The game servers are from Little Big Planet and have been offline for a few days due to hackers. Media Molecule and Sony have been working for hours to fix the problems, but the overwhelming DDOS attack forced the development studio to put everything offline while waiting to find a definitive solution. The game servers, according to some, are under attack from some fans of the series who would be angry at Sony for how it is “treating” the game.
The Little Big Planet server problems have been going on for about two months. First they simply slowed down server response times, but progressively the situation deteriorated. Media Molecule was forced to take the gaming infrastructure offline while waiting to figure out how to move. And he asked the fans to be patient.
“LBP Server Update: Due to the severity of the recent attacks we have no choice but to temporarily disable the game servers. We do not take these attacks lightly, especially when they target members of our loyal community. Thanks for understanding.” reads on the official Twitter account .
According to what some fans reported to Eurogamer.net these attacks, at least initially, were started by a series of disgruntled Sony fans , guilty of having taken the site “www.LBP.me” offline last November for technical reasons, without never putting the portal back online.
Certainly not sufficient motivation to judge this kind of act.
