Good morning, PS3 owners. Unfortunately, despite Sony's best efforts, the Playstation Network is still down... and may be for another two days according to a Playstation blog update. However, it seems that hacker/neckbeard commune Anonymous is not involved, and the problem is related to issues in the Land Of The Rising Sun.
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.
Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we'll update you again as soon as we can. - Patrick Seybold, Sony Corporate Communications
Anonymous have reportedly denied any involvement in the outage - and we're inclined to believe them. After all, they'd hardly call off their first attack only to start another one a few days later. They've got something up their sleeves for when the service comes back online, though. To be honest, they're probably just enjoying the publicity.
So what *is* causing the problems? I'll leave you with this to ponder over.
Naturally we'll keep you up to date with the latest, and the nature of the issue when (or if) it's formally identified.
