Well we knew it would come sooner or later!
UPDATE : SONY has finished their maintenance and PSN is now back online. It has been confirmed that jailbreak users still cannot get online. That pretty much means we are SOL for now (for you non-english speaking folks, that means we are Shit Out of Luck). I hope you all got the DLC and PSN games that you needed to. This little adventure cost me over $100 in the store
Jailbroken Console: <- (vs.) -> Legit v3.50 Console:
So far 2 people have reported to me (AUS / EUR) that they are being asked to update to get on PSN now. I have confirmation this is now blocked in Canada and the USA as well. Time to look for a new way to get online. *Glad i bought up all that DLC now*. Actually, based on the many posts, this is affecting people world wide, every region.
Additional news is starting to trickle in. Users on a legit 3.50 firmware are able to sign into PSN without any issues, it seems to only be affecting the jailbroken consoles so it looks like this may have been patched. Please keep checking this main post as i will try and update it with as much info as i get.
It does look like there is scheduled maintenance going on in some world regions but that does not account for why people in NA are getting errors. I figure i will post this as well so we have all the info possible. Before we totally freak out, lets also assume this MAY be related to maintenance.
Anyone else having problems reply with the following:'The PlayStation Network is offline for scheduled maintenance from 16:05 on Thursday 18 November 2010 until 01:00 on Friday 19 November 2010, GMT. This is for Europe however it also generally means there will be downtime for the US as well, we expect the official US announcement later today.
During the maintenance, you will be unable to access the following services:
* PlayStation Store on PS3 and PSP.
* PlayStation Network Account Management.
* PlayStation Network Account Registration.
In addition, you will not be able to sign in to PlayStation Network from eu.playstation.com. If you wish to play online during the maintenance, please ensure you sign in to PSN before 16:05 on Thursday 18 November 2010 GMT (about 11:05 EST).
