The PlayStation Store remains inaccessible, but online play is back
After more than three weeks of downtime, Sony has begun bringing the PlayStation Network back online.
Earlier today, a firmware update (v3.61) was released that forces users to change their PSN passwords. Out of security concerns for PS3 users, this password reset has to be done through a PS3 system that your account was activated on. If you’ve never downloaded anything on your PS3 before, you’ll need to change the password through an e-mail sent to the e-mail address attached to your PSN account.
With all of the recent chatter about a new system coming from Nintendo next year, there’s been little-to-no mention of the competition. We’ve heard about how the Wii 2 — or whatever it may end up being called — will be announced at E3 in June, its touchscreen and camera-equipped controller, and how Rockstar may be on board to develop games for it. Whether or not every last detail about it is true, where do Microsoft and Sony stand with their respective follow-ups to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3?
he PSP Go might have been nixed, but Sony’s flagship console is still alive and kicking, with a fourth generation Playstation planned for 2014. The Playstation 4 or PS4, looks to be several years away, but with games just beginning to tap into its 3D capabilities, is anyone waiting to upgrade their PS3?
