In the News #57 – 3/28/2008

Daily News for March 28th, 2008.

  • The Playstation Network has been hacked. Sony made an announcement on their Playstation website that someone had hacked into the Playstation Store and possibly into users’ accounts. Sony was able to take immediate action and it looks as if the hackers did not obtain any credit card information. Read more on the Playstation Website.
  • Xbox Live will be experiencing some downtime on April 1st for scheduled upgrade. It will take 3 hours to complete starting at 2am PST.
  • Is the next Mortal Kombat on the way? Just take a look at Noob.com. The website is registered to Ed Boon (creative director of the Mortal Kombat) and Midway Games. Right now, the site features a countdown timer which ends in a little less than 20 days and promisses “Answers.” Underneath the countdown timer are 4 pictures of animals.
    • One IGN user, tmeadows34, pointed out that the 4 animals are: Rhino, Anteater, Gorilla, Elephant. If you take the letter at the beginning of each animal’s name, it spells out “R.A.G.E.” Could the new Mortal Kombat be using the RAGE engine to build the game? Only time will tell.
