Sony "Uncertain" About PSN Reboot Date; Aiming For May 31st

Sony has recently recanted their promise that the Playstation Network, which has been offline since April 20th due to a successful security breach and theft of personal information, would be back up within a week. However, in a recent telephone conversation with Bloomberg, Sony spokesman Shigenori Yoshida has stated that they're still "uncertain" about when PSN services will be back online - and that Sony is rigorously testing a new security system that should put an end to the current woes.

Now for the good news. Yoshida confirms that Sony plans to "restart the services fully by May 31st." The bad news, of course, being that PS3 owners could well have to wait until the end of the month before the whole range of Playstation Network features are back online. Here's hoping that the core components are restored well in advance of this deadline.

Naturally we'll keep you up to date with the latest.
