PlayStation Network In The "Final Stage Of Internal Testing"

In a post by Patrick Seybold, the Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media, Sony has claimed that they are now in the final stages of testing the PlayStation Network, meaning they are very close to restoring the service.

"Today our global network and security teams at Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment began the final stages of internal testing of the new system," claimed Seybold, "an important step towards restoring PlayStation Network and Qriocity services.

"As previously mentioned, we’ve been working around the clock to rebuild the network and enhance protections of your personal data. It’s our top priority to ensure your data is safe when you begin using the services again.

"We understand that many of you are eager to again enjoy the PlayStation Network and Qriocity entertainment services that you love, so we wanted you to be aware of this milestone and our progress. We will provide additional updates as soon as we can."

Again, we have no idea precisely when Australians will be able to log on to the PlayStation Network. In earlier statements Sony claimed they would be phasing in PSN features late this week, but there has been no confirmation with regards to how Sony will implement this, and in what order.


    omg this article is from the fuuture!! right now is may 5th 7:01p.m. ahhhh.. and it still is NOT UP!!!!

      It's probably because you are not from Australia, possibly America?. Australia is always around 12hrs forward from American time.

    yeah final stages of installing a firewall hahah zing ;-)

      No, they're in the final stages of renaming "UserInformation.csv" to "NothingInterestingMoveAlong.csv". That'll make it a bit harder for the hackers to find our data next time.

    US account holders are apparently getting a year's free identity theft protection. Any news whether we'll be offered something similar? Or are we going to be considered a large pimple on the arse of the world like usual?
