PlayStation Network Was Down For Close to 72 Hours… It’s OK Now, Though
Henry Reeve / 5 years ago
Sony has issued an update over its is-it-up-or-down PlayStation Network gaming service, which is now “back online” according to the PlayStation blog. The blog states “PlayStation Network and some other gaming services were attacked over the holidays with artificially high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay. This may have prevented your access to the network and its services over the last few days.”
It’s funny though, because Sony states that “The video game industry has been experiencing high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay. Multiple networks, including PSN, have been affected over the last 48 hours. PSN engineers are working hard to restore full network access and online gameplay as quickly as possible.”
Well Sony… my PC has been fine, sheesh even uPlay is fine… and that’s an Ubisoft product. The Steam Holiday Sales have been thrashing gamers wallets across the world, as well as Valve’s servers without a single hiccup. So when you say “the video game industry has been experiencing high levels of traffic” you mean your services were hacked and played with, as well as Microsoft’s. Don’t put us in your potato basket, please.
