I completely agree. I have also had one since day 1 launch and this is getting RIDDIC. Way more then 4 times the network has been down too. DCUO is down everyday because of PSN. I also do pay 55 dollars a year thats with tax to be able to play. And another 15 a month with dcuo. They should reimburse us the time they have wasted to our ps plus membership.
First off, people shouldve expected this. About a million people just got a PS4, yesterday. Thats roughly a million people trying to connect to PSN at the same time. Of course it's gonna stress the servers. People complained when GTA online launched, and their servers were stressed. People complained when FFFXIV ARR launched and their servers were stressed, too.
People complain WAY too much. Sometimes you just gotta take one on the chin, be patient and WAIT for these problems to be fixed. It might take a day, a few days or even a week. You might have to wait for the next major firmware update to go live. I mean, really....what are you gonna do? Complain about it until it gets fixed? Sell your PS4 and buy an XBox One? Nothing YOU do is gonna make Sony fix the problem any faster, so just chill out.
Better get used to it. This network is gonna be up and down a lot more, until they develop some stability for it. You guys expected a perfect console, on a perfect network....and youre gonna be disappointed. Sorry, but even the PS3 had problems on day one...and that was about 7 years ago, when PSN was still under construction.
I've had my PS4 since launch, and I've learned that you are gonna have to have patience and watch both the PS4 and network grow over time.
If you cant understand this, and you feel like going to XBox One....then go! Peace out! Theres a lot of people like that, and I wouldnt mind the herd being thinned out a little, anyway.
It's no wonder that people embrace mediocrity , since some of these people are telling people to stop complaining.
It's a paid service, not a free one. Apparently, this has to be explained to these Sony apologists on the forums, and I'm 100% sure they're not smart enough to get it.
PSN is a free network. It always has been.
You dont HAVE to buy PlayStation Plus and not every game requires it. DCUO doesnt require it as well as a few other free to play games. Furthermore, buying plus does not mean you pay for PSN. It simply means you pay for the Plus service; games, discounts, early access beta's and some multiplayer functionality. Paying for plus doesnt make you exempt from network downtime and maintenance periods and it certaintly doesnt make you invulnerable to server crashes, errors and instability issues. So dont think just cuz you pay for Plus, that you are entitled to a flawless service or network. It dont work like that. LOL.
