STN Writes: Sony Corp’s Executive Deputy President Kazuo Hirai is to host a news conference on Sunday regarding the security breach of the companies PlayStation Network, the Japanese electronics giant said.
Sounds very apple like here. Lets just hope they do not come out and say everyone has this problem because that pissed me off when apple said that about their signal issue. It seamed they never really apologised and never accepted any sort of responsibility.
Sony can say whatever the f*ck Sony wants tomorrow.
@Eamon Idk... Let's just move along and act like we didn't see that, lol.
Yeah it is funny that you automatically assume we're Xbox fanboys just because I was confused by such a retarded comment. But I will follow JAMurida's advise and just move along lol
i want compensation ! i want tacos!!!
@eamon: what's retarded about someone who's not interested in online multiplayer and only plays SP gems like team Ico games? Do you know what's retarded and immature? This: "lolwut?"
You will be disappointed ComboBreaker
nevimkdojsem2. Umm, how do you know he only plays single player games? This article is about the current predicament of PSN and Sony announcing they will hold a press conference about it. His comment was completely off-topic that had no relevance and down right looked idiotic. If you can't understand that, then you need to get checked, Mr. Fanboy. Geez, some weird nerdy kids these days.
It's already been pushed back. It will not come out this year :( http://www.wired.com/gameli...
sounds like the psn isnt coming back anytime soon
@ logicwins: "^^Free pizzas!" didn't anonymous already do that?
@ComboBreaker AGREED SIR!!!
They'll Say: it all started with the hobbit claiming he made his ps3 do something funky with Other OS feature, so we had to remove it, then later this thing called PSJailbreak came out but it was expensive, then later this new free one came out but you needed to be a Super Nerd to make a chip... Then this Damn Eazy one came out by Geohot and lotsa peoplez was hacking and getting free games and playing super mario, so we fixed it and sued the hobbit, and the Hard Kore Nerdz Anonomous Wannabes, Tried to Overload Stuff , but then they were bored and found some files and it had sensitive information ,so we Had to Shut The B***H Down.. And this is where were at Now
Hopefully they will announce that they will bring it back up sooner than expected :) ---------edit--------- How does Eamon still have bubbles?
They never did but I hope this guy say some thing and when PSN will be back because I wanna play some online game.
All Kaz has to do is come out and say "RIIIIDGE RACEERRRRRR!!!!!" then leave.
I just bought a new replacement ps3 and wanted to check out whats new in the store and restore my psn account
I can't sit about and not correct the fact that you wrote seamed instead of seemed, my inner grammar nazi is screaming
Sorry I do admit my grammar is really bad. I read through my comments before I submit it but some do slip through the cracks
It's understandable, I do the same but when I see mistakes like that I can't help myself
Should that maybe be the spelling Nazi? His grammar was not so poor as his spelling was the issue in his post.
Legion I know but who calls themselves a spelling Nazi?
This is tonight in the US @ 9PM Est 6PM Pst
That's when UFC 129 starts. GSP vs. Shields > Kaz Hirai.
@Megaton- ^^Yeah, I'd like to see if I can stream it. I know that its illegal for the uploader to upload PPV content, but I'm not sure if its illegal for average joes to view uploaded content.
just a thought im guessing it won't be in english so how are we going to know what he's saying? please correct if im wrong... LONG LIVE THE GAMER!
It isn't illegal for you to watch the content, its only illegal for them to provide it. Also I think the law is under scrutinize anyways. Why cant you stream regular channels? They still show the commercials....
LMAO. PSN > UFC to most people that read this website. nice try though ;)
From article "According to the news release, Hirai will speak at 2:00 p.m. Japan time (9.00pm PST, 12.00am EST, 5.00am BST, 6.00am CET)" So go ahead an enjoy UFC, then get the news at midnight eastern
They'll cover what we know, announce the exact date PSN will be back and then discuss the reimbursement for DC universe players atleast.. My thoughts anyway, i just hope it hurries up so we can get back to online gaming and enjoy some awesome exclusives as well as being hyped for up coming exclusives instead of being stuck in this circle of doom and gloom which we're currently in :D
Clean up buisness here Sony and than bring us home the crowd next month for E3. Can't wait.
crowd???? Do you mean crown??? Which would make more sense.
No he meant crowd, Sony is going to kidnap everyone at E3 during the Microsoft conference.
I hope they clear up somethings that the people dont understand and this press conference will just stop those uneducated news stations on reporting total bs,hope to see a date on when we can use the psn again,about the compensation,why would anyone want that but ps+ users,i mean we get it for free
I think there's a real chance here for Sony to actually make this up to users. I hope he doesn't just reiterated what is on the blog and actually explains what happened and what they've done about it.
No, more is needed than a retelling of what's available on the normal Sony mouthpieces. We need to know when it's back up, where it's going back up first etc, what measures are in place for compensating Plus and DCU gamers AND what the odds are on anything similar happening again. Kaz is usually a safe pair of hands for Sony in PR terms but there's real danger here for arrogance and old school Sony slip ups in snatching defeat from the jaws of a great opportunity to cast light on not just the PSN issue but the whole murky world of "gamers" who have a primary game of pissing the rest of us off without concern for future games, gamers or those who make them. It's a Sony issue, sure, but if he leaves it there he, imho, misses a big chance of showing this is a GAMING issue and one that is best stopped by gamers making the unsocial actions of a large minority among us totally unacceptable by the rest, by the vast majority of us gamers. This crap needs to stop and Sony just shoring up their end is, to me, a bit like brushing this matter under the rug that all gaming and most IT share. I'm hoping for a bit of a rallying call to be frank.
I hope he (kaz) does it in a rap style then ends it with a moonwalk off stage.
No, he'll make awkward quips like "it's Ridge RACERRR" Riiiiiidge Racerrr! hehehe, I always thought he did a fine job at E3, trenton does fine too.
@mikeyy or he will come out on stage with a psp go put it on the floor and then pull out a big fuck off sledge hammer and smash the crap out of it then say "ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED" then dive bomb into the press pit lol.
i hope for some good news, psn being back online soon ... :)
I think they will make PSN better than ever and include new features (ex: cross game chat) Personally I only want PSN to get back up so I can unlock my pc version of portal2 + see how steam works on ps3.
I care more about security at this point than cross game chat.
Aww....looks like those unprofessional websites are gonna miss making those fish-for-hits articles once the press conference runs. Well, I doubt it. I can only imagine the headlines after sony airs their conference. "Despite Reassurace, Sony's damage remains irreparable" "Sony. A dying brand" "Too little too late sony!!" "Forever in teh third place!!!" And the list goes on. Im probably giving some users ideas right now lol!
you misspelled the
No that was intentional lol!
He spelled it correctly. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...
I think Jon was joking, at least I hope he was :-/
you failed sarcasm 101?
You guys took what he said completely out of context. He is exactly right. Even though Sony will settle things tomorrow, sites will probably still try to run some of those exact headlines that he's stating. People should go back and read his topic sentence. You don't even deserve those disagrees buddy. @Finnhima, Bubble vote +1
;) lol Thanks man!
Dont go to the website, it's just that simple.
Agree - Bubble for Finnhima.
ya right all those websites are gonna be like "is it enough?" "what else should sony have done?" "what should sony do now?" they never stop, its like the media and obamas birth certificate, hes given them three different proofs of his birth, what else do they want?!? lol
Bad news beats good news to most media outlets. Just the way it is. We change it by only using reliable, clever and honest outlets and sites in future and help prevent cheap runs of hacks gathering hits for ad revenue as we move forwards. Seriously, we will reap what we sow.
I agree mastiffchild - bad behaviour must not be rewarded. If we all follow this principle, there will be a swift change of tune.
There is already a change in tune. Look at any other industry. Do you see any entertainment place that doesn't talk negative about stars? How many of them dont cover Charlie Sheen? How many of them put negative twists in Heeth Ledgers death? etc... It just so happens the tech industry is growing, and they are starting to figure it out. Talk crap about Sony, get hits, hump their leg a month later, then do it again. Look at Cnet or IGN for PRIME examples. Killzone 2 released "AMAZING" Killzone 3 released "Sony Exclusives are sub par!" Cnet couldn't even give Sony props for Netflix.
A press conference on the weekend?
Actually, though "Tomorrow"...or...no w..today, since it's past midnight here in Michigan, maybe today is Monday in Japan. Can anybody confirm or deny? I'm not sure of the time difference. :o) Hope the press conference goes well.
Sony is a world leader in most of its products . If this takes longer rather than sooner then so be it . The network will be the world leader when it is back online.
I thought it would have been done day 2.
the same person, or people that hacked psn, should hack into his personal computer to steal his speech so we can find out what hes going to say, right now!! because im bored :(
'schedule to resume services.' Yay....Actual tangible news. Useful information....That's made my day.
This is probably going to be one of the most important questions we want an answer to. I would like at least an estimate than to let us wait in the dark.
Tomorrow we will get a time frame a clip or screenshots of what the new network will be working on and how new features will work and what safe and not.
Hirai will announce that the Yakuza will be involved if the situation gets worse :P
if thats the case im staying out of this D:
