After being taken down for more than a month, the PlayStation Network finally resumed services. Although the PlayStation Store was disabled for a while in the beggining, it is now up as well. So as of now, all services including its music service, called Qriocity, have been enabled, except the Welcome Back package. The service resumed first in some areas of America, Europe, and parts of Asia, and is now reported up in all parts of the world.
Gamers await free game bundles
The new store comes online with a ton of content that includes trial games, free games, DLC packs, and avatars. Players weren’t able to make purchases all the while that the network was disabled. Several game launches were affected. For example, gamers couldn’t use any redeem codes for the popular Dirt 3 title without the PlayStation Store. The news comes just when some of Sony’s other services have been under attack by other hacking groups. The Welcome Back program that includes the option to download a few games for free and the trial PSN+ feature is expected to be made available sometime soon.
