Sony on new problems faced with resetting PSN passwords

By Chris Cook - May 16, 2011

As you are probably aware by now, the PlayStation Network finally got back up and running again yesterday, well across most of the globe at least. However we did bring you news of at least one country that won’t be online just yet and that is Japan.

The restoration of the PSN hasn’t been plain sailing. It seems that Sony’s policy to reset all users’ passwords has caused a slight problem for them. The company has found that they are unable to cope with the sheer amount of password reset requests coming in simultaneously.

Some users may have been experiencing problems and Sony says this is the reason why. The news comes from PS Blog, where Nick Caplin, Sony Head of Communications wrote to those who have had problems.

He confirmed that the issue they were having was from the overload of password change request and he also said the company are currently working to resolve the issue and to remain patient. Check out the PS Blog yourself by clicking the link above.
