PlayStation Store Deadline Day: PS3 Update preview before live status

By Posted 24 May 2011, 09:48

You won’t need us to remind you that today is a very important day for PS3 gamers. It is apparently the day when Sony will resume service of their PlayStation Store, and we have details on some of the content that will be available once it goes live.

Sony has yet to confirm whether or not the PSN ‘welcome back’ package will be available today as well, but an article over at PlayStation Lifestyle has revealed the confirmed content that you will be able to download when Sony presses the PS Store switch.

Content includes demos for Motorstorm Apocalypse, Red Faction: Armageddon, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, while there are also several PSN games such as Beyond Good and Evil HD, Under Siege and Outland. On the DLC side of things, there will be add-on material for Crysis 2, Rock Band, Fallout New Vegas, Shift 2 and Zen Pinball.

They have also listed rumored content for Mortal Kombat too, so that should interest those of you who have the game on either the PS3 or Xbox 360. While the above content is most welcome, its still not better than the 30 day PSN+ subscription and free games that Sony has promised. The sooner we know when that is coming, the better.

What are your thoughts on the first batch of content on the PlayStation Store since the outage? Is the PS Store back up in your area yet?

    Despite the rumour last week that ths PS Store would be up today, 24th May, Sony released a statement just two days ago saying it NEVER sent the memo, and there is no planned day, aside from it being “by the end of the month”.

    Looks like this is a vicious rumour that has got the hopes up of millions, and because of it, if and when Sony fail to turn it on today, they themselves, through no fault of their own, will face the backlash.

    Reply to Mike: It technically is Sony’s fault. They may try to deny sending a memo regarding the update of the store being today (24th), but they’re still obligated to give people a reasonable time frame. “By the end of the month” is so cryptic it causes confusion and even though it allows them some breathing room, isn’t the way a large company should act. I guess since they’re so big, Sony thinks they can get away with it. If only the XBOX 360 wasn’t of such low build quality, I’d switch, simply because Sony’s PR are so terrible.

    I have received a message from Playstation in request the to authenticity of the rumours being spread across the net that PSN store is returning today and the short version is don’t believe everything you read. I personally would love to have the PSN Store back online but I am not holding my breath until it happens.

    Not up yet and to be honest I think what we’re being offered as ‘compensation’ is a little lacking if u take into account the inconvenience of it all…changing passwords and security to all other accounts and the like. Also, offering free downloads of games isn’t really costing them much, sure they will lose a bit of revenue but the cost to them is minimal. Personally I think it’s disgraceful the way we have been treated by Sony, both in the speed information was shared about the hack and their idea of ‘compensation’….rant over lol.

    Cummon store, get ur pecker up!

    still down in  South Texas, and I had the PS3 for a year but never connected online. Decided to get online righ at the first weekend system went down. Now that online gaming is up and have played MW2 & READ DEAD REDEMP. I now truly understand what all you gamers went through on the waiting. Online Gaming is the Sh**. I have alot of catching up to do.

  • Erik Rodrigues

    i’ve just called PlayStation support regarding the subject … and the guy on the other line just tell me that it’s better for you to wait then listening for rumors that are on internet…

    forecast of the date should be the end of the month of may … and it will be launched in the same time as the European and American PlayStation Store

    but it is the end of may. and dnt think im being stereotypical but playstation isnt your life go do something other than cod blops online or wanting to download watever, and i honestly am outraged at the time sony is taking to bring this back up because i am personally wanting to download my demo for infamous 2, and i want the dlc i will get wen it comes out but sony is working as hard as possible so calm down and read a book, maybe look up the background story for your favorite game, just be patient

  • Fuad Idris

    This is plain dumb, why cant they just say the store will be back next month instead of giving us promise but keep breaking it. At least if they say next month but the store is back end of this months it will make lots of people fell a bit better instead of breaking promises.
