Sony hasn’t updated its PlayStation blog since last Friday, May 6, though we’ve heard bits and pieces through official (as well as unofficial) channels suggesting the PSN as a whole could remain in the fetal position through May 31 (Sony now denies this, though in that sense that the PSN’s up date could be sooner, could be later).
Now, now–as Craig Ferguson might say, settle down: Sony spokesperson Patrick Seybold just dropped a few lines on the blog titled “PlayStation Timeline Update” to placate the perturbed:
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.
We’ve come a long way in three weeks, morphing from a tame “we sincerely regret” to an almost ardent “we’re terribly sorry.” Best, I think, if we all take a few deep breaths, relax, and give this thing a bit more room. It’ll be back when it’s back, and–one hopes, because a second outage would be apocalyptic–only when it’s 100-percent ready and fortified.
