The Japanese government is still giving Sony a hard time over the PSN outage, two months after the fact. Sony still hasn’t been allowed to bring PSN back online until some assurances are made. Unfortunately, these are the same assurances the Japanese government has been requesting since May and Sony isn’t even providing a time frame for their implementation.
“We met with Sony on 6th May and 13th, and basically we want two things from them,” read a statement by Japanese official Kazushige Nobutani made back when authorities started their inquiries. “The first is preventative measures. As of 13th May, Sony was incomplete in exercising measures that they said they will do on the 1st May press conference.” We’re not sure what we’d prefer under the circumstances, safer eventual PSN or functional PSN right now. All we know is there may finally be an explanation for the recent increased Xbox 360 sales in Japan.
