    Sony is still going on fooling us by repeating the same info every few days, very obvious that they r stuck at somewhere.. but they are never true to update us.
    They are giving an update every 3 or 4 days which is telling nothing… only to redeem more time for them and keep us fooled….
    Please Sony, if u have nothing to say just dont mouthout with fake updates…
    either true useful updates or keep ignoring your customers…
    Even these rewards which Sony is talking about is nothing in fact, the frustration people got by this outage and the way sony dealt with us is priceless…
    We were always loyal to sony but the reaction we got this time was really surprising and disappointing.
