PSN Services Are Returning

Sony Network Ent. has reported that PSN service is returning, but you may experience slowness or login issues as the network stabilizes.


Note: The PlayStation App appears to be functional now. No word on whether PSN is fully restored on the PS4 yet.

The story is too old to be commented.

And so the blackhat hackers 15 minuets of fame ends.

Now it's just the FBI who will be keeping tabs on them.

Yeah you don't really throw bomb warnings around without consequences. Serves them right.

Menkyo1305d ago

calling in a bomb threat on a plane now makes them terrorists and under the patriot act can be held with out trail or representation, so basically they could be disappeared.

Weren't they just a bunch of teens from Ontario?

Did these attacks affect ps3 psn? I have been online for the past 3 or 4 hours now.

Nitrowolf21305d ago

I don't believe so. Apparently it was just PS4 and the ps app that were really affected. And the website to

FITgamer1305d ago

I live Phoenix and it hasn't gone down on PS4 at all here, but a friend of mine in Ohio messaged me from his PS3 said he couldn't sign in on PS4. So i'm guessing it's just select areas on PS4 only.

bloodybutcher1305d ago

I live in Germany, couldn't sign in on ps3 for some time as well, thoughnmuch shorter time then on my ps4

tiffac0081305d ago

I don't think we can even consider them hackers. That's like an insult for the real deal.

trancefreak1305d ago

I still can't get in but hopefully soon.

jujubee881305d ago

Funnily enough I was having an anti-corporation discussion with a guy who works with technologies the other day...

So, this better not be aimed at me, smartguy! :X

This is great news!! I was expecting it to be offline for a few days, extremely pleased that things are returning back to normal!

plasticidolatry1305d ago

DDOS attacks typically last a few hours, not days.

PaleMoonDeath1305d ago

Again very glad to hear, the last hack lasted two months? if that crap happened again, I'd have to go find another hobbie, bugger that.

wsoutlaw871305d ago

the last hack didnt bring down the psn for that long, sony did. There was information stolen so they took it down until it was fully secure. This is just a little ddos attack which dont last long

crimsonfox1305d ago

@ thecowsaysmoo

funny.....xboxOne should of came with all its DLC.

Sharky2311305d ago

Hackers seem to think they're doing everybody a favor! In the meantime we sit at home unable to play anything! Thanks hackers!!!

crimsonfox1305d ago (Edited 1305d ago )

I honestly don't understand what they are trying to achieve. Atleast I can watch the new Netflix series Bojack Horseman...pretty good. It ain't no Rick and Morty though.

Dynasty20211304d ago

PSN was down yesterday but apparently PVZ was still working online.


crimsonfox1304d ago

I couldn't even play single player garden ops. It kept on giving me a "you have to be signed into the PSN network" message.

I was on earlier. Ghosts only had 2,419 players and it normally has 40,000. Cant connect now.

EdoubleD1305d ago

Good, foolish kids looking for attention.
They didn't even get their 15 minutes.

LOGICWINS1305d ago

I'm pretty sure they got more than 15 minutes. People on N4G have been talking about them all day...and will likely be talking about them next week when they actually get caught.

Don't see what the point of them doing all this was. Kids do some pretty dumb stuff for attention. Anyone else see the girl that did the Ice Bucket challenge after getting her wisdom tooth taken out?


Dee_911305d ago

geez logic 15 minutes of fame is a figure of speech.. They will be irrelevant very soon like all the other "l33t haxor groups"

LOGICWINS1305d ago (Edited 1305d ago )

Im well aware its a figure of speech thank you. If they were so "irrelevant", this article wouldnt be at 200 degrees already.

When you give a multibillion dollar company a headache, you got your 15 minutes of fame and then some.

The intentions behind this are unclear, at least to me. But if you're going to protest something, I'd rather a cyber attack as opposed to a violent protest on the street like we are seeing in Missouri where civilians are in mortal danger.

Dee_911305d ago (Edited 1305d ago )

You really should consider changing your name. Maybe something more along the lines of "MyOpinionWins" or "IDon'tActuallyReadCo mmentsIReplyToWins".
You can't say they got more than 15 minutes of fame if people have only been talking about them today.. That's very illogical..I'm pretty sure I said "will be irrelevant very soon"... just read my comment.. yup I did say that.. If you're gonna quote try to quote in context.

Ahh yes.He compares the killing of an unarmed civilian by the police to supposedly Sony not spending its customers money on protecting itself and its customers from DDOS attacks.This has been yet another logical comment from LOGICWINS..
