These are only things I remember, so it may not all be true.

Apparently, Sony is being attacked by hackers, which has caused Sony to close PSN for maintenance. It should be back to normal today or tomorrow. If there's still trouble, it may take longer. If you only have PS3, or use it more than other systems, this is going to be a bad weekend.

When PSN is back online, the Admin(s) and/or Moderators can lock this thread if necessary.

But thanks for the information.

Why is PSN so badly protected from these things? Yet Xbox Live and everything else works FINE?

PSN is free, while Live is paid for by subscription. I think that says a lot.

Just seems like PSN has shabby sercurity. Surely people would target Live due to having to pay?

Most likely it was targeted by anonymous or a smaller group due to the geohot thing, or it could be that fact that steamworks was integrated into psn for portal 2 and something went wrong. I dunno

With that being said about Portal, people were already playing it before it went down. By that I mean they were signed in on steam through their ps3 already.

inb4 sony says they'll need to implement a subscription fee for all future online features

reason? blame those awful, no good hackers. scum of the earth, those many who try to do something, themselves.

"An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services." Sony says it turned off PSN and Qriocity services on Wednesday to investigate this "intrusion" further.

So yeah, "external intrusion", I wonder what that means

They already make you pay for some of it. There's the free members and the premium members. You can choose to have a subscription, or you can just have a regular membership. It's been down for a while, now.

They don't make you. It's purely optional. I wouldn't be surprised if it's mandatory in the future...

That's what he's saying, that Playstation Plus is optional!

You get alot from the vanilla service for free anyway.

So guys, I hope you like having to change your passwords and junk. Bad news bros.
http://www.joystiq.com/2011/04/26/sony-says-psn-intrusion-compromised-personal-info-hopes-to-ha/

So, what did the bad guys manage to steal? Uhh ... just about everything, it seems. Here's what's in the definitely jacked column: "name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID." Our takeaway: you'd better start changing passwords if you use the same one frequently. We'll leave the decision on whether or not to pack your bags and move away up to you.

In the possibly jacked column: "profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers." That leaves your credit card information, which ... well, we'll let Sony tell you itself: "If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained." Yikes.

And obviously from the horses mouth:

well, does he know about this?

my advice is to tell him to take some kind of action towards either changing cards, or amping up security.. just to be on the safe side.

worst happens, banks lose some money.

And this is why I always remove the billing information when I'm done adding credits to my system. If my PSN money is stolen, oh well, it's just around $5 anyways. Not the end of the world.

He does, but until they announce that they are 100% certain the details are on the net, may as well wait. They sad they were incripted, so they might not of got hold of them.

Sony only cares for the US, not Canada. We're both on the same Continent, why should we be treated differently?
