Sony hopes to bring the network back online 'by May 31st'

After the disappointment of PSN failing to hit its first target recovery date last week, Sony has now admitted that the service may not be back online for another three weeks.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Shigenori Yoshida – who is referred to as a 'spokesman' – has said that Sony is now aiming to bring PSN back online by May 31st.

The service first went down on April 20th. If May 31st does prove to be the day it's resumed, that will mean PSN will have endured total downtime of six weeks.
