Sony scrambles to revive PlayStation Network

April 23, 2011 Leave a comment
Sony on Friday was working to revive its online network that connects
PlayStation 3 (PS3) consoles to games, films, and other digital
offerings.
Sony’s portable touchscreen PlayStation is seen in an event in Tokyo on
January 2011. Sony on Friday was working to revive its online network
that connects PlayStation 3 (PS3) consoles to games, films, and other
digital offerings.
Disruption of service at the PlayStation Network began late
Wednesday and had some suspecting that hackers followed through on a
threat of vengeance for Sony’s legal action against peers that crack
PS3 software defenses.
The Japanese consumer electronics giant
was working to figure out the cause of the Network outage, Sony
spokesman Patrick Seybold said in a blog post with the latest update on
the situation.
“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,” Seybold said in a message posted Thursday.
“Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter.”
The
PlayStation Network outage came during a heavy playing week in the
United States, with many public schools closed for spring break and an
Easter holiday providing an opportunity for an extended weekend.
“Probably
is hackers,” a user with the screen name Drebin Bushido said in a chat
forum below Seybold’s message at the PlayStation blog.
“If they are saying nothing this mean they are hiding something.”
Players
were still able to take part in games offline on the consoles, but lost
the ability to challenge others on the Internet, stream movies, or get
other services.
Internet vigilante group Anonymous had vowed
retribution against Sony for taking legal action against hackers who
cracked PS3 defenses to change console operating software.
A
message signed by Anonymous at website anonnews.org early this month
announced an “Operation Payback” campaign aimed at Sony because of its
cases against the two hackers, one of whom cut a deal to settle the
case.
Anonymous argued that PS3 console owners have the right to do what they wish with them, including modifying them.
The hacker group threatened to retaliate against Sony by attacking the company’s websites.
