They said yesterday the servers would be off and on for various people throughout the night, for testing purposes. They also said the people that CAN play may lose everything when they officially open them. I just hope by 10am est they are set!
It was by region so your region must have been shut down.
Dragon's Dogma, Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto IV, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, and Defiance...5 of my favorite games ever.
