Korean PlayStation Store back online after 10 months down

By
Sony's PlayStation Store is to become available in Korean again after a 10-month outage.

The platform holder was forced to take the storefront offline as local laws state that users under 18 must not be asked to enter their real name or age when registering for an online service.

As these details are mandatory when registering for a PSN account, Sony was forced to make alterations to the service when the laws came into effect on July 1.

The Korean PlayStation Store is now restricted to users over 18, and requires them to register a credit card to verify their age.

As an apology to users affected by the 10-month outage, Sony is offering one free month of PlayStation Plus access.

The PlayStation Store will resume operation in Korea on May 16.
