Sony Online reacts to PSN identity theft

Treats for PS3 DC Universe, Free Realms.

Fans of Sony Online Entertainment games can breathe a sigh of relief - the great PlayStation Network identity theft hasn't affected them.

"We wanted to update you on the status of our examination of the SOE system intrusion we announced last week," SOE director of community relations Linda Carlson wrote on the DC Universe forum.

"We have been conducting a thorough investigation and, to the best of our knowledge, no customer personal information got out to any unauthorized person or persons. We are continuing that investigation and monitoring the situation carefully; should the situation change, we will of course promptly notify you."

Accounts may not have been jeopardised, but DC Universe Online and Free Realms have been unplayable on PS3 since PlayStation Network went down.

Carlson, hours later, added:

"We apologise for any inconvenience players may have experienced as a result of the recent service interruption. As a global leader in online gaming, SOE is committed to delivering stable and entertaining games for players of all ages.

"To thank players for their patience, and we will be hosting special events this weekend across our game portfolio, including a Double Station Cash day on Saturday, April 30th.

"We are also working on a 'make good' plan for players of the PS3 versions of DC Universe Online and Free Realms."

Details on that "make good plan", she added, will be available "soon".
