Seriously through did i ever say that they were doing nothing ?? Man they could be all playing on xbox for all i know (thats a joke) However
my point is the information they gave us has never been accurate.. firstly they said they went down for Maintenance then after couple days later they then said they have been attacked then they give us a date when they'll be back on (3rd of May to be precise) which never happened. And now the hackers allege that they have over 2.2 million users credit card information including their CCV2 security numbers; Sony says the information is encrypted... Sony built it success with trust now they throwing it back at are faces
If they cant give an exact date as these things do take awhile to fix then why don't they just be honest with us ??? they shouldn't get people hopes up..
You said they've lied about pretty much everything, so that suggests you think they're doing nothing. When it first went down, it was because they had detected an intrusion. At this point they didn't know exactly what had happened or the scope of it, no point in announcing it and worrying millions of people over what could be nothing. The maintenance was partly true. Later that day they said it may be due to an external attack. They then brought in the security experts, and as soon as they knew the scope of the situation, they announced it. Have you not read anything on the blog?
As for 3rd May, that date was thrown around, but never an official date as far as I know (if you can link to a post on the official blog, being the official place for announcements, then I'll gladly stand corrected). The only timescale I recall them giving is that they were aiming to have partial services back up within a week (from the date of that post). Something most likely went wrong in the testing phase (which we were updated on), and then we got another update apologising for the further delays.
The 2.2 million card details I think was from SOE, and were from an old back up. Most of ther card details (if they really were stolen) will be outdated and useless. Sony have never denied that card details were stolen, they have warned people of the possibility from the start.
Sure they could update us a little bit more, but if there's nothing to update on then there's little point. They have to be careful with what they say because of people who will interpret things like 'we are working round the clock to get PSN back online' as 'PSN will, without a shadow of a doubt, be back up by 3rd May, feel free to flame us to hell if we're wrong'.
And why would they play xbox? They're obviously all playing Portal 2 and been stuck on one of the puzzles for the past 2 weeks being the useless chimps people seem to think they are.
