After being taken offline in South Korea in July 2012, the PlayStation Store will be brought back online May 16. The store was taken offline due to a law in the country which forbids online services for asking those under 18 years old their name or age. Sony took the store offline to incorporate changes which would get the service in-line with the new law. Once it’s back up May 16, the store will be restricted to those 18 years of age and older. Minors will no longer be allowed to use the service, and a credit card will verify the registrants age with the store. Thanks, CVG.
