The PSN’s been down now for well over a day, with sign-in still currently unavailable (even though queued downloads will still work) and there’s no sign of anything changing any time soon.
We’ve come up with ten things to do whilst the PSN is down, but Sony haven’t updated for ages now, so we’ve no idea what’s going on other than Anonymous, responsible for downtime earlier in the month, are saying they’re not involved.
“While it could be the case that other Anons have acted by themselves, AnonOps was not related to this incident and takes no responsibility for it,” said an apparent official statement.
“A more likely explanation is that Sony is taking advantage of Anonymous’ previous ill-will towards the company to distract users from the fact the outage is accutally an internal problem with the companies servers.”
Worse for Sony, however, is the news reaching the all-seeing eye of the BBC, with a story on the news site today.
The article, which will hit more people than (presumably) all the gaming sites in the world put together (and wrapped twice around the moon) will mean that Sony’s public perception will be taking a battering.
Sony’s lack of updates is starting to grind.
