All PSN Services To Return, But Not To All Regions

Sony has said that all the services on its PlayStation Network platform will be back online by the end of the week, though still not in all regions.

The company said the PlayStation Network, including the PlayStation Store, will be back online in the United States, the UK and the whole of Europe. However, the company said that some PSN services in Asian regions like Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea, will not be online.

The company remained vague on what services will be available in Japan and other Asian markets but information will be provided as it becomes available.

“We have been conducting additional testing and further security verification of our commerce functions in order to bring the PlayStation Network completely back online so that our fans can again enjoy the first class entertainment experience they have come to love,” said Kazuo Hirai, Executive Deputy President, Sony Corporation, AfterDawn reports.

“We appreciate the patience and support shown during this time,” he added. The company has had a turbulent month, suffering attacks not only on its PSN servers but also against websites in Japan, Canada and Greece.

The attack on PSN was by far the worst, with hackers stealing personal data including names, addresses and email IDs of millions of PSN customers worldwide.
