PlayStation Network Temporary Unscheduled Maintenance

Patrick Seybold's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

UPDATE: The PSN is now back online. We’ll be updating the PlayStation Store shortly – keep your eyes on the PlayStation Blog for Grace’s Store Update post.

As some of you may have noticed, we’ve temporarily taken down some functions of PlayStation Network – specifically access to the PlayStation Store, account management and registration. Online gameplay will remain uninterrupted. We thank you for your patience and will report back here as soon as the Store and registration functions are back online.

oohh thanks for the heads up. So is there no Store update today?

While you guys are at it, please hurry up with a fix for the scan lines and interlacing problems on the PSP-3000. The PlayStation forums are lighting up with threads about these problems. I would rather not have to cancel my pre-order of the Black 4gb bundle if I can help it.

HOME coming to PS store tonight….CONFIRMED…..LOL

Just kidding, but I’m allowed to dream…right?

Let’s hope it goes back up later so that I can purchase SOCOM

Excellent that you are using the Playstation blog venue to issue important information updates!
… this is often the first place people look!

(which is a credit to those who thought up the concept of the Playstation blog!)

Oh man, could this mean we are about to get something good???

………….or just some maintenance.

FrozoneUSMC said:

October 16th, 2:02 pm

Its SOCOM. Too many people downloading lol.

youngr said:

October 16th, 2:02 pm

I’m going to take a wild guess and say this is probably because of the home beta updates and the resistance 2 public beta codes going out. Probably a whole lot of people trying to download stuff caused major slow down or a crash entirely – either way – I just can’t wait to get back to playing the resistance 2 beta

do you have an idea of around what time the services will be back up?

jbenn911 said:

Thanks for the heads up..subscribed to this posting…shame, i got my R2 beta code today and was really looking forward to checking it out !!!!

dynasty said:

October 16th, 2:03 pm

so i get home and have a beta code for R2, and cant use it :(
thanks for the update though

Netweb said:

October 16th, 2:03 pm

Up for USA store update?

happy_spud said:

October 16th, 2:04 pm

Here I am boasting about getting my R2 Beta code on the last post, and I can’t even access PSN to download it! Grrrr. I’m suspecting Home as well. Makes you wonder, huh?

shooter0784 said:

October 16th, 2:06 pm

it cant be because too many people are downloading because i just downloaded high velocity bowling version 1.20

just a heads up to anyone that was lookin forward to it

High Velocity Bowling 1.20 is available

srmej said:

October 16th, 2:07 pm

I Think the Resistance 2 Beta Got Out Early And They Stopped It So No One Else Could Download It.

Jezer29 said:

October 16th, 2:08 pm

I hope there are some surprises.. I would like to see the increment of $1 added to the add fund option.. Cant you guys make that happen please?

I deleted my socom download because I tought that the file was corrupted. Thank you for your quick advice Sony. Now I’ll spend 3 more hours to re-download the game.

ruffneckc said:

October 16th, 2:10 pm

That’s fine. Thanks for the update. For a free service, it sure is dependable most of the time.

Baked said:

October 16th, 2:10 pm

Oh good, at least I know it’s not my system. Had me worried for a min there ’cause my last PS3’s network died and I didn’t want a deja vu. I’ll check back later tonight.

RustInPeace13 said:

October 16th, 2:11 pm

I actually just linkied my PSP with my PSN account around 12 pm EST, and the store was up. Now its about 5:10 pm and its still down. Hope its for HOME, but i have the feeling that HOME itself won’t be around untill mid November… ::Sigh:: Wasn’t it supposed to be coming out around now, according to reports about a month ago? I do understand, though, that things need perfecting and DO get pushed back… Oh well. Just let there be some GOOD stuff in the store when its back up!

diablo103 said:

October 16th, 2:12 pm

can u tell us as to why its down?

tezasaurus said:

October 16th, 2:12 pm

Must be SOCOM… damn thing can barely run with the current number of users, and I know a ton of people that were planning on getting the downloadable version. Couple that with Home and R2 invites/downloads, and it’s a recipe for server trouble.

Sony should start seriously OVER-estimating network demand. Or at the very least space out service-crashers like the R2 beta and SOCOM a bit more.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to tell us, Patrick. We do appreciate being kept in the loop, even if it’s the outer fringe of it :)

Thanks for the notification. Strange as it may seem, I’m actually glad to hear this, ’cause it tells me that you guys actually care if something’s not working right and are actively working to fix it. Thanks. :D

Home isn’t coming until 2010

venusinferns said:

October 16th, 2:14 pm

That sucks… looks like I can’t check what’s new.. oh wait — I can’t anyways since my PS3 was ruined with the v2.43 update…

In other words, they broke something and have no idea what it is.

kapsimt said:

October 16th, 2:20 pm

it doesnt really make sense because some of my freinds apparently are still able to access the playstaion store. This error only happened to me after the update 2.50. I heard that the update was supposed to fix this problem since this occured to some people on the 14th

mysongska said:

October 16th, 2:22 pm

if you guys need something to pass the time… high velocity bowling 1.20 update is now live!

Modus Operandi said:

October 16th, 2:22 pm

Thanks for the heads up Jeff.

But it had to occur when I was about to enter my Resistance 2 Beta code… :(

KyserTheHun said:

October 16th, 2:22 pm

Meh. No rush.

shystie1 said:

October 16th, 2:23 pm

AHHHHHHHHHHHH! as Charlie Brown would say while falling on his butt after Lucy would take the football away from him at the last moment.

I just got my Resistance 2 beta code.

BigOLBallz said:

October 16th, 2:23 pm

I know what the heck it is , SOCOM!!!!!!SOCOM screwed everything up, I got to play it a little bit, I logged off to go do something , came back and it was screwed, [DELETED] Sony, come on folks lets get it together, and satisfy the horde. THanX

RustInPeace13 said:

October 16th, 2:23 pm

@ 48 I think you’re right, Gunwing. Possibly an overflow of people globaly using the PSN all at once for the new updates might have something to do with the server being down.

PS3Diablo said:

October 16th, 2:25 pm

Damn, I was going crazy trying different stuff with my wireless router, I was sure it was a problem with my internet connection. Oh well, there went about 45 minutes of my life ! At least it’s confirmed though, it’s nice to get feedback like this ! Can’t wait for the update.

Trat said:

October 16th, 2:26 pm

Good that you took it down…

I bet poster number One is a SOCOM Fan as am I. My friend has no net as of today until the weekend and has to wait. How about a hook up for the three of us?

October 16th, 2:28 pm

Thanks for postings this, and not keeping everyone wondering what’s going on… lol.

It’s not home. It’s “unscheduled”. Probably was some random problem they have a fix.
