Sony says most people will be able to reconnect with all of its PlayStation Network videogame services by the end of this week.
However, some service is still being delayed in Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea. A company spokesman says Japan must first satisfy government information security regulations. No specific reasons for the delay in other parts of Asia were provided. Sony had earlier indicated that all services would be up and running by the end of this month. Weeks ago, the company was hit by a huge security breach which leaked personal information on tens of millions of accounts.
