According to the New York Times, the Sony Corporation’s PlayStation Network had connection problems for a fourth day since hackers attacked the video game network, and the company said on Sunday that service was gradually being restored.
The hacker activist group known as Lizard Squad has claimed responsibility for disrupting both the PlayStation Network and Microsoft Corporation’s Xbox Live on Christmas Day. Service was restored to Xbox Live on Friday.
“We are currently experiencing widespread network issues that are being addressed,” Sony said in a statement on PlayStation’s maintenance website.
Hours earlier, Catherine Jensen, vice president for consumer experience at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said on the PlayStation blog that the network was “back online.”
