[Update] Report: PSN Back Up For Developers

[Update]

Giant Bomb has confirmed the rumors that surfaced on NeoGAF today, after speaking with "developer sources." Writer Patrick Klepek also provides a little more information on how PSN is functioning currently.

As previously rumored, new account registration is not functional, which is a problem for many developers who generally create multiple "dummy" accounts for development purposes. Obviously, these are created with fake information that was not written down, making it difficult for the developers to access PSN.

Could this be the first sign that Sony's PlayStation Network is getting close to being restored? A poster on the NeoGAF forums, Kagari, says that he has confirmed with sources in the development community that PSN is up and running, although she says "things are still a bit shaky at the moment."

Kagari claims that some features, like new account sign up, are still disabled. However, if true, this looks to an encouraging sign that some of PSN's basic functions like online play will be up and running soon.
