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.

One more thing, seriously people. Why are you so hurt over Cross Game Chat?
It’s not important, it’s not necessary and most of all it’s silly. Social networking shouldn’t be a part of videogames. I for one will not stand for that crap to ruin gaming. It’s why I can’t stand playing on the 360. Every minute, HEY JOIN MY PARTY. — Just to hear my friends whine and complain about being killed in COD.

If anything Cross Game chat is detrimental to actual teamwork. Since you’re not talking to your teammates.
When I was offline , what did I do? I hopped on my cellphone. I don’t feel like dragging my personal life into my online life and I don’t appreciate people trying to force them together.

I just want my gaming to be separate and fun again. No cross game chats, no trophies, no achievements, no DLC . I just want games to be like they were on the PS2. Spend 60 dollars on a game, and get the entire game. Not 4 hours of content and 55 dollars worth of DLC available on the PSN.

How do some of you guys believe that you wont be able to sign in tomorrow? It is ignorance in its purest form. If you would only read this fine article Mr. Seybold has provided us with, you would understand. It CLEARLY states ”

“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).”

I’ll paste it again………………………………………..

“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 onliat require PSN authentication (like this one).”

YOU WILL TILL BE ABLE TO SIGN IN! YOU WILL TILL BE ABLE TO SIGN IN!

YOU WILL TILL BE ABLE TO SIGN IN! YOU WILL TILL BE ABLE TO SIGN IN!

Ok, i’ll calm down now, but seriously, you might have to try to sign in more than once, but you will still be able to sign in.

LOL cross chat, id names change and music while playing…

cross chat is useless everyone have a cellphone for those situation anyway you don’t see what your friend is doing why you want to hear him complain because he messes up in the game

Id changes, why do you need to change your id??? just create a new account…

music while playing… go get a radio…. anyway music have to be played on a good sound system not a tv or a surround system…

Anyone else get a weird error after this update? I tried booting up some blu-ray games and it said “error occurred during start operation”. I have never seen this in my life.

I restarted the PS3, and then did the hard start (where it resets the video/sound settings), and it fixed it.

+ ConquerorTMNT on August 11th, 2011 at 2:20 am said:

The ability to change your PSN ID would be nice. And I do not want to make a new account because that would mean I would have to start all of the games I’ve completed all over again, and I would have to earn the trophies all over again. Not going to do that…

Oh boy, I wonder what this update is going to contain, I can’t wait! But I find confusing is why people are asking for “cross game chat” and “PSN ID change” This isn’t xbox just so you know guys! And quite frankly, I DO own an xbox.

None of you boneheads who thinks cross-game chat is useless ever has to use it. But it would be a nice option for those who would want to use it. Kind of like trophies, friends lists, Netflix/TV support, etc.

It’s silly to think that the only features that should ever be added to a console are the ones that 100% of players want.

Asking for cross-game chat or an explanation for why they can’t have it is a legitimate request.

+ bldudas on August 11th, 2011 at 4:45 am said:

Wow, I agree with ein_nineteenth. If my friend on the 360 wasn’t so nice, I would never use cross game chat on it.
Cross game chat can be so distracting, too.


93

+ Ivan_MF on August 11th, 2011 at 4:54 am said:

I do believe trophy synching should be avaiable for everyone, as I can`t see ppl subscribing for PS+ with this feature in mind. Also, cross game chat would be a nice addition; but I just can`t stop thinking about the possibilities of exploitation.
As this doens`t seem to be coming so soon, work around with skype, teamspeak etc. I have my notebook right next to my PS3, for streamming and browsing.
The 3.70 system had a few tweaks on other stuff besides PS+ exclusive.
Just one more thing: sorry for the bad english. ˆˆ

Cross game chat is never happening on the PS3, lack of system ram, lag………………………………. Sony never designed the PS3 to adquately work with it. Ps3 was a disaster for software design.

Also, its a useless feature I hve a 360. i can chat with my firends onlin on PS3 fine when playing the same game. Why would I want to chat with friends when im playing God of war and they are playing COD? Idiotic and distracting and immersion breaking playing opposite games.

If u need to rely on your console to socialize get a life. I play games to unwind and relax after a long day.

+ mastorofpuppetz on August 11th, 2011 at 4:59 am said:

@92, where you get your stats your arse? I have a 360, Cross game chat is the most overrated and useless feature. The only diff right now is you have to be in the same game, please, its not a big deal. many do not want it as the comments show here, and the blog also has thousands of votes saying its not needed.

cross game chat is really annoying, distracting for many who have a life outside their console LOL.
