Sony has announced that the PlayStation Network will be fully restored and available to access tomorrow in the Americas, Europe/PAL territories and Asia, excluding Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea. Music Unlimited for PS3, PSP, and PC is also up and running. Details regarding full restoration in Japan, Hong Kong, and South Korea will be available at a later date. Additionally, details about each region’s Welcome Back package are still to be announced.
Restoration has occurred just in time for E3. And with that, Sony has also announced that their presentation will be viewable in a special screening room within PlayStation Home on June 6 at 5pm (PT). The conference will be hosted by SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton and feature new footage of upcoming titles, title reveals, and more about the company’s upcoming successor to the PlayStation Portable.
Home will also be host to a virtual E3 booth, which many might remember from last year, that will be a replica of Sony’s showroom exhibit and offer gamers a chance to take a virtual tour as well as score some Home items that are scattered throughout each area. Gamers who take the entire tour will gain access to an upstairs area that will show Home content, include the first level of Scribble Shooter, as well as score a virtual item package that will include companions, furniture, and ornaments. To gain access to the virtual booth, simply login to Home beginning June 7 at 12pm (PT).
