Thread: PSN wil be down for a bit.

  1. #1

    PSN wil be down for a bit.

    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.

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

    It's been down for over a day, now. Not that I'm complaining. It's given me the chance to finish Fallout 3. <3

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

    B| not to me.
    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.
