For all of you angry PlayStation fans who were hoping to play some COD Black Ops yesterday, today and perhaps over the next few days. There have been rumors that this outage was caused by hackers that wished to compromise the network although there’s no evidence of this yet.
We also reported on this yesterday especially because it was the release date of the new Mortal Kombat 9 game, luckily the majority of the gameplay is offline but those of you who wanted to fight your friends would have struggled without PSN access. Unfortunately the PSN is still down although the PlayStation blog provides regular updates to all its readers.
Being Easter weekend this couldn’t have come at much of a worse time. The latest update from the PlayStation blog was posted by Patrick Seybold, the Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media where he says that they are still investigating the cause of the Network outage and that it may be a full day or two before they are able to get the service up and running again. He also mentions that they would like to thank you for your patience with this.
The longer the network outage lasts the more frustrated PlayStation 3 gamers will become but hopefully people’s Call of Duty addictions can be put to one side for a weekend. We will update you about the outage should anything else be mentioned so keep an eye out.
