If you had your hopes set on accessing the PS Store to download new PSN games or activate your L.A. Noire DLC codes today, prepare to be disappointed yet again.
Despite some circulating emails to publishers claiming that the PSN Store would be resurrected today, Sony has come forward to debunk all wishful thinking. Sony’s own Jeff Rubenstein released a message that surely deflated the hopes of many PS3 gamers and developers:
“For those asking about the PlayStation Store, we’re still targeting restoration of all services by the end of the month. Contrary to reports, the Store will not be publishing today.”
It seems that the PlayStation Store will end this week on a still-silent note sadly. However, the end of the month strikes in the middle of next week. We may be looking at the revival of the PS Store possibly near the end of this weekend or early next week if Sony sticks to their estimation. Whenever it does come back up, expect a slew of new PSN games and DLC to be released in rapid succession over the next several weeks in order to catch up with their digital release schedule. It might be a very expensive month for many gamers looking to pick up some of the PSN games that have been sitting on the shelf during the Store’s downtime.
But whatever happens, surely Sony will have everything back online in totality before E3. I mean, they couldn’t possibly walk into the show with this cloud still hanging over their heads… Right?
