Sony Online Entertainment back up and running

As part of Sony Corp’s on-going global restoration process for PlayStation Network, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has today confirmed that its network is now back up and running after some lengthy downtime.

Gamers will now be able to fire up the likes of DC Universe Online and Everquest again after the service was pulled off line last month.

"We are pleased to be back online and deeply apologise for the inconvenience caused by the recent data breach and subsequent outage," SOE said in a statement.

"To thank you all for your patience and understanding, we have prepared a Welcome Back Program that includes complimentary identity theft protection, free game time and special in-game items and events."

SOE requires that punters reset their password before doing anything else, a move that Sony has also made mandatory for all customers attempting to sign back into PSN following its restoration.
