Sony finally released info on the outage.The online network will be back up and running this week.Hopefully tomorrow (tues.5-3-11).Only the gaming portion will be up for the moment (COD,Crysis,MK etc) and the Playstation store will be back up sometime later this month.

There WILL be a mandatory update (god only knows how long it'll take)in which you will have to change your password.You WILL keep your friends list and other stuff.I recommend pulling credit info and using prepaid cards for a while though.

In addition to that they will be giving one free month of Playstation Plus to ALL users (an additional month to PS+ people that have it already) as well as an unknown amount of free content.

O~k.....Seems like they now want to go with "It will be back up when we feel it is secure."
In other words "When we feel like it."
This is getting frustrating.Heres hoping for at LEAST friday. Sad

You and me both. And everyone. Sony from the start needed to be completely up front from the start. I didn't see this at all, but I guess that's one more reason for myself, not to have any console loyalty, from any company. MS is no different, although they've haven't experienced anything like this. This year for games is looking really good, especially for Sony, and then this happens. I can honestly tell you that this, for the time being, will alter which system I buy games for. I still love ya' PS3, as my other consoles, so there is no hatred at all. My hate is for the punks who tangled with the network, but if you have any online connection, you can be a target anyway. I can only imagine what stringent policies the PSN will have after it's back 100%. When will that be? Only the Maker knows. Cool

I don't want come off like a Johnny-Come-Lately about the PS3. I love the console. Our generation of consoles are very powerful for the size they are, and what they can do. Remember the CD-i? Look at the size of that. Not that it's humongous, but bigger than our current gen. I guess that as long as you have any kind of internet connection, nobody is immune. This is just an absolute shame. Cool

Well well well. Another weekend for no online. I'm not surprised. First it's this week, then next week. Honestly,I really don't think THEY know. To say"soon"' well, so what. Soon could be three weeks. If they had said it could be 4-6 weeks, I think a number of people would have jumped ship. But by saying "sometime soon", you keep people hanging on. The new security ID Theft program they're going to be doing? Why doesn't 360 have it? The Wii? Imagine when it gets back online, this happens again. I read alot of tweets and alot of message boards. Oh well. XBOX Live and Wii still functioning normally Cool

I still cannot find a legitimate answer on why Sony needs this ID Protection Plan, but the 360 and Wii do not. I'm not fully understanding why Sony was hit with this problem but not the other consoles, and if they were, where's their Protection Plan!? Why don't they need it? I admit I'm not really mad they're offline because I have other consoles. Sony should stop releasing reports of being up soon. Really. They bought about 3 weeks time by saying May 31st. Guaranteed if they would have said that from the start, a number of folks would have bailed on them. Cool
