Sony PlayStation Network to be fully restored by weekend
Sony plans to restore all its PlayStation Network services by this weekend in all regions except Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong, the company said Tuesday.
Sony will also resume its Music Unlimited service on its Qriocity audio and video streaming service for the PlayStation3 (PS3) and PlayStation Portable (PSP) gaming platforms, Vaio laptops and other PCs.
Details for Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea, as well as for the remaining services on Qriocity, will be announced as they become available.
Sony pulled the plug on the PlayStation Network and Qriocity service on April 20, a day after detecting what it later called a "very sophisticated" intrusion. The cyber attacks exposed personal data of about 77 million users.
