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.

Since you’re rebuilding the network maybe you could just go ahead & throw in support for changing user IDs… Personal agenda aside I appreciate Sony taking the network down instead of waiting & hoping for the best.

As for the hackers, I really hope they understand how much they’ve alienated a large group of people that were, prior to this stunt, very largely supportive of them. Now they’ve opened our eyes to how they are completely willing to hurt “the little guy” in their efforts to take on their targets, and move forward with total disregard to anybody but themselves.

Well it’s now going into Day 6 of the PSN being down, and still no sign of it coming back and still no actual helpful information on the status.

… At this rate, I’d say that the PS4 or NGP will come out before the PSN is put back up.

Well that’s great Sony, another post saying the same thing as the others. I’m sure we can all expect a full report about this once this issue is resolved. Thank you Sony, for improving the PlayStation Network, and I hope to be back online by tomorrow and gaming with you.

on a more info based note will thoughs that had a trial for mk gi the chance to go online or are we just scruew out of online until we by a pass, seems wrong for us all to be punished for one idiots actions. by the way are we going to get all the things that we were suposed to get this week and any other until this is resolved after it has been resolved.

i think that people just need the bare assentials for gaming, yeah daily updates would be awesome but we already know that sony isn’t going to change the way thay have done things for so long so people just quit askeing for comp over online lodd.

Ok I understand tat there is a lot to providing service to people.
There is the hardware as well as as the software. Tests and such have to be done.
We on this end have very little experienced unless there are those that work on net works as there jobs. This How ever is a big Job. We can not possibly conceive that we know it all. How ever What we should expect that a Major Cooperation should have spent the time and effort to prevent such a failure. Sony Didn’t plan for the worst case scenario, but then I guess no one can guess everything.

Well, we all found one thing to be self evident Bad Karma on Customers = Bad Karma on to Sony.

@JohnnyAngel13
Are you suggesting that Sony could get sued for having the PSN down for so long?

I doubt it.

They could get sued if:

1. our credit card information was compromised
2. our personal information was compromised


332

+ Unseen_Soul on April 25th, 2011 at 6:57 pm said:

You people need to get real

1)Your credit cards are fine and if someone was to take the info, report it and get the charges cancelled, NOT THAT HARD.

2) As stated by the LBP2 page and in Sony’s USER AGREEMENT- You will not be compensated for down time. Get over it.

3)There is more (hopefully) to your lives then playing games all day so FFS, go out and make some dang friends and stop complaining like the world just ended

If Sony has taken reasonable measure to protect such information, an attempt to sue them would be wasted.

It’s sad seeing how many people are quick to accuse and blame Sony for what is happening. It’s easy to blame the victim, especially of the victim has tons of money.

Why not blame the hackers? Oh yeah. Of course. They’re harder to locate and pin down. So, go after the rich owner/company.

In the last few days Sony and it’s partners have very likely lost millions of dollars. Now we see opportunists who would like to further victimize Sony. Good luck, chummers.

Anyone who has experienced it knows all too well – video game addiction is real. Although gaming addiction is not yet officially recognized as a diagnosable disorder by the American Medical Association, there is increasing evidence that people of all ages, especially teens and pre-teens, are facing very real, sometimes severe consequences associated with compulsive use of video and computer games.

Top 5 Signs You Need Help With Gaming or Internet Addiction

Do you or someone you know spend too much time playing video or computer games or going online? Here are some ways to tell if you need to ask for help:

1. You feel really happy when you’re online or when you’re playing games, but as soon as you have to stop, you get angry or upset.
2. You think about going online or playing when you are supposed to be focusing on other things, like doing school work or having dinner with your family.
3. You spend more time with your keyboard or controller than physically hanging out with your friends.
4. Your friends or parents ask what you spend all your time doing, and you lie about it or laugh it off, but inside you know they may have a point.
5. You get up in the middle of the night to check your e-mail or your MySpace comments because you’re having a hard time sleeping.

@DazeOfWar How long was it down in 2007?? a week? No just a few days.

If your a playstation plus member your still paying for their services, I cant access the store now or for the last 5+ days.

You kept signing in and out of Xbox live cause you have a crappy connection, that is all. Never happened to me and I use DSL. Check your wifi connection or feed the hamsters and you wont keep logging off and on.

AND their NOW excuse that it had a bug that allowed people to access a dummy accounts to get stuff for free from the playstation store is crap also,

Reason they say PSN is down now…
http://www.computerandvideogames.com/299243/news/playstation-network-taken-down-to-halt-piracy/

xbox had the same issue March 9th and they never went offline.

Just admit you work for sony or your a fan boy but unless your a complete tool ANY company that is this loose and unsecured and takes this long to come back online is not a good company to support.

Hi Jayson!

Blog getting slower and slower….we’ll see who the hard core people are. :)

Anyone use one of those move guns? That Socom deployment bundle seems to be a good deal, more for the move stuff (dont have any) than the game, but nevertheless, just wondering how they are working out…well at least during single player action. ;)
