In the early hours of today PlayStation Network service stopped working, since then the players get an error when trying to log on. Apparently is a worldwide outage, but we can not confirm that all PSN servers are affected.
So far, the cause of the PSN outage is unknown. The official PlayStation blog reports that they are investigating the cause of the failure and working to raise the service as soon as possible, however this may take 1 or 2 days:
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.
So until further notice PlayStation Network will be in maintenance friends. Some rumors says that the failure cause could be a hacker attack over the PSN servers, but there is no official statement on the matter.
