After a phone call to Bloomberg, Shigenori Yoshida, a Tokyo-based spokesman for Sony, said this in regards to the PSN outrage:
"[Sony] is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged."
Now, while this is Sony's plan, Yoshida also states that "Sony is uncertain when it can resume the services." In other words, don't expect for the PSN to be completely up and running by the end of the month. That date is just what Sony is aiming for.
Sony's PSN has been down since April 20, enabling hackers to compromise the personal data of millions and millions of users. A few days later, Congress released the official numbers, confirming that 77 million PSN accounts have been stolen. There is now an investigation on the whole ordeal involving Homeland Security, the FBI, and external security firms.
So what do you guys think? Do you think Sony will have the PSN up and fully operational? Or do you guys think it's going to take even longer than that?
