Same thing happened to me, Its not often Maintenance logs me out, usually you can play online if youre already online, so it clearly wasnt scheduled, and must be quite serious.
Its still a joke that we have to stay offline and nobody seems to know what the issue is, Especially seen as it looks to be worldwide.
All our support lines are shut now because its 22:53, god damn useless sony
"Looks like it's a WW issue now... Something much bigger is going on here."
Ooo.... I LIKE big. Perhaps there will be an amazing climax of epic proportions...
Or maybe Sony will fix it under the curtain of night without us ever hearing a word from them about it. So anticlimatic...
For those of you trying the DNS thing, it doesnt make a difference, it looks to be a completely different issue seen as ive had two different error codes pop up.
And the fact thats its worldwide, where as the problem with the DNS was AT&T only should give you an idea that changing the DNS will do nothing now. If they dont fix this within the next 30 - 60 minutes theres going to be outrage.
Itll really annoy me if they fix it by tonight for the americans, but at like 6 am for us in the UK, giving the americans preferential treatment again. I should never have traded that Xbox
