    I don't think it's anon. They recently said that they'll stop attacking PSN.

    When it was anonymous it seemed as though only the american servers were getting hit, this seems to be worldwide.

    Anonymous doesn't have the organization to take down a major network of servers like PSN.

    its kinda strange that something this huge would be down for that long unless its gbatemp forums (just kidding)
    something out of the ordinary must have happened and my eyes are on anon although they said they wont do it. maybe they went for another thing and this also happened

    Plus the Anonymous said they wouldn't attack the PSN since their war isn't "against Sony's consumers". Which is pretty hypocritical since they already "attacked" their consumers by trying to DDoS their website (which consumers use) and tried to get Sony stores shut down.

    But it's not the Anonymous, it's probably maintenance.

    I'm glad to know that it is not just me. I thought it might be a problem with my internet, but now I know it's Sony's problem and not mine.

    People are saying it's a splinter group, like Sonyrecon. They may not have the same ideas as Anonymous.

    Remember that the last time PSN was attacked Sony said it was 'sporadic maintenance'. I'm not saying that it's definitely this splinter group, but it's a distinct possibility.
