PlayStation Network, SOE Services Back Online

May 15, 2011 -

By the time you read this the PlayStation Network should be back online in most regions in the United States. After three weeks of being offline, the service slowly started going back online after Sony issued a new firmware update to deal with firming up security and allowing users to change their passwords.

The first phase of the network restoration will include online play, video streaming, friends lists, PlayStation Home, and Qriocity. Unfortunately the PlayStation Store is still offline. The v3.61 is mandatory and is available now.

And on a related note Sony Online Entertainment's various online game services are coming back online this weekend as well. From the SOE Site:

"We are pleased to be back online and deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused by the recent data breach and subsequent outage.

To thank you all for your patience and understanding, we have prepared a Welcome Back Program that includes complimentary identity theft protection, free game time and special in-game items and events.

Reminder: As an added security measure, we require a password reset for your Station Account - we recommend you do this immediately."

Re: PlayStation Network, SOE Services Back Online

And I'm already hearing rumors that hackers intend to bring the PSN back down by the 20th. Why can't they just leave it alone? ; ;

ZippyDSMleepicking up The Feminist Wire , Mary Sue and Feminist frequency , a shame FF had to close down comments, I tend to drop anyhting that dose not allow comments these days but as seeing how much spam and trolling they get I will it slide.04/01/2015 - 4:03pm
ZippyDSMleeOkay now that I can understand, I was focusing on total outcome not just reinforcement.So its about reinforcement of poor feelings/behavior than anything else..now I get it....uhg forest for the trees.....04/01/2015 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenBut again, to be clear, that does not mean consuming violent media will make you violent.04/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenZippy - Not totally sure what you're getting at but it's the same idea that when our fiction is full of stories where violence is the solution to everything, it helps reinforce the idea that violence is the answer in real life.04/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenAlso, just in case anyone wasn't clear on this, Sarkeesian's argument in her latest video is that we "need more women-centric stories of all kinds." That's it.04/01/2015 - 3:44pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen Okay so would that be like violence something that has a loose tie to the real world, or would that be an oversimplification?04/01/2015 - 3:43pm
Andrew EisenThe Mary Sue reports on all kinds of fun, geeky stuff from news to movies, video games, comics, science and more.04/01/2015 - 3:42pm
ZippyDSMleeAnyone know of any fun/comedic feminist blogs that keep up with news?04/01/2015 - 3:42pm
Andrew EisenYes, kind of. Repeatedly hammering home that men are the default and women are the exception can help reinforce that idea in real life. Does that mean playing fantasy games staring male leads is going to make an individual a raging misogynist? No.04/01/2015 - 3:41pm
ZippyDSMleeThe trouble wiht twitter and FB is they give inconstant updates to those you follow and RSS feeds never worked well for me, guess I will put in my news stuff and skim it like the rest when I have time..04/01/2015 - 3:38pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:So a wide use of generic tropes about male leads makes it easier for males to dominate females, and females feel lesser beings in real life?04/01/2015 - 3:36pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, they have an RSS Feed, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. All links are in the side bar of their site: http://www.feministfrequency.com/04/01/2015 - 3:35pm
Andrew EisenZippy - It has an RSS and a presence on Twitter and Facebook.04/01/2015 - 3:33pm

ZippyDSMleeanyone know if feministfrequency has a newsletter or update notification via the blog system they use?04/01/2015 - 3:31pm
Andrew EisenIf you're referring to the ending of Sarkeesian's latest video, no. What she said was the idea that men's experiences are universal is reinforced when the overwhelming majority of archetypal fantasy heroes are male.04/01/2015 - 3:30pm
ZippyDSMleeas it requires a lot of effort to go beyond ones experience. Hell I have like 10 crutches or so LOL, failures aside the more I am learning the more I am confused =0_o=04/01/2015 - 3:27pm
ZippyDSMleeto female….an asshole is still an asshole no matter the tropes used… On the other hand I have noticed most of my stories revolving around male leads or male main character’s. It’s what I know so it’s what I go with, is it a crutch I would guess so 04/01/2015 - 3:27pm
ZippyDSMleeSo most people see male elads are powerful figures and women leads as something only inspiring to females? No wonder I am screwed up I do not see any of that I can sub one for the other on the fly and notice no real change. Like change Duke Nukem to fema04/01/2015 - 3:24pm
