May 7, 2011 // 2:52 am - As a follow-up to yesterday's PSN updates, Sony's Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media Patrick Seybold has posted another brief PlayStation Network update as follows:

As you may know, we've begun the process of restoring the service through internal testing of the new system. We're still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system. Verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.

As you've heard us say, our utmost priorities are the security of the network and ensuring your data is safe. We won't restore the services until we can test the system's strength in these respects.

When we held the press conference in Japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week. We were unaware of the extent of the attack on Sony Online Entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of the incredibly complex system.

We know many of you are wanting to play games online, chat with your friends and enjoy all of the services PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have to offer, and trust me when I say we're doing everything we can to make it happen. We will update you with more information as soon as we have it. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience of this network outage.

Yeah your right, searched on IMDB and found what looks like to be a perfect match.

Probably going to be a abysmal movie (political drama -- sound like fun, lol) but is a funny coincidence on the title.

I'm pretty sure that both movie as well as the site are genuine - not sure who own's the site directly but it's without doubt affiliated to Sony as well.

PS3 games cost as much as 360 games, there is no hidden fee there.

I believe the 31st was in regards to all of their services being fully restored, not just getting PSN back online itself.

How did it go from the 31st to only a few more days? I must have missed something.
