Sony: PSN will take ‘at least a few more days’

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2011

Sony’s latest update on its PlayStation blog regarding the nearly three-week long PSN outage gives us some hope that we will be playing games very soon. Understandably, they can’t give an exact date for when access to the network will be returned, but Sony says that it will “likely be at least a few more days.”

You might remember that the security breach potentially exposed the private information on over 100 million user accounts. So when the network goes back online, Sony’s work will be far from over as they will have to deal with some consequences, including a class-action lawsuit. The company may even reward users by giving them a free month of access to the PlayStation Plus paid subscription service, free ID theft monitoring and free extra content.

PSN Outage Cost Capcom “Hundreds Of Thousands, If Not Millions”

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 9th, 2011

For most of us the PSN outage has just cost us some time playing the games that we love, but for others it has cost much more. PSN is losing money for developers just by keeping people from buying games and content.

VP Christian Svensson, in a post on the Capcom Unity forums says, “As an executive responsible for running a business, the resulting outage [is] obviously costing us hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in revenue that were planned for within our budget. These are funds we rely on to bring new games to market for our fans.” Hopefully Sony sorts things out sooner rather than later, but I think we can all agree that Sony and any hurt developers may have gotten a bit complacent in thinking that such a thing could never happen and not being at least a bit prepared for a scenario like this. Never put all of your eggs in one basket people.

PSN suffers an outage, Anonymous claims responsibility

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2011

We reported earlier that “Anonymous” was not very happy with Sony and now we have word that the PlayStation Network and other Sony websites are having problems. A widespread outage, which started in Europe last night has now spread to North America.

On one hand Anonymous is claiming responsibility for the attacks, but Sony says that “sporadic maintenance” may cause PSN service to be interrupted throughout the day. Has the group already started their campaign against Sony, or is this just actual maintenance? Have you had trouble?
