Latest PSN Update is…..There is No Update on PSN Downtime

by on04/25/2011
 

**UPDATE** AS of 4/26 4:40 EST http://www.vgrevolution.com/2011/04/latest-on-psn-outage-personal-data-breached/

Patrick Seybold from Sony just updated the Playstation Blog on the ongoing Playstation Network Outage of 2011, with a non-update.  The system is still down and there is no time-frame.  Many around the internet were hoping that PSN would be back up and running in some form by tomorrow, but with this last update and that Seybold says “I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.” makes me think the downtime will last at least another 48-72 hours and maybe might even last through the remainder of the week.

Since the external intrusion of PSN last week, Sony has decided to shut the system down and rebuild the entire network in-order to increase security.  This process has taken an extremely long time and has many gamers in an uproar, and the vague non-updates from Sony haven’t helped much, though with such a situation I’m sure Sony doesn’t want to reveal any secrets and still has a massive job in-front of them.  We still ask Sony to at least clearly update us and the community on the status of personal information that is stored on the Playstation network.  If personal data such as credit card numbers were accessed the sooner gamers know the sooner they can take protective measures.

      And the PSN outage goes on… Symptoms include people repeatedly trying to restart there console, swearing, going outside and enjoying the weather, actually acknowledging your spouse or mate, getting that to do list done.Other signs include self entitlement behaviour, outbursts likened to tourettes or aspbergers, Being a douche on public and private forums, requesting reimbursoment of funds for a FREE service. People seeing these sypmtoms are recommend to slap or choke the living daylights out of anyone presenting these signs. After that point and laugh.

        HHHMMM, guys like you know it all, well douche bag, the service may be free, but the fucking games i downloaded to play online ONLY, or the $15.00 BO add ons, the $30.00 MW add ons! Yea they sure the fuck werent free, hell yea people are pissed, half the fucking games sony produces now are online based, most mine are, if sony of all people cant keep there servers from being hacked, then who the fuck could, Donald Trump? I mean Sony is a multi billion company, we are near a full week now, they better fucking compinsate something, downloads, add ons, something would be better then nothing, and im sure its douches like you callin the shots, thats why it taking so long, and why we probably wont be compinsated, and as far as psn being free, well maybe you should talk to psn users outside USA, i hear they are paying for there service, and if i wanted to spend time with my wife i would not buy the ps3, i mean its the only thing that has got me thru my tough marriage, i love my ps3 more then my wife, its funner then my job, and damn did you ever play psn on WEED? FUCK YOURSELF DOUCHEBAG, and as far as SONY goes, im really considering video taping me shooting my ps3 with my 12 guage, going to walmart, buy me a XBOX 360 and post the video to youtube! :)

        • yupyup

Why dont you go jerk off to some internet porn or something, your wasting your time here, at least you would be makin good use of your internet XP, i hope someday they make a way to reach thru these computers and slap the shit out of people who pry there fucking comments where they dont belong, like slapskape or some shit, yea thats it, im gonna brand that shit man, you can be the first to get slapped thru SLAPSKAPE! FUCK YOURSELF DOUCHE!

  • Inathanx

    Ffs, it’s my birthday on Thursday, I will probs buy some new games, but I’ll have to wait to play them onlinee… Sony reaaaly.

  • Fozthemuppet

    WTF! split-screen blags! this is ridiculous

  • rosco

    its not the fact its down its the lack of info thats annoyiing

    • http://www.vgrevolution.com John Lomaga

      All I want is a clear cut answer to the status of personal data. If it’s safe just come out in say it.

      • MSB

        Now THIS guy I agree with.

        Thank God! There is someone out there whose brain was installed correctly!

  • Values1980

    I hope were being compensated in some form or fashion. Like..FREE BATTLEFIELD 3 line time…..

    • Chris

      why should psn users get compensation when they use the system for free. they dont need to give you compensation its just some stupid people messing with the system for everyone else

      • I hate Chris

        Chris of course PS users are entited to some sort of compensation.. PS network being free is part of the package and a major drawing point for the ps3. Just because it is free doesn’t mean the service should be shabby after all it only states free online play when advertising it doesn’t say “comes with a bad service” so in reality ps network being free does not mean any less then xbox live its unfortunate you have to pay for xbox live but PS network being free does not mean sony could/can neglect users…

      • Clint M.

        I bought the PS3 with the understanding that I would be able to play online for free. In my mind, that cost was included with the original purchase. I don’t think Sony owes us something so valuable as Battlefield 3, but they at least have a duty to keep us updated and to be alot more frank than they have been as to how long PSN will be down and whether we should be worried about our credit card information. That duty owed to us is greater than it is to, say, someone wanting to access sony.com. They have made certain representations to us, we have relied on those expectations, and Sony should feel some pressure to communicate a little better.

    • MSB

      Surely you jest… (please?)

      Okay, values. So you’re the kind of person who, when his car gets broken into and stolen, you hold the car manufacturer responsible? I suppose you call Toyota and tell them you want them to give you a new car because yours got stolen. Yeah, that makes sense.

    OMG I CANT WAIT FOR ANTHER WEEK I WANT TO PLAY TOMARROW ARE TODAY

    • MSN

      Wow, maybe you should spent less time playing PSNetwork and more time lehrning too sphell!

  • kurdish_player1

    miss modern warfare2 , what security shit psn is doing. even if they did, hackers are still smarter and they will hack it again so no need to do this security thing.

    • MySmallestBullet

      Are you really that big of a moron? The fact that this has all happened, coupled with the fact that it is taking this long to fix… That doesnt present a problem to your childmind?

      Sony- Take your time, get it right. You’re the premier online gaming service provider and we’re all on here becuase we love your service. Fix it and don’t turn in back on until we’re all safe from online information predators.

  • Only1Deano

    just let them fix it.. u dont understand what theyv had to do but yes slightly too long but better security being added will be back tuesday

  • Only1Deano

    you people make me laugh wanting compensation like £10 ps money , the service is free . maybe xbox would because people pay

  • mark

    i think when the new maps come out we should get them free for making us wait this long for it to be fixed

    • MSB

      Good Lord, Mark. They’re not going to give us anything for free! This is such a perfect example of hand-fed, spoiled-rotten, entitled people looking for a handout because they can’t use a service that is offered to them FOR FREE!!!!

      Please grow up, everyone. And remember, it’s not Sony’s fault this happened. If we HAVE to get all pissy at someone, how about we direct it at the people who CAUSED THIS TO BEGIN WITH?!

      Wow, all you people like, “Gimme gimme gimme” because you’re inconvenienced. Seriously, I can live with net-hackers. It’s YOU people who drive me crazy.

  • MSB

    Everyone calm down. The Network will be back up before most of you can say, “What do I get for free?”

    MSB

  • Mikereyesrf

    Get the shit fixed.!!!

  • Charliecowell

    its NOT a free service. When you pay good money for a game with a multiplayer option, you are paying for the service. How many people do you think bought black ops for the single player campaign. That argument is invalid.

    • Mstarjr

      ok Mr. Entitlement let me break this down for you… You purchased a game with multiplayer FREE multiplayer… You purchased it for a console… That console had a SEPERATE TOU AND TOS than the GAME. You want unhindered game play then get a PC to play the game. FPS multiplayer is still crap on a console… you agreed that Sony has the inalienable RIGHT to shut down the servers that you need to CONNECT THROUGH.. if anything you should be upset with yourself… Because all he other folks on a PC right now are playing independent of a TOU bound console…

  • Hanker

    I’m o.k with PSN being down for a couple of weeks. Though I would like to know that my personal info and debit card info are safe. Shame on Sony for dropping the ball on this matter!!!

  • Maxinike

    What happen with my personal info, credit card etc

    • Papa Lazarou

      Believe me, when you work in pro sales, you learn that there is nothing for nothing. It is advertised as a free service as you don’t have to pay a premium for PSN, but the costs for running it will be buried in the sale price of games and consoles. You are paying for the service, you just think you aren’t.

  • gilb-dispic

    this is dumb how about you so called ceo’s give a time frame because some of us might like to get an idea on when it will be back up you said 1 to 2 days nows its almost been a week get it together or loss 70 million people to Xbox, PC, and Wii which in all cases would already be back up and running in much less time. Plus even if you call or email them they don’t even help you know what i got when i tried asking when it would be up the update from 3 days ago yep that helps cuz i don’t have a computer and can’t read whats online bad employees knowledge on matter and bad timing over all

  • Hehyodheh

    ok to be honest here i care about all things my info,bank info, addres info and also the psn but i whether have the psn back online,,, changin my account info go to the bank gettin a new credit card can all be takin care of… time wastin but understandable due to hackers. i think if this was going on ok yes shut down the servers and post a link or message and have the 77 million ps3 owners look in to this problem but a for shutin the servers down for 6,7…etc days is just crazy. 77 million people 77 millionpeople at $300 dollar a system is $23,100,000,000 plus 60 dollar games i have 3 or 4 games at home so that’s like $250 one person just me their people that have more so let’s just say one guy with 4 games. so 77 million people with 4 games per person is $18,480,000,000 so your net is like $41,580,000,000 also yearly and people still buyin……. how can you have so much money and not have a internet white hat hacker or anit-hacker work inside the company to find hackers. Besides that you shouldn’t have a gross net of $41,580,000,000 dollars and have your servers down for 6,7, days and countin. with all that money. no one should never be offline.
