PlayStation Network Outage

The PlayStation Network has been hacked

Rather than wait for information from Sony USA or sift through the Twitter rumor mill, I decided to see what Sony Japan had to say about the incident.

“PlayStation Network”の障害が長時間続いており、誠に申し訳ございません。当社では24時間体制でサービスの早期復旧に向けた努力を続けておりますが、当社のネットワークインフラを強化するためにシステムの再構築を行っており時間を要しております。

We sincerely apologize for the long-term outage of the PlayStation Network.  While we are working 24 hours a day to restore functionality at the earliest possible moment, we are also taking this opportunity to strengthen our network infrastructure; this will take some time.


This operation is taking a long time, and we realize that this is an inconvenience to many of our customers, but in order to improve our system security, it has been deemed necessary.  We ask for the understanding of our customers and partners.  Restoration will take some time; we ask for your understanding.  For updates on this situation, please continue to check this website.
