This ain't local, Its WORLDWIDE!!
Throughout the year, SONY have been in court taking it to the hacker scene.
A post here.... http://www.ibprobattle.com/index.php?showtopic=13920
tells a fraction of the story.
Anyways..... A Hacker Group who remain "Anonymous" (pun) decided to let Sony know that they would soon be involved in the matter due to the recent happenings, and.....
As you are no doubt aware, the current emergency outage is continuing this afternoon and all Sony Online Network services remain unavailable. Our support teams are investigating the cause of the problem, including the possibility of targeted behaviour by an outside party. If the reported Network problems are indeed caused by such acts, we would like to once again thank our customers who have borne the brunt of the attack through interrupted service.
Our engineers are continuing to work to restore and maintain the services, and we appreciate our customersâ€™ continued support.
As for the real reason behind the worldwide network outage it is still again anyone's guess why it going to take a DAY or TWO to repair, and even tho the Europe Arm of Sony was hinting towards "possible attacks", 'Anonymous' group has made it clear in their IRC channel to many angry PSN users, that they are not in any way shape or form behind this current outage!Yeah..... RIGHT!!!!!
