In Review - April '11
I'll cut to the chase for this one, since there's one big news item of the month that's taken all the headlines. I speak, of course, of the PSN downtime.
For those of you unaware, the Sony PS3 network (PSN) has been the subject of much discussion lately, having been intruded upon (among others) by a group called 'Anonymous Hackers' some weeks ago as a protest over the case against George Hotz.
Enter April, where Sony has found itself in even deeper trouble. News has come to light towards the end of the month that the most recent down time, leaving PS3 players without network connectivity and online multiplayer options for the past two weeks (as of this post), relates to an even bigger hack of their security system.
Sony has since detailed that user information, including personal credit card details, could have been attained by the hacker(s), and are working around the clock to completely rebuild their system towards a relaunch of PSN some time this May.
For those MobyGamers caught up in this crazy turn of events, please unsure you've altered any passwords that you may have used for other accounts besides your PSN, and double check your bank account and/or credit cards over the coming weeks and report any suspicious info asap. Always best to be safe than sorry.
Oh, and something relating to portals and talking turrets came out last month. Unless the cake lied to me again.
