If you’re a Playstation gamer then you’ll probably know that your PSN password was reset last week by Sony. Apparently this was due to some “irregular activity” that they spotted.

More details have now emerged and it appears that the security scare was actually due to the trading card system in FIFA 14. Apparently because you can purchasing the trading cards from within the game itself, using real money, it has been targeted by hackers… and as a result some PSN users have seen charges that they didn’t authorise being added to their accounts.

We guess that the problem is because people are setting up a password on their consoles, and probably want something short and easy… hence making it easy pickings for a hacker. The lesson is you still need a strong password whatever you’re doing!

Here’s a couple of tweets sent out by people who appear to have been affected by the problem…

Potential PS4 cheats & codes – what could the next generation bring?

November 13, 2013 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

The official launch of the PlayStation 4, Sony’s next-gen gaming console, is now upon us with many reporting that their pre-ordered console has already shipped. When the PS4 is officially released on November 15 a large library of launch titles and future games will accompany it. In the little time remaining, Cheats.co will try to predict the kinds of PlayStation 4 cheats the future will bring.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is already available as a current-gen title, and the PS4 version will be very similar to the one already out (upgraded 1080p visuals aside). This first-person shooter does not have many cheats discovered so far, but it does have new gameplay modes that players can unlock through their actions, as well as hidden files to collect for a Trophy. Trophy strategies and similar cheats will be the most likely things we see for this PS4 title. Another current-gen title making the jump to the eighth generation of consoles is DC Universe Online. This comics-based MMORPG has Trophy guides and hints to help players deal more damage, though its online nature means more cheats could appear as time goes on. FIFA 14 is a third game we can speculate about with a good degree of accuracy. Although it has already appeared on numerous systems, this sports game will launch on the PS4 with a new game engine. Based on the current version, FIFA 14 cheats will likely pertain to Trophies and Trophy strategies.

Minecraft is in the interesting position of being a current-gen game announced for next-gen systems that is not going to be a launch title. Although the PS4 version was supposed to release alongside the console, it has been delayed. Nevertheless, this sandbox game is so popular that it’s easy to predict that its cheats will look a lot like those for the versions already out—unlockables, Trophy guides, and strategies to take advantages of glitches for cool effects like invisibility and item duplication. As a fairly similar experience across the platforms it has appeared on, it should hold few surprises.

However, these next two games won’t be fully understood until the PS4 releases, as they are both exclusive launch titles. Killzone: Shadow Fall has caused much excitement amongst series fans and newcomers alike. As a first-person shooter based on a special forces group known as the Shadow Marshals, any cheat codes for the game will probably unlock new weapons, give the player boosted health or even invincibility, or unlock scenes and areas from the game. Other likely possibilities include bonus costumes and humorous character effects. While Shadow Fall looks at the dark side of things, another one of the PS4’s big launch titles is a family-friendly action game called Knack. As a new IP, there is little to compare Knack to, but its gameplay suggests we could see cheat codes that would unlock Knack’s various abilities or grant him invincibility. There will likely be strategies on how to easily get through each level.

Whether they are interested in Knack, Killzone, or one of the many other PlayStation 4 titles, players who follow speculation about Sony’s next-gen console should get ready for its imminent release and decide if they want to pick one up or pass.

Microsoft’s Gamescom showcase event is over and we’re still bringing you all the details (just check the front page for recent news), but it was revealed that every pre-order for a Xbox One console made in Europe will include a free copy of FIFA 14 when it ships. And if you’ve already made an order, don’t sweat it, the offer will be extended to you too!

No word yet if this kind of offer will be extended to North American or Australian and New Zealand gamers, or what the game might be – Madden NFL 25 anyone?
