    Playstation Network has been down for the past two days. Nobody can play online and some Capcom games can't even be played offline

    God dammit I had this

    The context is that PSN is down, has been since early yesterday, and most likely won't be backup until after the weekend.

    I am so confused, all my clocks say it is still Friday.

    I can only presume that I have been stuck in some form of time field that nullified the flow of time in my area, even for electronic devices, and the world has continued and no-one noticed that I was missing.

    Or the issue was big enough for T&G to want to do this comic ASAP.

    Or they wanted the weekend free to do other things.

    Nah, temporal wonkery is most likely.

    I had not been previously aware of either of these two issues.

    Yet from reading the comic, it was immediately obvious that this what the joke was.

    Why do people find PA so hard to figure out sometimes?

    This very issue is preventing me from playing Portal 2 co-op with a friend.

    With both Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat released this week, and Steam's much-hyped integration with the PlayStation 3, it is a very bad time for the PlayStation Network to go down. Sadly, the service has been out for the past few days, and Sony isn't sharing much information on what's going on, or when we'll be able to play online.

    "While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we're able to get the service completely back up and running," Patrick Seybold, Sony's senior director of Corporate Communications and Social Media wrote on the official blog. "Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can."

    Dylan Cuthbert, game designer and programmer at Q-Games, seems particularly unhappy with the situation. "PSN is being DOS-attacked? [That] doesn't make Sony look bad, it makes hackers look bad, and meanwhile unrelated people (us) lose money... crazy times," he wrote on Twitter.

    The failure of the PlayStation Network also negatively impacted the Q-Games' plans for an update to its latest game. "We had a big free Easter weekend [PixelJunk] Shooter 2 unlock planned, but we had to give up on it because of the stupid hacker PSN DOS attack, idiots." Cuthbert continued. He then clarified that he wasn't sure if the outage was due to a hacker attack. Still, why is Sony refusing to comment on the causes of this outage?

    For now, the PlayStation 3 is strictly an offline system, leading to many sad gamers this holiday weekend.
