Although it has been rumored that the PlayStation Blog was taken offline by hackers, Reuters has reported that this is actually not the case. The blog has been given regular updates by Sony’s Senior Director of Communications and Social Media Patrick Seybold, this contradicts a story earlier published by Bloomberg media that claimed that the blog had been compromised by hackers.
Media reports claiming that the US PlayStation.com site and blog were partially disrupted because of hackers are false,” said Sony rep Dan Race. “We installed a new security measure that has temporarily made the sites inaccessible to select regions outside of the US.”
This is just another case of the professional media jumping on a story and riding the wave. Nothing to see here folks, well except for yet another case of professional journalists acting entirely nonprofessional, that’s all.
