No news when it will be back up but Sony is thinking of offering stuff to people to compensate for their free service being down. O_O

Re: Any News on the PSN?

Only this.

A source with close connections to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe reports that the attack to the PlayStation Network may be a bit deeper than originally reported by Sony. According to the source, who wishes to remain anonymous, the PSN sustained a LOIC attack (which created a denial-of-service attack) that damaged the server. There was also a concentrated attack on the PlayStation servers holding account information. In addition, “Admin Dev accounts were breached.”

As a result, “Sony then shut down the PSN and [is] currently in the process of restoring backups to new servers with new admin dev accounts.” The SCEE source said Japanese servers may be restored tomorrow while the U.S. and E.U. servers will likely be operational the following day.

While this information is only corroborated via a series of Facebook messages, it is certainly not a stretch. Sony Computer Entertainment America recently confirmed that it pulled down the PSN because of an “external intrusion.” This essentially means that hackers were to blame. Sony is officially conducting a thorough investigation. The PSN and Qriocity services were pulled offline by Sony on Wednesday, April 20.

There was plenty of speculation late this week that the Anonymous hackers group was to blame for the PSN downtime. The group previously targeted Sony in retaliation to the legal action against another hacker. Anonymous has since denied involvement in the current PSN downtime.

Again, this information is from a source who claims to have a very close connection with someone at SCEE. We take these reports for what they are at this time, but it is certainly a possibility. If you have information to share, please do so.

"Everyone deserves the right to know what’s been going on," the source wrote in an email.

Also about being compensated I don't care if I get anything or not it's a free service.

Re: Any News on the PSN?

I definitely agree, Devil's Advocate, but just for our troubles and because Sony is so cool, they are supposedly doing something extra for us.


Oh, and I have a conspiracy theory that Microsoft was behind this attack...

Re: Any News on the PSN?

Regarding compensation, it would be nice if they did something for PSN+ members if it is down much longer.

Re: Any News on the PSN?

New update from Sony.

I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.

As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.

Re: Any News on the PSN?

They will get it back sometime, but it will take a while because they are restructuring the service to prevent future attacks from bringing it down. Also it is not blizzard's, google's, and especially not MS's problem. They have their own products to worry about.

Re: Any News on the PSN?

I definitely think they need to give PSN+ members an extra month or something. I totally forgot about that. Other than that, I really don't think I deserve any compensation.

Re: Any News on the PSN?

see THIS is why i come to the brew you guys are chock full knowledge that i don't have access too nor the time to access it. :P as for if sony gives compensation it would be nice but i doubt they will to those of us that are free members unless its like money added to our wallet that we can use for a DLC or avatar item. or maybe for those of us free guys a month of PSN+ idk but i'm like crait i don't really expect compensation i just want it back up so i can game again.
