Sony To Fully Restore PSN Features Today
In the news that every PlayStation 3 and PSP owner has been waiting for, Sony Corporation and Sony Computer Entertainment have today confirmed that Sony Network Entertainment International will fully restore all PlayStation Network services today June 2, 2011. This will go live across the Americas, Europe/PAL territories and Asia, excluding Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea. In addition to that, the company will also reinstate Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity support, for PlayStation 3, PSP, VAIO and other PCs.
Sony are still hammering out all of the final details and live dates of their “Welcome Back” package programs that will be extended to all registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity account members. These offers will differ from region to region, but are all likely to entail some kind of free game promotion, such as was announced for Europe, where users will receive two free games from a selection of five Sony titles. Whilst it will be great to see PSN services resume fully, will many Sony users feel severely burned by recent events? Only time will tell how successful the restoration will be.
Announcements regarding the full restoration in Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea as well as for the remaining services on Qriocity will be made as soon as these are available.
