PSN and Playstation Store giving errors aplenty this morning

Yeah, I think they should've delayed it a day, just to work out these kinks.

Agreed - I don't think a single day would have made an enormous difference (unless the schedule of Sony and its partners ahead of E3 next week is too crazy and it had to go up today).

keep going back and then selecting whatever option you want, i have already downloaded everything that is free for plus, its to be expected, especialy with the amount of trafic thats going through the servers.

Servers are pretty busy.

It can also be the result of a strong affluence that make the servers very busy. Everyone want to access to the platform at the same time, it will need few hours to have a more fluid traffic on the PSS and then make the servers less busy.

Anyway i already purchased some of the games i want, no problem, it works and it was quite fast here in Europe.

Works mostly fine to me, errors are the effect of extremely heavy traffic.

I don't give FACK! I'm DLing the inFamous 2 demo right now and I'm going crazzzyyyyy waiting for it.

this happens with every server that gets strain, these "kinks" arent very fixable unless theyre long term problems, which these most likely wont be.

its like intermittent power outages, if consumers want more energy than an energy company can produce people loose power; like energy hubs, server farms are constantly updated to stay ahead of demand, but theres always going to be a point where theres just too much demand to satisfy - in summer energy consumption is high, at launch the ps store consumption is high. power consumption will die down just as ps store usage will

Yeah I can't get in. As I've said elsewhere, as long as I can access the store properly by the time SSFIV:Arcade Edition hits next tuesday, I'm happy.

even though it has the errors you can still download stuff you just need to be patient.

Managed to get onto the store after 4 attempts. That's the easy part over, because now I have to wait 8-10 hours until I can play the Infamous 2 demo lol. Yes my connection SUCKS.
