E3: Amazing experience for the first time ever! WTF

That was sarcasm indeed. Are you watching the E3 right now? Have you seen Xbox and EA conference? Microsoft didn’t show anything good (a Halo remake? really? that’s it? no PC love?), EA had some good moments with Sims 4, the new Dragon Age and possibly another Mass Effect game – skipping all that sport games, not into that.

And by the way why the fuck are the guys on SPIKE TV talking about every single title like it’s a 10/10 game before it even went out. I hate it that those hosts on the E3 show are all about to orgasm from the amount of “amazing” games they’re showing. I know it’s money but come on!!!

E3 POOPFERENCE

But seriously Battlefield Hardline looks like another copy of Battlefield in some concrete crappy city with shiny streets and shit. Oh and speaking of street new Criterion Games title looks awesome!

Now waiting for Ubisoft. Will give another crappy report.

Are you watching E3 2014?

BTW Origin seems to be down thanks to the Battlefield Hardline beta annoucement on E3… games are gone from players lists and orders don’t come thourgh (got The Sims 3 expansion few minutes ago and it says it’s “pending”…).

PlayStation 4 won’t block used games, says Sony

Before today’s PlayStation 4 announcement, rumors had flown about whether or not Sony would implement a system to block users from playing second-hand games on the console. It wasn’t addressed in the company’s presentation, but now Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Worldwide Studios, has denied the reports.

Dual Shock 4

In response to a question by Eurogamer, Yoshida said:

[Consumers] purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that’s my expectation,” before declaring “Used games can play on PS4.”

Maybe they “can play” but what if they charge you for ‘unlocking’ a used copy? Like a code or something… There’s still a lot we don’t know about the PlayStation 4.

Will Microsoft implement a similar system?

PlayStation 4 officially announced

Check out the stream of what they are showing here. So far no optical drive announced, couple of cool features like DDR5 RAM on board (for system and graphics, shared) 8GB which is enough for the current games. They showed the new Killzone, inFAMOUS and a few more. The system UI looks slick, you can stream games to your friends, record them on the fly and the new Dualshock 4 looks pretty good (touchpad and a redesign).

93,000 Sony accounts were accessed by hackers… again!

93,000 accounts, 60,000 were PlayStation Network / Sony Entertainment Network accounts, and 33,000 were Sony Online Entertainment accounts.

It amounts to one tenth of one per cent of Sony’s total PSN, SEN and SOE audience. Sony has locked the accounts affected. Of the 93,000 accounts accessed, only a small fraction showed additional activity prior to being locked, Sony said. It is reviewing these accounts for unauthorised access.

“Please note, if you have a credit card associated with your account, your credit card number is not at risk,” Philip Reitinger, VP and Chief Information Security Officer of the Sony Group, wrote on the PlayStation Blog.

Sony has initiated requests for password resets for all accounts that had both a sign-in ID and password match through this latest attempt. If you’re in the group affected, you’ll receive an email from Sony at the address associated with your account that will prompt you to reset your password.

This latest attack rekindles memories of the much larger and more damaging hack Sony suffered in April.

The difference this time is that, according to Sony, the sign-in ID-password pairs used in the attempt on Sony’s networks appear to have been obtained from an outside source – not Sony’s networks.

“We have taken steps to mitigate the activity,” Sony said.

“We will work with any users whom we confirm have had unauthorized purchases made to restore amounts in the PSN/SEN or SOE wallet,” Sony promised.

“We want to take this opportunity to remind our consumers about the increasingly common threat of fraudulent activity online, as well as the importance of having a strong password and having a username/password combination that is not associated with other online services or sites,” Reitinger said.

“We encourage you to choose unique, hard-to-guess passwords and always look for unusual activity in your account.”

PlayStation gamers need to sign new agreement on PSN or they will be banned from the network

PSNSony has changed PSN’s terms and conditions and users have to agree to them next time they log in to PlayStation Network (the’ve added a section in which you can read that you won’t be able to sue Sony – in a group of people – for any security breaches, hacks etc). If they won’t agree to the terms their PSN account will be blocked.

The move comes months after a string of hacking attacks compromised over 100 million accounts of the PlayStation Network subscribers.

Gamers will now have to try to resolve any legal issues with an arbitrator picked by Sony, before being able to file a lawsuit.

The new clauses, dubbed "Binding Individual Arbitration," state that "any Dispute Resolution Proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general action".

PlayStation Network – an error killed the consoles

playstation-3-network-store

PlayStation 3  users all over the planet (the regular version, not PS3 slim) can’t login to the PlayStation Network, use their DLCs or earn achievements (and play some single player games).

The famous 8001050F error sets up the date in the device to January 1st 2000. What does it mean? It will disable your console.

Sony did react to all of this on their Twitter account saying:

PSN status update: We’re narrowing down the issue and continue to work to restore service to all. Updates as soon as we have them.

And the latest:

Here’s the latest info on PlayStation Network’s status: http://bit.ly/cZQKpn

Which has all the info: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2010/03/latest-info-on-playstation-network-status/

Does it sound familiar to you guys? It does to me, it’s just like Steam – when it’s down you can’t access any of that stuff and you can’t even play most of your games if you didn’t activate the offline mode at least once.
