Sony hit by another cyberattack

Hackers take aim at the PlayStation Network, and a special edition PS4 goes for $20K on eBay. Meanwhile, we say goodbye to the father of the game console.

Sony can't seem to catch a break. The company was hit by hackers once again, this time by a group that targeted the PlayStation Network. The hub for games and movies was down for about two hours on Monday.

Meanwhile, limited edition gray PlayStation 4 units have been selling for as much as $20,000 on eBay. We have one man to thank for today's video game mania: Ralph Baer, who invented the first video game console. He died Saturday at age 92.
