Yay! I can log in. It was as if I had duck tape across my mouth. Couldn't get into the forums, or make any posts, which is odd, because they stripped my ability, mid post...something about either emo ray, or Xi, I forget which. That's right, I was logged in and they logged me out. Anyway SO far I'm a little happier that I can at least connect to the forums even if I haven't yet had the chance to connect to the ps3. Way to kill the last two days off by killing the servers. Anyway I can't wait to see the patch notes on both the system update (if it is an update, because it was labled as maintenance), or at the very least the home patch notes.
Yes as of right now everything seems to be back up except Home and the Store. I haven't been able to sign on to my PS3 or the forum here the whole time and now, as you can see lol, I am able to access both. Lets just hope that the rest is back up by the 5 am EST dead line, with no more delays..
To Sony and all staff involved this has been one of the poorest attempts at an update and to be off of your time table by so much is absolutely and unequivocally unacceptable. You handled yourselves beyond poorly, there is in no way any excuse for how this whole thing was handled, in fact it was quite pathetic on all your part. If I had done anything like this during my IT career I would have been not just fired but executed by my bosses. I would say more but its not going to get any nicer from here so I'll just bite my tongue, for now!
Latest word is 5 am Eastern / 2 Pacific:
There's no excuse for this. That will be close to 48 hours and there's a high chance, it will be more than that.
Sony really screwed up this time.
This happens a lot with this core updates.
1) No it does not.
2) There is no core update going on.
It's just another in a long list of examples of how bad a job Sony is doing managing their PSN. PS Home is a mess; PS Store is a mess; and they can't even keep their network running without lengthy maintenance periods.
Someone's going to write a book about how Somy went from being the leader in consumer electronics (anyone remember the Walkman and PS1 & PS2) to a company that is so poorly run and so out of touch with what consumers want that despite so much potential, they have basically handed Apple and Microsoft the keys to the kingdom.
Sony's PlayStation Home updated mission statement...
"Like it never happened"
- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -
I can sign in right now... But can't use Home or goto the store it's still down... So being able to sign in is useless in this case.... WTH!
If there down after 10:30am east sat morning that will make 48hrs being down! If they pass 48hrs we all know that is a Bad sign As to what happened...
Wait and see!
So in this case they need to get it back up before 10:30am east then.... If not well.... The End is Nigh!
