PlayStation Network down for over 24 hours

Have hackers brought the PSN to its knees?

The Sony PlayStation Network has been down for the last 24 hours, with Sony admitting that it might take them "a full day or two to get the service back fully online."

The outage has left gamers unable to log-on to the PlayStation 3 console's online portal, simply greeting them with an error message explaining in rather vague terms that there is an "issue with the system."

After radio silence for much of Thursday Sony has admitted that the damage ma have been caused by "targeted behaviour by an outside party" according to a statement on the EU blog.

A recent statement on the PlayStation US website explains that the situation is so severe that it might take them until the weekend to get the service running at full speed again.

The post says: "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."

Let's hope the fix comes sooner rather than later so that Easter Weekend of online gaming you had planned isn't completely ruined.
