With the business week almost up, the PlayStation Network is still down. Sony had promised some services would be restored this week. According to a new update on the PlayStation.Blog, Sony is in their “final stages of internal testing of the new system.”

The company said it’s “an important step towards restoring PlayStation Network and Qriocity services.” They’re working to “enhance protections of your personal data.”

Additionally, they’ve detailed their complimentary offering in an identity theft protection program in the United States. They will make other programs available in different countries and regions. The United States program includes cyber monitoring, priority access to private investigators, and a $1 million dollar identity theft insurance policy per user. Read up on that here.

Sony CEO Howard Stringer published a letter on the PlayStation.Blog, as well, where he apologies to consumers and promises to “welcome you back to the fun” in “the coming days” when “we will restore service to the networks.” Read the whole thing here.

As always, stay tuned. You’ll be able to resume your Portal 2 co-op campaign soon.

    So what? If they get jacked again all users get paid a milli in compensation? I’m almost 100 percent sure I’ve got the wrong impression but that’s what it sounds like.
