Play On – PSN Restoration Begins Now

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on May 14, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

Thank you for your patience and encouragement over the last few weeks. As covered in the post from earlier today, you can now update the firmware on your PS3 and change your password. Kazuo Hirai just announced that we have begun the phased restoration by region of some of the services, starting with online multiplayer functionality.

Please note that these services will take a bit of time to be turned on and rolled out to the whole country. The process has begun and some states are being turned on now, so please be patient as we reach your city and state. We’ll be updating the map below as service comes online in individual states. It will take several hours to restore PSN throughout the entire country, so please keep checking back for the latest updates. In the meantime, now’s a great time to get your PS3’s firmware updated, which is required to get online.

PSN-US-Wave-6

Map updated 12:03m Pacific

Notice: If your state is illuminated but your service has not yet been restored, please be patient – it can take a little while for the servers to populate fully.

Until we get the comments functioning correctly, we’re putting all comments on hold. I’m sure Jitender would appreciate not having people put words in his mouth ^_^

In the meantime, we’ll keep updating the map, and those of you already back online – enjoy some games!

I’m so happy PSN is finally being restored! Now I’m just waiting for the store to open so I can buy a game, since I brought my PSP right before the system went down.

Hey I have a Blog share idea.

Get rid of this arrogance that you have. Start realizing your faults and fixing them instead of just assuming “we teh best everything is a-okay”. Maybe next time I won’t have to spend a couple of days canceling credit cards or changing my passwords.

I researched a little more. service error usually means your banned, as my brother had that same thing happen and he was banned.

Why is the psn timing out when i try to sign in Ive done everything I possibly can except fully restore the ps3 and i cant figure it out.
-3.61 Updates the reboot
-Changed password
-Rebooted Router
-Restored Ps3 to default settings
-Have a working internet connection
-am able to login to psn on pc

If this isnt fixed soon im not going to go to XBOX no no no….Im going to take this ps3 and smash the F out of it and not have any game system. I guess I can just use the games as frisbees w/e sony all i got to say is WTF

I’m embarrassed by the comments of some users over the past few weeks. Many were unbelievably impatient and clearly couldn’t comprehend the attack on Sony. They displayed complete stupidity as well. So, next time you guys want to leave a comment on here, read the whole message through before posting. That way you don’t ask a question that was just answered. Simply think before you speak. With all that said, Sony handled this terrible situation in the best ways possible. Thank you to everyone at Sony, and I apologize for some people’s idiotic comments.

Good now the networks. I got the YLOD a month ago. Now fix this other faulty POS that you call a console for me. For free. You guys make outdated, breakable technology, therefore you guys fix it for free.

Hello, I could not find another way to send a letter to you but anyways yesterday when the PSN came back I started to change my passwords right so I logged in and everything so I went to my sub accounts but the only thing is that I can’t log in because i need to go to my account like hotmail.com on a pc and activate my ps3 account right but the the bad thing is that the hotmail is fake I only put what ever to create a new one so what i want from you is to tell me how to activate my accounts because I can’t login on either one of my ps3 and my ps3 so if you please help me on that.

Sincerely
Edgar

Thanks for your support.
