Just a FYI to all. PSN is down. Sony is saying it could be down for a day or 2.
Sucks. Guess we'll advance when it comes back up
Wow, what the hell
yeah they apparently got hacked.
claven and i were ready and able to play our game yesterday but obviously couldn't since PSN was down. Are we going to be allowed to play the day PSN comes back up?
Shiftee, probably not. It simply just depends. We can't wait a whole 24/42 hours for one game. It's the side effect of waiting till emergency day. I know life happens and sometimes thats all you got, but it simply depends on when it comes on again.
I completely agree but this is the first time that I've ever needed to play on an emergency day... and emergency day that never actually existed because of PSN going down.
I'm trying to battle for a wild card spot while the Redskins are already out of it.. so to risk taking a sim loss and potentially missing the playoffs because of that is tough to absorb. If I miss the playoffs because I played and lost, that's fine because in the end I didn't put time and effort into the season, only to have the sim logic decide my fate for me.
I already had an undeserved sim earlier this season, which I lost. I'm really hoping I don't have to go through another sim in this situation.
The servers better be up by Monday...
Lash, Sony has heeded your warning.... They are patiently awaiting your attack...
They are up?
Playstation News said that The Network will maybe be Up tomorrow in Japan and Europe and Maybe Tuesday for the USA.
This is getting ridiculous now...We are nearing the 1 week mark in another 48 hours. I have barely been home since it has been out, but now that the work week is here I would like to game.
Awesome. Gotta love the drama.
Anyone else get this?
Valued PlayStation(R)Network/Qriocity Customer:
We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011,
certain PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account
information was compromised in connection with an illegal and
unauthorized intrusion into our network. In response to this
intrusion, we have:
1) Temporarily turned off PlayStation Network and Qriocity services;
2) Engaged an outside, recognized security firm to conduct a full
and complete investigation into what happened; and
3) Quickly taken steps to enhance security and strengthen our
network infrastructure by rebuilding our system to provide you
with greater protection of your personal information.
We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and goodwill
as we do whatever it takes to resolve these issues as quickly and
efficiently as practicable.
Although we are still investigating the details of this incident,
we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following
information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country,
email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login,
and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data,
including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip),
and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may
have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your
dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have
been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit
card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have
provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity,
out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit
card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have
For your security, we encourage you to be especially aware of email,
telephone and postal mail scams that ask for personal or sensitive
information. Sony will not contact you in any way, including by email,
asking for your credit card number, social security number or other
personally identifiable information. If you are asked for this information,
you can be confident Sony is not the entity asking. When the PlayStation
Network and Qriocity services are fully restored, we strongly recommend that
you log on and change your password. Additionally, if you use your PlayStation
Network or Qriocity user name or password for other unrelated services or
accounts, we strongly recommend that you change them as well.
To protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss, we
encourage you to remain vigilant, to review your account statements and
to monitor your credit reports. We are providing the following information
for those who wish to consider it:
- U.S. residents are entitled under U.S. law to one free credit report annually
from each of the three major credit bureaus. To order your free credit report,
visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call toll-free (877) 322-8228.
- We have also provided names and contact information for the three major U.S.
credit bureaus below. At no charge, U.S. residents can have these credit bureaus
place a "fraud alert" on your file that alerts creditors to take additional steps
to verify your identity prior to granting credit in your name. This service can
make it more difficult for someone to get credit in your name. Note, however,
that because it tells creditors to follow certain procedures to protect you,
it also may delay your ability to obtain credit while the agency verifies your
identity. As soon as one credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the others
are notified to place fraud alerts on your file. Should you wish to place a
fraud alert, or should you have any questions regarding your credit report,
please contact any one of the agencies listed below:

"Finally, Sony somewhat tempered the prediction it offered on Tuesday, when it said that some PSN services would be back up within a week. "We want to be very clear that we will only restore operations when we are confident that the network is secure," the company said."
