PSN PlayStation Network will be back up Monday in Japan, Tuesday in US and Europe

As the PlayStation Network (PSN) outage enters its fourth day, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Sources suggest that some major restructuring work has almost been completed, and the servers will start to be switched back on in the next 24 hours or so. It’s believed that Japan will be first to get service restored, some time on Monday, with the US and Europe following on Tuesday. If those timings prove to be correct, the network will have been out for almost a week.
With spring break hitting this week, the PSN downtime has come at the worst possible moment for many gamers. There are still few details of the exact nature of the outage, other than the suggestion that Sony deliberately shut it down in response to an ‘external intrusion’ event. In other words, hackers didn’t pull the network down, but Sony did, probably because they were worried about what the hackers either had done or might do.
It sounds like Sony has had to undertake some major work to put the network back into working order, and potentially to close off the methods used by hackers. The identity of those hackers remains uncertain, with most fingers pointing (not with a great deal of evidence) at offshoots of the main Anonymous group (with the latter having denied responsibility). Sony will be keen to get the network back up as soon as possible, so you can be sure that the company will have working as fast as possible to restore service.

Article says May 3rd, posted May 3rd. It says 4th day. This is extremely old news. To be the 4th day, you should have posted this on the 25th of April.
