xx Playstation Network hacked!
« Thread started on: Apr 29th, 2011, 3:23pm »

Sony's Playstation Network has been hacked, that is why it's been down for the last week or so. Sony has stated that the hackers might have stolen personal infomation of PSN users.


If you have a PSN account please click the following link:
here.

I've already contected my bank and told them of this situlation. I plan to alert the American credit bureaus as well.

I hope I'm not coming as a paranoid but I believe in being safe than sorry or as they said on those old G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero public service announcements: Knowing is half the battle.

yeah, heard the same news from my friend yesterday.

Bad news for PSN holders. I have one as well so I do worry about my info also gettin into the wrong hands. Thankfully, i have no psn credits stored there. but still, the address, and any personal info makes me feel uncomfy about the hack.

I've quite enjoyed mocking my friends that use PSN who I've been telling for years that the network was massively inferior to X-Box Live, hence the reason it's free.

Yeah..what the boss said. Calm down, buddies.

more insight on the PSN: For me, what sucks is, I can't play 2k11 anymore with my bro. Oh well, gonna wait for it in august when I drop by there. Hopefully it'll be up by then. Or sooner, or something.

I want a PS+ access due to the online backup feature more than the DLC, old PS1/PS2 games, and the rest but this sounds like a 30 day free trial.

The only cards that I've seen for the PS+ (you know those gift or phone cards) around here only come in two ways: 3 Month deal for $18 or a 1 Year deal for $50. Of course you can subscribe online but after this situation one can understand why I'm leery of going that route for the immediate future. And FTR I'm just as leery of buying MS points off XBL after this.

I know that I will buy MS Points and add funds to my wallet online with both Sony and Microsoft once I feel that personal and credit info are safe.

The PSN is back online in a general sense. The PS Store, and other services (the movie and music services), and the PS Home are still offline. Sony is hoping that the PSN will be fully restored in by the end of May.

Ironically I learned about this on the MSNBC news section on Xbox Live. Go figure. rolleyes

Good news, bad news time. When (if?) the Playstation store comes back, we can get free games. Thats the good news. The bad news, they're old ass games you probubly already have:

•Dead Nation
•inFAMOUS
•LittleBigPlanet
•Super Stardust HD
•Wipeout HD + Fury
