PlayStation Network is back up!
 
Very good news this Sunday morning; the PlayStation Network is back up and running! Though with limited activity... the PS Store is down, though will be restored soon. Just a heads up, don't attempt going to the PS Store through L.A. Noire, as it will freeze the game as Sony has not restored that service yet.

On another note, to celebrate the one year anniversary of Red Dead Redemption's release, we will be playing the game online later today on the PS3 from 3 PM to 4:30 PM, and the Xbox 360 version from 4:35 to 6 PM, U.S. Eastern Time. I will be recording video and taking screen caps of the session. Add me on PlayStation Network to be invited to the game. My PSN ID is CaseyTheVA and Xbox 360 ID is Ottomancer. Happy hunting!

Hot damn now to go get my copy of red dead back from my friend.

iKlipse 05-15-2011 09:59 AM

Meh, I doubt I will be on. Sony is to shit to restore PSN world-wide. Lets do it individually by region, cause US is that more important than EU and Asia. They can't even give us a rough guess when we will be back -_-

aye.

Because when you turn on a car you immediately red line in 4th gear?

They're bringing it back slowly to make sure they don't fuckup and have a ton of false starts.


ANYWAY, casey you accepted that friend request i sent from that xbox account aye? I might actually play later today with you cunts :3

So its been 20 hours since they announced PSN coming back. The US is up and going but during that 20 hours, their webmasters haven't even updated the information page to tell us when we will be back. Great coverage. I wouldn't mind if they gave us an approx time of when we will be back up and gave us a little bit of info every now and then... But they aren't telling us anything.

UK and Ireland are now back up, along with the Middle East, which I thought was an odd choice to give priority to.

Did you hard reset your PS3? I've been playing with iKlipse for a while now.

Havok_Jro 05-15-2011 04:19 PM

I'm all up for a little Xbox till 12 if you're on Casey :)

Also, stealth edit is stealthy.

If you mean holding your finger on the power button when you turn it on then yeah, I just tried that. Nothing so far.

Edit: Hmmm @PlayStationEU on twitter says it's back up here, but I'm still getting the under maintenance message...

Edit again: Maybe it's this type of situation.

Edit yo: Now it's working, 3-4 hours later.

European offer is quite good:

Now that certain PSN services have been restored and you’re once again enjoying online gaming, it seems a good time to confirm what is being offered as part of the Welcome Back programme.

Once we restore PlayStation Store, which will be just a little while longer, you will have the opportunity to claim your Welcome Back gifts. Please note that the Welcome Back programme is only available for those countries with access to PlayStation Store*.

All existing PlayStation Network members will be able to access the following from PlayStation Store*:

Two PS3 games from the following list:

LittleBigPlanet
Infamous*
Wipeout HD/Fury
Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
Dead Nation*

For those with PSP accounts, you will also be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list:

LittleBigPlanet PSP
ModNation PSP
Pursuit Force
Killzone Liberation*

- 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PS Plus subscribers*

- Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will be given 60 days free subscription.

- For existing Music Unlimited subscribers, you will be given 30 days free subscription.

- We are working on a Welcome Back offer in PlayStation Home and will share that when it is confirmed.

I would like to thank all of the developers and publishers involved in this programme for their support in making this happen. We certainly couldn’t have done it without you.

You will be able to access this content once PlayStation Store comes back online and we are doing everything we can to make that happen as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support and keep checking back on the blog for more information.

For eligibility for the welcome back programme consumers must be an account holder on 20 April 2011. Specific details about these offers and eligibility requirements will be posted as the services go live. All existing PSN registrants have 30 days from when the welcome back programme goes live to redeem their content.

For the German market, InFamous and Dead Nation will be replace with Super Stardust HD and Hustle Kings in the selection of PS3 games.

For the German market, Pursuit Force and Killzone Liberation will be replaced with Everybody’s Golf 2 and Buzz Junior Jungle Party in the selection of PSP games. Killzone Liberation will not offer online gameplay functionality.

Access to the 30 days free PS Plus subscription is only available for those countries where PS Plus is offered. You will have access to the PS Plus content planned for May for 30 days. Access to the free games and exclusive features finishes at the end of the 30-day subscription period. Anything you buy with exclusive discounts, dynamic themes and premium avatars are yours to keep forever.
