Citing a news story in Japanese publication Mainichi Digital, the fine folks at Adriasang report that Sony still plans on relaunching the PlayStation Network and other associated services in the month of May – even as the clock runs out on the month. With the last day of May coming up fast next Tuesday it is still a possibility but a fleeting one.
During its earnings briefing yesterday Sony of Japan said that they have not yet given up on a relaunch in May. Mainichi Digital reports that Sony officials said of the Japanese service, "We have not given up on a May restart."
Nikkei reported last week that Sony was planning to relaunch by the end of the month, but the company has been struggling to deliver information on security requested by the Japanese government and credit card companies.
Hopefully Sony will have PSN up in Japan soon, seeing as Europe and North America have already had the service restored partially.
