For almost a month people have been asking when the PlayStation Network will be back on, well a recent article posted on Bloomberg suggests that Sony’s Shigenori Yoshida thinks that the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be fully back online by May 31.
PS3 gamers should understand that this does not mean that they will not be able to play online until this date, all it means is that initially there will be a partial restoration of services and by May 31 all PSN and Qriocity services will be back up and running.

Chances are we will see the PlayStation Network back up within the next week or so, we cannot confirm whether all PSN features will be fully working straight away, however as long as gamers can play some of their favorite games online once again people will be happy.
Shigenori Yoshida told Bloomberg this news via a phone call, as you would expect no further details were given, however at least we know that by the end of this month everything should be back to normal (hopefully).
As and when we hear more we will keep you posted, in the mean time tell us what you have been doing to keep yourself busy during the 2011 PSN outage.
