PlayStation Network to return in full this week

PlayStation Network logoTwo weeks ago the PlayStation Network was restored, but much of the functionality still isn't in place, most notably the ability to buy games and other content from the PlayStation Store. Though a specific date still isn't known, Sony nows says that full functionality will be returned to PSN at some point this week.

The full list of features that will be returning includes the PS Store, in-game commerce, the ability to redeem vouchers and codes, the "music unlimited" service from Qriocity, and full functionality for the Media Go PC software. The timeline of this week affects PSN users in the Americas, as well as Europe and much of Asia; Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea will see full service restored at some point in the future.

Sony also says that the service will be getting some security and infrastructure upgrades, above and beyond the recently announced complimentary year of identity theft protection.

"We have been conducting additional testing and further security verification of our commerce functions in order to bring the PlayStation Network completely back online so that our fans can again enjoy the first class entertainment experience they have come to love," Sony executive President Kazuo Hirai said in a statement on the PlayStation Blog. "We appreciate the patience and support shown during this time."

When the store does go up, users will finally be able to access the Welcome Back packages from Sony, which include two free games, as well as other freebies like virtual items in PlayStation Home and extended subscriptions for PS+ users.
