Sony announce when Welcome Back package will be available

You may be already aware that the PlayStation Network is beginning to come back online region by region. Users have to first download a new firmware update before they can access the service and change passwords. Now Sony announce when the Welcome Back package will be available.

Gamersmint are reporting that Head of Communications Nick Caplin has announced that gamers will get their welcome back gifts as soon as the PS Store is also restored. Many PS3 owners who are now enjoying the PlayStation Network being available, may have been wondering when they will start seeing the free goodies offered by Sony.

There was no date given when the PS Store will be back up, but it’s expected shortly maybe even today according to Caplin. He said that the PS Store restoration was phase 2 of Sony’s operation, and won’t be restored until all areas have access to PSN. He promised to update the PlayStation Blog as soon as there is some news.

Currently users in Europe are waiting for the PlayStation Network to be resumed, and at the time of writing UK readers are contacting us saying the service has yet to be restored in their region. Is PSN back online in your region?
