PlayStation Network to stay down for "at least a few more days"

PlayStation Network

It’s been about three weeks since the PlayStation Network security breach, and gamers are still unable to access the online service. Now it looks like PSN won’t be restored within the next few days either.

Patrick Seybold, Sony’s senior director of Corporate Communications & Social Media, took to the PlayStation Blog to briefly update gamers on the current state of the PSN restoration.

"I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored," he said. "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."

Many expected some PSN features to be restored last week, but Sony had to delay that in order to do "additional comprehensive system checks and testing." The long wait is unfortunate, but obviously ensuring the security of the new system is of the utmost importance.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
