PS3 online play back in EU and US after mid-April hack

Sunday, 15th May 2011 00:03 GMT By Staff

Sony has re-launched online play in Europe and the US for PSN following the release of a mandatory Firmware update last night

Kaz Hirai apologises for the downtime and explains how services are
being brought back online.

Firmware update 3.61 goes live

Sony comfirmed on the US PS Blog last night that online PS3 services – including gameplay – were to resume after being brought down on April 19.

New firmware has been release, taking PS3′s software to 3.61, and is a mandatory install. Here’s what you need to do:

If using a PS3, your password can only be changed on your own PS3 (or a PS3 on which your PSN account was activated), as an added layer of security. If you have never downloaded any content using your account on the system, an email will be sent to the registered sign-in ID (email address) associated with your account when you first attempt to sign-in to PSN. This e-mail will contain a link that will enable you to change your password. In this email, click on the link and follow the instructions to change your password. Once you have changed your password you can sign-in to your account using your new password.

We strongly recommend that all PSN account holders with PS3s update their systems to prepare for when PlayStation Network is back online. The release of this update is a critical step as we work to make PlayStation Network significantly more secure. Thank you for your continued support and patience.

In an update on the PlayStation Blog, communications head Nick Caplin has confirmed the company is experiencing email bounce backs from many major ISPs flooded with massive numbers of password reset emails sent out by Sony.

Players awaiting password reset emails are advised to be patient while Sony attempt to resolve this issue.

Before you start using PlayStation Network

In restoring PSN, Sony has introduced a safety measure which means you will need to update your PSN account password before you can start using the service again.

If you’ve got a PS3, you can do this by updating to system software version 3.61 and then signing in to PlayStation Network from the XMB (XrossMediaBar) Menu. Otherwise, you can change your password on your PC here.

Sony is currently working with various law enforcement agencies to find the culprits who hacked into the PS networks last month, and hacker group Anonymous has admitted that some of its members may have gone rogue and caused the servers to be brought down without support from the full collective.

Phased service restoration being implemented

Sony was expecting to bring more services online at the end of last week, but delayed the launch until it felt better security measures had been implemented.

This update shows that the first US phase of PSN’s restoration is now complete.

PSN and Qriocity services will be resumed on a country by country basis, beginning in the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.

This has now begun in Europe following last night’s rollout in the US, with UK, Ireland and the Middle-East being the first in the EU regions to get the service back online, according to a tweet from the PlayStation Blog EU.

The first phase of restored services for North America and Europe will include:

  • Sign-in for PlayStation Network and Qriocity services, including the resetting of passwords.
  • Restoration of online gameplay across PlayStation 3 and PSP.
  • Playback rental video content, if within rental period, of PlayStation Store Video Store on PS3, PSP and Media Go.
  • Q Music Unlimited, for current subscribers, on PS3 and PC.
  • Access to third party services such as VidZone and MUBI.
  • ‘Friends’ category on PS3, including Friends List, Chat Functionality, Trophy Comparison, etc.
  • PlayStation Home.
  • Increased Security Measures

Working closely with “several respected outside security firms,” Sony said it has implemented new and additional security measures that “strengthen safeguards against unauthorized activity, and provide consumers with greater protection of their personal information.”

Sony said it has made considerable enhancements to the data security, including updating and adding advanced security technologies, additional software monitoring and penetration and vulnerability testing, and increased levels of encryption and additional firewalls.

The company also added a variety of other measures to the network infrastructure including an early warning system for unusual activity patterns that could signal an attempt to compromise the network.

The moment we signed into PSN
for the first time since April 19. Go team.

“I’d like to send my sincere regret for the inconvenience this incident has caused you, and want to thank you all for the kind patience you’ve shown as we worked through the restoration process,” said Kazuo Hirai, Sony’s executive deputy president, in a press release.

“I can’t thank you enough for your patience and support during this time. We know even the most loyal customers have been frustrated by this process and are anxious to use their Sony products and services again. We are taking aggressive action at all levels to address the concerns that were raised by this incident, and are making consumer data protection a full time, company-wide commitment.”

“During the past 18 months, we’ve seen a dramatic rise in the volume of cyber attacks, their sophistication and their impact on businesses. Thwarting cyber-crime requires an evolutionary approach to security that is well integrated, reduces risk exposure and improves efficiencies,” added Francis deSouza, senior vice president, Enterprise Security Group, Symantec.

“Today’s cyber crime attacks are proving to be more covert, more targeted and better organized than those we’ve seen in years past. In working with Sony on the move of their data centre, it’s clear they’re implementing measures to reduce security risks moving forward.”

As an additional measure, Fumiaki Sakai, president of Sony Global Solutions Inc. has been appointed acting Chief Information Security Officer of SNEI. In addition to his current role at SGS, Mr Sakai, in his role at SNEI, will work to further reinforce overall information security across the company’s network infrastructure.

“While we understand the importance of getting our services back online, we did not rush to do so at the expense of extensively and aggressively testing our enhanced security measures. Our consumers’ safety remains our number one priority,” Hirai continued. “We want to assure our customers that their personal information is being protected with some of the best security technologies available today, so that everyone can feel comfortable enjoying all that PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have to offer.”

The restoration of the services across the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East are beginning, and company expects to have the services fully restored by the end of May 2011.

Welcome Back

Sony has also detailed a Welcome Back package of services and premium content to all registered PSN and Qriocity account services, which will be available for viewing on your regions respective PS Blog soon.

Make sure to keep an eye on the US or EU PS Blog for more updates.

    Downloaded the update (as fast as usual), managed to install it, but get a message that PSN is under maintenance. I guess it will be a few hours more before it’s back here in Europe.

    Some US people can play though, by the looks of it.

  55. Phoenixblight

    @54

    Read what it says up there. There is a link for you to sign in which after than it will send an email you with instructions to change password.

    #55 3 years ago
  56. KrazyKraut

    “If using a PS3, your password can only be changed on your own PS3 (or a PS3 on which your PSN account was activated), as an added layer of security. If you have never downloaded any content using your account on the system, an email will be sent to the registered sign-in ID (email address) associated with your account when you first attempt to sign-in to PSN. This e-mail will contain a link that will enable you to change your password. In this email, click on the link and follow the instructions to change your password. Once you have changed your password you can sign-in to your account using your new password.”

    yep…but I used all three accounts to buy/download things on my first PS3 there…so it means no e-mail? and i tried on all three accounts to log-in..and got no e-mail. sorry…maybe I am really stupid now^^

    #56 3 years ago
  57. Detale

    As I understand it, if you’ve ever purchased anything from PSN then you will have to change your password via your PS3 when PSN access is restored later today. You won’t get an email.

    But I could have completely misunderstood the whole process.

    #57 3 years ago
  58. AHA-Lambda

    just to double check i cant change my password yet until PSN actually comes up in the UK yea? =/

  76. galaxy366

    So i life in Holland, My brother removed my account from the ps3 sometime ago. Now i want to redeem my portal 2 code, can he then sign in with my account? but it needs a new password so how?…

    Thx for helping me ^^

    #76 3 years ago
  77. Phoenixblight

    @76

    You can’t have Portal 2 on the PC then. One) You go to Steam to put the code in and then you have to access your PS3 and activate the code from there. SO you need the PS3 for that

    2) You can change the password from the PC link up top then you have to wait until you receive an email telling you have to change your pw. It took 3 hours for me to get that email but by that time I just went on the PS3 to do so.

    #77 3 years ago
  78. galaxy366

    @76

    Hmm… Don’t know if i explained it right.
    The PS3 has profile’s, one is his, and one is mine. On my profile he removed my psn account ( not deleted ) but just removed. So to redeem the code i have to sign with my account on PSN. The thing i would like to know is, ”Is that possible?” as it will mean that i will sign in with my old password.

    Maybe i just didn’t understand or something else, hope you don’t mind :)

    #78 3 years ago
  79. Phoenixblight

    @78

    Have to change your password and then once that is fixed you have to go to Portal 2on the PS3 to link your PSN account to the steam account you used the Portal 2 code.

    UK isn’t back up, it’s still gimped. Sucks that the land of the xbox buyers (USA) get switch on priority.

    They are not loyal Sony customers.

    Hmm… doesn’t seem to be on, does it? Did they check the fuses?

    Isn’t it on in the UK? I was playing games on it in France last night.

    I’m trying to change my password and the UK PSN site says “offline” and won’t let me log in.

    Well that’s odd. Maybe they turned off web-based logins to favour the gamers or something.

    Oh well.

    I’m definitely still signed in (i left it on all night, leaving a movie on repeat), and one of my friends has just signed in. So it’s definitely back. It’s probably just teething problems at the mo with traffic, nothing else.

    @Blerk – Go to the US site/blog site. I did one of mines there.

    However due to traffic, some emails are taking their sweet time, or not getting through.

    Ah, right – that works, does it? I might do that in a bit, then – cheers.

    Probably “soon” then.

    #131 thanks for the link mate, but now iam more worried, that maybe is just my PS3 o_O, or maybe is the high traffic, hope today at night can login.

    Finally, just the Morning was I able to sign in a change my password. The Network Congestion must be extremely heavy right now.

    I went into PS Home, most of the spaces are sparsely populated right now. Of course you can’t buy anything, and almost all Home games are offline, but it is a start in the right direction.

    Of course, I deleted CC information, though the CC was cancelled when they shut it down a month ago. I will only be using PSN cards from now on.

    You are able to go into your download history and see everything that was downloaded from your account. My Download History looks perfectly fine, so it doesn’t look like any funds have been taken out of my account.

    So the Healing process has begun, and I look forward to it being 100%.

    H-Home? People are actually using Home?

    @134 I actually have started enjoying Home, it has quite a bit of Potential. I like the Sodium One Hub, and enjoy playing the The Hover Craft game, and the Novus Space MMO, has quite a bit of potential as well! I was playing Free Realms as well, though it is a little kiddy for my taste.

    I can see where they are heading with it, and what they want it to become. It would be a great place for games like Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3, WoW, and Starcraft.

    I will admit, I do enjoy my Home Spaces….And since they are Adding Arcade Cabinets and Pool Tables and such that you can place in your Home Spaces, I am enjoying that as well.

    Home actually has quite a bit of potential!
