PlayStation Network maintenance extended

Friday, 18 January 2013 02:11 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Today’s scheduled 12 hour maintenance window for the PlayStation Network has been extended, Sony has announced via Twitter. The announcement mentions the downtime has been extended “to tomorrow morning”, and as it was supposed to end at 8:00 PM PT, that suggests we’re looking at an additional four hours at the very least. Updates are promised when available. If you signed into the PSN any time in the last few days, you should still be able to play online while Sony tinkers, although some network features will be unavailable.

    Holy crap Sony…who is your scheduler?

    DO THIS CRAP on a late Sunday night into Monday or Monday into Tuesday! You pick one of the busier gaming nights to update AGAIN?

    Thursday, Friday and Sat and then early Sunday are the biggest gaming nights. Why you choose one of them continually baffles me.

    NEW update: won’t be back until Friday 18th at 11am.

    Also, you told us as long a we signed in before this “update”, we would be able to game and that only the store and account info would be inaccessible….bull. No one I know can get in and we are always logged in for the most part! Grrrr….

    I was in the middle of a game on Madden 13 ahead 28 to 0 when it went down yesterday. It just cut off without warning, which really sucks because I have been trying to best that damn GOAT game for about 10 tries. I know it is a coincidence that I had 3 amazing strokes of good luck followed by the buzz kill, but man does that suck that not only that, but even 12 hours later I still cannot get on psn :(

    @31 He’s actually fond of Microsoft. So fond of, that he blindly bashes everything that stands in his precious company’s way. I’d love to know how this hatred towards Sony was born. His girlfriend left him after he spent too much time playing on his PS3 and now he seeks revenge?

    I feel like we’re already paying him too much attention, but it would be really nice if he would enlighten us on this matter, and stop poison every thread related to Sony. It’s getting quite annoying to be unable to scroll through comments without one of his killing your mood.

    just because we are outraged does not mean we spend our entire day playing ps3, we do have lives and i can say i enjoy reading and going out, but when im in the mood to play ps3, i should be able to play it, preferably online, instead of the network being down almost half the time!

    @59 You’re outraged about a online service going down for a single day.

    You can’t play on your PS3 for one night. Big deal. It hardly warrants cursing and “outrage”.

    “Half the time” is a major over-exaggeration. I think the general quality of the service sucks, sure, but when it happens, I just go do something else. Screaming about it isn’t going to magically fix whatever hardware malfunctioned this time.

  68. Ireland Michael

    @63 That’s not how network maintenance works.

    This sort of thing happens because hardware needs to be replaced on a regular basis. They obviously came across some hardware that needed serious maintenance.

    I think their entire networking system needs to be severely upgraded, but Sony aren’t exactly exploding in cash right now. Even if they were, this sort of thing happens to even the biggest companies with the most up-to-date server architecture on the planet. Hardware is a fickle beast, and not one prone to always obey its masters.

    *cue Skynet references*

    @65 The entire purpose of server maintenance is to ensure that aren’t any problems with the hardware. A HDD could have died, a processor could have blown, a PC could have crashed. Parts need to be replaces constantly to ensure they work.

    I get the impression you have no actual comprehension of just how large and complex these server infastructures are to actually operate.

    i do know how complex they are and as i and u just said, it is a check up and for a multi-million company it shouldnt take over 24 hours to locate and replace the hardware, and they should have a backup network, one that allows online gaming and nothing else! my point still stands that this is 100% rediculous

    I can play online as well keep getting the message for the Revolution and buy the seasonal pass even though I already have it. I get the logic of most people on here if we want to play we should be able to we did buy the games we did buy the system and telling people to go read a book is such a Douche comment to make. I read at night before I go to bed …
    I do a lot of other things like work 55 + our’s a week come home feed my Husband do laundry walk my dog and if I want to play play station in my down time then I should be able to do so… So how about we stop assuming that people have no life when this maybe something they just enjoy when they have the time. Unlike some people that have no jobs a live on these games. I work Hard so I can play Hard that’s all I got to say !!!!
