Really? I was playing TLOU online a minute ago.

your wrong, im sitting in my living room watching my son play LBP2 with 2 other people. i got him to hit the PS button and i saw who was online, got him to delete a couple spam friend requests i noticed. its all fine.

Unless you mean ps4 only?

I am Torgo, I take care of the place while the master is away.

"Hes the clown that makes the dark side fun.. Torgo!"

Ha.. i won my bet, but i wasnt around to gloat because im on a better forum!  See ya guys on Viz

They're trying to force people to spend every minute with family and friends.

Hmmm how can they play Fifa online then?
They are from the US - I play Fifa right now online in EU...No problem here.
All other people on twitch are probably faking it too.



I tried to enter PS Store about 10 min ago and it said that it was undergoing maintenance.

It must be only certain people. I tried going on 2 hours ago and couldn't do anything. Now I can.

A lot of people still can't.



Welcome to PSN. Ugh. I love Sony's IP but their online service is NOT XBL. I bought a PS4 with the expectation that it's service would be up to XBL's but, it's not. In the 10 years I've had XBL, I can't remember one single time it was down for "maintenance". Not at 1pm, 1am...3am...never. It's always just...worked.

Back when PSN was free, it was acceptable, but if we have to pay for it, that's now out the window.

PS Store is down, but the actual PSN is still on for me.
