Update 4/26: See Jay’s Post here!!

Update 4/25:
“I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.

As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.”

Update 4/23 11 PM Eastern:
“We sincerely regret that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been suspended, and we are working around the clock to bring them both back online. Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.
We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.”

Update 4/22 7:45 : Here’s the latest straight from the official PSblog:

“An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.”

Update 4/21: It looks like the PSN maybe down for up to two days. They are not officially stating a reason, but many rumors, including attacks by ANNONYMOUS, have surfaced.

This was Posted today by by Patrick Seybold, here on the official PSblog:

“While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, 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. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can.”

Original Post:

The PSN is experiencing a lot of different errors tonight, 4/20. I was signed in, and trying to get into the PS Store told me, “Your attempt to add funds automatically to your wallet has failed.” As of now, 10:45 PAC, I can’t sign in. Others are also reporting issues.

A Post on the official PSBlog has this to say:

“Update on PSN Service Outages
+ Posted by Patrick Seybold // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media
We’re aware certain functions of PlayStation Network are down. We will report back here as soon as we can with more information.

Thank you for your patience. ”

    I got signed out yesterday but then I could sign right back in. didn’t have any other problems

  2. #2 by brett on April 21st, 2011

    This would not happen with Microsoft

  3. #3 by premiersoupir on April 21st, 2011 [ 17020 Points ]

    It appears as if this downtime wasn’t a result of an Anonymous attack, right? Anyway, annoying, as my wife and I were going to watch a movie on Netflix. But we have a media server by means of which I can stream video, movies, Hulu, Netflix, and so on to my PS3, so it was easy enough to circumvent the problem. I feel sorry for people who’d set up gaming dates, though!

  4. #4 by Jane 22 on April 21st, 2011

    I can’t sign into psn at all today, was fine yesterday but today is a whole new story!! Hate when I can’t get my COD on!!

    brett:

    ^

    umm yes it could? lol If these are DDOS attacks…it would work the same on XBL.

    Anyways…this doesn’t look like a DDOS attack but I wouldn’t rule out some sort of hacking going on.

  6. #6 by WakYasuk on April 21st, 2011 [ 140 Points ]

    Well a day or two without psn as they say…

    http://playstationlifestyle.net/2011/04/21/psn-brought-down-by-an-outside-party-but-anonymous-claims-innocence/

    anonymous is not taking credit. However insider info is stating a new group is doing it bc they disagree with Anonymous’s soft stance on taking PSN down……f’ing great…

    premiersoupir: Anyway, annoying, as my wife and I were going to watch a movie on Netflix

    You can still use netflix without being singed in because the PS3 is still getting an internet connection, just has DNS problems when trying to access PSN. It’s just on Netflix, you gotta try logging in and after it fails, just exit the login screen and you’ll be in your instant queue, etc. I think mine made me attempt to sign in twice, but I still got to use it, since it still successfully accesses Netflix

    Interesting — I guess I didn’t proceed that far. I was prompted three times to log in to PSN, so then I gave up and pulled up the media server. If I have this trouble again, I’ll follow your instructions and be more persistent. Thanks!

  10. #10 by Sakinah on April 21st, 2011 [ 26489 Points ]

    Some people are saying it has to do with a problem in Japan and not hackers. The US PS blog says PSN could be down for 48 hours.

    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/04/21/latest-update-on-psn-outage/

  11. #11 by xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux on April 21st, 2011 [ 2160 Points ]

    Like for real if this has to with more hackers, all I have to say is to get a life. Like Anonymous learned that it was the players that were being hurt the most, now this group comes in to mess with us again.
    Like my parents are leaving soon, so I was like o snap i could play while they gone, now like wtf i can’t cuz no PSN availability like wtf. On top of that I was up till like 4 playin CO-OP by myself in KZ3 to get the PLAT lol I know playing alone but hello, now I can’t sync with servers. Um I wasted my sleep. GOSH. And now it being down for 48 hours. like wtf. Tomorrows Friday the day I can go all out with friends and play online. LIKE WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. #12 by Eddie on April 21st, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    Submitting credit card details will allow you to use PSN again

    http://anonops.net/channels

    dunno if they are joking or serious…but they are playing it up…

    That is such bs. SONY will patch that too in this maintenance when they here of this. If its true

  14. #14 by Eddie on April 21st, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    I think what Sakinah said is most likely the truth in the matter actually.

  15. #15 by Jason on April 21st, 2011 [ 26376 Points ]

    I cant sing in at all. very annoying

  16. #16 by Jay on April 21st, 2011 [ 83111 Points ]

    I don’t think Anonymous has anything to do with this. I deleted the ANNONYMOUS comment, because that faker can’t even spell his own username right.

  17. #17 by frank on April 21st, 2011

    last night my online speeds were very slow that has never happened to me does any 1 no what caused this

    4/20/11

  18. #18 by mrhost918 on April 21st, 2011

    too the person who said this would not happen to Microsoft better think again anything is possible but not likely to happen because they are premium payed servers were the PlayStation servers are not, I’m a PlayStation fanboy so although this is very disappointing this is what we get for free servers we will just have too wait for further updates

  19. #19 by dave on April 21st, 2011

    to that person that said this would never happen to 360 (Microsoft) anything with a harddrive and internet can be hacked into etc… thats just the way it is, if the ps3 or 360 didnt have internet and or a hardrive this kinda thing would never happen, how can you hack a computer or a console without internet? lol its impossible, its just the way it is and I wish Sony and Microsoft can find out who does this and pin point the user name and or IP address were these hacks are taken place ether here USA or accross seas.

  20. #20 by Eddie on April 21st, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    DDOS attacks are not hacks….anyone of us could do it. You download a javascript program, enter in an IP address and hit a button…the end. Sadly it will take down virtually any site including PSN and XBL.

  21. #21 by Laughable on April 21st, 2011

    #2 This can and HAS happened to Microsoft in the past. Just a year ago or so now, XBL was down for a few days. So you can just shut up with the fanwank crap.

  22. #22 by Cuatoloko116 on April 21st, 2011

    Please Sony fix the problem I don’t want another day without playin online it’s really boring playing without a sever

  23. #23 by Darklurkr23 on April 21st, 2011 [ 23156 Points ]

    I’m crossing my fingers for a “sorry this happened here’s a free game” response :D Still sad to hear. I can’t redeem my SWARM!

  24. #24 by Obliviate on April 22nd, 2011

    it was an attack by annonymous but they never intended to my sony make our life boring. it is sony we should be angry with

  25. #25 by Obliviate on April 22nd, 2011

    sony probably will not put psn on till 23rd witch suckes because for the last day ive been waiting to go 25ep to prestige on black ops.

  26. #26 by Bugs on April 22nd, 2011

    I wonder when this issue is going to be rectified. What a wicked time to be having issues when there is a long holiday.

  27. #27 by halfbakedj12 on April 22nd, 2011 [ 200 Points ]

    With the PSN being free it sucks but well it’s not like you are paying for the service. Sony provides it for free. If this happened on XBL I would be pretty pissed since I would actually have to pay for it and there for I expect it to work 24/7 365 anytime I wanna play.

  28. #28 by Eddie on April 22nd, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    Obliviate: it was an attack by annonymous but they never intended to my sony make our life boring. it is sony we should be angry with  

    no it wasn’t

    no we shouldn’t

    We have no idea what is going on yet. The only thing we should be upset about is Sony’s lack of communication. Until we find out everything, its all assumption.

  29. #29 by Mike on April 22nd, 2011

    I hate this i finally get a turtle beach px21 the day it goes down. But what ever please get it back up and running soon, i would be happy if you did.

  30. #30 by Markus on April 22nd, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    I’ve been having a blast with KZ3. So I’m itching to get back on!

    If this has something to do with the earthquake and tsunamis that recently hit Japan then I don’t mind the outage. Sony can take as long as they need.

    However, if this due to hackers or anything else, Sony needs to get things back up and running asap… Like yesterday asap imo…

  31. #31 by Mike on April 22nd, 2011

    Ohhhh actually i take tht comment back its like midnight here thats why its not up and running so weight til like midnight

  32. #32 by FooBear408 on April 22nd, 2011 [ 17244 Points ]

    i’m not pleased with the current situation.

  33. #33 by dave on April 22nd, 2011

    still cant sign in to my acct. is anybody still haveing problems like me still? its now 530pm on 4/22/11 but have a friend that can sign in theirs to watch netflex and it worked on theirs today, so I wonder if its out just in center regions in parts of USA, let me know if you are haveing the same thing thanks.

  34. #34 by Jcmdaddy on April 22nd, 2011 [ 64797 Points ]

    I DON’T KNOW HOW I’M GOING TO LIVE WITHOUT INTERNET CONNECTIVITY ON MY PS3 FOR A FEW DAYS! D:

    Actually I do. Yes I know it’s annoying that it’s down, regardless of why, I can see the inconvenience. I just find it strange with the people angry with Sony, like some guy pumped a switch that caused a million dollar ‘whoopsy’. I can see the outrage over the speculation of hackers, which is justifiable, it’s everyone else on other forums that flip out and go “IAM GET XBOX CUZ SOW KNEE PHALES!” -_- that’s ridiculous.

    It’s that instant gratification attitude! Single player peeps! Do it.

  35. #35 by Ravenitrius on April 22nd, 2011 [ 1275 Points ]

    I’m not worried about living without Internet on the ps3. I have the computer. Course if the internet goes out on the computer. I probably run around screaming bloody hell. But since that’s not happening, I have the PC for PC gaming and what not. I actually wanted to get stuff off the ps store but that will wait until it’s fixed.

  36. #36 by Mike on April 22nd, 2011

    Pull it together please, i hav waited all day cuz you said one to two days, well i got a news flash for you its been 2 days. SO GO

  37. #37 by quentinsarff on April 22nd, 2011 [ 255 Points ]

    That’s stupid!!! It still doesn’t work !!!

    As Jay pointed out in an earlier comment, NETFLIX CAN BE WATCHED… it runs over the internet, and has no bearing on if you are signed in or not.

  39. #39 by Emrah on April 23rd, 2011 [ 7319 Points ]

    Still, no go. This is getting a bit frustrating!

  40. #40 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    Oly,

    right thanks yeah dont know y I put that up.

  42. #42 by BLOODYICECREAM on April 23rd, 2011 [ 374 Points ]

    So…at least three big ‘things’ have crashed recently (Amazon, Reddit, PSN) …coincidence???

  43. #43 by Eddie on April 23rd, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    hackers running wild. Hopefully they get their asses handed to them when they are caught.

  44. #44 by Otwizt on April 23rd, 2011

    This is ridiculous, I’m goin to gamestop and trading in my ps3 for a xbox

  45. #45 by Fanboy on April 23rd, 2011

    Sad but true. my playstation plus membership :-(
    I hope that everything is save for any ps3 gamer. we must trust the whole playstation tech-team.

  46. #46 by Dude16 on April 23rd, 2011

    Otwizt, I might also. But whoever hacked this I’m going to find them and they’ll be sorry

  47. #47 by Mark on April 23rd, 2011

    Okay. You guys really can stfu with the “IMGETTINGANXBOX!!! RAARGGH”. We dont care. And you wont do it. You act like sony gives a damn what you do.

  48. #48 by Maxpowerfreak on April 23rd, 2011

    The main An0n didn’t act and as anything to do with this! But some no life could have easily done it from his basement in his mom’s house…

  49. #49 by Ben on April 23rd, 2011

    Hahaha. Real truth is. Sony got baked on the job and screwed up

  50. #50 by Markus on April 23rd, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    Still down! *sob*

  51. #51 by Jason on April 23rd, 2011 [ 26376 Points ]

    Id remove your credit card info asap. Also for those complaining its been down for me for 5 days now with one log in attempt lasting 15 minutes so quit your complaining.

  52. #52 by premiersoupir on April 23rd, 2011 [ 17020 Points ]

    Jason: Id remove your credit card info asap.

    Remove card info from where? PSN has my card info saved so that I don’t have to enter it every time I buy something. Is that what you are referring to? And do you have reason to believe that the attackers have gained or will gain access to that sort of info?

    I should really open a new checking account just for digital purchases, so hacking damage could be minimized. You’d think I’d have learned my lesson, as several years ago someone cleared out my bank accounts by hacking my online banking account. Happily, the bank covered those losses.

  53. #53 by Eddie on April 23rd, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    Its rumored that some personal information has been obtained. Its also rumored that the attacks are coming from Europe, UK specifically I believe.

    Also…interview with anonymous. FBI issued 40 arrest warrants.

    I think these are really stupid like for real um the thing that happened with mastercard and support for wikileaks was fine, but like SONY, there is nothing wrong in SONY, its all business and they are trying to keep themselves up.

  56. #56 by Eddie on April 23rd, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    apparently a hack came out this month that adds infinite funds to your wallet as well.

  57. #57 by Oly on April 23rd, 2011 [ 132360 Points ]

    Infinite funds would be nice!!
    LOL

    Don’t you people have games to play that aren’t dependent on the PSN?

  58. #58 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    shut I had about $8.00 on my wallet wonder if Ill lose that with the infinite funds, and the personal info. leck I dont thank you need to go and change your your acct. numbers at your bank and if FBI sent out 40 arrest warrants to anonymous lol I like the vid. were he says we r everyone etc… lol this is not fight club and then if they did this Y would you hack a ps3? has nothing to do with goverments like you said in the vid. lol will if FBI is on it and I thank somewere they said in the vid. that they coundnt find us all well maybe not but they would get the big wigs.

  59. #61 by Nick on April 23rd, 2011

    I think im gonna get an xbox! You guys said it will take 2 days and now your extended it like whats the point now! Our long weekend and double xp are gone!

  60. #62 by Dude16 on April 23rd, 2011

    @Matt, sorry, we didn’t realize you were on your period. I guess our opinions don’t matter because you live for going around trolling and acting like we care what you say. Quote us dude, we don’t care. We all know ur just a 12 year old troll. Go whine at mom to make you chickennuggets.

  61. #63 by Jason on April 23rd, 2011 [ 26376 Points ]

    Waffles: i hope my ps3 dont die this week. ive been playing ninja gaiden sigma 2 in mentor and im in master ninja now, but currently i cant synch.  

    lol your a beast! So hard. That would suck lol Youll be fine. Good job on njg2

  62. #64 by Los on April 23rd, 2011

    This is so wack, how does it take so long to resolve an issue like this. Aren’t they prepared for such?

  63. #65 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    @los,

    yeah but maybe not like this, what it sounds like these hacks pretty much killed the psn just wiped it out, it will proberly be down for a week are longer and I hope Sony will fix it for something like this cant happen again, I wonder if your trophies will be gone are some will be gone etc… and what ever you had in your wallet I wonder if that will be gone? I had 8.00 but also I have a recept that shows my wallet amount after the last thing I got on psn so I would just call Sony and fax or mail them proof, but I thank in a year or two this will happen to Sony again, remember hackers ONLY DO THIS TO PISS YOU OFF NOT SONY and they are winning cause of all this crap people say lol Iam guilty too of being piss off thats the point of Y hacks happen, will at lease thats what I thank.

  64. #66 by -_- on April 23rd, 2011

    wow really they better gift something free after they fix it xD

  65. #67 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    @#66,

    Sony dont have to do that its a free service not XBL, also people saying they better give us a free game lol uhhh a free game come on thats just dumb to thank that what if Sony was a paid service would people still want a free game? love to see how people will like it if Sony said ok ok its now 50.00 a year like XBL lol people would be piss about that too, the thing people dont realize its a free service and ps3 has better games out meaning exclusive games they come out with exclusive characters like the new MK game with Kratos etc… but people still not happy with the ps3, oh oh they better give us a free game, ps3 is so much better the 360 I mean more exclusive games and exclusive characters and dont forget the blue ray player, and they dont do very much of on the 360 and its not a blue ray player its HD DVD player and again still people not happy with the ps3 and yes this hack sucks bad and Ill be happy when its back up and running. you better hope ps3 doesnt say ok people we will no longer have PSN or online play sorry about that we hope people wont be mad again sorry and they can do that if these hacks keep F@#$%^& up their PSN, what r u going to do if they do that?

  66. #68 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    oh did I say if Sony does gives us a free game people still would not be happy about that, they would want this and that and guess what people would still say Sony sucks bluh bluh what they did for us just sucks lol Iam just saying that it would be like that, it the simple truth people are not happy about this and they woundnt be happy if they got free game out of it of what ever.

  67. #69 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    for got to say, this is too all that wants something out of this psn problem its not Sonys fault it the hackers fault, so Sony does not have to give any free of anything.

  68. #70 by dave on April 23rd, 2011

    hope people will realize what Sony or the PSN does and gives you compare to xbox 360 or XLB.

  69. #71 by Ace on April 23rd, 2011 [ 23465 Points ]

    OH MY GAWD! I’m sick of all the trolls saying: “I’m buying a 360 now.” Like seriously, SHUT UP! Sony knows what they’re doing. Clearly, this terrible outage has info none of us know about..so until we get more info, just chill out, go outside, clean your room or something. But seriously stop trolling damnit.

  70. #72 by Tyler on April 23rd, 2011

    If you ask me this is bs that it took psn engineers 3 days to figure out what was going on when they can just look on the guys website on what he did to u guys. Work smart not hard. I’m switching to xbox for the reason. Shouldn’t listened to gamestop

  73. #75 by Los on April 23rd, 2011

    Thinking about getting a Xbox too just to hold me over, then I’ll donate it to some poor unfortunate child when psn is back.

    I was joking :lol:

    People saying they are switching to XBOX because of this are starting to get annoying.. just switch already.. we don’t need to hear about it

  75. #77 by JCMoorehead on April 24th, 2011 [ 550 Points ]

    No one should switch from anything to anything just because the online service is down. Go and play a single player game, go outside, do something else you don’t need online gaming that badly, remember those things we used to do before consoles were online?

    As for this hack issue, I kind of feel it was only a matter of time before it happened to either Sony or Microsoft. It’s a shame it has happened, a shame for the fans, for the staff involved because when you remove the lawyers and and the management and the guys in corporate a lot of the people working on these infrastructures are gamers like us.

    Also getting a big laugh out of the people who are crying “Microsoft are behind it” and actually being serious about it.

  76. #78 by Emrah on April 24th, 2011 [ 7319 Points ]

    Ok, still no go, and this is called incompetence. Is Sony the first service to be hacked? I can’t think of any other international company to stop services this long. At least I haven’t heard of any..

  77. #79 by Markus on April 24th, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    Still down *sigh*

  78. #80 by Andrew on April 24th, 2011

    This is absolutely ridiculous. Sony should be punished for this mishap. I propose that Sony immediately offers all and every available skin for any and every character on MK9. All my friends have been playing online MK9 on xbox360 and yet I have been unable to. The servers were up for a matter of hours, literally. I played 2 ranked matches online, winning one, and losing the other. I stayed up all night playing the story mode for MK9, falling asleep at 9am EST on the 21st. Waking up mere 6hrs later excited to continue unlocking new achievements and being awarded new trophies and I was unable to connect. I thought there was something wrong with my internet. After checking the router I discovered it was not my service provider.
    I have been forced to settle and play this great, astounding game on xbox360 online play, which I hate. Xbox controllers suck and there is no d-pad for fast acting moves. I think Sony needs to redeem themselves and grant ALL acting PSN or even PS-Plus Subscribers a chance to purchase DLC characters skins immediately. Fix your s*&% Sony. When I screw up I at least take responsibility for it. Redeem yourselves and I’m sure we will forgive you. I would have understood if PSN was back up by now, but its not! Sad to say…but even WOW servers are up quicker than this…..tisk tisk…..

    Everyone getting an xbox…please mail me your ps3’s :) I’ll gladly take them.

    Nobody can prepare for these attacks. Anyone can be taken down. NASA, Banks, the government, the military have all fell victim to DDOS attacks before.

    Sony is rebuilding their entire worldwide servers to help prevent any damage from this. It takes time.

    Also the whole free vs paid stuff needs to stop. It makes no difference. Something happens to the service, the company will try to fix it. Paid or not.

    Ok listen up guys, I’m part of Anonymous so I’ll tell you we had nothing to do with this. We believe its just errors on SONY’s part and not the work of hackers. Though we are not 100% sure that Anonops was not involed, we highly doubt they were. It may even be possible that some rouge Anon members are responsible for this, but again its unlikely. As for the 360 fanboys, quit bragging about buying a 360, nobody here cares. Also, the people complaing about the 360 fanboys, STFU! If you want to be trolled, I’ll be more than happy to do it. PC is the superior race, so you console fanboys can give it a rest. TROLLFACE.jpg

    there is a rumour going around the us that bill gates is behind all this. This group anonymous is a bunch of geeks employed by bill gates. It had something to do with playstation releasing mortal combat, portal 2, socom and steam. He offered to buy sony a couple of years back and they didnt sell so hes resulted to do this. He timed it well over the easter weekend also when psn is down xbox live is having a free weekend and now he is getting exactly what he wants by people saying they are changing to xbox

    I’m no longer messing w psn. Bought my xbox and ready to pay for working online gaming. Better graphics on madden and other games. Tired of excuses from these Sony fools. I used to be a Sony supporter my whole life until I called THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE AVAILABLE!!!!! RUDE UNPROFESSIONAL PHONE OPERATORS TO SOME WHO HAD NO IDEA ON HOW TO HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEM(not the outage) Then this stupid outage lasting 4 freaking days that I took vac for. MAN I HATE SONY NOW, F U AND UR WACK EXCUSES!!!!!

    @sakinah if facebook was down for a week, the world would be one giant riot

  95. #97 by Andrew on April 24th, 2011 [ 115 Points ]

    What I am really worried about are the achievements that I am currently unlocking on MK9. If i beat the ladder with every character is PSN going to recognize that i have done that even though i did it while PSN was down? Also what about the 75 bucks I had on my account. PSN being down really worries me, as I am a new to PS3. Ive only enjoyed mine for the past 3 months. (320gb slim no problems, Eagle Eye on MK9 rules) Ive been on PC since I was 12…back in the day playing CS1.5 and TFC..so EE is justified. I’m just sooooo worried that my unlocks wont register.

    PS. when PSN finally comes back up..any1 who wants to try me in MK9 bring it ;).

    Wow, I haven’t touched my PS3 in about 5 days (just because of the easter, since it’s a major holiday around here) so I don’t really know where all this is coming, but wow! This post is on fire! So much going on here!

    I’ll be honest, I haven’t really read everything on the comments, but all this anonymous talk is kind of creeping me out!

    I feel everyone is really on the edge when such topic is being discussed!

  101. #104 by Eddie on April 24th, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    A rogue group of anons? Isn’t that like a double negative? And really? PSN has worked for 5 years flawlessly and all of a sudden they are having a problem and want to blame hackers for it up to and including filing false allegations to the police/fbi?

    Look I’m all about standing up for what you believe in. The anon attacks on the school of scientology and westboro I even cheered on, but the moment “collateral damage” became a factor, I realized how juvenile the group really is. I’d much rather people who assume is ok to have collateral damage just not stand up for my rights.

    I’ve also noticed that anon is mostly comprised of pc fans and while I understand they are a diverse group of people with different thoughts, it seems that console fans are highly looked down upon. This is almost a case of fanboyism taken to an extreme at times.

    Nontheless, if these are hackers doing this to psn, hope the fbi catches up to them and slap them with their 10 year sentence post haste. If its a technical problem, hope it gets fixed and Sony decides to award us with some game-age.

    I do agree with you that Anon has recently gotten a little out of hand with their protest recently, and I really don’t quite understand their problem with SONY. However, we are trying to bring Freedom & Rights to those who deserve it, like Egypt. To clear things up though, let me just say that I am not a hacker and that i don’t help them with stuff like this. I fight with words not hacks.

    I agree with Pedro eveything is on edge how in the hell did this happen? I mean what the hell but yeah its dumb to fight on this, its already done so whats the point? I just stick up for what I thank about things that r posted here on this post lol, I dont mean to be fighting here but I fell like I should say something, but most of us r guilty, and I dont usely fight on internet I mean whats the point? so I will not post no more about this. Pedro helped me out cause I didnt realize how bad it was, I dont talk much on the internet just a little bit, but I never fight on it like I did above. so sorry to all.

    I think all this is very simple…PSN crashed from a significant high user increase on 4-19 and 4-20, no pun intended. Many of us are into Socom and portal 2 but what i saw when i logged in on 4-19 and 4-20 were hundreds and hundreds of personal made rooms where people were playing Kombat. Every room from the top to about 50 rooms down were at 80-100 users. This, and other games’, high user traffic adding to the already normal traffic crashed PSN. End of story, happy waiting guys. :/

    HOWEVER I really feel people are getting very aggressive towards each other and that’s not even because of the hacker x player confront, it’s more because of the tension that was created from the discussion of that topic. People are just disappointed that’s all.

Maybe this was god saying some of us (not me) need to go out and have some fun, get some ass or something. haha just have fun enjoy life, I have both xbox and ps3 but i guess now im being punished cause im forced to play xbox Blk ops online for xbox sucks!!!! I have a 2.30 k/d on the psn, xbox 1.42 k/d goes to show u how crappy the controllers are. sigh!!!!

  117. #120 by jmajestyjersey15 on April 25th, 2011

    Eddie: But Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare didn’t crash PSN?yea…no….  

    Please pay attention to what i said…..what i said…and i quote was…that the first 50 rooms…meaning from the 1st room to the 50th room…roughly..approximately were at 100 users. Thus, all the other rooms had users in them too…A LOT of users. But when u scroll down and all u see is …
    100
    100
    100
    100
    100
    …you would think there are thousands and thousands of users on as well. And, the release of the other games. Its now confirmed that its malicious anyway…so i was wrong : /

    Your All wrong! And quite frankly, Im disappointed in all of you pot smokers that are sitting there stoned in your vegatative state wondering why your PSN isn’t connecting and completely ignored the fact that the servers went down on NONE OTHER than 4-20-11.

    This was a MASSIVE PSN SMOKEOUT in one way or another.

    I prefer my scenario that their IT Techs got so wasted on 4-20 that they mistook their servers for bongs, filled them with ice and water before they all took turns on Mary Jane’s Hard but Ample drives.

    I would have preferred that they invited some of us more seasoned IT Buffs so that we could have shown them what you can bake with some THC and an IP address. Apparently, they’re fast learners at Sony!!!

    So, in an effort to rectify this situation I am posting the name of the culprit that allowed all of these PSN partakers to complain. Now SONY must sit down and HASH this out.

    It’s YOU!

    Call your local Cannabis Club and see what secrets Sony has been learning the past 6 DAYS!!! Then smoke a fatty, play a boring ass campaign game and reminisce the days of ONLINE GAMING.

    TRUST ME, Your not alone.

    BTW,

    Lets not stroke someone else’s ego. We all know that Mary Jane and her 420 friends caused this smokeout. Until the smoke clears, lets keep it that way.

    I LOVE YOU MARY JANE. Keep up the good work pepe.
