If I start the Portal 2 campaign right now will I be able to sync my achievements to Steam once the PSN is back up or do they only unlock on Steam if I am signed in to PSN?

PS3: It only does outages.

For all those posting ‘FML’, ‘Kill Anonymous!’, ‘Easter is ruined!’ etc. etc… you could always, y’know, go outside/get a girlfriend/read a book or something. It’s just a bloody games console. :)

Fail – perfect timing. Out of Sony’s control I guess, I just hope this gets resolved soon.

While it sucks that psn is down cause I can’t watch my mlb tv on it,I’m not worried about it . Tons and tons of games to play anyway . Most of which I haven’t finished the offline portion of .

Hey Sony,
bet you wish you’d left the OtherOS function alone now, right?

People…QUIT YOUR CRYING. For the love of Christ you WILL survive. Find something better to do with your lives besides complain about not being able to live online for a day or two. SMH PSCommunity

+ Budapesti on April 21st, 2011 at 12:40 pm said:

Just occurred to me though, if this is the result of a DDOS attack or hacking, those responsible (and Anonymous has said it’s not them) are probably doing Sony a favor.
I mean, PSN runs at a loss – despite overpriced DLC and other microtransactions – so the longer it remains down, the less bandwidth is consumed and, thus, it’s actually saving Sony money.
Hackers might be smart with computers, but I don’t think this has been fully thought through.

+ sid4peeps on April 21st, 2011 at 12:42 pm said:

on Anonymous IRC, it states…

“#OpSony (webchat)
Submitting credit card details will allow you to use PSN again”

LOL…like anyone will hand over their credit card info to a hacktavist group…lol..

it may just be a faction of Anon doing this, or it could just be a power failure in japan…lol…who knows…


114

+ Sirynx77 on April 21st, 2011 at 12:42 pm said:

I wonder if Anonymous decided to attack the Qriocity Network(used by Bravia TVs and Sony Blu-Ray players) but not the PSN. The problem is that since April 1st, the two networks were entirely merged but no one in the group knew this. So… the IDIOTS attacked the Qriocity network only to find that the PSN went down with it. OOPS… I wonder why they have been silent…

+ digitalman123 on April 21st, 2011 at 12:46 pm said:

Aww, and I wanna update my trophies! :P
Maybe the overall server overloaded because so many great online games just came out, and too many people are playing at the same time?


116

+ digitalman123 on April 21st, 2011 at 12:49 pm said:

Well, at least I have a good/acceptable reason to bring Eyepet back out. Haven’t played it since Christmas, and was meaning to get back to it.

+ FRANKMAN1 on April 21st, 2011 at 12:50 pm said:

Hope all this rumors are fake and hope they dont mess with my credit card info…

+ anotherdae on April 21st, 2011 at 12:54 pm said:

Maybe its that crappy Cinavia software you put on the Bluray player. I though it could play everything?

THIS SUCKS!!! WHEN THE GOOD GAMES ARE OUT TOO! PERFECT TIMING

I wish Sony would admit wat the REAL problem is instead of saying its just maintenance, rite now alot of ppl are assuming its hackers which is most likely the issue. I just wish they would give us an up front answer to this


121

+ erick_34 on April 21st, 2011 at 1:12 pm said:

the hackers are poor person and are crap in the video games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


122

+ Lance_Akiro on April 21st, 2011 at 1:18 pm said:

Here’s the problem when people informs the truth about anything and i mean anything. It causes a riot and also chaos. If anyone informs anything about whats going on. then it only takes one person to take that truth and STRETCH it out. Making a really big issue. so in this case you don’t really want to say what the situation is due to that reason. yes it would be nice but you really don’t want to worry the fans now would you? and besides it gets these people on there toes and you hear the most interesting assumptions.


123

+ iKingAces on April 21st, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

Jesus! So many messages, lets get real though people. This is Sony, do you think their going to admit “hey, PSCommunity, we got hacked again”? No, they’re gonna try and cover up as much as possible. I can’t believe this is seriously gonna take a full day(or two). I wanted to play some Socom 4, Killzone 3 or MK online, but I guess I’ll just play EyePet, and try to platinum it.


124

+ AzureSkieth on April 21st, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

Madness! If this is because of the hackers, then they are to never be trusted. After they stated that they will not attack PSN and leave us gamers alone, this would be a display of a lack of trust. If they want to prove a point, leave us out of it. Jackasses.


125

+ iTofuMan on April 21st, 2011 at 1:25 pm said:

At least you guys are aware of the issue. hopefully we dont have to wait too long, but ya im getting an error too. i tried to long in today (my day off) and it keeps giving me the same error. again i hope you guys are able to slove the problem.

So why can I comment here but not login to psn on my ps3? also, Im very very close to tracking down a few of that BS KIddie group the A Name or Nots, anons. Bloody fools, alot of other hackers play video games, this just gives me more time to research who the main people are. I already have what may be one of the main starters of the group. And there will be attacks against them. Come on hackers who love their games and PSN, lets attack them right back at their precious and likewise FREE network IRC . Lets ddos the carp outta IRC. I know I will.

If the hackers mess with credit card info then they can easily be charged. i hope they get sued anyways. bunch of jackass’s. if you dont like sony than buy the other box don’t ruin gaming for other people

Unfortunate…. Portal 2, Socom 4, and Portal 2 online are a huge deal to me this week. Oh well, at least Netflix works.

Okay we’ll least i know im not the only one.. the past couple of days i would sign online. and it wouldnt let me on PSN. Then i would try again and it would work. but ever since yesterday it wont let me on at all. So hopefully they are fxing this problem..


135

+ LordRaymond on April 21st, 2011 at 1:49 pm said:

Hm oh well just get it back up as soon as you can. Anyways if I were Sony, I would not tell the truth because it always leads to more trouble.

Thank god I got Portal 2 and MLB 11 The Show to hold me over, but still c’mon Sony I would love if you guys could keep your act together for a solid month

@sid4peeps what do you want SONY give us free games and DLC??? you are crazy and about Playstation Plus, Sony not put you a gun in your head to buy it… you buy the Playstation Plus if you want and of course we pay Playstation Plus for better service and free stuff, if you want free stuff and better service join Playstation Plus and people please stop blaming Playstation Plus.

Definition of hacker = the hacker is a poor person and is a crap playing video games

The hackers are crap!!!!

and finally…

i want play Socom 4 online!!!!!!!!

Is this in any way, shape or form related to the Amazon EC2 outage?

+ ne4ious on April 21st, 2011 at 2:33 pm said:

and I’m sure SONY PSN+ users will be offered an extension of their benefits due to the lack of services provided. please do something about us who bought into this service with some kind of perk.

+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on April 21st, 2011 at 2:34 pm said:

anonymous…..they are using BLACKMAIL tactics to scare PSN users, Don’t these attacks resemble Terrorism? Time to get the FBI and CIA involved, heck CSIS, The Kremlin and the rest. As for the dude who said hes part of Soviet Security Tech then have at it. I even found the site that anonymous uses to spread news amongst it members. My list of names, websites and i.p. addresses is growing. I intend to catch them myself, even if nobody else is willing to help out.

PLEASE DDOS IRC

Fortunately for me, I have a lot of campaigns to finish for my offline time. Also the first thing I did on Tuesday was set up my PSN/Steam sync and activate my Portal 2 PC code.

I’ll probably just finish up my socom 4 campaign and play portal 2 on the pc until this is resolved.
