PSN Store returns 24th May - report

Bi-weekly updates to get up to speed.

Sony will try to bring the PlayStation Store back online on 24th May.

That's what the company allegedly wrote to publishing partners in a memo intercepted by Gamasutra.

Sony apparently plans two content releases a week for the next two weeks to get back to speed.

"We thank you for your patience as we work to resume service of the PlayStation Store," wrote memo author Jack Osorno, PlayStation Network content manager.

The first push will happen on 24th May and contain content that was supposed to appear on 26th April.

The second push will happen on 27th May and contain content from 3rd May.

The third and fourth pushes will happen on 31st May and 3rd June, and contain content originally to be spread over three weeks.

What comes back when isn't set in stone: "If there are concerns, we are willing to consider adjusting the release date of your content on this schedule," wrote Osorno. "Adjustments will be made on a case by case basis."

Whether Sony will offer developers severely affected by the PSN outage any additional assistance Osorno didn't say.
