PSN Re-launch Announcement “Up Date”


Well, were almost home everybody!
I was able to sign in after a brief update with no issues. Enjoy!

Software Update:
Most regions should be able to download the new update now, which requires users to reset their PSN passwords upon singing into the PSN.

To monitor the progress of service resumption (in the states), click here.

Update:

We’re currently experiencing an extremely heavy load of password resets, and so we recently had to turn off services for approximately 30 minutes to clear the queue.

As such, a large number of people are attempting to change their passwords at the same time, it’s taking longer than expected for all those emails to clear all of the ISPs.

If you’ve requested your password reset, please give it a bit of time to reach your email. Thanks for your patience as we work to get everyone back online.

    All this is such a tease. They shouldn’t of announced anything till it was up for real. I should be able to connect right now since they announced it’s back up. It’s not yet though.

    Nothing in canada as per the service being back up, just the update and nothing else so far.

    It may take a while even after your state has been green lit for the update, just try again in a half hour to an hour.

    It’s nice to see the official blog have some color on it and not a bunch of gray squares.

    So how long does everyone think before people start to bitch about when they are going to get their free stuff?

    Anyways, as I’ve stated before, PSN being back up doesn’t reall effect me seeing as that I have no games at the moment. Should be able to get one for my b-day here in a week or so. Just don’t know what I want.

  33. #33 by Pedro on May 15th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    Pedro: Just turned on my console and got the system update required message! We’re back!

    Seems System Update was available but PSN still in maintenance… don’t know why. Well… back to waiting.

  36. #36 by Eddie on May 15th, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    Its going down sporadically for everyone Royalty. Sony is saying emergency maintanence so we have to wait and see. Its also sporadically coming back up and down again.

  37. #37 by Jason on May 15th, 2011 [ 27516 Points ]

    lmao doesnt anybody remember when cod servers went down then everybody kept crashing them when they came back on. Imagine that times a million and you have whats going on now. Just be patient. You already waited 24 days lol

    At least this means we haven’t been forgotten! Well… I’ll just have to wait until the maintenance is over then, at least the System Update is out of the way.

  44. #44 by EdEN on May 16th, 2011 [ 136069 Points ]

    Ok, I could finally change my password on two accounts and upload my trophies. Couldn’t do it on another account because it tells me my password is incorrect (old one) which is weird. Will email Sony about it.

    Now to wait and see if we get free retail (or download) games as European PSN account holders do.

  45. #45 by Jay on May 16th, 2011 [ 83111 Points ]

    browny30: i turned on my ps3 and it couldnt log in cos of DNS error wtf!!!  

    There will likely be a few bugs for about a week. Go in to edit your settings and make the IP settings manual. DNS server can be changed. I use one of Google’s public DNS servers (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4; some just use both instead of the router) and my router (192.168.2.1). Eventually, the error will stop.

    That’s their plan. Details are to be announced probably this week
