Is The PSN Down In Australia?

We've been hearing widespread reports that the PlayStation Network is currently down in numerous regions, including Australia.

Currently we're having difficulties signing into the Network, and it appears that we are not alone.

Apparently Sony are aware of the issue and are currently working on a fix.

"We’re aware certain functions of PlayStation Network are down," claimed a post on the US PlayStation Blog. "We will report back here as soon as we can with more information.

"Thank you for your patience."

We currently have no idea when a fix will be coming, but we don't expect the service to be down for long.

        What is wrong with you!, the P.S.Nsn is down it will probably will be down till Friday. Also, how did a P.S.N network problem transform into a system problem? honestly tell me what in your mind told you that or who told you that lie?(no-offense)-_-"

          Yes i can help you all, A fellow hacker named Geohot has Jailbroken the Ps3 system to be able to use and upload software on the Ps3, He was also the first person and the only person to jail break an Iphone, Now a few months ago i bileave it was, Sony took him to court and tried to sue him, And a group of Hackers named anonymous didn't like what they tried and are still trying to do to Geohot, So they DDoS'd Sony Playstation Network and took them down, You can find more information about Anonymous on Youtube, I hope this helped, And also Sony is exploiting there players, They are getting all our messages to friends, Ip addresses they are abusing there players, So for your own safety i suggest Xbox, Thank you (:

            McCloud, not everyone has the same computer compatency as yourself!
            How can you even say (no-offence) to a comment like that, i had the same issues and reacted the same way.
            Maybe in my next life i will come back as an IT nerd..
            God save our souls if that happens

            I guess Anonymous never heard of the saying:
            "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should"

            Geohot went to court for a very good reason but I guess Anonymous couldn't "hack it" lolol

            Anonymous only did this to free one of their own, a fellow hacker aka criminal and at the same time screwed the Global base of online PS3 users.

            Thats all I will say, as I fear my Computer will be hacked because I displayed freedom of speech/type lol

              What annonymous stands for is if you buy a ps3 its yours and you have the right to do what you want to it
              dont u agree
              ps: it aint annoymous this time

                So your trying to tell me regurgitating what you have been told is free thinking?

                really....just really.....

          Yer buddy, nothing u can really do. Just wait till the psn team fix it. Don't worry where all in this same problem together :)

            Is it me or do these hackers seem like they are crying over spilled milk?

          Hahahahahha (like!!!)

        Whoa there. Sounds like somebody's getting a little carried away. Chill mate, it will be back. Just have to wait a while. No need to tear your hair out and start rocking back and forth in the corner of your room.

          hahaha lol thats hilarious reminded me of the simpsons episode bart *rocking back and forth* "clowns will eat me" XD

        Same here (but my cousins are in America :s :p)

      WTF If noobs stop hacking the network maybe we all be playing right now......

        We dont know it hackers yet
        why do we allways blame them
        maybe its just a software failure

      Yeah it's out for me. So no gran turismo tonight. Will play the xbox tho :)

      ahhhhh ffs i just want to play crysis 2 online, if it is xbox 360 noobs hacking they are not gamers and do not deserve the honour of calling themselfs gamers either, this is not how you treat your fellow brothren... They deserve to be crushed under a dickwagon.

      April 25th: The PlayStation Network was taken offline not too long after trading ended Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange. Sony (SNE:NYSE) may have decided to wait this long  for a long 3 day weekend to minimize the damages this situation may cause after a fairly decent week of trading.  It is not known what kind of damage the outage may have caused but we will see as Sony:SNE Stock will resume trading today at 30.50.

    Anonymous Hacks FTW

      Please don't praise or glorify those douchebags. Besides, I thought Anonymous dropped the whole DDoS on PSN.

        Please don't be a tool.

      I was getting an error when i opened playstation store saying that the attempt to add funds automatically has failed

        yea same thing happend to me after I tried to go into the PS store I got kicked and couldnt sign back in to psn.

    I've had problems for the last 2 days.

      Same here, past few days I have been getting an error and then after waiting about 15 mins or resetting my modem a fuckload of times it decides to log in. PSN has been fucking up major lately.

    I picked up another $150USD in PSN funds last night and haven't been able to redeem them yet ><

    Lets hope it's a quick fix.
    AFL 2011 just released + Easter long weekend.

      Hell yeah! AFL Live 2011 FTW this long weekend!

        Is Afl live 2011 or something like that multiplayer online because I was thinking of getting it

    f*ck annonymous if it is them, their vendetta is meant to be against sony, not the gamers.

      It aint them
      if it were theyed be bragging on their website
      and their targeting new zealand now i think

    I've been getting connection time out errors since the weekend. My PSP will connect to the internet ok, but PSN is flakey.

      same here, psp internet works fine, but ever since this weekend when I try to log onto psn it says the connection timed out

    Hmm I've had no trouble at all with it lately... maybe I've been lucky with the times I've been on.

    I havent played my PS3 for almost 6 months now. Today i decided that I had some free time and thought i would get a few games in...

    sigh.

    for the past week i have not been able to log in straight away i have had to re-do my network settings everytime i turn on my playstation...

      I had that issue when I set up a static IP in an attempt to Fix everything.Ha Ha -- Turns out that if another device was running before turning on PS3 then it would aquire that IP and the PS3 was kept in the dark. When setting up a static IP assign one at the end of your range so that new devices have no hope in trying to use the same one.

      Lmao, I thought i was the only one getting the connection error all week. I've had to redo my network settings over and over or restart my ps3 just to sign in once.

    Been happening since about 2pm EST (21/4/11). As per Dave Rogers, "Only PSN affected" can still use PS3 to browse net etc.

    I'm at work using the B-Spec Grinder Widget for Gran Turismo (which requires PSN to be connected) and it's all working fine....

    Yep PSN is down in Australia I hope they fix it soon it's f#$king Easter break 5 days of gaming might be stuffed I hope it's just a glitch cose if someone did this because of a grudge there going after the wrong group what have the core gamers got to do with it????

    Got home from work and Ps3 brought up an error and I have not been able to sign into PSN since. (New Zealand)

      yeah same here, an error keeps popping up when i try to sign into psn, QLD AUS

    Anyone else getting an error code when they try to sign in? I wanna play FIFAAAAAA! ARGFFHFH

      I was hoping to play FIFA too. PSN is down everywhere I guess, including here in Canada. Browsing on the PS3 works fine; it's just PSN that's down.

    Yep they're def down here on GC too.... and just as I got a mic to scream with.

    RAHHHHHH

      yeah on wednesday went out after 20 minutes of medal of honour to go get a turtle beach headset! come home i cant connect!

      its more annoying because i go back to school on wednesday......

    PSN Australia couldn't handle the influx of Steam-users redeeming their Portal codes. Either that or GLaDDOS managed to [COMMENT REDACTED]

    Oh that's great to know, I just spent the last hour trying to fix my ps3's internet!!!

    You know what? For the first time in longtime i can go "HA!!! I've got an Xbox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    That is all.
    I really do feel for you all ;(

    I was having trouble with it yesterday it kept erroring and logging me out.

    was looking forward to playing a few games, before going out owell

    You can sign in if you change your Primary DNS to 8.8.8.8 and Your secondary to 4.4.8.8.
    And then go to Playstation Store under the Videos section of XMB.

    Fu%# i just want to play COD!!! And head shot some mother fuc&!?$!!!!!!!

      Relax Burwa you can fix it yourself here's how:

      1) Close your eyes and crouch down in the middle of the room (this summons your inner strength)

      2) Start spinning while slowly standing up, gathering pace while you do

      3) Keeping your eyes closed, continue spinning for approximately 3 mins (don't worry, you can do it)

      4) Then scream 'PSN WORK NOW!', pick a random direction and run that way as fast as you can. Problem solved.

        lmfao thats awesome i wander has anyone tried this yat????

          its probably the british, [email protected]#k the british, or if its not them then its got to be the mexicans

        yet*

          *wonder

        I was playing Homefront since about 2pm in Victoria, Australia then all my friends went offline and i couldn't join any games , except lobbies who had a few people in it. So i decided to turn my Ps3 off incase it might have fixed my connection and then i couldn't log on any more . So angry

        That is frickin' hilarious!

        you nob

        Yep worked for me the second time too - but I had to do it with out clothes on.. Also - tried ChuggaChuggPANG's rocking back and forward in the corner first without any luck... But Azman - gotta hand it to you mate. This is gold.

      Thanks man this worked for me the second time.
      Just me mindful as it is region based. My PS3 is actually a US model, initially i followed the instructions spinning the wrong direction (southern hemisphere) but once I rebooted my mind and mana had restored I began the opposite direction.
      A tip for young players is that you need to double steps 2 to 4 if its connected via WIFI to Korean built wireless routers.
      Thanks heaps again for the sound advice Azman. Your should be a moderator for this site. Piss funny.

        Well I'm happy this helped out a few people but I mainly did it for Burwa; he seemed a little flustered and I'm sure he was willing to try anything.

        At the end of the day it's what I do - I create solutions to problems

    I just spent the last 2 hrs resetting my internet my ps3 and every other bloody thing under the sun and all for nothin. Sigh

      SAME HERE xD but i did 5 hours >.<

        DAMN, just got home to my PS3 to play some Black Ops and can't sign in!

        Stupid XBOX 360 fanboys hacking the servers!
