Planned Network Maintenance - December 3, 2012

27 replies 11158 views Edited Nov 30, 2012

Hi everyone,

 

We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a planned maintenance for PlayStation Network scheduled for Monday, December 3rd from 8AM to 4PM Pacific Time (11AM to 7PM Eastern). To clarify, this is an eight hour maintenance.

 

If you’ve signed onto PSN over the past few days, you’ll still be able to play online and access apps during this period, but you may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management as these services will be unavailable. Be sure to sign in now if you wish to access the Network during this maintenance window.

 

Thanks for your patience during this maintenance timeframe, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Might want to check out these other threads that've popped up overnight. Looks like people in the middle of the country can't get online.  Might be a hub somewhere else in the country between them and you..... or god knows what else (doubt they all have the same ISP but who knows). Me personally? I've been fine since the last firmware update 4.31 or w/e, in fact since then I've STOPPED randomly dc'ing from the network and the trophy list stopped freezing (while syncing) sometimes.  I live in Miami FL

GTA IV online has issues because of the people with crappy connection.

I've been having problems staying connected to the PSN for about 4 days now. Just constant dropping every few minutes, makes no sense. Also I'm on the east coast, I have read that some posters out west are having what appears to be same issue as me. I am having this issue on two PS3s and my Vita.

 

Internet is fine on my end, everything else is conencting without issue.

Funny how when everyone is having issues with PSN I get the fastest download speeds I've ever had. I'm downloading 7.5 GB games in 20 minutes and 1 GB games in 2-3 minutes.

Please change the way you search stuff in the playstation store somehwere in the future, because it's not easier to look for games AT ALL, especially for add ons.

Looks really cool, but the searching system is whack.

I'd prefer the old way where it comes out like the keyboard because there's less "up up up up up up up up up up, x, then down x50, x, then up x100, x".

Same thing goes for the youtube app if you could do anything about it. Too much lefts and rights.
