PlayStation store will not get restored today

Below is the news regarding PlayStation Store, posted on the same official Blog:

For those asking about the PlayStation Store, we’re still targeting restoration of all services by the end of this month. Contrary to reports, the Store will not be publishing today.

Many PlayStation users out there are anxiously waiting for their favorite PlayStation Store to get back online soon, so that they could enjoy the amazing offers of ‘Welcome Back’ appreciation program granted by the company, as Sony has recently announced that the users will be getting their ‘Welcome Back’ gifts, once the PlayStation Store is fully restored.

We hope that Sony instead of taking more time will now bring back the PlayStation Store and other services in this last week of May. What do you expect?
