    Default PSN down, and no DP chatter about it?

    SO I've had a pretty busy week, and tonight started up my PS3 for the first time in a while. I was unable to sign in to PSN.

    I then looked at the PSN blog and learned that the network's been down since yesterday, and the Sony rep states the network may be down for another 1 or two days. There are numerous juvenile complaints on the PSN forums, with a very few mature messages buried in the threads.

    I was surprised to not find any mention at all of the outage here at DP.

    Did anyone besides me notice?

    I read about it on kotaku. Apparently psn suspects they were actually "attacked" by an activist group, but the group themselves denied it. The article was really vague, with no links to back anything up. Id post a link to it but I'm on my cell.

    At least the ps3 works offline, unlike last march when every ps3 had that internal clock issue.

    Yeah, the lack of PSN sucks, but I just got my PS3 back from Sony last week, so I'm still basking in the glow of having a working system, offline or otherwise.

    Well, I haven't resumed playing GoW (on the PS2) since beginning it a while back (probably over a year ago). And I stalled on Bioshock before travelling to NOLA in late-December.

    I'll use this time to return to those, and take a break from Gravity Crash and the user-generated levels.

    While I certainly took a long time to enter the current-gen gaming scene, I still can't get over just how much I like my PS3. It's just cooler than words can describe, even with the PSN outage....

    Of course it's down just in time to prevent me from unlocking a PC/Mac version of Portal 2 by linking my PSN & Steam account. Damn!

    Same here. At least I'm going out of town for the weekend anyway, so I won't really miss out much.

    Same here. Last time I used my PS3 was to play the Mortal Kombat demo about two weeks ago. Supposedly there was a Home update the other day. I wonder if that had something to do with the outage or if it was the group Announomous again.

    I've seen a lot of speculation about these outages being related to attacks by hackers. If that's the case, my faith in humanity has just ratcheted down a few more clicks.

    As far as HOME goes, based on past HOME outages that haven't affected the entire PSN, I believe that HOME and the rest of the PSN are not married to the point that it could take down the whole network.

    Noticed this last night when I went to play Demon's Souls. No big deal to me. It's nice to have it but I don't need it.

    For some, it's a welcome reprieve from the constant updates that PSN pushes out.

    I hope this makes Sony and Capcom realize not to use that fucking DRM shit for their DLC games.

    I hope they "apologize" by eliminating this DRM bullshit from their games. Not like they ever will anyway.

    It does seem silly, especially since it's not universally implemented on all PSN software.

    Hopefully they patch it out at some point.

    Funny how people forget the similar XBLA outages in 2008.

    I was talking to Joe about it yesterday and he couldn't recall it at all.

    XBL's outages were because of the huge number of new users logging in post Xmas. It was up and down for a week or two and then it was fine. It was also a common occurrence every xmas for a number of years. All the new users hitting XBL and for a day or two, it'd be so slooooow. I think this last year was the first one that I didn't notice anything like that. We all got Undertow for it too as heybtmb kindly mentioned under the jawsum comic .

    Sony still hasn't even said why PSN is down though.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    At least Sony finally acknowledges it was an "External Intrusion" (fancy words for "hackers" ).

    I got Portal 2 linked before it went down, but haven't had the time to play anyway. I'm not happy about my preferred Netflix device being out of service, but again, I've been too busy with school to let it affect me.

    Sony is definitely blaming an "external intrusion" now, but they're also saying they've been meaning to upgrade their security anyway. It'll be down until those "necessary measures" are in place. If it didn't happen now, it'd probably be a planned outage of a day or so eventually.

    I'm perfectly fine with this, just so long as we're not looking at a credit card database breach or something of the like.

    As mentioned above, they have, and they actually began eluding to an "external intrusion" on the official PSN blog around Thursday evening of last week.

    There's also this. Can't vouch for the legitimacy, but time will surely tell:

    *EDIT EDIT DOUBLE RE-EDIT* ... NETFLIX will prompt you for PSN login several times, but if you keep attempting and failing and finally get the PSN is offline for maintenance message Netflix will run properly without a PSN login.
