Sony has delayed the restart of its PlayStation network.

Sony had promised to get the online network for video game players up and running within a week after it was learned that hackers had gained access to the personal data of network users.

A blog by Sony says it's now conducting further testing of the system.

Sony has promised users that once the network is running again, it will offer a welcome back program including free content and coverage through an identity theft service.
