PSN store set to return May 24

Tentative date given to publisher and developer partners from Sony

Sony's PlayStation Network store has been given a tentative return date of May 24, almost five weeks after it was taken offline.

That's according to an internal Sony memo seen by Gamasutra, which states that Sony intends to publish two updates every week for the next two weeks to catch up with a backlog of new DLC and games on the store - and rearrange the schedule depending on urgency.

"If there are concerns, we are willing to consider adjusting the release date of your content on this schedule," said PSN content manager Jack Osorno. "Adjustments will be made on a case by case basis."

The PlayStation Store is the only major service not up and running on the network since it went back online last weekend.

Multiplayer features, Qriocity and other services have gradually been reinstated to the network, following a hack in which 77 million accounts were compromised.
