Update: Sony tonight issued a statement saying the PlayStation Network outage is due to an "external intrusion" but did not clarify beyond that. A timetable for when PSN will be up and running again was also not provided.Hacker group Anonymous said today they are not claiming responsibility for this particular outage, however. The statement in full from Senior Director of Corporate Communications Patrick Seybold can be read below: 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 info.

On the PlayStation Blog, Sony has issued a new statement regarding the recent PlayStation Network and Qriocity downtime. Resolving the situation is likely going to take longer than we initially thought, although work is being performed "around the clock," according to senior director of corporate communications and social media, Patrick Seybold.

"Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure," he continues. "Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security."

"We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available."

Here's hoping Sony will make up for this downtime once the services are back online, or at the very least, get them up in a timely fashion. You have to feel bad for everyone who just bought Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat.
