PSN and Sony/Microsoft repair centers hit by quake in Japan
The earthquake that rocked Japan a few days ago keeps causing damage to the game industry. This time, graver than game delays. People trying to connect to Sony’s PlayStation Network may have problems in doing so. It is at this moment unclear what the issue(s) is/are as Sony has not given any details on the matter. Furthermore, the company’s PlayStation information call center and repair center have experienced interruptions as well, with no additional information on when they might be back up and running. The other giant to suffer the consequences of mother nature’s wrath was Microsoft. The company’s repair center located in Fukushima has been shut down for the moment with no further details on when it will resume normal service. In addition, a “Gold Member Starter Kit,” which was scheduled for a March 17 release, has been postponed for the time being.
