Aren't they essentially redoing PSN?  If so, I'm not surprised it's taking this long.

I don't know what the hell they're doing except that it's something they should've done before the PS3 was even released.

Pretty much. It's not unreasonable to expect Somy to have a competent online infrastructure before the ps3 even launched; the fact that they need to rework everything from the ground up means that they didn't put in the effort required and expected of them.

Xbox Live has been down before but never for this long and never because of such an egregious lack of security.

Man, talk about a misleading article name. Still, the fact it's taking this long just to get online gaming back up, let alone the story, is pretty damned ridiculous.

"Hackers have broken into Square Enix's official Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Eidos websites and stolen the personal data of "at least" 80,000 registered users, a new report claims."

Uh not to be a dick Vanguard, but they didn't just say "Anon did it."  They pointed out, and I quote "The attack, which occurred on Wednesday, appears to have been conducted by a splinter cell of hacker group Anonymous, which has been blamed by Sony for last month's devastating PlayStation Network compromise. Anonymous has denied responsibility.

Anonymous has in recent days suffered from in-fighting. The internet relay chat (IRC) channels used by the hacker group were recently rendered unusable by disgruntled members of the organisation. "

I think that its valid reason to suspect maybe something is going on.  And considering Anonymous is well..freaking anonymous..members could have very well done this...just cause most of em don't know what they are doing does not mean they do.

Regardless, this is pretty lame.  No idea how Sony is gonna restore faith. 

Also, where does Deus Ex and Eidos websites hack come from?  I assume either its the same people, or hackers just feel that since Sony was weak on this, that other gaming companies are, and are just gonna go apeshit and steal whatever they can?

It's region by region actually, I guess they only do huge states all at once like CA. I'm guessing it's to avoid the servers being overloaded or just to have each region go up individually.

Europe:


Now that certain PSN services have been restored and you’re once again enjoying online gaming, it seems a good time to confirm what is being offered as part of the Welcome Back programme.

Once we restore PlayStation Store, which will be just a little while longer, you will have the opportunity to claim your Welcome Back gifts. Please note that the Welcome Back programme is only available for those countries with access to PlayStation Store*.

All existing PlayStation Network members will be able to access the following from PlayStation Store*:

Two PS3 games from the following list:

* LittleBigPlanet
* Infamous*
* Wipeout HD/Fury
* Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
* Dead Nation*

For those with PSP accounts, you will also be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list:

* LittleBigPlanet PSP
* ModNation PSP
* Pursuit Force
* Killzone Liberation*

- 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PS Plus subscribers*

- Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will be given 60 days free subscription.

- For existing Music Unlimited subscribers, you will be given 30 days free subscription.

- We are working on a Welcome Back offer in PlayStation Home and will share that when it is confirmed.

I would like to thank all of the developers and publishers involved in this programme for their support in making this happen. We certainly couldn’t have done it without you.

You will be able to access this content once PlayStation Store comes back online and we are doing everything we can to make that happen as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support and keep checking back on the blog for more information.

1. For eligibility for the welcome back programme consumers must be an account holder on 20 April 2011. Specific details about these offers and eligibility requirements will be posted as the services go live. All existing PSN registrants have 30 days from when the welcome back programme goes live to redeem their content.

2. For the German market, InFamous and Dead Nation will be replace with Super Stardust HD and Hustle Kings in the selection of PS3 games.

3. For the German market, Pursuit Force and Killzone Liberation will be replaced with Everybody’s Golf 2 and Buzz Junior Jungle Party in the selection of PSP games. Killzone Liberation will not offer online gameplay functionality.

4. Access to the 30 days free PS Plus subscription is only available for those countries where PS Plus is offered. You will have access to the PS Plus content planned for May for 30 days. Access to the free games and exclusive features finishes at the end of the 30-day subscription period. Anything you buy with exclusive discounts, dynamic themes and premium avatars are yours to keep forever.






I was afraid of this. I have all those PS3 games except dead nation and I don't care about it. So yeah, fuck this.


US:


Now that some PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have been restored and you’re once again enjoying online gaming and entertainment, we’re happy to provide details about the “Welcome Back” appreciation program for customers in North America. We developed the program as an expression of our gratitude for your patience, support and continued loyalty during the service outage. From all of us at PlayStation, thank you and welcome back!

This package will be made available to all existing registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity users in North America (US and Canada), and will be made available shortly after we have fully restored the service. More specific details about these offers and eligibility requirements will be posted as the services go live.

All PlayStation Network customers can select two PS3 games from the following list. The games will be available for 30 days shortly after PlayStation Store is restored and can be kept forever.

Dead Nation
inFAMOUS
LittleBigPlanet
Super Stardust HD
Wipeout HD + Fury

For PSP owners, you will be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list. The games will be available for 30 days shortly after PlayStation Store is restored and can be kept forever.

A selection of “On Us” rental movie titles will be available to PlayStation Network customers over one weekend, where Video Service is available. Those titles will be announced soon.

Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an additional 60 days of free subscription.
Existing Music Unlimited Premium Trial subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of free premium subscription.

We couldn’t have created such a compelling package without them!
