A Bulk PSN Change Password Notification Has Been Deployed
PS4 and PS Vita users are reporting that a bulk email is making the rounds prompting a change of PSN password. There’s been no word from Sony as of yet concerning the nature of the reset. It’s completely possible that this is being done as a precaution, but it seems as though the entire community hasn’t received the notifcation. Reports suggest that users are being asked to change passwords on the PS4 and PS Vita platforms themselves.
So my PS4 won’t sign into the PSN and when I go to the store it wants me to change my password. Is this a pete dodd problem or everyone?

This is either very good news, or possibly very bad news. If only a portion of the PSN community was contacted via email to change their passwords, that could indicate some sort of phishing scam. Being prompted on the device itself means the request is actually coming fom Sony, but to what end?
We’ve reached out to Sony for some clarification on the matter and will update if we receive further info.
