Sony’s PlayStation Network will end its 11-week outage, as its service comes in complete restoration in Japan this Wednesday. Last April 20, Sony PSN and Qriocity experienced a hack attack, which brought 77 million users’ private information in jeopardy and cost the company for almost $70 million.

The company also announced a couple of deadline recovery for the past months, including the April 21 statement that it can be a day or two before PlayStation Network gets fully restored. Kazuo Hirai, Sony’s Executive Deputy President, promised the services’ restoration by the end of the week on May 1. Then on May 14, Sony announced the initial phase of PSN’s resumption. The latest announcement was made on May 30, wherein the company promised a full restoration by the end of the week.

More than 6 weeks of waiting and suffering till Sony's user subscriber can access again the PSN and Qriocity services.

Online services is still down and it will take additional 3 weeks long to be able to fully work as Sony announced. The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged, he said. Sony shut down the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services April 20 because of possible data theft by hackers.

Sony aimed to re-launch some services (including Home, chat functionality and friends lists) during last week, but delayed its plans in order to finalize testing of what it claims is a reconstructed and more secure network. For the time being, Sony will likely focus on getting new PS3 firmware out to allow users to update their usernames and passwords, and restoring online gaming, which has been deactivated since April 20.
