PSN Down: Playstation Network Down Update May 11

Wow, we finally got another update on the psn down problem from the actual blog. Guess what it says. Yeah, that’s right. It says that we don’t know when we are going to have it back up but it will be a few more days.

playstation network down may 11I suppose that this communication about the PSN down problem is better than nothing at all but that isn’t enough news for most users. The system has been down since April 20 and people are serious about getting their games back up for play. The hack caused greater problems than Sony had believed and there was another attack that happened at the same time that they had overlooked. If you have heard there is a deadline for the product to be back up you’ve been misinformed.

There was a report that the services should possibly be up by May 31 but as you can see by reading the PSN down update on the start up time is not sure. You are just going to have to wait a little bit longer for the services to come back online. This attack is believed to of happened because the hackers wanted revenge for a lawsuit that Sony had put out again them. What are you thoughts on Playstation network down?

    If “one or two days” equals 3 weeks, I wonder what a few more days will equal to..

    Its a brand new paradigm in software management – its called the “timeless timeline”. Its a timeline with no times or dates, so your project can never really be late. Get it ? this is going to be huge among project managers, mark my words.

    I understand the length of time they are taking due to the fact that they do not want a repeat incidence. I’m also sure that they are looking into finding out who exactly did it. I do believe that Sony is well within the power to just turn on online gaming as i believe that our PS3′s serve as the servers anyway… Another issue I want to address is that the coward hackers that wanted to get back at sony affected all of us. Im sure im not the only one who wants to hurt these hackers who hide behind their technology.

    at any other time of the year i would be going through withdraws. but since i live in Colorado and it snows most of the time, it just started to get sunny and hot. so its been enjoyable to get out and hang out. i havent really turned on my PlayStation in about 5 days. combat training gets pretty boring.i feel for the guys who really like their games and yeah that sucks but still, i dont even have the money to switch even if i wanted to.

    Dear SONY; I just want 20 skill points for my character on DC universe ps3 world ” count down ” instead of that batman mask.

  8. daddy kane says:

    Im so over it! ! im switching to
    WII LOL

  9. Jmc says:

    Playstation doesn’t know how long it will take. Why do they keep posting that it’ll likely be “a few more days”? To string their users along deviously while preventing a bigger exodus over to XBOX live, obviously. You can’t disagree because this is the 4th time they’ve said “a few days” in the last 3 weeks.

  10. CHASEMONEY says:

    sony playstation is lucky my name is not bill gates cause as soon as playstation network went down I would had a trading deal ,playstation 3 users trade in your ps3 for a xbox for a 100 dollars , get a free one year prescription for xbox live I would do it I’m so tired of playstation not say nothing beyond in a few days for 3 week,and plz fixing the network please do something about the hackers in cod

  11. Josh says:

    I’ll see you guys in July when PSN is finally back up. Oh well, at least I’ve been exercising more per day and am building up my endurance.

    Hopefully my reaction time and aim hasn’t been hindered by this outage however, I don’t want to not play my FPS games as good as I was before the outage.

    Wow

  13. CJK says:

    to Max bacon:

    You DO know you can play Team Deathmatch against 5 computer players with yourself and 4 computer ”
    friends”, right? local match, split-screen FTW

  14. Tannis says:

    Is Sony working on an entirely new network or updating the current one? Are they going to go to pay to play? What is taking so long? Without regular daily updates all we can do is speculate! XBOX 360 is starting to look really good right now! GYST Sony! Keep us informed or loose us!

  15. Lauren says:

    If the so-called ‘hacktivists’ were trying to garner sympathy for their cause, they’ve basically failed. This is punishing Playstation users and gaming companies just as much if not more than it is punishing Sony. Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us, guys. Great job.

  16. MaRz says:

    Does anyone else feel like sony isnt trying as much as they should be and dont care about there fans who’ve been dedicated to them since ps1? Sony your fans are loyal and you are deceiving them “/

  17. douce says:

    EVERYONE,LETS DO A PROTEST!DONT BUY ANY GAMES UNTIL PSN IS BACK ONLINE.DONT BUY OR PRE-ORDER ANY GAMES FOR PS3UNTIL THE PROBLEM IS SOLVED!!!IN FACT,LETS NOT BUY ANYTHING OF THE PSN UNTIL AFTER A WEEK THAT ITS ONLINE WITHOUT PROBLEMS!PLEASE HELP AND PARTICIPATE IN THE PROTEST!!!

  18. KILLZONE says:

    “Pay 2 play???” They would need wheel barels to carry their balls if after all of this they would ask us to actually pay them money for our security when most of us feel they should be paying us something. I haven’t thought of switching as of yet but if they expect me to pay for online gaming il go Xbox. If i have to pay, il pay microsoft and actually have secure gaming and a larger more populated environment. And for those of you saying “aww but then id have to start over” get over it. my psnid is lvl 14 and id piss it away for a stable platform

  19. Tuscaloosa says:

    I got all three systems but I still love my ps3. CoD isnt the same on XBox. Everybody crying about they r going to get a 360, congrates. Its about time that u give urself some options. Since this outage my city has been devastated by a tornado, lost my job (im not worried because I got savings and a 401k) and my mind lol. Its more important things going on besides ps3 outage. Grow up and be productive. tuscaloosaking

  20. IFlaberGastedI says:

    To the guy that said sony is lucky his name isnt bill gates… Bill gates has nothing to do with Microsoft anymore. He left hte company in 2008. And for everyone saying xbox is looking so good right now, most people tend to forget that Xbox live went dont for quite sometime back in 2007. SO if your thinking things like this only happen to sony your sadly mistaken. Now Im no Sony fanboy and I own the PS3, Xbox 360 and WII, yeah its frustrating that the psn has been down so long but Id rather them take there time and get the network fixed than have it come back on and a day later hackers are taking it down again because it wasnt secure enough.

  21. johnson says:

    I completely agree with the fact that sony has really dropped the ball when it comes to communication because letting the internet do the talking for you is going to hurt you more than the truth. But as for the pu$$y a#s hackers that did this they need to be made an example of. This is just rediculus that they got caught bein douche bags and had to throw a fit and take it out on over a 100 million users that have nothin to do with anything. I’m behind sony (altho like anyone and want psn up asap) in this and hope they come out stronger and have a few “annonoumus” hacker b!tches behind bars. btw all you saying your swithing to xbox have fun paying for online, the red ring and dealing with f#%kin microsoft replacing your trash (if they feel like they can’t screw you in to buyin a new one lol) and all the other problems and bull that will forever keep me a fan of anything but xbox.

  22. johnson2455 says:

    To marx bacon

    My screen name on here is my psn name if u wana add it when its back up I’m from loveland co and always like gettin new locals on my buddys lis lol

  23. Mitchell says:

    Traded my ps3 for 360 and gears of war triple pack. Already been enjoying it more than resistannce.

  24. jared says:

    shouldnt be so upset with sony, not so much n e ways, they didnt crash the were screwed by an outside source. could have happaned to any online sevice, xbox, wii or PC game servers. additionaly, if you few that cant live without growing roots infront of a screen, it should be said that PC games are, and have always been more entertaining, get over your fear of useing a keyboard and mouse!

  25. JB says:

    How are they going to loose us? ohhh you mean lose us….XBOX 360 is looking good to you because gamng is all you will ever amount to so you need to feed your addiction.

  26. Too little too late says:

    A multi-billion dollar company like Sony knows everything before it happens…chew on that :)

  27. phish1987 says:

    I switching to the Sega Saturn!

    Nah I wouldnt give up ps3… It has been perfect time to chore through the offline platinums, I have got 6 since it has been down bringing me up to 62 Platinums….

    A little more infor would be nice but It has been a perfect excuse to revise for my uni exams now.

  28. stephanie says:

    what exactly is ” a few more days “

  29. biohazard498 says:

    im done im switching to rollerblades and the outdoors lol

  30. Chris says:

    I don’t think Sony isn’t doing a final security check, I bet that nothing has changed since April 21st . Sony’s properly running around like chicken with their heads cut off .

  31. hellyboy says:

    I’m a big sony fan,but its redicules how they keep giving us updates that don’t really matter. We know about the what have been done. The last 3 updates,people don’t care about

  32. mark says:

    just give up on the psn if u cant do it by now itll never be up, start building the ps4

  33. Tdigit says:

    Damn, PS3 time is starting to get as bad as drug dealer time. ” I’ll be there in 10 minutes man.”

    ….Sure you will

  34. Gr!m says:

    I am so so tired of waiting on the PSN network to comeback up. All this semester I have studied my ass off and neglected my Ps3 and as soon as school lets out I was expecting to be able to get off of work and enjoy a good night of Black Ops. Apparently the district of PSN and the hackers do not want that to happen. Ok seriously, what is the point of hacking, you waste all of your life and time trying to hack and after it’s over you get nothing in return but a small smile across your face and the hate of every PS3 user in the Nation. If I meet this hacker person and friends I will personally deliver a sick form of torture that even Kratos could not have mustered up. Just because you suck at life doesn’t mean you should bring down the rest of us with you. I do respect the fact that PSN is attempting to be honest with us even though the indirect speech patterns they keep giving us are un-caused for. There should be a daily post by PSN until this issue is resolved. Like Tannis says, keep us informed or lose us.

  35. Chris Ezell says:

    xbox live went ove to the 360 psn will go over to the ps4 so they HAVE to fix it before the new console comes out.

    patience.

  36. Justin Edwards says:

    I scrolled to the comments box to leave a message for Seybold or Caplin or whatever minion they’ve wheeled out of the coffin this week. But, of course, you have to be logged into PSN to leave a comment. Another piece of callous cowardice from the company I’m now embarrassed to have given money to…

  37. Luis says:

    Well if it was some hacker who was all buthurt over a lawsuit then if I get my hands on him I’ll break his leg s but then again he dosent need legs so instead I’ll leave him brain dead

  38. HURRY UP SONY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. hellyboy says:

    @ mark

    There have been other things i’ve been doing since the psn been down,but im bout to just give up cause this is very time consuming.

  40. jrankin89 says:

    Always been a huge PlayStation fan but i think its time to go xbox, with a 128 bit security.

  41. WOW SONY DOES IT TAKE THIS LONG U COULD OF BUILT A WHOLE BRAND NEW SERVER BY NOW FIRE UR MAINTENANCE MAN HE TAKES TOO MANY LUNCH BREAKS!!!!!!!!!

  42. Steve says:

    I am a huge Sony fan but Ill tell you that I am very very very disappointed in the way that Sony has handled this “cyber warfare”. I have owned both Microsoft and Sony gaming systems and I prefer the Sony gaming over Microsoft as well as that hideous controller. However, If Sony had pulled the plug on PSN the day after they were threatened for an update in security systems that took 21 days, I would have applauded them for doing what they were forced to do. Instead, they wait till these people carry out attacks on them so all of our information got stolen. No excuse for that crap! Also, after my information was compromised Mr. PATRICK SEYBOLD owes Playstation gamers a DAILY UPDATE ABOUT WHAT IS GETTING DONE ON THE SITUATION! The last post that had any value to it what-so-ever was on May 5th when we were informed about being in the final stages of testing and it would be a matter of days……once again A WEEK AGO! Now, I am not running out to buy an Xbox but I want them to know this WILL play a factor in my next gaming purchase decision comes up. I don’t want your crappy Premium membership or free downloads crap or my $7 back on my NETFLIX account, work it out with Treyarch(whom also is sub par please bring back infinity ward) and give us CODers double XP for the number of days I haven’t been able to use my system. Heck, this is getting into triple XP damage….geez!

  43. BiCkilla says:

    THEY SHOULD FIRE PATRICK SEYBOLD AND THE NERDS TRYING TO PUT PSN UP N RUNNING, THESE GUYS ARE BUNCH OF WASTE!!! YOU GUYS CAN’T NETWORK FOR SH!T!!!

  44. BiCkilla says:

    I THINK SONY HIRED DONKEYS IN THEIR PSN DEPARTMENT .. LOL!!

  45. mas-crisis says:

    Ive been waiting for psn to be back and still havent come back yet i play blackops and BC2(favorite games) i sick of not playing blackops and BC2 i jus want to play online thats all.

  46. Gr!m says:

    OK Steve, you are a great man….lol, everything you said i couldn’t agree with more but I think you left out one small thing. WE SHOULD HAVE A FEW MORE WEAPONS ADDED ALSO!! Maybe some new kill streak rewards also but the dbl exp definitely. We should get something, MY GOD PSN!!!! Can you at-least let the network back up for a day excluding the threats so everyone can say hi to their friends and maybe have one team death match. I think i want to go and get me an xbox as well but like someone said above I am afraid of the controller…lol, it is seriously hideous. And what is this i hear about a new console. Firstly i heard news that a new console wouldn’t be out for atleast 3 more years and now all of a sudden it appears that the new console will be out before the old one is fixed. Why is the progress so slow?? I am really concerned about the corporation if they cannot seem to take out less than 5 minutes to give us a briefing. How do you expect us to be loyal to something when we have no idea what is going on. For all we know you could be in cahoots with the hackers, or maybe you shut down the network for your own purposes. I don’t know about everyone else but I am starting to doubt Sony. Screw all the BullS#%T, just give us back what we payed our damn money for.

  47. fred says:

    2 more days and im done.

  48. Furtalance says:

    I F*****G AGREE…FIRE THE ENTIRE SONY STAFF!

  49. hellyboy says:

    I think we may have to wait all the way until,may 31st. Its funny they said”the system will be down for a full day or 2,end up being 3 weeks. Smfh

  50. Josh says:

    @ Gr!m, listen I understand yur pissed. But theres other stuff to do besides psn. I barely ever play during the summer. Why? Because I have a life. The one thing I respect you for is that uou didnt directly complain in your comment about how long it is taking. If we don’t give them enough time to fix the holess in security, then there will be another hack, and psn will be down again for even longer.

  51. Josh says:

    @Steve, first of all, they took the network down as soon as they heard there actually WAS a hack. Does a country take every single terrorist threat seriously? No, because there are way too many. I could call PSN up right now, and threaten to hack it again, and they probably wouldnt pay any attention to my threat. Why? Because they get way too many threats to pay attention to every one.

  52. John T. says:

    Patrick Seybold is just the scapegoat spokesperson. I have nothing against him as he’s just doing what his job title requires and he’s not a computer science engineer. It’s funny how Mr. Stringer, so called CEO only made a statement on this PSN mess once all the news outlets and blogs asked where he’s been throughout this. Well….. where is he now? Can we please get an update from the man running the company. I mean, he makes $2.5 million a year and another $2 million in bonuses, incentives, and stock options and yet he only cmes out when called out. COME ON! Facebook and Apple CEO’s for the most part are always around when their company faces a crisis!!! Unless the PSN comes back up today or Mr. Stringer makes updates on a daily bases on this matter, people (my self included) will not take anything Sony says seriously and the anger against the company will continue.

  53. Mr. Pie Guy says:

    1-2 days turns into a week turns into two weeks turns into three weeks. I will NEVER betray PlayStation for that thing they call the Xbox 3s****y, but with PSN down I’m not too happy with Sony at the time. I think it’s nice that we get a free month of PS+, BUT I think it would be better if we all get 3 free downloads. EXAMPLE: Escalation for Black Ops, DLC2 for War for Cybertron, and World at War. (That would be my choice.) But no, we get a month of something that half of us won’t even use. You know what’s going on right now? The biggest Microsoft geeks are probably sitting back in a lounge chair lauging their @$$es off. Enjoy it while you can Bill Gates. Enjoy it while you can…

  54. Elizabeth says:

    Damn you, you self righteous jerk hackers!!!!

    And who the hell is saying the xbox is perfect!! Have you ever played call of duty of the xbox!! it is hacked to shit!!! always have been!!!

    Dammit I have hackers!

  55. Elizabeth says:

    Damn my spelling while annoyed!!!

    always has** been

    I hate*** hackers

  56. Taya says:

    SONY NEEDS TO COME OUT AND SAY IT AND TELL EVERYONE THE TRUTH THAT THEY LOST EVERYONE DOWNLOAD CONTENT IT DOESNT TAKE THIS LONG TO FIX SECURITY ISSUES ITS BEEN 3 WEEKS ALREADY STILL NO PSN, SONY IS HIDING SOMETHING FROM THE PUBLIC I THINK ITS MORE 2 THE STORY THEN WHAT SONY IS TELLING THE MEDIA & THE PUBLIC IN STATEMENTS

  57. The real reason why the NETWORK is down is because sony is re building the NETWORK from the ground up . Something about people being kick of the network for no reason and lag problems .

  58. Who wants PS+ for free . When black ops escalation map pack would be a lot cheaper and alot of people would rather have anyway. Thats wot i think , how may people are going to use there download for the PS+ not me .

  59. Xcock bullshit me. says:

    Multibillion dollar company who can rebuild a network. Sony you have enough money to hire the best networking staff, build a a new PSN and yet you chose to fix this small issue. Sony I’m very disappointed as a consumer. I built my theater room of strictly Sony products and I promise you by Friday I will go german. Bose here I come!!!

  60. SONY NEEDS TO TELL US THE TRUTH ……. WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON SONY ?????? EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW…. NO MORE LIES

  61. DominikP says:

    WOW……I (Just Cant Wait) for PSN to back up online and its taking forever.The longer they take the more people they loose. I just hope it really comes back on May, 31, and thats still too long from now damn :( (

  62. hellyboy says:

    @vasko

    I agree. There’s gotta be sonething else going on.

  63. stoykov says:

    I can’t wait to be able to play online again. I’m waiting patiently and I’m still on ur side sony. I tried X box, don’t like it.

  64. HotShtInYa says:

    I agree. It’s unfortunate that people just won’t leave other people alone. In a perfect world this would be a statement that would have some merit. I say that to say this… If Sony was ready to turn the system back on last weekend… Why was it necessary to continue the delay? The system was supposed to be “capable”… Your thoughts???

  65. bir5586 says:

    eh…no big deal i can wait, i’ve waited this long so whats a few more days…plus i have more offline games anyway so i guess it being down only means i can’t my add ons for dynasty warriors 7 :( …then again i’ll get it when the network comes back on…

  66. Jimm says:

    i’m of the belief that Anonymous has nothing to do with this hack but were rather used as a scapegoat – although the timing is right the hackers acted in a way that this particular group simply doesn’t. Anon operates with DDoS attacks based on censorship and free speech issues. This was a time-loss intrusion with the possibility of stolen credit card numbers. It seems more like a disgruntled ex-employee or one of those obsessive microsoft xbox fanboys who think everyone should abandon sony and have a 360.

  67. arn mcduna says:

    its coming back tonight in ireland at 11.59 hours yeessssssss :]

  68. chris says:

    I can wait for another month is that is what it takes i will never switch to an x-box because for one it sucks and there are hackers on it all the time and two people mod their controllers and system and u can barely play on the 360 because sometimes people are invincible and i am never going to give up my ps3 because x-box SUCKS

  69. luda40 says:

    i agree wit everybody lmao especially the dude who said give me my damn money back

Speak Your Mind
