PSN Welcome Back

RUMOR UPDATE: PlayStation Store Possibly Returning on May 24th (UNTRUE)


Obviously, with today being May 24th, this rumor has been slashed. We still have no updates for U.S. gamers, but the official European PlayStation blog manager James Gallagher has this to say today:

“The latest information I have on PlayStation Store is that we are aiming to have it live by the end of May. Contrary to popular rumours, it will not be reopening tomorrow but we will let you know here as soon as the date is confirmed.”

More than likely, this information is the same for the U.S. PlayStation store, too.

As always, we’ll keep you posted.

Original Post – May 22, 2011:

Gaming website Gamasutra is saying that Sony is letting its game developers and publishing partners know that the PlayStation Store will be up and running on Tuesday, May 24th.

Reportedly, Sony has sent out a memo written by PSN content manager Jack Osorno to said publishers and developers.

All previously missed store updates will be done as follows:

  • May 24th will receive April 26th’s update
  • Three days later on May 27th, May 3rds update will go live
  • May 31st will say May 10ths originally planned update
  • June 3rd will be the final irregular update missed on May 17th
  • The PlayStation Store updates will return to a regular, every Tuesday routine starting June 7th

So, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable gamers should be quite busy over the next couple of weeks if this information is to be true, what with all of the new stuff to download on top of the free games from the “Welcome Back” package. Keep in mind, however, that no official announcement has been made.PSN Welcome Back
