Earlier we reported that the PlayStation Network was down for scheduled maintenance this time around and there had been some hope that the PlayStation Store would be returning when it went live. This hope was bolstered by the fact that a letter released last week to publishers said it would be online today. Instead however it will not be returning according to Sony’s James Gallagher.
Responding to fan criticism on the PlayStation Blog Gallagher stated Sony’s new potential release date as “by the end of May.” Meaning he was told to be as vague as possible. So unfortunately the PlayStation Store will still be down for the upcoming few days but at least everyone can still play online at the moment. Oh wait… well tomorrow you can.
