Playstation Network Down for Two More Days – Twitter Reacts

Posted on Apr 22 2011 - 1:46pm by Thomas Sharp

Millions of gamers across the world are switching on their PS3’s to discover that the Playstation Network is down many of whom assumed it’s a minor glitch. Sadly this isn’t the case as Sony confirms that the entire network could be down for a further 48 hours meaning online game play could be out of the question until Saturday at the earliest.

That would mean the network will be down for around five days in total (worse case scenario) which has prompted many users to ask for an explanation. James Gallagher, who heads up the official Sony blog, has admitted that the problems could have been caused by outside interference. He explained via the blog on 21st April; “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”.

The outage has come at a rather unfortunate time for SCEE as Portal 2, Mortal Combat 4 and SOCOM 4 all come with online game play and with a rely heavily on the PSN network. However they are still pushing heavily via social networking channels to promote the games with one tweet reading “What are you doing over the long weekend? Let us help.” Which spurned a lot of responses relating to PSN, some of which where more colourful than others.

One replied “@PlayStationEU waiting for the psn I’m hoping your fixing it” whilst another said “@PlayStationEU not playing on PSN by the looks of things!” – If you ask a silly question like that you are only going to receive honest answers.

So it seems PSN gamers will have to wait, how has this affected your gaming and attitude toward PSN?

UPDATE: Playstation has issued another statement.

    PSN Are just proving all its Xbox fan critics right that XBOX Live is better than PSN but i refuse to use xbox live why should you have to pay for a subscription to game online, truth is PC Online gaming has always had the upper for this !

      "proving"? – really? It is VERY unfortunate that hackers have decided to target Playstation Users, they may actually be intelligent to to good some good somewhere but, instead they decided to pick on me. They claim that sony is only "renting" the PS3 units to us because they can't hack the hardware and run pirated stolen illegal games. Well, let's be clear, I purchased my PS3 so I could load MY photos, MY music, MY videos and run games that I purchased AND OWN and have NO problem with the terms of agreement. You want to be able to hack, write, re-write, mod everything just like the XBOX. Thats NOT why "I" bought MY PS3 – You are hurting "me" and "us" not SONY, we are not idiots, we know SONY isn't doing this to us, it is you…..GROW UP, BUILD YOUR OWN CPU!…HUH? HOWS THAT?….I D I O T S

      Not true, XBL could probably be hacked just as easily, and if that were to happen the users would be much more upset than us.

      Imagine paying for the service and having it go down! The only thing I'm losing is time, and a few days on PS+ but I'm sure I can have sony extend that without an issue. So what? The network went down for a while. Don't any of us have anything better to do?

      Sure, I'm upset I can't get my 14th prestige over with, and that I can't play Portal 2 co-op; but who cares? It's a holiday, it's a weekend, I have family, I have friends, and I'm not paying for a service so nothing was stolen from me!

      u only have to pay for a gold account…..and u also get what u don't pay for…lol….xbox is a much better set up all around ie party chat in game,not having to exit the game to change system settings….if we had to pay for psn things like this would not happen every month….it has never happened on xbl unless it was scheduled and notified in advance….i own both systems and am not a xbox "fan boy"

      xbox live is better then psn, i own a wii , ps3 and xbox 360 ad xbl is the best, and yes you must have a subscription to xbl but you can get that for free, check out my site, i have personally gotten xbl gold for free and over 3200 msp with out paying once cent! although i do use the ps3 to watch netflix, and it does make it kinda hard when it says i need to be signed in to watch it and there is this error.

      "We are Anonymous"?. "We are Legion"?….you are IDOTS, the REAL hacking community is based on a certain level of "geek respect", the fundamentals of hacking are being exploited by "ANONYMOUS" (very original name, by the way) – I respect "true" hackers with sometimes, odd but understandable reasons but, you are not…you are rubbish….you are picking on a community NOT a corporation. You are driven by your own PERSONAL agenda and thoughts and ARE NOT representing the true gaming community, not to mention the PS3 is supposed to be a multimedia device NOT a specific gaming device. Go buy the games like we did instead of worrying about being able to pirate everything….get a job….build your own console "ANONYMOUS STATION 4"…I'm sure your popularity will help you sell one or two.

      Idiot. The hackers aren't fighting for some high and noble cause, neither are they Neo from the Matrix – They're just a bunch of losers with a bit of skill who've decided that the best way of using their talents is to ruin other people's enjoyment. They aren't beating 'sony' just inconveniencing legitamite people who have paid for consoles and games.

      Freedom isn't having the 'right' to steal software from developers to use on illegally modified consoles. What would the end result be – no one develops software 'cos there's no money in it and no one brings out new consoles as there won't be any software.

        I've had an xbox for longer than I can remember, and not once has xbox live ever been down. From my experience with both consoles, Xbox has had the superior online experience, not to mention the customer service. I've had nothing but troubles since I've boughten my PS3, which I only did because all my friends have it. I've never had a spot of trouble with my xbox. And you say Xbox will always blow?

    all these idiots saying how stupid Sony are and how they will up and go to XBOX, hacks can happen to anything, wouldn't you rather they turned it off and removed it all and stopped it instead of leaving us to be hacked freely? They say they aren't targeting the customer, just the company, but once someone has hacked it, there would be no stopping other people also hacking in and stealing DLC's, credit card details and manipulating games, which is something that should never happen.

    Xbox is better. I gave PS a chance and look what happens. I own both PS3 and Xbox 360 and I have to state that i have had more upset with the PS3. So what's the deal here? At least Xbl gives you a notification when the network will be down for repairs.

Yelling at them won't make anything go faster, and since it's easter weekend how about you try praying to god and thanking him for what he did for all of us, easter isn't a day about some fake easter bunny it's a day where we should thank him for everything.

Being in the IT world I know this is not an easy task, but yet and still is the job of IT to have a 7/365 system up and running even if it requires the company to have a identical back up sever farm running offsite.

    Xbox time. Sony is a big industry, somethin is terribly wrong with them. They should be prepared for this kind of stuff, there should be back up servers and they should even have a tech team for all of this. Im really disappointed that psn ws hacked, because this shouldve never happened in the 1st place. If youRe such a big company why isnt your security up to date. No1 should be able to hack yall. Now since this happened, youRe startin to lose all your customers. So many people have restarted their ps3s to their defaults recently and have lost many games. Now, while we wait on your service our easter holidays are ruined. Mostly every kid i know got out of schooll and early and turned on their ps3s and wam error: you have been signed out of psn. This is terrible, now i have to buy a whole new dc universe game subscription just because mine has just been cancelled by psn. Thanks alot sony!

    Strictly speaking, PSN is not free. We pay for it when buy our consoles and games. If it were a paid service, I may well have bought an XBox instead – PSN was the sweetener that helped seal the deal.

    So they've been hacked and they're defending theirselves. Fair enough. The hackers say they should be able to use the console they own however they want, but we all know 99.9% of them will use a cracked console to play pirate games.

    I support Sony in their action. I just wish it wasn't taking so looooooooooong…

      Pretty sure that card information is hard drive specific. Also if memory serves, I remember it asking if you wanted the card info to be stored or not. If you were smart and anticipated something like this, you would have selected no. Even if you said yes, I believe the info is still hard drive specific. Not stored on Sony's server.
      As far as online game scores go, of course they'll still be there. We don't play online games through Sony, we play them through whichever company who made and their server. So for example, Call of Duty MW2: it's run through Activision. Black Ops: through Treyarch. And so on and so on.
      As for trophy levels, it won't be hard to resync if they get erased. So chill.

    Alright, to all of you who are bitching about not being able to play online, get the hell over it. It's just online. The games you bought have a single player campaign, do they not? Play that instead of griping over not getting to participate in the routine bullshit of online play. The PS3 isn't all about being able to play online. I admit I'm a little annoyed at the fact that I can't sign in, but at least I still have the sense to play the single player on the games I bought. I'm not gonna let a bunch of low life dickheads ruin my weekend because they decided "LOL LET'S GET BACK AT SONY AND HACK THE SHIT OUT OF THEM". They took away our ability to play online but they didn't take the ability to play the game itself.

      Lol, you're a sad sad little boy. No online play = no fun? How about playing the single player like I said you can do above. Get over not being able to play against others. Think of it this way, I'm sure at some point during your online play you get pissed at someone who's being annoying. Then you go on and on about it. Then you eventually get really aggravated with the game being "gay" or "shitty connection" or people being "fags". Playing single player eliminates all that.

    Why is everyone so angry? It's a free service.. what did you expect?

    Complaining about it isn't going to get you any where.. in fact, you should count yourselves lucky that they are fixing it. They also don't owe you an explanation. So seriously, give them a break.

    Both systems have their problems. I own both an Xbox and a PS3, and I've had issues on both. However, not everyone can afford to pay for LIVE, and that's understandable. But if you're getting something for FREE, then you shouldn't be able to complain. Don't expect to be compensated for this downtime.

      If you want to get mad at anyone, get mad at the hackers who constantly decide to break the terms of agreement that they said yes to when making their accounts. They're the reason why PS3 is "always" doing maintenance. Other than that, it's them trying to better the product.

    Honestly these hackers may have been” book smart” but they lack common sense. Skills to bring down the entire psn could make some serious cash. They will be caught they will pay for years for a stunt that lasted a few days they have F’d themselves, while we wait. If you’re stressing take a step back, open your minds, and realize their punishment. Next understand that a few days of your lives without games is ok.

    I hardly have been using my ps3 this year, and having time off now I decide to play some good online fun & the few games I bought this year have online gaming, loging in etc..but noooo..
    Since this later on the 19th it (PSN) went down we're being told it might talk another 48 hours? WTF?

    Knocks on Sony's head, hell-o?!? Is anyone home? Oh and thanks for now changing the error code to say there is a maintence issue with PSN and will be down. etc=BlahBlah

    This is really getting annoying, I thought something was wrong with my internet connection through the PS3 but once i checked out the browser it was working perfectly. It's true sony can't do much they are probably doing the best they can to get the servers back up. I'm pissed off because i just got black ops and i can't wait to play online again. But what can you do! Relax and wait for it to end! 🙂

    And all those saying go outside and do something else, I play my ps3 at night time, no sun, not warm, not good, I am entitled to complain i have payed for 7 ps3's in its time of release cos of faults and spent thousands on games, headsets, add ons and themes you name it, WE as consumers spend spend spend all for these muppetts to fail on their firewall protection, I think they have all checked out for the weekend have skeleton staff and thats why its down for 4 days to save money, cod is the same, 4 years of no advertising cos they know people will buy the game, when they do they release it with faulty servers that are still not fixed, map packs that cost a small fortune although you bought the game at a high price. ALL peolple want is as least a honest answer, I dont know about anyone else here (uk) i have also noticed lots more than usual ps3 adverts on the tv why is this i wonder, anyway i will contact sony on tuesday with a healthy fat complaint cos i care for us the CONSUMER.

    As much as I bitched out about this at first, I realized that nothing we do or say will ultimately make the process of getting Sony's servers back up quicker or less painful for us gamers as it is. So if you have faith in Sony, then lets wait it out. If you can't do that then none of you have the right to call yourselves Sonymen or ps3 fanboys.

    this is to all xbox fan boys: in 2007 around xmas time, xbox live was shut down for 13 days. they were paying for it back then too, so this is not a reason to throw your money at a system which will break down on your entirely within a year.

      damn, your fickle arent you. If your that easily swayed, im guessin youll get rid of your xbox in a few months and go back to ps3 when you get tired of paying extra for something that could be free. What about all your gaming friends on ps3? I dont know, im sure as hell not going to trade for an xbox. The controller is so uncomfortable. but thats just me.

    So anonops says they will continue to attack Sony. Then they release a statement saying they are not responsible for the crash and suggest maybe it's because Sony is incompetent. 2+2=4 in my book. Taking credit for the attacks just made them look like aholes….and they were. But if they make Sony look incompetent then they make SONY look like aholes. I'd like 20 mins alone with whoever pulled the trigger on this attack. You guys are nothing but al qaeda. Go die. Painfully.

    I think the responses show what a spoiled sad lot we are that play online video games. WE cant be patient and wait for playstation to fix whatever is going wrong? They are fixing it cause it obviously needs to be fixed. I was just glad to find that after 2 days of worry, it wasnt something that was wrong with my personal system! what a relief! kudos for playstation taking care of their problems so we can continue to have a great gaming experience. What a bunch of sorry jerks. Cant stop playing online for a week? are you serious! get a life! maybe you should go outside more. And another thing, at least we dont have to pay an annual fee to get online right? hello. Spoiled jerks who aint got nothing better to do. What, are we all on crack here? lol.

Its kinda scary. So im preachin to myself too. Maybe they are messin with us..take it away for a little while only to make us that much more addicted. smart move if they are doing this. Kinda scary if it were true. Its already scary though. its like 'ps network could be down for another 48 hours!!!" and its an uproar. crap, i thought they were gonna say for a month. lol.

    selfish people on here are complaining about how they cant use psn over the weekend and that they want somthing in return but if u hadnt noticed the people who work at sony arent getting a easter holiday as they are REBUILDING their network for us to use it without hackers and even more selfish people took the weekends away from those people by deciding to hack the ps3 if u ask me those people are low life jerks taking peoples easter away from them, i have been a loyal playstation customer since the early days of the ps1 and have had a ps3 for the past 4-5 years and this is the first time i have ever had any trouble wit hackers so all those people complaining about getting 5 years of free, hackerless online from sony are ungrateful people. I am happy to wait for sony to rebuild the psn as i know after all this i can get back to the great ps3 i know and love
