We told you yesterday we were receiving reports of the PlayStation Network was down in some areas, but the problem seems to be a worldwide one and is still ongoing. Today we can report the PlayStation Network could be down for a while yet.
Jared Newman from PCWorld is reporting that the official PlayStation Blog is saying it may not be back up for a couple of days. Sony’s Patrick Seybold posted on the site and said “While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we’re able to get the service completely back up and running”.
Earlier in the day a post on the PlayStation Blog in Europe stated the company was looking at involvement of “an outside party”, but this was later removed. Anonymous have also said they have nothing to do with the latest PSN downtime, and have recently said they would no longer target gamers in this way.
Hopefully Sony will be able to address the issue soon as the long Easter weekend gets underway, let us know if the PlayStation Network is still down for you.
