Patrick Seybold, the American executive of Sony has assured users on the PS Blog that they will not suffer any loss of data; including friends lists, settings and download history. The trophies and cloud saves will also be unaffected.
Patrick also stated that they are thinking of ways to show appreciation to the users for their patience.
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 players of the PS3 versions of DC Universe Online and Free Realms.
The PSN was taken down mid of this month due to an external intrusion. Sony is now working with law enforcements to survey the damage done and catch whoever was responsible.
