We have all been waiting for the Playstation Network to be fully restored and the wait might be finally over. According to Sony, this Friday June 3rd, PSN and all services will be fully back online. Sony had promised earlier restoration dates but had to postpone services for ongoing maintenance. According to this Kotaku post, Sony announced that PSN will be restored 100% in all places except Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea ... those regions will have to wait a will longer.
For the rest of us, PSN will be returning soon with all features including Playstation Store, PSP services, Music Unlimited, Qriocity and third party functionalities.
"We have been conducting additional testing and further security verification of our commerce functions in order to bring the PlayStation Network completely back online so that our fans can again enjoy the first class entertainment experience they have come to love ... we appreciate the patience and support shown during this time." - Kaz Hirai.Hopefully this Friday is the true restoration date so PS3 users can get their services back. Remember to get you free games from Sony's "Welcome Back" program. Stay tune for more.
