After nearly 4 weeks of being offline as a result of major server attacks back in mid-April Sony’s Playstation Network is now back online and functional. Jeff Rubenstein, Social Media Manager for Sony, posted this on the Sony blog making the announcement and including some more information regarding the outage.

If memory serves me well this is probably the biggest outage of a recentĀ online game service we’ve ever seen. It’s also not the best PR for Sony as they’ve been trying to ramp up their paid premium service to compete with XBOX Live.

In either case the timing is good. I just picked up Gran Turismo 5 and was beginning to wonder how I was going to play it online.

How has the PSN outage affected you? We want to hear from you.
