Users have reported having their PSN accounts hacked

Sony announced on Wednesday that it has received many reports from users who have had their PlayStation Network accounts hacked. The company is urging users to set up two-step verification in order to protect their accounts.

Sony did not indicate that any of its official accounts were hacked.

Last week, the company had asked users who were purchasing a PlayStation Plus subscription to make sure they were not instead purchasing a PlayStation Now subscription by mistake.

The PS5 launched in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea on November 12. The console launched in most of the rest of the world on November 19. The PS5 retails for US$499.99, and the PS5 Digital Edition (which does not include an optical disc drive) retails for US$399.99.
