I’ve been playing a PlayStation Network game the past few weeks—no, really. You thought the PSN was six feet under? The game’s called “try to login” anyway. So far I’m “o” for…well, a bunch.
Hey, what else are we going to talk about? Most of the news about the PSN’s just guessing (much of it sloppy) by news sites filling crawl-space. Are we there yet? Nope. Are we there yet? Nope. And so forth.
The game site also noticed a Europe-based Sony community manager’s Twitter missive, in which @MusterBuster wrote “Once again, 31st May is the date for FULL restoration of PSN services. Restoration is phased. Online gaming will return BEFORE May 31st.”
Eurogamer apparently missed the news last week, when Sony itself said the gaming side of things would come back early (bits of media-streaming service Qriocity, too). While the SOE outage threw a wrench in those plans, we haven’t been led to believe the “incremental” restoration approach changed, merely that the timeframe did.
In any event, fingers crossed (again) for the sake of some 77 million no doubt nettled gamers. That, and I’d like to win “the login game” this week at least once.
