Didn't see this posted (surprised about that)

Global releases never seem to go well for any company and today, Sony is no different. Home Community Manager, TedTheDog over on the Playstation Home Forums has stated that they are having some issues with the release so it is delayed until these can be resolved.



"Testing complete and a couple of technical problems have been found. We need to iron these issues out first and I'm waiting to hear how long that might take (I'm not qualified to even guess, its very technical). Apologies, I know you all want to get in but we must get these things right. And please remember, this is a beta and today is our first step into the Open Beta environment and what we're doing today is part of the beta process itself. "

That could mean its only delayed for like an hour or it could mean a day. Just keep checking HERE for an update.

The full rundown so far

  • Technical updates are progressing and as you have probably seen the 1.03 patch is available for existing users already but the service remains unavailable whilst work is carried out
  • Service should be back up everywhere early PM UK time although theres no specific time as theres a long list of actions being worked through in Europe, America, Asia and Japan
  • New comers to the service will find the Home icon on their XMB once we activate it. You wont have to look for it, it will be easy to spot and will appear under PlayStation®Network. However, if you are online on your PS3 when we activate it you will need to restart your PS3 for it to appear. Watch these forums for news on when that is. It will work like [email protected] in that the icon will be there and you'll download the service when you first select it.

**Edit 3pm**

Still progressing nicely, now on the testing stage. No eta still as I wouldnt want to guess how long it will take for each region to verify its elements are working but we're getting there.


**Edit 3:15pm**

Not there yet, the testing is still going on, but I wanted to mention a couple of other things that need clarification.
The Far Cry2 and Uncharted spaces will not be available in our region today as the localisation and testing phase is not yet complete. They will follow on later.
Additonally the Diesel and Ligne Roset content will be added next week at the same time as the Red Bull Air Race.



**Edit 4:25pm**

Has anyone else had their PS3 freeze on the XMB? Mine did today and it's been pretty slow all day with the PSN Store not working at all. :|

Yea you can update to 1.03 if you were in the closed beta, but when you try to go online there is a connection error.

So basically there is nothing until they fully update it.

Apologies for the delay in an update, you may have noticed a PSN outage in the last hour. Things seem back on track now although the outage delayed us a little we are moving again. Hope to have another update soon.

Reminds me of the great Konami issues with MGS4 online. What a joke, 2yrs in the planning and it stumbles at the open beta stage. I know, I know its a Beta before the flaming starts. Thank god PSN is free.

I dont remember any of them. They didn't affect me even if they were real.

This however does affect me because they have slapped a 2 year delay on this ****. Its getting ridiculous now.

"As you may have noticed, Xbox Live has been a little wonky as of late and, according to Microsoft's latest status update, it looks like it could stay that way for at least a little while longer. "

"Since Microsoft knew you were tired of having your holiday break marred by the annoyingly frequent news of Xbox Live outages, they've decided to redefine the verbage, newspeak style.

Xbox Live outage: day 11, "up and running", except not

Xbox Live outage, day 13: still up and down, still preventing fun from being had






Must not play your Xbox much. Maybe you had the RROD for all of last year and early this year? Now those outages are embarassing at 60 bucks a year. And even if they didnt affect the almighty YOU, they did affect alot of people. Way to be self-centred tho bud.

Very sorry about the delay here. The PSN outage really set us back a while but things are picking up again. And apologies for the delay in updates, I had to get home to continue with this. Looks like we're not far off now though. Message Edited by TedTheDog on 11-12-2008 08:18 PM

not long now hopefully

This is the cyber equivalent of all your neighbors wandering into the street in their slippers when a fire engine comes storming down your road. They then start speculating, congregate in a huddle and ask one another the same questions and repeat the same statements, all with their hands to their mouths in shock.

"What's happened?" "What's going on?" "Is anyone hurt?" "I wonder what's going on."

Concluded with a "Well, I'm not surprised. Daft cow probably left her chip pan on."

It turns out Janet's house is on fire.

Crisis brings people together!
