UPDATE: Articles posted throughout the day by major media outlets has repeatedly stated that Mariko Yasu mis-quoted the Sony representative by using the May 31, 2011 deadline. No confirmation from Sony exists either way.

After a long 3 weeks of outages for the PlayStation Network (PSN) and Qriocity services, Sony spokeperson Shigenori Yoshida confirmed today that “the company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 [2011] is unchanged.” Additionally, he stated that “Sony is uncertain when it can resume the services.” All of this information was confirmed to Bloomberg by phone today to Mariko Yasu. Expect that Sony Online Entertainment will also be unavailable until this time.

Sony had loosely stated a goal of May 3 for partial service restoration. However, that time past without relief for gamers. With the new data of May 31, 2011 as a marker for complete services restoration, I wonder how many gamers will abandon the PlayStation Network in favor of Microsoft’s XBox?

Have you already made the transition to XBox? Leave a comment below and let us know.
