Yesterday saw the PSN partially taken down worldwide for another bout of maintenance that apparently did nothing. Today, the network seems to have gone down yet again for a number of unlucky users. - PSLS
There goes my weekend.
not mine, im online right now.
I've been playing for the last 3 hours with no problems at all
There was scheduled maintenance I think.
Apart from the Playstation store playing around and not loading properly, it's working fine for me. I was playing COD4 a few hours ago and it was normal. I live in England so maybe that's why. And even if it does go down, you can watch the Olympics.
I left, and am back and it's 9pm....I'm good.
Im playing right now as many of my friends so not sure wtf is going on for some :-/
Luckily for me it hasn't gone down. Sucks for those who can't get online though.
I hate my luck.
Same here..98% of the time I affected by the outages - must be because of my region.
Lol unlucky man. I feel your pain. Stuff like this happens to me too.
Weird I am signed in no problem.
you would love that.
People here can be so uptight, I was joking. You guys should game and have fun a little more and relax.
Dropped down from four bubbles to two, and your true colors are showing, eh? I was a little bothered by the downtime yesterday, as I intended to get a lot done on DCU yesterday. Instead, I played some Legend of Dragoon and The Show on my Vita. PSN is up just fine now, and wasn't even down that long yesterday. DCU was down for server maintenance longer than PSN was down for me.
Playstation... it only does everything...
Lmao I literally just came here after playing one of those half an hour matches of conquest on BF3. Before that Skyrim had crashed for me forcing me to reset my PS3 (meaning I turned it back on around the time this article was made) and I decided to jump online and shoot some people. Moral of the story is to not post misleading info about PSN being down unless Sony themselves acknowledge such an occurance
Because Sony always makes such announcements in a nice and timely manner, right? Anyway, it's not misleading if it is indeed happening to people. The fact that you haven't experienced it doesn't mean it's not a thing.
It's down for me man. The title says MANY... Learn to read. Many =/= all.
So because its not down for you a 5 people above that means its not down for many -_-
News to me. I've been on Home and the Dust 514 beta with no trouble. *shrug*
PSN was undergoing a maintenance, damm everytime PSN down the hate start up....
Let the hatred flow...
Maintenance was on Thursday, this isn't maintenance
This article was put up July 27, the article was about what happened on July 26 Thursday.
I went back to PC gaming during the major PSN outage last year, and my PS3s have been gathering dust ever since. With Steam sales, true 1080p, better frame rates, and mods, I don't miss it.
You know, that's great and everything but the way you say that seems like major trolling. I mean, it has nothing to do with the downtime at THIS moment, you just felt like telling everyone how you don't care to play your PS3 anymore. Period.
It is trolling. No one cares if he doesn't play his PS3 anymore. It helps these people sleep better at night if they keep repeating these things over and over again. He is trolling AND off topic. No one gives a $hit but they think everyone does.
Why are you even here speedo? Seriously, you offer nothing to this conversation, in fact your remarks lack any applicability whatsoever. Your remarks do not matter and neither do you. Have a nice life, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Maintenance was planned and as usual someone did not get the message and thus spun up an entire story over a forum posters ignorance.
I hate playing games on PC... ...see I can post irrelevant BS too :)
As an owner of two PS3s who was driven from the platform by PSN outages, my comment seemed completely relevant and on-topic. We are all entitled to our own opinions and choices, but your comment seems to suggest otherwise.
People who use PSN...
I use psn and I don't care so ur wrong
fanboys over reacting again....
Meh it gets knocked down and it goes up again. What else is new? XperiaRay
Maybe its the system type. I have a Fat 60 and it works online
There's a true saying, you get what you pay for!! Psn is free for a reason folks. It's funny how people love to bash xbox live which is far more superior and security tight, but when psn has countless maintenance and accounts being stolen , nobody complains, funny lol.
You definitely dont own a ps3
so why is steam free? and can you tell me what encryption algorithim microsoft uses?
You seem to forget that the Xbox has been hacked since day one, and while PSN did go down last year it is the Xbox that suffers from multiple cases of account theft and stolen credentials (I can hunt for sources if you have the gall to disagree). So saying the 360 is more secure is in fact entirely erroneous.
Lol so MS is just banning consoles for no reason? Live can be, and is, hacked all the time.... You get what you pay for, yet PC has a few rather good gaming networks too....Steam? Other things you pay for normally come with content, so they have to pay for the content. AKA Netflix, OnLive, etc....Live?
Can you provide links showing that xbl is hacked all the time? That's news to me if true.
everything can be hacked. steam, psn, and xbl have all been hacked...
I would like you to post these so called Xbox Live hacks, because you are a liar. You poor PS3 losers just can't take it that Live is miles better than PSN. You got one thing right though, you have no right to bitch when PSN goes down every month. So take your shitty free service, and I'll take the measly $5 a month service that is miles better.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/... Enjoy :). Just one of many, many, many, sources.
Both have been hacked. Nothing online is secure, no matter how much is spent on protection and security.
@Catoplepas That is not "hacking" in any way, but phishing. Surely you understand that sending people phony e-mails to which they willingly give out their account details is not considered hacking. That's just taking advantage of stupid people and that's all it ever is in these alleged "hacking" incidents involving Xbox LIVE.
The weird thing is I've been getting blazing fast downloads yesterday and today. Honestly I know its normally moderate to slow as hell, but I've been getting transfer speeds like a regular connection on a computer. 20mb trailer? Done almost instantly. A demo was done downloading in less than a few minutes....I was like "Wtf is going on!" Then I read this and people are getting the polar opposite haha I dunno if I broked it for myself, or the fact that people can't get on is doing it, but its awesome. Too bad it won't last.
Yeah, maybe the fact that less people are online speeds it up. Hopefully they just buy more servers.
The end is nigh
Maybe some of you guys can go outside and do something productive.
Like you yourself were doing at the time of your post? These people are awesome! They give advice but yet they themselves always fail to follow it.
I guess he was jogging while posting from his smartphone at the time.
Truth is people that pay for ps+ are the ones that should be angry as you have no right to gripe if you get it for free.
I think we can all agree that the PC has many good points and is hands down the best platform to game on. Paying for Xbox Live is only worth while if you play online all the time, can't live without party chat, and have all your friends playing with you. I for one don't like playing online all the time, can live without party chat, and my friends can kiss my a$$. Once you get burnt out on COD or Halo you have to consider why you pay for a service that should be free. I've spent over $300 on Xbox Live and over $400 on the marketplace. That's $700 could have been one mean PC machine. It doesn't help that I love RTS games Total War being my fav. PC>PS3>360
That's great, but what does that have to do with subject?
Im getting on with no problems, this site loves to report any psn outage. Like ppl on xbox live dont ever have a few customers who get errors or something give me a break.It was down for scheduled Maint, whats the issue? I find it amusing that this site blows up this issue of getting online. 1) its free 2) if I had to pay for it I would care but i dont pay so I dont care. 3) there are plenty of games offline to play Gran turismo 5, god of war 3 almost any game can be played offline.4)if you play online that much you need to get a job. 5) I find PSN very reliable besides the PSN outage of 2 months i think a year or so ago.6)I think PSN is a great value I have had a PS3 for 5 years and have never payed for my online like ppl who pay for xbox live.7)when PSN went down sony shut it down for 2 months no one had any money stolen or anything it was just a breach it is now incripted.Further more I would take 2 months down to make sure the network is secure then the crap microsoft has put on its customers with the red rings of death and scratchy cd games.My brother in law bought a xbox 360 and it broke 2 months after he got and was so pissed he never bought another system again cuzz he thinks there all like that.
So, let me get this straight, PSN goes down for some people and we get reasons why Xbox Live sucks? Ok then...
I was fine yesterday, but I just now started having problems....
Must be because of all those downloads from weeks ago right? Lol no I kid
