1350°
190w ago - As a follow-up to yesterday's PSN updates, Sony's Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media Patrick Seybold has posted another brief PlayStation Network update as follows:

As you may know, we've begun the process of restoring the service through internal testing of the new system. We're still working to confirm the security of the network infrastructure, as well as working with a variety of outside entities to confirm with them of the security of the system. Verifying the system security is vital for the process of restoration. Additional comprehensive system checks and testing are still required, and we must complete that process before bringing the systems online.

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.

When we held the press conference in Japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week. We were unaware of the extent of the attack on Sony Online Entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of...

193w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN updates, as follows:

First of all - you asked for it, we listened - in the Latest section you'll find a new tab called 'New This Week', which is exactly the way the old Latest section used to be.

So if you want to see everything that's dropped in the update, that's where you should head first. Don't say we never do anything for you.

We've got loads of gaming goodness for you this week, including the launch of The Fancy Pants Adventures, Battle: Los Angeles and Red Johnson's Chronicles.

Fancy Pants Adventures tasks you and up to three friends (online or offline!) with traversing the line drawn world in search of your kidnapped sister - if you've played the Flash game of the same name you'll know the score.

Battle: Los Angeles is the movie tie-in game for the recent alien invasion blockbuster - kick the aliens off your planet and protect the human race in this first person shooter.

Red Johnson's Chronicles follows in the footsteps of BTTF and Sam and Max, you play as the titular Red Johnson as he attempts to solve the mystery of the murder surrounding...
