PSN down in some regions, are you affected?

We have had some of our readers contacting us and saying they cannot access the PlayStation Network, and it seems that it is down in some regions around the world.

According to the EU PlayStation blog a message has been posted via twitter which says “PSN is currently down for maintenance. We’ll update you with timeframes as soon as we can.” At the time of writing we think the problem is affecting the United States and Europe.

The official line is planned maintenance but could have Anonymous restarted their campaign against Sony? The group did say before they would stop hitting gamers with attacks on the PlayStation Network, but could have changed their tactics.

But it could be because Sony is strengthening security for the service due to previous attacks by Anonymous. Normally when Sony plan to work on the PSN service they give advanced warning, so it could be a round f fresh attacks.

Is the service down in your area? Let us know in the comments section below.

I've been having issues with PSN for about 5 days now. It was working on and off on 4/20, then the next day I try to get online but it wouldn't let me. I live up in Northen NY. But it makes me wonder. After reading all the previous posts on here. Was PSN down all at once? Or was it a region by region thing? Reply if you have any info. It would be very appreciated.

I don’t really get why Sony with 70 million users elected to make PSN a free service, While I think more than $40 a year for XBOX is fairly expensive compared to PSN it still doesn’t seem that bad. Don’t get me wrong Sony’s PS3 failure rate like all Sony hardware tends to be under 2% in 3-5 years while Microsoft XBOX fail rate (google it) in 3-5 years is about 90% plus (im not joking) due to “red rings of death” – same problem after several years for all xbox owners. How could Microsoft make a more reliable anything… Read more »

It seems hackers could be behind the PSN outage and not maintenance. This is getting ridiculous, they say they're on OUR side but then, how the f*ck is preventing me from playing any online game is being on my side? I don't know why Sony stopped legal action against hackers, probably cuz they are scared of them. They don't seem to stop so Sony shouldn't stop hunting them until they're all bankrupt or in jail. I really don't get how a company earning over 80 billion a year is failing so hard to protect their online services. Are those "engineers"… Read more »

PSN is out everywhere in the world for maintenance. No word on when it's gonna be back. It is really annoying how they just shut down without a warning, during the day. Can't they do that during the night?
