After announcing that the PlayStation Network would indeed have some services restored this week, Sony has released a statement saying they're in the final stages of internal testing on their new security system.
No word on how long these final steps will take, or when the service will actually be back up and running again, but it looks like, for now, things aren't all bleak on the Sony front. For the full statement, check after the break.
Today our global network and security teams at Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment began the final stages of internal testing of the new system, an important step towards restoring PlayStation Network and Qriocity services.
As previously mentioned, we’ve been working around the clock to rebuild the network and enhance protections of your personal data. It’s our top priority to ensure your data is safe when you begin using the services again.
We understand that many of you are eager to again enjoy the PlayStation Network and Qriocity entertainment services that you love, so we wanted you to be aware of this milestone and our progress. We will provide additional updates as soon as we can.
So that sounds promising. Are you guys ready to have your PSN turned back on, or are you still mad at Sony? Let us know.
