Sony update on PSN status: a few more days
Sony has posted an update on its PlayStation blog regarding the near three-week long PSN outage. While it cannot give an exact date for when access to the network will be returned, an apologetic Sony says it will "likely be at least a few more days." The security breach potentially exposed the private information or more than 100 million user accounts.
Whenever the network goes back online, Sony will have consequences to deal with, including a class-action lawsuit. The company has mentioned it may reward users for their patience by giving them free month of access to their PlayStation Plus paid subscription service, along with free ID theft monitoring and free access to extra content.
