Most professionals within the industry are concerned with one very noticeable snafu. Sony, enough is enough, E3 is almost here and you now need to worry about your presentation for the biggest gaming event of the year.
Sony in E3 protection mode, game "journalist" in hacker feeding frenzy. No matter what Sony announces this E3 the majority of internet stories will raise the question of PSN security.
ok so all the downtime , and apologies, and new down time are because journalist said it was so. Hmmmm, are you in denial or just have proof that Sony is not stressed over the E3 and the impact it will have after the 2011 event.
then where is your proof then ? How about actually doing a job , your job , and reporting actual news , rather than raising pointless hypotheticals than any gossip from a bar or barbershop can do ?
What new downtime? I'm on PSN right now.
Ok, whoever did this clearly have no life. They hacked PSN, but now this is getting ridiculous. Whoever is doing this, get a life, really. Well, not that it matters, it's a matter of time before whoever did it get caught, so his life is ruined anyway.
The main issue is how can Sony represent their progress in the gaming world if they are playing PR at E3 for the events this year. It will be a piece of cake if they can keep every thing up until then. That's my opinion.
My opinion is that this article is another sensational piece of "journalism" and that you are ignored for life on N4G.
While I agree the attacks on Sony should cease, both from the digital intruders and the press; one person can not define "a life" for another person.
I agree. I seemed heroic at first to some people but this is really getting pathetic.Your antics are more of an annoyance now then a threat. Just stop it.Sony is not messing around and is probably so pissed right now about what the stupid Anon people did to their network, that they are ready to nail someones butt to the wall. Don't let it be you. Just stop.
You think the guy would have enough with 12 millions credit cards, but it seems whoever is doing this is very greedy. Then again, no one got any fraudulent charges on their credit card because of PSN (all reports were fake or it was a coincidence) and while the site to change your password was unsecure, no one got his account stolen. It's safe to say the guy who did this just wanna make sony look bad and he is doing a pretty good job at it.
Sony has to remember that gamers don't worry about security with them as much as journalist do. We will pay to play no matter what. Most of the time anyway's.
I really find it hard to believe that these people were fighting for "consumer rights". At first maybe it started off in a good way, but as soon as they thought it was a good idea to bring PSN down it changed. No matter how good they thing their intentions are, they are just around to screw gamers over it seems.
I agree completely. Just concerned for Sony and the E3 presentation. This has to be difficult to handle.
Sony has a HUUUUGGGGEEEEE fan base for the struggle I personally believe they will do ok at E3.
only on xbox!
I have to agree. There is a mayjor concern for Sony's E3 event if they are still trying to apologize for hacks.
! But they will have to redeem themselves in some way!!
***The biggest concern for most gamers is the truth in regards to the security of the PSN vs the PR hype. *** Is this article attempting to imply what Sony has told us to date is a lie? And, even if it was, that they would suddenly make statements that would prove they were lying to the community? ***Although regarded as a rumor it has been reported that Sony has once again run in to hacker setbacks.*** News to me, unless you're talking about the Web site hacks which aren't at all tied to PSN. That's like saying a hack on the WhiteHouse.gov site is a hack against the defense systems of the Pentagon. PERSONAL CONCLUSION More poor journalism trying to keep the fanfare around the original PSN hack going combined with the fact that hackers are just continuing to target Sony related sites and have for the last month. I can't believe that any gaming journalist doesn't know the difference between an ISP owned only in part by Sony and the PSN. I also can't believe that anyone would think that the work done to secure PSN would suddenly secure every single site with the word "Sony" written in the footer.
Just seen sony on the news again in australia paaword sending people to fake site just lol .
Yeah yeah, and then E3 comes around, and Sony will be smacking us silly with games games & more games, and these pumba's will have to start all over again with their doomed! articles. Better hurry up now, next year we're all doomed. And if not, we'll be playing Starhawk=)
Leave Sony Alone!!!! pleeeaseeee!!! sob sob sob...
Ps3 games still selling really well on the big retailer websites... PS3 still has millions of players playing, PS3 still has lots of exclusives. Sony don't need to do anything more, they've offered coverage in case of fraud, they've offered free games. Journalists need to STFU and realise they wouldn't have a job if it weren't for the PlayStation (what's the point in a gaming website if the industry declines by like 40%)?
I just hope Sony doesn't waste its time and crack jokes at the PSN downtime.. like it does all those other times with sales
