Phased restoration of PlayStation Network has started


7:18 PM on 05.14.2011



[Update: PlayStation Network restored in the United States and Canada.]

So it turns out that the PlayStation Network is getting restored STARTING TODAY! Sony sent out a press release detailing the restoration and Sony's Kazuo Hirai gives a round down of what to expect in the video above.

The phased restoration will be on a country by country basis and begins with America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.

Here's what will first be restored to PlayStation Network and Qriocity users:

  • Sign-in for PlayStation®Network and Qriocity services, including the resetting of passwords
  • Restoration of online game-play across PS3 and PSP
  • Playback rental video content, if within rental period, of PlayStation Network Video Delivery Service on PS3, PSP and MediaGo
  • Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity, for current subscribers, on PS3 and PC
  • Access to 3rd party services such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and MLB.tv
  • 'Friends' category on PS3, including Friends List, Chat Functionality, Trophy Comparison, etc
  • PlayStation Home

The PlayStation.Blog has a heat map of the US showing which state has restored PlayStation Network services. At the moment, all the states are still white but the second you see your state illuminated is the moment you can jump back on and play with your friends. PlayStation's Patrick Seybold says it will "take several hours to restore PSN throughout the entire country."

We'll have more updates for you as they come through.
