Gamers celebrate full return of PlayStation network

Store restored

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The PlayStation network is back in business, hip hip hooray.

Sony PS3 Slim

Sony announced today that the full restoration has begun, fulfilling a promise made a few days ago that all services would be up and running before the week was up.

Of course, the company had already broken the promise made prior that all would be back before the end of May, but after coming so close, we'll let that one slide. There is too much to catch up on.

So get out those sparkling credit cards, fresh from the advised cancellation, and hand over your new details. What could possibly go wrong? Plus, you'll be able to claim that complimentary welcome back package, Sony promised.

If you're having trouble getting on, it's probably due to busy traffic, however the path should be clear for a weekend of hardcore gaming. Don't worry, you'll be able to rejoin those virtual squadrons soon. ®
