For those keeping track, the PlayStation Network was down from April 20 to May 15, 2011. That means Sony missed the opportunity to update the PS Store with new demos, downloadable games, movies, etc., for three weeks. A lot of curious people have been wondering just how Sony plans to play catch-up.

Well, Sony has announced the answer to the question: they will be publishing multiple PS Store updates per week until they're comfortably back to square one. This is in contrast to the standard, publish-once-a-week-on-Tuesday system Sony typically employs.

However, the PlayStation Store is still currently down. While PS users are currently able to enjoy online gaming, the PlayStation Store will remain offline until later this month. Once it comes back online, however, Sony will begin the process of doubling or tripling up on PS Store updates per week. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the “Welcome Back” program incentives when the PS Store is restored.

For further updates you can keep an eye on the official PlayStation Blog, where Sony plans to update with information on “timing of the Store restoration, as well as the full list of new content as each publish occurs."
