PSN Hacked Again (yes again)

Something is really wrong with Sony PlayStation as it gets hacked very often. The PSN or PlayStation Network credentials of 10 million users have been hacked and posted on the internet, by a group of hackers.

Although Sony has said that the PSN was not hacked, it is bit hard for me to believe, as have saw the user id and password hashes, with email id posted on the net.(No I am not sharing the link with you)

It is advisable to change the password of your PSN id.

“Max Payne 1” Back In Action

Max Payne Mobile

On 12th of April Rockstar Games released Max Payne for mobile on iOS device. Personally Max Payne was my most loved game since my childhood. So when the game release on iOS I relived my teenage days.
Max Payne on iOS is one of the app that has the largest file size i have ever seen in App Store. its 1.11GB (that’s the reason i am writing this article so late , i started the download on 12th and it finished today 12:25AM)

The game is very very same to the original PC version it has all the same cut scenes and you get the same feeling, but the touch screen controls takes a little time to get used to. And the best thing is you can use the cheats too!! Yes you read it correct, cheats like you use to do on your PC. And yes it has got Bullet Time too.

Specifications

Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad.Requires iOS 4.2 or later.

  • Released: Apr 12, 2012

Government can Spy on Your Beloved Gaming Console too.

 

Well you knew that Government can peep into your computer and your mobile phone and now guess what, they can do the same with your gaming console ! (Yes, you read it correct gaming console like Xbox360, Play Station, etc). The US Navy was awarded with $177,237 sole-source research contract to Obscure Technologies like gaming consoles encryption key. As we all know that todays gaming consoles can not only play games but can connect to Internet , chat and store data on their massive internal storage, the Government thinks that they can dig a gold mine of sensitive information in them.

But i really wonder why will a terrorist play Modern Warfare over real war? and why will any criminal play Grand Theft Auto over real life crime? And if it happens that some real criminal does stores data that can e used by Government to stop crime or put the bad guys in prison, why wont the Government simply ask the vendor to decrepit the data I am sure gaming console manufactures will do hat for them. We have seen in the past how FBI took help from Google to unlock the Android pattern lock of a criminals phone.

PlayStation 3 Cracked again.

One of the world’s most loved console Sony’s PS3 has been hacked by the famous Wii hacker Youness Alaoui. Sony recently released a firmware update 3.5.6 which was hacked in one day of the release. The patch was pushed to stop the modded or hacked PS3 to stop joining PSN network. .As the latest update has been unpacked and signing keys have been published so that other modders can create a custom firmware which can mimic the PSN network making it thing that the user is having the latest firmware and thus allow access to PSN network.

The most interesting part is that this news spread on the same day when Sony won a case over illegal modding of PS3 by George ‘Geohot’ Hotz he has been given restraining order to take part in any PS3 hacking activities.
