Sony has recently announced through their blog that “some services” of the PSN (PlayStation Network) will be go back online within a week. The company did not specify what these “some services” are, but at least people got something.

Sony also urged some developers to acquire and install the new SDKs on their PlayStation 3 dev kits. The new SDKs will include new security features in light of the recent attacks on the PSN service, which has sent Sony and all its denizens into a state of discord after learning that private information – such as billing addresses, usernames and passwords – have been compromised.
