With all the bad news that I kept posting about the PSN I think you will be glad to read this blog post. Sony has started to turn on the PSN network. All you gamers can start updating your PlayStation to be ready for the service to be turned back on. It is being rolled out in waves so hopefully the service does not go down with everyone attempting to access it
You will have to reset your password once you try to login again. So that's all for this update, now you can go back to your PlayStation and keep waiting for it to say connected.
