Those are some pretty decent titles, actually.

I'm surprised, I figured they'd just throw us some random DLC that nobody would really want or need. These are all titles I don't have, and would like to own.

Neat.
The color differs from my own but.. Would you express them in your own hues, and paint.. for me?

Well, I tried to sign on and it forces you to change your password via a PC. I click on the link and the website it takes you to tells you that the server is down for maintenance.

The only way to change your password is via the ps3. They did have the option to change via the website but they found out that the information that was taken could be used to reset the password because so many people use the same password for everything on the web.

I'll check again, but when I tried to sign-on it stated that I needed to change my password. The prompt stated that an e-mail has been sent to me and to click on the link there and update the password via a PC.

Yup. I don't see anywhere to change my password on the PS3. It tells me to check my e-mail and change it from a PC.

It told me my password was expired, asked me to enter a new one, and when I finished and hit confirm, it gave me a gibberish error and would not let me continue.

It you highlight the password field and hit X it should let you edit.

I was able to change my password a few days ago after I updated the console.

Here's the cnet article on the password exploit.

It took 4 tries, but I was finally able to change my password, re-accept the TOS, and log in...except the server is offline, so you cannot do anything.

What did you do to change your password? Logon four times with the old one and then it prompted on the PS3 to change it?

Yeah, the article says they took down the password reset page due to a URL exploit and while it has been fixed, the page is still down.

Guess I'm SOL for now.

No. First time I tried to log on, it told me my password had expired, and to choose a new one. After entering the new one, it gave me an error. I hit back, and entered it again, and got an error. Tried that 4 times, and on the 4th time, it accepted the new password, and took me to the TOS screen. After I accepted the TOS, it took me BACK to the login screen again. Typed in my new password, told it to save it, and it logged me on.

When I tried to do anything, however, it said the server was down. So I am watching ESPN3 via my playon server with it now.

Gotcha. For me it just stated that I needed to change my password (nothing about it being expired) and that a link was sent to my e-mail address. Guess I'll hafta wait till the password reset page comes back up.

Personally, I'm waiting until all this mess blows over before I sign onto my PSN again.

Anonymous has been threatening another attack, and while 90% of the crap they talk I take with a grain of salt, there are a few among them who can back up those claims with action. So I think I'll just keep my happy bum off the PSN until this is all resolved. No matter how secure the system, there will always be vulnerabilities if it's connected to the internet.
