Rumor: Limited Functionality Available for Playstation Network

on May 13, 2011 11:00 AM

This one goes out there for all of those who have been stranded on the island of no PlayStation Network for the last three weeks.

It has been rumored that the PlayStation Network is live for some developers, although the extent of this connectivity has not been revealed. However, it has been said that co-op play was used. This new bit of information was taken from poster Kagari on a NeoGaf forum post.

The internal PSN developer network is online again, at least it seems for some, although things are still a bit shaky at the moment such as lack of new account sign up.

This may have been taken out of context, but it seems that according to this unsubstantiated source, the PlayStation Network should be available to all users sooner rather than later. Hopefully this means that more PlayStation Network functionality will return shortly, but it’s still to early to make a call about that.

However, it has also recently been confirmed in a PlaystationNL twitter post that the Playstation Network is up for some in Europe, Japan and the United States to test new functionality. The tweet is translated below.

@ snickel86 Currently, a select group to test the network. Territories = Japan (Asia), Europe & America

If we piece together those two bits of information, it looks like there’s a good chance that full functionality will be received by PlayStation Network users sooner rather than later, although no official date for this has been confirmed as of yet. Check back for more news about the PlayStation Network situation as it is received.
