The return of the PlayStation Store is no longer a moving target, as Sony officially announced today that it will fully restore PSN services by the end of this week in North America, Europe, and certain parts of Asia. The planned rollout excludes Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea, due to complications Sony is dealing with in the aforementioned regions.
In appreciation of customer loyalty, Sony will also be handing out its promised “Welcome Back” incentives soon after the Store returns, which include free games and PS Plus access.
“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. “We appreciate the patience and support shown during this time.”
