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.
