Update published at 4.25pm GMT:
Testing complete and a couple of technical problems have been found. We need to iron these issues out first and I’m waiting to hear how long that might take (I’m not qualified to even guess, its very technical). Apologies, I know you all want to get in but we must get these things right. And please remember, this is a beta and today is our first step into the Open Beta environment and what we’re doing today is part of the beta process itself.
Apologies for the delay in an update, you may have noticed a PSN outage in the last hour. Things seem back on track now although the outage delayed us a little we are moving again. Hope to have another update soon.
The PlayStation Network appears to be down, but we hope it will be back soon.
