Yes it is, I wonder if this is the planned maintenance that was supposed to happen on Thursday.

I have to admit Xbox doesn't go down very often, certainly nowhere near as often as PSN.

 

That said it makes sense as more people pay for Xbox Live so they have more money to invest in the service.  They also have the advantage of a history of software engineering and knowing the OS on their servers inside and out.

We're back up baby :D

 

It is probably none of our business at all but I am always curious as to what it is they do especially for such a long maintenence this time.

The most believeable rumour is that is was to fix the PSN issues between the Vita and PS3, such as Vita owners not showing on a PS3's friends list

 

Of course it could just be that the hackers are trying to get into Sony again and theiy're merely tightening up the network security

 

We'll just have to wait and see if they tell us anything after it's done

Yeah, I can sign in but not much else is working

 

Nothing seems to have changed either, especially with Vita/PS3 friends list issues

Anyone been experience problems with psn since the maintainance?  It keeps periodically signing me out of psn when playing a game.  I've tested the internet connection, at that is fine.
