The PlayStation Network has been down for a while now. We've been warned that it may be down for a little while longer. Now Sony says it could be weeks still before the PSN is fully operational.
Sony's Shigenori Yoshida has told Bloomberg that his company's deadline for the full return of all PlayStation Network services is May 31. The PSN went down on April 20. That's nearly six weeks of downtime if it takes that long for the entire network to be restored to full operation.
While you'd assume/hope that signing into the network and playing games online are the first things to come back up, and in a much quicker timeframe than May 31, Yoshida says that Sony is "uncertain" when the PSN will actually get back up and running.
