Another update has been posted on the official PlayStation blog page.
The latest from Sony is that they still can’t give us an exact date of when PSN will be live again, but it will “likely be at least a few more days”.
This was posted yesterday, so a few more days would put us at the weekend. But the phrase “at least” is a worrying qualifier – meaning that potentially there are further pitfalls in store which could delay the PSN coming back online until next week.
Sony follows with an apology: “We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.”
But tempers are definitely starting to fray – witness the 80 plus comments on last week’s story where we reported the network wasn’t going to be back up last weekend as promised. This time around, Sony isn’t making any promises…
It’s three weeks now since the hacking incident, and if the downtime is extended to next week, we’re looking at a month effectively for PS3 owners with no online play.
