Oh, now what?
After reassuring users that all was well in the world of Sony Online Entertainment last week, it seems a new problem has arisen: SOE is down for maintenance and in a statement issued this morning, they said:
"In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems, we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effectively immediately."
Grand. But we're hoping SOE learned a valuable lesson after Sony came under fire for not detailing the PSN attack last week. If personal information has been compromised in any way, we assume SOE would've let us know about it; if it's more technical on their end and doesn't really affect the customer, that's something else.
But whatever the problem is, we're sincerely hoping this doesn't turn into last week. That was just brutal, and Sony really doesn't want to have to go through that again.
