It is Saturday May 7 and the Playstation network down problem is still going on. 70 million users are still chomping at the bit wishing that the system would come back on. The last deadline that was given to us was that it would be up by the end of this week. Well it is the end of this week, will it be back?
The Playstation network down problem was caused by a group of hackers but people are not being patient. Netflix is working for some people but not for others. When the network comes back online it is supposed to be rolled out by regions. Since this is true there have been people faking that the network is back up in their area just to get a rise out of other users dealing with the Playstation network down problem.
Because of the problems this has caused for people Sony is going to offer a “welcome back” package which will include a free month of playstation plus. Users are pretty much saying we don’t care about free stuff – we just want the network back! Along with this Playstation network down compensation Sony also plans to provide identity theft protection. As of right now they have only done this for the US and other countries will be able to get protection soon.
