STN Writes: Sony have confirmed that both trophies gain and any wallet funds before the outage have not been affected by the recent hack.
Well that's good to know. How long will it be before Sony's back on their feet again?
I read somewhere that some services will start to come back online within a week. So hopefully a full come back within 2?
WTF why are people worried about Trophies? As long as your PS3 doesn't die before PSN goes back up then there is no problem since all the trophies you get are stored on your PS3 locally and when PSN goes back up you just sync it with PSN to bring them up to date. I just have to say WOW that of all the things to be worried about, is something like Trophies, talk about a pretty sad life you must have if that is your biggest concern.
im still going to check the amount in my wallet to make sure its the same
Yeah and i can bet you there will be hundreds of posts about how peoples wallets have changed and they demand compensation *rolls eyes*
^ of course. But if it really does happen at anytime not just because of this, you can get it back. Thats why they send you the emails with the balance when you add funds.
AGAIN THIS IS NOT THERE FIRST TIME MAY 2008 http://www.shacknews.com/ar...
It's also hardly the only service to have suffered anything like this either so what's your point? I know people who've had IDs stolen, funds stolen and God knows what on tons of online spaces before anything happened with Sony and spoiled kids.
Thats good cuz I don't want to lose them trophies!!! Even i synced my trophies like a day before it went offline. Rejoice Trophy Hunters or as some actually like to be referred as TROPHY WHORES!!!
Can't you resync anyway, even if it was lost, since Trophies are on your HDD? To be honest, my trophy level was the first thing I thought of 0_o No way in hell am I going back for my Platinums, especially Bad Company 2's "Demolition Man"
yeah you can resync anyway. The problem some might have is if they switched/bought new a ps3 recently and it wouldn't have the trophies on their HDD, the only way they can get them is from the server they are saved onto.
i once thought i lost all my trophies and thought the same thing im not doing them again. Fortunately when i logged in and synced the trophies psn realized that the level it had was different and put them all back to what it had in the servers. I huge relief i thought the zero trophies may sync to the servers erasing the ones i had but it was smart enough to notice the difference and put the ones they had synced back on the system.
tell me about it man sure hate them demo kills hard to get...i did one time on point A on a snow map (with the creek/river down the middle)get a 3 kill demolition kill as 2 were n the building it started collapsing and a 3rd went in as it was fallin
YES! *continue to build up trophy level*
I'm so happy to hear this. I can now continue to play through Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 w/o worry that it'll be for nothing :D
Yay good news for Sony.
Nice. A reset trophy case would suck. As I mentioned in a different thread, I played some Lost Planet 2 earlier. And strangely enough it downloaded the 1.02 patch, but how is that possible when I'm not logged into PSN? Now all the LP2 trophies are gone, and they pop up randomly when I'm playing it. Anyone know what is up with that? I remember something similar happening when the PS3copalyse was happening. Those trophies that were synced came back then, so I hope these will too...
REALLY? Wow. I wonder if infamous will update it since I just picked it up (now's the time for SP games).
I have been playing Fist of The North Star: Ken's Rage for 20 hours, so I felt like blowing stuff up. The patch said it was installing trophies when the game booted up again, so I guess that can explain why are gone. Maybe the patch servers are separate or this was a freak occasion. Either way I hope it works out when I sync again...
yea, i dont understand. i can still download patches, but no psn. i hate to install a patch for splatterhouse.
Ya TROPHYS thats what id be worried about too.
BIG SIGH OF RELIEF. With card cancelled and now knowing this I can move on.
Good to hear but if the trophies did got affected I wouldn't care. I stopped playing for trophies a long time ago.
Well that's a good sign... and finaly an acctually IMPORTANT article lol... I hope no CC, debit cards, or personal info. of others have beeen affected...
Well that's a relief.
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS TROPHIES ARE SAFE!
I just recently beat assassins creed brotherhood and god of war 3 while this shit going on but don't worry guys psn will be back up probably by the weekend cus I want to play brink online with my buddies.
Relieved =D. Regarding my wallet funds. And the trophies is a bonus i suppose
Yeah that was my reaction too. I have got about 100 Nok in my wallet, but I was more worried about my trophies...
trophies are fun to get if u truly want to complete a game 100% but yeah i sure can understand it if u work hard for platinum or just a regular trophy that seemed impossible to get just to find out that its no longer there
What about the date and time setting of my PS3? Hey? Are they safe? Please don't tell me I'll have to change the time again.........Come on Sony don't worry about my personal details leakage, what about the time setting. Stupid
(From the article comments section): Its always "X of my friends" Damn lier, attention seeker. Stupid people placing to much personal data on the net is just that' Damn stupid.
It seems Sony just got lucky with all this breach now they need to be very alert from now on. I think PSN will be back up and running this friday.
