Sony's PlayStation Network May Be Back Online In Next Two Days

A new report suggests that Sony May bring the PlayStation Network back to life in the next couple days, weeks ahead of some predictions.

The report first broke on Eurogamer, (opens in new tab)which cited unnamed “trusted” source. The website said that the console giant is trying to restart its online game network as soon as possible, which could be within two days.

Sony Computer Entertainment’s corporate communications director Patrick Seybold told the (opens in new tab) website, “We're working to get the network back on as soon as we can."

The website also reported a PlayStation Europe community manager confirming that Sony is planning to bring back the online gaming first, before resuming other PSN services.

"Once again, 31st May is the date for FULL restoration of PSN services. Restoration is phased. Online gaming will return BEFORE May 31st,” read a (opens in new tab) tweet (opens in new tab)from the PlayStation Europe community manager “MusterBuster” earlier in the day.

Sony's PlayStation Network went down after an attack that compromised the personal information of 77 million users. This attack was followed by another on Sony's PC gaming network, which was also brought down.

Both attacks are seen as retaliation for Sony's prosecution of a PlayStation jail-breaker George Hotz.
