Japan Says No To PSN Restoration

Sony must prove itself to home base before rebooting PSN

| Gaming News | Posted: May 16, 2011 11:08 pm

While it seems that everyone is pretty psyched that the PlayStation Network will be back up and running after weeks of being down, Japan is surprisingly not down with that. Japan's government is halting the restoration of the network in their country until Sony can prove that they've taken appropriate measures to avoid a similar incident in the future.

Kazushige Nobutani, Director of Media and Content Industry in Japan's Ministry of Economy reportedly told Dow Jones Newswires:

 

We met with Sony on May 6 and 13, and basically we want two things from them. The first is preventative measures. As of May 13, Sony was incomplete in exercising measures that they said they will do on the May 1 press conference.

The second evidently regarded ensuring consumer confidence in the wake of having their credit card information and other personal data compromised in the security breach. As we've seen already today, Sony is answering various usage questions and even giving games away to ensure that users return to the previously-troubled PlayStation Network as they gear up to reboot the entire thing.
