Windows 7 Ultimate

I am gonna laugh, if they take it down again shortly after the update. I already bought a new game for my psp, and no longer need the network. Bring the sucker down. Again and Again

The SOE services have also been hacked, which is what MMOs such as Everquest 2, Star Wars Galaxies, Vanguard, Pirates of the Burning Sea etc use. All of them games and forums are offline now too. And I'm registered with SOE from when I played Star Wars Galaxies, and I play Pirates of the Burning Sea now :/

SOE Services were back online last night. Managed to login to a couple of games. It said PSN services were coming back on at the same time, but none of my friends could get on.

Apparently most parts of USA and Canada have come on-line now, just waiting for the EU :)

Here is an email being rolled out to all PSN users...

Dear PlayStationŽNetwork user:

As you may have heard, PlayStationŽNetwork was suspended worldwide on 20 April 2011 following a criminal cyber attack on our servers. We're pleased to say that we have now started restoring some PlayStation Network services. Over the coming days, more services will be back up and running and you should keep an eye on and PlayStation.Blog at for the very latest developments.

Before you start using PlayStation Network again...

In restoring PSN, we have introduced a safety measure which means you will need to update your PlayStation Network account password before you can start using PSN again.

If you've got a PlaystationŽ3, you can do this by updating to system software version 3.61 and then signing in to PlayStation Network from the XMB (XrossMediaBar) Menu. Find out more at Otherwise, you can change your password by visiting on your PC. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes and if you'd lke more help you can follow the step by step guide at

Free games on us...

To thank you for your patience whilst PSN has been unavailable, we'll be rolling out a Welcome Back programme for all PSN users shortly; this will include free games to download and a month's free subsciption to PlayStationŽPlus (or a free month for existing members). Once available, we'll publish a full list of Welcome Back offers in your country at

Again, we would like to thank you for your patience and support whilst our teams worldwide work to get PSN back up and running. Remember, for the very latest updates, you should visit, PlayStation.Blog at and follow us on

We look forward to seeing you online soon,

The PlayStation Network team

Read rest of story here. Looks like this is about as bad as it can get. If you have an account on there I recommend password changes to anywhere you may have reused it, probably give your CC company a ring too.
