This is apparently an attack on sony by fans of geohot.
Congratulations! You are now receiving the attention of Anonymous. Your recent legal actions against fellow internet citizens, GeoHot and Graf_Chokolo have been deemed an unforgivable offense against free speech and internet freedom, primary sources of free lulz (and you know how we feel about lulz.)
You have abused the judicial system in an attempt to censor information about how your products work. You have victimized your own customers merely for possessing and sharing information, and continue to target those who seek this information. In doing so you have violated the privacy of thousands of innocent people who only sought the free distribution of information. Your suppression of this information is motivated by corporate greed and the desire for complete control over the actions of individuals who purchase and use your products, at least when those actions threaten to undermine the corrupt stranglehold you seek to maintain over copywrong, oops, "copyright".
Your corrupt business practices are indicative of a corporate philosophy that would deny consumers the right to use products they have paid for, and rightfully own, in the manner of their choosing. Perhaps you should alert your customers to the fact that they are apparently only renting your products? In light of this assault on both rights and free expression, Anonymous, the notoriously handsome rulers of the internet, would like to inform you that you have only been "renting" your web domains. Having trodden upon Anonymous' rights, you must now be trodden on.
If you disagree with the disciplinary actions against your private parts domains, then we trust you can also understand our motivations for these actions. You own your domains. You paid for them with your own money. Now Anonymous is attacking your private property because we disagree with your actions. And that seems, dare we say it, "wrong." Sound familiar?
Let Anonymous teach you a few important lessons that your mother forgot:
1. Don't do it to someone else if you don't want it to be done to you.
2. Information is free.
3. We own this. Forever.
As for the "judges" and complicit legal entities who have enabled these cowards: You are no better than SONY itself in our eyes and remain guilty of undermining the well-being of the populace and subverting your judicial mandate.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.

I believe that the downtime has nothing to do with this, but Sony is definitely trying to focus on stopping these guys from being the /b/tards that they are. Which probably won't happen. Not sure what a bunch of Internet geeks will attempt to do to a major corporation like Sony...

Ok thanks for that.

There is no maintenance that is the cover.
"This is apparently an attack on sony by fans of geohot." well they aint fans of geohot they are trying to promote the freedom of information to flow. Also the HIVE stopped the attacks at 11:30PM so this was too late to inform anyone. While i was in the Chat they got to 125 Users in the HIVE which isn't really anything so i would thing these attacks have just got started.
The current target is still set on Playstation although alot of talk about targeting the PSN or not, some are for it and some against. Which also shows why Sony haven't said the maintenance is over lol they are waiting for round 2

it certainly WAS an inconvenience for me. i finally beat my hi score on Numblasts Time Trial, and couldn't upload my new score to the leaderboard.... that sucks :( . the only reason i was playing was to advance up the leaderboard...

bloody kids. why cant they get a job and earn a living rather than pissing off hard workers like me with bullshit like this. its just a bunch of 14/15 yeard kids with nothing better to do but make empty threats. I really doubt Sony are scared and im sure their security is more than enough to stop any thing serious from happening.
This was amusing when it first happened last year but now its just irritating.
