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.

You know, even though Anonymous stated that they realized they were only hurting the players and not Sony because of the hacks and that they would stop, I think they are still up to no good. They are probably still hacking, causing some PS players to be like, you know what, if this keeps up, I might consider getting an Xbox or Wii. Then, Sony will lose customers, therefore Anonymous will win. People need to realize that its not Sony’s fault. Just like what Rustbucket80 was saying, people try to target big companies just to get a kick out of it. Everyone needs to support Sony, give them the time they need to really fix this problem, and just wait it out. Besides, PS3 owners can still have a great time with all the amazing story mode games….Uncharted/Killzone/Socom/Resistance/LittleBigPlanet.

SGAShepp: You are so off-mark. If gaming account integrity was their main concern, why would they make it so that Japanese accounts can create ‘fake usernames’ that look exactly like any other PSN username? Why does PSN downloadable game Chime, ~four weeks after release, still not download and display leaderboards?

I think the problem is that there is probably one guy somewhere high up in their management that has no clue when it comes to the internet, but has a lot of clout. This guy totally freaks out whenever something comes up about online stuff, because his mom or something told him to always be careful about hackers and other miscreants on the internet that might totally steal his ‘intellectual property’. Everyone else is afraid of this guy, and has to ‘work-around’ his [DELETED] objections to cool features that are possible. That’s what I feel bad for sony about.

@365: Newell is too obese to do that kind of thing. ;) Just kidding. I love you Gabe.

i honestly thing Sony should give us something. even if they made a custom DLC background that said “I survived the Sony blackout” it would be funny and something to say their sorry

its not Microsoft you tard. this is illegal and if it was Microsoft they would know by now, XBL would be shut down along with anything else they run that they could use to hack. it could cause their entire corporation huge fines, suspensions and they would have to pay for damages. that said, it could still be someone who works at Microsoft, which is a different story, but i highly doubt it.

UPDATE!, i have recived an update on the statement i have just relised, my brother, so stupid it might just be the end of him, has read the date on the post stating Anoms involment in this attack, HOWEVER!!! even though it is or may be allready known that the hacker Group Anom was the source of the first PSN attack back in march! i shall provide links show proof, i apologise to Anom, (i belive the message the promote, but i do not agree with the methods they use to premote said meassage) may you live long and prosper

Got that right. I have an xbox also and I can’t even do anything as basic as playing online because I got to pay for the privilege. So I guess I get nothing.. right?

Well, I played Dungeon Hunter for a couple hours, and then blasted through a couple missions in SOCOM 4 (as well as several trophies). Once I did that the sun was nice enough to come out so now I’m gonna go get drunk on my porch…hopefully I’ll get some online play in tomorrow.

Staring at the computer screen won’t make the PSN come back up sooner.

At least go play some video games, clean the house, clean your room, or do anything…

Go order take out food and eat it. I dunno~

You think they’re working overtime on holiday hours? I doubt it.

I bet they left their offices and then Monday will start to work on fixing it.

This world wide outage is on its 3rd day & it reminds me of a similar problem PSN had at the end of February of 2010. Remember the date problem it had!

I have a feeling that this time, it might be caused by Data Storage…

Anon said:

“We have attacked Sony in order to send a message that gamers worldwide have certain rights, and are not merely sources of income. Your temporary inconveniences have allowed a lasting impact to be made upon Sony, and other corporations that are tempted to follow in the pursuit of sacrificing service to customers in exchange for larger profits. Although you may have been unable to game for a day, this event will likely provide hundreds of hours of such in the future. Anonymous are gamers too. And we support the rights of people worldwide, and will stand up for the right of having access to the device that you BOUGHT.”

Children I swear. “you may not have been able to game for a day….” It went down wednesday. Were do they think they get the right to get our online gaming shut down? I swear, the 70 mil PSN users should sue them. How the heck is this not a federal offence to hack into someones network?

Digital breaking and entering anyone?

“youHacking is a felony in the United States and most other countries. When it is done by request and under a contract between an Ethical Hacker and an organization, it is legal. The most important point is that an Ethical Hacker has authorization to probe the target.”

So, if it is illegal, and we have the confession…………….does anyone see were i’m going?

@siriusbee
If you’re going to be put off by something like that, then don’t watch it, cause it won’t be entertaining for you. It’s really good for what they’ve been given to do it and the new direction is cool. Seeing things from other peoples points of view (ie. MK from the Director’s PoV) is fun and interesting. While I agree it is not perfect, it is entertaining and fun.

Also, anyone read The Walking Dead here?
