PSN Online Gaming Back Up This Week

By Jamie Pert - May 10, 2011

Remember earlier today we asked you whether you would prefer a fully-fledged PSN relaunch or a a return in its simplest form, well it looks like the latter is more likely as Eurogamer suggests that PSN matchmaking may be available by the end of the week.

According to Eurogamer a PlayStation Europe community manager has confirmed that online gaming will be available before other PSN services, no time frame was given, however a tweet from MusterBuster says “Online gaming will return BEFORE May 31st”.

Comments on our previous post suggests that as long as people can play their games online they will be happy for the time being, by doing this it would take some of the pressure of Sony and then they could work on other services whilst people happily get on with ranking up on their favorite first-person shooters etc,

We are not sure where EuroGamer got their “next few days” prediction from, however we suppose that it is possible, hopefully we will hear some official information from Sony regarding the matter to clarify things for you.

Will you play online this weekend if the PSN is back up and running? If so, which game will you play?

    I am a fan of cod, it is the reason I own a PS. This wait for online gaming sucks but I do understand. The only thing that would make me happy is if sony gave out the new maps for free. I know not all psn users play cod but it would be nice to have the option to choose the maps instead of the two free games I will probably never play.

      I already have my giftcard ready to buy the map packs!!! But it would be awesome if sony gives them for free instead of those games

    • Mark

      are the map packs not a product of activision though? It would mean sony would have to basically buy the map pack for you or strike an agreement with activision. It would be a nice gesture but it wouldnt happen.

    Can't wait!!! If it is so, it definitely will take some of the pressure of Sony and make a lot of people happy. I will be one of those persons.
