I was logged in to my psn account at 6:45pm est, just minutes ago,, exchanging msgs with friends on Home who had already updated. As I pondered whether to take the plunge, I decided to use my alt account to test the waters. When I just now tried to sign my other acct online, I got the message" The Sony Entertainment network is down for maintainnce" So, I decided to log back in on my main account. NO GO. I got the same message.So not only is Home not an option, but I cannot even access my games at the moment. Most of the new games all maintain game saves in the cloud now.No sign in, No games.This move by companies to control all our data and media in the Cloud is rubbish. Ditch your internet, not your pc. This update may prove to be as poorly timed disaster as the masses try log on. Sony's servers were often stressed pre update as we all know from the lag problems. How is putting more tasks on the servers supposed to help?

I think a whole lot of people, including myself, are asking themselves that question. It was actually ok for me earlier today, but then I ran into a series of disconnects, troubles with getting back on, looong loading times in both spaces and wardrobe....to the point where I just bailed out altogether. It defeats the purpose of Home for me--there just isn't anything fun or entertaining about that. Maybe it will all get better with time, but it seems to me they bit off more than they can possibly chew with this "update"......again.
You have to keep in mind that the server is under more stress than usual mainly because of the first time uploads everybody is going through. Once the majority has done that, things should improve.
