Sony probably will be ditching the DualShock controller for the PS4

What with all the money that Sony has spent defending its use of the DualShock controller technology, you’d think they’d want to hang onto it as long as possible. But all things must end, and with a move to focus more on motion control and touchscreen control, it is possible that the rumor is true that there will be no more DualShock controller once the Playstation 4 comes out in favor of something that uses touch technology and a screen, similar to the PS Vita.

Did PlayStation Network hackers plan a supercomputer botnet?

When the Playstation Network was hacked last week, and the reason it’s still down is that the breech didn’t come from just a couple of hacker wannabe script monkeys— it was a highly coordinated, highly advanced attack on the entire PSN network system that’s forcing Sony to rebuild its network to even higher security standards.
