PlayStation Store now Live!

PlayStation Store now LIVE!

After more than a month of waiting, the PlayStation Store is once again restored- taken down in the aftermath of an external intrusion that took place April 20th, 2011. Although the store is back up,  some people might have a hard time trying to get in due to the high amount of users attempting to access the store immediately upon it’s relaunch.

In addition, Sony’s promised Welcome Back package is notably MIA- supposedly in the final stages of testing but available for all to enjoy soon enough. For a brief reminder of what that package curtails, we have an article detailing it here.
The next PlayStation Store and PlayStation Plus update will be this Friday, June 3, and then we will roll right into some special publishes starting next week for E3 (so be sure to check back daily!), says PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen.

My money’s riding that the update coming tomorrow will be the one that includes the Welcome Back bonuses, or at least prepare for the offer. Either way, we’ll be sure to keep updating on any new developments.
It looks like the PSN outage saga is beginning its long descent into obscurity, and I’ll bet Sony wants it that way- between the digital equivalent of a smash and grab and over a month of bad publicity, the tech giant has to be reeling from the damage.

Be sure to check out the source link, as it includes an expansive list of new content in the store that covers everything that missed its intended release due to the outage.

    1. Yeah, with all the people trying to access it at once- the servers are having a bit of a hard time dealing with the stress.
      The service is back up but it might take a while for everyone to be able to get in.
