PSN still not up, Sony no longer sure when it will be



8:00 AM on 05.07.2011

Last weekend, Sony told consumers that the PlayStation Network should be back up and running within a week. As you may have noticed, a week's gone by, and you still can't play Warhawk. Sony has therefore made a new announcement, stating that the PSN outage is back to "indefinite" status. 

"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," said Patrick Seybold. "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."

This has gotten so miserable that I don't even have a snarky, annoying retort. I just want to give Howard Stringer five bucks and a cup of coffee, and tell him everything's going to be alright.
