We all know (or hopefully so) about the recent security breach in the PSN. I’m sure we have plenty of followers who are Playstation owners and couldn’t be more disappointed. However, Sony is being sued, and this isn’t the only lawsuit to follow.
Over 75 million have had their personal data invaded, stolen, or missing. There were also complaints that Sony took too long to alert their customers of the situation.
They are at risk of losing billions of dollars, not to mention customers and future business.
What’s to come of sony?
A few things to know about the hacking:
- If you’ve used your credit card at all for the PSN (one isn’t needed to sign up for an account), now is the time to change it.
- You ARE at risk if you have an account period. Your name, addresses, and other account information are all at risk.
- 75 million is a big number, watch your credit score even if you didn’t use a credit card, they still have tons of information.
- Sony has said that the PSN will be up in the next week, hopefully.
- Anonymous (4chan) has publically denied being involved in any way. I can’t confirm if this is true, since I’ve stayed off /b/ for some time now.
It’s so refreshing to see a release from Sega! This is the first trailer for Binary Domain, a shooter taking place in 2080 after robots have taken over Tokyo. The graphics aren’t as spectacular as some might expect, but overall it looks beautiful. The game is set to release in early 2012 for PlayStation and XBOX.

Watch out gamefly and blockbuster, competition is brewing! Redbox announced that they will be offering game rentals starting on June 17th. They will cost $2 a night, wheras movies are $1 (Blueray $1.50).
Now, overall it seems like a great idea. However, Blockbuster offers 5 day rentals for $9. And with gamefly you can have two games a month for a subscription fee of $22.95. However the convenience and non-dedication makes it so appealing.
Although, it will be mostly catering to games for the wii, I wouldn’t be surprised if as the popularity grows, so will the selection.
With Redbox, if you keep a movie for 25 days without returning, you own it. I wonder what the cap for the game will be.
