Just in case you were wondering. There has apparently been a DDOS attack, allegedly by a group called Lizard Squad.
Sounds like a bunch of spotty kids to me:x . Especially with a name like that. What are they, bloody Power Ranger fans?
What gets me, and clearly some others on the net, is you work hard all week to sit and relax with a few games in the limited time off you have. These people deserve ridiculously long prison sentences. I mean, why ffs? They dont get any money out of it. Why not go out and have sex, like normal teenagers.
Yours

Not Happy:(

Ah, I was wondering what was going on. I managed to watch Dr Who (Peter Capaldi is great, now that the annoying ginger oik has gone I can start watching it again) on the iPlayer, but couldn't load any friends up on the PS4 or sign in at all on the PS3.

Here we go a"bloody"gain!

The PlayStation Network is currently offline due to a multitude of DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks brought on by the hacker group The Lizard Crew.

:shock::shock:

And there's all my content on my PS4 locked again until it's back up :'(

Not what I need when I'm stuck in the house.


I have figured out why my content gets locked though, it's because my PS4 is not the primary console for my account so that my baby brother can utilise my PS+ subscription.... I might need to change that

No Netflix either. Stupid to have to log in to PSN to be able to watch Netflix. Can't see what's the point.

I'm currently still able to watch Netflix, had it running since before PSN went down....I guess I best not close that application.

I think you'll be okay, I've switched between iPlayer and Netflix ok. But if you can't play any games anyway you may as well leave it open just to be on the safe side!
I did briefly manage to log on, but now I'm off again. I wonder if they are xbox fanboys with a grudge cos PS4 is whooping their ass. I take it MS servers are probably ok?

I had hoped to play Warframe, as it isn't gated by PS+, but you still need to log in to the PSN. Oh well, guess I best spend some time with these little people who seem to live here with me too.

This is exactly how I feel, just wanted to play the new Warframe U14 update AAAAAAALLLLLLLLL weekend, especially with the extra day, which luckily Sony has scheduled for maintenance anyway.

But as we're all old enough to know, this isn't the end of the world, but it is bloody annoying.

I've got the Warframe withdrawals too, but funnily enough I can log in on my PS3.

We are being deprived of our basic human right and should not be allowed to live in such 3rd world conditions.

Besides, its cold and I dont want to get out of bed yet.

In bed!!!:o Its 8.05pm here.

But I agree. If I want to be deprived of my Warframe I'd go and live in one of these undeveloped countries, like Yorkshire.

Its now become a matter for the CIA, FBI, Interpol etc....

The hacker group claiming responsibility for today's PlayStation Network outage sent a bomb threat, via Twitter, about an American Airlines flight carrying Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley. Smedley has confirmed he is on the flight and that it was diverted for security reasons.

"Something about security and our cargo. Sitting on Tarmac," Smedley tweeted. Polygon has reached out to representatives of Sony Computer Entertainment America, SOE and the Federal Aviation Administration for additional comment.
