Posted in Sony by Reuben Drake on May 31st, 2011

Sony has announced that their PlayStation Network services will be fully restored worldwide before the week is over. Except for Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea. That includes Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity.

Those in Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea have a wait still as their are still problems that need to be sorted out. Hopefully the network can stay up and stay in good health so that we can all game happily ever after.

Good news for PS3 owners in Asia. The PlayStation Network is finally coming back online. Sony has announced that it will restore the gaming network across the continent, after over a month of downtime. The company’s PSN services are already up and running in other parts of the world and tomorrow it will be back in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan.

Those in South Korea and Hong Kong still have to wait. Hopefully they get everyone gaming online again soon.

Sony PlayStation Network hacked again

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2011

This is getting ridiculous. A month ago you might have said that PSN stood for Pretty Safe Network, now it seems more like Pretty S**T Network. PSN had only just gotten back online when hackers breached it once more with a vulnerability having to do with the system’s password reset. This whole situation is crazy. They should have had some sort of plan in place for a total system meltdown in the first place.

I say we all get an extra 2 “Welcome back” games for this. If they ever get things straightened out, we may even get a full gaming session in which we can play them before it crashes again.

PlayStation Network slowly coming back online

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on May 15th, 2011

There is a great disturbance in the force. As if a million geeks suddenly sighed in relief. After about 26 days, Sony has finally announced that the PlayStation Network is slowing being restored in the U.S., starting in certain regions. A new PS3 system software update is required to change your password once the PlayStation Network is restored. The update (v3.61) is mandatory and is available now.

After the U.S. they will still have to get the service going worldwide. Find a map here to see if it has been restored in your area.

PlayStation Network down again

Posted in PS3 by Reuben Drake on April 21st, 2011

Looks like a whole bunch of users are reporting that they are unable to log in to the PlayStation Network again. This after outages that “anonymous” claimed responsibility for. Sony acknowledges that there’s a problem saying that “We’re aware certain functions of PlayStation Network are down”.

They promise an update on the situation as soon as possible. But that statement was issued over nine hours ago and there’s still no change in the situation. Hopefully they fix it soon.

Playstation Network to be down for 11 hours of maintenance

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Bad news if you were hoping to play some Killzone 3 in the next 11 hours. Sony has announced that the Playstation Network will be down for 11 hours due to required maintenance. It seems like a long time compared to how long it usually is, but maybe they have a surprise for us.

You will not be able to sign into PSN, Play games online or use the PSN store. Other than that, we don’t have any details, but if you get the message “The PlayStation Network has been suspended.” when trying to login, don’t sweat it. It doesn’t mean your account has been banned.

Hulu coming to PlayStation network soon

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2010

It’s been about 3 weeks since we heard rumors of Hulu coming to the Xbox 360 and the iPad as a paid service, and now Bloomberg is saying that Hulu is also in talks to become part of Sony’s Playstation Network and appear on the PS3 “soon.”

Soon could mean next week or next month. We don’t know. Hulu on PS3 is said to be a paid service, but nothing is confirmed yet.

PlayStation Network Updates now move to Tuesdays

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2010

Right now, Xbox Live releases content like new downloadable games on Tuesdays while PSN doesn’t offer content until Thursday. But in May, Sony will now move weekly updates to Tuesdays to compete with Microsoft.

Now you’ll be able to get content as soon as your Xbox friends so you can stick your tongue out at them and act all superior. Or if not superior at least equal. Take that Microsoft.

PlayStation Network accounts reach milestone

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on February 25th, 2009

Sony PlayStation NetworkThe Sony PS3 is one of the most popular game consoles on the market. One of the best things about the console for me is that I can use it as a Blu-ray player in addition to a gaming system. I also believe that it is one of the best Blu-ray players around thanks to the continual updates Sony adds to the Blu-ray player via downloads.

Another nice thing about the PS3 is the PlayStation Network and Sony says that the network has reached a significant milestone. After being available for two years and three months the network has exceeded 20 million registered accounts worldwide.
