I honestly wish these guys would get busted.

I agree with their point of view but i dont agree with what theyre doing. Theyre not screwing SoE over, theyre screwing their customers, and SoE screws their customers enough as it is without needing help.

Funny. During Christmas time there was a string of hacked accounts all over SoE games yet, they never admitted it could have been an outside attack on their servers... Maybe this is evidence enough? Who knows. At least they are learning and not trying to withhold this type of info anymore!

So now both PSN worldwide and SOE's service have experienced 'external intrusions'?

Firstly:

"Station Cash and account services appear to be working normally." I know there's probably nothing in it, but that just made me chuckle. Typical SOE :P

Also, it's not just SOE's products: PSN (that's Xbox Live for the PS3) has been down since at least yesterday, probably more, just as I was getting back into MAG and BFBC2. It is MOST vexing.

Being super easy to hack and play pirated software, sure didn't help the Dreamcast out.

Two big thumbs up if this is payback at Smedbucks. If its to get back at the PS3 hacking thing then that sucks.

@winterborn I think it's fairly safe to assume it's a PS3 thing.

Haven't gotten my Killzone 3 fix in 3 days. Fighting the shakes. And I thought quiting drinking, smoking cigarettes and crack cocaine over a 3 day weekend was hard.

I wonder if this is because of the Anonymous Group attacks...

@Ryn This would almost be a certainty.

I'm willing to bet that Sony has had a ton of personal information stolen (as in every PSN member) and is trying to clean up the mess before the media finds out and the sh** really hits the fan.

@Laephis

Hopefully that isn't the case. Whatever is going on must be serious business for them to allow PSN to be down multiple days.

If it is the Anon folks, like it seems to be, I've noticed many folks being more irritated by this downtime on both Sony websites and PS3/PSN than any sort of good feelings for Anon's cause (which supposedly is the GeoHotz issue?).

So, this may be biting them in the butt more than gaining them any fans.
