PlayStation Network Scheduled Maintenance Thursday

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on Aug 10, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

PlayStation Network is scheduled to undergo routine maintenance tomorrow, August 11th, from about 8am until approximately 7pm Pacific Time. During this time, registration and Account Management will be inaccessible, including the password reset process. While some users may experience difficulty signing into PSN and the PlayStation Store, the majority of users will be able to play online as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one).

Stay tuned to the PlayStation Twitter feed for updates and a notice when maintenance has concluded.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

really they give a nice update so that when they tell use that they are going under maintenance it doesn’t make us as enraged with Sony? Ok maybe not enraged but really you had nearly a month to do “Maintenance”. If you are about to release new features great if not, no more PSN breaks please…

You all DID read the part that said “While some users may experience difficulty signing into PSN and the PlayStation Store, the majority of users will be able to play online..” right? Big deal, you can’t change your avatar today.

@mixedkidbx

I highly doubt they haven’t noticed.

I think it’s more likely that they are completely aware of it and it’s just taken them a long time to fix. Possibly because they don’t want to take PSN down any significant length of time to fix it so shortly after a month long outage.

I hope Sony gives us the ability to change our PSN IDs!

If they really haven’t noticed they haven’t been collecting sales tax on PSN since It’s been back up, something is seriously wrong with them.

Hey, thanks for fixing the Friends List organization issue. It is currently in alphabetical order, but before it was fixed, it was technically in alphabetical order, but capitalized letters were first and lowercase last.

EXAMPLE
Before: A B C a b c
After: A a B b C c

Anyway, it was a small issue, but thanks for fixing it. =D

Some of you guys really need to read.

“During this time, registration and Account Management will be inaccessible, including the password reset process. While some users may experience difficulty signing into PSN and the PlayStation Store, the majority of users will be able to play online as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one).”

You will be able to get on and play like normal. SOME people will experience difficulty signing in. DIFFICULTY, so it just means it might take a few tries. You might also get signed out randomly, but you will be able to sign back in.

Hope this helps.

How about the ability to give away virtual items as gifts on home, that would be neat. And don’t worry about cross game chat, that’s a stupid idea. The kind that belongs on other kiddie consoles.

SONY!!!! WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TELL ALL OF YOUR POOR FAITHFUL CONSUMERS THAT CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT IS NOT POSSIBLE ON THE PS3?
IT IS EXTREMELY DISRESPECTFUL TO CONTINUE TO LIE TO THEM AND LEAD THEM TO BELIEVE AND WONDER WITH EACH UPDATE THAT IT’S COMING.

I WILL NEVER EVER EVER BUY ANOTHER SONY CONSOLE BECAUSE THE WAY YOU HAVE TREATED YOUR LOYAL CONSUMERS ON THIS ISSUE. FROM NOW ON I WILL BUY ALL MULTIPLATFORM TITLES ON THE CONSOLE THAT DOES HAVE PARTY CHAT.

TO THE FELLOW PS COMMUNITY MEMBERS: IF YOU AGREE WITH ME AND ARE TIRED OF GETTING THE COLD SHOULDER FROM SONY ON THIS TOPIC AND WANT A STRAIGHT AND HONEST ANSWER FROM SONY ON THiS MATTER I SUGGEST YOU POST EVERY SINGLE DAY ON THIS BLOG IN EVERY BLOG POST STATING THAT WE WANT AN ANSWER AS TO IF CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT IS POSSIBLE ON THE PS3 AND IF SO WHEN IT IS COMING AND WHY WE HAVEN’T GOTTEN A STRAIGHT ANSWER FOR YEARS!
