The PSN outage had very little effect on me as I don't own a PS3. However, I do own a PSP (1000 for the win). Sooner or later I would need to gain access to my account. Today is the day.
I first had to obtain an update for my PSP (version 6.38). I swear there's a new update for this thing every other day. While my battery charges (haven't used it in months), I'm going about getting my PSN account back.
I attempted to sign in and received a message that I have to reset my password. Within minutes, the password reset email is in my inbox. I entered the characters in a captcha and chose my new password. I accepted the new terms of the agreement and I'm in. If only my PSP would take a charge this quickly.
Since I'm late to this party, this was a relatively painless process for me. If you plan on getting back into the swing of things with Sony, it's a necessary step but thankfully easy one.
Still waiting for that battery to charge though...
I received an email a little while ago and have been meaning to get this up. Here are three codes to get in the Gears of War 3 beta. The beta ends May 15th, giving you at least a couple of days to get in on the action.
