Sony on Recent PS3 Hacks, PSN Security Updates Incoming

800°
191w ago - Today Sony has finally spoken out against the recent PS3 Hacks stating they plan to fix the security breaches through a series of PlayStation Network updates including fraudulently unlocked PS3 Trophies.

To quote: This week we've got a relatively small update for our first week back but with plenty to keep you interested.

Also of note, Legends of War: Patton's Campaign, the very well received strategy PSP title released in the last part of 2010 has been permanently reduced by 33% - I urge you all to check out the reviews online and give it a try.

2K get in on the digital BD action with Borderlands hitting the Store this week and Ubisoft bring us the much anticipated Assassin's Creed: Ascendance.

More Trinity Universe DLC and absolutely tons of Rock Band tracks (including a substantial free track pack) round off our add-ons.

If anyone is still pondering whether to grab Kung-Fu LIVE, Virtual Air Guitar have answered the call and supplied you with a demo to see if you've got what it takes to become a Kung-Fu master.

The PSP NEOGEO Station gets a few more of the missing titles, including the brilliant Samurai Shodown, we've got two new minis and there's...
