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.

Anyone ever buy any of the PSN games from Amazon? I’d imagine you get a code to redeem like I did when I did it off Gamestop’s site (found a few things cheaper, have the bonus card, blah blah), but I’ll shop for a better deal.

Speaking of which, see a couple of sales there…..hmmmm. Too bad I wont buy anything until we’re live again. I’ve probably spent 30-60 mins a day in the store for the last several weeks…i want to buy something already gosh-darn-it! :D

And for the price of the deployment bundle…i can sure get alot of psn games….tough decisions. :D

NBA? ROFL OH OH, they touched me…FOUL….traveling all the time….48972369434 time outs in the last 2 minutes of a close game, which (and I actually timed this once)….took 36 minutes to finish. that’s pathetic.

Hockey has flow, has physical play, and something more than either a 3 pt shot or watching highlights of 87216723 versions of how to dunk of ball. SNORE!

I heard the problem is related to custom firmware being abused. Anyway, I don’t expect any free stuff, but there are some things I want to see on the PSN when its revived. Legend of Dragoon, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Costume Pack for Little Big Planet 2 (featuring Ty, Sly, Ranger Ken, Shazza, and Julian), and official Murray, Carmelita, and Neyla Costumes for Little Big Planet 2. Any chance they will be on PSN when its back up? I have a PSN card I want to use.

So apparently they lied… CC info is safe.. Its just that a homebrew app was letting people add unlimited funds to their PSN wallet and buy whatever they wanted for free. I don’t blame them for shutting it down, however I don’t know why they didn’t just say that in the first place instead of making everyone worry about their CC info.

$25 for all PS3 owners?! Lol… Talking 60 million x $25… lol No way. I wouldn’t be suprised if they gave us a free game out of a selection of games they gave the “ok” to, but No way we get $25, or anything close to that.

Sony has not yet determined if the personal information or credit card numbers of users have been compromised, but that Sony would promptly inform users if it found that was the case.

Did Hackers Get Root access that may have allowed hackers to see source code and private information?
Is this the reason why Sony is so tight lipped?


365

+ Autoxfool on April 25th, 2011 at 8:10 pm said:

A sidenote, if you have LBP and like Pirates….Gamestop has a combo pack with levels and costumes that I have not seen elsewhere (at least together) and for a good price (7.99).

Top 3 games currently looking forward too (and will own at some point):

Battlefield 3, Dirt 3, and Elder Scrolls. PSN wise – Journey, Costume Quest, and 3v3 NHL Arcade. :)


366

+ Autoxfool on April 25th, 2011 at 8:18 pm said:

Okay, pay no attention to the previous post about the LBP….see it on Amazon….on sale no less, for $5.99. DOH! Well in my defense, I was unaware that amazon sold downloads at that particular time.

Anyone else here? Quit yammering about Sony, not like they are reading this, and I doubt we’re going to get much more information until we actually go live again. Until then, we shall have to find interesting topics of discussion. :)

Well, I did not update my console. and after this fiasco, I can not trust any updates from Sony any more.
You promised us security, you were so focused on the consoles that you forgot your very own network.
I say you got blind sided with a sucker punch. The hackers forced you to ficus so much on the console, that you were not anticipating this.
If you think about it, It was a very complicated plan.
1 attack the console in such a way that Sony would have to create mandatory updates , then hit em hard when they weren’t looking. If you ask me that was a pretty brilliant plan. Now I am not for illegal intrusion, but I do respect the aspect of the idea and that makes for a formidable opponent. . War fare on any front is ugly, were merely the casualties of this war..

This is getting ridiculous. The main problem is that I can’t even access other features like Netflix. It is one thing to not be able to play online and check the Playstation Store, but the fact that features are rendered useless because I can’t log into my account is getting unacceptable. These are things that cause you to lose your fan base. You are now forcing me to play more on my Xbox. Furthermore, anyone considering buying a new game right now isn’t going to purchase it for Playstation if they know of the network problems. You guys are losing money and upsetting your customers the longer this goes on.

Please finish what ever measures you are taking soon, so that I can get back to enjoying the full PS3 experience.

Are you going to do anything for customers to make up for the inconvenience ? I paid for Plus service that I am not getting to fully use right now.

@364 you can use Netflix, I am watching it right now. You just vae to go through the process of signing in and having it tell you the network is down two times. Hit X, not O.


374

+ SHOR73RM on April 25th, 2011 at 8:45 pm said:

@ ccanfield1:

You can still watch Netflix and Vudu (if you have it).
I’m watching it right now.

When you log on, it will ask you to log in: hit ok, you’ll see it load in the background
Then you’ll get the unable to connect, hit circle and enjoy.

you may have to do that once or twice, just don’t quit out, trust me and get back at me!

@ 357+ datastorm98632 . Your not going to see ANY source code as the result of any server access . source code precompiled code before it’s turned into a working program .

alot of what you think .. is after – the – fact . conjecture . do you really think SNEA just got into networking yesterday ? OR this was in all actuallity an inevitablity , given that even government run servers that have the highest utmost security has been successfully hacked . BTW the very fact that SNEA employees detet.ted an intrusion goes alot towards their proffessionalism and skill as detecting them can be a feat within itself . i ‘ll continue to update … nothing bad has ever happened as a result of doing so .. and i’m most certainly not going to pretend that fiasco’s like these have happened often on the psn .

The sky is blue.
The grass is green.
Will PSN be up by Halloween?

Why am I still here? La la la la la la.

Where am I again? What’s going on? Oh right, PSN is down. I’m glad they’re taking their time with whatever it is they’re all doing, and making sure this is fixed right and not some cheap quick patch slapped on it. I’m fine with not knowing what’s all going on, and it’s probably better that way. I don’t even have my CC info on there anyways since it stopped randomly working last month. And as for compensation? I’m still not expecting much of anything which is perfectly fine.

End.

Codename: REBUG is to blame, it’s a custom firmware that allows your console to be turned into a debug unit and then allows the ability to create debug accounts. Which then allows the user to steal content from the PS Store.
