Sony has recently announced through their blog that “some services” of the PSN (PlayStation Network) will be go back online within a week. The company did not specify what these “some services” are, but at least people got something.

Sony also urged some developers to acquire and install the new SDKs on their PlayStation 3 dev kits. The new SDKs will include new security features in light of the recent attacks on the PSN service, which has sent Sony and all its denizens into a state of discord after learning that private information – such as billing addresses, usernames and passwords – have been compromised. Sony has assured though that credit card information was not breached, explaining that the database was encrypted and there have been no evidence that it has been hacked.

"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Meanwhile, they didn’t include any other information about the devices which’ll be supporting Opera, but somehow we have a good guess that these devices are those presented during CES 2011.

C out the video from Opera after the skip.
