Today’s second dose of bad news for Team Sony – This one affects you gamers..
A number of Gadget Helpline blog readers have brought to our attention an error they’re experiencing when trying to get back onto the Playstation Store to grab the bountiful goodies on offer as part of Sony’s attempt to win back favour, after accounts were left unprotected on the Playstation Network – allowing hackers to down the site on April 20th.
The Playstation Store came back online yesterday, with masses of free and discounted content awaiting the millions of loyal customers who have been patient while experiencing the month of gaming hell. Although it’s now been widely reported that PS3, PSP and Playstation Plus account holders are receiving “807” errors when trying to log into the store and Sony have addressed the issues in their blog.
Sony’s Head of European Communications Nick Caplin, regular blogger during the PSN upset, states in this latest article “There are so many of you accessing the store at the moment that due to the excessive load, it is a little slow.” adding ‘We are improving it as I write this, so you will see improvements in speed as the day progresses”.
Yesterday an article on the Sony blog excitedly and confidently revealed the goodies in store as part of the “Welcome Back” package, but as of yet this still hasn’t been delivered, and now hindered by these errors it’s not looking a great comeback for the company.
When it comes to promises from Sony, we’re reluctant – ‘Nuff said.
Also revealed today is yet another intrusion on a Sony network section – This time Sony Pictures website is the subject of hacking. Read Part 1 of Sony’s bad day HERE.
