PSN down again: Sony’s response on May 29

By Gary Johnson - May 29, 2011

The PlayStation Network has been back with us for around two weeks now without the full service being resumed. Now today we have new reports of Sony’s PSN down again on May 29 in the US and parts of Europe. Many PlayStation 3 owners found problems again this morning when trying to sign into the network.

The service has only just recently gone live in Japan and it was hoped that the PlayStation Store would be back by Tuesday, according to an article on Judge Game. Luckily Sony has not left it long before responding to the problems. They have said that some users may experience problems signing in, as they are working on restoring the full PSN service.

It hasn’t been said how long the service may be down for but it should mean we finally see the PlayStation Store back online. This will also mean that you will be able to start accessing the free downloads offered by Sony.

At the time of writing we have reports of some areas in Europe the service is down, but some of our readers in the UK have confirmed it is available. Is the PSN service working in your area?

        Agreed, its not about the console, its about the entertainment and the hobby. PS3 and XBOX are amazing (when they work!). I dont count the Wii. It was amazing for about 5 mins before I realized it was just a Gamecube with a gimmick controller. I love the Wii too (and gamecube for that matter), dont get me wrong, but the youth-oriented games and Wiimote made me feel, and look kinda silly. OH, and no PS store over here in San Diego, California yet. But PSN is working….
