of a response to the disagree fairy's lol im getting sick of N4G and the retarded fanboys everyone is too serious for a gaming website, how do i delete my account?
Or you could just hand me your account! Cause I can use them 5 bubbles you still have there;-) hehehe!
@army nah i rather delete it, if i could donate my bubbles (which i have no idea of what your talking about) i would give them to ya
Maybe the disagrees are the N4G people just not laughing? If you want to be a comedian then get used to the hecklers. Now the remarks you posted about basically being persecuted for your post and the crying bit. Now THAT was funny. p.s. just stop posting... that is the simplest way to end your account.
rather just delete it. its always gonna be in my mind that im still a member
@ lil titan. copy this link into your browser (while logged in) http://n4g.com/account/sett... and go to close account tab.
I think it going down has something todo with maybe the PSstore coming back online which was rumored to be at the end of this month.
Its not down....Ive been gaming online for the past 4hours since i woke up!!!
"Sony responds...." 23 hours ago "PSN is back up" 23 hours ago Sorry, media. You must be really disappointed.
"PSN is experiencing a couple of issues with sign in right now, looking into it, in the meantime don’t sign out!" Just fix it Sony. EDIT: Damn, disagree fairies are at full force today lol.
so they are damned if they give updates and they are damned if they do not, shut up
^^Your damn right. Shit like this shouldn't be happening this often.
um on a network this large when building it from the ground up basically there are bound to be problems why are people so impatient, it's ridiculous that people would expect there not to be teething problems.
@Jihaad_cpt How are people being impatient? It's not like this just happened out of the blue and PSN was fine for months. PSN was down a whole month, they finally get it working again and now it's down again. I'd say people have been patient for quite some time now. Sony needs to get their shit together aready.
@Jihaad- Yes, thats what ANNOUNCED maintenance hours are for. I understand that issues can occur in a large network....which is why its FINE if Sony tells me in ADVANCE that they will be taking down PSN for a couple hours to look for issues. THIS, on the other hand, is a RANDOM occurrence....which is why it bothers me. They were fixing PSN for what 2 WEEKS..and there are STILL sign in problems...get the hell outta here!
^Cry me a river.
Oh brother. Psn is already back online and youre still yammering about it.
Thanks for posting that, I can't connect to the page (guessing it's receiving a lot of traffic lol), this really is getting tedious though.
UNcharted 2 is olddd... haha :) good game :P buy sumin new ;) hehe
I hope it's not another breach...
Good thing I changed my personal info to a fake one...
Seems like a minor issue.
that is what everyone thought last time.
Logic isn't allowed on N4G.
ffs just cleared out the family and had an afternoon planned of socom 4 wtf sony , not a happy bunny
Heres what I say to those trolling these articles: Those who dont have a PS3, f**k off about taking the p**s out of it. You dont own one. So you shouldnt need to care.
Huh, probably will be online with in the hour. Oh well, its just video games. Life is not lost.
PSN IS DOWN AGAIN IT'S OVER GUYS PS3 DOOM!i expect 20 articles about the game thing in one day on n4g. i'll just be over here enjoy single player games once again because all i used psn for was black ops and uncharted 2.
What's worse? The articles being written or the fact that they get approved and commented on by the same people?
nevermind rant over im back on cyas guys
Back on, UK And the world didn't end.
LOL at the disagree - apparently the world did end!
You would think people would be a little more understanding after whats happened.
For them, it probably did end when PSN came back on...
Doesn't seem too bad. As long as we get things fix and the PSN store back sometime soon I'll live lol
its Back, just signed in
not again!!!!SONY must do something about psn. i'm so dissapointed!!! i had the first console but after 3 years crashed just like that...i bought a new one...i know ps3 is a magnificent piece but for those who are playing online games every time psn is down millions are dissapointed and angry. SONY must solve this problems because they are going to lose many customers...DEAR SONY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE IF I AM GOING TO GET AN XBOX!!!
Do you need a tissue?
...really dude, really?
I think you need t find a new hobby if you take this this seriously. Its kind sad you can't wait.
Must be working in Michigan as I just signed out and it let me sign right back in.
PSN back in İstanbul Bosphorus! Im in GTA4 airport on multiplayer right now...
It's only a sign in issue. Those who are still online can stay online it will probably be fixed shortly.And besides, didn't something similar happen with xbox live marketplace a few days ago? Edit. Lol i was too slow it's already back just signed in.
It's back in EU. It just lasted 100 troll comments this time :).
Seems like its back.
signed in go try guys
SOny - GET YOU ACT TOGETHER!
Sony is basically rebuilding the entire PlayStation Network. When they're reworking everything in a month, a few hiccups are expected. This was just a sign-in issue that seems to be fixed already.
Strange. I must have only affected some people. PSN wasn't down for me at all. Nice to see all the trolls and haters out in force as usual trying to cause trouble
It's times like this that can make even the most thick headed appreciate XBL.
It's working again
