Sony PSN: To be Fully Restored This Week

Written on July 05, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Another announcement is coming from Sony: The PlayStation will be completely restored starting Wednesday.

Sony’s PlayStation Network will end its 11-week outage, as its service comes in full restoration in Japan this Wednesday. Last April 20, Sony PSN and Qriocity encountered a cyber attack, which compromised 77 million users’ private information and cost the company almost $70 million.

The company previously announced deadlines for recovery, including the April 21 statement that it can be a day or two before PlayStation Network gets fully restored. Sony Executive Deputy President, Kazuo Hirai, promised the services’ restoration by the end of the week on May 1. Then on May 14, Sony announced the first phase of PSN’s resumption. The latest announcement was made on May 30, wherein the company promised a full restoration by the end of the week.

However, the Sony PlayStation Network subscribers can only hope that this will be the company’s final announcement of complete restoration. In addition to this, the Welcome Back program was also extended until 12:00 pm today.

Sony Disputes Report About May 31 Deadline for PSN Restoration

Written on May 10, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Sony has informed the poeple that Bloomberg's wording, which was the foundation of this story, is inaccurate and the May 31 deadline does not exist.

After an announcement that Sony will be partially putting the PlayStation Network back online last week, it seems that nothing really happened. The past seven days just came and went, and the PSN services are still down. So when will Sony bring back the PSN online? The answer still hangs up in the air.

As of today, the company still doesn’t have a concrete timetable as to when its services will be back online. However, Sony spokesperson – Shigenori Yoshida – said that everything should be restored by the end of this month. Bloomberg even added that the company has set May 31 as the deadline to restore all PSN services.

But Sony disputed Bloomberg’s statement, and cleared out that the May 31 deadline is inaccurate and does not exist. The company doesn’t seem to established any deadline for the restoration of PSN, so the people still have to wait until appropriate security measures are in place.
