PlayStation Store finally back in full

Well, it took a while, but the long saga of the Great Sony Shutdown of 2011 has finally come to a close. The PlayStation Store, the last piece of the puzzle, is now back online.

That, for the uninitiated, is where PlayStation owners can go to not only play online, but actually buy games, music and films. Sony's Spotify rival, the catchily-named Music Unlimited by Qriocity, is also back online.

So is that it? Can Sony relax? Not quite. There's still the matter of the free games they promised users to apologise for the weeks-long outages. Those will be along 'soon,' they say. And there's still the risk that the gigantic hack that caused the shutdown will result in identity fraud against users, though there's no sign of that yet.

Are you pleased to get back to online game-buying? Or have you stopped trusting Sony?
