Honestly at this point it wouldn't surprise me if it came out that Sony's CEO had run over a gypsy and had been cursed for it.
I mean what were they thinking when they came up with the PSP Go?
Apart from my PS3 I don't have any Sony gear, and even that was free with a phone. I can't say I would of honestly bought one otherwise because I just dont reckon I would have had the cash or the care. It's not a bad piece of kit, but I am abit shocked about the PR side of things for this situation. Even if they didn't know how bad it was to begin with, surely you'd assume the worst case sceanrio?
Front page of Metro here in London in all its knee-jerky-let's-scare-everyone glory. This has to shake consumer faith in Sony, I bet it's all high fives in Redmond this morning.
After hearing the ridiculous way that the PS3 encryption keys were broken* this is not so surprising. It even makes me wonder that this seems to come a little too quickly on the back of the PS3 security breaking issue. They can't have used the same keys... could they?
*Explanation: In short the encryption algorithm requires a random number, combined with Sony's 'private' key to generate a 'public' key for each bit of software. The PS3 trusts anything that has a correct public key, because it's impossible to create a public key without Sony's private key.
Except they haven't been using a random number for each bit of software - they've used the same number for everything, which made figuring out the private key a doddle. Oops.
There's a lot more scaremongering going around at the moment that Xbox Live is currently under some difficulties. Probably nothing to do with PSN being down but there's always that feeling of what if.
Edit: This is also rather hilarious
