Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to┬áthis space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can.

I hope it’s not related to those hackers. This has got to stop!

WHAT???? MORTAL KOMBAT just came out and now i cant play online. I cant play 80% of my games that have online functions.

Seriously SNEA, you guys need to be more forthcoming about what is going on, and the steps you are taking to correct the issues.

Not telling us what is going on and why these things are happening is not a good look.

@4

Well, keep plugging away. How about some RPG posts to tide us over while we wait? One day, people will remember that they like other genres. Market will probably crash before that though, on account of shooter-saturation and consumer fatigue.

Netflix was still working this morning. Is that still functioning? There have been a couple of times where I couldn’t get into PSN but Netflix worked. Just curious.

Btw: The network downtime has something to do with Japan. So says N4G and various twitter posts.

this is totally bogus, i want to play DCUO. i just made a new character recently and i need to work on getting them the good gear. if this is related to those hackers they need to stop as this is seriously annoying. someone needs to shut them down

Sony should really tell us what the problem is. I think we deserve it.

+ Budapesti on April 21st, 2011 at 9:46 am said:

Wondering if it has anything to do with the Steam integration in Portal 2? Everything was working fine on launch day – managed to download my PC copy and everything (not that my non-gaming laptop was able to handle it, of course!) and now the whole network is down.
People who are blaming Anonymous are probably barking up the wrong tree. The Anon ‘splinter cell’ that was DDOSing PSN stopped doing it a couple of weeks ago when they realized is was undermining their cause due to disgruntled PS3 owners.

I don’t think sony would want to say anything as this would show them being weak to hackers… probably is hackers as they havn’t gave an excuse such as are servers have been crashed due to technical reasons…. If they are saying nothing this mean they are hiding something. please stop asking about what the problem is plllllllzzzzzz

Thanks for the update. I’m sure you guys will figure out who/what is responsible and get it fixed ASAP.

+ L2K7 on April 21st, 2011 at 9:52 am said:

Hopefully it will be back up by tomorrow morning. I’ve only got a 5 hour window to get fast internet and buy/download FFIV CC, so I’m really hoping that you figure this out soon.

“It may be a full day or two?”

Really? This kind of major meltdown on Easter weekend?
I’ve had some time of today. I’ve bought Portal 2 and wanted to connect with Steam, I’ve been waiting for hours. I understand that from time to time there will be problems but this is not good if you are ‘investigating’ and don’t know what the issue it. I would prefer a paid for PSN if it means incidences like this did not happen.

Over 9 hours without comment is not good. Please can you let us know the cause and give us a proper update?

Thank you

+ DeathGazer on April 21st, 2011 at 9:58 am said:

Wow, and right after 3 big releases along with the inFamous 2 beta.

Very disappointing.

+ DiamondAces on April 21st, 2011 at 9:58 am said:

Thanks for the updates on the status though.

+ Beachnut26 on April 21st, 2011 at 9:59 am said:

Sony how about you just be honest with the people and tell them the overhaul is due to Mortal Kombat and SOCOM 4. This sucks because I have both games and this is suppose to be a huge week in the gaming world in which you now are killing for us :(


32

+ DJ24966 on April 21st, 2011 at 10:00 am said:

Some actual info would be nice, Sony.

+ Trigg on April 21st, 2011 at 10:01 am said:

This is the price of a free service.

+ Robotronfiend on April 21st, 2011 at 10:04 am said:

Is there an Android app that we can get that will send a msgupdate when the PSN is available? I really like having something like that for MMOs when they do maintenance.

Although, if PSN comes back online and welcomes me with GLaDOS’s voice, i’d be both excited and terrified. Did GLaDOS assume control of PSN and shut it down as an experiment for science? Hope her next experiment won’t be shipping out retail PS3 discs covered in neurotoxin.

Good luck with the repairs, hope its up soon!

+ Lapwner on April 21st, 2011 at 10:04 am said:

OMG I can’t sign into the PSN! I’m so sad, I was gunna play some KZ3 all day today :(

Hurry up and fix this, Sony!


36

+ YungShep on April 21st, 2011 at 10:05 am said:

wow, through the lifespan of the ps3 i’ve never heard the psn be down for a full day or two.. considering all the releases this past week and my incredible 10 win streak on king of the hill in Mortal Kombat last night….im depressed, lol but i’ll play Socom 4 single player until then


37

+ UnchainedT on April 21st, 2011 at 10:06 am said:

Are you kidding me? A day or two? I pay for PS Plus and play DC Univerise online! and you’re telling me it will be down for a day or two?!?! I don’t care what happened over there, being this unprepared is totally ridiculous


38

+ Nahela on April 21st, 2011 at 10:11 am said:

Pretty sure this has nothing to do with any sort of hacking and everything to do with Sony just botching something on their end.

+ zabelzerolp on April 21st, 2011 at 10:13 am said:

@ Robotronfiend lets hope not because I have that same dics. lol

+ BLMORRE on April 21st, 2011 at 10:14 am said:

Ah well, such is life. I’m not nearly up to date as you all are. I’m still trying to get Socom 4, but I still play CODbo, I’m disappointed that I can’t. :(

If this is the cost of freedom then where do I pay?

+ dA_dRuNkEn_OnE_ on April 21st, 2011 at 10:16 am said:

Had to be on April Vacation. Like really? I wouldn’t mind if this happened last week but now. If its a hacker ima be pissed off.
