Rumor: PlayStation Store Relaunching May 24th

PlayStation Network is back up, but PlayStation Store is still down. While Sony hasn’t given us an official date yet, they may have already revealed the date to developers. Gamasutra heard from an inside source that Sony has sent out a memo to PSN developers, letting them know that the service will be back up starting May 24th.


According to this memo, content will be rolled out every few days to catch up with the schedule. Reopening of the store will include content intended for April 26th, followed by content that was intended for May 3rd on the 27th.  More updates will come May 31st and June 3rd, which will put the store on back on schedule. Some content will be prioritized. For example DLC already available on other platforms.


It will be good to get everything back to normal again after nearly a month of the service being down. Sony will be offering a welcome back package to PlayStation Network members. This package gives members an option between two PS3 and two PSP games, including titles like Little Big Planet (PS3 and PSP), Infamous (PS3), and ModNation Racers (PSP).
