The PlayStation Network along with other major services around the world was slammed with artificial traffic today, better known as DDOS, rendering PSN unplayable and keeping millions of gamers offline throughout the day.
Said Sony on the US PS Blog: Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic.
Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.
We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible.
We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.
Other companies under attack include Blizzard, the makers of Diablo and as of late, Xbox Live. Many companies were attacked today.
