Well today is the day that the Playstation network down problem was supposed to be fixed. May 4 is here and the world is still waiting for their favorite games to come back online. It looks like PSN in Japan is already back online (these are just rumors) and had many in other areas hopeful but that’s not what happened. Everything is still offline in the US and Europe.
The Playstation network down problem seems to have become more complicated after the complete breach of its SOE sector. SOE stands for Sony Online Entertainment. There has not been any update on the official PSBlog since May 2 so we are still waiting to hear what is going on with this deal. The Playstation network down chatter is going crazy but the executives at Sony are being strangely quiet.
Popular belief is that the Playstation network down problem will be remedied by this weekend but that is not necessarily true. We are going to have to continue to play the wait and see game. There are millions of people that are sick and tired of the waiting game though. What have you been doing while the online games are down?

“We told the subcommittee about our intent to offer complimentary identity theft protection to U.S. account holders and detailed the “Welcome Back” program that includes free downloads, 30 days of free membership in the
PlayStation Plus premium subscription service; 30 days of free service for Music Unlimited subscribers; and extending PlayStation Plus and Music Unlimited subscriptions for the number of days services were unavailable.”
They also say that they are working around the clock and all that jazz…
