    When Bloomberg reported PlayStation Network might be down until May 31, Sony contacted outlets, assuring the end-of-May deadline was not correct. What Sony cannot provide to counter speculation, however, is an accurate date of when PSN will be back. As of this morning, nothing has changed.

    "I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored," updated Sony senior director of corporate communications and social media Patrick Seybold on the PlayStation Blog.

    "At this time, I can’t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more day," he continued. "We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process."

    A few more days would make PSN's outage a three-week affair. PSN was expected to come back online in some form late last week, but additional internal testing was reportedly needed, Sony explained on Friday. The company has avoided specific timetables for PSN's return, given the fluidity of finalizing security.

    Patience is beginning to run thin, however, with third-parties like Capcom publicly criticizing Sony.

    "As an executive responsible for running a business," said Capcom VP Christian Svensson, "the resulting outage obviously costing us hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in revenue that were planned for within our budget. These are funds we rely on to bring new games to market for our fans."

    yup my patience is running thin as well. i have back to the future ep 3 waiting to be downloaded and played! not to mention when i get LA Noire id like some online connection to link my social club account. its not sony's fault though, if they end up bringing PSN live again and its still broken....then shit will hit the fan at 300mph.

    Well, it's better than "A few more weeks".

    Glad to see it's going to be coming back that soon, anyway.

    The only thing I can take from this? Sony has started talking a little bit more. But still, at least it appears they are SORTING it out rather than leaving it as it is.

    I also game a lot on the PC, but I miss playing MAG, which I did every day after work before the PSN fell.

    Well even though it's a total bummer, I'd rather see them take their time, than missing a hole in the security.

    The sooner the better.

    I wonder if Sony will shoot themselves in the foot again and go "There. We're done and more secure than ever! No one can touch your data now", effectively spiting more hackers to try.

    Anyone in computer security knows that "secure" is a very loose term and a new system will inherently be untested in the wild and thus insecure. It wouldn't surprise me if they get hacked numerous times in the future, but I'll be happy if they kept my credit card information safe and didn't have to rebuild the whole thing next time.

    Loving all the the coverage so far - say, are news sites gonna pick up on the courts praising Sony for its handling of the situation after they filed the info requested and what not? that happened a lot earlier today than this announcement made it out.

    We might, maybe, perhaps, some day in the near future, with relative quickness, upon the completion of our testing, in a few days, think about re-establishing PSN in SOME capacity... maybe.

    maybe we should start a poll of when you think it will come back.  I would guess that it comes back up this friday 13th, but is than back down within a week.

     

    for people who want to know why they can't give an exact date, it's cuase they don't know.  If it were fixed it would be back up, but it's broke.  once it's fixed they probably run a final test and make it live, so there will never be time for an anouncment.

     

    i.e. sony vp

    And to think they're still pushing the online part of the PS3 sponsorship ads on TV. You could probably do them for inaccurate advertising or something.

    Man, that's just wrong. I Seriously hope things will get back up and running again. I want to believe all this time is for a better and safer PSN but does it take that long to build a new security system?
