Sony: PlayStation Store to Return May 24
According to a recent article by Gamasutra, Sony has released a memo to its game developer and publishing partners that it plans on having the PlayStation Network completely up and running within the week.
Starting Tuesday, May 24, gamers should expect to be able to jump back into the Store just like normal. It will be the perfect time to take up Sony’s offer on some free apology games while you’re at it.
“We thank you for your patience as we work to resume service of the PlayStation Store,” wrote PSN content manager Jack Osorno to developer partners.
When the Store reopens, Sony said it will distribute content that was originally scheduled to release April 26 with two other releases occurring on the 27th and again May 3.
“If there are concerns, we are willing to consider adjusting the release date of your content on this schedule,” says Osorno. “Adjustments will be made on a case by case basis.”
The launch of the PlayStation Store is one of the final steps to bringing the PlayStation Network back to full operation. Sony has said many times that it expected the network to be fully operational before the end of May.
