PlayStation Store is Back Online With Loads of New Content


Finally it appears that the PlayStation Network drama is coming to an end!

More than a month after being taken down after hackers breached the system and compromised the accounts of millions of PSN users, the PlayStation Store is officially open for business once again. PSN service, along with Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity, will be fully restored in the Americas, Europe/PAL territories and Asia (excluding Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea) by the end of today, Thursday, June 2.

In the U.S., the PlayStation Store is up and running as I type this (though you can expect some error messages as everyone crams in all at once), and there is a wealth of new content waiting for PS3 and PSP gamers to buy right out of the gate.

On the PS3, 11 new games are available, including the likes of Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls, Sega Rally Online Arcade, Under Siege and Red Johnson’s Chronicles. Six new demos have also been uploaded, headlined by Red Faction Armageddon and MotorStorm: Apocalypse.

On the PSP front, the backlogged Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars finally makes it onto the digital storefront, along with Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean, a few other titles, and a collection of new Minis.

Loads of DLC, videos, price drops/sale items, PlayStation Plus benefits and other content is ready for your digital consumption as well, the full list of which can be viewed at the PlayStation blog. Another store update is scheduled for Friday, June 3, and the ‘Welcome Back’ content will be available soon.
