When it rains in Sony headquarters, it pours. Unfortunately, Sony's MMO and Facebook game-playing customers can no longer laugh at their unfortunate PlayStation 3 and PSP-owning pals. Sony Online Entertainment has shut down all services to both its massively multiplayer games and, more importantly for you, its Facebook games. Dungeon Overlord, Poxnora, Wildlife Refuge and several more SOE Facebook games are unavailable. According to Sony, the shut down was in response to an "issue that warrants enough concern" for it to take down the service immediately. For greater context, the issue was found during an investigation in response to the recent PlayStation Network disaster.
