The PSN-gate saga continues, though Sony appears to finally be rectifiying the issue.

In a statement, Sony announced:

“The restoration of the services across the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Middle East are beginning, and consumers will be able to enjoy some of the online functionality provided by both the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. Phased restoration in Japan and other Asian countries and regions will be announced in due course.”

So there you have it. Expect Sony to slowly make good on their promise to have the service completely up by the end of the month. The phasing in makes perfect sense. If the the floodgates were opened all at once, the servers might not be able to handle the load of everyone attempting to log in simultaneously.

If you try to log in now, you’ll notice that a firmware update is required, forcing you to change your password immediately.

The service is back online for many gamers now and it looks like things will be back in working order since the service went offline on April 20th.
