After being down for 22 days. PSN in back online in Canada, All 50 States, and Puerto Rico. Sony announced this shortly after midnight. A firmware update is required before the system will reconnect to the network. Also expect to change your password.
As a note to the PSN gamers. Please use caution in the information you give to Sony. Clearly this could happen again in the future. I recommend buying the PSN cards from a retailer. Save yourself the identity theft and keep it anonymous. Also it doesn’t hurt to use fake names and untraceable email accounts. I use many email accounts to make tracing me a pain. Just a suggestion. Now go play some Killzone 2, and happy gaming.
