NEWS | PlayStation Network to go back online on May 3rd (Updated)

I’m sure a lot of you are getting so thirsty in accessing the multiplayer features of your PS3s. Well, here’s a good news. According to the PlayStation Blog, the service will be up and running again starting on May 3rd. Believe it or not, this is official. Hackers of the PlayStation Network (if there really is, how many they are, and what they did with our accounts, we don’t have a clue) still have 3 days to celebrate their selfish masterpiece for hacking the service. Also, Sony promised that they’ll get revenge against them, for their money-sake, and for the PS3 users-sake. Oh God’s sake! Here’s what the news says:

Sony has confirmed that it hopes to restore some fuctionality to the PSN service by next Tuesday in a new statement on the PlayStation Blog.

“Our employees have been working day and night to restore operations as quickly as possible, and we expect to have some services up and running within a week from yesterday. However, we want to be very clear that we will only restore operations when we are confident that the network is secure.”

Dated April 27, the update posted by Patrick Seybold (Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media), would put the estimated return date for PSN services as May 3, meaning that the service will have been offline for two weeks.

Although which services will be coming back online next week is unclear, Sony has stated they are working on new security measures for the future, as well as seeking out those responsible for the breach, confirming they “are working closely with a recognized technology security firm in order to find those responsible for this criminal act, no matter where in the world they might be located.”

If you read it carefully, Sony stated that they’ve been working with a “recognized technology security firm”. That, we don’t know, and I bet it’s a top-secret-Sony thing.

The “project: system rebuild” is almost done, I believe. This crisis has led the service to a backlash. For 2 weeks of “NO PSN”, I bet this is considered to be a good news to PlayStation users. Hopefully, we can trust Sony to permanently secure our accounts forever. Oh, and don’t forget to think of a new password for your account(s), it is necessary to change password once the PSN service is up and running. Feel free to share this article. xoxo

EDIT: It seems like the article’s source, which is IGN, made a big mistake and players worldwide assumed that the service will be back exactly on the 3rd. According to a reliable source, Sony did not mention any exact date, instead, clarified that they only hinted that the service will comeback definitely starting on the 1st week of May 2011. Right now, May 5th, the time I’m writing this revision of this post, there are only a few days left for Sony to keep up with their promise. I, Mistercomputer, hope that it will all turn out well.

EDIT: I’ve seen a lot of people waiting and waiting and losing patience, so here you go, the latest from Sony Japan. 🙂

  1. THIS BULLSHIT IM WAITING SO LONG ALL I WANT DO IS PLAY MY GAME SONY SHOULD BE SMART FIX DAMN SHIT LOT PPL GOING WITH XBOX I HAVE 30 FRIENDS THEY ALL WANT WITH XBOX SONY ALL I WANT DO PLAY WITH MY CLAN WWE 2011

  2. Well I hate to be the one wit the bad news..But when I called Sony they told me that a 7 day week was not including weekends. Sp that rules out Tuesday as a date of restoration..I thought working around the clock ment weekends, but not on Sonys clock..So I would say Thursday. Then they said by region..So who knows what region is first bummer

  3. The day is not over. The PSN could still make its return today….the day it does come back, it will probably do so at a very late our of said day.

    I just bought a used ps 3, reset all the settings to my user account, configured it to my wireless network, and couldn’t understand why I was getting an error code when I tried to sign on to the PS network or stream netflix. Is this a common occurrence or did I just happen to run into some bad luck this week?

  5. Man there are some retarded PS3 users. Nobody wants to hear you rant on like little girls. Learn to type and take off the caps.

  6. ALL YOU ASS SHUT THE FUCK UP STOP CRYING YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY AND GUESS WHAT GO TO XBOX NO ONE GIVES A SHIT JUST WAIT YOU GUYS ARE JUST PLAIN DUMB ITS BEEN 2 WEEKS AND MORE GET YOUR ASS OUT SIDE AND LIVE “OH BUT WHAT IF IT COMES BACK ON” ALL YOU GUYS LOOK OUT SIDE IT LOOKS NICE GET OUT THERE I THINK NONE OF YOU HAVE ANY FRIENDS. (NOT EVERY ONE THAS WAITING THANK YOU FOR NOT CRYING LIKE A DUMB ASS LIKE SOME PEOPLE)

  7. I just talked to a few guys that i played call of duty with.. and they work full time jobs and dont get on call of duty alot. and and one of them got over 500 bucks withdrawn off his credit card.. and there are more people that have got money stolen off their credit card and didnt even know it. and once i told them the news thats when they found out they lost money. and my freind is gonna sue sony for this madness.. if thats the case and sony was to get sued they will still have playstation network down until the jury desides whether or not if sony will have to refund peoples money.. if that happens they could possibly go bankrupt and so that case there might not be any more playstation for us. this is a more serious problem then you guys think.

  12. It`s not a big deal that PSN is donw. The worst thing is that Sony lose money on this and the worst thing for all players is that they can`t play online. Is it really so bad to not play online?

    I really understand that you wanna play, but it`s not the life…

    Family and friends is life.

    Go out side and get some friends, then the waiting time goes so much faster then when it is up, you can nerd all you`r online games! ^^

    I`m joiking a bit. Playing can be social, specially when you play with somone! 🙂

    Remember to have you`r window open when you play, then you get some sun in ur face! 😛

    • I’ll tell you where i’ll be… I’ll be kicking ass on a fucking xbox, screaming ‘Fuck you Sony’… Its like now they’re using this whole fuck up as a playstation plus promotion…. They’ll give us a taste of playstation plus for a month, then they’ll take it away and say ‘ Pay us if you want more bitch’ :/ Im telling you man… there’s something suspect going on with Sony, this seem’s like a falseflag operation and now their working with the feds and the CIA of all fucking people… This is fucked up, FUCK.
