PlayStation Network goes down again for hours

PSN down again in US, Europe for hours

Sony's PlayStation Network has once again gone down, with an error message (8002A548) greeting users trying to log in. Sony is aware of the issue, saying so on its Twitter page. The network is down on a large scale as well, as the PlayStation Blog Europe is also saying the network is down. While the usual promises of work being done to get the service restored are being made, there is no reason given for the outage.

The PlayStation Blog Europe, also through Twitter, promised around two hours are needed to get the system back up and running.

The outage has already triggered concerns. Sony's last long PSN outage was ultimately a cover for its taking down servers following a large-scale hacker attack Sony faced earlier this year. It's likely the servers have been protected against repeat attacks similar to those launched earlier. [via CNET]
