So has Sony been hacked again? My login won't work and sites are saying they've sent out a "precautionary" mass password reset? I've not received anything to change my password, it just won't let me log in.

Same here - glad it's not just me.

It let me manually change my password last night using the "forgotten password" link and then I could log in.

I fired an email off to customer services this morning to ask what was going on, also pointed out it was a bit of a concern that they don't have a standard "You're password's been changed" notification...

Anyone know what's happening with Ratchet & Clank: Nexus? Is it out or not? I can't find it for download on the store?

Edit: Never mind, found it!

Couldn't sign in on website or vita until I changed my password.

I'd be interested to know why they thought some accounts needed their passwords resetting. Something must have happened.

As I say here I was the victim of card fraud last night. Could be a coincidence, but it did come mere hours after this big forced password reset. I'm half hoping that it was all a coincidence, would suck for something big to happen to these guys again.

Edit: Oh, I mention this on the link, but guess I should state it here too - make sure you double check statements etc to double check nothing dodgy has happened to you if you had to password reset recently too.

Hmm just checked my CC connected to my PSN account and there's nothing dodgy on it. Hopefully it's not connected.

I've not had any problems getting on PSN, so fingers crossed all is fine.

Persona 5 announced for PS3

Winter 2014 in Japan though, so looking at 2015 over here I guess? The PS3 will be hanging around for a while.

Anyone else experiencing painfully slow download speeds on PS3? It was fine until yesterday. We were watching music videos on Vidzone and it kept stuttering, so I did the internet connection test via network settings, and it either fails, or gives me a download speed of 200k per second (!) as opposed to 30mb per second which I get on the laptop. It's a wired Ethernet connection. Rebooted everything a few times too.

I've just had two emails from the Sony Entertainment Network this morning - one stating "your password has been updated" and a second saying my "Sign-in ID" has been changed. Is this related to the mass reset?

Rang customer support and they claim my account is Canadian (I did set up a US account at one point but not under the PSN username I gave him) and as such can't do anything for me - I apparently have to contact Sony US.
