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.

Just to confirm, has anyone besides the op confirmed that this is true?
I've had several people confirm to me in private that work for several different places, and no I'm not going to give their names away out of respect for those people.

you don´t think there is something happening..?

I see it like something is beginning to rise..

 
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

No one in their right mind launches anything IT-related before a weekend. I would be extremely surprised to see PSN go live for the average user before Monday.
Also this. Launching a service on a Friday is a huge no-no.

true, from experience, test everything over the weekend before it launches at the beginning of the week

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.

That's clearly a sunset. Are you implying something?

I'm calling these two winners-

May 17 - Winterblink, D4Danger

It makes more sense to do Monday/Tuesday.
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.

For the life of me, I can't understand why so many are threatened by people liking a children's show.
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!"

Define soon.

Next 3 days?

how about you avoid the risk of "hurt[ing] their job" by not bringing it up at all? omg!

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?

B-B-BUT MY SEXUALITY IS BEING QUESTIONED BY PONY AVATARS! BAN THEM!

Kagari: So basically, expect it up next week at this rate then? :|

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

Funny that some people don't believe you but they would believe twitter or some random blog site judging from past threads.

Who can believe Kagari!? SHE'S A GIRL MOD! THEY LIE!

(USER WAS BANNED FOR BEING SEXIST)

Honestly, I believe Kagari. I just want the service to come back up so I can finally play Portal 2 damn it. :|
 
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?

i take everything on a case by case basis.

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.

How do you know someone is a regular user? I mean, I can be God but yeah you don't believe that.
Its a joke referencing eurogamer calling Kagari a 'user'.
