PlayStation Network outage could be for a while yet

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.

The fact that Sony won't keep us updated is beyond irritating. That shows a total lack or respect for the consumer. They care more about PR than keeping there loyal customers informed.

Checked my psn today and what a surprise it's still down. Sony fix this so called under maintenance today or tomrrow or sales will start dropping slowly and then if its not fixed sales of everything that falls under PS3 will hit an all time low/ loss of sales.

"External Intrusion"! Didn't Sony admit to shutting down network themselves? Sounds more like "Internal Extrusion" to me! Hey, just sayin'!

In no way, shape or form am i ever switching to Xbox because of this outage. 3 reasons …
1. Pay to be online. Erm, no way! I already pay for my internet so i ain't paying twice…
2, Cant get used to those stupid controllers with there wonky analog sticks
3 Xbox sucks ass, Sony fan thru and thru. I still have my PS One and PS2.

So c'mon Sony, get ure finger out and fix this situation quickly!!

i believe that sony should get their shit together. there is no reason for this to be happening. i am an avid game player on the network. the fact is, this should not have happened in the first place. plus, their network was down for over 12 hours not even a month ago. this is pushing my patience with sony. Not that i would switch to their competitor, because paying for online is just ridiculous. Playstation owners shouldnt switch just because of the network fail. But playstation should fix the network problems faster, considering that they did just release many… Read more »
