The appalling loss of life following this weekend's terrorist attacks in France have led many to question how such an attack can be co-ordinated in a time of unparalleled access to communications by security organisations and authorities across the world. According to news reports, the PlayStation Network might have played a role in allowing the ISIS followers to discuss their plans.
Authorities have reportedly taken PS4 consoles away as evidence in investigations to the weekend's attacks, which took the lives of 129 people. With over 20 million units sold worldwide, the system is apparently lacking in security monitoring by both Sony Computer Entertainment and authorities. With the precedent set by the Edward Snowden revelations which showed that security organisations such as the NSA and CIA embedded themselves into MMORPG's such as World of Warcraft to breakup virtual terrorist meetings in the past, it looks like the XBLA and Sony messaging systems are about to get a huge crack down in future.
