Hello Kitty contact lensesOut of all things Hello Kitty, these are “wow”, just “wow”.

Japanese PSN Still Down

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Sony’s troubles still continue. The Japanese government is giving Sony a hard time over the PSN outage still, two months after. They still have not allowed Sony to bring PSN back online until they have certain assurances. These are assurances that the Japanese government has been requesting since May and Sony isn’t giving them a time frame for their implementation.

They simply want preventative measures and Sony isn’t cooperating or communicating. Sony needs to be bending over backwards to win people over once again, so this is pretty stupid on their part.

Nintendo sells millionth 3DS unit in Japan

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2011

A million in Japanese sales is pretty awesome, but even Satoru Iwata admits that the 3DS isn’t doing quite as well as they had hoped. It took a little while but Nintendo’s 3DS handheld hit the million mark after 13 weeks, which is a long time compared to the original dual-screen handheld, which accomplished this in four.

In comparison, the PSP sold its first million in about seven weeks. The 3DS could still hit the top spot, but remember, the PlayStation Vita is coming. They should be scared.

Japan won’t let Sony turn PSN back on until they are sure it’s safe

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2011

As Sony is busy getting PSN back in place in America, they still have all kinds of other problems thanks to the outage. Their latest problem comes from Japan. Apparently the Japanese government refuses to allow Sony to reactivate its network until they are satisfied it is safe.

Japan has two issues. The first is that the company’s promised counter-hacking measures, which were announced on May 1st, have not yet been fully enacted. The second is that Japan wants to see even more preventive measures taken to ensure that users’ credit card numbers and other private data will be safe.
