PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable may soon get to download games, demos and other digital content as early as next week.
According to reports from Gamasutra and Giant Bomb, Sony will begin posting the first updates to its PlayStation Store on May 24, more than one month after the PlayStation Network was knocked out by a massive data breach.
Citing a letter sent to content partners, the reports say will issue updates over the course of several days to catch up with the backlog of content awaiting release.
"We thank you for your patience as we work to resume service of the PlayStation Store," reads the reported letter.
Sony spokesman Patrick Seybold responded to the Giant Bomb report, stating "we've not announced a specific date other than to say we expect to have the service fully restored by end of the month. Anything other than that is purely speculative."
Last Saturday, Sony kicked off a "phased restoration" of PSN, allowing users to play games online, access their friends lists and trophies and explore PlayStation Home.
