"Hacked" is perhaps a bit of a strong phrase. It makes it sound like it was a deliberate attempt to sabotage the network, when the current working theory is a bit more -
Sony has more than one PSN. They have a couple of other networks used for internal testing, they have names like prod and np. Microsoft is the same, they have Xbox Live and "PartnerNET", an Xbox-live for dev consoles as it were. Anyhoo, If you have a Debug/TEST PS3, that's what network you get on, not PSN. With all the jailbreak and CFW stuff going on, it's actually pretty easy to get a retail PS3 to log onto one of these other networks. It's nothing new and something that was possible last year, I think it was even possible with the "PSJAILBREAK" dongle, but I'm not 100%.
Anyway, it was largely pointless because it wasn't "real" PSN, you couldn't play games on it, etc. so most people just left it alone.
So then CFW came along and people went mad on PSN. Eventually Sony stopped them getting online. A workaround was found and Sony patched that and there was a bit of cat-and-mouse going on. Eventually Sony properly cut off PSN from all CFW users. All they had left was these non-production networks to connect to. Not much use. However, someone DID find a way to connect to the REAL game servers while on the non-production PSN, a kind-of weird hybrid PSN. Word about this spread far and quick and a week or two later, suddenly Sony pulls down PSN due to an "Intrusion". Sounds to me like they've noticed their private networks were getting flooded by modded consoles and panicked.
Makes sense according to that comment.
I dont understand how it takes 3 days to fix it though? They have to be losing MAD money.
