A games collector from Thailand is selling his collection of every Final Fantasy game ever released across every console for $15,000. The collection is made up of over 70 games, some of which are extremely rare.

PSN store will not be back online today as recently advised by Sony. Instead, it appears the original prediction of the end of May will be the case.

Trion Worlds have announced that a free cross server character transfer will be available for new MMO RIFT. They are hoping this will normalise server populations.

Playstation Network Returning, Statement from Sony CEO

The PSN is finally back online in Australia! While not all services have been restored (most notably Playstation Store), multiplayer gaming is now fully functional. Today Sony’s President and CEO, Kaz Hirai presented the following video statement.
