Update On PlayStation Network/Qriocity Services

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.

    Freaking Anonymous. This isn’t hurting Sony, it’s hurting the people that want to play games online.

    2nd! Yaaaaaaaaaaay. Here come 9 more pages of people’s complaining

  • MrFunnyBear32

    i really hope this is fixed tommrow.

  • I’d say you could get the word out quite a bit faster using twitter. Thanks for the update. Almost finished with portal 2 SP so hopefully when I get up tomorrow it’ll be fixed so I can start some co-op. Any chance we can get an updated timeframe?

  • jeffsmither

    So you are saying it was hacked? Also, when do you think everything going to be back up?

  • So was it anonymous or Skynet?

  • when will we be able log in though???>??

  • Ix_DarkDragon_

    Thanks for the update Sony. Hopefully you can get the Network up and running again.

  • Really? I thought Amazon’s EC2 services was the culprit. But then again why would Sony rely on Amazon for such things. Anyway, PSN better come up soon…please!

  • PSN IS DOWN!!! IS THIS BREAKING NEWS!!!

  • D0ughb0y211

    Didn’t anonymous say they didn’t do this? This perplexes me, I will replay the story of inFAMOUS to make time go quicker even though I can’t access my inFAMOUS 2 beta :(

  • An external intrusion. In addition to promptly getting service up and running again, are you also taking measures to ensure that this does not become a constant problem for your customers?

  • Probably Amazon’s fault. giant Bomb is still down as well. :(

  • Can you Give us a “Mini” or “PS1 Classic” game Free because of this, Please.

  • Crimson_Ryan

    Good luck guys. I just hope you all can figure something out quickly. I got Mortal Kombat and was so hyped to play with some friends across the country… And, well, I’m sure you can see why that’s impossible.

  • Thanks for stating what the problem is!

    I really hope that people who play/own DC Universe, or other pay2play games get some compensation for all the days they lost to play because of this.

  • FINALLY!!! SNEA lets consumers know what has been going on.

    I really hope you can fix things fast.

    I think i speak for all of the PS3/PSN community when i say “We need our PSN access”!

  • stinkyfishhead

    This is such a bummer.

    Thanks for the update, is there any type of estimate when Playstation network services will be back up and running?

  • Hackers still being pussies?

    That’s a shock.

  • Unseen_Soul

    Like i said, 9 pages of people’s complaining. No one wants to hear about your personal problems about not being able to play your PS3. Quit being addicted. And for the love of Christ, QUIT ASKING ABOUT ANON AND ALL OTHER HACKERS -.-

  • Would have been kinda nice if Sony would have just been up front and honest to begin with. The user base would be a lot less upset at the company. We understand you’ve got to protect yourself and us, the users, but there’s no need to leave us floundering looking for answers.

  • ANDREWdaLEGEND

    sony ur reallly messing with my phening time on socom 4 but just fix it. thanks for the update

  • Why can’t these guys just f*** off?

  • rafael_martines

    Hope that “external intrusion” don’t affect legal customers in the future, that generation are quiting anoying about piracy, playing piracy games online, that people are [DELETED] and walking for us! Sorry for the bad words but is the truth!

  • @Unseen_Soul

    9 pages? Looks more like 20 something comments, and you’ve already commented twice about people complaining. Irony? Or are you just sitting around and waiting for people to complain so you can get on a virtual soapbox?

  • xXCoLtKiLLeR

    Wow horrible PR for real. All you got to say? ETA, anything else? If i was gettin paid $100,000 + a year, i would update the community with more then a sentence or two every few days.

  • lol, just kidding.

    Least an update which, hopefully, should end the “theory” discussions of why it went down.

  • hey…my didnt work….which is why I had my lol….which now just looks lame. oh well, time to get out of cpu chair anyways.

  • Ummmmm i want kill somebody >:(

    There is someone here who is from Puerto Rico???????

  • fuzzyclutter

    anonymous seems to like calling people /entities hypocrites . Anonymous is the hypocrite of hypocrites that is also arrogant to boot . What makes them think that i … as an indivdual gives 2 shakes about their beliefs ? let alone … want to be affected by them . i come home from work and just want to relax and game a little , but a group of arrogant brats think that their “digital baby tantrums ” is going to change how i feel about sony . When in all actuallity anonymouses actions will just cause it to cannabalize itself . people can get over small inconvieniences , but people just CANT stand hypocrites . WAAA we are going to attack everything that we are angry at … WAAA the world doesn’t work the way things should … grow up you spoiled maggots .

    Oh wow. This is their update?

    So now they admit that there was a hacking incident. >_>

    So it’s likely to by Anonymous or a similar group.

    I did read something about how things were downloaded for free, no tax was being charged, etc etc. I guess that’s how that hacker group decided to rebel at Sony? What a bunch of idiots.

    Now no one can use PSN or PS Store.

    Great job…Sony, get this thing fixed now!

    You’re losing a lot of business. Every hour that passes by, you’re ruining your reputation in the industry.

  • bigdaddykraven

    Just make sure you catch the individuals who did this and punish them. Hacking a website or network owned by someone else IS in fact illegal so don’t let them get away with it.

  • anon said they were not part of this most like cause of the steam integration?

  • Alright, well I hope it gets fixed in less than 24 hours.

  • Would all you people stop assuming this is because of Anonymous.

    SNEA hasnt said its them, yet everyone just assumes it is.

  • Unseen_Soul

    @KwietStorm

    I’m not even talking about this post smart ass. Look at the last update, it’s 9 pages of complaining, not 20 comments. GG No Re. And i keep posting cuz people are to stupid realize there’s other things to do then play online on their PS3 all day.

  • ToXiC_Skiils

    Its funny how anonymous says their for us…. yet if their really for us, they would stop the hacking. CAUSE THATS NOT WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT, THE PEOPLE WANT TO PLAY THIER EFFIN GAMES ONLINE

  • PatriotEyez27

    thanks for the update

  • ToXiC_Skiils

    @mixedkidbx
    they shouldn’t even be hacking in the first place

  • they said they turned it off them self’s….. >.>

  • Can’t blame Sony. I can wait. Finish Portal 2 single player. Anon sucks. Get the FBI on them

  • I hope this all gets fixed.. I want to get back online and play more SOCOM!!!

    For what it’s worth Anonymous says it wasnt them, but also said it could be a few stray cats acting alone. I think they just dont want to look bad in the public eye. I still blame them for starting all this bull in the first place. What a mess.

  • Hackers certainly aren’t making any friends/supporters with this. Good. Hopefully this opens up even more eyes.

  • @11 I think that might be why it’s still down so they make sure everything is cool and crispy when it gets back up.

  • Now why didn’t they tell us this EARLIER?

    Anyways, how long could it possibly take? I’m planning on buying Portal 2 this weekend and would like to able to connect my account to Steam as soon as I get it…hurry up and get this fixed!

    THE CAKE IS A LIE!

  • ShadowDoGGG

    Finally, this is what should have been told from the start Sony. Now lets start call of duty cyber warfare

  • This is crap. I hope who ever ‘intruded’ the network is prosecuted to the fullest extent!

  • If those idiot hackers think they are getting positive attention from this they are sadly mistaken, they need to stop getting all pissy that they pirate games or disrupt public lobbies anyore.
