Mario & Sonic: London 2012 Officially Announced

London, for the third time, will host the Summer Olympics in 2012. Among its participants is none other than Mario, Sonic, and their friends and rivals, who, for the third time, will go head to head for Olympic supremacy. In other words, SEGA officially announced Mario & Sonic at the 2012 London Olympic Games, which, like its predecessors, will be exclusively for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
Check the game's official website for more information and updates.

PlayStation Network Offline

Since April 21, PlayStation Network is offline for "maintenance," leaving PlayStation users unable to access online features. According to Sony, hackers compromised the network, leaving the millions of users and their accounts prone to having their personal information and credit card information stolen by the hackers. Early in the problem's investigation, the million-strong Internet activist/extremist group and phenomenon Anonymous was thought to be the suspect, but Anonymous denied its involvement. Anonymous, however, had intentions to attack Sony by attacking its websites, and it had done so through distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), which took down the Sony websites temporarily. In addition, the compromise was also thought to be a response to Sony's lawsuit against George Hotz, otherwise known by his username, GeoHot. Sony sued him for hacking the PlayStation 3 system under copyright, contract, and computer usage-related claims, such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Recently, the issue between the two concluded outside in which Hotz, through permanent injunction, may not hack or "jailbreak" any more Sony products. Returning to the PlayStation Network issue, more updates and information regarding the problem will be provided as Sony continues to do its work on re-launching the network and solidifying its security measures to prevent similar compromises in the future.

Project Cafe

Wii's successor, codenamed "Project Cafe," and often named by the media and the video game population as "Wii 2," was officially announced by Nintendo recently. According to Nintendo, the new console will support high definition (HD) and be more powerful, if not, as powerful as Microsoft's XBOX 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3. Details remain scarce and unclear as Nintendo plans to reveal more about the console in this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), which will take place from June 7 to June 9.
