I'm sure Sony recieved millions upon millions of questions regarding this whole debacle, and they took the time to address some of the more frequently asked ones. The one most people have been wondering was, "when is the PSN be back online?" This is what they had to say:
"Our employees have been working day and night to restore operations as quickly as possible, and we expect to have some services up and running within a week from yesterday. However, we want to be very clear that we will only restore operations when we are confident that the network is secure."
Sony also stated that they will be doing their best to improve their network infrastructure, making sure that the PSN will be more secure to prevent any future breachings.
We’ve taken several immediate steps to add protections for your personal data. First, we temporarily turned off PlayStation Network and Qriocity services and, second, we are enhancing security and strengthening our network infrastructure. Moving forward, we are initiating several measures that will significantly enhance all aspects of PlayStation Network’s security and your personal data, including moving our network infrastructure and data center to a new, more secure location, which is already underway. We will provide additional information on these measures shortly.
Sony also seems determined to find the hackers responsible for the whole ordeal as well, saying that they will "find those responsible for this criminal act no matter where in the world they might be located." Looks like Sony's out for revenge.
