Game On! – PSN (almost) Back Up

by Doug on May 14, 2011

Earlier today, Sony released a mandatory system update (v3.61) for the PS3 to prepare for the (wait for it) restoration of the PlayStation Network. The update will (shocker) prompt you to change your PSN password. More recently, Kazuo Hirai took to the PlayStation Blog, by video, to inform everyone that they are currently rolling out a “phased restoration” of the PSN starting tonight. This is said to include online play, Netflix, Hulu, and some other aspects of the network. They have a map of the US to show when and where the PSN has been restored, lighting up the appropriate states. They’re advising that if you see that your state has been illuminated on the map but that you still do not have service, to please be patient as it may take some time to fully activate. As of now, it appears you can download the update but you’re still left to sit and wait for the real show to begin I see green states!!!!!.

Updated as of 2:30 AM Central

All Systems Go!!

So hold tight, folks. It looks like this nightmare is finally coming to an end. And feel free to check out Hirai’s video update. It conveniently ends right before Batman comes crashing through the window.

“You can simply look at the events of the past few weeks to see that this is a major crisis with the potential to sping completely out of control very fast.”Inmdeed. Which makes it more important that any plan come with the complete buy-in of a majority of Rs and Ds in both houses.

In researching cricket trends and behavior (like any good writer) I learned that they also are omnivorous, like trash, eat everything from wallpaper, to clothes, to leather jackets, leaving tiny holes along the way.Our spider-free home has been great, but maybe not worth the consequences. I stepped on one in the kitchen today with no regrets. Love is fickle that way…Really liked your Christmas post… hugs to you, : )
