PlayStation Network coming back, slowly at first

1 May 2011


The beleaguered PlayStation Network, which was robbed to pieces by cyber-burglars a couple of weeks ago, is coming back soon. Well, some of it is.

Sony say that they have boosted their security and have apologised again for the hack, in which the user names, email addresses and log-in details of approximately 77 million PSN users were half-inched by techno-crooks.

The apology came from PlayStation head Kazuo Hirai, and he and two other executives even did a deep bow in an attempt to show how sorry they were. Hirai said: “These illegal attacks obviously highlight the widespread problem with cyber-security”, adding, “We apologise deeply for causing great unease and trouble to our users”.

In a statement, PlayStation have said that a phased restoration by region of PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will begin, with gaming, music and video services to be turned on first.

The full statement can be read at the official PlayStation site.
