I have been trying for 3 weeks now to create a new psn account ( I am currently in Korea, so this account is useless for me to play the korean bf3 online )
but every time I try it says there is maintenance.
What am I suppose to do? I just need to simply create an account so I can play online....
Hi, welcome to the forums!
Is it a US PS3? If you speak Korean I'd suggest giving the Korean PlayStation customer service a try. Beyond that I honestly don't know though maybe one of our forum members who lives in Asia can be a bit more help.
I was having this same issue for a while. I got around it by going to https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/reg/account/create-account!input.action?request_locale=.... After signing up, log in if you aren't automatically logged in. In the 'Devices' tab, click 'Playstation 3 Systems'. There will be a link in the right section that says 'Update Account' or something similar. Click that link. It will then ask you more questions such as what you want your handle to be, security question, etc. After completing all of the steps there, you'll get an account saying "Your account is ready to access the Playstation Network." You can then use that account to log in and play online.
Hope it helps. Good luck!
P.S. I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I live in the U.S. and was getting the same message. This is what worked for me. You may have to do this through the Korean version of the website linked above if you want a Korean account. I have no way of test that out.
