After being down for almost a month, the PlayStation Network is finally back online. Our very own Josh Bicknell from the Critical Strike podcast, one of the podcasts that are in the Platform Nation family has confirmed this. Now just because it’s up for Josh doesn’t mean it’s currently up for everyone. Sony is doing a phased restoration that’s first hitting the east coast.
Currently the green states should be back online. And while there is no time frame for each individual states, Sony is saying that it should all be back up in a few hours for the United States.
