See you online!

*runs to his Ps3 in slo-mo*


Good news:
All of US will be up in the next few hours.

Bad news:
Try not to get jealous of states that have their PSN up and running before you ^_^

longcat3024d ago

Psn was down during my exam preparations. had less distractions

Exams were yesterday...get up today and see this...awesome

aCasualGamer3024d ago

Welcome back!

This re-entering of the PSN will result in major city power outages. The electricity will go down in the world as PS3 gamers get back online!

Hail PSN!!!!!

ProjectVulcan3024d ago

Rhode Island will come on first :-) lol

Here's the video from sony.

MrBeatdown3024d ago

After clicking "Sign In" I'm now getting a prompt to change my password. When I click OK, I get an "undergoing maintenance" message. But it would have to sign me in order to tell me I need to change my password, so Sony has turned at least some part of the system on.

Istanbull3024d ago

You guys, I just wasted 350 bucks to play the same game back online on Live.


FarEastOrient3024d ago

Florida just skip everyone

AngryTypingGuy3024d ago

It kind of feels like I'm watching a Presidential Election, waiting for my state to turn a certain color.

X-DominusRebellis-X3024d ago

K, I'm on the westcoast and all I could do was d/l and install the update. The stupid little maintenance thing keeps popping up! I'll keep those on the westcoast updated...until I get online! hehehehehehehhe HAPPY!!!

Hope Canada is included as well.

LordMaim3024d ago

It's on the map, but it doesn't look like we're a priority. :P

SoSLy3024d ago

Oh, it's country that's not obese ;)

Octo13024d ago

Im in PEI and I am installing the OFW as I am writing this.

InFAMOUS13024d ago

Patrick Seybold said it is included in and it will light up like the U.S, there are just no names on the map for Canada but it is going live... WOOT

LordMaim3024d ago

I don't see that in the blog anywhere. Do you have a link?

guitarded773024d ago

I don't believe you eh.

Who3024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )


Yes I'd like to see a link for peace of mind. But if so, shouldn't the east coast of Canada light up by now?

I wouldn't be surprised if we'd have to wait till after all the states were back up.

[Ugh, times like this I wish I had more bubbles... hint hint lol]

@ darkride66:

lol! Even if canada's was being updated along the way, I don't see any provinces on the east lighting up [ie. Nova Scotia, PEI, New Brunswick].

Anon19743024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )

American's made the map and they just didn't know what the names of the provinces were. "I think that one is called Toronto but I'm not sure. Just leave it blank."

X-DominusRebellis-X3024d ago

Oui Oui Je suis Canadien aussi. Now hurry up so I can quit studying for midterm on Tuesday and play some online instead!!!

thematrix12983024d ago

How can you forget us? We kicked your arse in Vancouver 2010 Hockey finals :D

HolyOrangeCows3024d ago (Edited 3023d ago )

"It's on the map, but it doesn't look like we're a priority"

Yeah, you'd think Canada would be top priority on

Why you no list Canada?"

And they say Americans aren't bright.
[Bob_and_Doug_McKenzie.jpg] "Buncha, hosers, eh?"

Perhaps the regular PSN site would have that info?
Or heck, maybe they don't have Canada listed anywhere specific. Your assumption that the US blog site should automatically have the Canadian data since there isn't a specifically Canadian site is silly.

edit: oh look! Canada is lit up with the rest of the states of the United States. So quit complaining about the US site not giving you love by listing the provinces' names.

cool cole3023d ago

Well that would make sense, too bad theres no Canadian Playstation blog, so if you could, would you be able to tell me where I could find information about PSN for Canada? That's what I fucking thought.

ATiElite3023d ago (Edited 3023d ago )

I'm sure the major urban areas of the U.S. will be up first then the heartlands and America's northern suburb, Canada will be last.

and if your from Canada I'm just joking...your probably watching Hockey Playoffs anyway to even care.

Go Canucks!....(blatant attempt to get on Canadians go side)

Organization XII3023d ago

Canada Sucks! oh im just messing with you guys, lets have a big hug everyone =)

WildArmed3024d ago

Aye, indeed.
I love that bloody game.

GarandShooter3024d ago

Aaah, yes, I so fondly remember the time I spent Down East at Acadia and Bar Harbor. Good times...

I am disappointed that I didn't take the CAT to Nova Scotia while I was there.

duplissi3024d ago

nice place acadia is... dont worry i live here and i havent been on the cat

trancefreak3024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )

Better turn on Cali if thats where the main servers are.

I need to make sure its ok for the rest of the states first.

I updated cant change password or log in betcha the west will be last :(
