Sony Restores PlayStation Network Services And Music Unlimited Powered by Qriocity Services


Sony announced today that Sony Network Entertainment International (SNEI) will fully restore all PlayStation Network services in the Americas, Europe/PAL territories and Asia, excluding Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea by the end of this week.

The company will also resume Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PlayStation 3 (PS3 ), PSP (PlayStation Portable), VAIO and other PCs. The company will also provide details for Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea as well as the remaining services on Qriocity as they become available.

Sony said it has implemented security enhancements to the network infrastructure, as well as conducted testing of the payment process and commerce functions. The first phase of PlayStation Network and Qriocity restoration began on May 15 in the Americas and Europe/PAL territories, followed by Japan and Asian countries and regions on May 28, when the company brought partial services back online. With this partial restoration users were able to access to some of the services such as online game play, account management, friend lists and chat functionality were restored. The full restoration of PlayStation Network as well as part of services to become available on Qriocity will include:

- Full functionality on PlayStation Store
- In-game commerce
- Ability to redeem vouchers and codes
- Full functionality on Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PS3, PSP, VAIO and other PCs
- Full functionality on Media Go

Users can now purchase and download games and video content from the PlayStation Store on PS3 or PSP. In addition, users will have full access to Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity through PS3, PSP, VAIO and other PC?s. Service restoration of Video on Demand powered by Qriocity and Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for a variety of network-enabled Sony devices will be announced later, Sony added.

"We have been conducting additional testing and further security verification of our commerce functions in order to bring the PlayStation Network completely back online so that our fans can again enjoy the first class entertainment experience they have come to love," said Kazuo Hirai, Executive Deputy President, Sony Corporation. "We appreciate the patience and support shown during this time."

The company will be offering customers a "Welcome Back" package of services and premium content to all registered PlayStation Network and Qriocity account services.

The theft of information on 77 million PlayStation accounts and millions more from a PC-based gaming network angered many users.

Sony has said it expects the hacking to drag down operating profit by 14 billion yen ($172 million) in the current financial year, including costs for boosting security measures.
