I can’t imagine any of you missed the big ‘Sony got hacked‘ story all over the news. It’s getting nut-so now that they’re confirming all this personal information getting jacked and giving people links to credit report services just in case they managed to take credit card info along with just about every other detail of your personal life. It’s probably a little premature to start cancelling your credit cards, but a good password change is in order. Graev has generated his 12+ digit random alphanumeric encryptions all over again just to be sure.
It’s so annoying that there’s no service for the PS3. Graev got Portal for PS3 and luckily it came with a complimentary copy on Steam that he can use. I can understand the Sony hate over the issues that hackers have raised, but I can’t understand anyone wanting to hurt players this badly or even Sony faking the outage — too much money and trust are being lost.
Have any of the SoE MMO’s been offline? I know there was news that Free Realms and DCUO had issues but have they been down for several days too? To be quite honest, I would change those passwords if I currently had an SoE account I cared about.
What I don’t get is this:
“We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011, certain PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account information was compromised in connection with an illegal and unauthorized intrusion into our network.”
