Recap of Sony PSN's Intrusion

Over the evening, while most of us were sleeping here in the states, Sony conducted a short-notice press conference regarding the intrusion of their PlayStation Network and Qriocity. Apologizes were extended by Kaz Hirai, Shinji Hasejima, and Shiro Kambe for the inconvenience that has been placed on customer, followed by a very touching and humble bow.

"Mr. Hirai confirmed that customer’s security codes for their credit cards were not compromised, and only a maximum of 10 million people use their credit cards on the PSN."

Sweet, expected more people to have their cc info the PSN though (like maybe atleast 20-30 million, outta 55 million people/77 million accounts). Can't wait to get on the Infamous 2 beta with the free 30 day PS+ deal.

thegamefanatics2666d ago

Yup, especially since it's been extended :)

squallheart2666d ago

This is why im still a loyal sony customer. Eventhough they have messed up in the past, they will always do their best for their customers especially now that hirai is there. Rather disheartening to read the past few days all this bashing thanks to all these "news" scare tactics.

Next week's PlayStation Network releases:

*The PlayStation Network.

Still hope they took this time to implement features available in the future* such as cross game chat

ExPresident2666d ago

Doubtful, they got enough on their plate already.

jonboi242666d ago

most likely not. chances are that will hear more about as e3 comes closer and chances are it will be ps+ exclusive.

B1663r2666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

They still dont realize that CC#'s and C2V numbers were compromised, I doubt there will be anything new on PSN for a good long while.


ROFL, scroll down this page, look at second item on related news. And quit Trollin Troll!

ExPresident2666d ago

You proof? I mean actual proof, not some guy just saying it happened to him?

Dante1122666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

Marked as trolling. Sony stated days ago that the CC was encrypted and that the CVV wasn't store on the PSN.

Dante1122666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

Links as my proof for B1663r

C C encrypted


CVV not stored

"Apparently, it was an error which he made since he has clarified that they did. However, he assured people that the company, although asked for the CCV codes, did not store them in their database."

I couldn't care less about cross game chat.

I just want Silent Hill and Street Fighter Alpha up for purchase on the Japanese PSN..

I just don't think it is fair that everyone get free PS+ now... what about the people who have been paying for it?

Dart892666d ago

You get an extra 30 days added to you're existing account.

FunAndGun2666d ago

they will get an additional 30-days added on for free.

jonboi242666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

they get a free month free. at least they get to keep there free ps+ for a while. those users who get ps+ for free won't get to keep their games when the free offer is done unless they sign up for it.

MrBeatdown2666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

Current subscribers get an extra month as well.

@PirateThom (below)

True, you don't really get an extra month of time, since it's just covering the time you missed, but you do get an extra month of content, so you would actually be getting a bonus.

Say you had a three month subscription for April, May, and June. You lose out on the April time, but you still get the April content. Since it is extended by a month, you get the content for April, May, June, and July.

PirateThom2666d ago

Yeah, depending on how long the service takes to come back up, you're really only getting the month you missed out on... while standard users are getting a month free...

Dante1122666d ago

Does Qriocity come with PS+? Also can you get free to DL songs off it?

rdgneoz32666d ago

It is not free with PS+. Also, its a music streaming service. Think of it like Netflix, you cna stream music and make play lists to play on your computer / PS3.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

If you have subscription of 1 year PS+, you already have 3 months free.

Now with this 30 days, you already have 4 months of PS+ for Free.

if anyone needs any specific answers regarding PSN PM ME. i will have an answer or to how your personal info will be protected i will have an answer for that as well.

thegamefanatics2666d ago

Why do people need to PM you?

TrashyNewz2666d ago

you dont have to but i prefer it. this is only for people who want a serious answer from someone with experience in the gaming industry and a robust knowledge of gaming news.

but if you dont agree so be it.

BangBangSami2666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

@MikePG, I am wondering what your experience is, mostly because I am doubting it isn't more than being an employee of Sony or PlayStation, or a dev company attached to them. *just sayin* Assuming you are just a gaming community member.

TrashyNewz2666d ago (Edited 2666d ago )

so you do know who gamasutra is correct THEGAMEFANATICS

thegamefanatics2666d ago

@MikePG You sir are funny, because no gaming news company puts their staff in a contractual agreement stopping them from saying who they work for.
Take your trolling elsewhere please ;)
