So far we have seen a few different reactions to the fact that Sony’s PSN has been down since the evening of Wednesday April 20th the general comments that we have seen are mainly frustration at not being able to play your favorite games over the Easter weekend which is understandable but there’s a much more conservative approach taken by those commenting on the PlayStation blog.
We have already informed you that the unfortunately the network went down on the release day of Mortal Kombat 9, that there are regular updates coming from the PlayStation blog, how Sony are having to completely rebuild the infrastructure also how people are talking about a possibility of a paid secure option. Now we can report that for the PSN outage there’s a new update where Sony say it will be online but still no ETA.
In fact the update from their Sr.Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media man Patrick Seybold who has provided all the updates says that it will be up but there are no available timescales. Many people have been criticizing Sony for their lack of communication but we have seen a few updates from them. Check out what he said word for word below.
Now there are a lot of other things that people are talking about such as being compensated for the downtime. Unfortunately regular users are not entitled to anything as in the warranty that the quality of the network isn’t covered. Some of the things we are wondering about are all those people who use PlayStation plus, a paid service that they are unable to access or people who pay-to-play DC Universe Online.
What do you think will happen here? When do you think the PSN will be back online? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
