PlayStation Network Still Down; Sony Seeks a Week’s Time

May 11, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Wonder what’s up at Sony! Even after days have passed hackers sneaked into their online PlayStation Network, services continue to be affected. Though gamers the world over have been expecting a speedy resolution of issues, that was not coming about as they all had thought. Sony Corp has now come up with a blog post that states that it would take at least “a few more days” to restore service to the online PlayStation Network.

As all you gaming enthusiasts are aware, the online gaming service got paralyzed by hacker attack on April 19. It was found that personal information of more than 100 million users was breached. Sony also expressed concern over the probability of around 12.3 million credit-card numbers stolen during the hacking!

With Sony now coming out with a statement, we guess we will have to stay waiting for more to log on again and play. Going by what Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold says:

“I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can’t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days.”

So that means we really will need to wait. What if PSN refuses to be back soon? May be Sony will have to find an answer to that.  Let us hope to see PlayStation Network get online again in a week’s time, or else Sony would have to put up with the fact that they couldn’t do troubleshooting effectively for as long as a month’s time. A shutdown that extends from April 19th to May 20th – that’s a month – would be a shameful affair. We just hope Sony does something – fast!
