Product-Reviews writes: As we informed you at the end of the last week, it continues to be a frustrating time for PlayStation 3 owners in Hong Kong and other Asia countries, as despite the fact that some PSN services have resumed in the UK, the US and also Japan – it remains offline for Hong Kong gamers.

Pretty outrageous how Sony can turn the PSN back online in Japan, but not places like Hong Kong and South Korea..what's up with that?

Its not that they dont want to. Japan's government kept them from turning theirs on all this time to make sure they were following proper protocol to keep more hacks from happening. Personal info was at risk thanks to whoever hacked PSN. There are more important things to watch out for then kids putting up more Black-ops tomahawk throws. If their government has similar gripes then they are going to abide by their laws.

On another note Welcome back my Japanese Brothers and Sisters.....Hong Kong, South Korea and all else waiting, hang in there we feel for you.

I'm in South Korea and it's been hell. I just want to hop online and play Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, and SOCOM 4. Is that too much to ask? :(

Good thing I'm moving to Japan next Monday. I'll finally be able to play again.

Yeah, I'm in Korea too and it's getting real old, real fast! I'm a huge sony supporter but c'mon guys! I can only be patient for so long.

I'm a Canadian living here. Even though my account is in North America, I still can't play.

Konabro, what's your psn ID. I'll put you on my friends list for some SOCOM. Are you a foreigner? ^_- Haha!
