PSN online gaming return imminent?

Developers using PSN right now.

The internal PSN developer network is online again, suggesting Sony may switch matchmaking online soon.

"The internal PSN developer network is online again, at least it seems for some, although things are still a bit shaky at the moment such as lack of new account sign up," reported NeoGAF user Kagari.

"Looks like the full network, at least the online play/account part of it, will be back soon."

Earlier this week Eurogamer heard from a source that Sony planned to bring PlayStation Network matchmaking back online within the next couple of days.

When contacted for comment, SCE corporate communications director Patrick Seybold told Eurogamer, "We're working to get the network back on as soon as we can." Eurogamer has again contacted Sony for comment.

PlayStation 3 online gaming has been unavailable since Sony shut the PSN down on 20th April following the hack that saw millions of user accounts compromised.

Personal data, including names, addresses and passwords were stolen. Sony is unsure whether user credit card details were also stolen.
