well anyone who saw the conference would know. :/ im pretty sure this is old news.

I know really everything is tomorrow or this week, it's just something we have to cope with until it comes back. They said this week but then SOE was attacked so that may delay what happens to PSN. I understand its frustrating, I am too but patience is key to this whole situation unfortunatley as consumers we can't do anything about this.



SOE wasn't attacked, it's servers were put down for updating because of the PSN intrusion. If you had been following it should be obvious, all Sony online services and networks had to be updated to close the breach points hackers used to invade PSN.

You are not the first person saying it, not your fault, but there is already too much misinformation around, check your facts before spreading up the drama.

Sorry but I think you are wrong. SOE sent me an Email stating that they were attacked as well. Here is the first paragraph:

"Dear Valued Sony Online Entertainment Customer:
Our ongoing investigation of illegal intrusions into Sony Online Entertainment systems has discovered that hackers may have obtained personal customer information from SOE systems. We are today advising you that the personal information you provided us in connection with your SOE account may have been stolen in a cyber-attack. Stolen information includes, to the extent you provided it to us, the following: name, address (city, state, zip, country), email address, gender, birthdate, phone number, login name and hashed password."

Based on that it seems that SOE was attacked either as part of the same attack as what they took the PSN down for or a separate attack.

This is old news. This was posted on the PS Blog several days ago...

"In addition, PS3 will have a forced system software update that will require all registered PlayStation Network users to change their account passwords before being able to sign into the service."


@madcowz64 & Elwenil

Yeah man, my bad.

Although Sony did close other servers over the first intrusion, SOE was in fact attacked.

I was following the first reports on monday... those they state that the service was brought down due to recent intrusions, not because of a new one.

But about 7 hours after (I just checked N4G submit history) this same e-mail you quoted were posted in here too... I missed it.

My bad, I guess all the news coming every second, many times without anything new to add and actually misinforming, I got cought in the middle and spread the fud myself... My bad...

fluffydelusions2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

Play portal 2 on is free with ps3 :)

darthelghast2786d ago

Don't you have to connect your PSN account with your Steam account to play it? I've heard people say they couldn't play it for that reason.

DaCajun2786d ago

Yes you needed to have your PSN and Steam accounts linked before they shut it down to play Portal 2 on your PC otherwise the code will not work. Tried it and it tells me to link my PSN and Steam account first.

"Confirmed: PS3 to Receive 3.61 Update" "There is no official source of this news other than directly from the Japanese website using google translate."

I see N4G hasn't changed much. *facepalm*

llMurcielagoll2786d ago

The feeling is mutual InFAMOUS1.. The feeling is Mutual. PSN is offline for about 2 weeks already and we are approaching the third. But according to the press conference held in Japan should be online again sometime this week and I really hope that wasn't just an assumption.

krauley2786d ago

Why are you in a hurry to read "Help! The hackers stoled my information and updated my ps3 with firmware 3.61 and now its bricked!" articles?


egidem2786d ago

Like I said, people are getting desperate. It's getting crazy out there! Once PSN goes back online, I'm gonna have some fun. For now, I'm enjoying getting my ass kicked (again and again) playing Demon's Souls.

I had a thought, wouldn't you guys love to like look into the future at say firmware update 7.61 to find out what features are in the firmware??

Ricco-Warrior2786d ago

this is going to be one of those weeks again

andron2786d ago

Sony said so themselves in the Security update on their blogs, so why is this news?

All I want now are:

1: PSN up and running, as secure as can be.
2: The wankers how did this behind bars...
