PlayStation Network Down Until May 31st?

Sony still "verifying the system security"

PlayStation Network Down Until May 31st?
[ Technology]

According to a Tokyo-based Sony spokesman, the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services may not get a full reboot until May 31st.

Shigenori Yoshida told Bloomberg that Sony is currently uncertain when they can begin to restore services. He says that a rough plan to restart the services fully by May 31st “remains unchanged.”

So what will come back on before then remains the biggest question.

Last week, Sony announced that they would try to restore “some services” within a few days, but that time has come and gone and the PSN is still down. As part of what they called the “initial phase” of rolling out restored services, they said that they planned to have online play on the PS3 and PSP, chat, and PlayStation Home up and running.

As we begin the new week, these services have yet to be restored.

The latest message on the official PlayStation blog states that internal testing is still going on, and that the systems can’t go back online until Sony can 100% assure the security of their users’ information:

As you may know, we’ve begun the process of restoring the service through internal testing of the new system. We’re still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system. Verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.

As you’ve heard us say, our utmost priorities are the security of the network and ensuring your data is safe. We won’t restore the services until we can test the system’s strength in these respects.

In the weeks that this saga has been playing out, Sony has upset most everyone involved with their handling of the situation. It took the company over a week to notify users that their personal information had been compromised. Customers have also expressed that they feel a lack of general concern from Sony. Last week, the company announced that it would be giving out a gift bundle to loyal users that includes free downloadable content, 30 free days of PlayStation Plus and music unlimited to Qriocity subscribers.

But if some people’s services are down for over a month, these gestures of good will may not suffice.

Last week, it was reported that hackers were planning another weekend attack of the PlayStation servers. Information of that actually happening has yet to surface. Last week, Sony implicated Anonymous in the original April attacks that prompted the initial shutdown. The hactivist group has denied involvement.

When Yoshida says that Sony still “plans to restart the services fully” on May 31st, it most likely doesn’t mean that all users’ online capabilities will be down until the end of this month. Sony continues to say that they will restore “some services” (WoW Gold Guide) as soon as possible. It looks like PS3 owners will just have to hope that “some services” are in fact restored before the end of the month and that they include PSN online gaming capabilities.

    WHAT a joke….(sigh)……..well, this is a unique business model I’d say – skimp on basic internet security then prove to you customers that you had NO backup plan to deal with the possibility of a major HACK ATTACK. Nice job SONY. X-BOX here I come.

    • Dave

      The Joke is on you… Sony hacked the system itself and laughing all the way to the Bank….This might not be entirely TRUE, but it sure makes one wonder.

      • glenn

        well yy would they do that because there going to give us free stuff because it got hacked so this will put them into debt

        • jsingf

          your a dumbass why would sony do that they have lost sponsors and app. 1.25 billion dollars get you shit straight.

  • ddfg

    Sony sucks. im never going to buy anything sony. HELLO MICROSOFT XBOX!!!! PS3 SUCKS!!!

    • wade3

      thats like you saying, thanks america for having the terroists attack us on our own soil (9/11). don’t blame the company blame the hackers, terroists, scumbags. their the reasons why we can’t play online.

      • Brandon

        Everything your saying is right. But they are not wrong either. Sony should have been prepared for this. Many people are going to switch to xbox now. If they want to downgrade let them. They will realize what a waste of money the xbox is when they get it.

      • eddie

        i dont give a crap whose fault it is..ive waited long enough…and they have had plenty of time to fix this!!!..what do they have working on this ..chimpanzees?…as much as i hate to do it…goodbye sony…hello xbox

        • Brandon

          I’m not sure you understand what’s going on…they are REBUILDING the ENTIRE system and network…expecting that to be finished(by that i mean finished well)in a week is expecting WAY too much..I’m sorry for those that can’t go a month without a FREE online gaming service….

          • Thank you!

            Exactly, People act like Microsoft is so much better at taking care of their customers. I will be quite amused when a similar incident occurs as it undoubtedly will for the 360. watch them botch the job and see it get hacked again in a few months. Then everyone will jump back onto the PS3 bandwagon and I’ll have called it.

          • Cody

            True they are having to do a lot of work but this not something they are starting from scratch. i do this for a living so i know whats involved. with the money and manpower sony is supposedly throwing around, something should fixed at this point. im not so angry at the time this is taking as i am the lack of preparation sony has displayed. with a security breach occurring earlier last month, they should of been on high alert but they fumbled the ball. then there is the lack of communication. the last few updates are very vague and basically just posted to say that there was an update. its very poor public relations. and as for the people who keep saying that we should stop complaining about “free” service being down, well its not free for some of us. i play DCUO, have netflix, and hulu plus so unless im compensated in some way for this (which doesnt look promising) i will have lost roughly $37.
            bottom line, sony was unprepared and is now looking like a fool.

        • flynn

          i would love to see u reboot a whole network of over 70 million users in a couple of weeks not sayin i can but u just need to chill out at least they are trying

          • chris

            X-box already has been hacked and credit cards were compromised. but that was some time back and they kept it under better cover. so those of u switching over to x-box have fun cuz they aren’t any safer! plus your gonna have to pay for their sevice!! ENJOY! lol

    • ryan

      This is a pretty disappointing situation. Although I do not put blame fully on sony, you would think THIS would be the last thing that would happen to them. Assuming they have big buck payed employees preventing this at ALL times. I have since purchased a xbox 360 and black ops (again) to continue my online gaming. I rely on my ps3, and hope this is a one time only issue. I would hate to lose faith of sony products. Because most of my major electronics are “sony”, and it has been that way for a long time.

      • ryan

        I want to keep faith in sony I do, but there going to need to do something B I G to keep customers. Also “kenect” is way better than the “move” ): sorry sony but its true. The PS3 against the Xbox360 hands down is better when its working.

        • dannyhefc

  • MARICON JACKSON

    SONY

    I AM NOT SURPRISED, CHECK OUT THE UPDATE FROM THE INTERNAL TESTING ENGINEERS, THEY STATED THAT THERE ARE OVER 6500 GLITCHES ON THE SYSTEM AND IT WOULD TAKE THEM ANOTHER 4 WEEKS TO PATCH. I’M GLAD I BOUGHT MY XBOX LAST WEEK, BETTER THAN HAVING A USELESS P.O.S. SYSTEM NEXT TO MY TV. YOU CAN COUNT ON 1 THING: I WILL NOT BE BUYING ANYTHING FROM SONY ANYMORE, AND I WILL BE GETTING RID OF ANY SONY PRODUCTS THAT I OWN, STARTING WITH THE PS3, THE TWO VAIO SYSTEMS I OWN AND MY CAMERA JUST TO NAME A FEW…

    • Gin

      • Xcockslive

        you’d better sell both of those PS3′s since you will need all that money to do anything on live. oh yeah, i have heard good things about the web browsing capabilities on the xbox, let me know how it works out. lol

        • what!

          its not not like the web browser is the best on the ps3. I think hes speaking from a online gaming point of view which he cannot do right now. and to some people the money isnt a thing to pay if they
          get to experience online gaming tight wadds.

    • http://www.zebradingo.com Tommy

      I wonder if they will compensate all of us who use the services?

      • Xcockslive

        the free services you use you retard??? shut the H@#$ UP! my butt hurts from taco bell, but i dont see them bringing me any free tp.

    • Eric Straw

      I think in this case maybe the xbox 360 might be the best alternative. Im just sick of the waiting when you pay hundreds of dollars for what was the best system around and now you cant even get the full functions that come with the system. Therefore i feel like i wasted my money. I might as well throw it in the trash because i doubt anyone will buy it. With postings saying psn will come up in a few day, a week or whatever they say and never does come up, I think psn is still highly hackable and i might not be able to trust psn ever again. well i guess thats what you get for having an unstable network…..xbox sounding alot better right now!

    • samboski

      iwould like to say that this is bull. hacking is a bicth ass crime and i am shore that it take brains to hack but these bums are hacking stuff that we as movement can not take. so i say to all the psn fans we should fight a this battle from are homes. somebody knows who did the hack. so why not tell. i know why becuse we are afraid. but how can we be afraid of so fat ass bum the hideing behind a dell. i bet these bums dont even know how they did it they was just hacking a round and got in then they are tacking bull. hack some thing useful bum. like the power compony make all are bill like a buck stop wasteing peoples time hackerBUMS. oh hack me if u can u bums i bet i can get u all in one rip u bumsif ni do u all are going to jail for 10- 15 for a pussy ass crime

    • john

      I’m on my way to buy an xbox. I bought 2 ps3s so I could play black ops with my kids well I guess bill is gonna get richer so sony kiss my money goodbye. the only thing I will buy (cause i have too) is bluray.

    • tyler

      although there systems are down it dosnt mean you should switch systems although many people alredy have

  • virgil leonard

    this is unacceptable. playstation should lose all of its customers over this. how in the world do you have a network set up and not a have a firewall? this network outage has been going on for 3 weeks now and all we get is articles pushing the date back even more. this ish needs to end. I only have 2 games DCUO & Black Ops both need PSN to play. this is BS

    • overdoseo8er

      you can play team deathmatch against computer on veteran, i know it’s not quite the same, only on blackops, maybe waw i dont have that game, but it does not work on mw or mw2, go to multiplayer, then go to local then choose split screen, but dont turn on second controller,go to edit game options, i play 3 on 7 on vet level great way to keep your skill tuned.

    • jlp

  • ErickZ

    Hey Sony it’s been 2 weeks now..you guys better hurry up before most of your costumers goes to XBOX including me!!

  • virgil leonard

    and for all you thinking the xbox is better know this. I bought mine in 09 and it lasted me until Dec of last year. then I started getting the red ring of death. and there is no fixing that. at least with PS3 i know when the network returns I can still play.

    • haydo henr

      there is multiple very easy fixes for the red ring of death just simply google red ring of death fixes………. takes about 2 hours instead of 2 months like sony

      • virgil leonard

        yes it can be fixed but it wont last. I repaired mine as well. cd drive and motherboard and it still died on me within a year

        • Pyroman101321

          ive had my Xbox for 4 years and its been going strong, and the new ones work even better. PS3 should have had a firewall but someone with enough time and skill can get through any security system. Its not sonys fault, it does really suck but the PS3 is still a good system and shitting on it just makes you look like a dumbass MARICON JACKSON.

          • MARICON JACKSON

            I BET IF I SHIT ON YOUR MOTHER’S GRAVE I WILL LOOK EVEN WORSE!

    • Faquarl

      3 year warranty for red ring of death, you get a new 360 in the space of a week. . . oh and your information remains secure :-D

      • nate152152

        Just wait till xbox gets hacked

    • justsouknow

      Actually PS3 can get the ylod(Yellow Light Of Death) that is the same as the 3 red lights. I just got my ps3 fixed and now this shit happened. XBOX is not a bad idea right now.

      • deathtoxbox

        i think this is hilarious. i have had my ps3 since they were first released. mine is the 60 gb and i have never had a problem with it. but ppl just cause u dont have online doesnt mean u cant just play the single player. just go get fallout new vegas.

        • what!

          whatyour not realizing is SINGLE player is not the most popular thing in gaming right now. Im sure everyone knows they have single player dude smh. If it was just as popular do you honestly think there would bw such an uproar? think about it rocket scientists….

      • Bigbru

        Both systems have flaws, YLOD and RROD. I have 4 360′s, one I bought new 3 years ago and it works just fine, the other 3 are ones I bought with RROD and repaired 2 years ago and work just fine. I also own 2 ps3′s that I bought with YLOD and a bad BD laser which I repaired and work fine. The key is to take them apart and clean out the dust inside every 6 months or so so they stay cool. Neither system sucks, they both have different XMB’s that you have to get use to. Yeah, paying for live sucks but I haven’t had my personal info stolen like with PSN.

    • aquds96

      you do realize you can send it to microsoft and they fix it in 2 weeks.

      • Auzn

        you do realise that would take longer… ?

  • SABURWOLF73

    I don’t see what the big deal is. I could understand if the service wasn’t free then heck yeah complain. But the service is free and Sony is giving out free shit for users who aren’t not paying for the network. Stuff happen, yeah Sony should have been prepared for this. But they weren’t, so be patient stop crying and wait for the server.
    I predict that the network will not be restore until the end of May beginning of June.

    • fearloathing_

      That’s the dumbest things I’ve heard yet. How much did your PS3 cost? What about the the COD combo pack? Special controllers…? Playstation move…? Give me a break because this is the worst excuse of them all. Sony’s products and services were all purchased under the pretense that Sony’s online network is free. In some cases people spend more money for Sony’s products because of this fact. Sony f’d up bad. Not only is their staff too incompetent to fend off hackers, but their PR handling of this event makes it thee Exxon Valdez of the tech world.

      • SABURWOLF73

        I’m speaking more in terms of online gaming. Of course you will pay for ps3 exclusives. But ask your self this do you pay for PlayStation online. No.. You pay for the games that you want. I’m not speaking interns of products.The only fault that I see with Sony is that they didn’t not warn gamers as soon as the problem accured.

        • Jon

          you’re still off base. you buy sony products such as the ps3 because it advertises free online gaming. i bought the ps3 for this reason.

          it’s like saying here, this is a blue ray player, but right now it doesn’t play blue rays. but if you hit the power buttong, it powers up.

          point is, you buy the ps3 for its free online gaming. myself included.

          • SABURWOLF73

            Disagree
            I purchased my PS3 for the Blue Ray,Playing CD’s, Internet browsing and playing games. I did not buy my PS3 for online gaming. I didn’t get into online gaming until GT5.

          • virgil leonard

            im with you on this one. I bought my Ps3 for COD and DCUO. this thing is $400 paperweight for right now.

          • SABURWOLF73

            I dont have any problem with playing blue ray movies. I love watching movies on my PS3.

          • Pete

            Your example of a blue ray player not working, that’s a hardware, so you assume that should work. The network situation isn’t really the same, but I get what you mean. I personally didn’t buy the ps3 for free online gaming. It’s an awesome plus, but some people did just buy it for the blu-ray player in addition to games, or were just not fans of Microsoft.

          • Dave

            but you DO pay for free gaming!

            you do pay for free gaming… the price of it is built into the cost of the games that are playable online… see prices.

            come on… no business would be dumb enough to give shit away if they did not receive an active ROI.

            do you think the toys in the happy meals are really free? how much would a happy meal or a ps3 game really cost if they didn’t give you something “free” with it?

          • Charlie Cruzen

            Last I checked PS3 and 360 games are the same price jackass. And btw I bought my PS3 5 years ago before I even thought about playing online and my playstation still works fine.

        • http://Force1pro.com methods

          Yes, we don’t pay for psn, but what about my mlb.tv $120 waste? I don’t own a computer so I have no way to watch it. Same with Hulu plus and qirocity…. Why couldn’t Hulu plus and mlb.tv work independentely like Netflix? I am attempting to get a refund for mlb.tv but they did say it was Sony who tethered it to psn, so it’s not so free.

          • MARICON JACKSON

            NOTHING IS FREE IN THIS WORLD, AND SONY IS AWARE OF THIS, SO PLEASE DONT BE SO GULLIBLE.

          • SABURWOLF73

            WOW

            I didn’t know that PS3 had MLB TV. I can understand your point. But still I will not pay for services that I could get free. Thankfully I have a PC and laptop.

          • http://Force1pro.com methods

            Just asking, how am I “GULLIBLE?” Was it because I wanted an awesome service, which mlb.tv is, or because I bought a ps3 in the first place? I also wonder why you are screaming Maricon?

      • Xcockslive

        yes you idiot the hardware and games cost money, like every other system, but everything else is free, for those who don’t speak english, this means you do not have to pay for it or have a stupid @$$ membership to renew every year. By the way, when you buy a controller, you really should not be thinking this means i can get online for free.

    • Mocha

      Not only that, what about our ALL OF OUR information!!!????? We were cyber raped and wasn’t notified til the end. I think that’s wrong!

      • SABURWOLF73

        I did not post my personal information on the PlayStation network account and as for credit card information. Never I always used the PlayStation network card to make my purchased, I keep all my information confidential. So when the network went down I didn’t panic, I do feel for those who have posted there personal information on there PlayStation accounts.

        • Xcockslive

          why is everybody so worried about cc info? just use an amex and they will handle everything. Never had to make more than one phone call for a fraudulent charge.

      • SABURWOLF73

        I agree.. Sony should have been more upfront with what happen which would allowed gamers to close credit cards.

  • Booker T

    Don’t know wat 2 say besides i’ve spnt alot of money on ps3 games and gadgets. A lot of money for something that cost over$400 bucks 4, not including games and other stuff for the consule. hopfully I can get over half my money back for this stuff from anyone… maybe a pawn shop. craiglist here I come(omg)

    • SABURWOLF73

      Yeah that me true I have the 500 GB PS3 with the move. But I’m not gonna rush to sell my PS3. I use if for more that gaming, surfing the net, watching Blue ray movies, playing Cd’s etc. Heck I’ve completed a few campaign modes and got some yard work done.
      Sony will reward those who stick in there. Besides people tend to forget that Micro Soft Xbox system crashed sometime ago. And in return the gave all there gamers a free arcade game. And that’s a pay site.
      PlayStation Network is free,I do feel for the hand held. If anything they should be on the ones complaining because they get there games from the network.
      The PlayStation is more than a gaming console it’s a entertainment system. So if you have games that you have not completed the campaign modes, feel free to do so and unlock trophies. It’s not like the system needs online access to operate. Ahh how I remember the PS1 days with out internet.

      • MARICON JACKSON

        WE WERE REWARDED ABOUT A MONTH AGO NOW, WHEN THEY LET THESE CYBER-CRIMINALS TAKE ALL OF OUR INFO.

        • SABURWOLF73

          Ok.. like for instance I hope that’s not your real name. You just open your self up for someone to use your name to open a bank account, credit cards etc. All you need is their person name and google.

            dude these people are ignorant for switching i hope xbox gets hacked so they will learn twice while we only go through it once

          • MARICON JACKSON

            HEY TONY, IM GUESSING IT HAPPENED TO YOU RIGHT? YOU PROBABLY PLAY WII NOW.

          • tony

            nope i onlyplay sony games and thats it ive play wii with my girl every once in a while but im loyal to sony

          • what!

            @tony
            ignorant for switching?! dude how can you let a corporation own you? what have they done for you? you must be one these little ten year olds talkin that crap! let me tell you somthing…son lol…thats how competition and capital works. Sony once had a good product and people purchased it. Now that they fucked up people want something better. And its bigger then just the network being down people cant trust them to secure their information amongst other things duhhhh.

    • tony

      well ill stick with sony playstion cause xbox sucks ass badly and i have had sony equipment all my life and besides allthe dumb asses who are switching to xbox are retarded cause you would be falling right into hackers plan o attack they could be doin this to get you all to switch sense their would be more credit cards on their sense they pay for networking which means more credit cards for them to hack so go right ahead and switch then you will get robbed for yer money ever thought of that?
      besides its not sony who made this problem its not like they made a call one morning to the hackers and said hey hack our software and screw up our system cause they lose business over this shit so stop whining like little babys and grow up and get girl friends or something!!! SONY ILL ALWAYS BE LOYAL WITH OR WITHOUT FREE GIFTS! YOUR THE BEST AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST XBOX CAN GO TO HELL CAUSE sony network can be down for a year and i still would be loyal

      • tony

        i might play another system for awhile but i wont buy a system ill play on a friends until this problem is resolved so sony take yer time and do what ya have to do to make the network safe for gamers im not complaining!!

      • dr asssmacker187

        That’s right tony!!xbox lovers can lick my balls, everyone that is talking shit about the ps3, are traders or they were already a xbox ass kisser.

  • Chris

    Going to get an xbox, fuck Sony and their lack of protection. I’m giving bill gates my money from now on

    • Xcockslive

      Do you use protection all the time? why should sony?

  • kyle

    this bs they should have told the right time in the begaining because all there doing is hyping people up to play with these faLSE STATEMENTS END OF THE WEEK MY AS

  • erk

    This is it, I’m loyal but if the PSN is not up on may 31 I’m gone last chance, you’ve lied twice 3 times and thats it

    • SABURWOLF73

      The reason why I said the end of May beginning of June. Sony will get this monkey off there back. Trust me when it’s up and running you will have 30 day free of the gametesters package. You will have a year of free security updates (NORTON) and many more.

      People are speaking about trading in there PS3′s and going to XBOX.
      Well they are going to take a lost. For the 120gb PS3 Gamestop is giving gamers 130.00 for the system. That’s not including the balance you have to fork out for a new system. Buy all new games and then pay for internet uses. Not to mention XBOX Live monitors your console.

      Just wait bro it will pay off.

  • Adam

    These f#$kin hackers should be executed when they are apprehended. Televised decapitation would be good. They are useless parasites.

    • MARICON JACKSON

      THEY SHOULD BE HUNG LIKE SADAM HUSSEIN OR MAYBE THEY SHOULD SEND A GROUP OF NAVY SEALS TO HUNT THEM DOWN LIKE THEY DID OSAMA! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!

  • Alex

    lmfao all you guys jumping over to xbox seriously need to take a good look at your lives. If you can’t live without psn for a matter of a couple of weeks to the extent that you go and spend atleast ÂŁ200 on an xbox where u will then STILL have to pay for online, then you really have issues. I’ll admit that i’m missing playing online too but there are other things to do and i remain loyal to sony. I can go without online gaming for awhile.

    • Yung EAzY

      or maybe alex should re-evaluate his thinking… im not affected by any of this… i actually think its pretty funny…i miss psn… i really do… i dont care that its down… the fact is that ur a corporation building a network for players to play on to their satisfaction… the term ‘hacker’ exists… so why build a network without that in mind… yeah its the hackers fault… but sony’s the one building without a firewall… which in turn makes this unacceptable!!! people want online… and taking somethin thats been givin already is ‘not ok’ to the people… so they’ll do wut they must… but anyway… god speed sony… do what you must so it can be like none of this happened… ;]

      • MARICON JACKSON

        IT ISNT’T JUST THE PSN BEING DOWN, IT’S ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE. THIS COMPANY LIED TO OVER A HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE, PEOPLE WHO TRUSTED THEM WITH THEIR INFORMATION; PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME SO WHY ARE YOU STILL SUPPORTING THEM. PSN IS DOWN, YES; BUT THAT’S THE LEAST OF MY WORRIES!

        • Sam

          I think its 77 million, but I agree. I will stay with PSN as long as this doesn’t happen again. I just want the store online. I know that cannot be done because of security issues, but I have content yet-to-be downloaded waiting. I want access to something I purchased.
          Just Sayin,
          Sam

          • Sam

            To clarify, I bought this content for $9.99 and I have not yet downloaded it. I was about to do it when the message “Playstation Network is under matinence” came up. I know this could happen anytime, but when Sony builds an insecure network, yeah I’ll be kind of upset.

            Also, they might have put the firewall thing in the lisence agreement.

        • Yung EAzY

          i understand that… i really do… thats why i ‘personally’ cant be mad at anyone 4 their jumpin ship… much less their console choice in general. and like i said. it IS partially sony’s fault. but the fact is my ‘support’ has already been givin. 400 4 the system and 200 for the games. that cant be undone and selling all for half to less of original payment hurts no-one but myself. my only retribution at that point would b to become a hacker myself and take my own action for my dissatisfaction and de-supportment of sony. i dont want that. i wouldnt wanna hurt any1′s gametime on ANY console. i think thats juss plain wrong. 100 million ps3 gamers not gamin becuz some bitch ass hack group feels like their rights are bein violated while most go around violating the privacy of peoples personal info…….. DUMBEST BULLSHIT EVER!!!! im a gamer. all around. u put a system their and its gonna get played. i play all systems… i dont discriminate… i’ll deal wit outage and b here when it returns.. ps3 here to stay.

      • superdave28465

        In my opinion psn wouldn’t have been hacked if they never offered qriocity service also i say the hackers work for bill gates who own x-box since psn doesn’t charge to play game online and x-box does. this would make people buy an x-box and he would get more money it’s all about the money.

  • Cory

    I have been being patient, but if sony thinks im waiting until the end of the month now, they have another thing coming. They have until the end of the day and Im jumping ship if it isnt back on.

  • josh

    i dont want a xbox i just want sony to give me a full refund on my system

    • scott harrison

      Im in total agreement with u ..u pay for a bentley and the give you a skateboard..then tell u that they are the same but different ..and so its free…u think that MORE or EXTRA precautions would be taken rather than little to none for online users..but heres your skateboard…its the same as a bentley…but different….what a joke …i got ripped offf for 400.00 plus my idenity….and lord knows what else..thanks playstation …now would be the time to buy stock in sony …right???

    • Sam

      HELL YEAH :D

    • john

      this is not ok by me. i want my money back for everything i have that deals with the ps3. how do they sell games that can only be played online but not offer u online service?ive payed for ps plus since it came out they say they will give me a month free . what about the month i just payed for and didnt get?just bought socom 4 only 10% of that can be played offline.socom 3 cant be played at all or my hulu. im done with sony i just need to get my money back and they can have there crap product. hey and if they only sold cards with points on them and never took credit cards online there would be no problem here .there would be no personal imfo that way. sony sucks bad

    • john

      wow, sony should run our country sounds like there just as incompetent as our government. bullshit just admit it you don’t know what your doing…….anyone wonna buy a PS3?……lol

    • Steven Van Deusen

      THIS JUST SUCKS,you go out and spend 400 dollars on a set,and can’t fully enjoy.I’m sick of the B.S Sony is telling us or not telling us.But i’m true to ps3 so i’ll stick it out.but come on sony get your shit together

    • rafa

      ya i dont think sony will have the network and all back up on may 31 i bet they will have it back online till next year or 2 years i should have fixed my xbox than getting a ps3 all sony does is make false announcements and gets things done if they get something out of it

  • Kyle

    Ok first off saburwolf shut the fuck up. So it’s all just free. I paid 350 for my ps3 + 50-60$ each game. And you are saying it was all free? Wow you just need to not post. We are pissed off because our company the we use to play this shit are failing. They are making themselves look like shit. Saying that it will be back then saying no, another 30 days. Is a very very bad business move. Millions of people will switch to xbox. So shut your dumb Fucking mouth cause I’m pretty sure that I pay for these games to play them with other people. They made games to go strictly to online. So yes we are pissed off. I’m only staying with Sony because I don’t want to have to get 30 platinum trophies for 360. Fuck that

    • SABURWOLF73

      Ok since you want to be a cry baby. You need to chill out and go change your pampers. I’m talking about the network asshole. I know how much a game is duh. Playstation makes most of the money off the playstation store ass hole. So put that passey back in your mouth wait for the server is back up and operational. Because there are people like you who dont have a life collection unemployment that sit on there ass all day playing games.

      • Og

        HEY! I collecting unemployment.I use to work at the playstation store. ;)

        • SABURWOLF73

          lol @ Og

      • catbird

        yeah..yeah..yeah dnt forget the network is on in japan they are playing but we cant. this is all crap. if you know there is a group called Anonymous that hacks in to peoples stuff then why havent you arrested the whole group they are all criminals. if they were all in jail this crap would never happen. iam not goin to buy a x-box but iam going to get a battle converter and play on my friends x-box with my ps3 controler.

        • MARICON JACKSON

          IM GONNA LOOK INTO THAT CONVERTER.

    • Og

      Uh,did your system stop working?or just your online capabilities?The ps3 and games are still worth what you paid for them,the only thing your missing is a 12yr old firing an R.P.G. up your arse.It took 2 years of testing to develop and implement the PSN so I can’t imagine they can fix this in a week.You can go to the xbox with the rest of the juice box crowd,the serious gamers will enjoy the lack of sophmoric chatter on the psn.btw,I don’t think you can classify this as a “business move”.take this time to read a book and educate yourself on what the ppl your bashing are trying to do,it’s some pretty complex script.

      • SABURWOLF73

        Agreed. I feel that the people who are doing all the complain have no lives. The PS3 can do more than play glitches, campers and internet gangsters online. It’s a full entertainment system if you want to play games just put a disk in and complete campaign mode for those who aren’t sports inclined. Or don’t have a gym in your local area, heck take your dog for a walk..
        I agree with Og.

        • MARICON JACKSON

          GOING TO THE GYM, PLAYING SPORTS OR WALKING YOUR DOG ARE NOT GONNA KEEP YOUR IDENTITY AND YOUR INFO AWAY FROM THESE CRIMINALS.

          • SABURWOLF73

            Thats why you dont put information about your self in any account that open to the world. like I said before I didn’t post my information on my ps acccount. just for this reason. Hackers.

          • TheRog

            You shouldn’t have been so careless to store your PII on their network.

      • nate youngman

        finally someone with an iota of fucking sense, these are my thoughts exactly! i can’t believe people think you can go through that much code and FIX it in a week. i’m personally glad we’ll be rid of all these fickle little shits on psn from now on. btw? the only thing this has done to affect me is to give me time to lose the beer belly i’ve been growing playing games.

  • http://google.com Daniel

    I HATE U SONY IM GETTING AN XBOX

  • Gerry

    Good let all the babies leave to xcrap less jerks to deal with when the network comes back up

    • i agree

      even tho psn is down i will still be loyal

    • LadyLove

      That was dumb.

  • MIke

    Yeah and for SOE things are even more complicated. Those services are down too AND Sony let the billing cycle go through on the cards, on accounts that cannot be canceled or modified, on their unsecure network.

  • lukeskywalker

    R U FREAKIN SERIOUS…I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN SONY! I HAVE BEEN A DEDICATED CUSTOMER FOR YEARS, AND THIS IS HOW IT ALL ENDS. I CAN’T BELIVED HOW U GUYS HAVE JERKED US AROUND FOR HE PAST 3 WEEKS. I NEVER THOUGHT THE DAY WOULD COME WHEN I WOULD PURCHASE AN XBOX…BUT THE DAY HAS ARRIVED! U GUYS R DONE! I HOPE U CONTUINED TO GET HACKED U A–HOLES!!!!

    • Adam

      Sony jerked you around? The hackers jerked you around, you dumbf#ck. Pull your head out of your ass. It the hackers who are to blame. Get real.

      • scott harrison

        try the LACK AND DISREGAURD..FOR YOUR SECURITY…so its not really the hackers…jus the incompatantency of PSN and sony

        • Pyroman101321

          im prety sure the hackers are the one selling your CC on the black market not sony.

    • MARICON JACKSON

      AMEN TO THAT.

  • Jim (Taiwan)

    C’mon Sony. We own 3 PS3s, 2 that are ONLY used for online game play. We have spent a huge amount of money on our gaming set ups that are useless while PSN is down. If you,Sony, had been truthful from the start we wouldn’t be so P’ed off. So now we are left with NO PSN, VERY LITTLE INFORMATON FROM YOU, and A GAMING ROOM THAT IS NOT BEING USED!!! We are really starting to think about jumping ship and saying GOODBYE to you Sony!

    • Jo

      go to XBL and have to pay for the game and then pay to play the game online its a joke ur all jokes for complaining… Sony has put so much more shit in there product then xbox did for the same amount of money….Blu-ray,Free online gaming,Good game releases…So everyone go to xbox and play with the 4 years old on COD,Halo,and Gears of War cause thats the only three titles that barely made xbox…Sony take time to actually fix the problem instead of sending it out early and everything fails again..(xbox ring of death first released)

      • Jim (Taiwan)

        Jo, or should I say Jo(ke), we are neither PS3fans nor Xbox fans. We are COD fans. We work hard and like to come home and play online as a family. 2 of us ONLY play the CODs games as most other games don’t interest us. If you think Sony has treated us fairly then you need to wake up! Sony needs to pull their finger out and start informing us on what’s going on and just how long its gonna take. And Jo(ke), are you forgetting the YLoD? Wake up little PS3 fanboy!

    • dsmxjunkY

      ha i like how SABURWOLF73 had nothing better to do other than reply to everyones hate nessage to sony, guy give it a rest

  • Zachary

    i can wait as long as necessary. i have other things i can do to keep my mind off this. im not worried in the slightest, and i agree with Gerry the more people that go to xbox the less people on psn. its a win win as far as i see it.

  • Mark

    Holy**** that’s it I’m divorcing with Sony, xbox will you marry me ?

    • Zachary

      preacher: do you take this gamer to be your lawful wedded husband

      • MARICON JACKSON

        EH!

  • MS

    QQ more… Some of you complain too much about not being able to use your FREE services for a few days… And those of you that want to get rid of your Sony equipment, feel free to send it my way! Ive used Sony electronics since I was a kid, and it has ALWAYS been high quality products… Unlike Microsoft mass produced and overpriced equipment… (I have an xbox as well, and even work on microsoft products for a living) I garauntee if XBL was targeted by someone as efficient as anonymous, (not to accuse anon) XBL would be downed… Internet security is the highest vulnerability and to a point, unpredictable…

    • Zachary

      what i dont understand is all these people that say they are boycotting sony are still commenting on a sony related issue lol if they were that mad they wouildnt be here commenting on it.

  • wakside

    all you people that say it not sony fault they got hack that is true. but it still does not mean that sony is doing a good job. this is excessive that the network is still down that they had no back up plan for situation like this. they cant even give a time frame when its coming back on. they dont even give daily updates which fustrates people the most. an update every two or three days is not good enough people put good money into buying games at ridcouls prices and support sony. they need to do a better job in informing people and then probaly we would be more understanding

    • Zachary

      so they arent giving daily updates so what? dont you think they would if they werent too busy trying to fix the problem. even if sony isnt use google and you can get updates from other people close to the source. geez not everything can go your way. find other things to do i have plenty of offline games i can play that are equally as fun. like dynasty warriors seven and borderlands. and even some ps2 games. play some of those there are plenty of other options.

      • wakside

        its a mutli million dollar company they have pr people for that reason. and just cause you entertain yourself witht the boring games you play dont mean the next person buys the same games you so should think before you speak cause your making self sound ignorant

        • Zachary

          ok i was trying to be nice but you called me ignorant so i will say it like this. bitch and moan about something else because you whining isnt going to make things go any faster. get an xbox get a girlfriend, hell get a life for that matter i do other things besides game. i bowl i get laid i do something with my life. you bitching because you cant play online is rather pointless like i said there are other things you can do.

          • Zachary

            and i didnt say that people buy the same games as me all im saying is there are other things or other games to play

          • wakside

            your funny you are talking i am the one who needs a life. but yet you sit here arguing with people bragging about how you have stuff to do other games to play. but your patroling blogs putting your two cents in on every post calm you ass down. you sure its you that dont have life. its just ridocouls the one with nothing better to do is always the first to say you dont have a girl or no life grow up

      • willtrue

        Do you really think the Techs update the public? That is why you have PR spokespeople you Dumb Ass! Sony is a joke a really big joke! Everyones focus is all wrong, Sure the online service is down and That REALLY sucks but it is the complete disreguard for PSN’s'users and all of their FUCKING PERSONAL INFO.And to ask for a truthful daily update on what the hell their plan is to me isn’t a whole lot to ask for.GET YOUR SHIT together SONY. As for me I will just go back to work and give the customer service that the public deserves.

        • Zachary

          yeah especially when you have to say welcome to Mcdonalds can i take your order for a living. dont forget to ask if they want fries with that.

  • Gerry

    All you guys can do is bitch get a life go play some outdoor stuff. If you want to shoot something get a paintball gun go out with some friends if you have any and play you probably could use the exercise.

    • Zachary

      Preach it Gerry

  • Mike

    This is Bullshit XBL here I come.

    • Zachary

      ok well when you have trouble with that dont come here to cry about it lol

  • Pete

    The outage doesn’t bother me half as much as loosing exclusive ps3 titles like Devil May Cry 4, MGS 4 and others plus Tekken 6 and GTA IV were the biggest let downs in gaming history, plus ps3 crashes itself all the time, it has a shoddy browser, the slim version cant play fifa11 without micro freezing, sony took away ps2 backwards compatibility and ability to install other OS, they’ve even lied countless times about 1080p games that aren’t and when upscaled look worse, i’ve had 5 systems all die the same way but I am still loyal dispite all this. I think sony tried too hard to please too many whilst microsoft stuck to what it does best delivering no nonsense gaming. I’m with you all the way sony and will not stop playing ps3 even dispite everything i just ranted about mainly cos i spent so much on it but also because Demons souls is exclusive and uncharted trilogy, I think the ps3 exclusives are top notch and worth the experience no matter what – thats considering you can play them how you want to???

    • Zachary

      i have a backwards compatible ps3 got it at gamestop for $321.13. it cost the same as a brand new one but i still like it.

      • Pete

        Thats good news for you Zach I’m glad you’re happy, I couldn’t afford that model when it came out so waited till late 2008 to get the 40, 4 systems with dead blu ray drives later and last one out of warranty i ended up buying a 120gb slim which crashed on its own the first time i started it (shoddy browser!) ALL I WANT FROM SONY IS TO STOP LYING TO ITS CUSTOMERS, oh and a better browser please!! Supporting Sony is a bit like being an Arsenal fan, I know, I do both.

        • Zachary

          yeah the browser does run too slow but i dont usually use it anyway.

  • jobber

    I understand why this is taking so long, why the fuck don’t all you whiny bastards go and buy an x-box and regret it when psn returns. Sony ps3 is the best console by far. Maybe if the whiners had jobs or had actual friends especially girlfriends they wouldn’t be bitching and moaning on here. Do you really think sony give a fuck if you leave them? seriously!? you must be thick as fuck if you do. You will never get a refund so you have already gave them your money, may I add for quality games and DLC. I’m with sony down until the very end. FUCK XBOX HAIL SONY I’m out bitches, go and get laid you will feel much better.

    • Zachary

      lol

    • MARICON JACKSON

      MAYBE I’LL KEEP MY PS3 IN STORAGE JUST IN CASE MY NEW SHITBOX FAILS. HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA!

  • wakside

    some people are very ignorant. the ones that say the network is free we have nothing to complain for. the last time i check the games aren’t free. the games they market for online play is not free. hard earn money is spent on those

    • Zachary

      true but you have to think that some people dont think like that

  • wermach

    Sony you could have handled this better.I am a loyal PS3 gamer. So loyal My son has an Xbox right in the next room.It’s been three weeks without my PS3 And I still haven’t tryed the xbox.Sony take as long as you need! hopefully we can weed out all the non loyals.Call of duty on the playstation network is the closest you will find to a real firefight. Xbox sucks. Sony get me runnin and gunnin again!

    • Zachary

      amen brother lol. i havent looked into black ops is it any good? im not good at shooting games though

  • Jay

    Fact – Sony should have been better prepared
    Fact – They weren’t, but who is, all security measures are only a deterrent. A determined hacker will get past anything eventually.
    Fact – Apparently the hackers are doing this to protect OUR civil rights! What a sack of $hit!

    Much as I love playing online, I can wait and I won’t be jumping on the bandwagon to line Bill Gates pockets further. Don’t be surprised if Xbox is next on the list of hacking targets. Those of you who quit ps3 could well be doing just what the hackers want and could quite easily be being herded like mindless sheep to the slaughter, that well be xbox live going down, then where will you be??

    • Zachary

      up a creek without a paddle lol

  • Pissed

    Bye Sony!!!!!! This is to much, hello xbox!!

  • mel

    Im a stay at home mom og four kids, I love to play the ps3. But with the network down doesnt mean its the end of the world. All of you freaking wine a** people need to grow up. Its rediculous to complain the way you do. Appearently you guys need to do some growing up bc only kids cry when they dont get what they want.

        she has four kids not three but i see your point

  • cb

    See you Sony. Kiss my A$$. I Just bought my ps3 recently too after the 1st one broke. Will never buy anything from sony again, and neither will and of my family or friends. peace.

  • blakjakal

    people just dont realize the importance of monwy in this day and age for all of the people switching to xbox think about this, youll have to buy all of those game you own now all over again not to mention the extra controller you have to buy (if your getting it from a store ) this is gonna run you a couple hundred bucks if you have a lot of games like me i couldnt switch even if i want to i got other things to worry about then a video game system. alot of people are whining about the network being down and switching to xbox my god you cant go a few months without a video game wow that must mean you really have absolutly nothing to do in your life but play call of duty all day and drink mountain dew. lol but in all seriousness im stickin with sony because i couldnt switch even if i wanted to moneys to important to waste on video games in my life.

    Its funny to see so many people complaining about a FREE service, and so many people are acting like they will die if they don’t get to play their video games for a month, here is an idea, go outside once in a while and quit stairing at your TV waiting for the network to come back on.

      Nothing in life is free,especially PSN

      • jay

        How is it not, I didn’t even put my real info in and I played online games without a problem and didn’t pay for it, I think that would classify as free.

        • MARICON JACKSON

          NOTHING IS FREE IN THIS WORLD MY DEAR JAY.

          • jay

            Really? Then how is paying nothing not free? Amswer me that.

          • MARICON JACKSON

            DID SONY COME TO YOUR DOOR AND SAY “HERE, HAVE THIS PS3 AND PLAY ONLINE FOR FREE”?

    • sig20jim

      Listen say what you want, “its free, “go outside” etc. whatever. I want to play online games PERIOD. SONY has failed at that and caused me a lot of hassle having to cancel my credit card going online to my paperless billing accounts and changing the credit card information etc. Stay loyal if you want I’m done. SONY screwed up way beyond major and has lost my trust and I dont feel wrong saying that. I sold my PS3 over the weekend, games,controllers,bluetooth etc for $400 on craigslist. Gamestop is a rip off always has been. Walmart Xbox $199 with $50 mail in rebate. Purchased alot of of my old games for new Xbox at a fraction of the cost because theyve been out a while. Its not about the wait as much as the loss of trust with SONY.

        If all you think xbox is safe just becuase this only happened to ps3 so far you are dead wrong!! It was on MSNBC and CNN news that this is the next generation of identity theft. So go ahead and get your xbox, think everything is gonna be ok from now on. Spend more of your moommy and daddys money on a new system, that now will cost something every month to play the same games. You’ll be fine…..no realy. Then in a couple months from now when the rest of us are enjoying the imroved security on ps3, we will get to come to xbox sites and troll all your crying about microsoft geting hacked. Point is noone with personal info on a internet is safe from the criminals that seek ways to exploit it! period. To think diffrently, or think $10 a month is going o save us from it is just a false sence of security.

  • Uriel Johnson

    I dont care about ps home. I just need the network back on i miss playing black ops. But Im tryin to get my XBOX 360 fixed

  • Agent .25i

    ur all a bunch of little girls… especially the douche that wrote this article. “may” be down. May the opperative word here ppl. No official announment frm sony. nothing. Just some four eyed douche with a desire to rack up hits and spread fear to the stupid.
    And u fucks that cry cause of personal info, how we werent notified right away… wanting compensation. its a game system noobs… if u had ur CC info in there u deserve to have it lifted.
    “these gestures of good will wil not suffice” what the fuck does this mean? ur lucky sony is willing to do anything you asshats. you signed an EUA… reead it. they dont have to do anything and anything theyare doing is out of the goodness of their hearts. Not becaiuse a bunch off fat ignorant useless american douchjebags want something for nothing. You see a chance ad jump right for the throat.
    fuck you all. and fuck this story nad fyuck any douce that is trying to exploit this.
    GFY’s all of you.

    • Zachary

      hey now im american and skinny and im not a douchebag lol but i do agree with you.

    • scott harrison

        • Zachary

          and in his defense i think he’s british

          • Bigbru

            Well that explains alot, bad grammar, bad attitude! I’m guessing some teenager from Europe who doesn’t have a clue about us Americans.

    • http://www.ientry.com/ Josh Wolford

      All references to dates are either from the PS blog or out of the mouth of a Sony spokesperson. Nothing was just “made up.”

      And when a major company has one of its major services down for weeks and possibly more, it’s news – and by the looks of all these comments, people care.

      I will be sure to put in my contacts for my next photo, though. Just for you.

      • Zachary

        hes just another dude on his man period. don’t pay him any mind. it was a well written article.

        • jay

          Josh don’t let him get to you, it is news and it is a well written article.

      • Bigbru

        Don’t pay him any mind, just some teenage punk who’s pissed off at life. Nice article Josh

  • JM76

    Take your time sony.. I can’t be upset for you taking down a system I don’t pay a membership to.. Unlike Xbox 360 where you will have to sign up for xbox live.. by the way Microsoft don’t let you know when it’s time for your membership to renew they will renew your membership 2 months before time to renew with out asking you..

    I don’t see nothing wrong with my system I can still play the my games I just have to have my friends over to play with me..

    So I will stay with sony

    and wait

    My 2 cents

    • scott harrison

      i bet your friend come and play with you

  • igors

    Who ever crys over ps3 network is down,they are freaks and geeks on PS3 who doesnt have a life lol

  • repo_man

    I am so happy to hear all these people getting rid of their PS3′s for an Xbox! Online game play will be so much better once the network is back up and all these whiners are on a completely different system. Sony isn’t worried about their minimum wage consumer who uses free services, they’re concerned about people like me with the financial means to purchase products like their TV’s and laptops. Go back to the basement and wait for Mommy to call you up for dinner.

    • Zachary

      good shit bro.

    • dr asssmacker187

      True!!!! Ww

    • dr asssmacker187

      True!!!!

  • brian brayb

    i hope it comes up before the escalation map pack comes out for ps3

  • Og

    Let’s have an intelligent conversation,i’ll talk,you listen.I’ve been online with Sony since the net adapter came out for the ps2.This is the first significant problem.The amount of time I spent playing online FOR FREE(having a blast) far exceeds the amount of time the psn has been down.Sony’s “welcome back” program and fraud/identity protection plan completely compensates the users of PSN and then some.Any services your paying for will be extended and any damages reimbursed.Sony stumbled,because some parasites stuck their foot out,this shoudn’t be an excuse to whine until you get something for free from a company who has,and continues to, provide us with so much free.Sony’s delay in informing it’s customers was an investigative decision,I don’t have a problem with that,Heads must roll.But let’s make sure we hit the right neck.I for one will wait until the network returns,with my new credit card in hand.Anyone who decides to join the xcrement box army,we’ll miss you….until you realize your mistake,then we will welcome you back with some friendly bursts of automatic fire.

    • Zachary

      but for now we wont miss them in the slightest

      • Rin

        OMG remeber the hard drive attachment lol(ps2)
        I had/still have that wow the strength of that machine.
        I don’t see the XBOX surving that long, O wait sorry I sold mine and went back to PS3 so I wouldn’t know if it would last.
        Now off to work before I start bashing all the PS3/Sony bashers.
        Get a life y’all ship jumpers, maybe now with the spare time you can get yourselves a job, buy yourself lives, and buy yourself some real friends.
        ha ha ha ha :P
