After being offline for five days, Sony has finally decided to update the public regarding the PlayStation Network outage.

As stated by Patrick Seybold, SCEA comms boss, on the PS Blog:

"I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don't have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.

"As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we're working to get them back online quickly. We'll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience."

Due to an "external intrusion" last Wednesday, the PSN was taken offline and has yet to resurface.
