hell yeah!

I was listening to Guile´s theme as i was typing this! LOL xD I swear


Indeed, lol you dont understand how awesome it was!


-_- please read the article...

lol looks like someone is stealth disagreeing hahahaha

limewax3018d ago

Indeed it sounds like its getting closer, However reading the article makes it sound like the update will come BEFORE the network is back online, I hope it isn't too long before, Just don't expect the update to get you back online by the way it is worded

DragonKnight3018d ago

Someone needs to make a Guile's Theme goes with everything video for when PSN comes back online.

Innervision3018d ago

Guile's theme truly does go with everything...

linko18-19903018d ago

Guile's theme goes with everything LOL

pixelsword3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Guile's Theme will be playing in the background on my honeymoon.

Headquarters113018d ago

So we cant change our password yet? correct?

DERKADER3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )


I just updated and no it will not let you change your password until PSN is back up.

PS fans never went anywhere. They were still using their PS3's daily playing games and utilizing all of it's other features. Only they were being overshadowed by the competitors fanboys, trolls who were fueled be nonsensical articles from garbage sites. Those are the people that will now go into hiding, hopefully. Case in point, you. AKA - troll.

I mean seriously, don't you have games to play? Oh wait, er um, never mind.

HolyOrangeCows3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

"I was listening to Guile´s theme as i was typing this! LOL xD I swear "
Who cares WHEN you were watching it? Guile's theme goes with EVERYTHING.

Hallelujah! About freaking time!

"hahahah..all the ps3 fanboys coming out now. They were hiding under the rocks"
Don't be silly, I was here the whole time.

JoySticksFTW3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

I downloaded and changed my password (can sign into PSN too now), but I did not see a way to change my security question.

Any know how to change it? Or did Sony do away with this now maybe?

MasFlowKiller3018d ago

Got Some Killzone 3 one, the good times are back on

jdrman20073018d ago

After reading the first few comments, I decided to watch a few Guile's themes goes with everything videos and an hour later through a series of unfortunate events I was watching some video called MW2 girl has orgasm o_O
I dont even remember how the hell I got there lol! Damn... I really need PSN back soon lolololol

Haters gonna hate, it won't be long now! Don't be jealous ;)

Below: Hence the 'won't be long now' baby.

soundslike3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )



nah, y'all just get your hopes up so quickly, could be up tonight....but I wouldn't put money on it.

NeoBasch3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

It's up, but it's going ridiculously slow. Just hit 1% having started five minutes ago. : \ Good thing I started early. Does anybody know it this update puts PSN back online or just allows us to change our passwords?

EDIT: @Lord Maim, thanks for the update. Cheers!

LordMaim3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Not online yet, just the firmware in preparation. But this is a sign that they're getting close, hopefully. I doubt they'd put it online while "77 million" people download new firmware. Imagine how much lag you'd have?

-Alpha3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Damn, I downloaded in like 2 minutes, installing right now. Isn't there another main update?


Why don't people read the steps?

There are the official articles saying the Firmware will be the 1st step, then Sign-in for PlayStation Network and Qriocity services, including the resetting of passwords.

Restoration of online gameplay across PlayStation 3 and PSP will be next.

Step by step, and Online access it is for few hours more =D.

hotrider123018d ago

DtotheRoc3018d ago

brothers..resistance forces from brink quote?

pain777pas3018d ago

Who else saw the Kaz video and was happy to see the original Sony entertainment logo? Man, that brought back memories. Been playing some RR4 lately. The game holds up suprisingly well. RR2 PSP is in that games league. RR7 gameplay is the overall best and most customizable. NGP please get the original send off version since the game is going unbounded?

Woo Hoo. Keep moving forward Sony.

Joni-Ice3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Well I really did. Thats why Im late to the party. WOW the minute I want to get down with the wifey the PSN gets activated. If I knew that was goin to happened, I would have done it three weeks ago.

oghost853018d ago

PSN IS Back downloading patch now!!!

oghost853018d ago

Boo nothing happend! still under maintenance lame..

-Alpha3018d ago

At least it's something! It can't be much longer now.

mantacore65623018d ago

i know i about exploded with exitement and then i went to sign in with a maintencance message and i was like "Ah fluck thats dumb"

Muerte24943018d ago

Finally!!! Dowloading right now. We should be going LIVE tonight then!!!!

xAlmostPro3018d ago

Not quite, this clearly states it's in preperation for PSN going back online.

They'll most likely leave it until sometime tomorrow to make sure the majority of people have the update :)

QuodEratDemonstrandm3018d ago

If anyone tries to sign on, they will be instructed to download 3.61. that should cover the vast majority of PS3 users right there. I was prompted to sign in while browsing Netflix, and got the instructions to update.

Muerte24943018d ago

Well I apologize for being optimistic. I guess it seems only pessimism is allowed now that they're is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. It was four days up until now that we've heard absolutely nothing, and when we do it's this. My question would be, why release the update is the service wasn't ready to go LIVE again? Also check the stages. Sony said that upon the release of the firmware would online play be returning also.

xAlmostPro3018d ago

I'm not hating your optimism im happy, it mean we're a step closer but it's better to be realist than hype and be disapointed dude :)

So many people thing PSN is back online, when it's just an update as it is :) <3

ZombieAssassin3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Yay, now lets hope we can go online today.

QuodEratDemonstrandm3018d ago

I am reminded of the words of Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca.

"Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon....and for the rest of your life."
