If anyone was watching the BBC News channel in the last hour or so hopefully they can verify this, but apparently we can expect a statement from Sony on the PSN outage, including the rumours surrounding customer credit card details, ‘within a couple of hours’.
According to a poster on GAF, the BBC have been in contact with Sony regarding the issues on a regular basis, and are expecting official word soon. That statement is also expected to include a timescale for resumption of services. According to reports on Twitter, the business news segment has just ran a comprehensive story on the whole thing.
We’d expect such a statement to arrive on the official blogs first, as all updates have been doing. We’ll let you know when it arrives, if indeed it does.
Update: further clarification – apparently the BBC correspondent was being continuously told by Sony that they’d issue a press release in ‘a couple of hours’, rather than a specific time frame. In short: don’t expect a response any time soon.
