PSN users will be finally able to resume normal use of the service after hackers targeted online gaming services by Sony and Microsoft over the holidays.
Sony Playstation have released an update to their blog post stating:
“PlayStation Network is back online. As you probably know, PlayStation Network and some other gaming services were attacked over the holidays with artificially high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay. This may have prevented your access to the network and its services over the last few days.
Thanks again for your support and patience. We’ll provide any further updates here.”
While Microsoft’s Xbox Live service was also targeted by these attacks, the service was back up and running in a matter of hours but now it’s being reported that another group known as H4LT have allegedly leaked the official Xbox One software development kit opening up the possibility to homebrew consoles. The group posted the announcement via Twitter stating they did it purely in the name of ‘creativity and research’ for the community.
