Sony was threatened, credit card numbers were stolen, gamers were frustrated, and Sony still doesn’t have a clue about what is going on. And yet the train wreck — also known as Sony’s PSN service — continues to take its toll on gamers. So, if anyone out there was hopeful for a return of multiplayer madness on your PS3 anytime soon, well, sorry, but you might have to wait a bit longer.
Shigenori Yoshida, a Tokyo-based spokesman for Sony, stated that Sony does not know when it will resume PSN services. Of course, gamers are probably already used to being in the dark with their PS3s, as the downtime has eclipsed two weeks already. Tack on several more more days of unreliability and temporary shutdowns before this whole debacle occurred; we might very well have a new Guinness World Record on our hands.
Xbox Live, I can report, is working flawlessly.
