PlayStation Store Reopens in South Korea on 16th May

Gee gee, baby

After being shut down last June due to a legal loophole, the PlayStation Store will finally reopen its doors for business on the PlayStation 3 in South Korea from 16th May. The service was originally closed due to a new legislation that made it illegal for users under the age of 18 to verify online accounts with their real name or age.

It’s taken the company almost a year to happen upon a solution, which entails restricting use of the PlayStation Store to players aged 18 and older. Surely it could have done that last year? Regardless, by way of an apology for the extended outage, the firm is giving away a free month of PlayStation Plus to all eligible account holders. Yay?
