PSN is Finally Back Up, Partially

Good news to gamers and particularly Playstation 3 owners the PSN is finally back online. The main functions like online gameplay, chat functions, Qriocity services and of course Playstation Home are operational. It's a relief for gamers since the Playstation went down on April 20th, almost 4 weeks ago. Playstation Users will have to install the mandatory PSN update 3.61 and change their passwords on the PS3 they originally registered on. For gamers who do not have their original PS3 they can change their passwords through an authenticated email from Sony.

Below is a map indicating what areas in the U.S. that currently able to connect to the Playstation Network. (green means PSN operational)

PSN online announcement from the one and only Kazuo Hirai, Representative Corporate Executive Officer and Executive Deputy President of Sony.

The store won`t be up till the 31st though :(. But at least the 30 free days of PS PLus will get me early access to the Uncharted 3 Beta :)

When will the Playstation Plus free trial start?

How do I sign up or is it automatic?

Do I have to enter my credit card to sign up?

Wouldn't do that if I were you. Not after what's happened lately.

Sony said they will reveal the "Welcome Back Package" (which includes the 30 day PSN Plus and free stuff) and tell you all about it later on. Hang tight for any news.

Hey! Looks who's hacked again! Yep, that's right.

The url looks weird, cause it's translated by Google.

Ah, I never get tired of this.
