Mobile platform Mobage is experiencing “some problems” and is out of service with no ETA on its return. Many Mobage games on both Android and iOS require an always-on Internet connection, which means a large swathe of its catalogue of games are pretty much out of order too. Maybe you can live without My Monster Racher, Rage of Bahamut, Zoo Land or Dreamtopia but I can’t play Tiny Tower so this is the worst day.

Somewhere in the world, somebody had the free time and the inclination to play Quake Live, and they were seriously disappointed. Rejoice, free-to-fraggers: your world is restored.

Update: Sounds like the PSN outage’s only part of the problem. PS3s that haven’t suckled at the Internet’s bounteous teat for years are reverting their clocks to 12/31/1999 for some reason. If we didn’t know about Sony’s strict no-mad-scientist policy, we’d swear this was part of some larger conspiracy. Thanks, Joystiq and lindblum_resident.
Update 2: SCEA’s said in a seperate blog post on the US PS Blog that it has “narrowed down the issue and have engineers working to restore service even as you read this”.
Original: Occasionally, when an Internet connection drops, you might hear someone ask “who shut-off the Internet?” Well, that entire notion’s ridiculous. You can’t just yank the cord on the entire Internet.
PSN, however, is another story.

Nelson’s updated his blog to bring word that scheduled maintenance work on Xbox Live is taking longer than expected: the service is still down.
Another update is promised at 2.00am PST, which is 10.00am BST.

Nelson’s posted a reminder that Live is completely down tomorrow, and may be so for up to 24 hours. So says he:
As I mentioned earlier in the week, tomorrow (Monday, 9/29/2008) from 12:01 AM PST for up to 24 hours, Xbox Live will be offline for maintenance. As a result, Xbox LIVE and the ‘My Xbox’ section of Xbox.com will be unavailable, and the Xbox forums will be in read only mode (you won’t be able to post.) The remainder of Xbox.com will be available with limited interruptions. When the service returns, you will not have any new features and you will not have the new Xbox experience update. That will happen later this Fall. I will update my Twitter when the service returns.
That’s 8.00am UK time, if anyone’s counting.
