Sony releases a mandatory firmware update
Sony released a mandatory firmware update today. This is just the "first phase" of relaunching the PSN. The update begin in the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East, with a full restoration of all online services expected by the end of May, as originally planned by Sony. As a precaution the user will need to change their password upon logging in. Sony has said it will provide its customers with free identity-theft services for a year, including a $1 million insurance policy.
