PlayStation Network Update: PSN Status May 30

When the Sony PlayStation network went offline back in April users of the service were frustrated. A month and a half later some users are still frustrated. The PSN status for May 30th has the network up and running in the US, UK, and  parts of Europe and Asia. The full restoration of the PlayStation network is occurring in phases so not all components are available yet.

Sony was very vague when the network went down last month. They did not come forward at first to admit that the site had been hacked. When the truth did come out users of the network also found out that their personal information had been accessed, although credit card fraud charges have not been reported. The PlayStation network is now offering an identity theft program to users in the US who were members before April 20, 2011.

For those of you that have not gone back online yet you need to download the update for either your PS3 or PSP. A password change is then needed before you can get yourself back into the gaming world. Most users within the US say that the PSN status as of May 30th allows them to play games but not access the store yet. The PlayStation network looks to have all aspects back up and running in the US in the very near future.

    Okay…more pointless updates. Everyone want to now when the store will be back up. It’s May 30 right now. Sony needs to make good on their promise and have it up by tomorrow. Though this is an infuriating process, I will still never disown sony, because they have the best systems on the market.

    My main concern for the PSN is that I have the ability to use the DLC i purchased with preorders. I recently preordered LA Noire and inFamous. I was unable to use the DLC from LA Noire. and inFamous will be in stores within just a couple of weeks. I am really upset that i cant use any of the extras that I paid for. I know it isnt Sonys fault they were hacked. but I wish theyd fix it before inFamous is out.

    hey, what do you mean by we have to change password? you mean the connection
    “code” password? which password!?!?!

  4. Jason says:

    The Playstation Store is NOT up today, May 30 2011 @ 6:43 PM EST. I keep trying to login and it says “This service currently undergong maintenance.”

  5. Ry Ry says:

    If the stores not up tommorow and i cant get the infamous 2 demo, im gonna be pissed. Sony keeps lying. I wouldnt expect anything less then them not bringing it back like they said they wouild.

  6. Ray says:

    I still can’t log on. I’m told to renew my password but every time I try to log on to renew my password the server is still currently down? I’m trying to use my Netflix and I need to log on before I can use it. Anyone out there know what to do? Thanks!

  7. Pete says:

    Frankly, the only update I want to hear about Sony is whether or not the store is online. The network has been available for a few weeks now, the store has been the bone of contingency.

    you need to change your login password for the PsN its an additional safety measure

    welcome to earth

    I hope its up and running by the 3rd so i can play call of the dead, i think its been enough time to have everything running smoothly. I love you sony but i will hold you to your promises.

  11. Praveen says:

    I am not sure whether Sony is serious about fixing and opening their online store anytime sooner. What am sure of is that if this is gonna continue Sony is gonna lose a lot of loyal customers. I guess they would be aware of it.

  12. Junior says:

    All I want is the playstation store back on by today at night, or midnight, or just to
    Tomorrow in the morning, in the afternoon right after I get out of school.

  16. voljar says:

  18. nick says:

  19. Tuci says:

    Update on PSP no use. Have to change password but cannot. Will there be another update soon after the PSN is up and running? And which part of the world is where the head office of the PSN is in? Is it the U.S.? Just wondering because it has been a while.

  20. Anthony says:

    To: Ray, you can still use the netflix on your ps3 u just need to get past the log in screen. when it prompts u to sign in do so & its gunna say that u cant. hit circle to go back & wait. netflix will continue to load & it’ll ask u to sign in again. do the same as before let it log in & tell u it can’t & hit circle. netflix should then be available
