Loaded: Sony tries to make amends for PSN

2:14 /

News Corp. is switching video-game review sites, BlackBerry OS 7 is on the way, and Sony is working to make amends for the PlayStation network outage and hack.

-It's Monday, May 2nd. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get Loaded. The PlayStation Network went down almost 2 weeks ago, but Sony said over the weekend that most of the services will be back up and running within the week. The network was hacked between April 17th and 19th and personal information from users were possibly obtained, but Sony says it's working to improve security to prevent this from happening again. In the meantime, Sony says services like online gameplay for both the PS3 and PSP will return this week and users can play downloaded movies from the network. They say within the month, they hope to have all services restored. And to make amends, Sony will offer free identity theft protection service and offer free selected downloads plus 30 days of free PlayStation Plus service. New iMacs are on the way. The new machines will most likely have the new Sandy Bridge Intel chip technology, along with the high-speed Thunderbolt port, but the outside will sport the same look as previous models. It should hit stores tomorrow. News Corp. is getting ready to trade off one video gaming site with another. The company's own IGN.com is prepping to separate from News Corp. and be replaced with UGO.com. IGN was purchased from News Corp. in 2005 for $650 million, which is more than what News Corp. paid to acquire MySpace. And BlackBerry has a new OS coming. BlackBerry OS 7 will debut on the new BlackBerry Bold Touch smartphone due out sometime this summer. The new features that users can expect include voice-activated search, HTML5 video support, and, of course, they say it's easier and faster to use. TIME Magazine is letting subscribers read content on the iPad for free. Starting today, anyone with a subscription to Sports Illustrated, TIME, and Fortune Magazines can download and access this content on Apple's iPad. Before this, current subscribers paid extra for these apps. That's your news for today and before I go, we wanna announce that Loaded is returning to 4 days a week. So, we'll have a show Monday through Thursday, but will be dark on Fridays. Thanks for watching. I'm Mark Licea with CNET TV.
