PSN Outage - day 9

Sony has posted a second FAQ regarding this outage. Here are the key Questions and Answers:

Q: Will our download history/friends list/settings be affected by the PSN downtime?
A: No, they will not.

Q: Will trophies that were earned in single-player offline games during the outage be intact when the service resumes?
A: These trophies are intact and will be re-synched when the network is once again operational.

Q: Will my PS+ cloud saves be retrievable?
A: Yes, once PSN is restored.

Then there is this one:

Q: Will there be a goodwill gesture for the time we haven’t been able to utilize PSN/Qriocity?
A: We are currently evaluating ways to show appreciation for your extraordinary patience as we work to get these services back online.

As per prior SCEA updates, we shouldn't really expect PSN to be up at all at least until next Wednesday (so 2 weeks of down time, total). Now, I don't mean to sound greedy, but a full blown digitally distributed PS3 greatest hits title would probably go a LONG way towards rebuilding the relationship with PS3 gamers. I won't get my hopes up on that however. A full PSN game might be more along what SCEA is thinking...
