Being as proactive as they can be -- after the massive downtime of the PlayStation Network and the subsequent media and consumer backlash at their initial handling of the outage -- Sony Computer Entertainment is hoping to get brand-new Software Development Kits (SDKs) out to developers with renewed security efforts in place to ensure nothing like this happens again, according to sources working closely with Gamasutra
From April 20 the PlayStation Network service has been down, with growing concerns of leaked personal information, including credit card details, for millions of users. On April 26 an official statement
from Sony said the service would be down no longer than a week.
There are no expanded details on just what new security measures Sony would like in place on PS3 devkits in the hands of developers, but shipping out that many new SDKs to be installed before the service is due to go back online is no mean feat.
