This is starting to become a regular occurrence, as sadly PSN is down today once again on December 7. Not for the first time, it looks like PSN is not working due to a direct hack from the infamous group known as ‘Lizard Squad’.
Last week, the group managed to take Xbox Live down and now it looks like the global PSN login is down for everyone at the time of writing – we’re guessing as a result of another direct PSN DDOS attack today.
We have tried to use the PSN sign-in ourselves, but can’t log into PSN due to the error CE-34861-2. We know that some of you are also getting this error code, along with other PSN error codes as well since they differ.
The above image is a confirmation that LizardSquad has hacked the PSN sign-in on December 7, making users fully aware that they are fully responsible and not wanting to stay silent about it.
We’ve since seen Sony’s Ask PlayStation Twitter account confirm that they are now officially ‘investigating’ the matter, so hopefully the PSN will be back up very soon.
We don’t know what to say about this, as it keeps happening almost every week now. Is the PSN down for you in your area at the moment? Let us know if you can sign-in, or if you are still having problems.
