The PSN is working for me. Could it be your provider?
It my not ne an SCEA issue. This is the internet. There could be a breakdown anywhere along that highway. Maybe the line from one tower to your PS3 has a pile-up?
How is it that Tuesday still sneaks up on Sony? I mean it is almost as if they are trying to upload stuff to somebody's dropbox account. And their upload speed is crap. I just dont understand why I still put up with this crap...especially if I were a developer and had Day 1 Digital content supposed to be released...hmm...i guess i can spend this money elsewhere.
