Sony finally fully restoring its PSN and Qriocity services

Sony finally fully restoring its PSN and Qriocity servicesSony has gotten a lot of heat lately for all the hackery to the Playstation Network that kept it from being online since April. Today Sony announced it will fully restore all PSN and Qriocity services today (June 2) in the Americas, Europe/PAL territories and Asia, but this doesn’t include Japan, Hong Kong, or South Korea. Gamers in either Japan, Hong Kong, or South Korea just need to wait a little longer and hope Sony will have them back online soon.
If you’re a PS3 gamer like I am, you’ll be happy to also note that the details of Sony’s “Welcome Back” package program offered to all registered PSN and Qriocity account services will be announced from each region today as well.
