Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications and Social Media of Sony, announced today in his blog post that the Playstation Network and Qriocity systems should be back online by next week. Although he also stated that only “some” services will be restored next week, it is good to see some progress on their efforts to restore the downed system.
With nearly a week offline, this is good news to Playstation users. After the security breach and possible theft of identities, it is likely that there will be new additions to the services offered by the Playstation Network. The only question is, how many users will find it safe to have an account with PSN after such a catastrophic intrusion to their systems?
I have included Patrick’s blog post below.
These malicious actions have also had an impact on your ability to enjoy the services provided by PlayStation Network and Qriocity including online gaming and online access to music, movies, sports and TV shows. We have a clear path to have PlayStation Network and Qriocity systems back online, and expect to restore some services within a week.
We’re working day and night to ensure it is done as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and feedback.
