Sony working to restore PSN functionality in light of recent Lizard Squad antics.
If you haven’t heard – and you probably have, since you’re unable to log into the same – the PlayStation Network has been taken down courtesy of hacking group Lizard Squad. While Xbox Live has been on and off with its services since Christmas Day, PSN hasn’t had as much success in getting back up.
Sony finally provided an update on the situation through the PS Blog as SCEA VP for Consumer Experience Catherine Jensen stated 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.
“From time to time there may be disruptions in service due to surges in traffic, but our engineers will be working to restore service as quickly as possible.”
