Assuming the Apocalypse fails to rend Gaia in twain, leaving us unbelievers to traverse the smoldering doomscape of our once proud civilization while careening through the infinite firmament, PSN users will have a chance to do business on the Playstation Store in just a few short days. According to Gamasutra, this puts Sony ahead of schedule.
From their article:
The first push, set to coincide with the PlayStation Store's reopening, will distribute content that was originally scheduled to publish on April 26. Three days later on the 27th, another round of games will go live, which were originally scheduled for May 3.
The following week, pushes will take place on May 31 and June 3, using content that originally had been planned to be spread over three weeks. At that point, the company will be back on schedule and, presumably, return to a single content push per week.
The information came from a memo obtained by Gamasutra, written to development partners by PSN content manager Jack Osorno. Sony looks to have a set order for content release, though that could changed should objections emerge "on a case by case basis." It's going to be interesting to see the aftermath of the hacking incident, not only with the public, but with developers whose lost revenue has no doubt caused a good deal of ire. There's no word on when users will be able to enjoy the bounty of Sony's "Welcome Back" program, something that, for me, cannot come soon enough. Daddy needs some LittleBigPlanet for his PSP.
