Sony Confirms Another Online Security Breach, Releases New PSP and PS3 Packs


Sony has suffered another online security breach, this time for 2,000 customers of its Sony Ericsson joint venture in Canada, the latest in a series of hacker attacks against the electronics and entertainment company.

Sony said Wednesday that names, e-mail and encrypted passwords may have been stolen from the Sony Ericsson Canada website, but no credit card information was taken.

More than 100 million online accounts are affected in a suspected hacking of Sony's PlayStation Network gaming service and other online services that began last month.

On Tuesday, Sony said it found a security breach affecting 8,500 user accounts in a music entertainment website in Greece, involving names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses.

In the meantime, Sony is releasing a new PSP "Limited Edition Entertainment Pack" as well as the "Limited Edition PS3 Call of Duty: Black Ops" bundle, in an effort to attract more gamers to join the PlayStation family.

On May 31, the company will release the Limited Edition PlayStation 3 Call of Duty: Black Ops Bundle. Buyers will get a 160 GB PS3 system and a copy of Activision Publishing Inc. and Treyarch?s "Call of Duty: Black Ops," and also be treated to the First Strike Content Pack ? for free. This DLC features five globe-spanning multiplayer maps, one of which is a new Zombie experience.

The Limited Edition PlayStation 3 Call of Duty: Black Ops Bundle will be available at retailers for $299.99.



For Father?s Day, Sony is also introducing the newest Limited Edition PSP Entertainment Pack. This high value PSP bundle includes a "piano black" PSP-3000 system, 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo and two of the company's biggest portable titles ? MLB 11 The Show and Gran Turismo.

The new Limited Edition PSP Entertainment Pack will be available this June at retailers for $159.99 (MSRP).
