PlayStation Network: It's Alive
Posted on Saturday, May 14 @ 18:57:45 Eastern by Anthony Severino
After over 3 weeks of downtime and one of the biggest PR, security, and user-trust fiascoes in the history of video games, the PlayStation Network is beginning to be restored across the United States and the rest of the globe.
Sony, with a reinvigorated confidence, has announced that the PlayStation Network is about to be back in business. Only the following services will be available in the initial rollout:
The firmware update is mandatory and forces you to change your PSN ID's password. It's easiest done by simply logging into the PSN account on the PlayStation 3 it was activated on. Sold your PS3 or suffered from YLOD? Don't panic, a password reset can be sent to the email account that's tied to your PSN ID.
Sony is promising increased security, offering a free year of 'AllClear ID Plus', and a special "Welcome Back" package for PSN users affected by the security breach.
