PSU discusses Sony's options in relation to its continued outage.
Wasn't there a hacker that gave up the ip address of everyone in the lizard squad? Why isnt the authorities doing something about it? What are they waiting for and its not only Sony that is facing this problem so the question should be for all parties affected.
The authorities still have to investigate, even if those are their IP addresses.
Yes i am sure they are but i mean if they are monitoring or investigating those people, shouldn't something would have came up by now considering the recent events unless these are not the people.
Is xbl back up yet? Im on ps4 and Psn isnt back up yet I read somewhere though that kim dotcom made a deal w lizard squad and offered them all(LS) a year memebership if they left psn and xbl alone Supposedly they agreed and they stopped attacking That kim guy said it was all up to Sony and MS now Edit: i completely agree with you DarkAvenger
That Kim guy most likely screwed it up for all of us. Bribing a hacking group, only for them to do it again to get more free sh*t.
Xbox is working fine for me. My PSN is still down.
If there is anything to learn from this it is that we will never be ready for an always online console.
Yep the crap MS tried pitching last year. Its amazing how little I could do when offline. I mean talk about giant paper weight.
I was over my friends house yesterday and he got a ps4 for Christmas. He isn't that good with technology so I helped him out with getting it to work. Can't get online atall ccan't even bring his account over to ps4 or even make a new one. He played cod aw campaign as a guest and stopped playing. Decided to pick up from where he left off and it started it from the beginning because you can't save a game file to a guest account. So you can't even enjoy an offline game on ps4 if you got one for Christmas.
One of my friends is on but I still can't connect, says psn is under maintainance. Its slowly recovering I'm assuming
No problem for me. NA. Could be just holiday traffic with all those sales going on.
I'm on the west coast US. Psn came back online last night for me. But has been down most of today. Luckily I have dragon age to to play offline, which is awesome. Hopefully the psn is back up soon.
psn was up at 2 minutes to midnight for me in wisconsin. 2 hours later, no problems..
So Sony is actually using a company that uses servers to mitigate these attacks, Prolexic. http://www.prolexic.com/cam... Maybe Sony needs to look into hiring an in-house team for each of it's major markets.
I just want to download songs for Rocksmith dammit :(
Seriously I hope they get them , and I hope they do time the scum.
Yeah they could make their old and new systems (both of which use the network) less appealing and awesome so they would stop selling at unbelievable rates and then they wouldn't Have to deal with these pesky customers using all their servers. Or people and developers could see the magic and superiority of single player and local co-op and move the emphasis back to there like in the ps2 days
