Sony said in its latest blog post that its restoration of service for the PlayStation Network and Qriocity network is still several days away.

Patrick Seybold, a spokesman for Sony, has become the most polite person on Earth. After all, he knows that the PSN’s 77 million registered users, and the 24 million users of The Station PC online gaming network, are not the happiest campers now, as the PSN has been down for nearly three weeks.

He said, “I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can’t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.”
