Anyone else getting this problem? I am a psplus member but signed up on trion's site for the PC beta as well, not sure if that has something to do with it. Either way I'm bummed :/

I think it just means the servers haven't been switched on for EU yet.

Well unfortunately I am in the US, so unless their US servers went down for maintenance I am still SOL :(

Yeah I just switched to my US account and its happening there too. Maybe they are doing unscheduled maintenance or something, I'm sure Sledgehammer or one of the other members of Trion's team will be willing to help.

I'm actually having the same problem, hoping to get on some time soon. Playing the Beta will be the deciding factor on if I get this Day 1.

I'm currently experiencing this as well. I signed out of the PSN and have been unable to sign back into that so I imagine that is part of the problem for me at least.

Same here. Are you also getting error code 800A203? I can connect to the Internet via the browser on the ps3 I just can't connect to the PSN so that would be why I can't sign in to Defiance. I also get the message when trying to manually sign in that the PSN is under maintenance but I can't find a reference to any maintenance for today so IDK.

Yep thats what happening to me. I used the "Log Out" feature in the beta and then started getting all of these errors.

I can also sign into my secondary profiles no problem so the issue is definitely tied to my main PSN ID. Hopefully it gets resolved soon whatever the issue is.

Maybe it has something to do the "console link" option.

Click "OK" and a second "CRITICAL" message pops up saying, "Your connection to the DEFIANCE servers has timed out. Please log in again." So any clarification on this by a mod would be appreciated because I have great internet connection so I'm not the problem.

You could always try resetting your connection/ connection settings on PS3 worked for me a few times with early PSN problems.

I am still unable to log into my main PSN account (the one I used to link my console) and I either get error 800A203 or a message that the PSN is undergoing maintenance. I am able to log in under my sub account and can even launch and play the Defiance beta under that account. I don't know if any of this is connected but when I was playing under my main PSN ID earlier, the whole system froze during an arkfall so I did a restart and I haven't been able to log in with that ID since then.

This is on the US server just to clarify.

I linked my console also, but I just logged out and couldn't get back in. I'm betting the console link is the issue.

You actually dont need to link your console to participate in the beta. I'm just speculating that our problem(s) have to do with whether we initially linked our consoles earlier today.

I downloaded, installed and began playing just fine earlier today. I am still able to play the beta on an alternate account on my PS3 but like everyone else, I can no longer log in to my main PSN ID.

I have reset my router and my modem twice at this point as well as unplugged the PS3.

Same. I can use the Internet browser no problem and when I do redo the network settings and run the connection test it obtains an IP and Internet connection just fine but always fails to connect to the PSN. I also disabled the media server but no luck. I have three accounts on my PS3 and the only one that can't connect to the PSN or launch the beta is my main PSN ID.

Not true, I only have one account and one console, and I'm getting the error.
