If the japanese government stops interfering with sony then maybe the store would've been back up this week.

This sudden worry over credit fraud, and identify theft now when its been going on for years worldwide is completely baffling to me.

They should just tend to matters of the state of their country instead of stopping sony from getting the store and the rest of the service back up especially in asia.

Well May is coming to an end so they better get it up fast if they want to aim for May.

I really don't get what you're laughing at. Japan has strict rules regarding this stuff as data protection is of utmost importance to them. It's common sense for the government to be acting like this.

I, myself, have a few Japanese friends who probably can't wait to get back online. And I gotta admit, it's getting pretty lonely without them... :(

Sony's silence in this matter is infuriating. The official response page to the hack/outage hasn't been updated since May 15th. Get it back online or don't, just tell us what you're doing, you bastards.

I feel the same way. I look everyday for some sort of word for what's going on, and see nothing. This lack of information makes me wonder why Sony is so callous towards it's closest supporters. Terrible customer support for Asia.

I'm beginning to wonder if people in the US have given up on the PS Store ever returning. Since Sony shot down the rumor Tuesday of it not returning that day and yesterday.. nothing much else has been said about it. First time in weeks.

Store could have been put back up but Sony doesn't want to activate any regions until they can activate them all (Japan first).

So basically Japan is holding everyone back.
