Welcome to week three of the ongoing PlayStation Network outage. Screens across the country are dark, gamers are being forced to play in campaign mode – or to just go outside – and potentially billions of dollars have been lost. And now some more bad news, both for Sony and PSN fans worldwide: At least one video game developer is saying that the PSN blackout has directly affected its production schedule.

"I would be lying if I said the problems with PSN hadn't caused us some problems," Kei Horono, a staffer at From Software, told the tech site CVG. "But we are in contact with Sony and are aiming to meet a street date of October 11." Horono was talking specifically about a video game called Dark Souls – the follow-up to cult favorite Demon's Souls. He did not provide further details.
