Ubisoft’s Uplay system, which acts as an always-on DRM for many of its PC games, went down overnight – right in prime PC gaming time, thanks to the Steam sales. A representative for the publisher has issued an apology for the inconvenience and said servers are back online – but not before the downtime generated 200 or so angry forum posts on the ever-popular subject of is-DRM-the-very-devil.

SCEA‘s announced that the PlayStation Network will be down today from 9am PST to 11am PST, that’s 5pm BST to 7pm BST tonight.
At that time, you wont be able to play games online, wont be able to sign into the PSN and you’ll see a maintenance page for whenever you try to access the PSN at all.
This must be linked to the SCEE conference in Cologne tonight: most likely for new PSN features and/or the EU PSN video store that’s been long overdue. We smell a rat, a big one at that.
We’ll most likely find out tonight why it was down.

Just so you know when the lights go off.

Conan’s mighty strength wasn’t enough to heft the prodigious weight of his game’s masses, seemingly. Massively’s reporting that Age of Conan’s servers suffered a proper outage today, causing user trouble on an official thread you can only see if you’ve got a game key.
Fortunately, Funcom’s now confirmed that the servers are back up and ready to go, so get in there. You’ve got ages of lost time to make up for.
