Minecraft launch causes PSN errors, Sony responds

psn featured

PSN is not functioning properly right now and according to Sony it has to do with the Minecraft launch. As you all know, it’s an extremely popular game that has sold millions on numerous platforms.

We reported earlier that people have been getting various errors and some were even seeing 0 games in their PS4 library. The multiplayer is also not functioning although you can see your friends list.

The PS4 is unstable and that’s entirely due to PSN, which is sort of scary if you think about it.

Sony has responded to these errors and this is what they tweeted.

I guess it would take some time for them to fix all these problems. But Destiny’s launch on September 9th doesn’t look so good for PSN, does it? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

    for all the people that lose thousands of hours on this game:
    if you want something that steals your time, and will help you reach 65 years old much faster, as apparently, your lives are that boring, why don’t …
    … you start counting your hair? stats say a human head has around 120’000. can you please verify it ?

    … or buy 1kg/lbs of sugar, and try counting how many tiny grains there are

    … or start google maps, and street view, and start visiting ALL the streets of new york, with your arrow keys

    … or grab a Bible, and start counting how many times your find the word “JESUS”

    DAMN, people, there must be something you could do, to occupy your time, without having to buy a game and align virtual blocks.

      Lmao you came here just to be a massive cunt and you succeeded. You’re so superior compared to everyone else.

    • Guestington

      Creating things in minecraft activates portions of the brain that are not activated during a rote task such as counting identical items into the thousands. Since our existence is defined by our brains, they are inherently different and incomparable.

      If you define an action’s worth by movement of the physical body, keep in mind that is simply a cellular representation of something that is taking place in the mind.

        get a job as a mason and build homes with bricks, you even get real money in return and you get smarter because you align bricks

    • Escopablobar

      I don’t know if I agree with what you’ve said but your comment is one of the best I’ve read in a long time. Cheers.

    • bpaq87

      just to be devels advocate here i guess, but what makes anything you do more meaningful? How do you define what is a good use of time. What makes you think there is any value to anything you do? Why do some people play this stupid game? They enjoy it.

  • zblacktt

    God help us come Sept 9th….. The PSN is going to blow the hell up with the massive millions logging on at once. RIP PSN…… Destiny.

  • Spencer

    People do love blowing things out of proportion don’t they? PSN will be fine on Tuesday.

    • ineedgames

      If this is going to be a common occurrence with PSN and they are now paying for it, people have the right to complain.

      • Da GeeZ

        Yep, the PSN is fair game now… bring on Tuesday…this is going to be so much fun :)

        • ineedgames

          lol I’ll probably just not get the game Day one not just because the Servers will be down but just to look at all of the butthurt comments.

          Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD. All you have areworthless lies and fanboy hatred that accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them.

          PSN is already hugely improved from PS3 and Sony is investing more into it.

    PSN should have remained free for PS4, too many problems lately with PSN and now problems because of a shitty pixel game?

    LMFAO SONY YOU SUCK

    Greed will be your fall.

    • TraceSkipper

      sony is the least greediest of all the companies … right now microsoft has 30 billion tuck away in off shore accounts to avoid american taxes … so the point here is you’re an idiot b/c you lack knowledge. Jan Compaf you’re ignorance will be your fall.

      • Jan Compaf

        and how do you got that info?
        from yo ass?
        and sony making you pay if you want to play online for PS4 is not greed?
        i see no improvements for psn only failures lately, if you cant see that then you are a stupid blind fanboi just STFU kid and go back to xbox

        • TraceSkipper

        Calm down you gonna have a blind fanboi heart attack.
        What worthless lies?
        Why would i lie about something i experienced?
        Im most likely a bigger lvl on PSN than you are, its just that im not blind or choose to look the other way like you are doing so you are the fanboi here and a blind one.
        You are hating people that hate plastic so i dont know why you accuse me of something when you are even worse.
        Just because Sony said it doesnt mean you have to belive it, were you living under a rock all this time?
        Dont you know Sony?
        They throw a lie here and there more often than the others.

        lmao ….ok guy

  • Guest

    lmao all these salty Xbots and their bitch tears. Most of Destiny will be bought at retail or will be pre-loaded. The real question is if Activision’s servers will be ready or not. They should be OK considering their history with COD. No one wants a repeat of the GTA Online debacle which affected both services. Remember that, bots? But we’ll see.
