It all started on April 20, when the PlayStation Network went down. A post quickly went up on the official US page of PlayStation Blog which revealed nothing new except that Sony is aware of the network issue. Then, a day later another post went up wherein Sony stated that it would take them a day or two to get servers worldwide back up and running. It was only on April 22 when Sony admitted that the PlayStation Network was affected by an external intrusion and that they had pulled the plug on the online services ( which includes Qriocity ) on the evening of April 20 – the day when the first blog post went up regarding the infamous attack. Another day passed, and on April 23, Sony stated that their employees were working around the clock to “re-build” the infrastructure.
