PSN Should Be Back Within A Few Days, Says Sony

by Mike Bendel on May 10, 2011 @ 10:26 am


According to a just-posted update on the official PS Blog, Sony anticipates that it’ll “likely” have PSN services restored within the next few days.

Hardly a concrete timeline, but hey, it’s better than May 31. Anyone want to place bets on what day we’ll see services resume?

c'mon i just wanna play MK online! :D

Bizarre says:

Don't believe anything I hear until I see.

Hellcat says:

What was that "PSN" thing again?

TeamOverload says:

I just want Netflix back. It lets me view my queue when I bypass all the sign in prompts, but errors out all the time when actually trying to load a video >_<

Biggy204 says:

Now its a "few days" mean could be 5 days from now or until xmas who really knows. Heck even Sony doesn't know when it'll be up.

Robby says:

This said this once and it didn't happen, then they say it will be back by the 31st and now they say it should be back within a few days.

I don't trust anything they say no more, I actually took them serious for being such a major contributor in the gaming industry with their console, now I don't know.

hush404 says:

@Robby - You do know that the "31st" idea wasn't theirs. It came out of some rumor, eh? That's the problem with random sites reporting on news, a lot of it can be made up and people follow it as gospel.

Sarcasm says:

A few days = may 31st for Sony

ultimakillz says:

thats odd. i havent had any issues watching netflix despite the psn being down :\

TeamOverload says:

Yeah, I'm not sure. Some people have no problems but others do. I load it up and it tells me to sign in, I hit X and it pops up with an error saying PSN is down for maintenance. Repeat one more time and then my queue comes up. After that it asks me to log in and the same thing occurs, but then Netflix itself spits me out a communication error :/

Hellcat says:

BTW: Did they mention the YEAR of said "May 31st"? Like be it in 2012, 2013 or 2020?

enjoying my xbox live!=-)(jk....let's not start a console debate...)

Bran says:

I hope so, I'm sad it's been gone so long. I have games to play with friends damn it!

Demon's Souls mostly!

january39 says:

Yeah, no year was mentioned, and given developments so far who knows what to expect. Im only half joking as well :p

MenaceInc says:

How's paying just for online multiplayer working out for ye? I tell you, it's good being on PC. Also we get mods, dedicated servers, mouse and keyboard, higher fidelity visuals. It's all pretty good over here.

nevster says:

psn being down has actually worked out ok for me, finally got round to soft modding my wii lol its not quite a playstaion, but its passing the time ;p

KezraPlanes says:

I think it's a thing in which you wanted to publish games.

slicer4ever says:

one day menace, one day!, and i'll make you some cupcakes, but really, i wish i had the money to get a good enough pc to play some of the games i'd want to play on pc.

KezraPlanes says:

Seconded.

MenaceInc says:

My current PC cost me about

MenaceInc says:

Portability always compromises power. Handheld vs home consoles even. I generally don't need to move about a lot when I'm playing games so that's not an issue really. Even still, I have a netbook which cost me

Dan says:

I play my games, and I play them well. Don't give a shit about the platform at the end of the day.

:troll:

MenaceInc says:

Enjoying co-op Portal 2 there? :troll:

Dan says:

Your mum is enjoying it

MenaceInc says:

My mum was with my sister all day you sick perv. Anyways, less derailing of threads, more on-topic.

I doubt PSN will be up soon.

That is all.

Bran says:

I doubt, but I hope.
