The Lizard Squad claims responsibility for a cyber attack that affects the online connectivity of PlayStation users. Catherine Jensen, Sony’s vice president of Consumer Experience:
The video game industry has been experiencing high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay. Multiple networks, including PSN, have been affected over the last 48 hours. PSN engineers are working hard to restore full network access and online gameplay as quickly as possible. If you received a PlayStation console over the holidays and have been unable to log onto the network, know that this problem is temporary and is not caused by your game console.
