PlayStation Network Regular Scheduled Maintenance

91 0

The PlayStation Network will undergo maintenance tonight, October 14. Maintenance is expected to start at 11pm Pacific and could last for several hours. During this time, some users won’t be able to access the PlayStation Store or account management, and may encounter some difficulty while signing in to PSN.

Stay tuned to the PlayStation Twitter feed for updates and a notice when the PSN is fully back online.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

  • god i would love to be able to change my freakin ID! have wanted that feature for sooo long. just dont wanna lose my trophies and such.

  • would love to be able to change my ID!

  • Seems to be a weekly habit on PSN now. Please find a better way to update your store Sony so I don’t get booted from the Demons Souls server again….thanks.

  • is this the reason why i cant log in to my PSN? i’m having the error (8002A548)? and this is the first time it happend and thats why im pretty annoyed right now because i dont know what to do and i felt a bit of relief when i saw this post but they should announce this on PSN itself because i never look at blogs, they should send noticed for all gamers.

  • atleast give some noticed where we can actually received your noticed like the PSN or WHAT’S NEW that we cant access our accounts. thanks for the heads up.

  • this is retarded, I stayed up for like an hour trying to figure out what the hell, why can’t I sign in. it gave me a bunch of numbers and letters like A800something and it said an error occured, well at least have it in big bold letters, MAINTENANCE IMMINENT!!! lol, well tonight sucked hurry up with it I WANNA PLAY!!!

  • Maintenance: an awkward span of time in RL for gamers everywhere.

  • I just hope that These psp games come out onto the ps store because they are the only things holding me back from getting the psp go,CRISIS CORE, BOTH GRAND THEFT AUTOS, PHANTASY STAR,AND KILZONE LIBERATION!!!!!

  • IDk what’s going on with my account but since I read this I haven’t been able to sign on my account. When I go to my friends list on this site it says I have none…anyone else having this problem????

  • @JETFLY_718 you said it bro, i was so furious when i cant connect because this the first time it happened to me and i don’t know what to do about it and I’m so excited on playing Uncharted 2, I’ve been trying the test on connection in the PS3 settings for almost 4 hours and trying to figure out what’s wrong with it. all i ask for PSN is they should post this noticed where we gamers can notice it and have a heads up on whats happening like put it the WHAT’S NEW.

  • They’re putting up Dissidia, I just know it

  • where are the avatars?!

  • I cant seem to log on to the network since this maintenance took place! it keeps giving me an error and i’ve not changed any of my interent settings HELP!

  • @32: TriangleOffense:

    “since uncharted is primarily a single player game I dont think it was much of a concern better to do it now”

    You haven’t played multiplayer yet I guess! Dang, it’s as good as the game itself. I made the stupid mistake to play the games for a few hours, then told myself: let’s try multiplayer for a few minutes before going to bed… OUCH, still missing those few hours of sleep. The game is good single AND multiplayer.

  • Oh noez, teh PSN iz going 2 cost teh monieeeez!!!


    You seriously need to do something about chainmail. It’s out of hand, and it is against the Terms of Use. May I suggest a “Report message” button?

    I’m sick of unnecessary spam, and tons of my friends have a comment saying that if they get chainmail, they’ll delete the sender from their friends list. I don’t blame them.

  • I been seeing lots of ads for uncharted 2 and ps3 slim and only 2 for halo odst

  • It’s now 9AM EST, so by my calculations about 7 hours since the “maintenance”. [Note to those complaining about daytime work, it isn’t.] Can we get an update if it’s done yet, or are you guys all sleeping at 6AM PST?

  • @23

    It’s 2 AM EST, not 2 PM EST.

  • One simply has to read this thread to see how the PS3 rumor monster gets fed, lots of people getting all worked up and assuming a rumor is true, when it probably isn’t and thus inevitably creating mass disappointment over said false rumor. Vicious cycle ensues.

  • I love all these comments at 2AM (Okay, I know it’s only 11PM out there on the west coast, but still) “I can’t play games? What will I do?!?”

    Oh, right…sleep. ~8 hours go by, you wake up, and PSN is online again, in theory. It’s actually a perfect solution…lol.

    Or you could be like me (when I didn’t have a job), and just play something single player until maintenance is over.

  • Nevermind. Apparently blog time (even for me on the east coast) only displays pacific time for me. So it WAS 2AM pacific. (I really hope you guys went to sleep by 5AM eastern if PSN was still down lol)

  • It seems like there is a maintenance every week now. What’s going on?

  • I wonder if I can log into home finally i haven’t been able to for like 2 weeks every time I try to my PS3 freezes when it initializes the connection.=(

  • so i looked at the Twitter page, and there isnt an update about the Network status, but the support page says the Network is up.

    Im an not at home now so cannot check.

  • I don’t care about 3.1 unless it will fix all of the issues everyone has been experiencing with freezing in various games and on the XMB in general and NOT introduce any more! Why is it such a hard concept to grasp to put the potentially console breaking updates through better QA? Software Design 101 FFS

  • This is for stankbuda, here is what you have to do to get back on home. delete home then reinstall home and it should work for you.

  • Sweet I’ll try that when i get out of my Global Economy class. I hope it works I miss the theater space lol.

  • Sweet I’ll have to try that when i get outa this class

  • Can’t wait till it’s done!!

  • when its gonna be the next update to the sofware? 3.02 ?

  • i have problem with 3.01 my games get stok sorry for my english

  • @ jorge107

    well if the rumor Naughty Dog has started is true were skipping straight to 3.10 and were getting cross game chat and since their a game developer who to my knowledge only develops for sony more then likely its true since they would know about this close to a week or more before the update comes out

  • Any chance this is going leading up to a new firmware update that will fix the problem of my PS3’s fans running at high speed when idling at the XMB? It’s super obnoxious how loud it is even after taking measures to cool it down.

    I’m going to assume it’s related to the “What’s New” feature and constant ticker updates (neither of which I want or use) unless an official Sony statement explains the what the problem is, how it only started occurring after firmware 3.00, and accompanied with an offer to fix MY PS3 (not someone else’s refurb) for free even though it’s out of warranty.

  • when u think the new update its gonna come like 1 week 1 month :/ ! i cant play! :(

  • I just updated home now it jams up on the initialisation screen and crashes the ps3 updates are a pain

  • Does not affect me since my PS# is STILL busted!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously I need to fix it soon :(

  • Hmm what bothers me is that it seems sony has magically removed the discussion about all the people that had problems with firmware update 3.0/3.01 from the message boards and if you can even still find the discussion they have removed the ability to leave comments on the discussion board.

  • What’s this rumor about being charged for PSN access starting in Dec 2009????

  • hey is the cross gaming chat comfirmed and wen is it supposed to be on the ps3???

  • Since the network update occured I have been unable to do join ANY online games in any game that i own. Whats wrong with my PSN connection? Its not my router/modem.

  • ANy updates? I’m probably not the only player that this has happened too. My other systems work fine online, so it the update must have done something to mine. NO GAMES WORK ONLINE! Please help!!
