Illustration for article titled Sony Brings Its Joke Spokesman Back Online, Kevin Butler Fully Operational

Highly entertaining but fake PlayStation executive Kevin Butler was notably (and understandably) quiet during Sony's recent PlayStation Network downtime. But like the PlayStation Store, the cocky PlayStation mouthpiece has returned, showing that Sony is willing to laugh again.

Mr. Butler joked about his sabbatical/hibernation on Twitter today, ending his weeks-long silence and allegedly shaving just ahead of E3 2011. Will he make an appearance? Has enough time passed for this tragedy to become good comedy? We'll find out next week if "Kevin" makes an appearance at Sony's E3 2011 press conference.
