Sony's PlayStation Network has suffered a pretty sizable outages that Sony PlayStation says might take a "full day or two to fix." Members have been unable to log-in to their online accounts through their consoles for over 24 hours now, and Sony reckon it might be down to a targeted attack from third parties.

Speaking of PlayStation, it was with little surprise that we heard that the PSPgo was on the way out this week. What's more surprising is news from across the pond that their might be life in the download-only Sony PSPgo yet. Joystiq has been told by PlayStation today that production will continue in the US. We're not sure why.
