Playstation Network is Down for a Day or Two

By  |  Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 11:59 am

Sony’s Playstation Network is down, and it may not come back up for a couple of days, according to the official Playstation Blog.

“While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we’re able to get the service completely back up and running,” Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold wrote.

Europe’s Playstation blog previously said the company was investigating “the possibility of targeted behavior by an outside party,” but that message has since been removed. Hacking group Anonymous, which attacked Sony’s servers earlier this month, claims no involvement.

Talk about terrible timing. This week saw the launch of Mortal Kombat, Portal 2 and SOCOM 4, all of which have an online component. SOCOM 4 is a Playstation 3 exclusive geared mainly towards online play, and includes big incentives to buy the game new. In addition to disabling online play, the PSN outage affects the Qriocity music service, Netflix, and any other service requiring a PSN login.

Still, this isn’t quite as severe as the PSN problems that occurred in March 2010, when a leap year issue caused some users to lose data just by turning on their consoles. Sony didn’t relay that message to its customers until 16 hours after the first reports emerged.

[UPDATE: Sony says that the outage–still ongoing–is due to it taking down the network after a security breach.]

[UPDATE 2: Still no end in sight. Sony now says it’s rebuilding the network for added security.]

[UPDATE 3: Sony now says all users’ personal information was compromised, and credit cards may have been compromised as well. More details here.]

    WTF DO U MEAN BY Your comment must be approved by the site admins before it will appear publicly. U WANT A FIGHT?

  2. Erbicus Says:

    Calm down tough guy, You must have a pretty lame life if your that angry over not being able to use the ps3 for a day or too. Got nothing else to do? Try some self discovery and realization on who you choose to be and realize how pathetic and weak you are to this life.

  3. Rain Says:

    Dude, he's not talking about the video games. he's talking about this site. Smart.

  4. Kendrick Dawson Says:

    He's pissed because they're implying censorship upon his comment I assume. Seems to me you're the one that needs to calm down.

    and your a dick

  7. coletrain Says:

    yea you stupid faggot

  8. Horrorchicken Says:

    I sure do hope this isn't a DDoS attack by Anonymous…

    Even though Sony is a major corporation, you still don't want to cross Anonymous.

  9. Dave Says:

    sadly, it is

  10. greg Says:

    the reports are the Anonymous hasnt claimed this to be their work

  11. graham Says:

    Sony has so may powerful anti-attack methods, it could repel anonymous's worst attacks in a week. Sony is backed also by microsoft, which would rape anonymous.

  12. Jimmy Says:

    Who is Anonymous? I see comments on quizzes that were posted by "Anonymous." Is that him? He leaves like 20 comments.

  15. Epitrochoid Says:

    I love how its says “the possibility of targeted behavior by an outside party"…listen they messed up big and now its someone else fault? This is purely Sony's fault. The fact that they are blaming someone else is childish.

  16. aaron Says:

    No really it is from an outside source.. there is an open network hack that ppl have been using to freeze up the network and possibly the ps3 itself. Major problems with online games that track stats as a dc for u is a lose and the other side gets a victory if u dc.

  17. dolemite Says:

    When a hacker comes into your computer one day and wrecks up your sh*t I'd like to see how quick you say its your fault.

    Anyway, I hope Sony gets this fixed quick.

  18. Beau Woodcock Says:

    So your automatically assuming they did it based off of what information? Prove any hacker is responsible, and it wasnt one of the idiots at Sony tripping over a cord.

  19. C N Says:

    because "tripping over a cord" takes about 5 seconds to fix. The proof is in the situation. In experience with system administration and maintenance, both microsoft and sony get their worst problems sorted out after less than a day. If the projected time is between 1-2 days it can easily be inferred that whatever happened is pretty big and out of the norm.

  20. domplol Says:

    i smell a hacker

  21. pie Says:

    how can u prove it wasnt a hacker

  22. dsdd Says:

    Actually…they have found that it is someones fault at this point. They just haven't pinpointed who it is. Someone caused a major virus. It's not Sony's fault in any way….X-Box lover.

  23. Epitrochoid isnerdy Says:

    bro, ur a nerd. how did they mess up again? get a life nerdy

  24. bob Says:

    i just got black ops

  25. Raiyen22 Says:

    Don't worry that game sucks, yeah I said it, you want to fight about it, see me in Killzone when the network gets back up later this week lol and that's my screen name for anyone who wants some

  26. jillian Says:

    love how i finally decide to give in and buy the playstation plus and now the dam networks down for maintence gotta love my bad timing

  27. Jon Says:

    lol.. PSN makes me angry to

  28. Rommel Says:

    +1 same here

  29. MiantCub Says:

    I am NEVER getting playstation plus. It's insanity, It's extortion, it's just another way to squeeze the money out of their customers. If you agree to their crap, you're giving them your balls, and I prefer to keep mine, thank you.

  30. Jimmy Says:

    You think YOU have bad timing? I kept having trouble connecting to the server, and it turned out that WHENEVER I went on, THAT'S when they had server problems.

  31. pissed off aagain Says:

    Hell with Playstation Network.I'm going back to xbox live. The PS3 makes a better door stop anyway.

  32. C N Says:

    have fun paying $60 a year for nearly the same product. I'll wait 2 days and save 60 bucks.

  33. JrH Says:

    xbox's are actually better though, yeah ok it costs more in the long run, but the game play is better and at least you dont have to play with 10 year olds, because its free on the playstation

  34. Ugh Says:

    No one cares about your opinion at the moment. Stop trashing other systems because YOU like something else. This isn't about which system is best, and your randomly bringing it into topic anyway.

  35. james Says:

    ok and your gay and like it in your mouth

  36. michael Says:


  37. funakaiwa Says:

    I thought xbox's overheated more than ps3's? and the red rings….I have an old 20 gig I've had since the ps3 launch and it's never had an issue. It doesn't matter anyway they are the same. It's all a matter of personal preference really. I'm not gonna bash 360 I just personally don't like it (I had one, never played it).

  38. Guy Loves ps3 Says:

    Have fun with your crappy product!

  39. PS3 SUCKS Says:

    ps3 really sucks, this always getting annoyed might just buy an xbox.Done:)

  40. Billy Says:

    Yes, that way you have to pay for DC Universe subscription AND the xbox live one.

  41. batman619 Says:

  43. PS3 SUCKS is gay Says:

  44. james Says:

    Cry cry, this has happended twice boo hoo 🙁 play a single player game and stop bitching.

  45. Bob Says:

    it always happens?
    because this is the first time ive ever seen it happen.
    just because it happens once in a long time, doesnt mean you should switch.

    but if you really want to, go ahead, pay to play online and worry about red ring.

  46. DTM Says:

    it's going to be fixed soon anyway, PS3 is far better then xbox anyday of the week!
    PS3 has a Blue ray player, free online, and internet browser. what does the xbox have…red ring of death, pay for online. thats it. PS3>Xbox

  47. RAZoR Says:

    get over it, twice it happened, its freeeeeeeeee who cares

  48. recklezz_kitty Says:

  49. @millerjustinj Says:

  50. you guys are loners Says:

    The best thing of all ……… nothing. Anyway you will have to pay for xbox live, PSN will be back in a couple of days big deal! you loners get a life.

  51. tobeastforthis Says:

    why are you telling people to get a life if you are on this blog responding.

  52. the schoolboy Says:

    I agree–take a break from games for a day or two–it will be good for you

  53. Bob Says:

    i agree with this.

    they should definitely give short extensions to paid service subscribers such as Qriocity andPS Plus everytime this occurs.

  68. PS3 4 noobs only Says:


    Thats why I play PC games ..what is better than free games , excellent resolution and no hassle : )

    I will sell my PS3 sh!t because it doesn't worth it . and if u really into consoles XboX is waaaay better


  69. Luke Jarvis Says:

    Your best bet would probably be to sell your ps3, and invest your money from that into an elementary school level english program.

  70. Ron Says:

    I agree with Luke, luckily he can spell PC, LOL!

  71. OK. Says:

    you still have to pay for the disk to download the game and some games like World of Warcraft require a monthly payment or something. unless you play solitaire or something.

  89. dance Says:

    no big deal….xbox sucks and waiting a day or two is nothing

  91. NUMNUTS2 Says:


  92. Endgame Says:

    How does taking away my ability to play games punish Sony? This is a cowardly act Anonymous.

  93. GHOST Says:

    Exactly what the hell were they thinking!.

  94. Drex Says:

    It wasn't anonymous as 'they' claim they have nothing to do with this. Most likely it is sony's response to security flaws in their system and they are taking steps to reinforce it. Did any of you guys forget there was sort of an earthquake and tsunami and fires and obama that happened in japan? Hmm, I wonder if that has anything to do with the telecommunication infrastructure out there whatsoever.

    Besides, anonymous aren't even hackers. Anyone can download a program with runs a repeating ddos attack. Just because some retard gets a program to do this and enters in an ip address isnt hacking. It is ping spamming. Don't give credit where none is due. Not to mention most of the 'anonymous' babies won't be doing stuff like that anymore as it is illegal and the authorities have been arresting morons that are doing this sort of stupid annoying teenage stuff. Do a google search on the wikileaks anonymous arrests. All of them deserve a nice long stretch in jail. Fracking idiots.

    i cant do solo zombies anymore, its driving me nuts.. what a great time to be off from work

  112. Ron Says:

    Yep, Anonymous has gotten to them. It is a shame that a group like Anonymous would do something out of spite to try and affect PSN but they make us suffer! They claim Sony is hurting the "innocent". Are we not the true innocent?? I paid good money for my PS3 and should be able to use it when I want to, not when Anonymous deems it fit for me to play it. They are lame and I hope the government takes them down! Just know EVERYONE gets caught eventually! Yes I will wait for PSN to come back up. I agree with the copyright act and GeoHot should be sued. He would not want anyone manipulating an invention that he took time to come up with and had a patent for!

    No disrespect to xbox fans but I tried xbox 360 brand new before ps3 and a week later I had the red light.exchanged and 2 months later same thing.bought ps3 next and it's still running like I can easily wait a day or two to play online for "free" again.yeah it sucks but so does having a $300 or more system just stop working for no reason when it's made by a billionaire!get my point??

  117. qragdifjnfh Says:

    thats what i say, the same thing happened to me…i went through 4 360s in under a year and i decided to buy a ps3 and its been running strong for a few years with no problems whatsoever.

  118. JAX Says:

  120. WOFFFF Says:

    …Where is my UNCHARTED 2 ?……..come on PSN, get it together!!!!!

  121. @joshlovespara Says:

    Look, we're going to have to wait, it's not like we're never ever going to play with the people we've met online ever again and never play the games ever again, it's free, unlike xbox which you have to pay for which is a load of rubbish in MY opinion, people with PS+ are moaning because they paid for that, you pay for content, not for service, don't complain, it WILL be back up, don't panic.. go outside.

  122. mckenzie Says:

    im pisted i wanted to black ops so i can wipe ur butts with my AK47 DAMMMMMMMMM u whp ever did this to the ps3. like really and its spring break DAM DAM DAM DAM DAM U

  123. Gage Says:

  124. @joshlovespara Says:

    It WILL be back up, DON'T panic. seriously.

  125. rapp Says:

    So wtf happend? why is PSN down anyway? why dont they just turn it back on? im bored i bought Crysis 2 to play and its the dumbest damn game i ever played and was gonna play some cod and BAM network down.

  126. Black opppps Says:

    becausee…read the article!

  127. Chad Cooper Says:

    This is ridiculous! We all suffer from some hackers trying to take revenge, probably fan boys who got too pissed off at COD. My day off and I get up to PsN not working! I don’t know why I switched to ps3, in two months I had more problems with my new ps3 slim, and the network than in 2 years with the xbox, and xbox live. Not to be choosing sides, both systems are good, each with flaws and benefits, but sony better get their act together, because no one is happy, and there have been many other incidents that I have heard about in the past. O well technology now a days.

  137. GongeKing Says:

    sony CAN protect themselves against this, but some bean counter at sony didnt want to spring for the right protection, so ANONYMUS is probably the company who is pissed because they lost a sale and hacked their sh*@! just a thought.

  138. James Says:

    This can't suck anymore….I have a ps3 themed teen night with no way to sign in…AND NO i CAN'T DO SOMETHING ELSE. I tore my acl and cod blck ops is my salvation until I can work again. The kids are furious about teen night and now we are trying to get a throwback video game theme with n64 and nes altogether in one day! Wish me luck!

Enjoy the couple days because when it comes back up I am going to be so angry with this situation that I am going to take it out on the NOOBS that play Black Ops.

    yeah add me on ps3 Derric_Gulay lets see iff you can own me

  171. RyGuy Says:

    Virus attack spreading out of control I bet. To sum it up, first thing you do with a network is take it offline to assess damage, diagnose servers & try and get those viruses off before bringing em back online. Or it could be they underestimated online activity from new releases' online activity. Remember COD MW2 network crash? Madden seems to crash EA yearly too, on its release date. Ugh…oooh, what's that thing? Oh a book? Left to right? Top to bottom? Guess I'll give that a try meantime haha

  179. Chris Says:

    "In addition to disabling online play, the PSN outage affects the Qriocity music service, Netflix, and any other service requiring a PSN login."

    yeah, and the reason why these services require a PSN login in the first place? And honestly, how long would the update take that would allow these services to work *without* the PSN login. 10 minutes? 15, tops? just comment out the code requiring the PSN login as it ethically should have been in the first place you paranoid nazi's.

  183. J_L_ Says:

    equal my ass ps3 wins ne day lol

  184. Chris Says:

    I don't understand why people say xbox is better. Ps3 can do so much more than the xbox can. You can upload movies, pics, and music straight to the ps3. The xbox won't let you upload movies onto the hardrive unless you buy them from them. Plus the ps3 has it's own web browser and ps home….so tell me how in the world xbox can be better?

  185. LegitxWarrior17 Says:

    This is really annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM going back to xbox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least there they control their corporation…..

  186. Joel Says:

    wish i would have had some warning from playstation i set my ps3 to factory settings lastnight hoping it would fix it when i didnt and i googled it, then saw it was down then i spent the next three hours trying to reset all my controllers, bluetooth, game and movie settings and passwords thanx playstation for the heads up ….NOT I sux I like you so much I need my battlefield fix tho, i almost went to walmart to get bfbc2 for pc as a temporary solution but im lazt so ill wait

  187. Jeremy Says:

    That is your own fault for not doing research before hand. It's not Sony's job to hold your hand. Sony doesn't have to compensate you anything because you don't pay to play online games, PS plus is not an online service, it just gives you free stuff and discounts. People always want money for nothing.

    As for the x-box fanboys, before you starting throwing dirt on the PS3, remember that you pay for XBL and XBL does down too. XBL went down for 2 whole weeks once.

    Last thing I need to say is those sticking up for the hackers, you are losers like they are. When you create your PSN account you accept their terms of use. If you violate the agreement, they have a RIGHT to go after you. So stop saying Sony is violating your right,s you are violating theirs. Companies have the right to protect themselves from people like this.

  188. ambersfool77 Says:

    I agree. I bought a PS3 and it did eventually get the YLOD. I paid Sony their fee and it was replaced with a refurbished system. I also bought a XBOX 360 and it did eventually get the RROD. Microsoft got their fee and I got another refurbished system. So who should I bash? I think I'll go after the game producers that make games I want exclusive to a particular system. I hate you guys. P.S. Thank God the Wii sucks. I don't wanna spend anymore money on my gaming needs.

  190. truth Says:

    so the playstation network is down for a day or two big woop. four words for you "red ring of death" argument won goodnight

  191. WOFFFF Says:

    OK…LISTEN !!!!!! NETFLIX WORKS…..just sign in once you go to it and then back out———it will play So says the WOFFFF

  192. David Says:

    Thats why you buy both xbox and a playstation so when one goes down you have a back up

  193. omsiN_ Says:

    Such is life. These things happen. I personally, am sick of people whining. Its a free ‘service’ as it should be. With the money we spend on consoles, games, our internet providers and misc. IT SHOULD BE FREE, only an idiot would pay microsoft to play online. So to everyone who cries about a few days down time on their free online service from Sony… Join the other fools on xbox. Thats less whiners i have to listen to online when Sony resolves the issue. To Sony; Thanks for your services and keep up the hard work. No complaints here. Take your time, let the whiners pick up a book or even a bottle of acne treatment for a change.

    why………………………the…………..FUUCK!! would u do it on SPRING BREAK!!!!!……daaayum it!

  195. PSN outage, the truth Says:

    I talked with a customer service rep in billing yesterday and she told me my credit card stored information was fine and I quickly asked why it was hard to get logged in or make any purchases once I did get logged in, and she said (and probably got in trouble for telling me) that PSN starting with a new update to the PSN store, was revamping their entire user interface, so it could handle faster online multiplayer games and other media. In other words there is no attack, just a major update in the works!!!!

  196. Karina Says:

    Did she say when it might be back on?

  197. Bill Says:

    god forbid people have to pry themselves away from a game console and go outside for a day or two.

  198. Nalarion Says:

    God forbid you be inside commenting on this about people not going outside for a day or two, obviously the fact you found this, means you were looking into the fact PSN is down

    I own both 360 and ps3 and I hope anon gets both parties. could care less. the purpose is pure and clear. make everyone liable for their greed. some times to win the war you have to take out some innocent people. well we are all innocent and there cause is higher than your need to play your $70 video game. here is an idea (and i am gonna do this too) go outside. celebrate the upcoming holiday, if you are not religious, go ruin someone's holiday. do something else. we live in a wonderful world where we have psn and xboxlive, there is a whole world out there virtual or real…..abuse it. by monday, you can set your fat ass back on the couch like myself and go back to playing mortal kombat. anon did not take your freedom,( if they are responsible), they are only trying to do what you, as a uneducated consumer who has dispensable income or just wont pay your phone bill, does not have the knowledge or the nuts to do. Rock the corp. boat. Hate me love me but at least believe me…….. we will all be on in due time and maybe…….just maybe, this will be for the better.

  210. Lucas Bjerg Frandsen Says:

    this is very serously. playstaionnetwork i unhackable, but they did it!

  211. Pissed Off Says:

    Sony should be embarrassed by the way they're dealing with this issue. When you call customer service you get a message saying that "the network is down and should bwe back up shortly". Same message for the past 3 days. At least they removed that stupid error code when you try to log in… now it says they're undergoing maintenence, Do they really think we're that stupid???

  212. J_L_ Says:

    um ur stupid if uve been down 3 days cuz its only been down 1

  213. RushTarget Says:

    Damn I turned on both my PS3 and Xbox. Xbox Live was a go with COD and PS3 said error 87016ASSWIPE!! I guess I am forced to play with my Xbox 360 fam untill Sony plugs back up the network noobz! Its Ok need to get my rating up on Xbox anywayz..peace in love and games..LOL!

    Thanks i never wouldve guessed…

  219. ILikeYourBallz8==D Says:

    Let me tell it to you. i work at the PS3 network and i control what happens and the process to fix it, and this will probably take until sunday, where people won't even play because its easter and this is because ps3 hates people. So don't expect the server to be up until sunday peeps (easter joke hahaha im so funny).

  221. tko Says:

    Hey, here's an idea. Why don't you people GO OUTSIDE. READ A BOOK. Emerge from your caves and actually experience life. Jesus, one or two days without the PSN and you'd think the world were ending.

  222. JmcanHlloKtty Says:

    I must agree with you.

  226. lxS0faKiNg_h00dxl Says:

    Someday, we will get a pair down low and start cutting off the hands of these hackers. A slap on the wrist does nothing to deter this. Loosing a hand will make some think twice about hacking sites, plus they will be easily identified in public for us to take some personal justice out on their punk xxx. If they want to do soemthing good with their hacking skillz, go hack some terrorits websites.

  227. Drew Says:

  228. J.C Says:

    And what the Hell this had to happen in SPRING BREAK!?

  229. Dave Says:

    Heres whats goin on. I work for PSN so i'll tell u the whole story. Hackers hacked Playstation Network so that nobody would be able to log in. If you notice, PSN has gotten it under control and we might be able to get it up and running again. In the past day, when u attempted to log in, it said An Error Has Occured, but today it says Playstation Network is under maintenance. We have it under control and we will try to get it running today. We are sorry for any inconvience.

  241. David Says:

    I think that they should have to compensate all of psn users put like 20 dollars into each account for being arrogant to others and blaming it on other people when it is their fault

  242. choppedupbabies Says:

    i will compensate you for 20 if you get on your knees, homo.

  243. getalife Says:

    All of you that are sooo pissed about psn being down…. have you nothing better to do? Go out and get some fresh air and socialize with real people for a change. I love playing online too and sure, I miss it when I want to play and can't, but seriously… there are worse things in life than not being able to sign into psn…. xbox has just as many if not more problems, so don't get your panties in a knot, it'll be back up so you can shut yourself inside for the next decade.

    look u guys, dont worry about it, u dont need to buy a crapy xbox because of this, sony is doin there best at getting psn back up and working, no doubt when it is back up it will be quicker, mainly because there making psn more bullet proof, so if i was you i would go out and enjoy the easter holidays while you still have it. Just grab some patience, and also, i just have to clear this up, ps3 will never fry or overheat aslong as the fan is still workin, thats why the slimline ps3 was delayed, because sony put it in a steam room and left it on for three days strait and was still working like a queen. Also i havent turn my ps3 off for over a mounth doin b spec endurence racis on gt5 while i sleep and go to school. Now seriously ? Do you think the xbox will keep up wih that? Do you think sony will let a system like that be taken over by some american nerds what still wear fullface braces even though there 24?

  311. Yeeaaah, Says:

    You know what, its no big deal. Its down for a few days, its not like the world is going to end.
    So quit yer bitchin and find something else to do besides cry about PSN being down.

  312. David Says:

    Losing PSN is just about as worse as losing the internet if not any worse. BUT, i know for fact that services such as NETFLIX are not down for the ps3 myself have had nothing else to do but watch movies and shows all day NETFLIX doenot require to be connected to PSN to operateit just takes time to start up. i found it would automaticly try sighning you in ofcorse it wont sign you in, so you tap O?back and repeat if it occures and soon enough you'll be sighne into your Netflix. im not certain about other services but it's worth a try.

    Take a break from online gaming for a while… will help your skills, your health, and your emotional levels, which by the way are a bit out of order if they are being shackled by the PSN being down. We have no qualms about our actions, even though it may affect fellow anonymous or supporters… we hope they understand the bigger picture.

  346. Portal2Rocks Says:

    There is a rather large coincidence between the public release of the Steam link on the PSN (April 19th Portal 2 released allowing PSN users to play online with PC/Mac users) and the beginning of the PSN downtime (April 20th). Does it seem possible that this new feature of PSN which probably involved the addition of a firewall hole to allow the Steam network in might have also let something undesirable in? Does anyone see something there?

    so its been down since late wednesday night. when the hell is it going to be back up? why is it taking sony almost an entire week to fix this? and the fact that they are only talking about giving playstation plus members something for all this is b.s. i think sony needs to give every ps3 gamer some type of playstation points to use at the ps store once this is all fixed. may have to go back to the xbox…

    This is not a very common thought but I am pretty sure that Sony's PlayStation's servers are in Sanfransico California. That is what I was thinking.

  381. ONEGRUMPS Says:

    On Monday, the Japanese electronics giant said it is keeping its PlayStation Network videogame service offline indefinitely following a hacking attack it now says may have compromised user’s information.

    To ensure the network’s integrity, Sony said it is currently rebuilding the service, which connects more than 75 million PlayStation customers over the Internet, letting them play videogames and chat together. “This is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly,” Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold said in a blog post.

    Sony is still investigating the “external intrusion” that forced the electronics giant to shut down its network last Wednesday. In an email, the company also said it is also trying to figure out if any personal information, such as credit card numbers, may have been compromised in the attack.

    wasnt to impressed with socom 4 why i see it socom days are long behind us now .the more new they put in to it the worse it is . and if sony ever gets back up and running i'lll be on confrontation .hope all the hackers and cheaters would had moved on to socom 4 by then lol

  387. Fools Says:

    Karma hits Sony and the sony fanboys that always took sony side in the hack trials. You guys are ignorant and still follow sony after they haven’t secured your personal details,etc..yes blame the hackers you fools.

    Enjoy the downtime, you deserve it.

  388. Gato Barbieri Says:

    In another type of business, Sony would have to make some restitution. However, there are no SLAs. They protected themselves in the rehashing of their license agreement for product and services. They are too smart…well, thought they were smart. Why wouldn't you protect the personal data of millions of users? An ungodly amount of people bought Playstation Plus in March more than ever before. And puff!!!!

  389. WOFFFF Says:

    I am not entirely convinced of Sony's actions is for the best. they really do abuse their customers and when they get the public back-lash for it……they offer cheap bribes !!!…..hmmm

  394. ty sweet Says:

    I can deal with it being down for 2 or 3 days and everyone saying get a life, Yeah, i get that. Down for a few days, no big deal… down for a week, annoying but no big deal… 2 weeks and its time to make something happen. This is BS and I am soo over everyone blaming everyone else. Look, find out who anonymous is and put them in jail, along with every other hacker b/c anyone who hacks is just pathetic, stop blaming sony… it wasnt their fault, they didnt hack their own network. SONY, get it fixed. A bunch of people are already jumping ship, Look at xbox stock! Come on, Dont let me down. Besides Sony has a free network to play on, if ya want to hack something, take down xbox.

  395. WOFFFF Says:

    They can't….or won't hack Xbox, their system is to strong , being that the sponsor is Microsoft. I am a PSN…..DAMMIT ….I…AM ….A…. PSN !!!!…….come on Sony—-let's do this thing……too long on my ADD & OCD is reaking HAVOC in my community—–cars are crashing, bldg's on fire, children hungry……this is what it has come to !!!!…..for I am the WOFFFF……I am PSN

  399. Ihatenubs Says:

    Really. PSN has not been done since January nub…

  400. Epitrochoid Says:

    Think with your head people…

    First of all, on the first day it was a possible outside attack. Then with out any prof of this "possible attack" happening, YOU ALL feed that same "possible attack" to SONY by simply agreeing with it and gave them an excuse to use of why the system failed. Now, a lot of people are scared of their personal information, credit cards and such hacked, taken away and used. (with out any proof of this still to this date…and its been 2 weeks!!) What a waste you all are. I dont understand why anyone in the world would kill the network that they use…Hacking to cheat is one thing but killing the network it and not be able to hack anymore doesnt make sense.

    Second, let me just say that everything is man made here. Other than natural things of course (DNA/RNA, the way of life…etc). All the technology, all the power, the monitor you have to read this post, the clothes you have on, the bed you use so you can go to sleep comfortable and sometimes under AC, to wake up the next day to see if PSN is back on, even the language you speak!…I mean EVERYTHING is man made. Im not sure if you ever notice this but…everything that is made by man doesnt really last. Your car breaks down, the lights go out, red lights on XBOX and PS3, PlayStation Network goes out…etc. This is basic human flaw. Personally I dont think anyone "hacked" the network. There is other host servers that went out at the same time. I believe amazon when out and along with a few others. For the guys that want proof of it not been a hacker targeting SONY..

    So here is the deal, the server went out….they are making a new one and making it available when they are done….end of story. Dont like it? Get a different system. Other wise just wait for it. This doesnt make the PS3 a bad system. It doesnt make XBOX better. I have a Wii and I play 007 (which sucks in comparison to Modern Warfare 2) but either way I get "migrating host" or "host quitting game" then it boots me out. Same thing with my PS3 when playing MW2. To say its some hackers did it sounds ridiculous. Like a fish getting rid of the ocean water so no fish can swim. Doesnt make sense to me.

    So if you dont like whats going on complaining about it and posting ignorant comments isnt doing anything to get it back. Even posting comment like "All I can say is …I am trading my ps3 in for the next sucker that trusts SONY" – by WOFFFF on paige 12. Completely pointless. Dont make an asshat (google it) out of your self.

    For instance "Epitrochoid isnerdy"……Nice name…I bet you dont even know what that is. Then "isnerdy" after wards….lol. You are the exact definition of an asshat.

  401. WOFFFF Says:

    ….Ummm…..Thanks…..HOWWWWLLLLLL……btw Epicurus , thanks…..I know why I just made another good trade on E-Trade…..funny how just a $1500 investment in the "other" system has now grown….my investment after just one day = $1770……not shabby……not shabby at all….can't wait till Monday when the market re-opens……btw , my asshat is getting better and better all the time……..I am a PSN,….and yes I will wait…..but until then —I will be playing that "other" system laughing all the way to the bank with my beautiful asshat !!!!

I'm going thru withdrawls not being able to play online with my fellow zombie slayers. How long can this all take? I sure hope when and if they do come back online they have something for us who have been patient and also had our info comprised. Somebody has my cc number now? I smell a lawsuit. Down with ps3 and it times to go xbox live!! See you all there.

  410. WOFFFF Says:

    ….It's not nice outside….St. Louis has been rainy for weeks now…..wish I had a reliable network !!!!!

  411. Ps3 is terrible. Says:

    um.. xbox is better because our network doesnt get hacked and shut down for days. ps3 sucks, it always has, and it always will. face it the ps3 is a dvd player with blu ray. xbox is for gaming.

  412. Noah Says:

    HahaHahahaha!!ps3 servers got hacked,it's may10 and the servers still are not up!!Sony keeps this up and there may be no hope for you guys after all!you might as well switch to xbox.why do you think that we pay yearly.Microsoft provides a great server connection.Ps3 sucks anyways.the features are not good anyways. Why would I need enter net on my console when i can whip out my iPad or iPhone and browse safari and stay in the are the same as long as you can see you don't need to care what graphics are better. And please! Why in the HE'LL do you need a 10 pound blue ray player to match the other 10 pounds the original console weights.pointless. SWITCH TO XBOX!!!!!So Mch better!!
