Routine PSN maintenance Thurs, 11/7 from 8am-3pm Pacific Time: bit.ly/HEOiGz Log in beforehand to retain online play & app access
Big question will the notorious "Down For Maintenance" be long gone on the PS4? Someone Tweet Shuhei Yoshida.
After a year I would imagine it will happen a lot less often, with lots more people now actually paying to use PlayStation Network.
FFS always during the main hours over here in the UK >:( Why not inconvenience every part of the world with peak hours downtime (rotate the times) rather than always the EU >:(
Remember you can log in before maintenance starts in order to stay online.
I will :) but its not the point, they ALWAYS do it during EU peak hours >:(
God damn it, just happens to be the only hours i'm available to play that day.
@stunz If you the Power of the Cloud is not going to have these same down times you're fooling yourself.
Well Xbox live hasn't had the downtime like this this generation so why would that suddenly change? What we can hope for is now that PSN is a paid for service that the down times will decrease significantly
Cloud, at least Azure, has redundancies that can move the workload to different servers should they go down or need maintenance. In this case I would assume maintenance wouldn't be all at the same time. @jack Xbox Live has had downtime, however it is usually brief. I can't say for sure, but I wouldn't doubt that Live already runs off Azure, as the rest of MS Live products do. I think they are expanding what all live does for next gen though to be more than just a matchmaking server, and it will start actually hosting games and doing other things. MS are pretty good at software, they've had software upgrading solutions for a while that keep downtime to a minimum.
Please refer to front page as far as Microsoft Azure network for those who disagreed to my comment! Actually I'd settle for Sony maintenance then risk being booted mid match on the Xbox1 quite frequently as they put it. Why people won't come to terms to the fact that Microsoft has mis-managed the development of the Xbox1 is beyond me! How anyone can anyone defend it, or Microsoft is ludicrous.
LAWL. Sweet time for maintenance since my work is 8-4:30. Hope it's always like that XD
Ugh, read this headline and new trolls were gonna jump on it. Looks like stuntz already put in a jab, wow.. I'm fine with PSN always have been, doesn't bother me and I'm the one using it, don't know why you guys pretend it affects you in any way when you aren't even on it.
I mentioned this in the article about how PSN will better on PS4 and people claimed it was a non issue and proceeded to disagree with me. I suppose it's a case of "nobody bullies my kid brother other than me!" syndrome where perceived outsiders are not allowed to bad mouth Sony even though the "insiders" themselves do find it as an annoyance.
People disagree with you because you troll every chance you get. If you become known as a troll, any valid comment you make gets auto-disagreed.
I get that, but they also said it was a non issue and that they didn't mind it...
X1 > PS4
Edit: Actually, no. PS4 is technically better than Xbox One.
"Routine" I am SO excited to see how the PSN fairs on the PS4. :)
