If you were having issues connecting to PlayStation Network or any of Sony’s websites, here’s the reason. Hacktivist group Anonymous, or a group claiming to them, went through with their earlier promise of exacting revenge on Sony for their treatment of the jailbreak scenario, and their “fellow hackers” GeoHot and Graf_Chokolo.
Were they, weren't they?
Sony websites were down for a while, as was PSN, but Sony said PSN was down due to undergoing “sporadic maintenance”. It’s funny, because Sony has nearly always informed users about upcoming outages and when they would occur, but strangely did not this time round. Hmm I really can’t, for the life of me, figure out why.
Anyway, posted below is the original warning sent out by the hacker group, which can only be called revolutionary pretense. Either way, let’s see how this plays out.
