2+ Months Later: PlayStation Network, Store Still Offline In Japan.

  • June 24, 2011 1:40 pm

Despite the rest of the world regaining Playstation Network and PlayStation Store access as early as May 14th, Sony’s PSN and PlayStation Store customers in Japan remain offline.

The reason is the same as it was a month ago — the Japanese government has demanded that Sony show/prove that specific requirements are being met before they’ll allow the switch to be flipped. Making matters worse is that Sony hasn’t offered up any public explanations as to what the Japanese government’s requirements are, how they’re planning to meet said requirements, or a time frame in which we can look forward to a Japanese re-launch of PSN services.

For what it’s worth, Sony did issue a brief apology today to PSN and Qriocity customers which stated they needed more time “to make adjustments with the various related parties” — the “related parties” of course being various governmental agencies.

Tell us, Japanese PlayStation owners: What have you been doing to pass the time?
