Watch out for PlayStation Network Abusers

50°
321w ago - The term 'hacker' is perhaps not so accurate, but more and more forums are reporting stories of people whose PSN password suddenly changed and that with their credit card information, stored in the account, games are purchased by someone else.

With the numerous BETAs and codes which allow you to get additional content, there are a lot of people seeking access to these. They are sometimes fooled by others under false pretenses, and only their login and password to enter PSN is needed. Below is an example of someone who is trying to obtain someone's password to enter through the Home BETA.

People sometimes offer to 'swap' PSN games, however, if you have each other's account information you can download each other's games... this is not only illegal, but secondly someone can change your password so you no longer can access the account. Worse yet, others will be able to access your credit card information.

Sony nor their official developers will ever ask your password and login for PSN as in the user conditions it's clearly prohibited, but because it happens often enough this is still a necessary warning.

Even if people know you on your e-mail address connected to your PSN account, make sure you have a password with a mix of numbers and letters, and not something like '1234 'or'...
 

Soldner-X Delayed Until Late November for PlayStation Network

50°
321w ago - Last month Eastasiasoft said their space shooter Söldner-X was on target to become a PlayStation Network download in October... which apparently is no longer the case.

To quote: Since it's the last week in October I thought we would see it on this Thursday's PlayStation Store update. After searching their forums I discovered this was not the case.

Himmelsstürmer, a Forum Moderator there explains as follows, "The game will be pushed back to a late November release. A news update will follow shortly."

So there you have it, no Söldner-X in what's left of this month folks.
 

Speed up your PlayStation Network Downloads with Auto-Installs!

100°
322w ago - Tonight I was downloading some content I had been missing out on the last week due to band rehersals and some light work here and there...

Now normally I would've just background-downloaded all of my stuff and walked away from it until it was done - I'm glad I didn't.

A big complaint with the PSN is the fact when you download something of the store you then have to install it. This means the long process becomes longer...

Well, tonight I found out that if you que up all you want to download and individually download it from the store menu or your drop down download list, without doing a background download, it not only increased my speed from an average of 1MB every 4 seconds to 1MB every 1 second to 2 seconds, but it also pre-installs your content for you. So you don't have to go back out and manually do it from your PlayStation 3 XMB.

Now, I have a fast connection and I often average 1MB per second anyways, but a lot of times it's not a constant 1MB per second... Sometimes it drops down to where I am only getting 1mb every 3 to 4 seconds - With this method it was much faster than just putting them all on the background and letting it do it for me.

It might not be as convenient, but it sure went a lot faster. I got over 1.4GB of downloads in under 7 minutes flat...
 

Global Approval Process in the Works for PlayStation Network

50°
322w ago - Hate the long delays between game releases in America, Europe and Japan? Well, that may be over, according to a report by GameDaily.

A change in the game approval process means developers can submit to just one territory, and gain approval in all.

To quote: "Previously games had to be submitted separately through Sony Europe, Japan, and America. Now, the game idea is sent through a single website for approval."

Sony is hoping this will encourage even more developers to release their games on PlayStation Network.

They'll continue to tout the benefits of the PSN: it's free, doesn't require a publishing partner, and can be distributed around the world simultaneously. Will developers be able to refuse this kind of offer?
