Sony restores PlayStation Network in full
Back from the hack
Sony has announced all PlayStation network functionality – including access to the PlayStation Store – will be fully restored by the end of the week.
While a few areas in Asia will still have features missing - namely countries with very protective regulatory bodies - those of us in the UK can finally get shopping again. This also means recent titles such as Dirt 3, which requires users to register through the PSN Store, will finally enable users to enjoy on-line gameplay.
On-line services have been down for almost two months after millions of users' details were stolen in the PSN hacking fiasco. Although parts of the service were restored earlier this month, access to the PlayStation store has been unavailable.
With the service back on-line, all of those affected should be handed their promised freebies for the inconvenience, which includes a couple of games and trials to other services. ®
So it's up now?
Are you running a sweep on how long this time?
Just in time.
I'm sure its a coincidence.
Coze they would have got crucified if they hadn't.
That's odd then because I managed to reset my password on Saturday! I did it on the website.
Sony back online...
...until the next hack occurs
no longer the case
> will encourage game developers to host their own content on their own servers.
Pretty sure now Sony requires developers to only host their games on Sony's servers (sure M$ requires). I guess one edge to PC is its not a locked down walled garden set up only to monetize your paying sheeple.
