An internal memo issued by Sony has been leaked, somewhat ironically, that details Sony's new policy when it comes to fighting piracy and leakers by scanning their employees.
I smell smarties subway cookies xD
This is great Sony stepping up their security. It sucks that some Sony employee's would even leak stuff. If I had a job at Sony I would never risk losing it by leaking stuff.
Hopefully this means guys like us will have a better chance in working for them.
It's terrible people would steal from their employer and even worse risk their job for it. That said, this is the same approach our government is taking, treat every citizen as a suspect or terrorist. Yet, we see how well that is taken by the public. One of the things I think Sony did right, is to leave the game studios independent, but this (albeit not related to game studios) is not conducive to a productive and comfortable work environment. Don't chase your talent away!
I have worked for two employers that do similar scans on employees. Its not uncommon for tech based companies. Its not that big of a deal, and it doesn't make everyone feel like they are a suspect or terrorist.
this is sad .... people stop ur freaking use of sony's motto's and symbols to say they are dead ... Sony will still be there 500 years from now .... so get over it freaking jealous douchefaces
Great that Sony has learnt a lot from the hacks. And hopefully PSN wont get hacked again.
Yeah! Maybe that's how the key got in hacker's hands, because of somebody on the inside gave it out.
That's exactly how both ps3 and psp where hacked to some degree. The PSP got hacked because a psp was sent to be repaired and they used Sony official service memory stick ( jig stick ) and they left this in. Unlucky this ended up in the wrong hands. Ps3 is a lot more complicated as bits are not known due to secrecy of PS jailbreak company. It is known the jig stick was again left in the ps3 usb port these files ended up on the internet. But stuff was missing. 6 months later came the PS jailbreak who had managed to get service mode working (that's what jig is for ) then came the ability to access Dev mode then came CFW. both times Sony employees caused piracy to some degree on both platforms.
One step away from having grope feasts like the TSA
"Scanning employees"? Micheal Ironside will have their heads exploding!
nah, he died and Lawrence Dane took his body over at the end of the movie.
Just wait till the anal probing.
Getting ready to be first in line, aren't ya?
No. I don't work for Sony.
in denial much -_-
Sony should've gotten a plumber.
What really sucks is that a company making video games/systems would have to resort to this. I mean I could see this being an option at the Pentagon but just a bit hard to swallow for a company making games & systems. But, video games are big business as we have seen so if this is the step they need to take to ensure security then I guess you gotta do it.
I smell mafia interrogations. They're gonna weed the people out and have hitmen go after them, just like the movies. I'm kidding some people will probably really go to jail though. They're probably gonna go to jail pretty hard, man.
All of you above.. You do realize the idea of treating everyone like a criminal (Pre-crime) is the kind of totalitarian regime that is sweeping the world. A great chance of dieing by a bumble bee sting then terrorism yet your all treated like terrorists if you try to fly. I think you "kids" need to start seeing the BIG picture. Your freedoms will be gone by the time you have your own kids.
This isn't the time nor place to start with that business.... This is News 4 Gamers. Don't add to what is already something that shouldn't be here.
