Important Step for Service Restoration

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on May 05, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

Today our global network and security teams at Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment began the final stages of internal testing of the new system, an important step towards restoring PlayStation Network and Qriocity services.

As previously mentioned, we’ve been working around the clock to rebuild the network and enhance protections of your personal data. It’s our top priority to ensure your data is safe when you begin using the services again.

We understand that many of you are eager to again enjoy the PlayStation Network and Qriocity entertainment services that you love, so we wanted you to be aware of this milestone and our progress. We will provide additional updates as soon as we can.

So…maybe tomorrow? Saturday?

At this point I don’t expect it, but I think what everyone was hoping for was a post more like this: “IF everything goes right, PSN ought to be available at X. Unexpected delays are still possible as we test the system and verify it is ready, so please be patient.”

Still, at least we know it’s getting closer!

Don’t care about these posts. I just want PSN & PS Store up.

Anyway, just read an article on Joystiq that apparently the PSN was running on outdated software and Sony had no firewall in place.

Tomorrow… PLEASE!!

+ yazter on May 5th, 2011 at 4:39 pm said:

Not even tomorrow — NOW!

Please re-read your statements, there was no ‘expecting’ or ‘probably’. It said it would be online this week.

Tomorrow at the latest.

Any ETA?

I heard a conspiracy theory that Sony was using Anonymous scape goat for a network failure due to lack of maintenance. I don’t really believe it though :P
But i do like a good conspiracy :P

Yay! I just hope that it goes back up before the weekend, I don’t think I can take another one without PSN.

yay

+ BlueFrog007 on May 5th, 2011 at 4:48 pm said:

I realize everyone wants PSN back up, but seriously, it’ll be up when it’s up. Obviously they are working as fast as they can, but they have a lot of stuff to get through before we can log on. Don’t forget, it’s not just getting PSN back up, it’s also getting the firmware update finished.

+ IGlowInTheDark on May 5th, 2011 at 4:51 pm said:

Wow, I’m impressed. Considering the original network must have been tested for years (two at least I’m assuming) before going live.

I hope you guys are paying your QA guys well for all the crunching their doing.

I just want you to know, I have found out the name of anonymous’ leader, yes they have a main person leading them and influencing their actions. You can have that info for $50,000 CDN. Considering you wont listen to free info.

Also it seems as though someone is posting here as me. If you check that Canadian lawsuit you will only find that chicks name on it.

I have a feeling someone from my school is using the pc I used to use to read this during break time to make comments that I am not too happy about.

If indeed that is the case, I will be suing them and only them for Identity Theft.

Soon eta guys? Friday? Monday? June 1st?

+ fleinn on May 5th, 2011 at 5:02 pm said:

So.. I wonder how many new clauses in the user-ageement we have to “agree” to when we get online again?

“I accept that my data will be randomly sent to anyone, for any reason. If you do not agree to this term, please do not use the playstation network. Thank you”.

..am I far off?

I want to know the leaders name, I want to google the crap out of him, and then send him a mildly rude email saying I don’t like his stupid ideals or the way he “helped consumers”.
