Update On PlayStation Network/Qriocity Services

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on Apr 22, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

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.

@ClaudiusCaesar
Same here.

They need to redo their server stability & security so that the network stays up and running without hackers and mega down times like this.

>_<

@CeroDouble
Yea!!!

I mean damn! I wish they’d at least give us an ETA of when we’d be able to go back on PSN & the PS Store!!

>_<

@I1ULUZ
I think we should be watching our bills and checking our online bank information frequently each day, every day anyway…

>_>

I hope that our personal information & credit card information has not been compromised. That would be grounds for Sony to get sued by everyone…lol…for failing to securely manage their network and exposing all of our information to the hackers.

@Movie_Profile
Yea! I hate how some games these days require a constant connection to the PSN to even play! That’s the stupidest idea ever! How the hell would that make things more secure? It’s just an extra nuisance that we have to deal with, especially if the network goes down!

And keeping the game connected online while you play the game is not a very secure thing to do in case the network gets a DDoS attack like this. Hackers could easily get our information if they wanted to.

For that, I’ve disabled the wireless on the PS3 and the PSP til they get things fixed.

This is ridiculous Sony! Come on!! What the heck!!!

@Jayson-b1
An “external intrusion” is what it sounds like…

Something from the outside, intruded into the PSN servers and disrupted service.

So it could be pretty much hackers.

We don’t know if it’s Anonymous, one of their affiliates, or simply another group of hackers all together.
Sony won’t say anything even if they know…which they should at least know this by now since it’s been offline for a week.

(1) Still this isn’t fixed? Are you kidding me? At least Netflix is working…

(2) What free movie rentals do Sony give us? I don’t remember this…

(3) I bought Portal 2, Socom 4, and Mortal Kombat last Tuesday… I wanted to play all of them online this weekend.

+ Da_xavier on April 23rd, 2011 at 9:40 am said:

@xxnike im just saying for those customers who have Netflix you can still use it with out PSN. Also XBL was down for 11 days in 2007. Also PSN is free why complain so much i mean jesus i love gaming and shi go have a life i know everyone says this but its true. PSN is down go hang with your friends and stop asking for free shi people its pathetic only thing free your gonna get on here is carpel-tunnel in ur wrists from whining so much about PSN being down.

Seriously Sony needs to just close shop. This is an embarrassment. What kind of service is PSN if it can be taken down by a bunch of hacker kids? Now my CC info is compromised.

i hate it when people say “go play outside or something”. Now its just psn, then when the entire ps3 goes down like during march ,people will say the same thing. I payed money for my ps3 and I should have the right to play whenever I want. It doesnt matter what u say. I knew I should have bought another console. Sony is a joke. I had some clan matches to play 2day.complete bs

+ Gekidami on April 23rd, 2011 at 10:02 am said:

How is this not fixed yet? From what i’m hearing Sony themselves have taken PSN down, not hackers. In what twisted world is talking your online service down for more then 3 days, just as 3 major games have released (Socom 4, MK, Portal 2) a good idea?

And how am i logged into PSN, posting this comment right now?

@200 Yeah I am and will always (as of when I got a PS3) Primarily a story/sinlgle player.
I love gaming for a good story and just plain awesome game play (Zelda, Megaman, Assassin’s Creed, Uncharted etc). Mutliplayer is fun, don’t get me wrong, but I will enjoy playing a game’s story mode 1st than spend about 60$ JUST to play online *cough you COD players lol*

@232 You always have trophies to update every 30 minutes XDD
I bet this is killing you lol!

@jayson-b1
We don’t know if they’re simply going to fix it and then continue on or give us a firmware up date to really patch the PS3 up and get it ready for the fixed up servers or whatever they do.

I don’t work at Sony nor know anyone that does. I’m just giving you some insight based on my knowledge in tech related matters. Though I’m not like a super-grand-master exper… =D … I do keep up with things.

First, for the people that say play outside, you go outside and KICK ROCKS. There are many of us that are hard working (You know having a job!) people with families(kids, duh!) and we look forward to our personal time to play some video games. I can handle PSN being down, because that is not my only console, but I will say that it saddens me that a HUGE corporation like Sony does not have a strong network infrastructure. Say what you will about MS, but this has never happened to XBL. Sony, I would gladly pay for an online service that was stable and feature rich. Good day to you all.

@PointBlank771
There are also many of us who are trying to find a job, but can’t. Remember that part?

You at least have a job, make money… unlike others (including myself… T_T)

I also find it ridiculous that Sony can’t keep their network running safe, fast, and securely. I mean it’s 1 thing to have an outage for like 1 or 2 days, but to have an outage since like Tuesday/Wednesday of this week..and to still be down and still not be given an ETA of around when we’d get it (besides 1 or 2 more days…yea right…), that’s insulting and ridiculous IMO.

@Lara_Croft_GodHD
I don’t really play PS3 games much online besides an occasional few rounds of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter IV, and Uncharted 2. But it looks like I can’t even do that, or go into the PS Store to buy stuff with the funds I have in my account.

T_T

Sony messed up big time here.

:: goes back to playing SC2 Wings of Liberty and Dissidia Duodecim ::

there losing money every minute their down, they get no money from the store, no royalties or dividends for movies or shows being played and no advertising with their online. i’m sure their working as fast as they can…. but some teenager probably wrote up a virus on the back of a pizza box and was able to outsmart an entire corporation. haha, thats disappointing Sony
