After restoring gaming service for PSN recently, Sony has now started a full scale restoration of PSN and Qriocity services. The services should be back online in the Americas, Europe, and Asia today. Although, Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea will have to wait a bit longer. The PlayStation store is already poised for return with a collection of new games and demos. But not all is going to plan.
The system seems to be working intermittently in many regions. Users are getting frequent error messages reading “80710D36” when accessing the PlayStation Store. We wouldn’t be surprised if this was related to everyone grabbing those free games Sony is offering as an apology. Users will also be getting a free 1 month membership in PlayStation Plus.
On the plus side, more users than ever before know what PlayStation Plus and Qriosity are now. Are you going to be lining up for those freebies, or is your PS3 already on the auction block?
