LOS ANGELES (AP) - The outage of Sony Corp.’s PlayStation Network ran into its sixth day Monday as the company said it has no timeframe for restoring the Internet-based system that links users in live game play worldwide.

In a blog post Monday, Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold said he couldn’t predict when rebuilding work would be completed, but that it’s a “time intensive process.”

The company said on Thursday that it would take a “full day or two” to restore service after it first shut down the system that serves both PlayStations and its Qriocity entertainment services the previous day.

It subsequently blamed the outage on an “external intrusion” and said it would have to rebuild its system to add security measures and strengthen its infrastructure.
