Sony announced today full functionality of all PlayStation Network services, including Qriocity, in all territories excluding Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong by week's end. Users have been unable to access all services (due to a network breach by hackers) since April 20th, 2011, although partial restoration of online multiplayer, Netflix and Hulu were restored on May 18th. While aiming for a May 31st restoration, we will have to wait until tomorrow (here in the States) to see if they are available for business. With Tuesdays being Sony's regular publishing date for the PlayStation Store, I'm hopeful (and eager for my freebies). Bullet points from the press release are as follows:
• Full functionality of PlayStation Store
• In-game commerce
• Ability to redeem vouchers and codes
• Full functionality on Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity for PS3, PSP, VAIO and other PCs
• Full functionality on Media Go
