In a short Tuesday blog post, company spokesman Patrick Seybold wrote:
“I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. 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.”
It’s been almost three weeks since Sony shut down its PlayStation Network after an attack on its servers April 20. The company planned to have some services restored last week, but said on Friday that it had to push that deadline back after determining the full extent of the breach.
Sony announced on April 26 that a breach of its PlayStation Network compromised millions of customers’ personal information, and the company cautioned that credit card information may have been stolen. On May 2, the company announced its Sony Online Entertainment unit had been hacked and that credit card data had been stolen from its servers.
