PSN Update

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on Apr 25, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.

As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.

Thank you.

I am not really upset about the time that PSN has been down, because I know that it takes time to rebuild a network. The only problem in this whole situation that has been not letting customers know if their info has been compromised. It is sad that many have had to rush to call their credit card companies to check on status. Maybe it is a ploy to sell more psn cards, I don’t know but that is the only thing that I have issue with during this crisis. It gives off a message of total disregard. Well no need in beating a dead horse.

Working on Mini Ninjas myself….about to enter boss battle……oh noes, will I survive?!?!

I do have backtracking to do (gather and do a few things for smaller trophies), but i have to replay it at another difficulty level so I’ll not bothering since I have another playthrough.

Updates (heh) throughout the day. Stay tuned! :D

+ monyking on April 26th, 2011 at 7:06 am said:

well, since the PSN is down, I have been trying to get some of those trophies from Modern Warfare 2. I think this gives everybody a chance to get finish the collection of Trophies from the games that have been getting dusty. I was pissed and angry but, I see a good way of just playing the games and ACTUALLY finishing them to get all the trophies. Just hope that the security of the PSN is more stable and un-lockable in the near future.
I will wait with patience.

Well, this is interesting:
TYO:6758
2,415.00
-52.00 (-2.11%) This is the stock Options for Sony.
You guys are right when you say ony is losing money .. just Google TYO:6758 that is the main Cooperations stock area. Looks like Sony just launched a new Tablet PC as well. In earnest, I can not say waht will become of the PS3 if the outage continues but if it lasts for more then another week, I am not sure what to think.


479

+ jazzyrider on April 26th, 2011 at 7:19 am said:

So no Tuesday store or PSN updates?!?

+ kingotnw on April 26th, 2011 at 7:50 am said:

Lol @data… You seriously think Sony stock is dropping because of the PSN outage? Lololol


481

+ datastorm98632 on April 26th, 2011 at 8:08 am said:

In No way shape or form am I stating that, it would be very prudent to study all things effecting Sony at the Moment . There company is starting to feel a great deal of pain from the disaster in Japan to many other areas.
They Just launched a new Tablet PC and its not going to well as of yet. The gaming part of Sony is having its issues and Sony has had post pone there posting of there earnings. This makes for an interesting situation for Sony, Sony aka TYO 6758 , needs to do some serious planning if they want there company to survive. One annalists suggests that Sony is on a downward spiral and possibly in trouble.
They had to lay off a great number of people and closed a number of actual gaming studios. 1 in Seattle, 1 in Belvue and others located in parts of the US. all clsoures are due to needing to save money and to remain at the top of the ladder . They have laid off a great number of employees already this year.

@ 480

…of course it is dropping because of the PSN outage! They have lost Millions in terms of potential purchases, they have to reimburse people on paid subscriptions, DLC content for new games is at $0…


483

+ VanishedNine on April 26th, 2011 at 8:13 am said:

So what are the PS+ offerings for today…oh wait.

+ kmg90 on April 26th, 2011 at 8:14 am said:

Thanks for the update that you don’t have an update…


485

+ sid4peeps on April 26th, 2011 at 8:24 am said:

the PSN+ items for today included a 4 year old PSN game with 5 DLC packs (not free)…


486

+ Nahela on April 26th, 2011 at 8:29 am said:

So this whole thing now officially irritates me. No PSN now means no Tuesday update, no new things for PS+, and another week without DLC that should have been available.

What bothers me most, however, is the complete lack of any form of open communication. Being vague doesn’t help, it doesn’t magically make the situation look better. It’s the biggest marketing and PR mistake that’s been made a million times. Withholding information just leads to wild speculation and people digging to discover problems that never would have been known before.

Taking a broader view, PSN has 75 million accounts and is responsible for safeguarding the personal information and credit card details of users all over the world. The implications to a completely unknown hacker or group of hackers – whether a splinter of Anonymous, as some have suggested, or not – waltzing around PSN to such a degree that Sony has to take it offline for the best part of a week, will be casting a long shadow over Mr Hirai’s office tonight.

Sony’s escalation of its war on hacking could potentially threaten not only Sony’s ability to cut content deals, but, in a nightmare scenario, may compromise personal information of its millions of users.
Sony must demonstrate it is capable of dealing with this situation right now. If these episodes become regular in any way, PSN’s users, core or not, will lose faith in its brand and gravitate elsewhere. PSN must be robust enough to withstand external influences, whatever they are.
in Other words if Sony can not handle this, they will be forced into a position that will shut there gaming end down.

Funny…Sony’s PSN Japan site has not had an update in the last 2 days…that’s even worse than what’s going on here in North America…

Sony, are you that STUPID not to issue proper press releases?!?!?!?!

+ loneherozero on April 26th, 2011 at 8:36 am said:

Oh here is something really weird for you to munch on lol.
The hacker accused of violating US copyright law when he hacked the PlayStation 3 game console has donated $10,000 to the “Electronic Frontier Foundation”after Sony dropped the controversial lawsuit. George Hotz, aka GeoHot, announced the donation on Saturday, five days after he and Sony settled their legal tiff.

+ loneherozero on April 26th, 2011 at 8:48 am said:

i agree, with that statement, rushing things only leave it open to fail again and even be worse! i pray that sony takes there time and makes sure that the PSN is secure enough so that this wont happen again, in fact i hope they go over the op to prevent a even worse case event like this one so that i wont happen, you cna never be too safe

news report on ctv. ca (CTV being one of Canada’s big news agents)

“Now, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the system is down “indefinitely” and that some users’ personal information may be at risk. Users register credit card numbers to buy gaming products online. ”

oh well…we all knew Sony would continue to disappoint…it’s not like they make people happy…
