On Christmas day it was another hack for Sony. Its PlayStation network remained down. The same also happened to Microsoft’s Xbox Live gaming network, but it got restored on Friday.
Both the tech giants took to Twitter in informing its users that they are working in restoring their services on the gaming networks.
One Twitter user with user name Lizard Squad took the credit for both the hacks.
Earlier Sony’s emails were hacked and it was much publicized and blamed on North Korea by United States. However, the studio says the recent attack is of a more amateur nature.
The email hackers had threatened the US against release of the movie The Interview, which was also initially cancelled by Sony from release but later it announced to be screening in limited theaters on Christmas Day and launch it on YouTube.
