Neither me or my buddy can create a PSN account. It's been under maintenance for over 24 hours. Any rough ideas when it's coming back up?
Hi & Welcome to the Playstation Online Community.
The network isn't down, but there have been numerous issues lately with people being unable to access their accounts, add funds or create new accounts.
You should be able to create a new user directly on your PS3, is this where you're trying to do it?, if so & its not working for you try going here instead:
