Sony Online Entertainment Network Was Also Compromised

posted in: Game News | 0

sony-online-entertainmentSony’s troubles continue with the recent announcement (and realization) that 24.6 million S.O.E accounts were also leaked on April 16th and 17th. For those who haven’t been keeping tabs on dates, the PlayStation Network and Qriosity services were compromised between April 17th and 19th.

During a press conference over the weekend, Sony addressed the media and divulged a bit of info concerning passwords and hinted at some kind of “Welcome Back” program.

Details on their “Welcome Back” package (thus far) are as follows:

  • Each territory will be offering selected PlayStation entertainment content for free download. Specific details of this content will be announced in each region soon.
  • All existing PlayStation Network customers will be provided with 30 days free membership in the PlayStation Plus premium service. Current members of PlayStation Plus will receive 30 days free service.
  • Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity subscribers (in countries where the service is available) will receive 30 days free service.

It’s difficult to get excited about these things.

Hopefully the recent turn of events doesn’t impede the return of PlayStation Network sometime this week.
