Sony Says PlayStation Network Coming Back In ‘at least a few more days’

If you’ve been one of the people banging your head against the wall waiting for Sony to restore the PlayStation network so you can get on with your life (trust us, we know people who are doing exactly that), you’ve got more time to wait. On its PlayStation Network blog yesterday, Sony gave an official statement on when the PlayStation Network will be back online.

Sadly, the answer wasn’t “right now.” Instead, the answer is that the network won’t be restored for “at least a few more days.” I’m sure you recall that both the PSN and Sony’s Qriocity networks suffered a major security breach recently where hackers reportedly stole 12.3 million credit card numbers and compromised personal data from 101 million accounts. Awesome, right?

“I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored,” Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media Patrick Seybold wrote on Sony’s PSN blog. ”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.”

Sure we will. I can hear cash registers all over the world ringing right now with sales of brand new XBox 360’s.

Sony better hurry, get the network back up and running and make this right with users or soon nobody will care and will have switched to XBox 360 and XBox Live.

That is, if they haven’t already.

    Here is one fact you Sony defenders will not get. Some of us work and have money, I can afford an X-box 360 and will probably buy one anyway. Next generation I can stick to Microsoft and tell Sony to suck it. Don’t assume we are all stuck with one or the other.

    • ps3 wiz

    Finally! but Sony is working around the clock to make everything the way it was. No hard feelings for you Sony. Everyone is going to be getting free playstation plus membership for a month or so and a couple free games. I didn’t really care about this at all I just wish i could have been able to link my Steam and Playstation accounts so i could get Portal 2 for Steam for free! Just for linking accounts! Just wait for PSN to get back who cares?! Why would you go buy an xbox go get Steam its free and the games are way better. Btw… this is coming from a guy who has a Gaming Rig, PS3, Xbox 360, ect.. Sorry to interrupt the console war but PC’s have always been a step ahead of consoles. Graphics and Ability to really do anything. For example garry’s mod if you have never heard of it before or played it go try it. Your doing yourself a disservice to society if you don’t try it.

    Really guys. Instead of blowing your money on a new system, why not stop fretting over PSN being down and go outside, see a movie, or just keep sitting with your thumb up your asses.I too check it every other day or so, but I just say a “Come on!” and go and do something else :l

Maybe you guys dont even deserve it… My feelings are the ps3 is the BEST SYSTEM to own i mean come on xbox cant play blu ray nor can the wii hell wii cant play dvds for that matter. PSN is free! But what i am trying to say its not technically sonys fault that they have to rebuild their infrastructure. IT WASNT PLANNED SO ALL OF YOU HATERs BE PATIENT AND ALL THE ONES OUT THERE THAT SAY THEY SOLD THEIR SYSTEM OR WILL SELL IT CHEAP YOU ALL ARE FULL OF CRAP! End of rant!

      Do you know what’s ‘rich’ Aboo? The fact that you have no faith in a company who are just having a number of problems right now but when they do bring back psn, let me tell you it will be Epic to make up for the 3week+ period of time psn has been down. You want to miss out on free ps plus, 2 free games, etc? Fine. Go for it. And the jokes on you mate for selling 3 Ps3’s for $50? I mean cmon

  • Darkguardian1314
    May 11, 2011 at 9:20 pm

  • Darkguardian1314
    May 11, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    Just make the network open and take all the personal data off. The point is to get players online quickly even with a temp username. Sure your scores and achievements won’t count unless there’s a way to have the console keep track. Sony needs to forget about making money, payments, and plus accounts right now. You don’t need a credit card to get a game of Black Ops in. This is all temporary and will give Sony time to rebuild the network and not do a rush job. Open the network to all Sony products.

    your mom… and Pride… PSN is free, therefore you have saved a lot of money that would have been out the window. The way I see it is that I get what I pay for (nothing) and to me so what if PSN goes down for a month or more, I never had to pay for it.

    Come on Playstation I will be investing with an Xbox 360. Its cheaper to buy plus they are quite better off. Hurry the hell up. I will give you only one more week and my PS3 will be on craigslist really cheap.

    • Hallstrom007
      May 11, 2011 at 9:23 pm

      haha dude the Xbox 360 is not cheaper. not only does the console cost the same as the ps3, but you have to buy the memory card for it. in the end the Xbox console and memory becomes about 75 dollars more. furthermore, if you want to play online then u have to pay for Xbox live. then you will have this over-hanging cost over your head for as long as you are subscribed to the Xbox program. Think about it before you waste your money. i too am frustrated with this hole playstation thing. but lets be patient it will eventually be back online and life will continue. so just chill man.

        I’m an old schooled dating back from the Atari days and i must say that PlayStation is one of the best system out there in the market now. Without a doubt Sony rules, as they change the whole franchise in gaming. i am a Sony fan, however i do have a collection of all the system and currently register with Xbox live. I must give credit to MS Xbox. For the reason being Sony had to come out with PS3 (Blu-ray, faster processor etc. etc…) in order to keep up with Xbox.

        Microsoft hasn’t even started to evolve their system yet, imagined what will have when they do come out with something like a Xbox 720, what would you say then? Better processor, blu ray rewriter, 3d gaming come on you get the point. Sony will once again have to upgrade to what? A PS4 you’ll have to send another 500 bucks just to stay update…it’s a rat race. So be thankful for the free service and if you got money then get an Xbox and pay for your services. You pay for what you get. It’s all about the service so be patient.

      • Hallstrom007
        May 12, 2011 at 2:07 am

        agreed! ive heard about the new Xbox. don’t think that im not giving Xbox any credit. they have a good thing going for them and they have been very successful. Exactly what you said, you get what you pay for. with xbox you might get a more reliable online service. but is it really worth the monthly/yearly fee? doubt it. Ps is on a role with their products. this is just a set back. eventually im sure the xbox network will be hacked also. it is just a matter of time. so i wouldn’t say that changing to an xbox would solve all problems. eventually it will happen. ps is on top of their game. selling an equal product for a lesser price. of course Xbox needs to make a new system. they just need to get their name back out to the public so that they can make more profit than Playstation. i guess we just have to wait for the result.

I wanna know why people saying xbox is better then sony cause of this do you xbox people remember in 07 or 08 your servers crashed for about 3 weeks cause too many people on your servers?

      May 11, 2011 at 9:28 pm

      Ya that may be true but at least it was a over function error it wasn’t a bunch hackers that crashed through “The best network security” And yes the older models did melt and yes they were and are pieces of sh!t. But the new gens do not there are more in sentients of the orange light than there is the red ring. Don’t get me wrong while I had my PS3 and PSN i loved it and it was really quick and smooth. But I’d rather pay $60 for a year and know my personal info is secure.

    • Ray Steele
      May 11, 2011 at 9:53 pm

We all paid good money for our gaming systems. We have the right to use it any way we see fit. All us PSN users have a little string tied around our sacks that Sony tugs on with every forced update! If we dont accept the ever changing terms and conditions your PS3 will make a great paper weight, unless you girls like playing alone. Is far as the attacks on Sony “this is not the First and is far from the Last”
