Sony Says Play On - PSN Restoration Officially Begins Now!


Sponsored Links
171w ago - Following the release of PS3 Firmware 3.61 and the PSN restoration announcement from Kazuo Hirai, Sony's Senoir Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media Patrick Seybold tells PSN users to 'play on' confirming that PlayStation Network restoration officially begins now.

To quote: Thank you for your patience and encouragement over the last few weeks. As covered in the post from earlier today, you can now update the firmware on your PS3 and change your password. Kazuo Hirai just announced that we have begun the phased restoration by region of some of the services, starting with online multiplayer functionality.

Please note that these services will take a bit of time to be turned on and rolled out to the whole country. The process has begun and some states are being turned on now, so please be patient as we reach your city and state. Well be updating the map below as service comes online in individual states.

It will take several hours to restore PSN throughout the entire country, so please keep checking back for the latest updates. In the meantime, nows a great time to get your PS3s firmware updated and change your password, both of which are required to get online.

Notice: If your state is illuminated but your service has not yet been restored, please be patient it can take a little while for the servers to populate fully.

I'm in Europe ... so I still can't try to do anything, but I think I'll have a little problem:

My PS3 broke down during the PSN downtime. I sold it, because someone wanted to have that 40 Gb fat ps3. (maybe hoping some repair service will manage to get it back running) Well, in any case: I've bought a new PS3 and wanted to start playing again. However: According to recent announcements you need the PS3 on which a PSN account was activated before the PSN failure.

I so sincerely hope Sony has some kind of plan for such cases. Considering the number of PS3s out there I guess I'm not the only one affected ... after all: Though the technical-failure-rate may be low, some always break down ... and those people (including me) still have the right to access their own PSN accounts abd bought PSN contents. But: How?

I agree with you totally, a game share between specific registered consoles should be supported for OFW console's in situations like yours.
I have an OFW online console and CFW offline console for similar reasons

Yeah dead right am not going to be spending 40 quid for majority of games that give you a days game play and gathers dust , rent it play occasionally at your leisure , each time cod and FIFA comes out need to buy 3 copies of each for me and my two sons.

have 5 ps3 in the house and should be an official way the 3 of us can enjoy 1 game without me having to spend 150 quid each time , so yeah I'm having the cake , cherry and the custard but won't go on line with my CFW as that's wrong.

...or you can sell your 3.55 CFW PS3 and buy the games on your Legitimate PS3.
Cake and eating it springs to mind...

Sent from my SGS.
