PSN EU issues mass password reset as “precautionary measure”

Sony has issued a mass mandatory password reset on the European PlayStation Network, although there has been no security compromise.

European PSN users have reported numerous sign in issues over the past few hours. According to a support reply on the PlayStation forums, the reason is that Sony has requested users change their passwords.

The story is too old to be commented.

Trying to be proactive it seems. Incase MS hired ninja nerds to hack into accounts.

This has less to do with PSN and more to do with SEN accounts in general.

You won't see anti Sony comments on here, where have you been the past 5 years?

You people make me laugh. Quit trying to act like there is never any anti Sony comments on this site. Your comment right here is essentially an anti Sony comment itself. Grow up.

I'm a year older then you, grow up he says, ( if it be you were born in 1982)and your discernment is wrong concerning being an "anti Sony" comment. It was aimed toward fanboys, not Sony. Anti Sony would be bashing its product, doing good or bad. You err in knowing the meaning of this because you let your love if a company cloud your judgment..

Yes I know it's anti Sony comments on here, but it's dominated by fanboys who have no thought on logic, often times responding other fanboys with Bias comments themselves and the lot favoring his comment with loads of agrees..

Example the first comment, he was expecting a fanboy comment because that's all his train of thought is negative towards its competitor. Yet look at the agrees he has for his comment being immature.. Seems like more ppl promote strife and bickering about what's better rather then a logical conversation..

My love of a company? I buy every console each generation.

And the reason why there are so many "Vocal" PS fanboys these days is because of the crap they had to take from the 260 fanboys during the start of last gen. Every other article was either "PS3 is doomed", "PS3 has no games or "Sony is going to get out of the gaming industry".

And for the record, age has nothing to do with growing up. I was more of an adult at 19 than some people I know that are in their 40s.

Better to be safe than sorry I guess. Hhopefully with users paying for PS Plus now Sony has more money to put into it's online infrastructure. Beef up that security Sony, beef it up.
No doubt there are some asshole hackers out there that would get a kick out of messing with the PS4 and XOne during or directly after they launch. Of course the PS4 hasn't released in EU yet so this is kinda sketchy.

Hope everything is fine. Getting a Xbone soon but good luck PSFans, I mean it looks like you are getting Crash back so that's pretty epic.

Thanks bro, Its always nice when we can all get along and be respectful to eachother. We're all gamers after all, well most of us anyway. I think some people just want to watch the world burn.
