    So I was watching a blu ray on my PS4 yesterday. When I finished, I exited back to the regular home screen to find a message that I had been logged off because I was logged in to another PS4. I signed back on and was almost immediately logged off again.

    I quickly logged on to my PSN account on my computer and changed my password and removed my credit card from the account. Then I went to Googlin'.

    I don't know if I was individually hacked or if I was part of that breach that Sony experienced a while ago. Someone went into my account and deactivated my system as the primary on my account and made their PS4 the primary system. Due to Sony's idiotic security protocols, you can only deactivate systems every 6 months so couldn't do anything.

    I guess Sony has had a shitton of these problems to there's a webpage you can go to to request all systems to be removed from your account. So as long as you've changed your password, you can go back in and make your system the primary again.

    So you negroids should log on to your system, go to settings and go to Playstation Network/Account management. Then hit Activate as Your Primary PS4. At the bottom it should say This PS4 is activated as your primary PS4.

    I suggest you change your password to something very strong.

    Unless you are under 17 this really shouldn't be a problem

    Although I make my kids buy shit only with gift cards we get at Kroger

    I don't trust that network at all

    Sounds like a fuck up on your end. I follow video game news daily and never heard about this at all. Sorry and that Sony breach was back in 2011 & 2014 hard to believe its just now effecting people.

    I'd check your other shit to make sure its not a widespread problem on your end, but no worries here and I use my playstation almost daily.

    Sounds like you're a retard. Do a Google search and see how many people have the same problem.

    I've never shared my account with anyone. I've only had the thing since whenever it was that Destiny came out.

    There's a great chance you'll never, ever get hacked now.

    Only news story is from November from last year. Your the retard who got his account hacked no need to attack me.

    Go to ign Go to gamespot Gaming news sites there is nothing. Doing a random google search shows how bright you are. Not shocked you were hacked. Its tends to happen to the stupid. Glad your fucked over now when I was trying to help.
