Why have you left us PSN? We miss you. We want to play Brink online and browse our PlayStation Plus content. We can’t even get to our back-up saves for Arkham Asylum; they’re trapped in the cloud. When will you be back?

Well, “at least a few more days” is the latest update to come from Sony via the Official PlayStation

European PS Store Update for April 20 – What’s happenin’ Fancy Pants?

The very solid slate of special offers from last week will remain throughout this week’s update as well. So if you haven’t done so already check out the rundown of discounted titles because it’s a pretty notable bunch.

But if you say ‘nay’ to such fine discounts perhaps you will find The Fancy Pants Adventures or a full game download of ModNation Racers to your liking. Just promise us you won’t download Battle: Los Angeles. Better yet if you’re thinking about purchasing the movie tie-in how about redirecting your funds to support your favorite charitable PS3 site?
