Sony Playstation Network fully Restored by end of Week

Sony announces end of Playstation Network outage.

Sony announced today plans to restore the Playstation Network completely by the end of the week. Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea still have longer to wait. Sony will also resume Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PS3, PSP, VAIO and other PCs. Details for Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea as well as the remaining services on Qriocity will be announced as they become available.

The first phase of PlayStation Network and Qriocity restoration began on May 15th in the Americas and Europe/PAL territories, followed by Japan and Asian countries and regions on May 28th, when the company brought partial services back online. With this partial restoration users were able to access some of the services such as online game play, account management, friend lists and chat functionality.

“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.”

Let's hope for Sony that the security enhancements are paying off. Sony shut down the Playstation network after a hacker attack on April 19th. It took Sony over a month to get back to normal.
