Pfizer should send Sony some crates of Viagra to help them with PSN, because Sony apparently can't get it up on their own

:P

Well, I missed (by a long shot) my initial prediction of May 3rd, but I still think it's not going to be up this weekend.

Anyone that expects PSN to go back up today or any time this weekend will be sorely disappointed. I mean, when has Sony taken any kind of initiative during the weekend?

Oh, there is something happening, that's for sure. But it seems whatever is happening isn't 100% stable just yet, so I don't think the floodgates are going to open unless Sony is certain everything's going to be super smooth. So what I'm guessing is: DevNet will be 100% during the weekend, then maybe on Monday or Tuesday, some world regions will have access to PSN (or maybe a select few "testers" - PSN+ guys, maybe?), and then on Wednesday-Thursday the rest of the plebs might be granted passage into the PSN Realm.

Of course that's just speculation on my side. I'm no Michael Pachter :P

Also this. Launching a service on a Friday is a huge no-no.

A small update: They've been doing QA on the network since earlier this week, on several games with no issues. Everything seems to be running smoothly, so full restoration is likely going to happen soon.

VICTORY DANCE! Thanks for the update, Kagari. Hopefully I'm wrong and it does come up sometime during the weekend. I'd love to be able to play some co-op with my friends.

I think they'll put it back online as soon as humanly possible. They wouldn't wait a minute longer than they had to, simply to make sure it comes back on a certain day of the week. If I were them, I'd do it way before Monday/Tuesday. That way, word could get around that PSN is back, and more people would likely rush out and buy games on New Release Tuesday.

No offense Kagari but I'll believe it when I see it. I just don't have anymore faith in Sony at this point. They should be the ones giving us these updates. Yet they aren't. At the same time they've missed their date several times. So I predict it won't be up for another 6 years.

they can like it quietly, and in shame, so the rest of us can remember that acting like an adult in public is still a basic social practice in these internet states of america

honestly, every american at age 13 should be shown a picture of an anthropomorphic animal, and if they go "cool!!" they should be put in a box and that box should be lit on fire and tossed into chesapeake bay

Your choice, but I'm not going to call out the people giving me information in case it hurts their job. Their updates would still be "we're working on it!"

Oh no no no. Don't think I'm saying you should be calling them out. I don't think that at all. I totally understand keeping their names secret and don't doubt them. I'm just saying that Sony could learn from the updates you're giving us. That's how they should be updating us.

And the remark about Sony was meant more as a they'll find some way to fuck it up remark. Hence I'll believe it when I see it actually up.

Why should they be giving you updates on the tests they're doing on the developers network?

Get one of your inside contacts to smuggle out a milestone point on the internal testing. 80-90% or something like that.

On my CFW ps3, when i highlight PSN store it now shows content but obviously, i can't log in on this system. On my 60gig system which i just got back from Sony, it won't show anything, and it doesn't let me sign up.

I'm pretty sure the psn icon wasn't showing any preview content before. Could it have something to do with being in 3.55 on one system?

that said, i see no reason to doubt what Kagari is saying here, and there's supporting evidence, so early next week seems like a safe bet at the moment. i hope so.

i wasn't even going to play Mortal Kombat online, but i'll take her out for a spin now. looking forwards to some Motorstorming too.
