Sony has finally responded to their 5 day outage, and things are looking very grim for Playstation users. A recent update from Patrick Seybold on the PSN Blog, offered a vague but disturbing realization.

He is quoted as saying:

I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don’t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.

As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we’re working to get them back online quickly. We’ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience.

This means that the Playstation Network could easily be down for another couple of days, or possibly even a week. Here is hoping that Sony will be able to get the systems back up and running soon. I know plenty of people that want to play their copies of Portal 2 in cooperative play.
