PSN Maintenance scheduled for Monday 21st April

26 Replies 5,845 Views Created 16-04-2014

Hi guys,

There is PSN Maintenance scheduled for Monday 21st April from 17:50 until 23:50 BST
 
For the duration of the maintenance you will be unable to login to Account Management and the PS Store. PS Home will also be unavailable.
 

Online gameplay will be available to users who have recently signed into their SEN account and have their authentication details cached.

 

Users who do not have their details cached, will not be able to sign-in to their account or begin an online gaming session.

There may be some additional downtime after the maintenance period for testing purposes.
 
Any questions please ask.
 
SFZ

How recently do you have to have signed in to game online?

 

Does signing in on the Playstation App count?

24 hours should be fine but do it on the day to be sure.

 

You will have to do it on the console you intend to use during the maintenance.

I think its 12 or 24 hours so I don't see why people even need to complain as they've either recently signed in anyway, or are at home and can just log in before the maintenance starts!

I'm sure they know there is less traffic on bank holidays just like the weekends. My friends list is always smaller at weekends then through the week.

You can't all be pleased and no time is the right time!

But just sign in before it starts and voila!

How thick do the US team have to be not to check holidays in other countries? Considering the issues the store has with content out in the US and not the UK, I can't believe this has to be the one thing that is centralised!

Why is on any other forum they have a maintenance tab/ area and on this forum it's under support as a topic drowned out by "I can't login" posts surely this would be a more effective and easier way of displaying and informing people, better yet the technology is there so that you could send a message to every PSN user by means of a maintenance notification on the PS4 or message on PS3.

Example : http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/

ps. I found out about the maintenance by playing final fantasy XIV by the login screen and it's not even there network.

I just can't get my head around it, is it really that hard to do and implement something like this?
You can get an app, phone, PS3, PS4, TV, MP3 Player, Blu-Ray / 4K / DVD player all to communicate with each other yet the only machine you can't is the human being,

if it's a problem with talking with people I know the feeling as I do to as I hate talking over a headset on the PS4, hate it when randoms send you a message or friend request (I accept only ones where they say they are off these forums and even then they have to get past my own guidelines (100+ posts, another 10+ things I can't be bothered to type, with the important one being that they have been on the forum for a few years)) and I hate face to face conversations as no doubt I will say a rubbish conversation startup line, something stupid and out of context (usually my internal monologue asking a question then me saying the answer out loud eg: I wonder if that women can compete with pipa's bum?), I don't drink (ok I have can a month), I don't smoke, and the answer to your "I bet this guy is single" is yes and as this being proof that I am rubbish with communication as this whole post makes no sense (apart from the first 8 lines (including returns)) may I ask you if there are any positions going? ;)


Thank-you

No, it's over.

 

Make sure the time & date is correct on your PS3 (set it 'via internet'), delete the store icon & download it again then check.

Go to the Store icon, press triangle then select delete, to download it again just press X on it. 

 

Here's the info on that error code if it helps - 8002A221

Could be related to that error code you got? Have you tried resetting your password just in case?

 

After you set it 'via internet' is the time correct? That summer time setting isn't on is it?
