Playstation Store To Re-Open May 24th

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.

You're my favourite writer on GG.net atm, Super Swede. I don't always agree with your articles, but I think you write them very well and engagingly.

Little Big Planet for PSP is GREAT, but its only single player, which kinda made me go awwwww a little bit after i booted it up. But the level of polish is great.this game really exceeded my expectations. i was really suprised by this title. u can download user created levels. i dont know why the PSP gets such HATE, it has great games.

WHY oh WHY am I sitting here at work when there's a lifetime of sodomy to commit and barely 24 hours left to do it?

What's that you say? Tomorrow won't actually be the end of the world? That's just when the 'chosen' are called to Heaven, and the rest of us have 6 months of life on earth before the entire UNIVERSE (yes, not just Earth, but the entire Universe) is destroyed?

Whew, I can get all that sodomy done after all. I'll have to work at it 24/7, but I'm dedicated.

@Rosa: Well thank you, that makes my little heart smile -- insofar as a heart can smile without causing what the medical community refers to as "death by sudden cardiac distress."

@Nitsud: It was a bit disappointing, but even without the multiplayer, LittleBigPlanet's PSP incarnation stayed in my system for a very, very long time. I was thrilled to bits when i heard that you would indeed be able to share and download custom levels (despite the fact that finding decent ones took a bit of hunting), and overall i thought the game was absolutely stellar -- much more than i had anticipated.

@Tair & Caracticus: Day of Lavos, Rapture, Armageddon, Calamity from the Skies... Whatever you want to call it, i think we can all agree that there will be tarantulas the size of tanks laying waste to the cities of man. Even as i struggle for my final breath after an epic, yet futile battle with one of Lucifer's minions, i will look back fondly on the week that was, grateful that i was alive to see the 700 Club finally pulled off the air.

Good night, good luck, and god bless.

As far as I know though, the store still hasn't reopened. We just finally got the PSN up here in Japan, and the store is still closed.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
