PlayStation Network down for the next two days

If you’ve turned on your PlayStation 3 recently, you may have noticed the inability to access any features of the PlayStation Network.

Official word from Sony’s blog is that the outage, which is affecting North American, Australian and Asian regions, may last for about two days.

There has been speculation that hacker group “Anonymous” had a hand in this outage due to a previous attacks on Sony’s services. However, a member of the group claimed that “Anonymous” has no connection to the outages.

“ATTENTION: For everyone coming here complaining about the PSN or inquiring about it, We Do Not Know What Happened,” a member wrote on the group’s Facebook wall. “This is not the work of Anonymous.”

So, kiss those dreams of “Portal 2” online co-op goodbye as you stare at the 80710A06 error mocking you from your television screen.

UPDATE: There is still no official word on when the service will be running again. However, the Sony blog now states that an “external intrusion” was the cause of these outages. Who or what caused the attacks is still unknown at this point. This may be a good time to play a few single-player games.
