Sony has just announced that the PlayStation Network will be down for a full day or two because of network problems. The outage started around 5:50 PM Wednesday night and by 9:34 AM on Thursday, senior diretor of corporate communications, Patrck Seybold has announced that they might be down for a couple more days.
In a press release, Seybold said, “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.”
Many speculated that the PSN downtime may be caused by Anonymous, the well-known hacker. However, it has been confirmed that Anonymous has nothing to do. But Sony has yet to say the real reasons for the PlayStation Network outage.
So while everyone’s waiting for the PSN to go up back again, we suggest that you grab a book and read for now.
UPDATE: The downtime for the PlayStation Network continues, now on it’s second day. Many believe that Sony is experiencing a DDoS attack. From whom, speculations continue. As of now, internet hacker Anonymous has categorically spoke that they have nothing to do with it and has actually “lost interest” on the issue.
