What about my PSN account?
If you had a username already in place, but no actual info with your name, address etc.. I would say yes since your username was compromised.

Judging from this latest update, i'd say definately not.
A week or 2 more, could be even a fu*king month still.

Also, look out for more information on the rest of our Welcome Back programme, including which free content you will be eligible for. We will be offering PSN users the opportunity to select two PS3 games from a list of five, as well as offering PSP users the opportunity to choose two games from a list of four. We will let you know exactly what games are available very soon.


Might be for SCEA (America) too.

At least it's a nice gesture from them...

F- X-box ps3 will be back up soon
You may be right but I wouldn't bank on that, not the way this company has handled this and things in the past year. Just look at the patterns they've shown the past year. The only thing they are really prepared to do is sue you and make you sign a new big "fu*k YOU" TOS while downgrading the PS3 you bought after they win in court.

if you’re expecting to go online with your playstation 3 or psp this weekend, you might want to make other plans. In the latest update from sony computer entertainment on the status of the currently offline playstation network it sounds like we’re in for a longer wait than we (or sony) expected.

Sony said on sunday that it planned to bring some of its playstation network and qriocity systems back online by end of week. But a new message from scea’s senior director of corporate communications patrick seybold provides little hope that will happen.

“we’re still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system,” seybold wrote this evening on the company’s blog. “verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.”

sony stressed in the past that it wouldn’t bring its playstation network services back online unless it was confident in the strength and security of its system. Based on the following statement, it sounds like sony may not have been aware of the scope and severity of its problems when it made promises to bring psn back online in the timeframe provided.

“when we held the press conference in japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week,” seybold wrote. “we were unaware of the extent of the attack on sony online entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of the incredibly complex system. We know many of you are wanting to play games online, chat with your friends and enjoy all of the services playstation network and qriocity services have to offer, and trust me when i say we’re doing everything we can to make it happen.”

so, exercise more patience, playstation owners. It sounds like we’re going to be waiting even longer to see each other back online anytime soon.

sony removes info stolen from psn hack


tokyo, may 7 (reuters) - sony said on saturday it had removed from the internet the names and partial addresses of 2,500 sweepstakes contestants that had been stolen by hackers and posted on a website, and said it did not know when it could restart its playstation video games network. The company, under fire since hackers accessed personal data from about 100 million user accounts of its playstation network and pc-based online gaming services, said in a statement details posted on the inactive website also included three unconfirmed e-mail addresses.

the data came from customers who entered a 2001 product sweepstakes contest. The list did not include information on credit cards, social security numbers or passwords.

"the website was out of date and inactive when discovered as part of the continued attacks on sony," sony said, adding that the company took the website down shortly after finding out about the postings on thursday. Sony chief executive officer howard stringer apologised on friday to users of the firm's playstation network and other online services, breaking his silence on the massive data breach. The company said last sunday that it would begin restoring services within the week but a spokeswoman said on saturday this would not be possible, and that no date had been fixed for when services would resume.
