    Hooo boy we all remember last Christmas and the Lizard Squad attack that took PSN and XBox Live down for several days? Well while nothing is confirmed it seems PSN has been down now for around 12 or so hours, with a generic 'undergoing maintenance' message or error code appearing when you try to log in. The PSN status page shows all services as red, twitter and social media is getting barraged by angry PS4 owners and Sony being Sony are saying nothing other than they are working on it.

    Lol can't believe we have to pay for this service.

    LizardSquad claimed to have done it. Nothing can stop a massive DDoS attack, so it is pointless moaning than Sony isn't doing enough to stop it.

    Finished it a while ago when it first appeared on PSN. Still a great and funny game.

    Well PSN is back online for the U.S people. Makes me wonder if there is anything that Sony can do about this.

    To be fair though, Sony do seem to have a lot more online services issues than Microsoft do and I can say that with confidence because I own both the PS4 and Xbox One.

    I have had very few issues with Xbox Live (I do not use my consoles on Christmas Day either) but have experienced numerous issues with PSN. Also, PSN is always undergoing some kind of maintenance every month whereas I don't recall ever seeing this on Xbox Live since I've had my Xbox One but when I had my Xbox 360, Microsoft would always message its users to inform them of planned maintenance. That is something Sony have never ever done to my knowledge and, in fact, communication on the whole is quite poor with them in my opinion. Even when the service is working, downloads are often ridiculously slow, with game patches often taking hours to download if they are a few GBs in size.

    Both services cost the same but if it wasn't for the fact that I have access to free games each month then I would not pay for PSN as at as I do not play games online at all.

    Its a strange thing. Ive connected my ps4 to my second ethernet port on my pc and shared internet on my first ethernet port. (so the ps4 has internet access if my pc is on).
    Im gettting full download speeds now. Ive downloaded over 200GB on Sunday (when PSN worked again) since i decided to wipe everything just to see how that would work.

    It might be just a bit (leaps and bounds) cheaper to use a switch to share a ethernet connection.

    But yeah, ps4 wifi isn't amazing, but with ethernet it's quite high, not full 100mb internet high but far above the ps3 on ethernet.

    Plus sleep mode download it great, using console downtime to download updates, similar to how windows 10 is turning on my laptop overnight to install updates.

    You would expect Microsoft to have outstanding server security though. Given that they specialize in software. Sony is more of the hardware manufacturer.

    The reason you don't is because Sony pays money to the developers to compensate for it being free on PSN. This helps out the smaller studios.

    A £5.00 code would have been more appropriate.

    To be honest, i only brought mine because i heard ace combat 7 will be exclusive to the console;and needless to say i'm a die hard fan of the series.
    But I really don't want to let the console just sit in my room's corner. Are there any good exclusives on ps4 that i can play on?
