Yesterday we posted a couple of articles regarding the PlayStation Network being down and when it would be back up, a few of the comments we received suggested that people didn’t care if it relaunched in its simplest form as long as it allowed people to once again play their games online.
Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be fully online by May 31, this does not mean that you won’t be able to play online until this date, however it does mean that when the PSN is switched on it may not be fully functional straight away.
We think that when Sony relaunch the PSN it will feature all of the functionality available beforehand, but many would sacrifice features if it meant that the network would be up and running earlier. We doubt that Sony will do this as one full rollout will be much easier than adding features here and there, but there is an outside possibility that they would do just this.
PSN in its simplest form can be interpreted in many ways, for now we will assume that it means that online multiplayer gaming is possible, however messaging others, purchasing games and DLC, adding friends etc would not be possible, how would you feel about this? Let us know in the comments section below.
Would you prefer to wait for a fully-fledged relaunch?
