Sony is offering a compensation to PlayStation Network users after the large DDoS attack during 2014’s Christmas. PlayStation Plus membership is extended by five days and offers all users a one time 10% discount code for the PlayStation Store. The discount can be applied to the full contents of a cart.

Since access to PlayStation Network was impacted during the holidays, we wanted to show our appreciation for your patience by offering all PlayStation Plus members that had an active membership or free trial on December 25th a membership extension of five days. The extension will be automatically applied, so no action is necessary to receive the extension.

Launch date of the 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition in Europe and select PAL territories. It offers twice the storage of the existing PS4. It received type number CUH-1115B.

We also learn that a new revision with type number CUH-1200 is upcoming. According to a Japanese blogger who has disassembled the new revision the consoles internal hardware has undergone several modifications, but it looks the same on the outside. Most striking is that the 16x 512MB ram modules have been replaced by 8 modules of 1GB. This should reduce the energy consumption. The hard drive with a speed of 5400rpm remains unchanged.

Sony gave developers access to the seventh core of the PlayStation 4 CPU. Previously, it was reserved for the Orbis OS together with the eighth core. This news was not announced officially, but it appeared in patch notes for an FMOD update. That is middleware that takes care of the audio in the SDK. It reads “Added FMOD_THREAD_CORE6 to allow access to the newly unlocked 7th core” leaving little room for interpretation. (Source)

It was a short presentation where they showcase the hack and ran an emulated Pokémon game within the Linux distribution. At this point it seems the hack entry point runs through a Webkit and Kernel Exploit present in firmware 1.76. They hint at critical bugs in the southbridge of the GPU but do not provide details.
