Good news, Asia -- the PlayStation Network
is finally coming back. Today, Sony announced that it will restore its gaming network across the continent, more than a month after falling prey to a crippling data breach
. The company's PSN services are already up and running across other parts of the world
and, beginning tomorrow, will light up once again in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and even Japan, which had been harboring serious reservations
about the network's security. Gamers in South Korea and Hong Kong, meanwhile, will have to wait a little longer before returning to normalcy, though Sony is hoping to completely resolve the issue by the end of the month. The company certainly seems eager to put this saga to bed
, and for understandable reasons. The incident has already cost Sony an estimated $171 million
in revenue -- not to mention the untold numbers of suddenly wary consumers.
