Sony has announced on its PlayStation blog that the PlayStation Store however it’s not running smoothly just yet.
snork you crazy bastard
Don't bother replying. It's the only way they can go away. Report for trolling and move on.
But... you've just replied to his comment =/
@Ace, he's talking about replying to snork directly, using the reply link ON his comment.
Downloading Uncharted 2 dlc codes and infamous. Did get the 8071D36 error but try again and it will work.
exactly just come the f down people today the want it to work asap day1 100%.
NOOOOO! Why would I want the Playstation store to work asap on day 1? That would be stupid considering it was down for over a month. How retarded of me
codes? what is this
i got the uncharted 2 game of the year edition and it comes with 35$ codes/dlc
kinda bs...the early adopters of the game have to pay for DLC on top of the 60 bucks we paid. they pulled the same thing with Fallout 3. very annoying.
I think it's just volume, I got an 803???? code, can't remember exactly, but a minute later everything is downloading fine.
Downloading "Infamous 2 Demo :)
Infamous 2 demo?
That's what happens when millions of people are trying to log in all at once. Shit's gonna crash, lol! I was able to get in long enough to download inFamous 2 and Red Faction Armageddon. inFamous 2 is now officially a day one purchase and RFA....I can wait a bit, though the mech part was a freaking blast.
Red Fraction? That demo has been up for 2 weeks now? Ohhhh, thats right..u dummies only have 1 console
No this is what happens when servers are built cheaply or without care. Live went through this in its infancy and so will ps3. It takes time and learning from mistakes to make a strong stable network which I firmly believe ms has now achieved and sony wikll eventually. Just hope it doesn't cost them billions more to find that out.
@Jazz4108 The issue with Live being down initialy had to do with not having enough resources prepared for the flux of online account creations. They surpassed their forecast of initial adopters by much more then they could handle at one time. They quickly brought in more servers and resources to handle the amount of people. Sony on the other hand had a very reasonable account of the number of people on their service and should be estimating that nearly ALL PSN users would be rushing to update their accounts. The last thing Sony neeeds is minor hicups when trying to rebrand their online experience. I am not sure how regionally segregated their servers are but they surely should be at least temporarily adding servers to offset the amount of Flux they know they will see. We always had at least 1 back up (reserve)server for each 2 active servers on our net. Sony should have the means to boost their servers by at least 25% prior to the reboot of PSN. Something they definetly should have been talking about at the board meetings.
Holy cow the trolls are out for blood tonight. I own both the PS3 and the 360, it's not my fault the 360 doesn't have anything worth buying. Don't think I've turned it on in months...should give it a good dusting, thanks for the reminder orange.
After 2-3 tries on each operation I succeeded to download tons of stuff, redeem a PSN card and spend it in 5 minutes. A bit of patience doesn't hurt. Edit: servers are waaay faster in EU now, even with that much traffic.
Go under LMB Game list PSN store ,it work!!!!!!
Had a look through and there were a couple of highlights but to be honest, I did expect more high grade content and not so much digital junk.
They are having another update tomorrow with more content.
The big stuff will probably go up just before E3.
My PSN keeps “timing out.”
keep trying i had to do it a few times before i was in but i got through
Yeah I kept going into the store (sound never gets old, like trophy sound) and I squeezed in the inFAMOUS 2 demo so my crappy day is GREAT now! Your advice helped, thanks and to anyone reading this just keep going in and about the 5th or 6th time you'll be in. GET THAT INFAMOUS 2 DEMO!
Im at 41% download inFAMOUS 2 !!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSS
I'm 65% yesssss
2.6 GB..... On my data package, no thanks!
I downloaded the demo for inFAMOUS, Motorstorm, 3 episodes of Nikita, video for infamous, uncharted, Qore, Socom theme, RE5 avatar, and one out of the two cases for LA Noire before it gave me the error code. Now im off to work for the day so hopefully everything will be running much more smoothly when I get home later today.
I can't wait for the where is the welcome back content articles. you know they are coming. Edit wait found one already waiting on approval i knew it wouldn't take long. people have to find something to complain about.

Would you mind telling me how large the demo file size is please? Thanks
2.6 GBs right?
And there's a lot of them errors!
Sense you make none
get tired of sitting on SONY's Weiner I mean really so pathetic. They had the biggest network FAIL in the history of the internet probably and you guys still find ways to make excuses for them, incredible.
Shutup Deathmetal Sony are so cool, they make TV's and things that make sound come out of them and Bluray players and, and Playstations and and TV's. I know man they are so pathetic sometimes.
Wait? the NA store is up? I keep trying to goto it but get that error.
still in maintinance....I will give it until friday though...
uh...the store is up for psp....i was on it last night at midnight.....and it is now 1:50 in the afternoon
Was getting the error code.....but its on.t the time I posted I was not able to log on...
i got an error the first time i tried downloading something but just tried again and it worked, never got the error again after that
Yes it's normal, millions of users rushed to store today. but im wondering where's welcome back free games?! :-?
Is the UK store up??? Must check tonight (aaargh can't wait)
if your getting the error just go back and retry, lot of free games on the store, go buy stuff people..
so much time for fixing, and they still can't get it right... sad :/
....over flow of traffic.... try to think for once in your life...the store comes up so everyone rushes to get on and downloads all the free stuff.. even if each person downloaded 1 thing and one thing only, that is 70 million things being downloaded at once...
70 million users are NOT downloading at once you (beep). People are at work or out and about like any typical Thursday. Not everyone is in front of their PS3 downloading games or movies, you child. Is your entire friends list online all the time, so why would they be now? No one even knows the store is back up except your jobless (beep) because you have nothing else better to do.
wow the last part was just an example but way to take it seriously...next time i will make sure i put ex. before the statement and really man...what is this third grade with the name calling....and yes last night after work i came home and saw that the store was online...so how about we grow up a little bit orangey and stop being so immature...and on a side note...i have a very secure job with great pay and benefits, and i bet you will never be on the same level as me in the job market, let alone on the same level of respect. now i will let you get to your life full of insults. see what i did there....i wrote a comment, and didnt once name call or swear....but at the same time you call me the child...ironic..yes.. come find me when you grow up some...and then we can talk p.s. i gave you a +bubble(funny) for trying, because i know you really had to work to come up for that comment
Finally i can redeem my code for Dirt 3!!
Anyone know when the welcome back package will be available on the store?I checked and it wasnt there!
they decided to cancel that package to help cover losses.
lol y u spreading lies?
welcome back package will be release later this week.Sony is making sure PS store is secure before they release tha welcome back program. So hopefully Friday or Saturday everything will b running smoothly.
Lovely stuff thanks.
They are updating the store again on Friday. It will probably be included in that update. If not I would gues Tuesday at the latest.
Who else is loving spending all the money they don't have!?
Just wait a few minutes and you can get in again. Pointless article is pointless -_-
Where''s the store's PS+ content that was there before it went down? I wanted to download the KZ3 map-pack for free and now it seems it's been taken of the PS+ content list.
A lot of past PS+ content is removed from PS+, simply because it would otherwise defeat the purpose of being subscribed all the time. People would just subscribe for one month out of the year and download the last years worth of deals. It would be nice if the store recognized that you've 'been a plus member since x date', and still allowed you to obtain past deals, yet may have simply missed out due to real life, or not owning the game, or any other issue.
I understand what you mean, but this was content, that was there the day they went offline and is gone the day it comes back online. I'd rather they'd leave the old content up for two more days and then change it when the free PS+ kicks in. I guess they cant please everyone.
i'm here at EU All the old content are there plus some nice surprises that begin with Pain and ends with Burnout paradise and Streets on Rage 2 etc just brilliant
I'm in EU (Holland), and believe me, not all content is there (well not the content that was there the last day the Store was online).
you should always pick the plus content you want even if you can't download it . i don't have KZ3 AM but i still activated my maps . and once i'll get it back i'll just have to get it from my download list . You should always do that
weird, very weird. maybe it is based on regions. cuz i checked again right now. KZ map pack is there. POP is there, Sonic and old avas too
