    So i’ve just read that the Playstation Network is back up and running and its all working great on my PS3, but I can’t seem to work out how to get the free months access to Playstation Plus and to the two free games we’ve been promised. Has anyone else managed to download their games?

    Thanks 🙂 x

    I want to add change my credit card on my playstation network account. But when I try it says I need to enter a password. The problem is, I forgot the password. I’ve tried guessing it and couldn’t figure it out so anyone have an idea on how to reset it?

    This just started happening to me…whenever I try to sign on to my PS3 and the PlayStation Network, I get the message that an error has occured and I’ve been signed out of PlayStation Network. My connection is perfect…it just won’t let me sign on to PlayStation Network. How can I fix this and go back to playing COD online?

  5. I just bought GTA the ballad of gay tony on the Playstation Network (my first downloaded game) and i can’t find it in any of the folders. What folder is it located in? where is it?

    It says I need to connect to the Playstation network but I already am. Midnight Club LA is the only game I have a problem with.

  7. I have a psp 3000 and when i try to access the playstation network, it says i need a system sofware update. Oh, and i have a software version 5.01.

  8. I will be moving to China (Shanghai). I want to take my PS3 with me – will being in another country affect anything? I know I won’t be able to play games I buy over there, but will I be able to play the games I bring? Also, will I be able to get on Playstation Network?

    Thanks!
