Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has announced that the PlayStation Network will return to full functionality in Japan on July 6.

Japan is the final territory to be restored after the shut down at the end of April, a full month after Europe and America. Services have been returning since the end of May, but this final move will see access to the PlayStation Store reinstated.

One reason for the Japanese delay was the demands placed on Sony by the government and credit card regulators, which included preventative measures to ensure the security of the system.

The security breach and subsequent shutdown is expected to cost the company approximately $170m.
