PlayStation Store not going up today or tomorrow

Contrary to reports, Sony says the PlayStation 3's online commerce presence won't be back online today; May 31 still deadline; some maintenance happening today.

Last week, unconfirmed reports had the PlayStation Store coming back online on sometime on May 24. However, this morning, Sony quickly nipped that rumor in the bud, saying that the PlayStation 3's online commerce presence won't be back online today--or even tomorrow.

The PlayStation Store won't be back online anytime today…or tomorrow.

"Contrary to reports, the store will not be publishing today," said Sony Computer Entertainment America social media manager Jeff Rubenstein on the US PlayStation Blog.

Over on the European PlayStation blog, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe blog manager James Gallagher went one step further on the EU PS Blog, saying that the PS Store "will not be reopening tomorrow, but we will let you know here as soon as the date is confirmed." Officially, the target for restoration of the PlayStation store is the end of the month.

Both men's comments come as the PlayStation begins undergoing maintenance today from around 8 a.m.-5 p.m. PDT. "During this time, registration and account management will be inaccessible, including the password reset process," said Rubenstein. "While some users may experience difficulty signing in to PSN, the majority of consumers will be able to play online, as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one)."

I was just in time to download "Dead Nation" , I can see why this game was offered for free ! I did'nt expect nor ask for anything from The Store or complained about Sony at all ! but this game is worthless crap and just a clutter to my files , I wish I could send it back with a (NO THANKS) memo ! there needs to be some more single plater add-ons for extentions of the original games ! I think i'll go back to bed - take care Guys !

looks like PSN is down for now... Hopefully for that 2nd update that they mentioned? Either or I'll actually be surprised if it really is up by the end of the week. PSP go = worst idea ever right about now ha ha

I don't think the store will be back by Mid-June as Sony is doing very little to boot it up. They won't even announce when it will be back. So i assume it's going to be 2nd week of July.

Sony has really b**chslapped their users with the reward. A lot of people already own infamous since it was released rather early and the same goes for little big planet which already came free with the mother s***ingg console. The rest are fairly rubbish in my opinion (maybe not dead nation, but I wasn't impressed by the demo). The Playstation plus 30 days isn't exactly great either seeing as the store has now been down for over 40 days and the fat that eventually (almost) everything gets dropped down to the regular playstation store.

@Sony "Don't Talk about it, Be about it." Like WWE The Rock Quotes. "Just Bring It!"

its may 31st here. Sony has yet got anything to say to us. still no date when its coming up. sony fan boys will prob defend sony by telling me to get a life but i am going to say it, i really, really want to download tactics orgre on psp, been meaning since the start of outage and i haven't bought any games since its been real boring these days. But I can forgive sony if they get it up tomorrow, since 31st May is the deadline, tomorrow they'll have gone past the deadline, which is when they need to explain to us what's going on. They are lucky psp is the only multimedia gaming console on the market otherwise i'd probably switch by now.

It better be online today (it is currently 1:53AM where I am), Sony have no excuses at all if the store isn't up by today.

Jc_Fiasco, I still think about not buying anything from them. I dunno. I will probably buy a few more, but thats more to support Final Fantasy games. Not to support them.

@Maverick1510 be lucky and grateful it's even coming back online? really? it's a service we expect when we invest in their product.. they should be lucky and grateful more people didn't kill their account after the first week of service being down.

@Maverick51510 easy for you to say becuase you don't own any of those games. Put yourself in someone's shoe and don't be so arrogant

Im not sure why people are complaining about "people already having the games" SO what if you do? Be lucky and grateful that the service is ACTUALLY coming back online. And you still can play online so don't have a fit. For me, I'll be enjoying Infanmous, and Wipeout HD+Pure. Stop complaining.

@Gnosis13 yeah, i think ur right, I think they are just gonna reboot the system and bring the store back online, just like any other update, u usually have to reboot ur computer in order to fully install the items, but with sony, doin that to over 2 million ps3's at once, you'd have to shut it down, lol...

Oh, console wars. You never fail to embarrass the rest of us. @Neo : I heard the same thing. I don't have a link for you, but I was told it would be last minute prep for bringing back the store. It could be BS, but it would make sense.

@Cloud-Zehro: Yes, I'm well aware of the effect of thermal stress and fatigue on metal components. It's not exactly that the metal gets "brittle," but I see what you're getting at. So, you're saying that RROD is due to metal components breaking in the console?

@P0T Actually, that makes a lot of sense. Personally I don't even know a single person who's gotten YLOD, and I know more than 10 people with a PS3 obviously. If the YLOD has a 10% rate, 1/10 of users would get it. So where are they? And where I am, Xbox 360 is three times as popular but I only know two people who've ever gotten RROD, one of them being me. But that was from a power outtage while my 360 was on and it still worked but the first time I turned it on after the power outtage, it had RROD. But apparently 1/5 of Xbox 360 users get RROD? Doubt it. 20% of profits for Microsoft doesn't sound so good, especially since Microsoft was selling Xbox 360's at a loss. Same for the PS3.

@Frosty192 That was a freaking web survey. Are you naive enough to think unscientific web surveys are legitimate? Internet polls are not reliable and that is where the 47% stat comes form, an INTERNET poll done by a gaming magazine. That survey was widely debunked and only trotted out by ideologue fanboys.
