**UPDATE** AS of 4/26 4:40 EST http://www.vgrevolution.com/2011/04/latest-on-psn-outage-personal-data-breached/
Patrick Seybold from Sony just updated the Playstation Blog on the ongoing Playstation Network Outage of 2011, with a non-update. The system is still down and there is no time-frame. Many around the internet were hoping that PSN would be back up and running in some form by tomorrow, but with this last update and that Seybold says “I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.” makes me think the downtime will last at least another 48-72 hours and maybe might even last through the remainder of the week.
Since the external intrusion of PSN last week, Sony has decided to shut the system down and rebuild the entire network in-order to increase security. This process has taken an extremely long time and has many gamers in an uproar, and the vague non-updates from Sony haven’t helped much, though with such a situation I’m sure Sony doesn’t want to reveal any secrets and still has a massive job in-front of them. We still ask Sony to at least clearly update us and the community on the status of personal information that is stored on the Playstation network. If personal data such as credit card numbers were accessed the sooner gamers know the sooner they can take protective measures.
