(TOKYO) -- Gamers can now return to their familiar positions in front of a television screen with controllers in hand, as Sony has announced that restoration of its PlayStation Network has begun.
The restoration comes after the network had been down since April 20, following a criminal cyber-attack on Sony’s data-center located in San Diego, California.
By Sunday morning service had been restored throughout the entire United States and to some other parts of the world, however, the PlayStation store remained offline.
On the PlayStation blog website, the company urged gamers to update the firmware on their PlayStation 3 systems and to change their passwords.
