PSN Back Up Online In 3 Weeks, Justified?

May 9, 2022 | Maddy Rowe

The Sony PSN outage is enough to no doubt send many of you “over the edge” with news of when it will finally resume. Since the PlayStation Secure Network went down on Wednesday 20th April, we have heard nothing but if’s and but’s from Sony as to when the service will finally come back. Following on from the PSN being hacked and then personal information such as credit cards, names and addresses of users being subjected to being tampered with, people have been left with a “bad taste in their mouths.” Today news may change gamers minds even more, with a view to changing over to Xbox to get their gaming fix.

Reported from via, the news is bleak! Rumor is now indicating that gamers will have to wait until at the least the 31st May to have the service back up and running. This actually would tie in with a post we issued a week ago indicating the self same thing. have reported that the PSN has a target of “May 31” to come back online.

Just over a week ago, Sony held a conference giving its customers a huge apology for the downtime, news of a “Welcome Back” campaign along with suggestion that they were indeed trying to fix the problem(s) with a view to resuming the service within the following week. Unfortunately that time has been and gone and if the news does end up with some truth in it, many of you will be saying a “few choice words.” Take a look at some of the other posts we gave you the weekend.

We told you that Sony is looking to entice customers with a new “debix” protection data service which is free until June, and just last night we told you that rumor has it, Sony may be retailing a PS3 Call of Duty: Black Ops package for $299.99 to entice customers to come back to them.

Are you ready to jump ship now? Have you had more than enough or are you prepared to wait? The big question is of the timescale customers have had to wait, is it justified? Let us know your thoughts.

  • simon

    im annoyed its taking so long but im happy there not rushing it and there making sure that it is fully secure. it is irritating not being able to play with my friends on my ps3 but cmon people there are other thing to do , to all those people claiming sony have ruined there easter holidays i say "get a life" try going outside for a change you might enjoy it.

  • Jeff

    I think its bull. If i have to wait 1 1/2 Months to play games i bought for online play i would probably buy a xbox. I would play both when sony got their shit together. Really 1 1/2 months to fix a sercurity issuse is just insane. Quit screwing around and get the stuff back online and do daily or weekly updates to fix w/e they think might need a improvement. That way hackers would have to constantly recode or redo much of their work based on new programing down to the software. I honestly dont want to wait until June to play my online games. I have been a fan on Sony PS since the PS one.

  • hustla_uk

    i think sony has treated us psn users really bad with all its misleading info.even the head guys in japan bowed down in apology and said psn will be bk on in next week.
    well that was a lie to,if we cant believe what there head guys are telling us.then what are we to believe from them.

  • shaun

    may 31st as long as its back by june 13th il be happy as il be recovering from surgery and will have nothing to do for 12 weeks.

  • Carstien

    I'll wait, why should i jump ship just to play online when my fave games are ps3 exclusives such as metal gear solid 4 and white knight chronicles…

  • Malik

  • i ate a bug

    how does retailing a new system for 299.99 entice existing customers to come back to them? you mean to lure witless new customers. in regards to debix, if PSN is to come back online by the end of the month, and debix is free until june, ….that gives us a whopping 0-30 days free info protection (subject to when they intend on ending the free subscription, june 1 or june 30) and is sony not responsible/obligated to keep our info protected? isnt this "maintanance" all about beefing up the system security?

  • Toxic Crow

    Shoot I'm thinking about it jumping ships. Them offering a protection plan just tells me this can happen again. I'm sorry but im giving Sony 1 more week.

  • Nigg.

    Well that was fun! Xbox, how about I go buy you today? Works ;)

  • marco

    playstation can go to hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dinga

    may 31st? well ill tell you what ill be doing on may 31st. Probably about to prestige for a 2nd or 3rd time on my new X Box. Yuck Fou sony. lazy A-holes.

  • Dan

    You guys are just weak. It's nearly Summer, go outside and get some fresh air. I'm as angry as the rest of you but I'd rather Sony take their time and create a safer environment for my personal information, that's more important than listening to whiny 12 year old crying because they're getting killed on Black Ops.

    I'll be keeping my PS3, catching up on some single player action and going outside to spend time with my friends,

  • Rob

    The XBOX has been down for longer before…but I guess people didn't moan about that…yeah right! Get a grip guys! Go out, or something? I dunno, watch DVD's…go to work, take someone out! There's more to life than gaming, and yes, I love gaming to!
    There's plenty things to do for now for you all, I'm sure.
    Sony may have said it'll be up then, it'll be up now etc. Yes that's annoying, but as long as it comes back safer than ever, don't complain…

  • DUDE

    bye sony gamestation here i come thn again they might of ran out of xbox lol

  • Chris

    I find it sad people are hopping ship to Microsoft Xbox 360. Can't you do it the old fashioned way and invite friends round?…

    At least we aren't losing any money through yearly subscriptions, imagine what XBL would be like.

  • Al Graham

    no way I'm jumping ship. Regardless of whether Sony have screwed over it's customers, their machine is still the best between them and the XBOX. Micro$haft must be rubbing their dirty little mits together listening to all the people saying they are going to bail.

    If Sony pull their finger out and sort these problems once and for all, then I'm willing to forgive and forget. I'll still tell my Grandkids about the 'Big Downtime or 2011' but I'll tell them how I enjoyed playing the Single Player parts of games, being out in the garden with the BBQ and seeing mates.

    Hmm giving a protection program just tells me that this will happen in the future. Im tired of waiting, Sony you let me down.

  • steven dalton

    31 thts a propa joke get ya head out ya a.r.s.e and sort it your losen loads of ppl ul end up goin outa business sort your heads out

  • Craig

    I bought a new 160 gig ps3 to replace my tired old 60 gig 1 so I could use more of the services psn has 2 offer so was a bit gutted to find the network was down but ill sit n hold on jus to play black ops cant understand these ppl whos switchin to xbox jus think ull have to start everthin all from scratch against ppl who have been on there games since they were realeased

  • tasha

    if this news is true then without a doubt i'm getting an xbox!!! most of my friends have switched but i love the ps so was hesitant but will most definitely buy an xbox if it's not on within the week!

  • chris

    ha ha ha ha I have always have been saying the ps3 is crap ha ha ha ha

    I do own a ps3 so not just saying it.

    PS3 is only better for the blu ray and games like FF XIII

    but xbox 306 has better games a better pad first person shooters way better.

    oooo and its not been hacked lol,

    my friends have already got a xbox because of this ps should be working keeping the people its losing instead of drawing in new people.

  • Jess

    I'll stand by Sony even tho the PSN may not be back up till the 31st I'll wait, why leave to xbl and spend extra money and work back up on ranks and trophies and lose out on SOCOM 4, if i can just wait for them to bring the full service back up.

    mad this happen…they should of fix this, before it became a problem thou

  • ResidentDemon

    I am upset that psn is down and wont be back up till may 31st, but security issues, do take a whle guys, and as for xbox, I have had nothing but bad luck with xbox, every single one I have had, ended up with hardware failure. Playstation is better if i must say so myself. plus the free network is better, not everyone can just go out and buy a monthly subscription live card. I mean yes i like xbox, but there is just some pros and cons to everything…. the pro to psn being hacked is well now sony learned that it can happen and fix it.. the con is well everyone could have lost info, and everyone lost out on live gaming for weeks, possably a month, but hey people learn from their mistakes. don't throw playstation out like that.

  • nickcruz

    If I dont get 50 bucks in my wallet from sony all will be forgivin.

  • Russ

    Peeved as I am that the PSN is down and already having an x-box I certainly won’t be paying Microsoft just to play COD or other games. I’ve spotted a few here who claim to be going to smash their psx’s and put them on u-tube, woohoo I can’t wait, I’m sure the other patient folk on here can do with a laugh watching you smash £250 worth of hardware up. Knock yourselves out & be sure to leave the link ;)

  • Bunko

    and two free games JiZel FiZel

  • dave

    good riddence

  • CJ

    I’m not jumping ship to xbox just because Sony screwed up, don’t get me wrong the 360 is a great console but the psn outage is a stupid reason to buy one, it’s cheaper to just get a few single player games to burn through like Mass Effect 2 or Fallout NV, or if you absolutely must have multiplayer then just set up a LAN match or play splitscreen with your mates, then you can use the money you save to go down the pub or something.

  • MAT

    People are taking rumors so seriously now aday's that is unreal that people would think it would come back up on 31st of May. I have both systems and Yeah I do play games like black ops on PSN. And quite upset it isnt up yet. But i tell u what Xbox still isn't better when i keep hearing from several xbox live users how some of their friends have been hacked and people are still being hacked on Xbox. So you get on PSN for not being up so quick but what has Xbox done to fix hacks that they are having currently.

  • Bunko

    I think 30 days +subscription, plus two games and the security package, and the strengthened network is great. I am amused and irritated at the same time, by all you whining pussies out there who are whinging and moaning about a FREE service being down for a few weeks… All you jumping ship to XBox are suckers. Down grading to a crappy platform, that crash every half an hour, and melt if you play them for 2 hours, and paying for online is just bonkers, when you can wait for a few weeks and have the mighty PSN back… I will look forward to watching the loony smash his PS3 up (£300 smashed to bits cos he can't play online)

  • David

    I do understand why people are getting so frustrated but do you really want sony to rush back online and then the same thing happen again?
    NO i dont think so.
    Give sony the time they need to fix this problem otherwise it WILL happen again.
    Its a gaming console, not the end of the world.
    To all you people that are saying "screw sony i'm getting an xbox" i say screw you if you are that sad that u need to buy another console just so u can play games online.
    I'm support sony all the way, you wanna moan at someone? Moan at the hackers.

  • No-one

    I know that they need time to get it fixed and secure, but this is taking too long now. Just put my ps3 on e-bay and going out to get xbox. Sorry sony but enough is enough.

  • mimamemo

    Thats the last straw sony. Xbox for me and some beer money for the weekend. C YA

  • Dave Weirich

    Just posted my ebay listing for 2 ps3 systems, 2 controllers, 6 awesome games. If I can get $200 a pice, a can switch to xbox with little to no loss on my part.

    Keeping us in the dark with occasionaly ambiguous information is unaccpetable. Top it off with a possible 3 weeks of waiting is enough for me to make the switch. I've had xbox before and it was a good system. The ablility to play games from the HD greatly reduces system noise and having a 'ring' burnt in my game cd's.

    Email me if interested in a ps3 slim.

  • Dave

    I totally agree with u dude.
    Lol smashing ur ps3 because you can’t play online is like the saddest thing I’ve ever heard. What a waste of money, wish I had that kinda cash to burn.
    I’d put it towards something decent tho, not a shitty console, much prefer to save up for the wii 2.

  • lee

    im tired of waiting you let me sony hurry up and get it fixed or im getting a xbox

  • Lee Robinson

    if u are hacking sony please stop hack xbox

  • Teefy

    Well I'm about to get an xbox, fook it why have 1 system when you can have both of them

  • Whiteboy

    your ps3 is working, it's just that psn isnt you idiot. Here's some advice-sell it instead.

  • onsuicidewatch

    I have nowhere else to go. I play GT5. I've waited years to race GT online. Great six months guys…was it all a dream?

  • taskermatic

    I had 3 xbox's before buying a ps3. I guess between breakdown and return of the xbox I spent at 4 months over 2 years without a games console. At least with the current situation on ps3 I can still play games etc. I'm guessing a lot of these negative posters are microsoft trolls because the disaster that was the red ring of death nearly put me off consoles forever. Compared to the amount of crap my 360 put me through the psn shutdown is nothing so wise up people.

  • ringo

    supposedly …

  • Charlesworth

    Its only a game console, get a life, this might do you some good

  • ringo

    stop talkin like a retard, get outside and get a life.

  • Steve Smith

    You lot are such whiney butches, why blame Sony for something that could happen to anyone, business or service, if someone wants to hack n their good enough, they’ll hack. Sony will evidently boost it’s systems capability a lot but what happens if it happens to xbox, would they not do the same? Would they not cut it off for more than day just because you impaitent idiots can’t live without your game time, go out, get a tan and do something constructive. Sure I can’t wait to get back online but I’m not crying about it or converting to a second rate machine! Just remember this: The average dual layer HD disc (XBox) is 30gig I’m size and a BluRay (PS3) is 50gig. See the restriction? Technology advances, disc size stays the same.

  • Jess

    I agree with u why leave Sony for an xbox if u only have to wait for PSN to come back stronger its a necessary delay to make sure it doesn't happen again

  • Jason

    The only issue I’ve got with sony over all this is they now expect us to start paying for our personal information to be protected! It should be something they have to do by law if our information is on their databases. Not trading to a shitbox though!

  • buddie

    I am sticking wit ps3 got a new x box don’t even play it

  • Cheech

    They should keep us informed much better xbox isn’t for me into my 2nd season on footy manager don’t normally do half a season also saving money on funny cigs as no online play just chill everyone there not keeping it off just for a laugh it will be on when safe

  • soliduse4

    lmao its a rumor dont take it for real guys… it dont say nothing about this on authentic sites like ign i think they would know before these guys would and it seems to me that the guy who put the post up is an xbox fan boy…

  • Sony hater

    30th c u later Sony xbox here I come

  • argh!!

    you know what! fuck there taking the piss now!!
    if psn isnt back up by may 31st damn it. im expecting a full refund for my ps3 console.. pads.. games.. headset.. downloads.. and also my psp too!!!!!!!!!!!

  • finoc4499

  • daveisafag

    lol 3 weeks of waiting and your done huh? get a life boy

  • Matt

    Clever, smash up a £300 console because someone hacked their online services.

  • Bigs

    Not gonna buy a shitty system but you’re saving for a wii 2? Irony.

  • Jack Tamaki

    I love Sony and I do own a 360 from the older era but once PSN’s fully operational, I can’t wait to game back on their servers with hopes that this stuff never happens again.

  • Shawn

    Sony said that it is free to sign up for Debix till June but you recieve Debix service free for 1 year.

  • Hunter

    I agree with Dan, I’m working. making money, playing all the single player games. and playing baseball with my friends. doesn’t get better than that

  • Kenneth Drinkall

    My credit card was stolen and someone purchased plane tickets as this card is the only thing tied to PSN. I was upset because they did not have the nerve to ask me if I wanted to go with them. I think they should give current owners at least a year free for their protection service. Until June is ridiculous. PAH! PS. you taste like dirty socks in my mouth now. Shame on you..

  • eric

    Why would u get xbox.. This down time will make you study in school alot more . cause ye kids need all the learning ye need.. and for people finished school.. get a job.. girlfriend or a dog.. yer just a number to song and Mircosoft.. they don't care bout ye peeps

  • craig dias

    haaa trust me they wont go out of business!

  • Nicholas Finnegan

    The xbox is rubbish and i'll never buy one… my bro has one and it's collecting dust. Xbox sucks, PS3 for life. Plus… why on earth would I PAY to be onlie?? Give me a break, that's never going to happen.

  • Todd

    I am frustrated too and honestly I would love to have an xbox right about now, but I don’t have the luxury to get rid of my ps3 and my 30 some games for an xbox. I’ll end up with less games, I’ll lose all my saves and downloadable games, AND I’ll lose all the progress I’ve made in online games like call of duty. I’m not happy with this outage at all, but I’d rather wait it out than completely start from scratch and spend months rebuilding my gaming portfolio. Get real people. It’s only a few weeks. It’s not like you can’t spend that time playing a single player game.

  • peter

    i duno i have an xbox … but havent touched it for a while … i like me trophies

  • HotDog_Man

    The thing that makes me really mad about Sony is that they do not uphold a promise. If your top exec's are saying…no…"promising"….PSN will be back online in a week, then you better make dam sure it is up in a week. Since that "Promise" has now been broken….every other statement from Sony will be worthless to me in the future. Even if you happened to find more damage then you expected, you don't make a promise unless you are positive you can uphold it….period!

  • Krome8

    Even though I'm pissed off with Sony after reading that they are looking to 31st may to get back online. I still am prepared to wait. Rather than waste money on a stupid xbox

  • Aaron

    you sir.. are a tool

  • Clarity

    The June deadline is just for the sign up for the ‘AllClear ID Plus’ Identity Theft Protection. The actual coverage is for a full year. I will provide you the link from the PlayStation blog for further details.…

  • AKO

    Your a freaking idiot you know that right?

  • Alex409

    For those of you complaining about PSN being down and going to get an xbox, why dont you go outside instead and get some fresh air cuz its clear you cant live without online. Try getting a life, its fun.

  • Clarity

    I would suspect that IF such a security breach occurred again it wouldn't be for quite some time as they're bound to be guarded.

    As for the offer of the protection program, that's on the table to cover any identity theft attempts to come from the information already compromised.

  • Dave

    Just because you can’t play online?

    All of you guys jumping to xbox really need to get a life.

  • Dave

    Get a life

  • mattk22

  • Alan DogPorn

    Could sony organise a pss up in a brewery? They would forget to make any beer. Shambolic clowns need a can of whoopass opened on their japanese asses. The man to do it is graham growler - there's no-one fouler.

  • Leo

    I've passed 3 whole games in single player since this went down and expected it to be on by now. Now I'm pissed off. At least I managed to get over 20 trophies :)

  • noe

    those who want to switch to the xbox are stupid because they happened long ago the same thing. I personally will wait as long as necesario.ps3 is better than that crap xbox

  • Pablo

    They were offline but for less than two weeks and yet rewarded thyr customers with way better.

  • George

    yea….you know your right…we should get a life… why dont we just sell our ps3s and go outside…infact im going to live outside from now on….Therez so many things to explore… btw i can speak sarcasm :)
    Oh and ummmm one more thing….why r you irritated in the first place when your advising others to get a life…We bought the ps3 so that we can play… idc if i play 1 hour or 10 hours a day i wanna make sure that i get the service none the less coz i paid for it…and if you think that the service is free think again..we paid for it when we bought ps3 for 649.99 over 399.99 for xbox (altho i have both systems :P ) … So i suggest that you think before you post because Sony is definitely going overboard with this one… No way in hell do we have to wait for this long and get nothing for it… a free subscription for one month??? R u freaking crazy… thatz like 5 dollars…. WTF!!! The only reason i bought ps3 was because psn was free and so after my live expired i didnt get it…if it didnt have that feature then i wouldnt have bought ps3 in the first place…so never think we r waiting for a free service.. we paid 300 dollar extra just for that thing…and blu ray and all that piece of crap - Go screw yourself…I just wanna play online…So fuck sony for their rubbish bullshit… i got live again last week and im selling my ps3 enuff is enuff

  • Pablo

    Xbox did go offline but for less than two weeks and yet rewarded thyr customers with way better.

    Yes it is true, gamers should use this time to do more active thigs. But the fact that Sony is treating their customers like this, is unacceptable.

    If the PSN is not back this week, I would expect the “welcome back” project have more pleasing attributes like a Game of our choice and $50 on my PSN account.

    I’m not switching to XBox, but I am thinking about buying one. People wont join XBL because it’s $50/year. Seriously of you don’t have $4.15 in one month then you are just Extreamely lazy!

  • Michael

    It’s not like Sony enjoys psn outages. Theyll fix it when they fox it, so Cool it Fattys and take the time to get some exercise

  • jack

    if sony wants anyone to stick to the ps3 heres what they should do;
    1) instead of some random crap for welcome back they should give 3 month of playstation plus, and 1 month for any new members
    2) our choice of 3 games instead of just us picking 2 games out of 5
    3) put all good ps3 exclusives on the PS store ex: uncharted, god of war, resistance etc… the point of exclusives is so that you only get them for this system,
    4) cut PS store prices in half
    if sony does this it might show us that they care at least a little bit
    please copy and paste this on any website you know so sony might read this

  • Ben

    thank you for saying something sane. ohh no you gamer freaks. no call of duty for a whole month. go lose some weight outside. ur right simon! psn will be back up, and when it comes up youll get free stuff. i view this as a good thing cause im getting free stuff and i got to go outside instead of wasting my time on ps3!

  • Ben

    u get it for a year idiot.

  • panthersfan

    To everyone that is tired of waiting and needs there online fix.why not run down to RAC and pay like $25 a week and just rent a 360 while PSN is down.its a cheap solution.its better than spending $200 on a 360 when psn might be back up anyday now.just my 2cents

  • Banksy

    No actually xbox live has never been down for more than 3 days.

  • Ben

    I will wait for PSN to come back, I really don't have the cash for an Xbox or XBL, but this is getting annoying. They missed there first deadline they gave.. Not much offered in return. Am I the only person that thinks a 1 in 77mil chance of having my details stolen is small enough not to worry about? Hackers can have my debt!

  • seth

    psn down 3 weeks……..and now its gonna be 3 more

  • http://None Smelly joe

    I just want to play black ops I love the l96a1 and I’m pritty good with it but if I can’t play until march 31st I will be pissed I mean Sonys good and all but seorisly they got hacked whatever you do don’t get an xbox

  • Devin Caroll

    Well… Buying a PS3 a few months ago was a waste. Anyone wanna buy a PS3? I'm gonna go play my 360, I always liked it more anyway.

  • Orsh

    I had enough, ( " April 27, May 6, May 31 " ) Sony; at first you were cool but now you are the worst fuking lier, crappy system that mankind could had ever create! I am sorry , but i must switch to Xbox of shit. I know it sucks and nothing compared to PS3 , but it is better than nothing which it is what you are offering us. Who knows when will you fix the Network if ever. And that 30 Day PSN Plus, and other pathetic mini rewards are not worth the wait. At least you could have been honest about the hack and deadline!!!

  • casper

    meh I still won't touch an xbox…

  • danneyboy

    i hope people can give sony a chance, it as been a big attake for sony…if it goes out the same way again then you will now to switch.

    I play every few days, mainly to release my stress by blowing shit up when my girlfriend gets on my tits and it normally works. If my girlfriend and i break up, il blame you sony ;) . Xbox is basicly out dated now and theres really no point in buying one, il stick with psn all the way, but dissapointed by the news. If it do's not go back online by may 31st, i believe many of us will be angry at the fact that you cant keep to your word, which is what is mainly getting me. Security is the priority here guys, so chill with your girlfriend, have a few beers and relax and play multi. As much as it pisses us all of, im sure it will be worth the wait.

  • robert

    bye bye sony thanks for nothing just a piece of rubbish console the xbox ,ight over heat but at least it work for a while

  • Robert Sinclair

    no we shouldnt give them a break they should have told us the truth in the first pklace

  • rdceltic

    Well said! I am just as angry as the rest of them but i'm not jumping ship. If people had the proper requirements (friends. A game…a brain!) they would play split-screen with friends! Nazi Zombies with a friend in split-screen is way more entertaining than having whiny 12 year old crying because they can't do it (thanks Dan, LOL) online!

  • your silly

    Why don't you play on a pc instead

  • Dave

    They have been hacked again in the last couple of days.

  • Dave

  • Waiter

  • Waiter

    Xbox gets hacked every day. They let it

  • charles


  • Matt

    Not that I want it to happen, but all those that are going to get an Xbox I will laugh at you if when PSN comes back online XBL is then hacked and taken down.

    If you get stressed/angry over PSN being down you need to relax and maybe do face to face interaction with people rather than virtual interaction.

  • i ate a bug

  • terry

    sony you are pethetic - yor treating customers like dirt, hardly any communication no estamate date to when it will be back online i've got a sony laptop, tele, and ps3 and i swear i'll never buy anything from sony ever again and i've also had enough of being ignored so i'm going out today and buying an xbox and will take great pleasure in burning my ps3! no amount of compensation could ever make me change my mind as it could never excuse the complete lack of respect you've shown so you stick it where the sun don't shine you poor poor excuse of a company.

  • terry

  • Thomas

    OMG, kids these days are so fucking spoiled and whining little bitches. YES psn is off because of a group of very smart criminals that fucked up there current system because these guys have no live but hacking. Sony is not really to blame about this issue and fuck man, do something else this month… go outside and fuck a nice girl for example… my god I hate gamers of today. I am hoping Sony will be back with better protection than before and I will keep enjoying there exclusive games till the end. Go sponsor Microsoft you fucking little bitches, please go, because I don't want to game with spoiled assholes like you whining guys. PlayStation is still the shit, I am playing the shit out of Kratos on Mortal Kombat, go find him on you stupid Xbox…and yes I had an Xbox… it really sucks… you get lesser content and the almost nothing (good) is exclusive except for Gears of War III then. Bye bye I hope all not understanding gamers die of aids.

    Are you going to blame a train company when a train gets robbed by motherfuckers?

  • crazyjay91

    What the fuck 31 st of may o my god man i am seriously thinking about changing to Xbox

  • Suysb

    Calm down lad

    If you think the outage is a result of the intrusion then you are not very bright, there is no commercial system that does not maintain secure and most likely offsite backup. Restoring the PSN would have been trivial. NO the intrusion provided an opportunity for Sony to re-eningeer the system and blame someone else for the outage. You will find a more secure and profitable (For Sony) service. The only other other alternative to this theory is that Sony had no disaster recovery strategy and many accounts are now gone, an unlikely case.

    But wait.. you can trust everything Japanese corporations have to say, especially Fukashima Daichii.

  • terry

    be quite alex409 - you know nothing and have nothing worth while saying, if people wan't to go get an xbox because psn is down thats up to them and there's not many people that blames them apart from dumb pointless people like you.
