I have been trying to sign in to PSN all day and it isn't letting me, and i asked some of my friends and it's not working for them either, so could PSN be down again?
PSN Down again?
The thing I don't understand is why with regularly scheduled maintenance like this, they can't have a better error message when you try to log in. Right now I get "An error has occurred. You have been signed out of Playstation Network" - seems like "The Playstation Network is currently down for maintenance. The maintenance is expected to last until 2am Pacific" would be much better. That saves me having to Google whether it's a problem with my system or with PSN.
Genuine question - is there a reason that anyone knows of why they can't do that?
@iseemonsters: During normal maintenance i think they do have a message saying so, but it looks like the maintenance is more extensive then normal so that message is not coming up.
Thanks! Despite owning a PS3 for over a year I guess I've just never tried to sign on when the system was down for maintenance!
And sometimes when I boot up the app, it doesn't even say anything, it just brings me right into my stuff. But if it won't let you sign in initially, just keep trying. After about three tries it should open up. It will let you in.
Is anyone still experiencing some weird behavior on PSN?
Online gaming seems ok, but if I try to get to the store or my account info, it keeps showing the "service under maintenance" prompt. It doesn't always shows up, and after a couple tries I was able to enter the store and even download some demo, but the popup kept showing up at times...
