PlayStation 4 has been launched nearly worldwide with more launches coming to the countries as the days progress. Seeing a very successful launch, both financially and commercially, PlayStation 4 has been hailed as the most powerful next-gen console, both in terms of demand and performance.
But everything has its flaws. Sony’s PSN service was under heavy fire and scrutiny when the network was compromised by hackers and it was classified as “external intrusion” when hackers got hold of all the credit card numbers and data from the network. This resulted in bad press for Sony as it tried hard to contain the breach and fix the issue as soon as possible as well as offering protection to the customers whose credit cards may have been compromised.

Sony promised that its PSN service will only get better and more secured following the release of the PlayStation 4. Online multiplayer gaming is now behind a paywall, you need a PS+ subscription to play online multiplayer now and Sony stated that this decision will lead them to invest in more security and better performance. PSN service has been going under constant maintenance ever since the launch of the PlayStation 4. We hope that no loopholes or security flaws have been found by the hackers to compromise the network once again.
Till then we advise our readers to keep a sharp eye out on any activity that looks suspicious and to take precautions when using their credit card on PSN and linking to their account.
