Sony has announced that there will be no PlayStation Network service til the end of May now.
According to CVG:
Speaking to Bloomberg over the phone, PlayStation Tokyo spokesperson Shigenori Yoshida said Sony was still “uncertain” when it can resume the full suite of PSN services, including music service Qriocity.
He added that the plan to be back online by May 31 was “unchanged” – although his comment comes after Sony said it wanted to restart a partial PSN service by the end of last week.
Spokesperson Nick Caplin has since clarified:
“When we held the press conference in Japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week,”
“We were unaware of the extent of the attack on Sony Online Entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of the incredibly complex system.”
So, no PSN til May 31? Let us know what you’re going to be doing waiting for PSN to return.
