PS3 gamer boredom while PlayStation network (PSN) down

By Updated on

You may wonder if the PS3 gamer is starting to suffer with boredom, as the PlayStation Network (PSN) is still down after almost three days now? Luckily I have been away for two weeks, but there are those of you who have been at home waiting by your PS3 in the hope that you can get back on, to enjoy a good game online. So what can you do to relieve the boredom while you wait for the Sony engineers to get the service back up?

It is no secret that this issue has angered PSN users, especially when there had been no explanation why the PlayStation Network went down in the first place, but reading some of these comments here will give you a good idea of just how they feel. One thing we do know, this is certainly not doing Sony any favors.

ZoKnowsGaming has come up with five things to do while the whole PlayStation Network down issue continues. One or two of them certainly seem like a great idea, such as taking in a movie or reading that book that has been sitting on the shelf for a few months.

However, there are other ideas that do seem to be taking it a bit too far, such as playing a few board games with some friends instead. Yes playing these can be fun, but how many arguments have you had over the years while playing a game such as Monopoly? There are a few other ideas, but not to certain if you would ever go that far – who wants to talk on the phone to a friend for hours?

What have you been doing to pass the time away, as you wait for PSN to go live once again?

Update: Sony recently issued an update on the situation, which you can read for yourself on their blog.

    I like how when googling "psn network down" this was the first result.

    I can see it now, 1000s of basement dwellers eagerly searching for an update, only to find an article telling them to read a book.

    lol

    • Jesta213

      I am Very upset also!!

      • tiffs

        yeah i agreee with you..

    • Chris

      Haha.. i have to go back to skool soon and i need to fit in some hardcore gaming :(

    • Stu

      Although I'm sure you meant 'thousands' not 'one thousands' but yes of course! Aside from the basement dweller comment I agree. I was hoping to get an update on the situation and well I would read the book but it's a re-cap of events from the prequel and I would go out but it's not for a good few hours so I need MY GAMING TIME!!

    • Joseph

      omg thank you so friggen much thats so true

    • IRT

      WTF??? read a book?? play board games??!! NO! i want to play ps3 online! NOW!!!!!!

    • weed

    THIS IS BRUTAL!!!!
    Honestly I've been trying to play offline … it just isnt the same I KNOW im going to win its no surprise but seriously … three days? are you effing kidding me?!?! why couldnt this happen to Xbox …..

    • reufing700

      your right

    • NBK_FuRYzZ

      ur probably just addicted to psn, go get a life no offence, but i do agree bout xbox bit…..

    • reise

      becaue ps3 was the only locked console left it was considered challenge to the hackers

    • CakeFAce

      Because OpTic and FaZe ect. would die of withdrawl symptoms. PS3 players are real men!

    • gcell4

      It happens to xbots owners all the time,my best bet is to stick it out with psn.not everything always gonna be clear bout what happens.

    • jsgraves

      LOL IKE

    • DaDoopie

      Because the Xbox already sucks enough, taking down xbox live would only destroy the system and leave many obese children and adults in a suicidal state of depression across the world. Yeah, that's what would happen.

    • CBA Scary Bear

      Because X Box Live isn't some 3rd world country ghetto network sloppily thrown together by a third party technology firm, ever hear the expression you get what you pay for?
      PS3 trolls begin your rant about how your non functioning network is vastly superior to the functioning X Box Live services.

    • ps3hater101

      cause ps3 sucks and xbox doesnt

    • Isaiah

      BEACAUSE XBOX DID THIS TO US!!!!!!! lol

  • Gazza

  • meerob

    im going to buy an xbox get a grip sony u r useless

    • jack

      xbox r going bust , no there not they got hacked

    • Drivingking22 :)

      no need for an xbox lol. You actually have to pay for internet for xbox. Just be paitent. there must be other things to do that doesnt involve ps3? yeah its annoying but Think of the 1960s… they didnt have ps3 there? did they?

      • thelion45

        i have got ps3 and xbox360 all i can say xbox 360 i would rather pay for a network which is a 100x better if a game is available on both don`t need tell you which one i get

    • Lokizarro

      Enjoy your red rings and a library of games that are also available on the PC, I've had a 360, stick with Sony, great reliability and REAL exclusives that you won't get on other systems, whatever the problem is with PSN, I'm sure they'll sort it out soon enough.

    • STUFFMAN720

      psn was supposively hacked! probably by xbox users to make this exact response happen from us! dont let them get at u

    • Matt

      dude sony's network is down for 3 days calm your ass. xbox was down for a week and at that i was paying for my online and didnt get an extension on my membership. is it so bad that when online is gone you seriously cant handle it so much that youd rather go out and buy a totally other system that makes you pay for anything online? seriously not worth it man.

      • xXWAY2MERKYXx

        i agree with u totally man.we still cant rule out microsoft being responsible for this either.at the end of the day sony got pc link up an eggbox didint,seems odd to me but makes sense as to why they would try and attack

    • xXWAY2MERKYXx

    3 Days now , you should be embarrassed SONY. Maybe employ these hackers instead of prosicuting them cos they obviously have some skill you dont. If people wanna hijack there PS3 let them, you make more than enough money. Just get us back online today and maybe a redemtion code for PS Store for everyone to say sorry were a bunch of inconsiderate *****s!

  • Josh

    I went through one of those rectangular holes in the wall that open and close, and guess what!? Bright light!?

    • Morgan

      • shut -up

        How about you go outside!People have the right to vent when they pay for games a internet connection(For those who say its free) playstation plus and 70 million online users watcha think everybody gonna just be quiet?

  • someone

    at first i just thought that it was my internet down and then error report kept coming up and it started to get on my tits then i saw that the whole system was down after i restored my ps3 i was so fucking annoyed then now after a few days off line is getting to me but at least the weather in my part of the world is great but i tell you sony it better be up before the Royal Wedding because i do not want to watch that shit

    • aok126

      ja that same thing happen to me I restored my ps3 and lost everthing and just to find out that the network is down i was mad i feel ur pain

      • OrganizationXiLL

        why the heck did you restore your ps3? errors happen.. why delete all your data bc of one error? try and figure it out.. :/

    • jamster-89

      royal wedding are you kidding you gota watch that hahaha (jokes) i,d rather kill myself but hey its geting pritty close to that now with the psn been down i,v dun evrything you could do out side footy been out on my crosser and quad the just dont giv you wht you get from the final winning kill cam with a cross map tomahawk givs you like come on ppl i think we should just spam psn with threts of leaving for xbox unless its back on withing the next 24 hours but i am realy thinking of it thay never have problems :(

    • jd525

      Why wouldnt you check your settings to see if your internet is working, or do something like use the internet browser on the ps3? I did just that when i first got the maintenance message. I also looked to see if my "internet connectivity" light was flashing and it was. Talk about rash…

  • Damndogs

    Well I bought a new xbox, last week to compliment my ps3, so i'm afraid the pse has taken a backseat, while GT5 is now pooped . Got the new Halo to contend with.

    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.

    • familyguy2781

      Who cares about excuses anymore! Do you know how much money Sony has? And they cant stop some hackers! I'm highly disappointed and i have been a play-station user since the first ones came out. X-box doesn't sound like a bad idea right now

    • P

      Dear anonymous hackers,
      Although I greatly appreciate what you are doing to sony (those bastards) I would like you to realize how many people you are pissing off. After years of working on windows (unreliable as shit) I wasn't gonna go buy a Xbox, the playstation was a great way to relieve my gaming needs. I would not say i am a fanboy of the playstation… (not the most user friendly console), but when I gamed it worked fine and thats all that matters. I understand you guys have adopted the motto "SOMETIMES THE INNOCENT MUST SUFFER FOR A GREATER CAUSE", but did it ever occur to you that you guys are the innocent ones? Look I think that if you want to crack ur ps3 its your choice, but when sony attacked that idea you guys just retaliated.

      I believe that I speak for all of the PSN community, either make amends with sony, or rage your war on another battlefeild.
      Thank you for your time.
      A faithful playstation gamer.

  • tiger-lylli

    omg are sony just sat there watching millions of gamers go in to depression? how can they allow such a thing to of happened…. 4 days now and i think im slowly losing the will 2 live! i miss black ops :(

    • dannyhefc69

  • pocketts

  • Bob

    God darn hate this site, I was looking for news not drivel…

  • bob

    Sony more like jokey, bank holiday weekend and no online play.
    I can completely understand that every machine/system has problems but i would at least like to know why.
    Once again sony have just shut up shop and give us poor users no explanation.
    I have always been a playstation lover but once again it wearing thin, and no matter how much i would be a deep hole in my heart the xbox is looking more preferable.

  • Dave

    Well you know whats coming next!!! subscription fees!

    • OrganizationXiLL

      yep :/

  • Tricky-chillaxin

    I dont know about you guys but its depressing me all a man wants to do is kill some zombies and damn them geeks that work for the PSN granted they will be working but the sort of money them boys are on shouldnt have fucking problems like this in the first place 3 days to have such a large network down is an absolute discrace '' they are sony'' been hacked shouldnt be an excuse .

  • Eljigantie

    Three days had to hear about it on the radio,not impressed.may actually get my relationship sorted.also not impressed.would rather be playing pes.so hurry up!

  • sewincatcher

    never thought i'd say or think about doing it but i'm off to get an xbox what a sad day

    • storm3006

      what a real shame aint it, well even if you do get a Xbox it will brake down i garentee! do what you want to do but it will be back up sonner or later

  • not telling u

    i came back yesterday to find i cant go online and i said OOOHHHH C**P

  • N0MVD–

    Yea its pretty bad timing on whoevers part to cause Psn to go down over easterweekend, that being said if it is a hacker and sony fix the problem, they shouldnt have the least bit of reluctuncy to give out the ip of the hacker to the general public > IP Locater > Let the Lynching begin lol.

  • I_have_no_user_name

    at least they've changed the message from:
    PSN is down. You have been signed out of Playstation Network.
    to:
    Undergoing maitenance.
    Got bad company 2 today aswell and can't even go online :(

  • Waiting

    i'm sharpaning my knife waiting for the call from PLaystation

  • Craig

    It's been off and on for three days now it's completely off.
    I am sure sony are doing all they can. There are a lot of gamers
    And the server may have crashed because of this. Still Sony should
    Explain why the the PSN network is down. It does happen to xbox and they
    Pay for there subscription.

    • Chris

      HAHAHAHAHAHA not happend on xbox for like a year plus? psn is slow as is without hackers doing dirty stuff on the servers, but yea xbox aint been down for ages and there is no such thing as a weekly server maintinence, then again i guess you get what you pay for, you pay nothing so get nothing so really you cant complain

  • xbox convert

    playstation is now being exchanged for an xbox,sony have taken the piss and leave us gamers without an explanation,we deserve better.3 days no online gaming = unhappy people, goodbye playstation

    • Stupid People…

      That is because most of you so called gamers only want to play online! There is such a thing as single player! Your being stupid, you want to go and start playing on the x-box by all means you do so! Stop fucking moaning and just do it… It's not like you moving on to an x-box is linked to world misery.

  • Bob

    Just go and play some games that have a Campaign, Now I have nearly completed Assassins Creed Brotherhood but I am not really affected by the issue… All I hope is that it is up and running by next week! :S

  • paul

    one ps3 120gb for sale with 30 games two pads 2motion controllers 2 navigation controllers sony web cam ha ha .Come on sony three days this is poor VERY POOR ALL THE MONEY WE SPEND ON YOUR PRODUCTS & YOU LEAVE US IN THE DARK TO WHY THIS IS HAPPENING POOOOOOOOOOR can see myself with an xbox if this continues!!!!!!!!!! pull your finger out please…………..

  • Ironhide

    Spoke to Sony yesterday 22/04/11 and they said that the network would be up and running later today (sat) .
    Just bought a new pspgo and can't use it.. Personally i think that it won't be. I wonder what Sony will offer for compensation for this problem. Might get an XBOX360 instead!

    • gcell4

      Go and get a 360 and you will be back to ps3 when it is back up and running.If you are a ps3 fan you will always be back.

  • Tiffs

    i dont seem why people have to do it just get ride of people that do it and they can not have ps3 again simple then anit it delete them and that means they cant get on ps3 again……………… im getting bord off waiting

  • Annoyedplayer

    3rd day of psn deprivation im really annoyed now i spend majority of my no ps3 time checking when its going to be back online
    COME ON SONY HURRY UP YOUR TAKING TO LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Barry

    ROFL at PSN crybabies. Why everybody hate Sony, when they're the VICTIMS of being HACKED. Anyone noticed the excellent weather atm? Get outside, get a life, geez.

  • ceejay

    Seriously folks , GET A LIFE!!!

  • Nail-in-coffin

    I wonder if Sony have shut down PSN as part of the power down to conserve energy scheme which many large companies are doing in light of the Reactor crisis in Japan. If this is the case then we should be patient and understanding. If it isn't then they have a great excuse they can use.
    For Sony not to explain themselves is poor service. Gamer or not if the product you purchased is not functioning as intended then you should be entitled to some conpensation of some kind. If it was the car you purchased to get to work and it didn't get you to work for a few days without explanation i'm sure you would be just as annoyed as those gamers who were looking forward to spending there's hollidays playing online. This comes after a long list of examples of poor service from Sony as well (firmware that bricked consoles, time clock error that froze consoles, backward compatibilty and OS installation products removed, overheating issues, etc). Sadly the Playstation brand is so strong that they sem to be getting away with it. I think the only way large companies will learn the value of their consumers is if those customers start showing their complaints have substance and leave for other systems. I have all three main consoles and whilst I am also brand loyal (I love the Playstations), I find I am now playing Xbox more. MS have proven to look after their consumers I have personally had my xbox replaced three times for free when it went wrong, the acheivements system works well, the Kinect is potentialy a game changer, the line up of exclusives are strong and the graphics are comparable to the PS3. MS is not perfect but at least there is that feeling that you are being considered. Anyway long story short the console are in constant competiion so why not force them to use the cash we've given them to give us a level of service we shouldbegetting anyway?

  • ceejay

    If you actually read facts then you will realise PSN has NOT been HACKED!

    It has nothing to do with George Hotz as the legal action was revoked last week.

    You pay nothing to play online , be grateful of the service SONY and PSN offer in the 1st place you sad little people!

    "im getting an xbox" "im fed up of this" "i need to spend time with the wife" etc … JESUS CHRIST PEOPLE! ARE YOU REALLLLLLLY THIS SAD ??

  • f4tyh

    hurry up and get psn back up. once this is resolved sony should give us psn money

  • Eric

    I find it funny how most PS3 users I know give Xbox crap.. Yet when I buy Portal, my very first PS3 game – my brother has a PS3 and it comes with a PC copy – and try to connect to the PSN for the very first time, it fails miserably. For three consecutive days. All I want is my damn PC copy! >:O

    (To be fair, though, I do enjoy quite a bit of the PS3 exclusive games. But I still believe that PSN fails)

  • nO NAME

    Sony seriously get your act together …. 3 days i mean come on. Xbox has a back up server if their main server goes down they have a back up so customers can still play online. BLOOODY HELL STOP BEING SO CHEAP REACH OUT FOR YOUR POCKETS A LITTLE MORE OFTEN!!!! TREAT CUSTOMERS WITH MORE RESPECT!

  • Eljigantie

    Any more info……weathers crap in Glasgow

  • brandon

    i read a rumor tht it was hackers going after the psn but who knows, this isnt the first time the network has gone down, im honestly considering buying an xbox….even though i H A T E thoughs stupid things x(… dear sony.. PLEASE FIX THE PROBLEM before a make a hug mistake in buying a gay xbox!!!

  • Carlos Spicy Weiner

    come on sony pick your game up, its hard enough when u take it down for 1 day, but 3 DAYS!! its sorta taking the piss, im actually bored enough to revise….

  • killzone 3 campaign

    psn down oh dear i will have to do a campaign now! killzone 3 online top class campaign BOBINS.

    • gcell4

      Psn was down so i did start the kz3 campaign and it is a great game.Might there be a kz4?.

  • SKiiRT

    *totally agree with Barry*
    Sony would not have shut down unless absolutely necessay, now would they!!!…. Stop acting like spoilt pre-pubesents. They'll have it up an running asa they can. I'm sure Sony are delighted with all the support !
    As much as I'm gutted I can't kill the lot of you for a couple of days, I'll be delighted if 'maintenance' sorts out all the hackers that are ruining the online experience.

  • andy

    PSN!!! give us a redeeme code for all ANGER weve been through and get us back online after this terurizing 3 days of online ur such a big company get it TOGETHER!! if u dont people will start bying xbox so get us back online with reddeme code TODAY OR TOMMOROW!

  • ustadji

    SONY please listen to us ALL, atleast tell us when the problem will be solved. Give us an indication atleast.

  • lee

    God get a life! as much as i love playing cod online its not the end of the world if i cant for a few days. Ive heard lots of silly reasons why this happened one being something to do with microsoft! what a joke as if microsoft would go down that line and risk exposure.
    Im sure Sony are doing all they can yeah some news would be useful but nevermind its lovely day outside go and enjoy it.

  • tjhooker

  • paul

    this is stupid sony need to get there shit sorted out 3 fucking days how much money dose sony make wonder if they goin to give us sum for the time lost on the psn

  • Pablo

  • SHANICE

  • hacker2000

  • cars1974

  • Patience

    its a nitemare have the network down, at the end of the day i think wot ever the outcome sony will learn from this, we will hopefully in a day or 2 forget about it an move on aswell. it is hard times for us gamers but keep the faith and get outside for a bit.

  • Anon

    I have a Wii, a 360 and a PS3 … even though the network is down, i am still playing the PS3 … Why? Because i know that Sony will do what they can to get the PSN back online … Until they do, there is this amazing thing called offline play … Not only that … There is something more remarkable … It is called outside … I might go there now … You know … Those big rectangular things where the post comes into … Yes … Try going through one …

    • Sarah

  • Unknown

    If you read some of the comments, to be honest they are pretty pathetic like one "Im gonna buy and xbox cos sony are useless" I mean COME ON! Its only a GAME. They don't make the world go round and you can live without them…May I suggest go outside? What? you never heard of it? Look it inside the dictionary and its the opposite to game nerd…

  • Smig73

    Here we all are, raging against the machine but I'll tell you all one thing for certain… THE MACHINE DOESN'T CARE! It doesn't even listen and I'm not sure it can read. It doesn't need to because you've already bought the console, and the games, and the Blu-rays. You've already explained to the XBox cavemen that their consoles are made of wood and blu-tack compared with our awsome futuristic warp-engined orgasmatronic PS3. I know because I've done it too. And now like you I'm lumbered with an expensive, unreliable, poorly supported system and there is not one thing you, me or God herself can do about it!

    Sort it out sony Jerez 3 days if far to long to fix the situation -.-

  • Johngitty

    Are you f$%£ing serious??? I've been a very loyal Playstation consumer since the first playtation was released. i resisted all the temptations of xbox while waiting for the release of ps3 and ignored my friends when they told me xbox is better…until now i didnt believe them. the red ring of death is nothing compared to this, at least that can be fixed relatively quickly. If sony cant protect themselves from a group of hackers who can just walk in and down an entire network it doesnt excactly fill me with confidence. if this doesn't get sorted very quickly im selling my ps3 and going over to the darkside. final fantasy was the main reason i stayed with ps3 when things got bad, now you can get it on xbox its only loyalty to the system i played throughout my childhood thats keeping me here. loyalty thats rapidly dissappearing i might add. i hoped that i would never have to do this, but it seems the only option now :-(…..

  • THE_BaDbOy_360

    WHEN IS THE PS3 RECOVERING FROM THE DOWN , I WANT TO PLAY BECAUSE I'M SO BORRED !!! PLEASE TELL ME WHEN IT'S COMING BACK THE NETWORK

    • xbox suck

      trading in your ps3 is a bad idea. if you trade it in you will loose all the work and effort you put into it. Also it is the only console which is completely free and the games and exclusives are out of this world. the games you get on ps3 are much better than xbox. Dont trade it in you will regret it.

  • shit

    ps3 is so shit im trading mine in

  • Algerian King

    How about you train yourself on how to stop the addiction of Playstation. This will solve your problems with Sony. Just like me, I used to be addicted to Playstation 3 but now I don't really care. I don't even watch T.V. If you are addicted then you can solve it by keeping your self occupied by signing up for a weeks activity of sports, sign up for a football club so you can train twice in week days, once in weekends and play matches on Sundays maybe in weeks days as well, visit the park at least 1-2 times a week and go for a ride with your bike you bought but left a side in the Forest for fresh air. There are many ways on how to keep yourself occupied rather than sitting in front of the T.V killing players in Call of Duty, winning matches in FIFA and watching Hannah Montana on the T.V while the sun is shining out there shouting your name out so go a head and enjoy life.

  • blake24034

    seriously people if you were a normal person you wouldnt be worrying about this youd just simply say , wow its still down , guess i check again tomorrow and not be angry cuz ive ben out with my family pretty often now and also watching netflix on my laptop , one thing you can do is if you have allot of friends just pack up ur ps3 and go plays split screen with your friend im shure you guys will have a good laught and finaly get tired of ot after a few hours but come on people its just a gaming system , realy if youd rather sit on your ass and play games all day instead of going to church of supporting your family (if ur a parrent or married) your one dumn fucker thats all i gotta say !

    • KMK

      Dude, the fact that youre in here- writing a comment, just proofs that youre as abnormal as anyone else.. and another thing is, that its not every single human being that has a family to celebrate easter with. Its not every country that has nice weather… Its actually a bit windy in copenhagen.. Oh and its not everyone that is able to walk – Like in I have a footinjury from playing footy. So please, stfu ;)

  • JCo

    Love PS3 online. Disappointed it's not updated yet.
    But seriously, I'm not that bothered about it. There's other things I'd rather be doing anyway.

    Socialising for one. You know, the old-fashioned version where you actually go outside the house and meet other real people, and talk to them face to face. Have a few laughs, stretch the legs, get some fresh air (or as fresh as the city has to offer). Maybe partake in a few drinks if I have some loose change lying around. Nice pub, nice atmosphere, good music, friends. If you're too young to be drinking, get a two litre bottle of cola, get the old goalie gloves out and go for a kick-about, skateboarding, rugby, cricket or whatever you're into. Wash the car, cut the grass. Anything.

    I'm not saying don't play the PS3 but at least for the fraction of your life that it is not working, how about enjoying life a little instead of staring into your tv screen, instead of sitting fumbling around with your psps and phone games. Will also give you something to talk about instead of 'i got a double-headshot with one bullet' or 'i was playing this guy last night and he….'.

    So, even though the PS3 isn't fixed yet and I wasn't going to play it anyway, but because it isn't fixed I want it fixed – you don't realise you want something until it's been taken from you – I kinda hope it stays off for the whole weekend so that everyone can enjoy their Easter holiday in the real world.

    All the best.

  • Utteerlop#

    SOny flicked the switch on this one, pretty simple, with all this hacker talk with Anom, Sony have killed the PSN network, they threw out some bait by mentioning perhaps being hacked and now the piranhafans will hunt Anom out of the water, basically all the focus of rage and hate will go to the hacker group to deter them from future attacks. Straight out of the false flag manifesto.

    It's a good move by Sony, a costly one but perhaps for the better. It should be back online soon.

  • PS3 LOVER

    If you are SONY then how could you get hacked by these douches?

  • Liam_100

    PSN will be back up shortly just be patient.

  • Jon

    smoke some bud instead- better than video games

  • billy

    PSN making us all wait about 3-4 days u better give us something in return…….. get map packs early for once instead of xbox

  • Ziplock

    You shouldn't be angry with SONY, the anger should be fully aimed at these basement dwelling hackers that think its their right to do what ever they want with other peoples property, and PS3 software IS SONY property .
    So vent you anger towards the ego driven tool hacker 'Geohot' and this so called Anon hacker group, even though its not a group its just random hackers doing whatever they see fit , pretending they are part of something bigger .
    SONY are most likely doing some major maintenance to ensure that we wont have any more inference by this group of childish morons called Anonymous, if that is whats happening then its a good thing, because id sooner one big down time than constant interference by these tool hackers.

    This is Bull. At least Effin tell us when it is going back up. Glad I have an Xbox. Might be throwing my Ps3 out because of this. I come home from a crudy day of work and i just want to kill people, but no. This would happen on a freaking long weekend.

  • No_longeravirgin

    Ok, so my weed intake has increased like 20 fold since it's been down. I've actually gone outside and taken a walk….like yesterday….I got hungry and WALKED to Panera and got myself a sandwich…..I walked….just to kill time…..get back to my house, still no PSN. I also played guitar for hours, but then my heart started breaking for the PSN being down and all that came out was a bunch of emo songs about how PSN let me down and left me high and dry, salty tears, blah blah etc…etc…..

    This is 100% unacceptable and I think we should do something about the alien abductions that are causing this meltdown.

    Oh ya, I did manage to lose my virginity as well during this off-time…..go me?!?

  • Pissed of

  • matt

    LOL i love how people are saying they are going to buy xbox.. screw sony… hurry up your useless etc…. its not like its there fault… it was caused by hackers.. dont people see how this is NOT sony's fault so why are u blaming them?…. some people are retarded

  • nOwteLsEtOdO

    Love my sony ps3,and at first i just sat in front of t.v with error code on while i stifled a small scream,the missus asked me if i was ok,so i took a gulp and replied meekly,ye yes i,m o ok.Then in blind terror i realised the awful impending claustrophobia enveloping me,realising the collective emptiness of my life without ps3 online,so i did something i rarely do and took a hesitant step outside and took my first taste of real air,real outside air and omg heeeelllllpp i,m feeling dizzy,my agrophobia surges through me like a runaway train and i,ve got to get off,so i come back inside and stroke my ps3 whilst saying to myself things will be ok soon lol,i,m off down the pub to get pished and maybe sony will have sorted when i get back,but for now lets all take a chill pill it,s gonna be sorted asap,laters:)

    is it so bad to have a network down that it makes people question their gaming system? its not all lost man its been 3 days. did none of you guys game when there wasnt online? or is it so bad that when online multiplayer is gone you cant just call up some friends to meet up and play or something?

  • Matthew

    You are all idiots and losers for not having a life other than playing games. Yeah im bummed too but i dont play for days like u ppl do. Sometimes i work on my house to get things done then sometimes i feel like playing games. Get a life a and get a HOBBY. Go shoot some hoops or go to the beach depending on where you live. Like someone else said play the campain, if you beat it, play on a harder level cuz i bet u idiots put that crap on easy or normal. I always try to play a game the first time thru on hard, not expert but Hard. takes you longer to beat and it is more of a challenge. Just get a life. Here's a thought, read and research on the internet somes ideas u have, u can ask google anything and get results. if you dont, ask the same question but word it differently. Here's another thought, get off your butt and go to church and celebrate the true meaning of easter instead of worshiping your PS3. enough said, you know what to do.

    TO SONY: I can understand an issue can take time to sort out. I enjoy the FREE online service you provide for games instead of charging like XBOX. I hope it stays that way, but if your system stays down it sounds like you will lose a lot of gamers. i just recently bought a PS3 because i was not impressed with Xbox's Kinect. Get the bug worked out, or if its hardware failure, spend the damn money and get those servers fixed!!!!

  • TAURAS_SINCO

    everyone may not be ready for what Im about to say but here goes nothing; THE PLAYSTATION IS GOING TO CHANGE FOREVER!! BECAUSE OF THESE MULTIPLE ATTACKS, WE'RE LOOKING AT THE AGE OF PAYING FOR ONLINE MULTIPLAYER SONY HAS NO CHOICE, IF THEY WANT TO HAVE A STRONGER PROTECTION AGAINST HACKERS. THIS IS WHY MICROSOFT IS "HACKER PROOF" BECAUSE THE 360 MAKES U PAY 4 ONLINE, THEY ARE ABLE TO MONITOR WHOEVER IS PLAYING, SONY CANT DO THAT BCAUSE OF THEIR FREE ONLINE, WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING THE ONES RESPONSIBLE.

    • OrganizationXiLL

      very true.. we're not gonna like it.. but itl be for the best :/

    just called PSN and i had a bit of a ranting session. They told me it may be another 1 or two days from the point they are at right now before the network goes back up. What a horrible weekend for this to happen……..

  • Guest

    I would like free games when this is back up then I will forget this even happened :-) HINT!

  • AngryPSNuser

    At the end of the day I know it is a long time for Sony to shut the network down but they were caught by surprise off hackers or as Sony puts it outside influences. As long as it is down then the hackers can not access anything as frustrating as it is!!!!!!!!

    Why couldn't these hackers use their brains for some use other than make people's lives miserable?

    What is getting me is that my information is held on the PSN so what of my stuff has been accessed, I would like to know how serious this is. Everyone who purchases online gives their bank details to put money into there playstation wallets. I can kind of understand why Sony are being cautious!

    Would like a proper statement from Sony but the fact they are not speaking must be something legal going on and the only person who they took to court lately was George Hotz. The person who jailbreaked the PS3 as well as the Iphone. Never knew about him until now.

  • Guest

  • Infantrod

    MY thumb is healed! Hey ya’ll I now have feeling back in my thumb! IT’S A MERICAL! Wait? Nope no I was cool with it being numb because I played me some play station all day. It’s cool though this gives me time to catch up on some stuff. GO Anonymous and teach that sorry bunch of AHoles who the boss is. In all reality it will come back eventually, and by then I would assume that Sony will be much more careful about who they piss off…. Black Ops, INfantrod is the boss ya’ll!

  • Matt

    So I did some research and all evidence points to George Hotz and his group of hackers the "Anonymous". They are the reason we are without games because they feel they are "free" to exploit the security of their electronics possessions. SO IF ANYONE WANTS TO TAKE THE TIME TO FIND OUT WHERE THAT PUNK ASS KID AND HIS FRIENDS LIVE AND TAKE THEM OUT FEEL FREE.
    Hint of research for whereabouts……he's the kid that jailbroke the iphone and ipad and hacked the Ps3 and now he has hacked the network.

    HAHA LOL I have been reading comments about formatting their ps3 LMAO I checked killzone.com and checked the sign in button and it said "MAINTENACE". And i just realized something if someone hacked the psn how would sony be able to change the status from "ERROR" to "Psn is undergoing maintenace"? WTF IS GOING ON!!?

    this is BULL!!! i JUST got the new MK when the servers went down. i am a very supportive PSN player, but now i might ACTUALLY play my bro's XBOX!!!!! cmon sony, your supporters are dwindling. AT LEAST give us a date, instead of making us see when we can go online. some of us want to play online on games like lost planet 2, the new MK, and other stuff. your gonna lose customers sony! give us a date and 80% of us(excluding DC universe people) will be happy.

  • kennyboy2323

    After reading three seperate blogs on this website(to the mods: nice website btw!) I have a new-found sense of self-respect. I now know that I have more of a life than a lot (and I mean A LOT) of people. Half a week(or longer perhaps) is just too much to bear for some people. Sure, maybe I don't know all the stories or well thought-out reasons why people just GOT TO HAVE PSN, but REALLY? I recall watching a child-hood show: Rugrats; and grandpa would say "when I was a young whippersnapper we threw rocks at each other for fun."

    Oh the humanity! when a line like that isn't even considered a rational thought in the tech age.
    Maybe humanity has just got to the point where they're afraid to get a little dirty, sweaty, or calluses on their hands. Militaries using nuclear power over conventional Armies(I'm a soldier; I think I have a right to say that) and everybody else using computers, cell phones and virtual realities over ….throwing rocks at each other, backyard tackle football, flirting with that busty chick down the street. Does anybody catch my drift? Both sides of the comparison, its pretty wimpy when ya think about it. I can only imagine many years from now: if there still is a world, people will have forgot how to live simpler. Simplicity is not obsolete. Its what the human race was built off of. Simplicity became ingenuity became "a more reliant form of simplicity"(am i right?).

    Its the age we live in I guess, and I think it was just hard to know until now that this is what we've come to. Its hysterical though. If I hadn't just got my wisdom teeth removed, I would be ROTFLMFAO(a term of the computer age. can ya beat it?) at some of these people.

    This psn outtage has been going on for a lot longer than just four days. I was getting this error a week and a half ago and had to sign back in repeatedly to get it to work. While I am upset about the online play, there are other things getting missed here. For one, I have Netflix streaming to my PS3 and I cant use it because Netflix even says the psn is responsible. Also, I have Hulu plus. Just got it on the fifteenth and it is down too. When I called to ask why, same answer. Psn is causing more than just lack of online play. Anyone else that has either of these services are basically paying for NOTHING thanks to Sony and their lack of security! What a Joke!
