News: PS3, PSP and even PlayStation.com are out-of-service again. There's no definite end in sight, either. Sony says it "may be a full day or two."




I guess the saying is true: You get what you pay for. Xbox Live is up and running and no one is complaining about the $60 a year subscription more than usual. Meanwhile, PlayStation Network is down again and everyone with a networked PS3 and PSP is complaining about the free service.

The outage is widespread and includes online gaming, PlayStation Store game and demo downloads and streaming amenities - you can't watch Netflix, Hulu or MLB.TV via the PS3. On top of that, logging onto PlayStation.com just forwards you to the Sony PlayStation's UK website, which displays the unflattering "Offline" network status message, which is pictured above.

The PlayStation blog is up and running along with the pages under US.PlayStation.com. The top update details the nature of the 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. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter."

The message doesn't lay blame on why this has occured or who is responsible. However, Sony has been dealing with a hacker-focused backlash after trying to take 21-year-old George Hotz, or geohot, to court for jailbreaking the PS3. With Tuesday's release of SOCOM 4, Mortal Kombat and Portal 2, all of which have prominent online components, the outage couldn't have happened at a worse time.

We'll let you know as soon as the issues are resolved and PlayStation Network is back up and running.

We'll be giving away games once a week every week!
