PlayStation Network Regular Scheduled Maintenance

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

Parts of PlayStation Network will be down this morning for regular scheduled maintenance. We’ll update you here on the PlayStation blog when everything is back up and running properly.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

I don’t mind these hold ups at all, they make everything better.

Glad I’m not at home and would have to wait for the update! Hopefully it’s for Home though. As long as it makes things more smoothly.

YAY! =D
Sure hope things get better,,, Should we expect any surprises in Home?!
Red bull space for example?! Or maybe something else…
Thanks anyways!

Thank you for using the blog to communicate this instead of burying it in the PSforums.

5/5

my friend, I am really sorry.

+ kspraydad on December 16th, 2008 at 5:49 am said:

Oh…I’ve often wondered…

Why not push a message out to all users using PSN about a day in advance? That way I’m on my PS3 and up pops an official communication about this. Wouldn’t that make sense?

+ hijaker77 on December 16th, 2008 at 5:51 am said:

Thanks for the update… its all good, at least you have updated us that some parts of PSN will be down. Cheers!

Maybe Firmware?


13

+ StalkingSilence on December 16th, 2008 at 5:52 am said:

Pretty good. Hopefully you guys will update the error screens in the future or just link to this blog posting from the PS3 when trying to logon.

Regular maintenance – no problem. I don’t need anymore features, please stop updating the PS3 and Home! haha I need to catch up on the games I already have!


14

+ hijaker77 on December 16th, 2008 at 5:53 am said:

@11

I think that is a great idea… a notification from Sony stating maintenance slightly in advance via PS3′s messages!

Never thought of that one but yeah it would be a nice add-on!

+ lifeRPGs on December 16th, 2008 at 5:59 am said:

Home related?
Firmware related?
On just regular maintenance?

+ lakaihigh on December 16th, 2008 at 6:08 am said:

Don’t look to much into this guys… you’ll only get let down :( but on the brighter side any kind of maintenance can only be a good thing. i like to view the glass as half full and not half empty ;)

Oh and great idea kspraydad!

peace,
Lh

+ jorellano on December 16th, 2008 at 6:25 am said:

I really hope it’s because you’re all taking the “Chain Swing” “song” out of HOME. That song is terrible. Absolutely horrible. lol

+ tretle on December 16th, 2008 at 6:28 am said:

@kspraydad – I have wondered the same thing before. pushing out irrelevant or needless news through the PSN messaging would be a bad thing I’m sure everyone would agree but getting messages about psn downtime wouldn’t really be considered spam.
Maybe in a future update you can get updates like this and maybe choose what you want to be notified about, like having a message to tell you the store has been updated with 2 demos 6 trailers and 7 forms of downloadable content.
Wouldn’t be the highest thing on the priority though, I think that game launching invites should be included in a future update so if you get an invite outside of home you can click on it and be brought directly to where the game is being launched in home. Of course that would mean getting rid of the Playstation home policy agreement to speed up the loading time but would be a great feature for the xmb.

I’m sure it’s just regular maintenance and that nothing will appear to have changed.


20

+ StalkingSilence on December 16th, 2008 at 6:39 am said:

@15,
Yes, I asked for some further explanation and received word that it’s just regular maintenance and not related to any massive PSN overhauls or new firmware. CydoniaX’s post on the PS forums leads me to believe this is possibly related to the back-end stability of Home, but whatever it is – the front-end will stay the same for us, and nothing will appear to have changed.

+ p-s-3 on December 16th, 2008 at 6:47 am said:

Hope it fixes the Europe HOME log in? Keep getting Error messages, takes ages to get on it :(
+The Europe HOME is the worse out of all of them for New content to. Open beta was the same as the Closed beta?
Keep up the good work anyway SONY :)

+ r-nice on December 16th, 2008 at 7:02 am said:

Has there been any talk of adding a “Most Played on PSN” list of some sort that we can look at? I think it would be an interesting list.


23

+ psFAN4LIFE on December 16th, 2008 at 7:07 am said:

@ 11 Hey i have said that myself :) They should send out a message here of course and to PS3 owners. Alot of people don’t even come here like my friend, he hates forums & blogs “crazy huh”.

For not being able to attach an image in a message I keep getting an error:

The message could not be sent.

Anyone else getting the same problem? I keep getting this error for any image I try to attach!

FIX the battery icon overlapping the time! Thanks.

+ StalkingSilence on December 16th, 2008 at 9:40 am said:

@22,
That would be cool as we know Major Nelson tracks and reports that for [the other console]. However, I’m not sure Sony logs all of this data – since they don’t provide servers for all games and don’t manage it as tightly as Micrsoft, I don’t think.

hi to all,

does anybody RESPONSABLE FROM SCEA OR SONY in this blog know something about socom us navy seals confrontation patch 1.30 released date.?

by the way it sucks that when i am watching video and now hit the ps button it pauses,,,, bring it back to the way it was, and let us make video playlist’s

+ estrafo on December 16th, 2008 at 9:58 am said:

and if we can get a personalised avatar here on the forum, why cant we have it for the PS3?


41

+ TouchyEd on December 16th, 2008 at 10:05 am said:

Please don’t ask Sony to move the battery icon down a few pixels so that we can quickly check the time while playing games…

A simple, intelligent solution like that would make too many people happy — which goes against everything Sony believes in.

+ vandam on December 16th, 2008 at 10:12 am said:

Ha LOL I’m glad you are updating the PSN but come on I took today off from work to play online the only day this month I take off they shut it down (that’s my luck) Any way C U online LATER :D

+ kassasah on December 16th, 2008 at 10:19 am said:

i don’t really mind this updating, because they are making the ps3 better in a way, we should be patient and see what happens…
give them some recognition

thats good 2 hear but i think i speak for all us LBPer’s WE NEED a SPACE NOW! with game launching this would make home IMO 5 times better than it is. most of the time i just run around saying LBP LBP anyone sometimes i meet new people but if LBP had its own spot just think of the creativity that would flow from that spot. SO PLEASE next games space MUST me for LBP!!!! :)

Good job, Sony, on keeping up with maintaining a rapidly growing network that continues to offer more exciting services and features. I look forward to what the future of PSN holds in store. I love my PS3!! :-)

If I may, Where in H-E-double hockey sticks, is jeff?!? He’s been having way too much fun @ the VGA’s and hasn’t kept us up to date on much…like whatever happened to the whole PS Blog/PSN avatar intergration? I thought something new was coming? Also, what about some info on firmware updates? Has Sony put such a HiGH Priority on Home, that they’ve pretty much forgotten about improving their hardware with features that WE (the psn community) have been asking for?..Just a couple thoughts running through my head. Thanks in advance to anyone from Sony willing to answer.

If its scheduled maintenance why don’t we know about it :/

Didn’t bother me but you should post a schedule of these things, while you’re at it put a schedule for releases on it.

At least it was on a Tuesday and not during the weekend like some Live “updates” that still don’t help bad service.
