PSN back online

Brian Turner

May 15, 2011

The PlayStation Network is coming back online today. However, it will not be fully functioning until the end of the month.

That’s according to a new statement from Sony, who announced that restoration of the PSN and Qriosity services would begin today in phased stages.

This will occur on a country-by-country basis across the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Middle East.

According to the statements, the first phase of restored services for these countries and regions will include:

  • Sign-in for PlayStation Network and Qriocity services, including the resetting of passwords
  • Restoration of online game-play across PS3 and PSP
  • Playback rental video content, if within rental period, of PlayStation Network Video Delivery Service on PS3, PSP and MediaGo
  • Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity, for current subscribers, on PS3 and PC
  • Access to 3rd party services such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and MLB.tv
  • ‘Friends’ category on PS3, including Friends List, Chat Functionality, Trophy Comparison, etc
  • PlayStation Home

Sony have also promised new security measures in order to safeguard the PSN against further attacks, with stronger encryption, more firewalls, and better vulnerability testing using third-party security companies.

While that’s good news for PS3 fans, not least some of the rather rabid commentators who flooded to TW when the PSN network was down, there is still little news on what may or may not have been compromised in the original attack.

While the word on the web is that credit card companies have not yet seen any malicious activity they can tie to the PlayStation Network hack attack, Sony does not seem entirely sure about what exact data has been stolen, which remains a little worrying.

Additionally, while no doubt there will be cheers that the process of recovering the PSN has begun today, do not expect it to be running with full functionality.

That means prepare for disappointment if you’re looking to log on for Black Ops today, because Sony have made it clear the restoration process is going to last through until the end of the month.

And once the PSN is back online and running smoothly, no doubt we have yet to see many awkward questions asked of Sony, not least by regulators who now have to sift through the details of what remains a potential privacy timebomb.

  23. treadstone says:

    ** It is not online yet as this site has alarmed to everyone ** The 3.61 update is only preparatory work. North America first, then Europe.

  24. will says:

    i hurd black opps aint gonna work straight away

  25. treadstone says:

    Click on Internet Browser on the XMB for the latest update. You cant eben change your password yet like the update has suggested you could.

  26. martin says:

    sick of fifa single player, i hope it returns later today

  27. benbancroft89 says:

    BOOM PSN back online in the UK. Just downloaded the update and loaded black ops!

  28. binky says:

    im in uk done the firmware update then reset n cannot sign in yet. i will try later gana watch newcastle vs chelsea match

  29. Dom says:

    Yo apparently the CEO of Sony has said online functionality is working and it will once your change your password on your account. Should be working once you’ve done that.

  30. Phil C says:

    sign in doesn’t say password incorrect though, still says PSN is down for maintenace. They need to tell poeple if this is the case, on xmb or via PS3 error message, not on a website a fraction of people will ever read.

  31. Leelee says:

    yo Lets hope its on today! Missed around a month of gaming man!! s/s update did take a couple of go’s to dl it know is done just waiting till its up in uk!

  32. jake says:

  33. brydon says:

    same come on newcastle!!! that will keep me goin till MW2 tonight HOPEFULLY. where u from binky

  34. treadstone says:

    After doing the 3.61 update you just got to wait and sit it out..until you get in. Keep trying to get on but I bet it wont be today.

  35. Rikstation says:

    So when I too downloaded the update, Restarted the system and still cannot sign on. I opened the browser and was shown a PS3 page saying at the bottom that i will need to change the password here first
    https://store.playstation.com/login.gvm
    But this page just says that PS3 is still down and i cannot change my password or even attempt to log in with my old password.
    If anyone else has been able to successfully change their password, please update the rest odf how here on how you did this.
    Thanks

  36. jake says:

    basicly guys i just want sum gay fun im not looking for someone fat or disabled and certainly no one hairy add me on face book its JAKE D’ARCY xxxxxxx

  37. Rikstation says:

    Also From the Uk by the way, Hows it going for you guys in the US any laggy on-line play, or is all smooth, Any noticeable differences

  38. Razor! says:

    Sup guys, just called Play Station customer service line. They said the services will resume in the European region at around 4pm. Looks like more of the waiting game for us for now… -_- :/

  39. treadstone says:

    ** Rikstation – its the same for me mate, cant change password.

  40. Rikstation says:

    Nice one Razor, thanks for the update

  41. psn says:

    they have just put tyhe update on so you all feel asif psn will be back online soon but you still gonna have to wait till 31st of may because you still cant sign in and you still wont be able to play black ops until may 31st when i first got my ps3 psn was down and this update was already on my machine when i turned it on for the first time dont be fooled by sonys tactics to try and make you think it will be online and you canplay black ops today cos u cant …

  42. Leelee says:

    they are saying, when its up and running in the uk (today) ya ok heard this befor, anyway when is up and running, then you go to sign in, it will tell you to change your p/w then.

  43. uhm says:

    Psn stop talking bs you know nothing

  44. waiting... says:

    nh m8 wen u try sign in u will notice 1 of the new security changes of the new system, witch will make u change ur password. u dont have to manually find any website or anything, we just have to wait for the maintenance to go away

    just want to play fifa11 and other games online

  45. It wont be back in Europe for a couple of hours**.. I have a dutch ps3 but i live in France :p but the order i think is US then Uk then rest of Europe they don’t want to do it all at the same time because it might over populate the servers and itl crash and we’d be back at step one…

  46. Ben dover init says:

    My balls are gigantic and cement for men

  47. blackkk opsssss and i have homefront but never played it online!!

  48. Ben dover init says:

    Aaaaaarrrghggghggggggg

  49. Greetings from New York! PSN is up and running BABY! For the people who want to know the steps that we went thought in order to gain access to the PSN, are as follows;

    1. *on screen message* Your password is no longer vaild, this needs to be changed. Do it now? select yes
    2. It takes you through the steps in order to change your password.
    3. Once new password is created, go to sing in, input new password, and enjoy the little display message on the top right hand corner stating *Singed In*
    hope it heped, peace xD

  74. Tim says:

    Have just updated to 3.61, PSN not yet back up in Oxford, UK. C’mon, turn on the switch, can’t wait to get back Black Ops, Killzone 3, Fifa and GT5! All is forgiven Sony, we love you.

  75. I 1 2 4 Q! says:

    HA HA HA HA! GOD DAMN BRITISH LOSERS! PSN IS BACK UP IS USA! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! xP

  76. Robbo81 says:

    It’s mint cos all those punks on cfw 3.50 won’t be able to ever get back online!! Ha ha suppose there’s always Xbox- along with all the other impatient fuckers who can’t wait three weeks. I’m buying up all the ps3s off eBay to sell back to the traitors for stupid money once they get sick of x-toss

  77. Tim says:

    All the impatient ppl who traded in for xbox, will have trade back now! Especially with the new improved PSN, free games and exclusives this year like Resistance 3, Infamous 2 and Uncharted 3. All is forgiven Sony, hope you catch the f**king b**stard hackers that did this, or hopefully they have been run over by a car.

  78. Leelee says:

    you can still use 3.50 fw bypass new fw :)

  79. Tim says:

    Just can just taste Black Ops again! :) :) :)

  80. will says:

    i like it how america is online yet i bet it was americans that hacked psn

  81. Tim says:

    Yeah, I bet it was American nerds that hacked it. It’s almost certain the FBI or Homeland Security will catch them – hope they are punished harshly. I personally want to beat the sh*t out of them. Sony has almost certainly laid traps in the network, to catch them if they try again and notify the FBI immediately.

  82. Robbo81 says:

    @ leelee. How? It’s fw3.61 now not 3.60! I hope they kill ur ps as soon as u turn it on! Ha ha . Microsoft did.

  83. Leelee says:

    but the server is in u.s they are like lil goats they are testing it befor they switch over users on

  84. will says:

    i hope bin ladens followers bomb the bastards lol

  85. turner says:

    have done update and still not on. uk birmingham.

  86. Tim says:

    If the hackers were American, can I ask our American PSN friends to find out the hackers home addresses and publish them on the internet. Please then feel free to beat the sh*t out of them, vandalise their property or firebomb their house, personal revenge like you did with Bin Laden!

  87. Robbo81 says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if custom firmware users turned their ps3s on only to find out it’s a £300 paperweight ?!

  88. will says:

    sony are being wankers why cant they just press there little button on their keyboard and turn the bastard on for everyone

  89. dave says:

    HAHAHA Americans are sad still on here when there back online what weirdos

  90. Tim says:

    @will – m8, Sony are phasing the switch on, if we all came back on at the same time the network will probably crash. We waited nearly 4 weeks, just hold on a little longer.

  91. will says:

    i got an idea anyone in uk play black opps add me wen its on willmad89

  92. Tim says:

    I’m going to play Black Ops and imagine shooting the f**king hackers. Somebody should bring out a game where we can pretend to shoot and kill the PSN hackers. With a bit of luck, somebody might get inspiration and do it in real life. :)

  93. will says:

    me two ill get proppa agressive with my ak47

  94. Leelee says:

    or even the a crossbow to the head? with a dog bitting them? lol

  95. gooner says:

    USA went online first, cos the lazy fat bastards were still in the same position as 3 weeks ago, sat in front of their fkn tv’s

  96. will says:

    how about the dog biting their cock lol

  97. katie says:

    Lol, love your comment Tim.
    Looks like we are going to have to be even more patient! Still not working here in Kent.

  98. waiting... says:

    sony this is BS!. we wouldn’t of all got back on at the same time, i would of been on at 00.45AM last night wen it let me update, an would of been playing fifa11 team play all night long. then be waking up about now

    if its not up an running by 4 or 5, then i guess they are probaby planning on switching on in the middle of the night witch is GAY

  99. scottish girl999 says:

  145. Pete says:

  146. luke says:

  147. david says:

  149. waiting... says:

  150. Robbo81 says:

  155. Ben dover init says:

    Barnsley still down fuckin fuckety fuck fuck

  156. Katie says:

    Argh! Why can’t they let us know if we are going to get back online anytime today?!

  157. Tim says:

    In Oxford, psn still down. Everyone must have got the 3.61 by now. Hope it comes up today, wanna get some Black Ops before work 2mo. I can wait for 2mo though, if it comes to that, already waited 4 weeks! Will get some more trophies on GT5.

  158. sp says:

    my psn still aint working im in bristol,england. i did have alot of patience at start but this is beyond a joke now HURRY UP!!

  159. Tim says:

    Sony turned on the US State by State, they will probably do the same in Europe, working left to right, it will be Portugal first, then Spain/France, then Ireland and then eventually UK and the rest.

  160. Tim says:

    lol, just read apparently the Caribbean are back online.

  161. freedom says:

    psn you sit a say these guys need to get a job, as they are obssesed with the PSN, yet you sit there with the most post shut the fuck up you bitch, your as bad as sony for bullshittin saying its back up in london then five minutes late says it done again grow uo you immature fuck. Even tho ofcourse your probably a lonely old fuck with no life and for the past 3 to 4 weeks the PSN has been down youve pokin yer arse so do everyone a favour and just shut the fuck up !

  162. FUNKmilitia says:

    Makes sense they are on before us geographically

  163. Tim says:

    They must be monitoring things before turning PSN online in Europe, the US is happily playing on PSN at the moment. So they must be just holding back until they are confident the network can cope with both US and Europe, who probably make up 90% of all PS3 users outside Japan.

  164. Tim says:

    To be honest if it is not up in the next couple of hours, doubt it will be up in the UK today. :( But hey, it will be up 2mo for sure though. Something to look forward to after work.

  165. psn says:

  183. Rikstation says:

    Ok so for me,
    I Sign in and it says “Your Password is no longer valid, You must change your password”
    I press OK Then wait 5-10 seconds and then get “An Error has occurred (80710D36)”

    Anyone else having this issue??

  184. hussain says:

  191. voodoo says:

    guessing that each region coming back, but with limited “slots” every hour or so, so the weight of traffic doesn’t bring it crashing back down. thats a guess, patience required on this one….

    anyone up for pes 2011 when its up, add me, VOODOO-CHIPMUNK

  199. voodoo says:

    all my xbox is good for is keepin the dust from the nice shelf it sits on. no wireless, i no built in batteries, subscription charge, then theres no blueray, no 3d. and it was offline for 2 weeks shortly after i got it over 3 year ago. ad i had 3 of them cause they used a cheapo motherboard. its hardly been the next gen revolution…..

  203. sp says:

    mine still saying error and now for some reason it wont let me sign in on me old password there saying its incorrect! JOKE

  204. ww_6019K says:

    Won’t be stable for a good few days yet – horrendous lag problems in New York, friends kicked off in other states, friend in Holland only got five minutes gameplay before getting kicked off. Better to leave it well alone until stabilized, perhaps at the end of the month or early June. Patience is key.

  205. Tom says:

    Got about 4 hours of Black Ops and some GT5 last night. :) Was working fine with no lag in the UK until I went to bed at 12, there were about 400,000 ppl on Black Ops matchmaking throughout the evening. I changed my password at 7 pm yesterday no problem.

  206. Tom says:

    Have read that some ppl still having problems with password resets. Loads of us are back at work/school today, so I reckon Sony will be able to stabilise everything and get through the backlog today.

  207. tris says:

    i downloaded update yesterday then had to wait a few hours (kept trying to sign in). eventually it came up with a reset password option, so i changed my password and played some black ops online.. playstation store is still down, and if you try selecting it or account management it freezes up for a while before saying maiantence but you can play online…

  208. Tom says:

    Does anyone know if PS3 Portal 2 co-op works now? If so, I will be buying a copy.
