So if LizardSquad is no longer attacking psn, according to their tweets from yesterday, then what is keeping the psn down?

Just checked on Twitter and it is lizard squad. Anonymous protection is fighting against them.

Really? They first tweeted that they were no longer going to attack XBL and PSN from there on out and later tweeted again that they wanted to clarify that they are no longer behind the attack and were focusing their attention on Tor or something like that. O'well, hopes were up for nothing then.

Of course all of the really only matters when the systems go down and all that expertise is brought to bare trying to bring everything back up.

That's part of the point I was making. My PS4 is basically a brick while my son has been playing away on his xbox for pretty much the whole weekend without issue. Sony's ability to get back up and running doesn't inspire any confidence.

The other family friendly co-op game for PS4 worth checking out is the recently released LittleBigPlanet 3. In addition to the main story campaign, there are literally millions of user-created levels you can play together.
Great, thanks for your response. I have Little Big Planet as well so will check it out too.

My PS4 is fine. Played walking dead and COD campaign. Not sure why your son's PS4 is a brick.

I think he's referring to online play. If that's what you do mostly, then yeah right now it's a brick.

I act my age sometimes. Sometimes ;). Crap I say

Disney Infinity can be played by 2 people. We got that for my oldest daughter and have been playing it a bunch since Christmas.

My PS4 is not a brick but I can't access any network features, no friends list, no GTA Online, no Disney Infinity community content, no PSN Store. The attack has been over for almost 2 days now and it is still down. Guess their IT folks are still on Christmas vacations or they are waiting for the last week of the holiday sale to end before bring the network back up. That's my theory.

Maybe they are actually taking this time to increase security. Maybe they learned from it and btw some xbox users are still reporting outages.

In a ddos there isn't a security issue. It's a massive spike in traffic like a traffic jam. Basically all they did was shut the online part down by flooding it. I'm not sure you can stop a big enough spike be it legitimate Xmas traffic or some aholes blasting your network.
