Works for me.I'm on it as i type. Hopefully they get it sorted out asap

kreate2726d ago (Edited 2726d ago )

Me as well. I was just on psn an hour ago. I didn't know there was problems untll I came here.
I think if u don't come to n4g, u'll never know there are any problems to begin with.

Giul_Xainx2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

I have the issue but it is only for people who have have weaker connections. Basic IT stuff if you ask me. Like the XBOX 360 a few years back going down due to popularity... the PS4 is the hottest holiday item.

This only makes me smile as an investor in SNE. Especially with everything on the rise.

And seriously think about it for a minute. Sony's servers are stretched between PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. The PS4 is requiring more servers because more people are logging onto the PS4 vs every other platform. Some of my friends have new PS Vita's. And when people purchase digital copies over the weekend... this is what happens. I expect a server maintenance E-Mail within the next 48 hours to suddenly appear.

This site seems fascinated by any momentary slip of PSN. Don't get me wrong, it shouldn't happen, but did you see how many PS4s were opened on Christmas day?!

If, after 2 weeks, the problem persists, by all means make a fuss. For now, this is to be expected by any rational thinker. Also both competitors had trouble too, probably for the same reason - sudden load.

Please stop posting about it every few days:

For the record, I had trouble on Boxing Day, but been fine since. :)

SilentNegotiator2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

I think it's worth making a fuss about not being able to access PSN a LITTLE sooner than "2 weeks"...

G20WLY2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

^Great, well that's your opinion and you already know mine..

I'm not usually so understanding, but factoring the start of a new generation and knowing the number of units sold, I'm just not being a d!ck about it.

Is it good enough? No. Should they have foreseen the additional traffic and put measures in place to guard against issues? Well yes, but it's not as easy as it sounds. You can't just flick "a switch" lol

Giul_Xainx2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

I'm surprised someone knows what boxing day is. Not too many fanboys know what boxing day is before they type in a new google search for it. Their first thought for boxing day: "It's when you unboxed your 'x'."

Sad part is they don't realise that Boxing day isn't an american tradition.

SilentNegotiator2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

Wtf prompted that rant about Boxing Day and Americans?

Hopefully Sony gets this sorted and patched asap

Foolsjoker2726d ago

Woo. Good thing we don't pay for this service....o wait.

whoyouwit042726d ago

exactly, People are paying for this service now all these problems shouldn't be happening.

Deadpoolio2726d ago

I know right cause it's been a whole like 43 days since the PS4 came out....What the hell are they doing with the NO money they should have made from PSN in 43 days between existing users that have a year+ already paid for and the rest still using trial time cards.

Genius, your a real rocket scientist things to take time you know

Rockstar2726d ago

@ Deadpoolio...

This is the internet!

People here aren't happy unless they're complaining or flaming about something.

cluckey072726d ago

Xbox has been having issues also. It's not just sony.

BallsEye2725d ago

@cluckey07

Not a single XBL problem or downtime since launch of XO. Everything works blazing fast and downloads use all of my 100 mbps. Downloaded AC4 which is around 20 gigs in less than 20 minutes. BF4, KI, AC4 and Forza works flawlesly online aswell.

Giul_Xainx2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

@Foolsjoker and whoyouwit04: 2 months isn't enough for sony to go and say "We need X amount of servers for our online devices."

In fact, because the XBOX fanboys hate Sony so much they pilfered Sony's expectations. Over 2.9 million PS4's are out in the wild and there is a projection of another 1.5 million by the end of January. I see a lot of new PS4 owners popping up in February. So for Sony to make estimates now is all up in the air thanks to fanboys in general.

PS4 is the first console of Sony's to have a pay wall for multiplayer gaming. Remember when XBOX first came out? I'm pretty sure only the hardcore XBOX fans (not fanboys) remember their service having a rocky start. Need I pull up articles? When XBL came out all of those years ago with the original xbox they first had router issues: http://www.dslreports.com/f...
http://www.dslreports.com/f...

Need I say more? When you introduce a pay wall for the first time errors will happen.

For PS4 they have all but one base covered. The amount of servers available for everyone to enjoy PS3, PS4, and PS Vita online gaming. It all starts to make sense if you take the time to DO THE MATH.

Also if I receive any PM's over this be prepared for a bunch of links to be sent your way.

that's how I felt around xmas time. I wasn't happy at all. I couldn't play any games because their service was down. Not acceptable anymore now that we are being forced to pay for it.

thekhurg2726d ago (Edited 2726d ago )

Considering the first 30 days were free, assuming the service was down the ENTIRE time after your 30 day free period (also assuming you got your PS4 at launch) - I'm sure you can complain to Sony and they'll credit the $1.32 you're out, based of a full price 12 month subscription pro-rated for the 12 potential days of downtime post free month.

But considering there have been intermittent issues all of four days since launch, they'll likely only credit you $0.44 - and I'm sure they'll feel really sorry about your inconvenience.

Omegasyde2726d ago

@thekhurg

It's not the $ that is the issue. You buy a game 60$ but are stuck only having to play Single player? Same goes for XBL.

HOWEVER with PS+ you get free games for the next 12 months so it sorta evens out.

thehobbyist2725d ago

But you're not. You don't pay for PSN. You pay for PS Plus. It's not gonna stop you signing in if you don't have it. Unlike some other service I know.

BallsEye2725d ago

I see you're a typical fanboy not knowing anything about XBL. You can sign in and use many features of XBL without buying subscription. Subscription is only for early betas, online gaming and some streaming services. Nice try.

Mister_Dawg2725d ago

hehehehehehehehehe.

This is such a shame. ;-)

Wedge192726d ago

Not a big deal, I have enough single player games that even if this ends up affecting me, it won't actually affect me.

combatcash2726d ago

Not a big deal if you don't pay for the service, but if you pay for it then it's certainly a big deal.

liquidhalos2725d ago

I totally agree, anything that you pay for should work, its just what the consumer expects. We all knew that there were going to be problems with load over christmas, which means sony and ms must have expected it and done nothing.

But hell, im not going to let a brief outage (for me it was brief) detract from the excitment of a new gen.

Happy New year N4G, Hope this is a start to an awesome gaming year for all of us

Wedge192725d ago

I do pay for it, and it's still not a big deal. And one day of downtime equates to 14 cents, if I paid the full fifty, but most of my time I got it on discounts, so one day is technically worth even less.

I also understand that in the technological center of things, there's a lot more going on than I understand, and in general, I'm just a pretty patient and understanding guy, and don't let stupid shit like PSN maybe being down for a couple of hours for a couple of portions of the service affect me at all.

teflontactics2726d ago

Seems like I'm never included in the "getting an error" group, everything has worked fine for me for the last three "PSN is down" posts I've seen on this site. :)

dcj05242726d ago

Same here. All three downs i could play multiplayer. I just couldn't join parties/PS Store.

thekhurg2726d ago

LOL been the exact opposite for me. When I've had issues, the store has worked flawlessly, but other features have been fubar including some multiplayer - but not all for a strange reason.
