It has been reported that, the Playstation Network (PSN) is up for developers. It appears to be sporadic at best. If this is true however, then we can expect to see online game-play available by Monday or Tuesday. Sooner if they are really “working around the clock.”
If you ask me, I don’t think we will see anything until the end of May. That’s the only time-frame that has ever been mentioned by Sony and I believe they are going to use every single day they can get out of this month until they open up Playstation Network (PSN) again. We also have to remember that access will be granted regionally. Japan 1st then probably the U.S. and Europe. Sony has not confirmed any roll-out plans and don’t expect to get one now. Sony Playstation Network hasn’t even utilized the email addresses they obtain from their consumer to relay any adequate information regarding updates. No, we just get a vague post on the PSN blog every other week.
However long it takes, we must never forget what happened here. Sony needs to be held liable for all that they have “NOT” done. Sony needs to take a good look at their Consumer Relations team in North America and possibly re-vamp that department as well. The only way anyone found adequate information during the last 3 weeks has been through 3rd party sites. If you notice, the PSN Blogs and Forums are filled with “User” comments and link-outs to any relevant information.
Sony also had mentioned Identity Protection right? Where’s the updates on that? Sony is trying to get out of this mess without spending one dime on their consumers. No one wants a free-trial of Playstation Plus or Qriocity. If anyone wanted those services, they would have initially had them. Give us free lifetime memberships to these services. Give us $50.00 (U.S.) in our Playstation Network Wallets.
You won’t see any of these in the “Welcome Back Package” from Sony because they loose money on this. Sony’s greed will and has become their downfall.
