PlayStation Network Maintenance Extended, Sony Plans More Updates
Adjust text size:
- Extended maintenance
Video game publisher Sony says that the planned maintenance for the PlayStation Network service is taking longer than initially expected and that service should be resumed for all users to the early hours of the morning, using clocks set to Pacific Standard Time.
The official Twitter message
reads: “PSN Maintenance update: Though estimated to end at 8pm PT tonight, maintenance has been extended to tomorrow AM. Updates as we get them.”
The company has not given any reason for the delay.
It’s also not clear why Sony scheduled the maintenance in the first place, but it might have something to do with the updates introduced to the PlayStation Store.
The PlayStation 3 might also get a new firmware update in the coming weeks and Sony might also be getting its infrastructure ready for the multiplayer-enabled God of War: Ascension.

Lol a 2 day long maintenance makes you say stupid things like this xD you're trying to scare them and think they'll be like "ooh no we are going to los a 12 year old customer D':" truth is more people are patient in this world than people on a hustle xD so calm your * and wait like everyone else ok? ok.

|Comment #7 by: who on 18 Jan 2013, 14:37 UTC|| reply to this comment|
we ALL think the exact same thing.....MONEY HUNGRY companies like sony do anything they want, WHEN they want. Sure they make HUNDRED of millions, literally to the point now theyve accrued over HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS off of us....but we arent important. What IS important, is "fixing" something that was never even "broke" in the first place. Ever heard the saying, "if it aint broke, dont fix it"? Ignore that. If you have billions, u dont NEED to think about anything other than making more money. Period.
|Comment #8 by: who on 18 Jan 2013, 14:41 UTC|| reply to this comment|
they dont care about any of us. They want money, and they do ANYTHING they want, and we just have to deal with it. They will try to use the excuse of, oh but its "free", well ya, basic service is, until they find playstation plus where they found a way to charge for their "free" internet. Oh those hundreds of billions they make.....ehhh....those millions of consumers who PAID for their products.....mehhh.....what REALLY matters, is a TWO DAY, OVER 35 hour "project" to fix a vague ps store "issue" that I assure....no one on EARTH cares about. Ya who cares about the service that makes them all that money, they need to put us on the back burner so that they can scheme up new and inventive ways of screwing us for....even MORE money, in the ps store! wooohoo! yay for capitalism and greed! hip hip, hooray!

|Comment #10 by: CARL on 18 Jan 2013, 15:59 UTC|| reply to this comment|
first off let me say this ps3 is started to suck and i used to love it! ps3 got hacked and was down for months because the security sucked and sony is just * idiots. and know my network is undergoing maintenance thats * if u idiot werent so * none of this * would be happening. also there is faulties with the playstation 3 because ive tested multiple systems you guys are brainless retards! its slow and cuts the volume out and makes scratching noises until u shut it off and everythang if these arfe the people in are future then watch out were doomed! xbox doesnt get hacked...xbox doesnt have mic problems ...and xbox doesnt freeze and do little stupid * like the ps3 and its because the person who created it wasnt a brainless idiot! IITS B.S. MAN
|Comment #10.1 by: lol on 28 Feb 2013, 23:26 GMT|
I went threw 3 Xbox 360 consoles Cuz the idiots who made it didn't know there crappy systems overheated. Only ever needed one ps3. Those Xbox 360 served better as pignatas then gaming consoles lol. I would never buy a shitbox again.

This is ridiculous, they should of atleast messaged all users to say it was going under maintainance in the first place., and the fact its taking so long is stupid what are they even fixing? Very poor lack of communication! Very disappointed

Really think Ps needs to get their ish together, they say it will be down a few hours and then I come home from work expecting to be able to play and not so much, come to find out its going to be down another 10 f*****g hour for BS maintanence for the ps store give me a break. I paid over 300$ for this * thing and I should be able to get online and play when I want not have to wait for them to do some * maint that doesn't even help the network. As well I'm tired of ps saying one time and then that expires and low and behold it is still down for a day or more after, just tell us the F*****G truth you * us off more by not being truthful with us!

Im very upset with this. Some of my friends say they can log into PSN while i cant. PSN says that you should be able to still play online during the extended maitenance but i cant.
|Comment #42 by: Tmac on 18 Jan 2013, 21:56 UTC|| reply to this comment|
This is some bs, this is why Xbox is little bit better.
|Comment #44 by: leftybubs on 18 Jan 2013, 23:37 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Well it really bites,all day and i have been unable to save anything when playing a brand new game.. They need to do the maintenance later in the morning or late at night... Very inconveinent for players....

I think they better fix all the glitchiness with Black Ops II while they have us waiting!
|Comment #51 by: FPS Man on 19 Jan 2013, 02:09 UTC|| reply to this comment|
This is a stupid move by Sony and makes me angry. They should have scheduled this earlier in the week so if there were delays it would not interfere with weekend peak hour playing. Thanks for thnking of your loyal customers. This is what happens when a company becomes so large it thinks it can do anything and get away with it. One more reason to hate Sony.

Do it on a monday, f'n morons!!!!
|Comment #53 by: tom on 19 Jan 2013, 03:02 UTC|| reply to this comment|
what the hell is up with that,we have to wait an extra day,u should comp us with something like free online games since we are all loyal playstatiion customers,it is only fair
|Comment #54 by: big shaggy on 19 Jan 2013, 04:23 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Do maintenance on Monday morning not Friday night
|Comment #55 by: StrayDawg on 19 Jan 2013, 04:49 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Sony owes us more than just a note that it's extending its maintenance time. It would make dealing with not being able to get on the network easier to tolerate. And I hope they get rid of the hackers that are still in the MK vs DC game. ~Stray~

Who cares, it is what it is and it has to be done to move forward. No matter how long it takes. Try a new flavor of entertainment for a day or two.
