Sony’s corporate communications & social media director Patrick Seybold has given anxious PlayStation 3 users an update about the return of the PlayStation Network service stating that the company is entering “final stages of internal testing of the new system” and that this is a major step forward in bringing back the PSN and Qriocity services.

“We’ve been working around the clock to rebuild the network and enhance protections of your personal data,” wrote Seybold via the Official PS Blog. “It’s our top priority to ensure your data is safe when you begin using the services again.”

“We understand that many of you are eager to again enjoy the PlayStation Network and Qriocity entertainment services that you love, so we wanted you to be aware of this milestone and our progress.”

“We will provide additional updates as soon as we can.”

SCEE’s head of communications Nick Caplin confirmed earlier this week that Sony plans to have the service back up before the weekend. The updated service will include new security protocols to ensure safety against future hacks. In addition, Sony will be rolling out a “Welcome Back” package to PS3 users featuring perks such as a free 30 day subscription of PlayStation Plus and one free unspecified PlayStation Store game download. Stay tuned for more information.
