Update 1: Sony’s just said that it turned off PSN for 30 minutes because of server overload:
“Weâ€™re currently experiencing an extremely heavy load of password resets, and so we recently had to turn off services for approximately 30 minutes to clear the queue,” wrote Patrick Seybold on the US PS Blog.
“As such, a large number of people are attempting to change their passwords at the same time, itâ€™s taking longer than expected for all those emails to clear all of the ISPs.
If youâ€™ve requested your password reset, please give it a bit of time to reach your email. Thanks for your patience as we work to get everyone back online.”
I know a lot of you are sending in reports from all over the Caribbean concerning this, so now you know what’s really going on. Sit tight.
Original Story: PSN has been gradually coming along, with portions of the U.S. and Europe being turned on as Sony promised a phased return, with full service coming at the end of May worldwide. Some people who haven’t received service would love to know the status for their location, and while in the U.S. things have been happening gradually, and the same in Europe, we can now report that the entire Caribbean is also coming back on.
In the U.S. Virgin Islands, (U.S. territory in the Caribbean), the service is in full swing, as I’m online right now and that’s where I live, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands to be precise. So be patient if your zone is not yet enabled, because before you know it, it’ll be back on.
We’re getting reports that the service is still down in the Cayman Islands, however, so there are still a few areas without service – but rest assured you’ll be gaming soon. Thanks, Jokati.
We’ve waited over three weeks, I think we can wait a bit little.
Soon the games begin.
