As the PSN across North America has been completed, Sony is now beginning the phased restoration of the network across Europe. In recent comments from a Sony representative:
The phased rollout of certain PSN services has begun”.
While not all territories in Europe have had their service restored, expect that sometime today, you’ll be able to access the PlayStation Network at which point you’ll be needing to update to firmware 3.61 as well as change your PSN password.
Attention EU! RT @PlayStationEU: The phased rollout of certain PSN services has begun and we'll tweet when each territory goes back online.
