Just days after declaring that they were completely independent from the PlayStation Network saga, Sony Online Entertainment has taken down its servers with immediate effect due to an intrusion.
A message was posted on SoE's maintenance page which reads: "We have had to take the SOE service down temporarily. In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday).
This is the last thing Sony would have wanted, as it looked as though they had turned a corner with this whole affair. We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear something.
