Another PS4 launch. Another PSN outage. Unacceptable.

So I wake up this morning ready to play KZ multiplayer. I finally have a long weekend to enjoy my new consoles but PSN is down. I cant play multiplayer. People cant redeem their PS+ codes. Yet we are all still PAYING for this online service.

Shit like this was acceptable when PSN was free. It's no longer free. XBL did not have any issues on launch day and they launched in 13 countries at once. I was unable to play any games online the day PS4 launched in NA. You would've thought that Sony would've learned from their awful PS4 launch in NA but nope. When will Sony figure this shit out?

I dont even know if I should ask for a refund because it will probably come out to be like 30 cents a day. Maybe it's not that big of a deal. All I know is that I cannot play any multiplayer games on a holiday weekend.

**** YOU SONY.

Ouch. That stinks. I thought they were disabling ancillary features to alleviate this kind of issue, or was I mistaken?

Either way, that is a bite in the ass. Sorry man.

I just read on the Escapist that Killzone has been patched. Do you think maybe it's just that game, or are you certain it's all of PSN?

EDIT: Nevermind, I see that this is a PSN wide issue that is affecting everyone. Sorry.

I couldn't redeem the code for the year of PS+ that I bought this morning. Is something up with that?

Wait a day for PSN to fix itself, it should work tomorrow.

Yes Solid this is total BS.

I am glad I was not near my PS3 to experience that. I would have been disappointed more than how I am by reading about it. I am glad PSN is working now and has been since I started using my PS3 tonight. I used a PlayStation Store money card, downloaded Soul Calibur II HD, and am now playing it.

And now Sony has suspended the "redeem voucher" functionality.

*sigh*

So much for spending my Saturday morning playing Lego Marvel Super Heroes (digital) that I just bought for $40 from Amazon.

It really is always something with Sony.

I tried out the trial version of SC II HD on 360 and it was fun while it lasted. I still prefer the original Soul Calibur though.

In any case, sorry @S0lidSnake. Sucks that things like that happen bro. BTW, never got your friend request from you. :P

Launch was flawless for me, everything downloaded superfast, must have missed the PSN issue when playing single player. Love my PS4, controller is great, Killzone is good fun and I love Resogun.

People should probably learn to accept outages of popular online services on launch days given that it happens with 100% accuracy.

It could be better. The menus are basic and the graphics are 720p.

Okay, I am done derailing the thread.
