Sony says PSN to return in "a few more days", gamers skeptical

Summary:On the Playstation Blog today, Sony communications director Patrick Seybold said that the company was still uncertain on when the PSN service will be restored.

With the PSN outage now in its third week, Sony customers have been itching for any indication that the service will ever return.

And Sony isn't helping. On the Playstation Blog today, Sony communications director Patrick Seybold said that the company was still uncertain on when the PSN service will be restored.

"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," he said.

Seybold's statement comes after what appears bit of a miscommunication between Sony spokesman Shigenori Yoshida and Bloomberg. In a story published on Sunday, Yoshida indicated that Sony planned to completely restore the service by May 31st, over a month after the initial outage.

Apparently the statement, which spread to many other news sources, was not entirely true. Instead, Sony says it is focusing on beefing up its security before restoring access to its services. While Seybold maintains that the service, won't return for another few days, Sony has already missed its previous restoration deadline of May 8th. This makes many skeptical of the company's promises - and rightfully so.

How about you, readers - how much stock do you have in Sony's restoration timeline?
