Over the weekend, the PlayStation Network (and other major services) got hit with DDoS attacks .
Sony fixed things relatively quickly but now, it seems the PSN is down again. According to a Twitter update , Sony is aware of some connectivity issues and they're working on it:
"Network update: engineers are aware of connectivity issues, are working to resolve. We'll keep you posted – apologies for the inconvenience"
No idea how long it'll take but here's hoping they'll have it back before the day is out. No word on whether or not this is due to another attack or a separate problem but either way, PSN users will undoubtedly be miffed. Don't be surprised to see some sort of act of contrition on Sony's part…perhaps a free game or two.
