PSN resumes normal service, maintenance rescheduled


Following yesterday's distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, Sony said this morning both the PlayStation Network and the Sony Entertainment Network are back online. Users can now resume game downloads, play games online, buy stuff off the PlayStation Store, use apps and all the other PSN services as normal.

Furthermore, the PSN maintenance that was due to take place today is to be rescheduled. The company will announce the new date and time for the maintenance "shortly."

Both Sony services suffered outages yesterday following what the company says was a DDoS attack. However, Sony said no personal information was accessed during the attack.

"Like most major networks around the world," reads yesterday's PS Blog post, "the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic."
