Kaz Hirai, the main man behind the PlayStation division of Sony is holding a press conference this Sunday at 2pm local Tokyo time (1am EST/10pm PST). He will discuss what led to the blackout and when players can expect the network to come back online. No further information has been revealed from Sony at this time.
I’m pleased Sony is choosing this route because there will be a question and answer period after the conference where a lot of the mystery surrounding this event will be cleared. We’ll have full coverage of the conference later on Sunday morning. Don’t you just love time zones?
