Sony's revealed that the PlayStation Store will finally return in Japan on July 6th.

That's this Wednesday if you haven't got a calendar nearby. There's very little else to say other than, yes, the PlayStation Store really has been down this long in Japan. The government demanded Sony provide evidence that the service was sufficiently protected after the PSN outage before allowing it to continue trading again.

Thank goodness we didn't have to wait this long, huh?
