Today Patrick Seybold of SCEA has confirmed that none of your vital PSN statistics will be affected by the reboot of the network. This means that friends lists, game histories, trophies, and other vital information of your account will be preserved when the network re-launches in the near future.
Here are a few of the more popular questions that SCEA has been greeting since the news broke.
Q: Will our download history/friends list/settings be affected by the PSN downtime?
A: No, they will not.
Q: Will trophies that were earned in single-player offline games during the outage be intact when the service resumes?
A: These trophies are intact and will be re-synched when the network is once again operational.
Q: Will my PS+ cloud saves be retrievable?
A: Yes, once PSN is restored.
Q: What if we have a subscription to PS3 MMOs DC Universe Online or Free Realms? Will we get compensation for that?
A: From Sony Online Entertainment “We apologize for any inconvenience players may have experienced as a result of the recent service interruption. As a global leader in online gam ing, SOE is committed to delivering stable and entertaining games for players of all ages. To thank players for their patience, we will be hosting special events across our game portfolio. We are also working on a “make good” plan for play ers of the PS3 versions of DC Universe Online and Free Realms. Details will be available soon on the individual game web sites and forums.”
Q: Will there be a good will gesture for the time we haven’t been able to utilize PSN/Qriocity?
A: We are currently evaluating ways to show appreciation for your extra ordinary patience as we work to get these services back online.
Thank you for your continued feed back.
