Supposedly Sony is doing maintenance now. Weird timing around Xmas, but I guess they had to do so anyway. Might as well now that the Network is down anyway. Hopefully it's up and running again tomorrow. I'd really love to play Dragon Age 3 now…
After a lot of messing about I managed to get lucky enough to experience some PS4 PSN activity, enough so that I could go through the account updating precedures to the point a verification Email needed to be sent.
An email was not sent, after a hour of waiting. So I requested another. But the whole process was too long for me to want to continue anymore, so I went onto the PC SEN website and am requesting a verification Email every 20 minutes or so.
This whole thing really sucks, when are they going to get their network working properly!?
Edit. Trying to play DA3 without PSN. But it turns out you need to connect your PSN to Origin. Gonna try without it anyway..
Edit2 Nope. Won't work, PSN is still out. This is the moment you guys ought to understand my hate towards online-only functions in games. I can't even start up a single player game now! And I need PSN for only 10 to 30 seconds.
Hmm, I think what Ryan from Lizard Squad said about hacking the server to force kids spending time with their families instead of playing games was just an excuse. Sure, they did it for their amusement, but they can't hack to force kids spending time with their families. There may also lots of adults who can't log in (including you, Heather and Ratchetruler)!
I also think that some video games could unite a family. A4O is a good example. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I remember, ESRB rated it E, which means it's the perfect game for the family
