JAPAN: PSN fully restored

The PlayStation Network is fully back up and running in Japan following its hack that brought the service down in April.

PlayStation Store went in Japan live today, allowing users to purchase games, download demos and additional in-game content once again.

Hachimaki posted an image of PS Store live in Japan, as reported by Andriasang, confirming the online gaming service is back online.

As reported by MCV earlier this week, the restoration includes services such as the PS Store, Qriocity, the purchasing of in-game content and DLC and Media Go.

PSN has been down for 77 days in Japan following the PSN hack, which saw millions of users’ usernames and passwords unlawfully obtained by an external source. PSN was switched back on in May in the UK, with the PS Store going live in early June.
