Sony’s announced that the PlayStation Store will finally return in Japan this Wednesday, July 6.

PS3 and PSP owners will finally be able to access content in the country, nearly a month after most other countries had gotten the store back at the start of last month as part of the restoration to PSN following its downtime in the April external attack.

The network itself only returned in Japan late last month.

Yesterday, Sony ended the Welcome Back pack for PS3 and PSP users in the west.

The store had previously returned to other parts of Asia, but not Japan due to checks on security under guidance by the Japanese government.

Thanks, Andriasang.
