PSN not likely to go online on Sunday May 8

As you might already know Sony held a press conference last Sunday in which the second in command, Kaz Hirai, promised that the Playstation Network would be up and running within a week.

Well, we are very sorry to inform our readers that yesterday Sony's Patrick Seybold has posted in the official US Playstation Blog what looks to be another communication to let PSN users know that they are not going to meet the pre-determined deadline:

As you may know, we’ve begun the process of restoring the service through internal testing of the new system. We’re still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system. Verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.

As you’ve heard us say, our utmost priorities are the security of the network and ensuring your data is safe. We won’t restore the services until we can test the system’s strength in these respects.

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. We know many of you are wanting to play games online, chat with your friends and enjoy all of the services PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have to offer, and trust me when I say we’re doing everything we can to make it happen. We will update you with more information as soon as we have it. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience of this network outage.

Our conclusion to the post? Well, that tomorrow Sunday we will not have the PSN back online. They explain that there is a lot of testing that needs to be done, and so more time offline will be needed.

So there you go, folks, seems like no PSN for this weekend either. Even though it might be hard for some to deal with the lack of online play, we would like to think that whatever Sony is working on will end up creating a stronger network, so we will not have to go through this ever again.
