Yes. Read the title and cheer, for Sony have announced that the Playstation Network will be turned back on, region by region, this week.

After "an illegal intrustion" of the Playstation network and Qriocity by hackers, Sony are rebooting the Playstation network, and have announced a "Welcome Back" scheme, which involves a free 30-day membership of Playstation Plus, certain Playstation Plus games becoming free to download and 30 days subscription free for members of the Music Unlimited service (although we don't care about that! We want Battlefield!)

A firmware download will have to be downloaded by all users of the Playstation network, and password changes will have to be made, due to account details being much of the data stolen during the intrusion.

The Playstation Store will not be active for some time, for undisclosed reasons, but it should be up by the end of May, alongside all other Playstation Network and Qriocity services.

So, it looks like it's back to the Battlefield for all us Playstation users, which is especially nice seeing as my new PS3, replacing the broken one, is arriving this week.

Take care, and happy gaming!
