Sony will begin a phased resumption of its PlayStation Network and 
Qriocity services on Sunday, more than three weeks after a cyber attack 
that resulted in the loss of personal information on more than 100 
million customers.

The two services will initially be available for users in North America 
(where the service could resume late Saturday), Europe, the Middle East, 
Australia and New Zealand. Service in Japan and Asia will return at a 
later time yet to be announced.

First services to return will be online gaming, playback of already 
rented video, "Music Unlimited" online audio streaming, access to 
third-party services like Netflix and Hulu, PlayStation Home and friends 
features such as chat. Full service is expected to resume by the end of 

PlayStation users will be prompted to download a software update when 
they first connect to the network. The version 3.61 update will ask 
users to change their password. Once changed, users will be able to sign 
in to their accounts.
