Sony PlayStation Network is Back Online

Its about time! After three weeks, Sony Corporation announces the PlayStation online network service has been restored after hackers forced Sony to shut it down.

The announcement was made by Sony Corporation Executive Deputy President Kazuo Hirai (In the video you see below). “The services are being restored in phases, and I am pleased to say that the first phase has been launched in most regions around the world,” Hirai said in a video statement.

Sony rebuilt the entire PlayStation Network following a breach of its security that resulted in the compromise of 24.6 million user accounts. The changes are being delivered in a new system update that is restoring online gaming and Qriocity services.

In addition to enhancing security, Sony is also giving PlayStation Network and Qriocity customers a free month of service. And while these measures are a good start, Sony has a lot of work to do to regain user trust.
