Just a sign in issue apparently. Could be worse.
Allelujah00  +   1720d ago
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
TreMillz  +   1720d ago
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.
Allelujah00  +   1720d ago
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.

I think I undestand why some say,
"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.
jadenkorri  +   1719d ago
just great, every time PSN goes down for a micro second... articles of it being down will be written and posted... right on
Legion  +   1719d ago

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.
lil Titan  +   1720d ago
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
Halochampian  +   1720d ago
or you could play offline... like the good ole days
lil Titan  +   1720d ago
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
Halochampian  +   1720d ago
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...
lil Titan  +   1720d ago
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?
Army_of_Darkness  +   1720d ago
@lil titan
Or you could just hand me your account! Cause I can use them 5 bubbles you still have there;-) hehehe!
lil Titan  +   1719d ago
@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
Legion  +   1719d ago
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.
lil Titan  +   1719d ago
rather just delete it. its always gonna be in my mind that im still a member

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.
BLACKBOIJONES  +   1720d ago
Its not down....Ive been gaming online for the past 4hours since i woke up!!!
HolyOrangeCows  +   1719d ago
"Sony responds...." 23 hours ago
"PSN is back up" 23 hours ago

Sorry, media. You must be really disappointed.
LOGICWINS  +   1720d ago
"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.

^^Your damn right. Shit like this shouldn't be happening this often.
Jihaad_cpt  +   1720d ago
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.
xPhearR3dx  +   1720d ago

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.
LOGICWINS  +   1720d ago
@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!

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?
Lol i was too slow it's already back just signed in.

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 funny that whenever a PSN article comes to light, you see XBox Trolls coming from beneith their bridges.

And its pathetic to see every online addict cry over the fact that they can't play Call of Doodie for 5 minutes and swearing they buy an XBox...

Jeez, you are pathetic people...
