Sony restores all PlayStation Network services


Sony has completed its restoration of the PlayStation Network and Qriocity music service after a data breach forced a shutdown in April.


Most notable is the return of the PlayStation Store, where players can download demos, videos and other content as well as purchase games.

The official PlayStation blog has a very long list of content that has recently been added. Publisher Bethesda Softworks has also confirmed the second piece of DLC for Fallout: New Vegas, titled "Honest Hearts" is now available for PS3.
 
The PlayStation Store went down with the rest of PSN on April 20, when Sony took down the services to battle a massive data breach exposing users' personal information.

Last month, Sony launched an initial restoration of PSN, which brought back user access to accounts and online gameplay.

However, prepare to wait a while to gain access to the PlayStation Store. Destructoid reports users may see error messages as Sony deals with the surge of traffic to the store.

  1. XBOX seems to be a much better choice in the end even though you have to pay for it.

  2. Took them long enough, at least theyre giving everyone 2 free games, that pretty much makes up for it imo.

  5. Finally! I guess that's why I have an XBox though.

    Also, I've been away for a while, but now I'm back! Just leaving this little "P.S." to blogs I enjoy and want to know that I'm still here!
