OWCH! May 31st?! 41 days of downtime?
Here's the blurg from Bloomberg:
The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged, he said. Sony shut down the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services April 20 because of possible data theft by hackers.
The maker of PS consoles had planned to restart partial operations within a week after boosting the level of security system, the company said May 1.
Wow. I'm really at a loss here - 41 days of downtime? Even with the Welcome Back program, how on Earth will Sony recover from this? E3 starts on June 7th... is Sony honestly going to head into the belly of the beast with only a week of PSN uptime?!
