Sony restores network

Sony has resumed a limited restoration of its PlayStation Network service in the US and Europe after the service was shut down amid a massive security breach.

Sony Computer Entertainment spokesman Satoshi Fukuoka said yesterday the company had also begun phased restoration of its Qriocity movie and music services.

Sony's PlayStation network is a system that links gamers worldwide in live play. Sony shut it down on April 20 after discovering the security breach affecting more than 100m online accounts. It is a system that also allows users to upgrade and download games and other content.
