Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

PSN May Not Be Back Up Before the End of May

Ouch! In a piece with Bloomberg Japan, a Sony spokesman has said the service may not be fully back up and running until the end of the month. Which means we might see some services restarted earlier, and of course, Sony America and Europe may be on different schedules.

Sony's share price in Tokyo is down about 200 points since the start of the shutdown, from around 2,500 yen, to 2,300, having bounced back 2% today, but was down by 10% at its worst. This news could see the price fall further still as the negative press it will generate will have some impact.

Sony Europe updated its blog over the weekend, saying that the company is still testing and working towards resumption of service:
As you’ve heard us say, our utmost priorities are the security of the network and ensuring your data is safe. We won’t restore the services until we can test the system’s strength in these respects.

So, basically, its not over by a long shot!
