PlayStation Network Back Online (In Theory)
Today the PlayStation Network (PSN) has finally gone back online.
After being down for nearly four weeks, Sony has launched the new and improved PSN. This version is supposedly much more secure and up-to-date than the previous version. I wouldn’t know, as I am still unable to log on. There seems to be some problems already, as some people in my region have been able to log on, while others have not. I’m not really worried about it, as I’m sure it will be sorted out within 24 hours.
The system will not be entirely restored at first, but rather phased in over time. At first online play will be brought back and then gradually the rest, concluding with the PlayStation Store. All users will have to change their passwords once they are back online and people worried about identity theft will be offered free subscription to companies that can help protect against this.
Lastly a reward will be given to all users to compensate for not running out and buying an Xbox while the network was down. This reward will be different in each region and should be officially announced in the coming days. Let’s all cross our fingers and hope our gift is an Xbox.
