For some folks, that would be those who own PS3 'Phats', the PSN is having a lot of trouble and gaming online is an impossibility. And that's not all. Phat owners are reporting that trophies are disappearing and that some games are even not playable offline as an error message appears. The long and the short of it is that the whole thing might be linked to extensive work being done on the PSN website over the weekend.
Which is disturbing on a whole 'nother level. Offline games being affected by online work?
Sony is well aware of the issue and is "looking into it". Ugh.
