Sony PSN Back Up Online For Internal Testing
We are not that far away from what PS3 owners have been waiting for, as Sony PSN is back up online for internal testing. OK, the PlayStation Network is still not live for users, but it is the closest we have been in the 17 days that the service has been down. The first test is to ensure that the security along with the network infrastructure, is working correctly.
According to PlayStation Blog, Sony is working with a number of outside entities to test the new security features, just to make certain that it will not be prone to future attacks. This is a very important step in the process of bringing PSN back online, and once all the necessary checks have been done, then we will be back in business.
The PlayStation Network Status has been an interesting one over the past couple of days; we knew that internal testing was about to begin, as well as a sorry letter from Sony Corporation CEO. However, none of this came to any comfort of those PSN users who have been waiting over two weeks, as well as the fact that their details are in the hands of some hackers – or worse.
Can we truly be about to start PS3 online gaming once again?

this is why i like 360 more ya it doesnt look as good as PS3 but atlest i can play online i would rather pay 100 bucks a year and play online when i want then have it for free but only play it some times
I also heard within the next 12 hours for UK and apparently eveyone will be back online at the same time with the exception of Japan.
should be back online in the next 12 hours for sure, the testing doesnt take more than 48 hours. I think 6:00am UK time on sunnday.
get a grip i want it to be back up to but ffs some of the comments here suggest some people need to get some fresh air
At the moment ive really struggled keeping up with sony in fact we all have... 1 day yes we ensure to get the psn back but we dont which pisses me & everyone off... its hard to keep up with them but ive learnt along the way its hard keeping up a company like theres... i mean before this i was like who are Geohotz & Anonymous... then apparently they were haters of sony who had an idea to hack them ( well at least thats what i think they wanna do )... so my point is that this is a hard job for sony & no1 really relizes how hard this is to fix... as well it was surely bound to happen... even xbox have had an outage before... so my point overall is that this is hard for sony & we must understand that its a hard task to finish securing the psn back in its best you could say... & dont get me wrong ive gotten feed up with sony but all we can do is support them right now... SOO WELL DONE SONY KEEP UP THIS WORK! BUT ALSO TRY BE FAST FOR US WAITING USERS! OTHER THEN THAT I & HOPEFULLY MOST PSN USERS UNDERSTAND YOUR ATTACK IS HUGE SO DO WHAT YOU MUST! if you want replie from this message & show me your opinion
Haha I saw someone post this on the PS blog the other day: "4/20: PSN is hacked, *ADDRESSES* and personal info given away. 5/1: Osama Bin Laden found and killed. Draw your own conclusions."
I only want to know when PSN will exactly come back online. It supposed to be online yesterday (6th May) what the hell happened? or did they have another attack? Almost 3 weeks in and PSN remains down, err… currently undergoing maintenance. And apparently, by way of cnet, there is a 3rd attack planned this weekend.

guys stop haveing ago at sony i know its anoying that we cant play but they are fixing this problem out of there own pocket xbox pay for there internet look at it this way cos sony are spending all this money on makeing sure it wont be hacked again so aslong as they do it right this will never happen again hpefully so long live playstation network n hopefully its all back up n running again soon
You right, but saying they have to fix this problem out of there own pocket isnt, are you suggesting because Sony got hacked we should pay to get it fixed?
Come on PSN. I know people think that Sony can't be trusted but they had the best security even better the mircosofts X-Box online apperantly. Any firewall can be broken and it obvs took a while for the buggers that hacked PSN. Don't you think now more then ever Sony is to trust?? Being that their securit is even better then before? I can't wait for them to put the PSN back online and even though i'm frustraited that it's been so long, i'm glad they have been thorough. Don't know baout you but it's given me more reason to stay with Sony. BRING ON THE ONLINE PLAY DUDES!
agreed! and even if they do get back online i think loads of ps3 users will agree when i say that what they have offered us for being loyal to psn isnt enough!!!!!
