Sony's Online Portal Goes Down

Illustration for article titled Sonys Online Portal Goes Down

Sony Online Entertainment's PC portal, home to games like EverQuest and DC Universe Online, is offline.'s homepage currently reads:

We have had to take the SOE service down temporarily. In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday).

It is still unconfirmed whether this breach is related to the PSN breach or if it is separate breach.

Sony initially stated that an "external intrusion" resulted in the PSN going offline. That intrusion resulted in more than the PSN being unavailable to over 70 million account holders, but also user data being compromised.


According to SOE's comment, an update on this latest development is expected later today. Until then, Dinner Dash 2, anyone? - Service Under Maintenance [ Thanks, John!]

This is why you shouldn't poke sticks. Sony decided to declare war on hackers and now they're paying the price. I'm not saying this is good or bad (I'm not happy my CC info. was compromised), just that it is fact.
