You gotta love how well Sony keeps in touch with its fans: Just minutes ago, Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media posted “an update” to their blog. The post literally says again that there is no update and asks for more patience.
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. We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
The PSN service was turned off on April 20th following massive breach in which over 75 million user accounts were compromised. The full functionality is not scheduled to be reinstated until at least May 31st. Sony does have some plans to compensate its PSN users, including free PSN access for a month and credit monitoring services, but various gaming companies like CAPCOM are starting to complain that the damage suffered during PSN outage is costing them millions. It is unclear if Sony will do anything about that.
