PlayStation.Blog Maintenance Today

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

UPDATE: aaaaaaaaand we’re back. I really expected that to take longer. We’ve now increased our server capacity, which will allow us to continue to grow and implement new features to the blog. We’ll let you know what they are when we roll them out.

In case you missed it last week, Capcom’s John D. broke the Blog. Steaming pile of wreckage, it was.

So today, we’re adding another server. Truthfully, we had planned to do that anyway. I think Mr. Diamonon wants to take credit – and since they’re adding Trophies to Bionic Commando: Rearmed, I’ll let him do so.

Either way, if you try to log on to the Blog from about 2-3pm (Pacific) today and it doesn’t work, it doesn’t mean your internet is broken. Necessarily.

Note: the PSN is unaffected by this maintenance window.

Add Your Own

So what did you think about those PS Cloud rumors Jeff?

LokeSTL said:

June 23rd, 1:40 pm

Good idea! Thanks for the heads up. Any word on when we should expect that BC:R patch? Even an estimate would be nice. Thanks Jeff. :-)

Jeff, could this mean Firmware update 2.80 will integrate with the PlayStation Blog :P

No kidding, is it true about Firmware update 2.80?

EvoAnubis said:

June 23rd, 2:11 pm

LOL…you know John; he lives to break the Blog. You guys are going to need servers worthy of the Batcave to stop him from doing it again.

June 23rd, 2:18 pm

Thanks for the warning, even though it only took mere minutes to pull off. Now you have enough server space to handle 4000 comments!

In random tandem Jeff, you really should remember to give us a heads up on when those BC:R trophies are going up. I’d love to earn me some.

@18 Julioakapaco01
Firmware updates have nothing to do with the blog update. Unless Jeff and the gang pull a fast one on us.

TubaDude49 said:

June 23rd, 2:19 pm

Hey Jeff,my E3 Swhag Bag still hasn’t shown up yet. Is there any way I can track it?

TubaDude49 said:

June 23rd, 2:21 pm

Oh, also do you know pricing and date for WipEout HD Fury? Thanks.

Delriach said:

June 23rd, 2:22 pm

DeviantBoi said:

June 23rd, 2:25 pm

Jeff, any chance of putting up SingStar updates on the blog?


June 23rd, 2:25 pm

STMaraj said:

June 23rd, 2:27 pm

Jeff, why didn’t you answer comment #6? You totally skipped it. That’s mean.

EvoAnubis said:

June 23rd, 2:31 pm

Why should Jeff waste his time answering a question that Eric is going to address in a later post? Time management, kids; google it.

PirateThom said:

John is awesome. Blog breaker!


June 23rd, 2:44 pm

ProwlingFox said:

June 23rd, 2:55 pm

So Jeff, did you give John D. a stern talking to about effing with the Blog? ;)

decimalator said:

June 23rd, 3:02 pm

Welcome back to the tubes! Now with 25% more pr0n!

Anything especially exciting coming to the PS.Blog soon? Ponies perhaps?

joseph2411 said:

June 23rd, 3:04 pm

Why do i have the feeling that this PS Blog maintenance is all because John D.? Well we may expect him to break his own record of posts here at the blog now that it has more server capacity.

“We’ve now increased our server capacity, which will allow us to continue to grow and implement new features to the blog.”

More community features on the PS Blog? You know like let us access our PSN friends and see what they’ve been posting around the blog (:

Maguss said:

DonnyG said:

June 23rd, 3:10 pm

Man in the box get back in that box!

EvoAnubis said:

June 23rd, 3:15 pm

Oh, and I’m still waiting for the PSP-compatible PlayStation.Blog, Jeff. Please tell me that’s coming sooner rather than later.

tearsofash said:

June 23rd, 3:16 pm

So this means we’ll have to work even harder to break the blog?

Challenge accepted.

Well, as much as one person logging in helps. =\

sweepyx said:

June 23rd, 3:21 pm

Can yoou tell John D to give me my Code for megaman 9?!?!?

iComet said:

June 23rd, 3:29 pm

Can this mean 2.80 firmware with cross-game voice chat coming tomorrow?!
I hope so :)
Please, Sony, don’t disappoint again…

EvoAnubis said:

June 23rd, 3:31 pm

Can you give us a hint? A cryptic hint at the next new feature you plan to role out to us PS.Blog readers?

juanpipe said:

June 23rd, 4:23 pm

Jeff, one thing:

How do I know that you don’t know about the existence of PlayStation Cloud? Just kidding, but when are we getting some Beatles: Rock Band interviews, trailers, or gameplay?
