PlayStation.Blog Maintenance Today

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jun 23, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

UPDATE: aaaaaaaaand we’re back. I really expected that to take longer. We’ve now increased our server capacity, which will allow us to continue to grow and implement new features to the blog. We’ll let you know what they are when we roll them out.

In case you missed it last week, Capcom’s John D. broke the Blog. Steaming pile of wreckage, it was.

So today, we’re adding another server. Truthfully, we had planned to do that anyway. I think Mr. Diamonon wants to take credit – and since they’re adding Trophies to Bionic Commando: Rearmed, I’ll let him do so.

Either way, if you try to log on to the Blog from about 2-3pm (Pacific) today and it doesn’t work, it doesn’t mean your internet is broken. Necessarily.

Note: the PSN is unaffected by this maintenance window.

Good idea! Thanks for the heads up. Any word on when we should expect that BC:R patch? Even an estimate would be nice. Thanks Jeff. :-)

Jeff, could this mean Firmware update 2.80 will integrate with the PlayStation Blog :P

No kidding, is it true about Firmware update 2.80?

LOL…you know John; he lives to break the Blog. You guys are going to need servers worthy of the Batcave to stop him from doing it again.

Thanks for the warning, even though it only took mere minutes to pull off. Now you have enough server space to handle 4000 comments!

In random tandem Jeff, you really should remember to give us a heads up on when those BC:R trophies are going up. I’d love to earn me some.

Firmware updates have nothing to do with the blog update. Unless Jeff and the gang pull a fast one on us.

Why should Jeff waste his time answering a question that Eric is going to address in a later post? Time management, kids; google it.

+ joseph2411 on June 23rd, 2009 at 3:04 pm said:

Why do i have the feeling that this PS Blog maintenance is all because John D.? Well we may expect him to break his own record of posts here at the blog now that it has more server capacity.

“We’ve now increased our server capacity, which will allow us to continue to grow and implement new features to the blog.”

More community features on the PS Blog? You know like let us access our PSN friends and see what they’ve been posting around the blog (:
