PSN down for the sixth day!

For PlayStation gamers, it's been almost a week of frustration. Today, Sony offered a small update on the sixth day of the PlayStation outage. In a brief post on the official PlayStation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment America senior director of corporate communications and social media Patrick Seybold thanked PSN subscribers for their patience.
"I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online," he said. "Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time. As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available."
The PSN outage began last Wednesday evening, when Sony took down the service with little explanation. Two days later the hacker collective known as Anonymous--which had previously mounted attacks on the PSN--announced it was not sanctioning action against the PlayStation 3 and PSP's online service.
Then, late Friday, Sony revealed an "external intrusion" was behind the PSN outage, and said that it was conducting an investigation into the incident. Then, late Saturday, the company announced it was rebuilding the PSN infrastructure to ensure "additional security" would be added to the network.
