Week in Review: Sony Offline Entertainment


At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. Miss a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week? You've come to the right post.

Things just couldn't be bleaker for Sony Online Entertainment. Still reeling from the massive PSN hacking that has seen 77 million accounts compromised, SOE was this week forced to take its PC MMO services offline (affecting another 24 million accounts) after determining that the original attacks jeopardized the Station, too. Accused of lax security and suffering Congressional inquiries and lawsuits, SOE has scrambled to answer its customers questions and compensate players both in-game and out. Is Anonymous to blame? If so, the hacktivists aren't making any friends among gamers.

Are you twiddling your thumbs, waiting for your favorite SOE MMO to return to service? Why not cure that boredom past the break with a peek at this week's other top MMO stories.

And from our sister site, WoW Insider...
