"Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic," Sid Shuman wrote on Sony's official blog.
"Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed. We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused."
Initially, the two separate groups claimed the responsibility of the attack, but FAMEGod, the same member of Anonymous group who was behind famous "2011 PSN Outage," revealed the IPs addresses of Lizard Squad members as a proof that he was behind it.
FameGod threatened to attack Microsoft Corp's Xbox Live network as his next Hacking Project under codename "Project Micro" and added, "See atleast Xbox and Microsoft are smart and dont operate on one datacenter. Sony your f**king aids."
Some users said they had problems accessing Xbox Live network on Sunday, but Xbox spokesman David Dennis told Reuters, "We don't comment on the root cause of a specific issue, but as you can see on Xbox.com/status, the core Xbox LIVE services are up and running".
