Now “Uncertain” of Return, Six Weeks of Downtime Now a Possibility

A report from Bloomberg suggests Sony PS3 users could be in it for the long haul regarding continued Playstation Network downtime.

A Japan based spokesperson for Sony claims the company is now “uncertain” when the online service, in whole or in part, will return online.  Previously, Sony was shooting for a partial PSN return at the end of last week.

Security measures continue to be implemented at Sony to prevent another intrusion like the one that compromised the personal data from millions of PSN accounts on April 20th, prompting the shutdown.  The spokesperson said a May 31st target date to fully restore the PSN remains.

This, while both users and companies get impatient in the face of continued downtime.  Another report has a Capcom executive on the record saying the downtime has cost that company quite a bit of money so far.
