The same group took credit for an Xbox Live outage last week. While there are reports that PSN is up and working for some users again, at this time visiting the PlayStation Store still returns an error reading: "Page Not Found! It's not you. It's the internet's fault."
UPDATE 1: Sony is continuing to work on getting its services back to normal this morning, and has urged anybody who has experienced difficulties with PSN to try it again. We will update with any further information. Original article continues below.
The group Lizard Squad, which has a website based in Russia, tweeted this following in reference to the outages:
Sony is aware of the issue, has said it is working on it and will keep PlayStation users updated as things change.
PSN update: we are aware of the issues some users are experiencing, and are working to address them. We'll keep you updated.-- PlayStation (@PlayStation) December 8, 2014
