From the official Playstation blog :

“An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.”

If you’ve having issues with your PS3 involving the login to the Playstation network, this is why. It’s incredibly annoying when trying to use Netflix.

    At least you can use Netflix after a couple of failed attempts… Hulu can’t be used at all. Kinda sucks that I can’t use a service that I pay for & that’s not connected to PSN’s network because Sony stupidly prodded the online community with their pathetic lawsuits.
