    Playstation Network: Bad Information

    There was some unfortunate wording in a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]about
    Sony’s PlayStation Network, leading many publications to report that
    the network will be down until May 31. But that’s incorrect, according
    to Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold. In fact, Sony has not mentioned a
    date for the restart of the PlayStation Network, which has been down
    since April 20. There is no new information about when the service will
    be back up, Seybold said. The exact restart date is a big deal because
    Sony’s online gaming service has more than 77 million registered users
    and many of them are anxious about when they can play online games
    again.

    According to Bloomberg, Sony spokesman Shigenori Yoshida said Sunday
    that Sony is uncertain when it can resume services. The story should
    have stopped there but then it went on to say that Sony is adopting
    better security “and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is
    unchanged, he said.” That’s where the confusion comes in. Last week,
    Sony’s No. 2 executive said that Sony’s goal is to restore the service
    in May (which is where Bloomberg evidently got the May 31 date).
    In fact, if it takes until May 31 to get the service back up, that
    would be pretty catastrophic, since it would mean the service would be
    down for a total of around 41 days. But a lot of things were uncertain a
    week ago. Hirai said back then that Sony planned to get the service
    back up “this week,” which ended on Saturday May 7. Now Sony says only
    that it will take longer to get the service back up than it thought. But
    publications are reporting that “[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].” Such headlines are wrong.
    Seybold said, “I agree. Trying to clean it all up now.”
    In other words, relax folks. There is nothing new here. Meanwhile,
    another report from Cnet, the tech news site, is also being called into
    question. Cnet reported an “exclusive” story that predicted that
    Anonymous, the hactivist group that has tangled with Sony, planned on a
    “third attack” against Sony’s web sites. The attack was supposed to
    happen over the weekend, but it didn’t. Now Cnet said that the attack
    may have been averted by the publicity and Sony’s reaction to it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    to a new vulnerability, which was closed off. And now Anonymous has no
    avenue back into Sony’s servers. Sony isn’t being absolutely precise
    here, but Seybold said in an email, “There is no accuracy to that
    report. We’re focused on ensuring the security of the network before
    bringing the services back online.”
