Sony announced today that Sony Network Entertainment International, at the end of the week, will restore all PlayStation services to various countries. Including the Americas, Asia excluding Japan, Europe/PAL areas, Hong Kong and South Korea. Details for Japan will be released when they are available.
“The full restoration of PlayStation Network as well as part of services to become available on Qriocity will include:
• Full functionality on PlayStation®Store
• In-game commerce
• Ability to redeem vouchers and codes
• Full functionality on Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PS3, PSP, VAIO and
• Full functionality on Media Go”
So far Sony has had a bunch of dates for the full services to come back online, but they postpone it to tweak something. So is Sony going to own up to it, and actually reveal the last bits of the network that is down?
“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,” said Kazuo Hirai, Executive Deputy President, Sony Corporation. “We appreciate the patience and support shown during this time.”
We’ll keep tabs on Sony’s blog and update on any information we find.
