Poor old Sony was hammered by both media and its own users earlier this year, after news broke of a large-scale hacking of its PlayStation Network. And now it’s happened again.
Spanish police this morning say they have arrested three involved in the hacking of Sony’s Playstation Network, which shut down the PlayStation 3’s network for month, locking nearly 80 million gamers out of playing online.
Shortly past midnight, U.S. Pacific Time, Sony announced that PlayStation Network service had been restored in Canada, all 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico. PSN, down for 22 days following a massive cyberattack on April 19, continues to be restored in stages in Europe and in other regions.
