Anyone else getting a screen saying that they are doing maintinance? I noticed yesterday.
Which is why XBOX is better.
It was taken down by the hacking-group "Anonymous"
This has been going on for a couple days now and it's really starting to irritate me. I don't play on PSN much, but I want something out of the store really bad at the moment.
ANON denies taking out the PSN and Sony refuses to talk (like usual). Sony can't even give an estimate of when they might come back up. Whatever happened, it was bad.
It's been down since Wednesday, very annoying as i just bought Mortal Kombat on Wednesday and it's easter so i actually have time to play now, should have bought the 360 version even though i hate the 360 pad for fighting games :bang2:
Just checked XBOX Live.
Still running guys.
Just kidding........to anyone who's gonna get pissed.
They've been hacked. And when it comes back on line, you shouldn't log back in for at least three hours after they are back up/
It has something to do with ensuring the security once the system is back up. They have to do some testing with it live. At least that is what my wife said she read from Little Big Planet.
No, it was taken down by Sony. At least it was this time.
sounds like this is gonna take a while
From their blog
correct the guys who brought it down before posted a vid sayin it wasn't them this time
heard a rumor someone hacked in thru call of duty or something.
Then how come XBOX live never is down and PSN is down more frequently?
I thought it was just me ,this is uncool. Why would they hack this? Is their any monetary value in doing this or is it just like sabotage vandalism like spray painting graffitti?
Nerd fame i guess
It was a protest for the way that they(Sony) handled the GeoHot jailbreaking. They wanted to punish GeoHot and everyone for downloading it. Sony got tight last couple of years eliminating features in the PS3 like multi-OS. So GeoHot decided to let people choose how they wanted to use it and undo any Sony updates.
The cfl is still on too.
Have fun paying for online gaming?
