Sony to Update PlayStation Store Multiple Times Per Week to Catch Up

Soon, we'll transition from having nothing to having way too much. That's okay.

As PlayStation Network continues to come online worldwide--except in Japan, for now--and multiplayer on PlayStation 3 becomes a thing again, players are rightfully beginning to wonder when they'll be able to start acquiring new content. Sony's still working on getting PlayStation Store back to its original functionality, but said today it will be updating the store multiple times per week when it's back online.

"To catch up on the large amount of material, we’ll be publishing to the PlayStation Store multiple times per week once commerce functionality is restored," said social media manager Jeff Rubenstein, as part of a FAQ addressing many of the lingering PSN issues. "We will update the PlayStation.Blog with information on timing of the Store restoration, as well as the full list of new content as each publish occurs."

Sony's said full functionality will return by month's end, which is about as specific as I'd expect Sony to get at the moment. Given how often Sony has to shift the original kick-off date for PSN, I'm not surprised.
