Playstation Store back online and open for business

The Playstation Store has finally returned in Europe and the US after more than four weeks of downtime.

A statement on the official Playstation Blog says:

“I’m happy to confirm that PlayStation Store is open and you can now download content and redeem voucher codes. We will update you with the full lists of new content available to PlayStation Network members and PlayStation Plus subscribers here on the PlayStation.Blog in the next few hours.”

The Welcome Back package – which allows PS3 owners to download two of five PS3 games and two of four PSP titles free of charge and gives non-Playstation Plus users 30 days free membership – has yet to be implimented, with Sony promising it will appear “soon”.

Existing Playstation Plus users will recieve an extra 60 days free on top of their existing membership.

For those who may have missed the news first time round (where have you been, guys?!) the five PS3 games you can choose from will be:

Wipeout HD/Fury
Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
Dead Nation*

And the four PSP titles for download are:

LittleBigPlanet PSP
ModNation PSP
Pursuit Force
Killzone Liberation*

The Playstation Store has been closed for business since April 20 after Sony discovered its servers had been hacked and the personal data of more than 90 million customers stolen.
