214w ago - Today SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher alongside Senior Director Patrick Seybold via the US Blog have posted update details on the PSN service outages, stating outside attacks may be a possible cause.

To quote: I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don't have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.

As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we're working to get them back online quickly. We'll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.

We sincerely regret that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been suspended, and we are working around the clock to bring them both back online.

Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.

We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.

An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th.

Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.

As you are no doubt aware, the current emergency outage is continuing this afternoon and all Sony Online Network services remain unavailable.

Our support teams are investigating the cause of the problem, including the possibility of targeted behaviour by an outside party. If the reported Network problems are indeed caused by such acts, we would like to once again thank our customers who have borne the brunt of the attack through interrupted service.

Our engineers are continuing to work to restore and maintain the services, and we appreciate our customers' continued support.

While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, 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.

Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we'll update you again as soon as we can.

For further information, please refer to updates on PlayStation.com our @PlayStationEU twitter feed.




Finally, for those wondering PSN error 80710A06 simply means "Issue with the system: The PlayStation 3 system encounted an issue" according to Sony's PS3 error code checker.

Yeah your right, searched on IMDB and found what looks like to be a perfect match.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1521197/

Probably going to be a abysmal movie (political drama -- sound like fun, lol) but is a funny coincidence on the title.

I'm pretty sure that both movie as well as the site are genuine - not sure who own's the site directly but it's without doubt affiliated to Sony as well.

PS3 games cost as much as 360 games, there is no hidden fee there.

I believe the 31st was in regards to all of their services being fully restored, not just getting PSN back online itself.

How did it go from the 31st to only a few more days? I must have missed something.
