We always like to keep you up-to-date with what is going on with Sony, but Fukuoka shocks PS3 users with estimate for PSN back up. The company aims to get the PlayStation Network fully restored by the end of May; although other sources believe that it could be later. The service is still currently shut down, but it was recently reported that is was back up internally.
We already know that 24.6 million users had their personal details stolen by hackers, but AP reports that Satoshi Fukuoka from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. has announced that we might have to add another 77 million to that list. This is certainly a huge blow for the company, one that will no doubt affect PS3 sales.
While there are those who do not seem too upset with Sony and how long it is taking them to get PSN back up online, there are more who are. They believe that Sony has made a complete mess of things from the start; one because they should have informed us sooner, and two because it is taking far too long for them to get PlayStation 3 users back to online gaming.
Sony Corparation CEO issued a letter of apology before the weekend, and said that PSN should be up within days; well those days are certainly piling up. It just seems strange to us why Sony cannot be up front and keep updated as to the situation; we say this because the last update was back on May 6th, we are now on the 10th.
Do you think that Sony is playing games with us – sorry for the pun?
