Sony VP on PlayStation Network Outage, PSN Status Updates

Sony VP on PlayStation Network Outage, PSN Status Updates 750°
9w ago - Sony Consumer Experience VP Catherine Jensen shared details today on the PlayStation Network outage alongside PSN status updates below.

To quote: The video game industry has been experiencing high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay.

Multiple networks, including PSN, have been affected over the last 48 hours. PSN engineers are working hard to restore full network access and online gameplay as quickly as possible.

From time to time there may be disruptions in service due to surges in traffic, but our engineers will be working to restore service as quickly as possible.

If you received a PlayStation console over the holidays and have been unable to log onto the network, know that this problem is temporary and is not caused by your game console.

We'll continue to keep you posted on Twitter at @AskPlayStation and we'll update this post once the problems subside.

Thanks again for your patience.

Update: PlayStation Network is back online (although some regions still are seeing 'Intermittent Connectivity' at this time).

As you probably know, PlayStation Network and some other gaming services were attacked over the holidays with artificially...

Status Update on PS3 4.0 Homebrew Enabler (HEN) by KaKaRoTo 1350°
163w ago - Today PlayStation 3 hacker KaKaRoToKS has posted a status update on the PS3 4.0 Homebrew Enabler (HEN), which comes just six weeks since the previous confirmation that it indeed works on Sony's latest Firmware version.

To quote: Here’s a “quick” status update on the 4.00 HEN (Homebrew ENabler) for PS3.

Following my clarifications from almost 2 months ago here, there has been a lot of progress. We have not been slacking off, we’re a group of about 10 developers working together for the last 2 months, for sometimes 15 hours everyday in order to bring back homebrew support to the latest version of the PS3.

There are three major parts to the HEN, first, getting the packages to install on the PS3, that part is done, completed, tested, debugged, etc.. the second part is to get the apps to run, that one still has major issues... the last part is something I will not discuss for now (it’s a surprise) but it’s about 60% to 70% done (and it has nothing to do with peek&poke and has nothing to do with backup managers or anything...

New PlayStation Home PDA System and Status Updates Incoming

New PlayStation Home PDA System and Status Updates Incoming 50°
225w ago - A few days back we reported on the PlayStation Home Client Update version 1.4 patch notes, which arrives on November 11, and today PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above) has made available some leaked PlayStation Home screenshots that indicate a new PDA System, Status Updates and pets for Sony's virtual world are incoming.

While there is no confirmation yet if these changes will be included in the 1.4 update or shortly thereafter, based on the pictures they are definitely coming soon.

To quote: "Locust_Star confirmed that the Home wardrobe system would be experiencing a significant overhaul, and it appears that part of that overhaul will mean simpler, faster interface options through the PDA, much like the new start-up screen that users are used to.

Next we notice that users will now have the ability to select a status for their avatar, making it easier to let others know that you don't want to be bothered, or that you want to get a game going; this may even grant users the ability to change facial expressions, which many have been asking...
