While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we’re able to get the service completely back up and running. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can.

Wow finally an update from them. They were hacked… Hmm wonder why?
Well thanks for telling us now that YOU yourself shut it off. Thanks for notifying us . Ok so they said an intrusion, how do i know now that all my credit card info etc. was not mainstreamed to some fat nerds computer during this attack?

And how bout you answer the real question here before you send a majority of your community to another console…… Give us a damn ETA. First you said 1-2 days. What now?

They will be put in jail because its against the law. They are practically stealing and ID Theft so they will most likely go to jail, won’t pass go, won’t play Mortal Kombat (///-^)

@ xXCoLtKiLLeR:

I think YOU better learn the laws, bud. DDOS are most certainly illegal, at least in the US and UK. Other countries have similar laws:

Quoted from Sophos blog:

“For instance, in the UK (where I am writing from today), anti-DDoS laws have been in place since 2006 and could result in you being sent to jail for up to ten years. Similar laws have also been present in Sweden since 2007.

It’s the same story in the USA, where they take a tough line on those who engage in denial-of-service attacks against websites. For instance, last year saw the jailing of a man who launched a DDoS attack against the Scientology website.”

Eh People this has nothing to do with hacking. How ever Sony’s stocks that is (TYO:6758) is suffering greatly.

Los Angeles – Sony (NYSE: SNE) and Microsoft (NASD: MSFT) aren’t expected to launch their next-generation video game Kotaku reports, citing industry sources. “Both MS and Sony are telegraphing to each other that they’re delaying, to milk the current [generation] and fill in previous craters better,”
So why do Companies telegraph each other? I thought they were bitter rivals?
Telegraphing Each other? Eh, I am confused on this matter, what does one company have to do with the Other?
and as for the PSN being Down for so Long? I would bet to say that there having issues with “Cloud” and nothing to do with hackers. Amazon and Sony are both down that means a single entity is responsible for the issue and that my friend goes beyond hacking.

Update On PlayStation Network/Qriocity Services

Countries: AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ

An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.

Latest Update for PSN/Qriocity Services

We sincerely regret that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been suspended, and we are working around the clock to bring them both back online. Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.

We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.
