"I’m happy to confirm that PlayStation Store is open and you can now download content and redeem voucher codes," SCEE’s head of communications Nick Caplin stated.

"We will update you with the full lists of new content available to PlayStation Network members and PlayStation Plus subscribers here on the PlayStation.Blog in the next few hours.

The Store returns with a breadth of new content including digital titles such as Sega Rally Online, Outland and Back to the Future: Episode 3. There are also a number of demos available such as Red Faction: Armageddon and Motorstorm: Apocalypse.

Gamers will also be delighted to finally get their hands on expansion packs and DLC for titles such as Crysis 2, LA Noire and Fallout New Vegas.

A further store update is scheduled for tomorrow.
