Can’t connect to Playstation Network?

February 28, 2010 in NEWS

That’s because Playstation Network is down….and good. From what I have gathered it seems to only affect the older models (not the PS3 slims). Death_by_me_75 first brought this to my attention when he could not log on to play so HQ with me. We troubleshot and went through all his settings, and they were all correct. He called his cable company and they had word of the PSN outage. Then CanadianK1ng sends me an email of some “virus” attack PSN servers. So I have done much searching and found just the above info, for the most part. I have seen some blogs stating that people are losing their trophy information. This is unconfirmed, but I would recommend that you stick in your usb stick and back up anyway. Here is more info cut and pasted from Sony Playstation’s Twitter account:



PSN status update (part 2): Readers/followers are confirming that “slim” units (120/250 GB models) are connecting normally.

PSN status update: We’re narrowing down the issue and continue to work to restore service to all. Updates as soon as we have them.

We’re aware that many of you are having problems connecting to PSN, and yes, we’re looking into it. Stay tuned for updates.
