Developer offers update for when PlayStation Store will be back online

We don’t want to spoil your good mood in hearing that the PlayStation Store may be back online tomrrow after scheduled maintenance which is now underway, but a fresh report has provided an alternative date for when the Store will be back.

Firstly, if you haven’t read our initial report about the maintenance, you can do so here again. Now on to the counter reports, as it turns out the PlayStation Store may be back online on Friday 3rd June, instead of June 2nd (tomorrow).

The news has surfaced from a game studio called Gamelion, who updated their Facebook page with an update regarding one of their planned releases onto the PlayStation Network. Here is what they said, as reported from PlayStation Lifestyle:

‘Block Cascade Fusion is coming as Minis for PS3 and PSP to North America on 3rd June 2011!”

The obvious question to ask is why would they put down a solid date of June 3rd, when they know that Sony is in the midst of switching the PlayStation Network on and off, and failing to give PS3 users a specific date for when services will be back to normal. The answer to this could be that Sony has already informed certain developers of a date for when they’ll be able to get their content onto the Store for users to download.

Either that, or they have just put down Friday 3rd June to go with Sony’s announcement of bringing full functionality to PSN before the end of the week. It’s something to bear in mind though today while we all hope the Store comes back online tomorrow.

What do you make of the statement by this studio? Will you be disappointed if you have to wait another day or not?

    At this point in time, I dont belive that the store will be back up this week, for the last 3 weeks it has been the store will be back up on the 18th, then on the 18th it will be back on the 24th, then by the end of May and now it is by the end of the week.

    I have lost faith in Sonys ability to get this done, I am not switching consoles, but I am still very disappointed in how this is all playing out. I dont care about the welcome back crap. I would just like to beable to have my DLC codes redeamed and Be able to buy a new game of the store is all.

    They can keep the freebies for all I care.

      There is a difference in the store being up and playstation network being up. A few weeks ago was the discussion and the process of psn coming back on. Nothing about playstation store…

      People are pathetic sometimes

      P.S. check other sources, psn is down right now in order to get the return of the store back up… damn retards man.

    The Store will be up before you know it.  Just have patience. Better to have it done right the first time.  There’s plenty of games to choose from.

    The store is definitly going to be on this week as trayarch have released the update that allows us to download the new map packs as soon as ps store comes back so it may as well be friday as trayarch have also stated that there will be a double xp this weekend for ps3 users ONLY and when i checked the zombies you could see the map Call Of The Dead. Sooooo… lets all hope tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

    They better.  Treyach is releasing Escelation for black ops the 3rd.  They should give us the map pack for free and a extra 50 dollers in our wallet for being understanding in the hacking and waiting so long for the store to come back up.  Or if not the map pack for free then 100 dollers in our psn wallet or give us 5 free map packs 2 free games (of our choice not stupid games we hae to choose from row)  and 25 dollers in our psn wallet.

    The only problem with free map packs is not everyone plays shitty ass call of duty
