"After seven days of silence from Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, they have finally updated the Japanese Playstation Blog, to let us know what is going on." - TheStonedSheep
'As you know in the press release dated January 5' wait wut?
It's been translated via Google, please tolerate the Engrish, check below for the gist of it.
Google translate leaves a lot to be desired. Japan does dates different from North America and Europe, the month is listed first, then the day, then year. Google confused 5/1/2011 (May 1st 2011) for 1/5/2011 (January 5th, 2011).
So basicly no new info -_________- Let me see the things i could do in seven days I could not make update articles that contain no new info. I could not read said article. I you could make more interesting article instead of feeding into the hyperbowl, ESPECIALLY IF IT HAS NO NEW INFO!! -Seven Dayz that is the amount of time it will take Tman to rule the world. Das Fuhre. -All Hail Tman
Where there is demand, there will be supply.
God damnit, are you kidding me? Still nothing? Man, they're going to have to up the rewards that they give people when it's back online.
Some people are so greedy!
Why should they up the rewards?.. The stuff you're already getting free probably covers the cost of what you or atleast most people(because im sure if i said just you, you'd claim i was wrong)spend in the ps store in a year..
Sony were hacked, could have happened to any company, they were just unfortunate with the geo hot lawsuit etc.
Infact there has already been worse data breaches from bigger companies.
You should cut sony some slack for having to handle this. Rebuilding the network, brand new servers, hiring experts of security to test the whole new network, answering to governments, working with the fbi, providing feedback, recieving onslaughts of spam with people saying things like "zomg we wantz free thingz" developing a welcome back program, providing the new anti id theft service for all users.. on top of that the constant media coverage putting a bad mark on them as well as stocks falling.
That's a huge amount of things they've had to cover in pretty much 2 weeks(as they didn't know the full extent until 6 days after).
Be happy with what you're going to recieve, be happy that they're working hard to get the service you enjoy back online.
Personally, I don't need ANYTHING---But---I would like PSN to be up AS SOON AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. To be down until May 31st is ridiculous.
Reads like it's just saying the old reports were false, they're still working on strengthening their system. PSN isn't up anywhere just yet.
apparently the 3rd atk, the 2001 contest info, came from a japanese source who posted the info. This is a global hacker attack on sony! even by their own people!
Oh, PSN...what are we going to do with you?
we r gonna wait.and wait,and wait.then when it pops up everyone will be happy again.woot woot.im gonna be playin socom 4.
I don't think they're gonna do a whole "lol surprise guise!!1" and just open it one morning. That seems kinda reckless, imo. Then again, if you announce it ahead of time it's kinda like just letting hackers get ready. Hmm.
If they told people though you'd get a huge inflix of traffic and crash PSN one more.
Yeah I almost feel like they won't be able to announce the date and time it'll be back up because it may very well crash the servers with all the incoming traffic. And at this point where it may be 3 weeks by the time it is actually back up, I'm sure missing out on a few hours of PSN by not knowing it was back up will be fine.
i heard from an inside source that it will be up around May 13th-14th but you didnt hear it from me
I'm sure your source is completely unreliable, if you're being serious. At this point if Sony knew when it would be back up, they would tell us, but obviously because of how sure they want to be of the new security they have implemented they are still testing, and unsure of a date.
how much longer are we willing to wait give psn users there online back every day it stays down makes sony loose face and its doing damage to there company. i might not be mr technical but how long dus this take i want a strait answer and a date
r we getting another reward for this O_o
