Sony have issued a statement regarding the current PSN downtime, which has been since Wednesday evening.
“An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services,” says the brief blog post, echoed across both the EU and US versions.
“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.”
We’re assuming ‘external intrusion’ means some kind of internet-based hack. Frustrated? Don’t be.
