As all of you know, PSN users all over the world not only have been completely unable to sign in to the PS3’s free online service but have their data (probably including card information) compromised by a data breach allegedly performed by the Anonymous organization.
I know Sony’s reputation has become shattered at best these day, but still, they seem to firmly believe they can get PSN back online (at least some of its services) this week, according to Sony EU’s Community Team Leader Musterbuster. The guy in question states:
I would love to be able to give you new information, and right now there isn’t any available.
I’m asking lots of questions but at the moment all I’m being told is that the “last update still stands” eg – Some PlayStation Network services will be restored this week.
The very second I hear anything new, it will be passed on to you. I’m also keeping a note of your feedback throughout this outage, so keep posting it.
It’s worth noting that at this point, anything could happen. I mean, a giant corporation has got one of its flagship products hacked and has a potentially unhappy 70 million users ready to sue the company, but I sincerely hope everything ends up happily; the main victims of these situations are primarily the gamers, and they deserve a lot better.
