PlayStation Network, still on the fritz
Things are still looking bleak for the PlayStation Network; the gaming network (along with Sony's Qriocity streaming music-and-movie service) has been down since late last week, depriving some 70 million users of access to connected gaming and media streaming. Signs point to an attack, and suspicions initially focused on hacker activist collective Anonymous (which had targeted the company in the past in retaliation for the company's suit against George Hotz). The group has denied responsibility, albeit while reaffirming their distaste for Sony. With PSN still dark, the mystery continues, and Sony continues to rebuild.
