Sony Has Begun Restoring Access to Its PlayStation Network


Sony Has Begun Restoring Access to Its PlayStation Network

Nearly a month after a massive security breach, Sony has announced through a video by its Representative Corporate Executive Officer and Executive Deputy President, Kazuo Hirai, that it has begun a phased, region by region restoration of its PlayStation Network, starting with the online multiplayer functionality. Users can now update their PS3s' firmware and change their passwords.

And in a subsequent update posted on the PlayStation blog, Sony has noted an extremely heavy load of passwords resets, and thus had to turn off services for about 30 minutes to clear the queue.

The restoration will start in the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand; followed by the Middle East and East Asia.
