Nope as of May 8th 2011 the Sony PlayStation Network is still down. With no real time frame or ETA of when the PlayStation Network will be back. We have been checking the PlayStation blog and all there is out there is info from May 6th .. You would figure they would be working over time on the issues that took the PlayStation Network down on April 19th.
Sony has missed the suggested time line of the end of the week. Due to a separate attack on the Sony Online Entertainment.
"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," Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold wrote on the official Playstation Blog. He offered no estimate of when service will be restored.
So with multiple security companies and the big "brains" at Sony .. They still can not figure out the "Extent of the attack"??
And to add salt to the wound ..
Technorati Tech reports:
"Hackers responded to Sony's handling of the recent PlayStation Network breach by following through on threats to hack the Sony website. Sony began removing more than 2,500 names and addresses that were posted to the website on May 8.
In turn, it appears as though the re-launch of PlayStation Network will be postponed as the gaming giant struggles to recover on week 3 of the outage."
Good Luck Sony We are all watching...
