PSBeyond writes: The PSN is now officially down and out for the next 12 hours as Sony prepare a massive upgrade in the infrastructure of the system; it's unclear however what they're actually doing...
Every E3 Sony has Maintenence and every E3 People expect a FW update right after the show 12Hours this is there longest one yet and once again i am going to fall for it lol Sony please don't disapoint us in the next upcoming FWU
Maybe they will unveil their premium service and have it available instantly.
that would be amazing cause i am going to hate it if we have to wait till November for the service, idk i am Sure Sony been working on this for a long time now If the price is right and the service is right i will pay I hope they decide to give a free trial offer
NO they won't have it available in the next 12 hours... What ever they are updating will be kept under the hood until E3 and as soon as the show ends they will unlock it. Trust me nothing is changing on PS3 before E3 2010.
if they do that...do you think that a video showcasing all the new features that are now available should be shown once you power on your console?? i think that would be cool, im just going off of your idea of a premium service...
I really hope they don't disappoint, the past updates have been eh.
Ridiculous, you can't do a revolution each time you put a new firmware online. since the beginning, the regular (! not one or two, by years, like bad compagny) firmware updates have been just perfect for gamers desires, and even more (vidzone, upscale hi-quality, etc).
They may not do a FW update each E3, but they do add new functionality around each E3. Last year it was the movie service, IIRC. Before that was a FW update with new features. Before that was Home. And so on. @El Jugador: Each update contains code goodness that is used by specific games. Multiplayer elements for RDR, for example. Secure access login code for SOE MMO games is another example.
Probably getting it ready for something they will announce at E3. Or clearing out the old demos etc.. as those servers will build up a lot of crap over the years. We probably won't find out wither when they open again we will either have to wait till E3 or a Sony rep to tell us its nothing.
So true, and we fall for it every time and I'm about to fall for it again - I guess I just can't help my self.. Let's keep our fingers cross and hope that this time they don't disappoint... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Right off to play some uncharted 2 online .............................. .........WWWWAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHH HHHHHHH WTF no PSN I cant play Drake till tomorrow, what am I going to do * thinks thinks thinks* I don't know what to do aaaaaaAAAaaaAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHH HHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *sits in a corner red eyed and rocking*
I got 4 bubbles oh yeah oh yeah. How did that happen? lots of people have now got more bubbles weeeeeeee. Still can't play online, bummer.
They do something meaningful. They are constantly having. It's cool that it's free but it feels tacked on. I for one, would like a more integrated feel and better integration with the playstation website (like XBL and xbox.com).
Yeah, hopefully the FW isn't for bug fixes. New features please!
yes after all this news that ps3 us going under maintenece its official wow lame article anyways they getting ready for new updated from what it seems cant wait for E3 sony is going to blow our minds out
I just love firmware updates, more stuff to fiddle around with.
^^ well said
or maybe less which some people have felt, lol, anyway sony can not fail with this one. after releasing so many games, especially those top exclusive sellers, they need something epic for e3.
Or less stuff. Cough Other OS Cough. J/K This can only be a good thing. More servers = better online play.
Dang, no online gaming tonight..ah well, bring us the good stuff Sony!
Luckily, I've been playing Demon's Souls offline anyway to keep up my Pure Black World Tendencies for farming.
Same here. Been taking a break from the online. Working some Bioshock 2, GOW3, FFXIII, Heavy Rain, R&C:CIT... Any firmware makes me excited. Hoping for in-XMB Netflix, US Vidzone, and anything to doll up the Trophies, HOME, etc. I loved the dynamic themes. Such a great idea.
man i love my ps3 250GBslim and my PS3 80GB fatty !!
I literally just finished downloading Joe Danger. Thank God.
Although once you have paid and started to download it you no longer need to be signed into PSN
I hate you for having Joe Danger.
PSN sure doesn't look down to me. Maybe the story should be that it's officially almost down for maintenance?
Yeh when i go on it it says maitenence but my friend can still access it although not the psn store
Yeah if your already logged in your safe as houses so to speak you can continue to use online services as normal just the store is down it will say its not available in your region meaning its down. If you log out however you will not be able to log back in.
I can't sign in, but I can still use the internet browser. Thank goodness for that. :)
The Web Browser is very independent to the PSN.
such a long upgrade could be contributed to a couple things New servers (most likely because it took about 12 hours to move a few servers when i was doing that sort of thing) adding a new service to the current one (the paid service?) system maintenance (not as likely) or even the full list above, we will find out in 12 hours or at E3, Sony better be making good use of the time because a lot of people are going to be critiquing that they are doing
dedicated servers ftw.
I'm very excited to see what sony could potentially do with psn.
It's obviously not a new FW, im done with falling for that every time. ¬_¬ (whispers: fingers crossed it is the next update)
whats up with the number of comments per page? It use to be allot now its like not that many i hate flipping pages to find my comment cause the comment in profile always brings you to the first page
Ttt33eeeh Kroxssszz G4me CH4tTTsssssszz!!111!!!: CONFIRMED
Pfew, just got Joe Danger a few hours ago, that'll be fun tonight!
PSN is down. all right, im playing MGSPW right now.
During the maintenance, you will be unable to access the following services: * PlayStation Store * Account Management * Account Registration In addition, you will not be able to sign in to PlayStation Network from eu.playstation.com. If you wish to play online during the maintenance, please ensure you sign in to PSN before 16:00 BST on 9 June 2010. ----------------------------- ------------------------------- ------------- So you can still play online =)
At least your PS3 tells you that PSN is down for maintenance when you try to sign in, so we don't get all these retards asking waa waa waa WTF is PSN down like init PLS help!!??!??!111
Really? LMAO pointing out the obvious much?
I actually forgot all about the PSN Maintenance today, now I have to wait for tomorrow to download new stuff, damn everyone who accessed the Store beforehand.
This date was actually set awhile ago, it's for the 3D update for a few games.
OMG I was still logged in playing online 2 minutes ago when I decided reset my router and now cant log in, now wont be able to play for 12 hours =( Hope the wait is worth it
wanted t have a round of BFBC2 but i guess not =P oh well, not much gaming for me tnight anyway =) lucky me
If it's an FW I'm always up for new FW's..
and here it is... the e3 surprise begins...
We'll... This aint as bad as the internal clock bug we had a few weeks ago :D (remember? when no one could sign in because the PS3 thought it was Feb 29 2010, that date didnt exist, and because of that, you couldnt sign in?) hehe! I love my PS3! Xbox guys would be crying if this would ever happen to them 'NOOO MY LIFE IS RUINED! I WANTED TO BE AN XBOT AND BUY ALL STUFF THAT M$ PUTS UP!'
LOL! i remember. everybody was going crazzzzy! While i was laughing my ass off about how stupid it was. (No, i dont hate the ps3, its me favorite console)
i really do hope theyre getting it ready for the whole psn+ i wouldnt mind paying for it if its really worth it and hopefully the paying will make the psn better than what it is already :]
