PSN begins phased in restore of service

Written by David Stellmack

Follows the release of 3.61 Firmware update
The restoration of the PlayStation Network is now in full swing, with Sony projecting to have the full network restored by the end of May. The phased-in restore first requires the new 3.61 firmware which must first be applied to your console. The restoration of services will be phased in with Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East, in that order.

The following services will available during the phased-in network restore:

- Sign-in for PlayStation®Network and Qriocity services, including the resetting of passwords
- Restoration of online game-play across PS3 and PSP
- Playback rental video content, if within rental period, of PlayStation Network Video Delivery Service on PS3, PSP and MediaGo
- Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity, for current subscribers, on PS3 and PC
- Access to 3rd party services such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and MLB.tv
- 'Friends' category on PS3, including Friends List, Chat Functionality, Trophy Comparison, etc
- PlayStation Home

Sony is forcing a password change upon being able to get logged back into the service. Using the provided roll out maps it would appear that North America and Europe up and functional again and we hear that other countries are coming online as the servers continue populating.

As part of the announcement of PSN going like again, President and Group Chief Executive Office Kazuo Hirai has made a video where he shared his apologies for the situation and talks of a “Welcome Back Package” that will help users get back to using their services. Beyond that, in the video he talks of new security measures and an early warning detection system that will make things more secure in the future.

While the first point is true because of the short memory from console gamer, I dont see how Sony did anything even close to a "good job"

The service is back up, its improved, and they gave some stuff away. Good Job Sony! Nothing close to that would've happened on PC.

Thats true, if a hardware company gets raped by hackers, pc users still can use their pc as if nothing happened.

Good job Sony for being arrogant and leaving servers with security issues unpatched. Good job for letting the personal info of over 77 million people into other hands. Good job for not encrypting debit card info. Good job!!

You really believe that one of the largest security breaches in history is just going to forgotten in three weeks.

That People are just going to take there two free 4 year old games and forget this happened.

Sure it may no longer be front page news.
But every time people talk about 360 VS PS3. they will bring this up just like they still bring up the RROD.
