Have A PS3? Your PSN Account May Have Been Hacked

For the last few days, the Playstation network has been down. Now this news appeared on the Playstation blog:

We are currently working to send a similar message to the one below via email to all of our registered account holders regarding a compromise of personal information as a result of an illegal intrusion on our systems. These malicious actions have also had an impact on your ability to enjoy the services provided by PlayStation Network and Qriocity including online gaming and online access to music, movies, sports and TV shows. We have a clear path to have PlayStation Network and Qriocity systems back online, and expect to restore some services within a week.

Oh joy. PSN accounts hacked and personal info exposed. That’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. If you have a PSN account, I’d read their blog post as it has info you really need to know.

In the meantime, I suspect that Xbox sales are about to go up.
