PlayStation Network Temporary Unscheduled Maintenance

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on Oct 16, 2008 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

UPDATE: The PSN is now back online. We’ll be updating the PlayStation Store shortly – keep your eyes on the PlayStation Blog for Grace’s Store Update post.

As some of you may have noticed, we’ve temporarily taken down some functions of PlayStation Network – specifically access to the PlayStation Store, account management and registration. Online gameplay will remain uninterrupted. We thank you for your patience and will report back here as soon as the Store and registration functions are back online.

    We\’ll keep you posted right here. The Store Update will likely follow as soon as things are back to normal.

    In the meantime, continue doing as you do – we just wanted to keep you posted!

Please! Please! Release HOME Open Beta! I am in the closed beta and my friends are dying to get in! They also don’t appreciate the fact that you waved the Far Cry 2 Game space in their faces when they won’t even be able to use it! Please release it!

And here I was waiting for a PSN Store update. :(

Maybe you’re down temporarily as you prepare the immediate release of Playstation Home, the premier online gaming community?? :) Maybe?

Thx for informing!

As long as I still got online play I’m straight. lol I’m sure the update won’t be as great as the past ones seeing how much has just came out recently.

So I can be patient. =)

Got the 2.50 update in the wee hours of the 14th. Glad it wasn’t that that did this. Been having issues with Comcast anyways since service was upgraded.

Hopefully the downtime isn’t too long, but I understand the need for fixes and beef ups.

Thanks for letting us know.

+ SpookyJuice on October 16th, 2008 at 1:56 pm said:

This probably has something too do with the Farcry 2 Home update, aswell as the Resistance 2 beta’s going out today. We shall see. Maybe they just want too upgrade the servers? well find out soon enough!

Yeah but the sad thing is I was just about to go on PSN with my PSP and download some demos, as well as download a few game trailers as well. Sadly thats no longer the case, and with the PC store currently under maintance and even the PS3 verion of the store being down alot of people are unhappy right now.

IMHO I think it was not a hack but due to the fact they launched the new PSN PSP service in the US, Japan, and EU all at the same time thus a crap load of new people flooded the store, and the online sceene for PSN. It’s good to see they took note that half the pages on the store were not loading up their pictures, and whats more half the content on the PC store was not even up for the PSP Version: IE the video part, as well as the many more game videos for the PSP, and PS3, and all the how toos were not placed up as well.

I hope this matenance also effects the PSP website for the PSP system as it’s in dire need of an overhaul just so it looks better, and runs smoother as of a few months ago it’s been so slow it’s not even funny.
