back to article Sony DENIES PlayStation Network WOBBLES despite gamer GRIPES

An unknown number of gamers have been kicked off of Sony's PlayStation Network, but the company is continuing to insist that its service is stable.

        It didn't effect me but I've heard it hit Xbox too. Wasn't one of the Sony execs airplane diverted due to a fake bomb threat too?

    Same problems here

    It went down before lunch and has been back up about an hour (approx 15:30 when it came back). I'm in the UK. Were these problems UK/EU only or worldwide?

    this is why you shouldn't rely on an evil corporation to run your gameservers. if we lived in a civilized country (which we dont) everyone would have fibre broadband and a PC. The person with the best PC can host the server as well. that's the way its ALWAYS been until these SCUM companies got involved.

      Is it? Back when I was heavily into FPS games, anything less than a dedicated server was regarded as sub-standard. Everyone in the clan used to chip in £1 per month to rent our own server.

    I held off buying the PS4 due to the bs I see alot with the PS3. I belong in a clan for the KZ3 game, we are 80 some members strong and we have determined to leave the PS arena and join the XBOX family. Maybe PS will realize money isn't the only thing.

      But they know that. There's also CONTROL, and they want BOTH.

      You should go read up about it first :

      Lastly, FameGod states that Xbox is his next Hacking Project under codename "Project Micro" and added:

      See atleast Xbox and Microsoft are smart and dont operate on one datacenter. Sony your f**king aids.

      I doubt changing consoles will erradicate such issues.

    I live in Nebraska, PSN is still down for me on my PS4. An occasional maintenance message pops up when attempting to do anything.

    Down near Fort Stewart, GA

    It has been down on my PS4 since this morning. I've constantly checked the website where it states they are stable... I even called Comcast to have them send a refresh to my modem. I'm getting almost 49 Mbps!!!!

    Having Issues aswell, get to the screen to pick which User I want to use. Select mine and nothing happens, cant select between any other ones its like its frozen. Put the PS4 into standby mode then turn it back on and the games show up but cant scroll through them almost as if the controller isnt working. Get the Network Maintenance message and thats it....Honestly Sony lets go....

    Down on my PS4 aswell, get to the screen where you select which User you want to use, you know where it sais Guest or any other users you have on there, click on one and its like it freezes. Put PS4 into standby mode and then turn back on, pops up in main menu but cant select nor move the selecting box onto anything? Anyone else got this? All it tells me besides that is Network Maintenance
