Sony to Fully Restore PlayStation Network by End of the Week
Sony has announced that its PlayStation Network will receive full restoration by the end of the week, marking the fifth week that the network has been breached and shutdown for security purposes. This falls short on the initial May 31st target made by Sony, and not all regions will be getting the restoration just yet. Within Asia, Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea hasn't been given an actual date for its network to be up and running.
Reuters - Sony Corp said on Tuesday it was not certain when it could fully restore PlayStation Network videogame services in Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea, five weeks after a massive network security breach forced the company to shut them down.
In the wake of this massive security breach, consumers have expressed concern over the safety of their data, with some making the jump towards Sony's direct competitor, Microsoft's Xbox Live service. In an attempt to retain customer loyalty, the restoration of the PlayStation network will also include a Welcome Back package, which varies according to your region.
