PlayStation has been hit by a denial-of-service attack in which hackers are believed to have claimed responsibility, according to technology magazine TechCrunch.

In a statement, Playstation said:

Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic.

Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.

We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible.
