Sony has said it will be at least a few more days before it restores the PlayStation Network, which has been offline since it was hacked last month.
“I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored,” Patrick Seybold, Sony’s senior director of corporate communications and social media, wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “At this time, I can’t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.”
Hackers last month broke into Sony’s PlayStation Network and stole customer names, passwords, email addresses and possibly credit card information from more than 100 million accounts from various Sony platforms.
A class-action lawsuit was filed April 28 over the incident, and the law firm representing the victims alleges Sony failed to take reasonable care to protect, encrypt and secure the private and sensitive data of its users.
