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.

@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.

*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.

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

BubbleSniper2781d ago

they fast trackin this as much a multibillion $ company can

C_Menz2781d ago

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?
