Expect PSN Back Up Online With Following Features

Expect PSN Back Up Online With Following Features

We know you like to be kept up-to-date with all the PlayStation Network news, so we thought we would inform you on what to expect when PSN is back up on line. The following features that Sony will bring to the service will hopefully allow you to forgive them a little? However, they had better hurry, as patience is now beginning to wear a little thin.

We had hoped for PSN to be back up by the weekend, but that has yet to happen. You may say that the day has not even started yet, but Japan is expected to go live first, and they are now well into Sunday. It is great that Sony is not only giving users free stuff, but also some nice new features to go with it.

Some of the new features are as follows: revamped XMB, Restoration of Online game-play, Access to account management, Music Unlimited, download un-expired Movie Rentals, PlayStation®Home, Chat Functionality and much more. We cannot see much new there, but Games Thirst must expect these features to receive some update to make them better than they were before. One thing we thought we would remind you of, you can expect double XP once PSN is back up.

What would you rather, PSN back up online now or wait for new features that are not needed?

  • Josiah P.

    rather it be online already

  • D coool

    Com'on, like seriously, make sure it's safe again and just get the site working. Like, no one really cares about crappy new features lol, can't they do that while the site is up anyway?

  • PSN Addict

  • adriane

  • ps3faithfully

    I'd rather it back up now with no new features
    i just wanna play online on bad company 2

  • http://Youtube.com Hmmm!!

    Lol, I'm glad this happened! I have nearly 20 exams coming up, PSN would only be a distraction to me, so really I'm not too bothered. I'm sure many people will be taking exams at this time of the year too, so make the most out of your time!

  • john

    would rather it came bk up sooner could give 2 hoots about double xp would rather play on it twice as long to earn that, how is it so hard to say sorry guys itll be wednesday before its online, at least id know to find somethin to do til then instead of checkin every morning

  • barry

  • LIAM

    rather it be online coz just wanna play onling n black ops and if u are bored on b ops you can do combat training if you go to local then click splitscreen and put it on tdm or ffa you can play againsts computers so if u are bored check that out or visit utube on either xjawz's chennel or zzirgrizz's channel or even opticnation and the best faze clan they do the craziest trickshots u will ever see

    OMG!!!!!! COME ON SONY HURRY UP OR ELSE PEOPLE WILL BETRADING PS3 IN FOR XBOX

  • Concerned Gamer

    honestly Im sick of PSN being down, but at this point they better do more than give me 30 worthless days of PS Plus to make up for this shit and losing giving all my info to a hacker. I want $100 or more credit on my PSN account to buy add ons or games. some top notch titles for free from PSN like resident evil, final fantasy whatever. Plus I think they should make PSN better before they bring it up. I mean comon XBOX live has espn ! They need to do something new to it just to compete and make it better than xbox live anyhow. some people might not care about espn but im a huge sports fan as well that does not pay for cable tv with all the hulu and everything else. But with playstation down…. yeah i did something i thought i would never do….bought a Xbox 360.

    So now you gotta do something dope to earn my trust back PSN. Something big.

  • Paul

    what is chat functionality?

  • whokilledmydog

    Mostly annoyed that with PSN down I can't transfer games I've already downloaded and paid for to my PSP to play them. So for the past 19 days or whatever I haven't been able to use stuff I've paid for because I can't log in. Lame.

  • TxG-George

    yeah cmon sony FFS put it back online

  • simon

    ive given up already… been following this shit since it went down, and now im just fucking even more pissed as it still hasnt come back online. they were in there last stages on friday and its fucking sunday now. what a laod of shit.

  • Simon oxford

    im getting really frustrated cuz sony are probably just giving up random dates, and maybe it wasnt anonymous maybe some retard from sony spilt coffee on the control panel while reading a playboy magazine, for god sake put it back up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

  • A Burlington

    PSN not online in the UK, could not give a hoot about double XP or silly liitle upgrades no one cares about!!! i just cant believe that a multi national giant like Sony are look looking like a bunch of amateur fools, seriousely this is embarrassing for them! pull your finger out Sony ans get your house in order as it should have been in the first place! no exscuses please just positive action for your loyal but frustrated members!!!! fed up with waiting now! (ropemaster)

  • Julie

    PSN back on in Japan :D

  • fendt818

    i dont mind the new features, i live on a farm and have loads of things to do, so i can get out and do something, the new features sound great, im glad that its been down……. but would like to get to level 14 prestige quickly lol…….

  • bob

    im so bored now just hurry up and get it running

  • Matt

    lol you're not getting $100 in your account. that would mean everyone would get $100. There are 77 MILLION users. they've lost enough money as it is without dishing out $7,700,000,000

  • Bloodshot

    bad company Vietnam baby!

  • pillow25

    Seriously, stop putting so much attention and thought in how to win us over or make us happy and stuff, just focus on getting us back online its all we really care about, it went from being wait a few days to a week and now what? giving us free services such as psn+ for a month doesnt make up for the fact that our privacy was put at risk and into the hands of these hackers, our credit and such would be ruined and all i would be able to say is "well at least i got free psn+ for a month" ok well anyways just get us back online soooooooon! thank you

  • fendt818

    give it a rest, XboX isnt as good as ps3. just give em a rest and calm down. itl do good for ya all to get off your arces !!!

  • kong

  • hussien

    you should give enough wallet cash for every one to buy the new map for call of duty black ops !!!! :@: @: @ after all its been more than 2 weeks

  • MrP

    Jim – "got heavy rain yesturday but not played yet,,,any good? " Ye, it's one of the best games I've played, even better with move!

  • qwerty

    not to hard to say that, but do you know how much damage they took? I'd rather they take their time than rush into it and get it wrong.

  • Superbad

    Sony has to take steps to make sure the PSN network is safe unless rush job woud = to more hackers taken it down more think about the network must take steps to make sure this wont happen again

  • Amar

    Come on Soe and SCEE, no more bull. We dont want other functionality, no chat no music. How dense are you Sony? WE WANT TO PLAY THE GAMES ONLINE, THATS IT. FORGET EVERYTHING ELSE AND BRING IT BACK ALREADY.

  • Nicole

    TBH I'm not bothered about online I have a life outside it then sitting down all day playing (I play online like 1 hour a day). I'm just glad my details are safe so I don't mind waiting.

  • hayd8

  • Chillda fukout

    It's a free service, shit like this happens, Find the front door, there are hundreds of things outside it to do instead.

  • jamieeeee

  • ishka

  • jimmiekiller

    no it isnt

  • jimmiekiller

    no it isnt

  • Leeboy

    Same here. This outage has gone on for to long allready. and sony and giving out much info as to when it will b back up. I know one thing though. If it had been Microsoft servers that go hacked they would have sorted it by now. i b very suprised if sony dont lose loads of customers because of this. it will b 4 weeks this coming wendsday that its been down. thought sony were the best when it comes to stuff like this. again getting really pissed off with it now. ive completed all my games twice over since this outage began. now aint got nothing to play. So come on SONY this is just taking the piss now…..

  • MeWantPsnNow

    PSN Hurry Up FFS I Mean Cmon It Been 3 Weeks

  • meee

    Would be nice if you gave everyone a rough date its back on im tired of checking each day?!

  • rude

    Why would they put it on in Japan first??? The amount of gamers they have is tiny in comparison with europe and u.s!! You are talkin crap my friend!!

  • sean

    y does everyone keep lying… :(
    add me wyzer (well when its bak)

  • Jordan

    Word is one of Sony's rewards for our waiting time is that we will get a party chat similar to what xbox offers, this is definitely worth the wait

  • julzie

    then get al ife

  • Shark

    the most wise thing to do in these kinda situations is at least tell the customers what is really going on! we all realized that PSN was gonna be back up during the past week, but that never happened, i think this has turned from a hack issue to a trust issue, SONY gave us the hope that it would be back up, and we all got our hopes up, and they let all of us down, not only for the hackers stealing our info which we trusted SONY with, but also for lying to us! At least be honest with your customer SONY, they deserve a lil honesty here, we have been your loyal customers for almost 5 years. If they said from day 1 that it would be down for a full month, it's ok with me, i woulda wait without saying a single word till the month is over! what SONY doing right now is a shame stamped on it's forehead, and it wont be gone easily. I thought i would never prefer XBOX 360 on PS3, but now after all this, i dont think imma think of PS3 again as the enternainment console for me EVER! ( Sorry for the bad eglish thu!)

  • Mickey D

    black ops is shit!!! jump out of CoDs ass and play a real game like BFBC2 or MoH !!!

  • john

    nope

  • JoeC

    i hear psn is up in 2 other countrys b.s. b.s. b.s. fire the damn thing up and work on it while its running jeeze

  • sinsationalbulk

    all i want is for them to get back up. Add features later cause right now I miss my MVC3 and COD. Took mad time away from the work and the day i took leave it's been down forever. Sony stop pulling dates out the air and give us online already. If you gonna give features they better be some improvements like chatting without having to leave the game fo a friend.

  • sean

    you might as well carry on adding things into it because we have already had to wait 19 days but if we dont get psn back up by tuesday thats just a let down

  • Andy

    What you get ESPN on Xbox? I'm switching to Xbox 360 and playing some games today. Goodbye Sony

  • ash

    no 1 want ur new shitty features sony. All we want is to play online. These idiot are getting our hope up every fukin day by saying its coming back soon. Well am dying to play black ops. Also these ps3 user are fukin retards all they want is free stuff from sony its cos they all bunch of scrubbers. Brrrrrrrrr

  • the devil

    I wish sony would stop f*cking telling people a date that it'll be back up by. They keep getting everyones hopes up for nothing and this bullsh*t is getting a bit old now. You'd think with a multi billion dollar company they'd be able to sort there sh*t out by now. I just screwed my gf and all I wanna do now is kill some people on RDR. F*CK YOU SONY! hope your losing a sh*t load of money.

  • JoeC

    Hey its up and running guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sike but i got your blood pumpin didnt i

  • lihgsipar

    Sony should make an emergency-hotline for gaming addicts :)

  • Johnbonham321

    Bring it back up now i mean i wud wait if i got a free game or a couple of map packs of my choice but its been 3 weeks and all we get is a couple of lousy add ons. is there gonna be any compansation for PSN gamers?

    Comment guys

    :p

  • phil

    realistically no one really cares about any of the free stuff, psn has been offline for nearly 3 weeks now just get it back on line ASAP!!!

  • Draven

    I dont mind the new features its really good of sony to give us anything at all……keep in mind we dont pay to play online like some "other" consoles …so i say give them a break they working their asses off for us to play free..so back off

  • Steve

    The only people who even care about new features are people who don’t even play their PS3′s. When are Sony going to give an accurate date of when PSN will be back up, it feels like they can’t wait to give us another spoonful of crap. “PSN will be up in 1-2 days.” 3 Days later, “PSN will be up in 1-2 days.” 3 Days later, “PSN will be up in a week.” Week later, “PSN will be up in the weekend” it’s sunday and we’re still waiting. Sony’s products are just starting to turn into expensive paperweights.

  • bob

    hurry up and come back on!

  • Snake

    mgs4 has one of the deepest single player modes. Good game.

  • Mike

    Why was there no back-up server to run on incase of this shit? Why was all of our information sitting in a decrepit server Sony probably bought at an international yardsale some years back?And why does sony continue to smile and talk about plans for the return but not deliver? Giving us all shit eating grins, while we seemingly wait for a date that sony can't give. Eight years ago, this would have been something funny to read about in a mag, but today, online is paramount to keeping your gaming community alive. Sony, you are beginning to look like those Sega fools you destroyed so skillfully at the turn of the century……. please don't make me move on to x-box. You're making this harder on us all than it has to be……. If we start paying you for the service will you turn it back on? Christ.

  • pauliec

    they say its back on in japan ….??????????

  • iiMaGiiCzZ

    add me when it comes online iiMaGiiCzZ is my psn. i need so play with good people!!!!! :D

  • guest

    Sure, restore it right this second and risk compromising your personal identity. If you get the PSN back up immediately instead of waiting for these new features, you will need to download a new firmware update for every single new feature added after the fact.

  • Coby

    I'm Having fun playing xbox live :)

  • josh

    funny guy looooool that made me laugh quite a bit.. but that was some bad spelling

  • Jim

    I've gotta say it certainly is taking a long time now, not really arsed about the new features and freebies, as i'm sure they will be the things we don't need anyway. As for double xp? Well thats gonna go down well with those who have hardcored there online gaming to get to the highest possible xp (30 in Farcry 2) then i myself swoop in without earning that, To be honest, i'd rather earn it by earning it. Just get it running guys!!!

  • jimmy

    psn online now

  • nathan

    cool man

  • ps3 hurry up

    american phrase

  • mickey

    yea i also got a 360 now

  • adrian hook

    put it back up when they have solved all the issues, and quit gripping at the company. God you'd only have something more to grip about should they put psn back up early and it goes again.

  • sean

    so if your sick of psn being down which IS FREE what you gonna be like when xbox live goes down AGAIN which you have to pay for

  • Sonz

  • nathys12345

    id rather it come back sooner too, but the thing is that they need to make it safer, there ia a problem and they need to fix it. end of story. im getting impatient too. but they do need to redo the whole system so i say cut them some slack cause this is a huge thing and theyre compensating with free stuff later. yeah its not much. but would u rather have them put it up and have it go down again quick, or wait and have it up safe from attack??

  • psn is gay

  • il_1NF3CT3D_li

    sony could at least put up a server up for the time that the real 1 is offline but only you have to make a new account and u cant buy any thing because its a back up kind of server were they put it up when the real 1 is offline or unavilbale

  • mrbolts21

    the reason y u losers want psn back online is because u fukin ppl dnt hav friends, da only friends u guys really hav is psn online friends please ppl get a life and get sum friends( PSN FRIENDS DNT COUNT!)

  • lee

    It will be back up when it's ready, if they put it up before it's tested out fully and it went down again you would be moaning again.
    Makes me wonder what you guys did before you had a ps3, get a life please…

  • johnno

    I hope Japan go back online first they deserve it.

  • Bob

    How much longer will it take?

  • Paul

    Is that chat functionality

  • EMP_Mighty Mouse

    Instead of wasting your time here trying to flame a company that will never even read what you've just written. You should invest in the money saved from not buying games, and the time gained from the outage, into more English courses.

  • Scotty

    Both games are class heavy rain is like a movie the story is great

  • mark

    just checked…its not up in Kansas City…

  • Playstation sever

    Psn is very sorry for the delay. online is now in japan and they are working their way so canada and usa have online once again.

  • Playstation sever

    Psn is working in japan right now.But we are sorry for the delay.we are working hard to finish the last testing of the new security system. When psn come back on there will be FREE things and FREE credits. Wait until the new update come's on.

  • iLoad and iShoot

    Xbox should take this chance and work with it. Like making commericals, have four friends playing games together. Have three playing xbox and the other playing ps3. All three guys on xbox look at the guy on ps3 with the “undergoing maintenance” thing on his screen, turn back smile and then start playing xbox live.

  • PSN: JOELHERGON

    i really do hope so

  • iLoad and iShoot

    Stop lying..you know you don’t get any play

  • Cameron

    by the sound of it, it seems like the party chat from Xbox, that would be sick

  • Sean

  • WHO YOU GONNA CALL

    We all want to play online….YES. They should give a rough date….YES, but we need to expect they cant be sure themselves. Dying to play blackops…..NO, rather play GHOSTBUSTERS online. Least Sony is offering something…more than xbox will do

  • der der der der der

    well said mate, im not to botherd by any of this, has done me a bit of a favour as i was falling into a bad bad rutine of up all night awake all day on MW2.. now got some sleep and spent some good time with family etc. u should all try it and not let a games console rule ur lives. true or not true?? the only thing any of u shud have a prob with is that sum spotty little crackhead hacked sony and may have got ur bank details, not worrying about when you gonna get ur nxt blackops fix online. how true is that!!! just be p[atient guys! and to all u idiots that sold your PS3 and got a ****box then they are welcome to you. go back to ur SD gamers and consoles that sound like there gonna take off, the size of them im suprised they fit thru the front door, fools.

  • Sparkyy

    Dont think it matter about the account :P Its the region :)

  • sparkymurt

    Sony you're just like any greedy company relaxed on maintainace and security while you rake in the money. You left the lock of the door of your house and are now apologising for why your house has been robbed. For gods sake what did think was going to happen. Sloppy and embarrasing now sort it out..

  • lee

    wat country r u in

  • Joshua'

    I Know what you're fendt, i used to always play it alot of the time, I used to get headaches and everything. But now. Off the PS3. I live life more. I don't really crave it to be back online.

  • 360NoScoPe

    This is bullshit already. I need PSN back up online so i can get paid to make videos for machinama and evil controllers like c'mon already. If a sponsor drops me PSN i will literally never play PS3 again in my fucking life. i can't stand this BS already put the servers back online.For all u ppl out there too just becuz PSN will give free stuff oput u go and kiss their fucking ass's. PSN u got two days for PSN to b back up online before i literally freak.

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.murty Andrew Murty

    Sony you're just like any greedy company slack on maintainance and security but carry on raking in the money. if you leave your house door open don't be surprised when you get robbed. what did you expect to happen. we are bored with all the apologies and lame offerings just sort this mess out now.

  • ICONIC

  • PSNplayer

    comments^ wait alittle more i mean im mad it said its ganna come up this week that didnt happen (yet) and xbox sucks so they can go pay for online im not haa so screw them $7 bucks for a month heeeell no

  • The Don

    What the hell? Sure it's bad that online is down but ur all over reacting. The bad bot is that little fuckers got their hands on our personal details and all you worry about is being able to do stuff like buy map packs for COD? What the fuck did you all do before online existed?

  • Ps3 sucks

    X-BOX 360. Ps3 sucks dick. everybody buy X-box 360. Then psn will give a ton of shit out for free

  • majicjhonson

    sme here im sick at bad company 2 but now when psn cums back online my skills would have gon crap coz of dese douchebags taking te piss

  • AlexTheAngryPSNUser

    I don’t care much for all the add ons. I rather have it now without anything than to have it two week later with random stupid add ons.

  • AndrewTheAngryIndianClerk

    Dude fuck 2012. The worlds ending now. I waited several weeks for freaking PSN. It’s my life. And now some japs are getting it before us? Shit, they be high as hell. I choked my children to death after hearing about this outrage. I won’t buy an xbox, no matter how tempting, because i’m a frugal, indian asshole. And Sony isn’t helping. I hope for a 69$ credit supply after this outrage. Assholes.

  • 3Weeks

    I'd rather PSN be back now. I don't want any add ons or free stuff or anything at all. Just for PSN to be back up! Oh, and no one is buying a crapBOX, so STFU!

  • hiya123

    i wanna play psn!!

  • black mamba 24

    Do we get the map packs for free or do we have to pay?

  • giggitygoo123

    just tell me when its up im goin to sleep XBOX still sucks

  • Craig

  • giganto

  • terra diablo

  • seann

    is there an estimate for when psn is online for canada?

  • Raiyen22

    What scotland do you know in the usa

  • Liam

    i'd rather wait for the new stuff so it can be better and be worth it but i think that they're taking to long on getting it up and running !

  • wiick3d

    i want online now forget the new stuff that we dont need just fix what need to be fix plz puy us back online then in a update add stuff like that one guy said espn, or facebook or something

  • jack

    oh come on stop delayed it and put it on its monday in japan already we just want are psn to change are passwords before something else goes and this will be sony fault

  • Hackerssuk

    Xbox should be all over this, offer deep discount on Xbox bundles for gamers jumping ship on Sony. Hell they would make a killing.

  • Mac

    Seriously. I understand there's been a whole problem and shit like that, and your blaming it on hackers, but I honestly think you guys fucked something up and now you don't want to seem stupid and your worrying everyone. You could have honestly just said you fucked up, lying or not, so people don't shit the selves and hate you guys because now they think/know they lost there credit card information. Congrats Sony, on another screw up.

  • Liam

    THANK YOU!!!!

  • Alex

    Liar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Are you lying?
    Please tell the truth……….Please :(

  • Alex

    How do you know? are you lying? Don't lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ps3freak

    FFS I have had it with this, i have been trying to sign in now for 3 weeks a stil havnt left my couch!!! the pain is unbearable cos all i know is how to play COD. I have no friends except for online, i have no life except for online, i look pethetic so i cant go get me a r*** and quite frankly i cant get it up unless im pawning some noob nub (wateva!!) on COD so SONY PLEASE BRING MY LIFE BACK! I will not wait another day!, goodbye… PS i also demand $1000000 of loss of life compensation!

  • vfvdscs

    Your joking right…? Scotland is in Europe moron.. seriously hope your not a Canadian.. if your American.. your stupidity is expected.

  • mufc4life

    i miss battlefield 1943 and gran turismo 5 :( please psn..we dont want store, movies or anything..just want online!!

  • vergence

    Yea, everyone needs to chill out and let sony do what they need to do. Half of us including me have no idea what it takes to run a network and keep it safe. You want some black ops practice? play a local match with computer controlled AI on veteren settings and youll get that ass handed to you.. lol trust me, but youll be more than ready for online noobs when network is restored… What does everyone think we did before online console gaming? Played games still. So shut your whiney ass mouths and have some paitence for fucks sake.

  • http://www.facebook.com/PunkJimbo Jimbo Parker

    ye tis pretty lame, hopefully soon

  • rangers till we die

    stil no word when psn will be bk online then

  • tadster00

    Who gives a crap about the new features. Nobody was complaining about features before the PSN went down. We just want it back up. Just clean it, fix it, and turn it back on as soon as possible. Update us as you install new features. Jeeze…

  • XxCOB_BoSsxX-

    So, its Monday 1:08pm, is it back up like they said it would be

  • KillaC

    This is such BS first it's gonna be a couple days, then a couple weeks, and now it's looking like a couple months. I've played sony since the first playstation came out and defended playstation tooth and nail against those lame xboxers who think that their system is better and all Sony is doing right now is proving them right!!!!

  • casey

    heavy rain rocks u lucky i got stupid homefront not that it's a bad game it rocks ecept the graphics are out dated by 3 years but when the price goes down to about atleast 40 dollars every1 should get it but the demo of heavy rain that i played got me to love it you will like it jim

  • Ben

    it makes me laugh how Sony tries to patch over everyone's frustrations by giving us crap every time something crappy happens. We've been asking for X-game chat and other USEFUL features for ages. So they give us crappy video/photo/music related updates, that barely anyone uses (realistically, WHO buys a games console, especially one so expensive, to play MUSIC?). They need to sort themselves out quickly, or they're likely to lose a large proportion of their users in a very short amount of time, and I can't say they don't deserve it.

    However, I love my PS3, so I'll be sticking with it. Nonetheless, not a fan of Sony right now.

  • Swanny

    i would just wait and get the extra features because that is sony rewarding us for our patience

  • ishka

    then call sony and tell them u don't want their new features

  • Andrew Robertson

    thay better have cross game chat oh yeh by the way i HAVE AMAZING NEWS HALO IS COMEING TO PS3 AAAAAAAAA OMG

  • soopervillain

    its WANT not wont… u should be focusing on school too

  • soopervillain

    im not positive because im not retarded enough to do so, but i dont believe gamestop or anywhere else will trade a ps3 thats currently down 100$ atleast at gamestop right now for a xbox360, either way enjoy paying 50$-60$ a year 2 play ur games online (if ur xbox360 lasts that long) once ur xbox360 breaks down u'll have 2 send it back in 4 repair which will take a lot longer than this psn down time, either way please dont go crying about how ur xbox360 broke & u miss ur ps3

  • soopervillain

    ive had a 360 b4, horrible online experience & their servers reall suck…

  • soopervillain

    really*

  • wonkydonky09

    This is getting beyond a joke now, sony pull your finger out!

    I have held off buying an xbox, but with no date set for the psn to return an xbox maybee on my shopping list shortly.

    Show us some respect and give us some realistic dates of return

    I am not happy that my ps3 has now devalued as there are so many for sale at the moment and the consumers have been put off an insecure brand. I expect sony to compensate correctly and make relevent improvments othererwise it will be xbox regardless.

  • playstation sever

    ATTENTION PS3 USERS…PLAYSTATION NETWORK WILL BE BACK ON IN A DAY OR TWO…..KEEP ON WAITING

  • Shiki

    Seriouly!?!Just get the dang site up already!I finally have a code that I couldn't wait to redeem until all of this happen.Worry about new features later.People are wanting PSN up now…I don't play online games but I'm wanting to get this costume for character.I at least want it back up before it expires.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Scott-Yowell/628014354 Scott Yowell

    Just get psn back up again. I would rather play my games again.(the way I used to) rather than have all this new fancy stuff. I could care less about. I just want to play online again. SO COME ON SONY GET PSN BACK UP NOW!!!!!!
