UPDATE: They have a new up video, I personally still believe they actually did have something to do with PSN going down, but what do I know.
The anonymous hacking group has denied any accountability on the current state of the PlayStation Network.
Sony’s PlayStation Network remains down for the second day running after an abrupt outage. So far, Sony has yet to identify the cause of the issue, only saying that they are still investigating the Network outage and it could be another full day or two (from yesterday) before the service is up and running.
In a post over at their official site, Anonymous, the infamous hacking group that previously targeted Sony sites, said for once they weren’t involved. Take a look for yourselves:
“Sony’s Playstation Network, its online service for Playstation 3 and its Playstation Portable consoles, suffered from a major outage today; which is on going as of this writting. According to Son’ys blog, the interruption in service may last into the long weekend – for at least another “full day or two”. Sony released a statement through its EU blog, saying that the network outage may be a result of “targeted behaviour by an outside party”, brining in the possibility of cyberattacks. Adding to the confusion is the fact that the message has since been removed.”
“While it could be the case that other Anons have acted by themselves AnonOps was not related to this incident and takes no responsiblity for it. A more likely explination is that Sony is taking advantage of Anonymous’ previous ill-will towards the company to distract users from the fact the outage is accutally an internal problem with the companies servers.”

Series one of the Killzone 3 action figures have been announced. The figures, standing at 6.5″ high, are very detailed and have many points of articulation. You should be able to pick them up at your local video game and/or toy retailer. Photos after the jump.
Today at 05:46:23 (UTC)/12:46 AM (EST), Japan was hit with a magnitude 8.9 earthquake, creating factories, among other infrastructures, to temporarily shut down.
According to the Kyodo news agency, Sony, who happens to be one of Japan’s mammoth exporters, had to shut down six of their factories as the earthquake caused fires and power failure in the northeast coast of the country. This earthquake will most certainly cause a humongous economic impact on Japan because of its damage to the factories.
On top of the earthquake, a tsunami came rolling in from the coasts of Japan, furthering the damage to the nation’s coastline. Reportedly, a 33 feet high tsunami hit the port of Sendai. The official death toll, so far, is more than 1,000 people, Japanese media outlets are reporting.
Other companies who have been identified to shut down their operations because of these natural disasters were Honda, Hokuriku Electric Co., JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp., Cosmo Oil Co. and more.
