Sony asks users to reset passwords

A number of PlayStation Network users have had their passwords reset today as a security measure by Sony. The company informed affected users through e-mail, with multiple GamesIndustry International staff among those receiving such communications. Sony has a history of network security issues, most notably the 2011 hacks of the PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment sites that saw hackers access the personal data of more than 100 million customers. The company put the price tag for that lapse at roughly $170 million.
