Default playstation network still down after 3 days

Does anyone know the real story behind the PSN outage?

Updated: May 5th (Cinco de Mayo)

Hacker Group Anonymous was behind the attack. Apparently this notorious hacking group hacked the PSN and to make sure everyone knew it was them, they uploaded a file titled "Anonymous" with the text "We are Legion". I google searched "Anonymous We are Legion" and it brought me to a page with a little information about Anonymous. Check out the page here:

Also check out the apparent message the hacking group sent Sony:

Also the creepy Anonymous cyber stalking and cyber attacking of Sony Employees and their families:

I did not ask this question for a whole bunch of stupid console fan boys to come along and rave about how much one console is better than the other. Seriously, what is the point?

They got owned by hackers, and shut down their servers to be safe. Or some shit like that, I dunno.

That's just stupid. Even if it was sarcasm, a joke, or serious it's just stupid...

Good thing I don't play 360 that much, honestly though, people who hack are just nerds who can't get money or girls.

A lot of people say that but with something big like that it's usually to send some message. Before the servers were actually down I heard Anon was threatening to do it so it wouldn't surprise me if they were responsible.

But before people come in and hate on anon they have done some good things with their hacking lol.
