All platforms should be able to connect to psn by now. It's still not fully restored but you can play and enjoy your online games that we all missed during Christmas.
Nice. Well this must have been a nightmare, not just for gamers but also network engineers working over Christmas. It's crazy how much mainstream news coverage this got. Lizard squad must feel like ballers. Antisocial, secluded, virgin ballers.
"Lizard squad must feel like ballers. Antisocial, secluded, virgin ballers." He laughed far too hard at this.
I meant "I". Honestly no idea (can probably blame the alcohol).
Still down for me. PS4 Works on Vita. Never was down on PS3. But PS4 was and still is Down.
UPDATE: PSN works for me when I Decreased the MTU to 1473. You do that by going to network settings, custom network.
hope you will meet one of those stinky lizards and punch them in the face very hard...
Unfortunately, they definitely got what they wanted. Good thing the PSN is back up and working for me. Time to get back to my stories.
If I paid for this service (Which I don't lol) I would be measurably upset with Sony for firstly still being taken down by simple DDOS attacks and secondly for not setting up more secure infrastructure by now. This applies to MS aswell. It is sad that both multi billion dollar companies gets taken down annually by these different groups of loosers. Time and time again. Being a primarily PC gamer I don't suffer from this issue, but I feel as you guys are paying for this you deserve better and more protection. On a side note it has take Sony significantly longer to get their show up and running than MS did. I believe it was just over 1 day for MS, correct me if I'm wrong. Why does Sony take so much longer? Down 3.5 times longer right now for the same attack, with no access to single player games. I thought pre-release Sony touted games on PS4 being always available OFFLINE after the MS #dealwithit crap. p.s. not pro MS, don't own either consoles. it is what it is.
Music to my ears!
I got a crazy idea:- Why dont m$ or Sony start a kickstarter campagn to raise 1 million pounds to give to the person that names and provides locations for all the lizard squad members, that is verifyable obviously, and leads to prosecution. I wonder how much loyalty would be lost when money became an issue. Wonder how long it would take to hit that target. I'm not saying thats the answer, as they are a large collective, but im pretty sure theres a place for everyone were loyalty disappears over greed
I'll only donate if they receive the firing squad...
Mine was back up last night. Glad to see its up and running for everyone now.
its sunday afternoon and my friend who i damn near talked into getting a ps4 s few weeks ago still hasnt been able to connect since thursday.
still isn't working for me. guess i'm just that lucky huh. Oh and the live chat chose a perfect time to not be available as well, just perfect timing all around sony.Yay!
About time! Damn these Lizard Squad!
We need an a few Eagles to hunt them down.
By eagles, you meant FREEDOM?
Finally! Now maybe I can get my new ps tv up and running
Yay! Now I can play some Freedom War's multiplayer!
I really want to get this game! His awesome is it?
I absolutely love it. It is a hunting game akin to MH, but the grappling hook adds alot of depth to it. and the gunplay works very well. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me about it.
Hopefully this will stay this way for the future.
That's good news. Now kids all around the world will be able to enjoy their new systems.
I got on a little while ago on PS4. Works perfectly for me now. I don't even have trouble accessing friends or the PS Store or anything like that.
I still can't access account settings though. It says 'The site is currently under maintenance'. But yeah everything else seems to work.
I still can't connect?! WTF?! It says " The connection to the server has been lost." Anyone else have this issue?
I can't connect yet on PS4 in Canada.
Yeah I can't connect either right now I'll try again later in the morning. They did just announce this, it'll probably start working by the time noon approaches
Same here, im on California btw. Must be something affecting the west coast, maybe its going up by region or time zones Edit: Lovin the disagrees
I'm in western Canada, so west coast could be a possibility.
I was having that happen all day, even when PS3 and Vita worked perfectly. I saw something online to change MTU to 1473 when setting up an internet connection. I did that and it worked, although I really can't tell you if it was helpful or purely coincidental.
Hell Yeah!! That works!!! Thanks a lot man!!!
Finally! Great news. Those Lizards need to be grilled.
Lizard Squad is a gay name.
Lizard Squad isn't a gay name. However, The Gay Lizard Squad is. ;P
they like vibrating controllers in their pants.
Odd enough, my ps3 is fine, but my ps4 will not log in.
This event showed the difference between both sides of the new gen console dichotomy. The Xbox went down and took a day, maybe even half a day to come back on, the games worked fine in the mean time and you could still go on the apps (even if it said "connection lost") and my ps4 just went in to cardiac arrest. The network was absolutely brought to it's knees, what made MS's downtime 3 times shorter than Sony's and why didn't my PS4 games work when it was down, even the single player one's? No "always online" feature my ass, if the connection went down, the games didn't even load. :( Disappointed by the so called people that did this but I'm equally disappointed in Sony for such a slow effort and for basically lying to us at the e3 unveiling.
Slow effort, really? Did you get a few days off for the holidays?
Oh shut up you one bubble troll! Now that both networks went down and you can no longer claim invincibility for Xbox Live, you are clinging to duration of the downtime. Who cares if it took PSN a little longer? There could be any number of reasons. I was playing FFXIV before the network outage but I started playing Dragon Age Inquisition when the network went down. Today I will resume playing FFXIV. It wasnt like the console stopped working; you are grasping at straws.
@star lord um mm... Yea I think you should do a little more research before you go away and leave about things you obviously know nothing about I give you a second to figure out where you're so wrong
Well done, Microsoft. You cleaned yourself up faster after neckbeards had their way with you until Kim Dotcom paid them to stop. What a remarkable service Microsoft is running. Top notch!
Just stop. Really.
The amount of disagrees you got for stating actual facts & the silly childish comments that followed shows just how sad & lonely the majority of N4G is. Yet they moan about how sad & lonely the lizard squad is. The hypocrisy is hysterical.
It has to be actual facts first, which it wasn't.
Been up for a while now
I'm good, I got to get a couple of games of Madden in so my Saturday wasn't a total waste
@SlapHappyJesus Lol! I laughed far too hard watching you trying to correct yourself. Haha!
The struggle is real.
Still can't verify email on ps 4.
this is a lie i can't get online here in nc east. i just got me a ps4 with callofduty and I've never even seen online yet I'm taken all this crap back that i got for xmas and getting xbox one
hate to break it to you champ xlive isnt a hundred percent either
Yeah I know but Aleaset xbl doesn't get hacked twice a year I'm sick of this
It wasn't a hack because no information was stolen. it was a DDOS attack. Oh, and XBL was attacked too genius. That service isn't invincible either.
Well It's still down for me in the UK
my ps3 never really suffered this time around but i haven't been able to do anything online on my ps4 for days now. you'd think sony and ms would have some sort of back up plan for stuff like this by now... we have to pay for both services and it's useless now.
It's working for me. I got to play dragon age today. I hope it stays connected.
still not working for me (stockholm sweden) anyone else from here that's having problems? cheers!
London UK not working for me
I'm with you on that mate. Seen my mates online but I still can't connect
I live in Spain and it doesn't even work now. Maybe all of Europe is down.
No some parts are up and some are not. Depending on where your local data centre is based. I have mate in England who are already online
i been trying to log into ps4 psn still cant
Well this weird xbox is working bar a few apps but the headlines on n4g have you believe all is dandy on PSN but xbox live is down wow, this is awesome.
i can go on the store now, and play everything except destiny and call of duty, but i got some FF 14 ARR in, and some Dragon age, so im good.
Still can't sign in on ps4 I'm in UK and done the mtu thing
still cant log in to psn on my PS4 due to server time out. in Iowa here.
Not for me yet. It'll find the IP address and connect to the net, but it tells me to sign in to PSN. When I do try to sign in, I get the same stupid "connection to the network was lost" or "couldn't connect within the time limit." I've reset my router, turned my PS4 off, waited 30 seconds, and turned it back on, etc. I still can't get on. :(
