Kazuo Hirai announces the relaunch of PlayStation Network.
Finally i can get back on killzone 3 online
Yeah, hopefully sooner than later. He announced it is online.. but still can't log in :(
give it about half an hour EDIT: Just been updating my system and it stopped at 43%, then an error appeared telling me to cancel the operation and reboot the system and try again. It also said if it appears again then note the error code: 80710723. Is anyone getting the same problem?
Does this vid work for u guys on the PS3s browser?
THANK YOU !!! PRAISE JEEBUS !!! Lets gi have some fun!
YEAH! Soon will be back online my friends, see you there... :P
I'm not home right now. I go home till tomorrow afternoon. Relaunch it tomorrow and I will take back everything I said! One thing this has taught me...just because PSN is free...you shouldn't take it for granted. I missed PSN so much!!!! Will-UK, same here! Killzone 3!!! :)
This was very professional and respectful from Sony's side. I hope with this newer security measures they've taken that this will never happen again, if it does then it probably won't be in the same magnitude of the recent attack. Just wish these hackers could show their faces and stand up for their actions, you know, since they are fighting for our freedom and fighting against the control and monopoly of major corporations. ..oh wait.
that was classy sony
Finally! Good to be back!
"....and now, Trenton with sports"
Yeah ditto. Good to see the universe in balance again. Now hopefully N4g will return to normal within the week. EDIT Lol phantoms are striking already. Looks like fanboys are mad that PSN is almost up.
N4G? Normal? BAHAHAHAHA! Anyways its great to be back home. Thx Sony :)
I am glad that PSN is up for all of you. I hope that none of us ever have to deal with something like that again.
i Downloaded the update but cant sign in?
Be patient, it's being turned on bit by bit. Can you imagine the server stress if they turned the whole world on at the same time.
I think that overall Sony handled this well.
Maybe we should wait to see what free games we're getting first before we make that judgement.
@Logic Your opinion is based on the games Sony gives us? Makes no sense.
just hope that with this failure of PSN hack, Sony has learned to invest a little more in security '-'
i'm hoping authorites all over the world will take notice of how serious (and criminal) a problem hacking can be........and that they'll do everything possible to hunt these losers down and give them a few years of jail-time.
if the reports are true how do you think the people who traded in their systems just to get a quick online fix feel now with this news announcement? i guess my patience was justified as i didnt panic or get all upset about it being down. i guess the gaming media and industry needs Sony because look at all the alternate articles on just the firmware update being released lol.
Lol my cousin did this yesterday traded it for a 360 now i cant stop laughing
I feel like having a party now, lol. Downloading the patch now. Damn, the servers are being hammered. :( I got an error.
At least they acknowledged that shit went down and that they were busy trying to clean it up. Other companies will not even admit that there was a problem. Example, Microsoft and the case of RRoD. Thank you Sony, now all that's left is to get back online!
Time to get back to my online
About Em EFFing time. Gonna be busy tonight though.....and tomorrow. So gonna get back on on Monday.
In less than an hour, we will join others from around the world. And we will be launching the largest online resurrection in this history of mankind. Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps its fate that today is the 15th of May, and we will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to game online, to exist. And should we win the day, the 15th of May will no longer be known as an just a day, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to game on! We're going to survive!" Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!
that's a little ridiculous.. .but I'M WITH YOU!
They may take our lives, but they will never take . . . OUR NETWORK !!!! Hahahaha. Good news.
Bubbles for the emotions
haha nice lines from the movie "Independence Day" CLASSIC!
Absolutely loved that speech in Independance Day!! Bubs for u mate.
Arms to chest: Doctor: "LIVE GODDAMN IT! LIVE!" "Keep the compressions going!" Doctor: "Get me a crash! NAO!" Doctor: "No no no! Get me the one with Sully's mustache drawn on it...yes the lucky kind!" Nurse: "But sir that one doesn't work!" Doctor: "OF COURSE IT WORKS! Does it look like pixel junk to you??" Nurse: "We're losing him!" Doctor: "Charge to 350!" Nurse: "Pulse is at 0!" Defibrillators. "LIVE DAMNIT LIVE!" "Still no pulse!" "Charge to "360" sir?" "Ok...Do it!....WAIT, NO! Charge to 361!" Defibrillators. "Still no pulse sir!" Doctor: "Stop screaming and close that door!" Nurse: "Em.....One of the gears is broken!" Doctor: "WHAT? You still use the plastic kind? Those are unstable! Go down to Empire city and Cole will give you a Metal Gear that is Solid! None of that cheap plastic crap!" "We're losing him!" "Give him 30CCs of Helghast adrenaline, NAO!" "We've got a Pulse!" Doctor: "For the love of Zeus! PSN, DON'T TRY TO SWALLOW THE CINTAMANI STONE AGAIN."
LMAO! This was funny! "Charge to "360" sir?" "Ok...Do it!....WAIT, NO! Charge to 361!" <--- DEAD*
Ha Ha ! Well said ! Time for some BF:BC2 tonight ! :D
My people... Sons and daughters of SONY... This much I vow. The history of these days will be written in blood. By crushing the armies of Microsoft, by seizing the Network they thought to turn against us, we were fighting for our very exclusives. But if there are those who would deny us peace, refuse us our rightful place in the Gaming Industry, then...we will unleash such TERRIBLE VENGEANCE, THAT GENERATIONS OF SYSTEMS YET UNBORN, WILL CRY OUT IN ANGUISH!!
Scolar Visari!...Hahah, that speech and its epicness just never fails to scare the hell out of me. You forgot the end quote: "Helgan..belongs to us!"
Shhhhhh Mr Hirai, tell everyone after I've updated
The music just sells it, completely.
DAMN IT I was going to upload this.
upload a face first
There's a bit in the middle where he sounded like he was pleading with other companies not to make the same mistakes Sony did. Warnings should be heeded.
Yea, I got that sense as well. It's sucks someone had to be a guinea pig for this. :-/ But i'm glad it's back on! woooo
All the companies need to work together on this, it effects the whole industry.
This is bitter/sweet psn coming back but still no Saga Frontier on psn but its on japanese psn it needs to come to U.s. Psn and other psns regionally.
Domo arigato Kazuo San
You forgot Mr. Roboto
You only release how special it is when its missing, so glad they got it back and runninf
Can't wait love you Sony
HAHAHAHA I LOVE HIM!
That was cool but all I want now is details on whats in the welcome back package
Did anybody see the secrect code at the end, when the SCE logo faded away?
Finally, im positive the return will be worth the while. Sony your the bomb diggity. S4L.
this is why the Japanese FUCKING ROCK. couldnt see fat fuck steve balmer doing a video like this
He paused and smiled when he said "Playstation home" as if to say "We'd be better just permanently shutting that down" lol
Then you obviously need to learn how to read people better. The way he was talking, he made it sound as though that's what people were most waiting for. But of course, a person who doesn't use Home wants it to shut down, right?
I'm just pointing out it's uselessness. Obviously, there's no way he'd be thinking that because of all the money it makes them. Fools buying fake items of clothing and furniture etc.
Yeah, because millions using it makes it useless right? People don't interact there, don't play games there, it's so useless and has absolutely no value whatsoever. /s
Still down ?
