Not a dream! Not an imaginary story! The Playstation Network is back!
It's really balky at this point and it's rolling out in stages so right now only the east and west coasts of the US are back online- but it's there. Guess that counts for something right?
Now, when you first log back in- after you get a 'down for service' message about a dozen times - you'll have to change your password.
Probably a good idea, no?
