The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network have took their knocks throughout those dark few weeks of downtime but it appears that Sony can now look back on it without such a heavy heart.
The official PlayStation forums are currently down for maintenance and the downtime message strikes a lighter tone with fans.
“The PlayStation Community is down for maintenance. Very important
maintenance. It’s not like someone got overenthusiastic with a
PlayStationMove and knocked out the servers. Not at all. Where did you get that idea? We’re maintaining things.”
