Sony Online Entertainment Restarts Game Services
San Diego-based Sony Online Entertainment said over the weekend that it has begun restoring its online game services, after the massive hack of the firm's services. Sony said Saturday that it has begun returning "nearly all" of its portfolio of online games, its game forums, and websites. The company also said that it will require its players to reset their passwords after the cyber-attack on the site. Sony reported that it has also increased security measures on the site, after engaging "several" outside security firms to implement security measures on the site. In a bid to regain users, Sony also said it will provide 30 days of additional game time, plus one day for each day its services were down.
