‘Everything must come to end’, they say, and the nightmare PlayStation 3 owners had to suffer when PSN was hacked, leaving tens of millions offline and unable to purchase content has ended. The PlayStation Store is back with a massive update.


The update come ready with demos like Red Faction: Armageddon and Motorstorm Apocalypse. Full games include Sega Rally Online, Outland, Under Siege and Back to the Future: Episode 3 and lots more. Amongst the DLC throng, you’ll see Fallout: New Vegas Honest Hearts, Crysis 2 map pack Retaliation and a plethora of Rock Band songs and packs are part of the DLC update.

There’s also a next update scheduled for tomorrow, as Sony tries to bring the store up-to-date.

Japan’s store hasn’t returned, and according to Sony, that’s because it’s complying with instructions on information security from the Japanese government.

It’s a big update, this one, so get the full lot over at the US PS Blog.

Big news.

    I can’t use the store. I just get error messages every time I choose something. If it is like this for most people, they should have just left the store down.

    It’s up for me now… Had the same issue – it’s just too much initial usage that’s all.
