Sony Online and PSN Restart Blocked by Japanese Government

sonyonlinemay2Notice something odd about the Playstation Network’s recent resurrection? North America and Europe came online first. Japan gets everything Sony first! What’s up?

According to Nikkei (Japan’s version of Dow Jones), Sony has refused to prove that they have met the security standards laid out by the Japanese government:

"He listed two areas where it requires further explanation before approval will be given following the incidents regarding its PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment videogame services.

"The first is preventative measures. As of May 13, Sony was incomplete in exercising measures that they said they will do on the May 1 press conference," he said, adding that he could not provide details on the outstanding issues for security reasons.”

Yep! Sony says they are now too secure to prove how secure they are… To the government… About your credit card number. Charming.
