May 9, 2011 // 2:48 pm - Update: The PS Blog has now posted the following message regarding their PSN restoration timeline update, to quote:

"I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can't give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. We're terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process."

Today Bloomberg (linked above) reports that Sony expects PSN services, including Qriocity, to be fully restored by May 31, 2011.

To quote: "Sony Corp.'s PlayStation Network and Qriocity online services remain shut as of today, Shigenori Yoshida, a Tokyo-based spokesman said. Sony is uncertain when it can resume the services, Yoshida said by phone today.

The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged, he said. Sony shut down the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services April 20 because of possible data theft by hackers.

The maker of PS consoles had planned to restart partial operations within a week after boosting the level of security system, the company said May 1."

Yeah your right, searched on IMDB and found what looks like to be a perfect match.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1521197/

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.
