Sony resets some PSN passwords in North America due to irregular activity

Security concerns rear their ugly head as the PS4 prepares to launch in Europe

Sony has announced that they have taken the precaution of resetting some PSN passwords in North America.

They have taken the measure after noticing irregular activity on the network. They took the same action last week in Europe for similar reasons.

Sony resets some PSN passwords in North America due to irregular activity

Sony said on their US forums:

"If you are getting an error that your PSN account password is incorrect, you may need to reset it. We routinely monitor for irregular activity, and if such activity is detected, we may sometimes reset passwords of affected SEN accounts to protect consumers and their account information."

“Please visit this page for details on how to reset your password: Change and Reset Password. Note that if you have access to the email address and Date of Birth associated with the account, you will be able to reset it yourself. If you are missing one or both of those, then you will need to contact us for further assistance."

Sony has been hyper-sensitive over security on PSN after they were forced to take down PSN world wide in April of 2011 due to a large scale attack by hackers.
