The former head of Sony Europe thinks that the battle for a secure PSN is far from over. The recent attack on the PlayStation Network gave Sony quite a scare, as well as the consumers that use the network and store their personal details on Sony servers. The former Sony UK boss, who is now Chief Operating Officer at Capcom admits that the all parties suffered from the recent attacks on the network. Sony’s brand was tarnished, developers lost a months worth of revenue on the PlayStation store, and gamers where locked out of online play with the PlayStation 3.
As gamers are starting to return to the network, Reeves notes that there has been a resurgence in purchases for PSN cards. He thinks that gamers are “playing it safe” because at this point noone knows if the hackers will return. Though Reeves is pretty sure that they will.
“People are playing it a bit safe at the moment because the hackers will be back [laughs]. That’s my personal opinion. I mean…they will right? They are going to say: ‘So you think you are secure?'”
This weekend PlayStation hackers looking to gain access to the PlayStation Network found success in another backdoor left unlocked by the company, but by all estimations this loophole was quickly closed.
