Playstation Network is Back!... err, almost.

Posted by Terrorized666 on May 15, 2011 at 10:58 AM

Sony's worldwide PSN restoration begins with a U.S. rollout on Saturday, Canada on Sunday, and other countries to follow.

What was nearly a full month of downtime mixed with anguish, anger, and just a pinch of hysteria is finally coming to the end... or the first phase of an end, anyway. As first announced on the official PlayStation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment is rolling out the restart of PlayStation Network across the country, which began in the early evening Pacific Time.

The announcement comes alongside a video from SCE president Kaz Hirai, who again offers his apologies to everyone affected by the downtime/hacker attack, and details the make-good plans the company is launching for members. On top of that, PS3 owners must download and install a new firmware update for the system, which will prompt PSN users to change their passwords before fully logging back in, and can only be changed on the same system the PSN account was activated, or via email confirmation. The PlayStation Store service is not yet up, with the assumption that Sony still plans to get that up and running after getting the rest of the network up.

As of this writing, the rollout just recently reached Canada after starting in the northeast United States. The map viewable in the PS Blog post is only for the U.S., though the European blog has the same announcement.

Well, then... anyone up for some Portal 2 co-op? or even Borderlands co-op?

Yes, because Sony is going to go faster because people will kill themselves if they can't play... What has this world come to...
It will still take some time yet. They are booting servers as they go to make sure they are up and running properly. Expect them all to be running hopefully by the end of the week.

Also, please avoid spamming the '!' it looks childish!!!!!!1!
