PSN is down and no one can buy anything or play online games. Sony has been telling us to wait constantly for the past few weeks and pushing back dates over and over. It looks like they have finally just given up on specific dates, but they are saying that it should take a couple more days. Which is what they said the time before and the time before. If you don’t know about the current issue over at Sony, they were hacked by an unknown group and had a lot of their networks security compromised. Information such as names and passwords are confirmed stolen, but they continue to say that they aren’t sure any credit card info was gotten.
The first aspect of PSN that will be coming back up will be online games and to compensate for the wait Sony is going to be offering 2 free games off of PSN from a list of 5 and to PSP users another 2 free PSP games off of PSN from a list of 4. We can only assume that these games will be first party Sony releases most likely, but not much more than that. You can read the full quote here as well “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.”.
