Sony has addressed new details on PSN and the new security the system’s online interface will utilize, but this also brought about questions of account validation and how would previous security methods work in this transition.
I hope they get a security system as good as steam's, steam guard is very useful and combined with gmail 2 step verification it means the chances of my accout being hijacked are virtually nil
It's possible since they're a lot closer now, with Portal 2 being released with Steamworks support and Cross Platform play between PC and PS3. They're newfound relationship might help Valve help Sony.
I know this isn't about features but while they are at it can we PLEASE get a name change feature on the psn? I mean only thousands are asking for it.. -.-
So my brothers broken ps3 is what it needs to be reset on? Great.
It is great, just call customer service. They are nice people, called them a few times before.
I once had a jerk who was very sarcastic..but that was once out of like 6 different occasions.
@Craptain_Steel - I just added an alt source from a story that was live a few hours ago. I was also thinking the same thing, but apparently that's not the case.
"or through a validated email confirmation." Didn't you see that? ^
Crap!!! *quickly leaves to change access code for email that is the same as my PSN code* Yeah, I hate remembering ten different codes! Edit: Problem solved!
No.. you won't need your brother's broken PS3. They will release a firmware update to change passwords, this is the password that will need the ps3 your create it on in order to change it again, although will not be the only option.
i just cant wait for it to go live.
disagrees he isnt talkin about live(360), he is talkin about it goin online
look at the assholes who dont want PSN to go back up... sometime N4G users r similar to indigestion...
tell me about it...i just wish fanboys stay with there on topics because all it does it starts a mess...but yeah cant wait until psn is back I see almost on everysite may 3rd
Sony's road to recovery Step 1. Fire the hosting provider IMMEDIATELY Step 2. Sue the hosting provider Step 3. Locate a new SECURE data center Step 4. Bring PSN back online
they polly, already did somethin like that they fast trackin this as much a multibillion $ company can
This is an old article... Sony already said today that any ps3 you have used before with an account(an activated the psn name one or downloaded something) will work once the PSN comes back up. Why are people still fear mongering?
I know this has been bad for Sony but this has got to help them with hacked PS3's. This is gonna stop them all getting online for awhile.
im just more confused then ever now.my fat ps3 died a year ago.i have a new slim and cant for the life of me remember whats what.so im good right,just download firmware,somebody help. and also any info on when we will have online.i know this week,but i read may 3rd,may 4th,by weekend.just burnt out on this whole thing man. and ive read books,went camping.went fishing.i got a life,but part of my life is gaming.after work just wont to unwind by playin games with my friends.
Dude, Sony loses millions of dollars, yet they give us one month of PS+ for free... these guys are too generous!
I know right. If this happened on the other consoles you wouldnt get squat. nada...nothing.... Remember xboxlive been down a month and what we get. Nothing...nada.
Sony should try backing up some fire trucks to their server host and spraying sea water on it. Sure it will do some damage, but at least it will stop getting worse.
