I didn't mean to sound rude or anything in my last post.

Technically "old news" was I think I heard about it on the 4th so it wasn't really that old. It's just becoming repetitive to hear more and more stories about Sony and their troubles. lol.

Sony to restore PSN Access on May 31. I hope they fix things up.

OMG not again. My son just changed his. And I had to get a new debit card man.

Went on their site. Nothing said about this?

I think the new issue just takes down the website for changing passwords. In the last breach, they got usernames and birthdates. Now, with that information, they can hit the new site, and change your password on you.

Im sure Sony has thought of that Scenario and put security in place so that does not happen.

From their site




We temporarily took down the PSN and Qriocity password reset page. Contrary to some reports, there was no hack involved. In the process of resetting of passwords there was a URL exploit that we have subsequently fixed.
Consumers who havenít reset their passwords for PSN are still encouraged to do so directly on their PS3. Otherwise, they can continue to do so via the website as soon as we bring that site back up.

wonder if this helped xbox live much, also apparently Japan still isn't allowing Sony to restore things there yet, until they prove they're secure.

I doubt Xbox really took off. Most consumers have too much invested in peripherals and games to just jump to another console. Besides, the Xbox 360's were notorious for hardware failures for their first few years. And the PS3 is a great BluRay player and the 360 doesn't provide that functionality at all.
