Sony's PlayStation Store has been offline for almost a month following an attack on the company's PlayStation Network, leaving PlayStation developers without a digital storefront to sell their wares. That should changes next week, according to new memo from Sony.

The PlayStation Store is scheduled to return starting May 24, according to a report from Gamasutra which cites an e-mail from PSN content manager Jack Osorno to development partners. On May 24, content previously scheduled for April 26 will go live, with Sony attempting to catch up with rapid updates to the store.

New content is reportedly coming quickly, with updates continuing on May 27, May 31 and June 3, doubling the typical weekly update schedule.

Sony is expected to have its "Welcome Back" content available soon after the PlayStation Store comes back online, offering a handful of free games, movie rentals and membership to its PlayStation Plus subscription service.

Gotta get everyone happy before E3. Can't give a speech in front of a crowd and expect it to be a good one with an unhappy audience.

The entertainment value of those speeches should be right up there with the royal wedding.
