PS3 Black Ops melt down when UK PSN back up online

By Jamie Pert - May 15, 2011

Our earlier post confirmed that the PSN was back up in the US, now we wonder how the Black Ops servers will cope with the hammering they will be getting due to the millions of PS3 gamers who will be going online once again today.

Some experts are suggesting that today may set records for being the busiest day in the PSN’s history, not only will PS3 gamers be able to feed their habits after almost a month without online play, but also as it is a Sunday most people will be able to play all day as they do not have work, college or school to go to.

In late April we asked you which game you would play first when the PlayStation Network was back up, we noticed that the majority of you were missing Black Ops, therefore we expect millions of people to be playing zombies and multiplayer modes for a big part of today, but will it cause a melt down?

In a perfect world internet providers, game servers and the PlayStation Network will come together and cope with the huge demand, however thing don’t always go to plan, therefore we wonder what will be the weak link in the chain.

Do you think that the huge PSN demand will cause a melt down today?

    They did the US first because we’re filled with rednecks who need to shoot their AK-47’s at people instead of their Browning .308’s at trees.

    Not texas booo

  • psn gamer

    I really hope it comes back today though, but I don't think there will be a meltdown because psn has coped b4 and Sony have done the right thing by bringing it back gradually to all users. If you think about it though there will be less people online than expected because some people have traded in their PS3s for Xbox's. Which is a bad move now that PSN has almost recovered. You never know though Xbox Live could get hacked tomorrow.
