"SOME PLAYSTATION®NETWORK AND QRIOCITY™ SERVICES TO BE AVAILABLE THIS WEEK
Phased Global Rollout of Services to Begin Regionally;
System Security Enhanced to Provide Greater Protection of Personal Information
Tokyo, May 1, 2011 – Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) and Sony Network Entertainment International (SNEI, the company) announced they will shortly begin a phased restoration by region of PlayStation®Network and Qriocity™ services, beginning with gaming, music and video services to be turned on. The company also announced both a series of immediate steps to enhance security across the network and a new customer appreciation program to thank its customers for their patience and loyalty."
Hopefully we are back on within a couple days!
Q: When will the PlayStation Network and Qriocity be back online?
A: Our employees have been working day and night to restore operations as quickly as possible, and we expect to have some services up and running within a week from yesterday(4-26-11). However, we want to be very clear that we will only restore operations when we are confident that the network is secure.
Hopefully that will include online play so we can smash some faces!
P.S. Thanks to all that have filled out their info on the roster page!

An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation
Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough
investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our
network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network &
Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing
quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our
utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation
quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue
to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.
Hope this sheds some more light on the situation WhiteStar. Hang in there guys The Rebellion will continue shortly once this is figured out.
