Last night the Playstation Network restoration process began. It was first restored in California and some of the states on the eastern seaboard around 6:00pm PST. By this morning it was restored in all of America, as well as Canada. They are starting by restoring just the online gaming and friends list capabilities, but in the coming days they hope to bring back the rest of the services, including the Playstation store, as well as a new "Welcome Back" program that is supposed to give all members a free month of Playstation Plus, and some unrevealed peks as well. It was 24 days while the PSN was shut off, during that period I'm sure that global productivity rates skyrocketed, but now gamers can rest in peace knowing that their beloved service has returned.
