Playstation Store To Be Taken Down In South Korea

Sony has announcd this week that the Playstation Store will be taken down in South Korea starting on June 29th as a way to comply with the country’s new “Game Industry Promotion Act.” The new law, which goes into affect starting July 1st, will make it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to be asked for their real name or age for account authentification, as is required by the Playstation Network Store. During the outage, it will be impossible to purchase additional content or download games. PSP and PS Vita stores will not be affected, however.

Not exaclty good news, but it isn’t permanent. Sony says it hopes to bring the service back sometime this year, but nothing has officially been announced yet. Here’s hoping. . .
