Halo 4 … Holiday 2012



Bungie may have divorced itself from the Microsoft family, but there’s no chance in hell that Microsoft would let its biggest gaming property just fizzle out. No, the reins have been given to 343 Industries, a games studio owned by Microsoft, and that means that there will be a Halo 4 hitting the Xbox 360 during the holiday season of 2012.

Sony PlayStation Store could return next week

As I am sure you all know that as of today the PlayStation Store is still offline. Latest news from Metro.co.uk has this to say…

Sony confirmed on their PlayStation forums that they would be doing maintenance work on the PlayStation Network between 7pm UK time on May 31 and 1am the next morning.

The maintenance will prevent anybody logging into the system during those hours – but players who are already signed in will be able to continue playing unaffected (well, that’s the plan, anyway.)

The maintenance suggests that Sony are planning to use the downtime to restore the PlayStation Store – something that seems likely, given that Sony had given May 31 as the only confirmed date by which they pledged to have fully restored their online services. Sony also said earlier this week that they hoped to have the Store back up and running by the end of the month.

In other news, Sony boss Howard Stringer has admitted that he didn’t know the PlayStation Network was also successfully hacked into in 2008 – but denied that Sony had been complacent in its approach to online security. He managed to make this claim at the same time as saying that Sony didn’t think there was much chance anybody would try to hack into the network.

‘We have a network that gave people services free. It didn’t seem like the likeliest place for an attack,’ he said.
