PlayStation Store Returning May 24th


Gamasutra is reporting that Sony has informed developers that the PlayStation Store will be back up for business on Tuesday, May 24th. If all goes as planned Sony will begin rolling out content that was originally set to release on April 26th, nearly a month ago. We can then expect May 3rd’s Store update ( which included the release of Seed Studios’ Under Siege ) to happen three days later. More update catch ups are set for May 31 and June 3. Sony has also told developers that they will move up the release schedule if need be.

“If there are concerns, we are willing to consider adjusting the release date of your content on this schedule,” says Osorno. “Adjustments will be made on a case by case basis.”

Once the PlayStation Store has returned gamers will be able to redeem the 2 free games from Sony’s ‘Welcome Back” campaign.

    So basically I cant use my ps3 for over a month by the time this returns. I cant currently redeem online pass’s. I cant acess my download history to download games I want to play (Hard drive is full so I have to delete and re download)) Sorry but this is just horrible. Then because Im a loyal sony supporter I get nothing from the welcome back program. psshhhh Sony love dying

    Mmm, interesting. That’s sooner rather than later. This would be great since I was expecting it to be back until June and this will give me an extra week to jumpstart my reviews schedule.

    OH well… missed it by that much? I hope there’s a delay, so I can win the bet :D

    Seriously now. That’s great news, I’m expecting all that free content we’ll be given to fill a lot of my free time. Also some releases got my attention!

    ps: I haven’t played online either, I don’t usually and I haven’t since the PSN is back up. So far it made no difference to me as well.

    I think even after I changed my password I still didn’t connect to it. lol

    I haven’t been playing much of anything really. Maybe I should try MK online, because I haven’t, but honestly, I’m having a fun time with the brand new glitch free Fallout New Vegas, I’m thinking of “platinuming” it.

    I haven’t been online since PSN was back. Not much of an online player really.

    Oh yeah… that’s true… Well I guess I’ll just stick to playing Fallout then.

    Sooner than I expected it to return… Good news!

    @Oly: Still, this is rumor and speculation or at least wishful thinking on Sony’s part until the store is actually back up…

    Sweet! Cannot wait to confirm my L.A. Noire preorder bonuses and download me some free Dead Nation and Wipeout.
