I am quitting Sony and Might Move on to Microsoft xBox360 It has a way better consol and isn't down as often as Sony and even if they do get down at least they try to tell us is whats going on.
Its a attack from Anou, if you dont know who they are read some of the other post in the forums, i believe one links a video to their message to sony, but pretty much sony isnt in control of their servers atm, and are saying its maintence so they dont look incompatine (spelling?)
here is the link from the other post to daily motion with Anous message
anonymous happened...at the end of the video, "Sony, prepare for the biggest attack you have ever witnessed, Anonymous style"
I know something but I'm not going to say anything at all, its better to wait it out, play some games offline, or go to the ps2 and play another game for awhile, for the meaning time while waiting for the entire thing to be back up.
I'm sure they'll leave a message if they are back on.
