PlayStation Network Scheduled Maintenance Thursday

Matthew Harper's Avatar + Posted by Matthew Harper on May 23, 2012 // Sr. Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

It’s been a busy month on the PSN front, as we put together yet another jam-packed PlayStation Plus update, kicked off the massively-popular Mass Effect 3: N7 Weekly Challenges, dropped the PSN exclusive game PixelJunk 4am as part of an epic PlayStation Store update, and more!

Regular maintenance is a necessary part of operating a service such as PSN. As part of our efforts to continue to deliver you a world-class online entertainment experience on your PS3 and PS Vita devices, we will be performing maintenance on the network on Thursday, May 24th, starting at approximately 8:00 am PDT / 10:00 am EDT and concluding around 11:00pm PDT / 2:00am EDT.

During this maintenance period, you may receive a message that states “PlayStation Network is undergoing maintenance” when attempting to access the PlayStation Store or PlayStation Home. Online play will not be affected and you will be able to enjoy apps such as Netflix and Amazon Instant Video during this maintenance as well, provided that you have signed into the network within 5 days prior to the start of the maintenance period.

We will update you with any changes that may occur in regards to this maintenance. If you would like to receive a notice when PSN is fully restored, be sure to follow the official PlayStation Twitter account.

Thanks for your patience and support.

I couldn’t care less if PlayStation Network had 24-hour periods of maintenance time or 2-hour periods. I think PlayStation Network is doing a great job with everything they are doing, and I hope they keep t up. I also really like how they have very kind people to speak to and get help and updates from. Thanks for the updates, Matthew. I also hate it when people use things like btw and tmi too often, but people like Matthew spell correctly and you always know what they are talking about.

I’m loving the vita. It would be nice if you guys made a shared download menu for cross platform purchases and downloads. Other than that I think the next thing to change should be putting out more apps and downloadable software like the google play store for both PS3, PSP, and Vita. I love the idea of being super connected, outside my computer and phone!

christopher despite what the cubicle dwelling trolls will claim, your far from alone in that. Whats bugging me most lately, along with my friends is the too frequent network errors, excessive downtime and this companies inability to fix the problems. It’s compounded by lack of factual communication.

“For the last time trolls we are CUSTOMERS, that gives us every right to know whats going on.”

Not at all. Sensitive information may be inadvertently revealed if too much detail is given. Many corporations keep their “tricks of the trade” under wraps in order to maintain a leg-up on the competition. It’s all common practice… you should know that since you claim to know so much about business. Chefs have secret recipes. Why don’t you send an angry e-mail to Dr. Pepper and tell them you demand to know exactly what their 23 flavors consist of?

“adequet”

Adequate?

“thise”

These?

“leave the adult conversation to the adults”

Adults usually know how to spell simple words.

” Funny how they’re acting tough while hiding behind a keyboard. I know for certain none of them would have the guts to talk that way to anyones face.”

Umm… here’s a mirror.

“Don’t like language being abused? its simple, stop abusing it.”

Based on the atrocious grammar you’ve displayed on this forum, I’d say you’re guilty of abusing the English language. Have you ever tried practicing what you preach?

Cookie-Concetta, you don’t need to bother with that loser. He’s a troll who’s lifes ambition is being a street corner evangalist for the cult of sony. And as you’ve surmised nobody takes him seriously except himself, and yes he’s still a virgin. Trolls like him resort to ad hom attacks such as picking on spelling as he has no real argument based in reality. Facts can be really annoying like that to the petty uninformed mind. As the rest of us with at least moderate intelligence its clear this is no trade secret. In fact the excessive secrecy pushes the limits of legality. Regulators & lawmakers take a dim view of deceptive business practices especially after last years psn fiasco and other overused examples normally found on Wall St.

Back to the topic at hand. I can say the PSN store came back sometime in the past 20 minutes. Home is still down atm. Not such a big deal considering the late hour here in NA but less than amusing for those in the Pacific rim.

If you don’t like Sony, it’s regulations, and “slow” products/employees, then why in the world do you own anything made by them, much less have a PlayStation account? Your hypocrisy is only making you look bad, not Sony.

“Talk about needing to get laid… Loosen your goose!”

I’ve been laid recently. How else do you think I noticed he needed it?

“Who cares if someone has bad grammar or bad spelling”

I normally don’t go after the grammar, but in this case, CaptainJames was clearly asking for it by assuming the superior position over Sony, over supposed “Sony trolls”, etc… just because he said so. Arrogant.

“people with a actaul education and a refined sence of personality and self esteem along with a large amount of interaction with other humans on a normal basis will just sit back”

Are you implying that’s you? Shameless self-promotion… yuck.

” listen in and in there mind adjust the wrongs and try not to make themselves look like idiots whiling pointin out faults”

So, you’re not trying to point out what you think is a FAULT in me? Have you looked up the word hypocrisy in the dictionary?

@CaptainJames99:

You said: “He’s a troll who’s lifes ambition is being a street corner evangalist for the cult of sony. And as you’ve surmised nobody takes him seriously except himself, and yes he’s still a virgin.”

Then you followed it up with: “Trolls like him RESORT TO AD HOM ATTACKS”

See where you goofed, genius? Oh, you don’t? I should have known. Let me point it out for you. You made FOUR ad hominem attacks on me in ONE short paragraph… then claimed that I’m the one who does such a thing. And to make it even funnier, pointing out your grammar flubs wasn’t even an ad hominem attack, since you ACTUALLY DID MAKE THOSE MISTAKES! Do you not know what “Ad Hominem” means?

Don’t worry Wanda, I don’t use PlayStationHome.

No, Cookie-Conchetta, (who is probably just an alt of CaptainJames), we have never met in any online game before.

Wow… 6 posts from 3 different accounts coming after me… yet not one proved an actual error on my part. 6 posts full of nothing but over-aggressive speculation… and numerous contradictions. Again, CaptainJames, and to your new found friends, I suggest you have a quick glance in a mirror. Self-correction is desperately needed on your part. Collectively, you’ve shot yourself in the foot at least 10 times already.

@Wanda_Lust:

“I’ve had two 30 day bans because of guys like primer.”

No, you’ve had two 30-day bans because of yourself. How classless it is to blame your lack of self-control on someone else. No one is forcing you to reply to anyone, and if you do reply, it is easily possible to keep your posts within the realm of respectability so that you don’t ever receive such punishment. But of course, you refuse to engage in self-correction… you refuse to look at yourself as the possible culprit…

You still have a very long way to go. Such a shame.

After reading this quote carefully, I noticed a few errors. I won’t take the time to get out my red ink pen and correct them, but i will say this. You wrote “People with “a” actaul… please note the word “actual”… I thought I should point those out for you. English, and Grammar were my favorite subjects in school along with science. I’ve since graduated from High School 24 years ago, and went to College to major in Computer Science. Pleas have a fantastic weekend. c(:

And yes you do care… replying again proves that you care. Try being honest with yourself. It’s good for you.

You can also use your little red pen to add an “e” to the word “please”. Oh, that was just a typo? Your finger didn’t hit the key hard enough? You also didn’t capitalize an I. Oh, you didn’t press down on the Shift key hard enough, right? Well, since we already know you like to shift the blame away from yourself, I bet you’re saying: “It’s that darn keyboard’s fault, not mine!”

English and Grammar may have been your favorites, but they clearly weren’t your strongest areas… hee hee hee…

Btw, as we can all see cogito and dilbag are both members of the sony defense force. Really its just a demented cult with no basis in reality. Luckily they are too cowardly to say it to any of our faces, nor intelligence to back up their drivel. Whats funny is they think their own stupidity reflects badly on the rest of us. While they might prove entertaining to a handful of rabid fanatics like themselves they prove nothing. They rely on the same childish insults mistakenly believing they might one day fool someone. For those who haven’t seen them before, fear not, they won’t carry out their empty threats.

I guarantee that YOU are the one who wouldn’t speak to anyone’s face the way you speak on here. You’re reflecting yourself again.

“Whats funny is they think their own stupidity reflects badly on the rest of us.”

Is that even supposed to mean anything? More inane speculation?

“They rely on the same childish insults”

Holy @#$%… for the third time now, James, please, get a mirror. You’ve done nothing but throw out insult after insult after insult after insult after insult after insult… and on and on. When you insult people that many times, you have no right to complain about anyone else’s supposed insults.

“believing they might one day fool someone”

Reflecting yourself, yet again. You’re the one who isn’t fooling anyone.

“For those who haven’t seen them before, fear not, they won’t carry out their empty threats”

First, point out where I made any threat (yet another ad hominem), and second, are you paranoid about something?

This is crap and you know it! You told us 2am Eastern time, and it’s now just a couple minutes before 6am Eastern time, and guess what? There’s still no connectivity!! You need to get your thumbs out of your butts and send out at least a 3 days notice to EVERY ONE of your PSN contributors when you pull this kind of crap, then get it back on line when you say you will….. Like last year when you went down, you said half a month to a month, and it was almost 4. And what sucks now like then is that you don’t communicate your progress, the problem of not making the deadline time, or a true apology for those of us that have paid for plus or sunk a lot of money into the PSNetwork. I’m doing my best to watch what I say like you asked, but every other word wants to curse you out til you cry.
