Online play against other PS3, PC, or Mac users is unavailable. Single-player and split-screen co-op play are still available.

Does the PS3 have anything like the Xbox 360's achievements, which sometimes require online connectivity to either get or record? – KatieK Apr 27 '11 at 18:39
PS3 does have "Trophies" - I think they're supposed to work when offline. – lilserf Apr 27 '11 at 18:47
Yes you can get them offline and they will sync with Sony server next time you're online. Just don't crash your PS3 HDD while Sony PSN is down... :) – LudoMC Apr 27 '11 at 19:29
I think I heard that if you didn't load Portal 2 to your PC before PSN went down, then you can't do it now until it's back up. – MBraedley Apr 28 '11 at 10:52
