UPDATE: “I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can’t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.” – source: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/05/10/psn-restoration-timeline-update/
Yesterday brought another potential rumor to a tangible service restoration date to the table. Bloombe reporter Mariko Yasu apparently quoted Sony spokeperson Shigenori Yoshida as saying “the company [Sony] is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31  is unchanged.” All of this information was apparently confirmed to Bloomberg by phone yesterday to Mariko Yasu.
However, readers of this blog brought to my attention that the above statements may be inaccurate. According to several blog posts around the internet, Sony informed users that the May 31 deadline did not exist. Read examples of these statements at:
The reports on the above referenced websites cannot be confirmed by Sony at this time. In typical Sony fashion, they have been silent on their blogs and other outlets. Sony Online Entertainment has also been silent, reporting last 15 hours ago on their Facebook Wall.
UPDATE: Sony Online Entertainment posted that they will not be operational today – 1234PST.
Anonymous also posted a video to PSN users late Monday (May 9) in response to the outage and hacking allegations.
