Hackers email Sony employees, say families are ‘in danger’

Now, it seems the hackers are making threatening remarks to Sony employees via email.

Street Fighter 5 trailer taps PS4/PC release

This morning a trailer was leaked for Street Fighter 5. This trailer was almost certainly set to be released in full this weekend, during the PlayStation Experience event series in Las Vegas, Nevada. Instead, we're seeing the bits and pieces of this next-generation release appear here, in super-short mode. Capcom continues to helm, and the game appears to mix some futuristic backing effects with previous-yen fighting animatics. This is also very likely an early look at the game, with final graphics not yet shown.

Hacked Sony data included personal info of stars, employees

It would have probably been just a wee bit of OK if the recent hacking incident at Sony only involved unreleased movies, secret trailers, or even overpriced budgets. But alas, the invasion is far more widespread and far more personal. The latest word is that included in the hacked data, which is now freely floating on the Internet, includes information on more than 47,000 current and former employees, as well as Hollywood stars. And that data unfortunately include Social Security Numbers and addresses.

Sony Android TVs to come in February 2015

Android TV, the successor of the somewhat stillborn Google TV, is barely a few months in the market, and yet some true believers are already lining up to take the platform under their wings. One of those is Sony, who courageously announced (or Google announced for them) that its entire HD and 4K Smart TV lineup next year will have Android TV in tow.

Sony Pictures tipped to name North Korea as cyberattack source

Sony Pictures tipped to name North Korea as cyberattack source

The cyberattack against Sony Pictures has been ongoing since it first appeared last week, effectively bringing the studio to a halt by taking over its corporate network and, later on, leaking data following threats of such. Though Sony has been relatively quiet on the matter, the FBI recently released a warning about a malicious software attack in the United States, something believed to be a reference to the Sony breach. In that FBI report -- obtained by Reuters -- it was said some of the software used by the hackers had been compiled in Korean.

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition goes original PlayStation grey

It's the PlayStation's 20th anniversary, and what better way for Sony to celebrate than a limited-edition PS4 finished in the "Original Grey" of the very first console. Going up for sale in very limited numbers - just 12,300 worldwide, a nod to the original PlayStation's launch date - the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition has a matching grey controller and camera; Sony has been so completist in its color treatment that all the cables and other accessories in the box match, too.
