Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps. Then go through the initial setup and then run a Format. You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset). Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

When you combine the subpar nature of the new Play Station Store with the Play Station Network’s well-known series of deficiencies and the company’s seeming inability to fix the issues at hand for a period of time approaching , you have a serious problem.
Compounding this is Sony’s inability to communicate well with its consumers, which is strange, because Sony depends on those consumers to sustain their enterprise, and the patience of those consumers – which was heavily stressed back in 2011 -- is starting to bend significantly once again.

The Play Station Network has gotten a bad rap from many corners of the gaming realm.
