If you turned on your Playstation 3 or your PSP today you may have noticed that the PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Both SCEA and SCEE have acknowledged the problem and have stated that the PSN is down for maintenance at the moment. Though due to the fact that this was not announced and only mentioned after the system went down, it means that other circumstances are involved. They recently released an update that the PSN will be down for either one or two full days before the service is up and running completely.
The exact reasoning for the outage is unknown and it also comes at a very unfortunate time as both Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat released on Tuesday of this week. Meaning that if you wanted to play with your friends on the PS3 then you are out of luck at the moment. We will keep you updated if any more news is released by Sony about these outages.
