PSN outage update April 24th
Today the PSN outage has reached its 3rd day and another new update has come out via the Playstation blog and they are now stating that to resolve the issue they have to rebuild the system to strengthen the network infrastructure. They have acknowledged that this will take some but that it will be worth it as they will be adding additional security to the network.
Here is what was said on the Playstation Blog:
We sincerely regret that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been suspended, and we are working around the clock to bring them both back online. Our efforts to resolve this matter involve re-building our system to further strengthen our network infrastructure. Though this task is time-consuming, we decided it was worth the time necessary to provide the system with additional security.
We thank you for your patience to date and ask for a little more while we move towards completion of this project. We will continue to give you updates as they become available.
Personally after hearing this I am expecting the Playstation Network to be down until Wednesday at the earliest, but it depends on how quickly they can get it done and lets face it rebuilding the network infrastructure of any system is going to take a long time.
