Roughly 20 minutes ago we started receiving feedback suggesting that the PlayStation Network was back up in the UK, now we have tried it out for ourselves and we can confirm that this is true, however not all of the services are currently available.
We tried a few things out and from what we can see the Trophys are online and matchmaking is now possible, however when trying to access the PlayStation Store we were told that maintenance was being carried out.
US gamers have been able to go back online all day and Sony told us that the global restoration process had started, therefore we have been expecting this news for quite a few hours, let’s just hope people in the UK don’t experience the problems with the mandatory firmware update which we spoke about earlier.
We have not had a chance to try out all of the PlayStation Services just yet, nor have we had a chance to test out how well the network is running in regards to matchmaking, therefore we would appreciate some feedback from our UK readers in the comments section below.
Is the PSN up in the UK for you? If so, is matchmaking stable for you?
