Yesterday Sony began the process of restoring the PlayStation Network after it was unavailable for almost a month. They started rolling out the restoration program region by region, but there have been some problems. The PlayStation Network has gone down again for some users, and others have been unable to change passwords.
Many users have taken to Twitter complaining the service had gone down again soon after being restored. Some of our readers have contacted us saying the service was only available for a short time. The EU PlayStation Blog has posted and said to bear with them as they are “experiencing extremely heavy traffic”.
They also mentioned the problems some users have experienced trying to reset their passwords. Some PS3 owners have yet to receive their emails for resetting them, but because of the high demand it has slowed the system down. Sony put it down to some ISPs slowing down the emails due to the high demand.
Users will still be waiting to get hold of the free Welcome Back package that Sony is planning to give away. But as we reported yesterday the package will be available once the PS Store is back up, and this will be happening once the PlayStation Network is available worldwide.
Have you experienced any new problems with the PlayStation Network in your area?
