It has been a day of trouble over at the Sony camp. A day after their security breach users are finally getting their emails, warning them of the possibility that credit card info may have been stolen. For the most part, users have been quiet, calmly waiting for more news from Sony. In that time, I have been scourging the internet searching for stories that have made it through the net that is the PSN debacle.
Telltale Games on more platforms? Hulu Plus on 360? Check after the break for that and more Sony news.
For now, I will ignore all posts regarding the general public, as no news has been given by Sony today. However, Sony is issuing new devkits to developers before they put the Playstation Network back online. This will not be noticed by consumers, but it is interesting to note as it is suspected by some that the Sony breach is not as they have announced. All of that is general speculation, and none of it is confirmed. Expect many posts regarding this issue in the coming days.

Joystiq received a tip today of Hulu Plus running on the Xbox 360. The writers at Joystiq (and myself, as well) believe this video to be legit. The application looks like the Netflix app on the dashboard, just converted to contain Hulu Plus content. An ad in the video points to an April 29th, 2011 launch. Truthfully, we are wondering how it took this long.
