PSN Update – We’re coming back!
Sony are gradually bringing the PSN network back up in North America and in Europe. There’s an update for the PSN, but we knew that was going to happen.
So this is what we’ve got from the Sony Blog
Thank you for your patience and encouragement over the last few weeks. As covered in the post from earlier today, you can now update the firmware on your PS3 and change your password. Kazuo Hirai just announced that we have begun the phased restoration by region of some of the services, starting with online multiplayer functionality.
Please note that these services will take a bit of time to be turned on and rolled out to the whole region. The process has begun and some countries are being turned on now, so please be patient as we reach you.
In the meantime, now’s a great time to get your PS3′s firmware updated and change your password, both of which are required to get online.
So we’ll be waiting with baited breath for everything to come back up. You can do the update before the PSN is back up in your area, I have. And best to get in there before everyone tries doing it all at once.
I’m just happy it’ll be back up in time for L.A. Noire. W00T!
