Sony's PSN+ - It pays for itself. Updates and more ...


Recommended Posts

I haven't, purely on the basis that I should not have to. Nobody should.

 

I mean I get the whole principle thing but its a fairly simple fix. Why put yourself through the pain?

 

PSN has been up for me since 2 days ago. No MTU changes needed on my end.

Calling out your own trolling because it apparently wasn't savage enough for anyone online to give a shit about,... That's a first world problem! 

IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED.     Aw man, I just bought Knack two years ago for $7.99. I knew I should have waited.

Heads up, everyone, the season pass for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is currently on sale on PSN for $4.49 (normally $29.99). You don't even have to have PS Plus in order to get the deal.

I don't think I did in hindsight. I logged out as an attempt to fix the issue and could not log back in again until I did the MTU trick and lost sight of the fact that logging in as a user and connecting to PSN are not one and the same.

 

Gotcha.

PSN January titles. Reiterating what was already announced. Glad I held off on The Swapper though.

 

First Light is a stand alone title by the way. You don't need Second Son to play it.

I haven't tried the MTU trick yet, but here's a possible explanation on why it works:

I find it funny that someone else may have figured out this small change before anyone at/with Sony.

 

Sony has had DDoS prevention hardware/software since the launch of PSN and people should really research how to properly set their MTU size before blindly making changes they read on a forum.  

 

The bigger issue with the recent DDoS attack for Sony is that they have not scaled their infrastructure to compensate for the large increase of people using PSN since the launch of the PS4 (another reason why it has stability issues when not being DoS'd). They have done minor bandwidth increases and small additions to the server farms. So, when they were being flooded with packets the infrastructure took a massive shit, came back up, took a massive shit, came back up, took a massive shit, etc. Now take into account that the authentication servers crashed hard with a good number of servers needing to be reinstalled, the time it took to rebuild the databases and you have your answer for the longer than expected outage.

I never had to change mine, but changing the MTU worked for a ton of people. I can't blame them for trying.

 

Soon after that, Sony added the MTU adjustment to their support pages. They now say it's not needed.

Right, MTU has nothing to do with the server/service but within your own network otherwise you'd be changing it for every website you visited.

 

As of earlier this morning the portion of PSN we host was fully back online. No idea why they added the MTU change to their support page, but dealing with some of their engineers it doesn't surprise me.

Nothing there for me. I'm actually rather glad as I've got Tomb Raider and The Last of Us sitting on the HDD from the Dec/January offers, and would like to buy the Driveclub Season Pass.

 

Is the 10% discount from the downtime active in accounts yet?
