Have you been going crazy with the Playstation Network down? There are literally millions (70 million to be exact) of players that are without a game today. Sony has not been speaking out much about the outage. We believe that they have not been saying much so that people will not know the course of action that they are taking.
Finally Sony claimed that the Playstation Network down problem was because of an attack by an unidentified outside force. They say that they preemptively shut the 70 million subscriber down. Sony Senior director of corporate communications and social media Patrick Seybold has made three updates since the outage began on Wednesday evening April 20th. His latest announcement about Playstation Network down goes like this:
“An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.”
