And this!!!! PlayStation Network return imminent? PlayStation Network could be restored within days, according to a report. Users at NeoGAF have said that an internal network intended for game developers can now be accessed by a number of people. Although certain features are said to be "shaky" and the ability to create new accounts is missing, for all intents and purposes the network is online. It has been suggested that online matchmaking will be the first feature to return, with a Sony source telling Eurogamer that it will be restored within a few days. Yesterday, it was reported that the number of PlayStation 3 systems being traded in has increased as a result of the prolonged downtime. Earlier this week, Sony said that it was unsure of an exact date for the return of PlayStation Network, but has suggested that all services will be fully operational by the end of the month. PlayStation Network, which currently supports 77 million users worldwide, went offline on the evening of Wednesday, April 20 as a result of hacker activity. It was confirmed the following Tuesday, April 26 that personal information was taken as a result of the breach. Sony has since recruited an external security firm to help create a more robust network infrastructure.
