Very few of my PS friends come on to these Forums for info. To reach the people who need this information, the Maintenance messages should also be broadcast when folks log on to PSN on the XMB. A news ticker advertising the PSStore items in the upper left of the screen. Why the heck not run a simple message saying PSN Maintenance and then the time-frame?? And if Maintenance is underway, just say how many more hours - then don't have to worry about time zone info. Adding a more detailed News & Info icon with message would be helpful.
They should definitely do that. Moreover, why the heck don't they add a PSN Status banner at the footer of all us.playstation.com sites? Since they want for the footer to be so informative then add the one thing it's missing, a PSN Status banner. The fact we have to go the Knowledge Center to find out the PSN status is retarded. US PlayStation, do learn something from Europa, which PlayStation sites have a PSN status at the header of every EU PS site.
this f'n sucks!
they said it would be finished at 19h pm.
Its now 20:30 and still in maintenance. I would like to buy Joe Danger 2 but f' it!
Imma gonne buy it on xbox instead. Sony isnt reliable at all...
I don't understand why one would buy on their less favored of the two HD consoles for non-exclusives because of a day (or so, though hopefully not) of downtime.
I actually found info on this from the Twitter feed, liked from the PS.Blog. But, yes, a ticker would be good. If single-game-focused MMO sites can provide as much, then Sony could for their entire PS Network.
They should atleast have someone update the post when they have to extend maintence don't we give them enough money to pay someone to update the forum once in awhile?
