Uncharted 3 Beta Stats

It came, it saw, it blew our minds. The Unchart­ed 3 beta has wrapped up and now we have to wait until Novem­ber to get to the fun again. Playsta­tion post­ed some num­bers on the beta say­ing it was the largest beta on the Playsta­tion net­work to date. Here’s some food for thought: ‑Total unique Beta play­ers: 1.53 mil­lion peo­ple ‑Total kills: 1.9 bil­lion ‑Total Cash col­lect­ed: 1.4 TRILLION dol­lars (that’s greater than the gross domes­tic prod­uct of Spain, the eleventh high­est GDP in the world!) ‑Total shots fired: 48 bil­lion ‑Total match­es com­plet­ed: 22 mil­lion ‑Total time played: More than 362 years worth of match­es Yea pret­ty insane it what I thought too.

When It Rains, It Pours

Boy oh boy.…I guess it will get worse before it gets bet­ter. Where to start? Well every­one knows about the hack and loss of data. Time for the legal stuff.  About a week ago a law firm filed a class action law­suit on Sony… that was only the begin­ning. Today a Toron­to law firm  McPhad­den Samac Tuovi LLP, filed against Sony Japan, Sony USA, Sony Cana­da, and “oth­er Sony enti­ties”, say­ing  Sony must pay their client for the “costs of cred­it mon­i­tor­ing ser­vices and fraud insur­ance cov­er­age for two years”. Oh and here’s the kick­er they are suing for the low, low price of one bil­lion dol­lars. Sounds like the kind of num­ber a com­ic book vil­lian would ask for ran­som of a city. If two law­suits weren’t enough, Sony had to answer to the U.S. House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. Sony’s CEO, Kazuo Hirai,Read more…

Sony Gives Us the Bad News

Well after almost a week with out our beloved Playsta­tion Net­work, Sony gives us the news. Appar­ent­ley it was­n’t Skynet tak­ing over.….my bad. Sony said it was hacked and the hack­er or hack­ers were able to get access to 70 mil­lion user pro­files. Sony released this state­ment: “Although we are still inves­ti­gat­ing the details of this inci­dent, we believe that an unau­tho­rized per­son has obtained the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion that you pro­vid­ed: name, address (city, state, zip), coun­try, email address, birth­date, PlaySta­tion Network/Qriocity pass­word and login, and handle/PSN online ID,” wrote Patrick Sey­bold, senior direc­tor of cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions for Sony Com­put­er Enter­tain­ment Amer­i­ca. “It is also pos­si­ble that your pro­file data, includ­ing pur­chase his­to­ry and billing address … and your PlaySta­tion Network/Qriocity pass­word secu­ri­ty answers may have been obtained. … While there is no evi­dence at this time that cred­it cardRead more…

The End Has Come

  Well as most have heard or encoun­tered the Playstaion Net­work is down. It has been down for about three days now. Now breath as you read I know its hard. This prob­lem could­n’t have come at a worse time for Playsta­tion either with the releas­es of Socom 4, Por­tal 2, and Mor­tal Kom­bat this week. I too am vic­tim for I can­not play Socom 4.….it still hurts. Now Sony has come out and said oh we have a serv­er hic­cup it should be fixed in two days time. Only it has­n’t been fixed. Sev­er­al excus­es and rea­sons for the out­age have made their way to the web includ­ing too much serv­er traf­fic with the new realses, down­load­able games crash­ing the serv­er, or even a hack­er attack. Basi­cal­ly what it boils down too is my games don’t work and IRead more…
