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.

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.

I've played Need For Speed Rivals on PS3 & it doesn't allow 2 players on one console. Most games on Playstation 3 & 4 only have online multiplayer which is the most popular on those consoles. Same thing with Xbox. The Wii & Wii U will let you play multiplayer games with more than one person on the same console & i don't think they have online multiplayer.

Just got back an hour ago from a day-long outing with the kids. I seem to have full PSN access now, but am not sure how long it's been up.

Maybe that's how that all talk? They are foreigners also.
That said, I don't know how a hacker group could stop a DDoS attack.

When PS4 access resumed long after PS3 did, the service seemed quite solid. It wasn't intermittent so I'm glad for that. Generally when PSN comes back after being offline the service is flaky. This time it was like they all the servers and hardware fully operational before opening front the door.

I still have not been able to log on but I just did a little research and now I'm on. Everyone kept saying to reset the router but for me, that didn't work.

If you still can't get on:

Go to Settings>Network>Setup Internet Connection
And choose "Manual". When you see the setting for "MTU" change it from 1500 to 1473.

Don't know why it works, but it did.

Change it back to default once your good though. I'm not sure why that would make any difference unless setting it cleared some cache somewhere. I've also read that spamming the connect button and setting your connection back up in settings works.
