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. ®
