Yeah you read that right…if you’re a PSN user you’re still fucked when it comes to trying to do anything via the PlayStation Network. At least I can still watch Netflix.
Yesterday morning, we posted about the hacker collective Anonymous threatening to attack Sony web servers April 4th, and sure enough Sony.com and Playstation.com were down for the count. But Sony is blaming the outage on “sporadic maintenance.” Sorry, we can see the man behind the curtain Sony.
In only a way that makes the Internet proud, the well meaning and organized hacker group has set its sights on Sony for their constant threats of lawsuits based on intellectual property rights. The straw that finally broke the Anon’s back was Sony’s official action against hackers who cracked the PlayStation 3 wide open.
