The drama doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of ending in terms of Sony and their PlayStation Network adventures. Despite the fact that gamers in the US and Europe can now access the PSN and PlayStation Store without any problems, those of you trying to change PSN passwords can’t – because Sony’s website is down.
It’s a hard thing to swallow for many PS3 gamers as well. Just when you think everything is back to normal and you can finally go on to the PlayStation Network and resume your normal gaming activities, this new problem appears and it looks like it’s gone under the radar so far.
Just to recap you on the situation, Sony requires all users to change their passwords the very first time you try to log into the PSN again following on from the downtime. Depending on your console circumstances, some of you are able to change passwords directly on the PS3 console and there’s no problem there, but for everyone else, Sony requires you to change your password by retrieving their email and clicking on a generated link.
Well it turns out this generated link is offline, and has been for days. Below is the message you’ll see if you find yourself stuck in this situation:
We contacted Sony customer services to find out any information regarding this, and we were told that the service would be resumed as ‘soon as possible’ and that Sony are ‘working hard to fix the problem’. The fact that this has gone unnoticed and the fact that there doesn’t appear to be any official word from Sony on the PS Blogs is a bit worrying to say the least.
What are your thoughts on this gamers? Are you met with the same error screen when trying to change your PSN password, or is everything working fine for you?
