It seems like every day the rumors fly about when PlayStation Network will be back up and running. We hope you're not holding your breath, because Sony's fall guy senior press liaison, Patrick Seybold, has checked in again on the PlayStation blog to let us know they're aiming for...well, sometime. According to Seybold:

"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 the incredibly complex system."

Seybold goes on to say that yada yada yada they'll update us when they know more. We won't know for a while how this outage is affecting PS3 sales of multiplayer-heavy titles like this week's Brink, but we have to assume multiplatform users are opting for other systems right now. And that can't be good for anyone's bottom line. [via PlayStation Blog]
