PlayStation Network To Be Fully Restored By End of Week

May 30, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

Sony returned the PlayStation Network back to full authority just about two weeks ago, and it wasn’t long before online games were flooded with bloodthirsty players who waited weeks to return back to the battlefield. However, the PlayStation Store and several other key functionalities have remained unavailable since the disaster last month, which has given reason for doubt. It’s been a day-to-day adventure just waiting for these functions we’ve all taken for granted to come back online, and thankfully this dark chapter in Sony’s saga will be over by the end of the week.

An official news release by Sony has detailed a full return of all PlayStation Network related features by the end of the week. Included are the following, as detailed by the statement:

  • Full functionality on PlayStation®Store
  • In-game commerce
  • Ability to redeem vouchers and codes
  • Full functionality on Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PS3, PSP, VAIO and other PCs
  • Full functionality on Media Go

Just in the nick of time. E3 begins next week and it’d be somewhat embarrassing if the PlayStation Network was crippled during the convention. Sony usually posts dozens of E3 media on the PlayStation Store throughout the course of the week, so you can imagine the sense of urgency at the Sony headquarters. It’ll be great to have everything back online, and if it’s all as secure as people are saying it is, then it should have no problem staying up for the years to come.
