PlayStation Network (PSN): Outage Status Update – Online by Weekend

By Updated on

We finally have some good news for PS3 users who are dying to get online again on their systems, as it looks as if Sony has inadvertently confirmed that the PlayStation Network will be back online by the weekend at the very latest.

Sony has been talking in a blog post about their plans to compensate players of PS3 MMO DC Universe Online and revealed that they will be holding something known as a ‘double station cash day’ for players on April 30th – this coming Saturday, as reported from Eurogamer.

This information was revealed by SOE director of community relations Linda Carlson, as she added below:

“To thank players for their patience, and we will be hosting special events this weekend across our game portfolio, including a Double Station Cash day on Saturday, April 30th. We are also working on a ‘make good’ plan for players of the PS3 versions of DC Universe Online and Free Realms.”

You can read that information on the official DC Universe Forums here, hopefully Sony will confirm on the official PlayStation Blogs that the service will indeed be resumed by the weekend. Let us know your thoughts on this – are you looking forward to playing PS3 online again?

    re willing to invest some time and energy, why not have a garage
    sale. Their size is not terribly giant, thus you will
    not got to worry concerning giant homes; heaps of food, or something like
    that. The old inhabitants either want to move to a posh area or
    to a different country and the new movers want to have a property of their own in their own name and the buying and selling
    trend is proliferated.

    P.S. Hands up all those who clicked on the AGREE button when signing up for the online service?

    Check the wording of that agreement……….Sony reserves the right to pull the plug on online gaming whenever and for whatever reason they want……Permanently if they wish!……..so stop the crying…..you agreed to it!!!!!

  • Essexneil

    PSN still dead in the U.S
    Just so you know, most/all single player games gets outdated as of multiplayer games always brings something new to the table. Single player gets boring faster than multiplayer.
    Just as an example: Black Ops.
    Single player campaign players: 1 players
    Multiplayer (with possible dlc): 1000 players
    The ratio is never right but who's counting its an example. Do not flame me, I said example.
    However I also understand the single player games are much funner if you play a lot of games, 100 single player games and within those 100 games you do not know the story or anything and you want to play it to find out.

    @ Lunarautumn1
    I understand the conflicting issues at already being a psn plus member however seynolds has already told every psn account whether it be plus or not will get 30 days for free.

  • MR.BANDICOOT

    U DONT NEED THE PS NETWORK FOR FAR BETTER GAMES LIKE CRASH TEAM RACING, DESTRUCTION DERBY AND WORMS. THE STATE OF BLACK OPS. I HOPE THE OUTAGE LASTS FOREVER SO EVERYONE WILL DISCOVER THE REAL GAMES ON THE PLAYSTATION 3.

    • Dingo-Dile

      hear hear, ctr is the best game ever.

  • Lunarautumn1

    You know what why don't people find out the facts before running your mouth OH PSN is free so don't complain well My PlayStation Plus membership WAS NOT FREE I paid for it and I can not use it so I will Bitch all I want!!!
    I PAID for a service I am NOT GETTING !!! SO SONY are you going to compensate all your Plus Members?
    So People find out all the facts before you go running it acting like you know what you are talking about. Because it just makes you look Stupid……..

    • Essexneil

      Ok ok so you paid! And what? someone stormed into your house at night and gave you cancer"??????? NO!!!……..Again….I repeat, for the really STUPID ones out there…..You can't play online for a few days!!!!

      GROW UP!!!!!! stop throwing your toys outta the pram kiddies.

      ITS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!! There is life outside of your smelly bedrooms! Go outside, rub your eyes and see sunlight for a change, your not vampires, it won't kill you!!! Maybe, just maybe, this break will make the clever ones realise how much of their lives they are wasting in a virtual world and get a grip of themselves , realise it's just a GAME!! And play it occasionally instead of continually. For the stupid ones… Yeah fella! You rock! You are the dogs and you are so so so famous, known throughout the virtual world as one of the greatest gamers…………….whatever! Stare at the pretty pixels, frantically paddling at your controller, your obviously not that bright so it's probably the best, and safest place for you!

  • Essexneil

    Bwaaaaa!!!! I haven't lost anything! I haven't been able to play free online! I haven't been able to sit indoors in a dimly lit bedroom on a warm sunny spring week staring at a bunch of pixels on a screen imagining I really am important because I can play a GAME better than some other hunched spotty geek! My life hasnt been ruined because Sony could not stop a group of very clever, very determined hackers who spend their lives trying to suck the fun out of life!

    BUT…..BUT…..I WANT COMPENSATION!!!!!!

    For what? I don't know! But I want it anyway because like everyone else, I want something for nothing!

    Not because some drunk rear ended my car and left me in a wheelchair!
    Not because I have been blown to bits by an IED in some god forsaken country!
    Not because some drugs company produced some drugs that my mother took when pregnant and now I'm disabled!
    Not because some manufacturer developed a wonder material that turns out 30yrs later to be killing me very slowly!

    But……..because I can't play my games!!!!

    BWAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

    Grow up people!

    • JOHN BROWN

I have been able to sit indoors in a dimly lit bedroom on a warm sunny spring week staring at a bunch of pixels on a screen imagining I really am important because I can complain about some other hunched spotty geek complaining! My life hasnt been ruined because the internet could not stop a group of very clever, very determined complainers who spend their lives trying to suck the fun out of life!

      piss off, i payed for my playstation and all my games, i rarely bother with offline career mode or whatever, so no im not asking for something for nothing you fucking idiot i payed for many things i cannot temporarily use. but tbh if they actually just told us when it was going to be back on i wouldnt be as upset, i just keep hearing things whether its from genuine articles or rumours about when its coming back but its all fucking bullshit, even Sony said it would be back on today(tuesday) and it isnt, o and how surprising they havent even got the courtesy to tell us WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON. looks like another boring night playing my ps2

  • Komodo Dragon

    Because of the Bluray Player that's why, plus you cant get cheaper than free online membership albeit there nada at the moment…lol

  • chadman

    shoot, not yet. I got alot of stuff I need to do around the house tomarrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thomp123

    I think theyre should be a double or extra points system across games that do have this point system, thos who pay monthly for games to be online also refunding them is a good idea playstation everyone stop your whining, also because of the credit card scare sony should issue e-mails as soon as they find out if any data has been taken as it took a few days for them to send e-mails about who's account had details taken as this will decrease the risk of money being taken.

    I also think that because of this large 'no-play' time for the past week or so for online users there should be a week/few days of online discounts of certain games or patches as this will help the mood of the online players after having to deal with this long time of no online play. FAQ's also need to be tended to a lot more frequently by sony as this tough time will cause a lot of worry with the online community, as myself having recieved and e-mail from sony saying my details have been stolen i have lost some faith in the protection i will be recieving in the future, this means a small explanation of the precautions you have put in place to protect the network's users from being at risk like this again, for example i read about some niaveity in sony's faith on rogue PS3's after previously stolen software, no possibilities should be overlooked and we as faithfull PS3 users should be protected against all threats to our accounts and financial details.

    This would be very helpfull for all of us loyal to you

    Thank you for your help
