Sony PSN back Online… But only for Developers!

Good News:

The Sony Playstation network has gone live again!

Bad News:

Its only online for developers at the moment…

Yes Sony seems to be finally getting a grasp on the PSN Hack debacle by getting some form of a Network up for developers to get online and test the gaming platform.

Sony’s Neogaf Kagari has stated on the Sony community forum that “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.”

We are all awaiting the return of the Sony Playstation Network but Sony have not given any dates for its return, but with the service now being up for internal testing it’s sure to be a good sign that developers are finally getting a grip on what has turned out to be one of the worst hacks in the history of gaming.

Hopefully the service will be back over the next few days unlike the original assumption of the network being down until the 31st of May.

Sony has suffered greatly over the past 4 weeks with the PSN hack making headline news, slowing sales and especially the lack of revenue for Sony and games developers such as Activision and Eidos.

All we can hope is Sony get this sorted out ASAP and then get on with some form of compensation!
