PlayStation Network Down, Are Anonymous Telling the Truth?

By Alan Ng - Apr 25, 2011

It’s a very sad time for PS3 owners at the moment, because at the time of writing, we can confirm that the PlayStation Network is STILL down for maintenance, bringing the total downtime into a fifth day believe it or not. Hacking group Anonymous have now come out and stated that they are not responsible for this attack, but do you believe them?

Just to give you a refresh, Anonymous originally targeted the PS3 as part of their initial attacks against Sony for their treatment of a certain infamous hacker, but they have just come out recently, posting a new video saying that they are not behind this latest attack.

We’ve included the video for you below, but what we more interested about, is whether they are telling the truth or not. Don’t forget that Anonymous is made up of a group of individual users, with no direct leader so this could have still been carried out by a few angry members, with or without the consent of the group’s leader.

Sony has already admitted that the downtime is due to the PlayStation Network suffering an attack, so it’s clear that someone is responsible. If Anon are not responsible for this, then who is? Our guesses is that these people may still be connected to Anonymous and that the attacks happened were similar to the ones that Anon first launched a few weeks ago.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Anon are still behind this or not?
