Paris attackers allegedly communicated through PS4 messaging

The terrorists responsible for the horrific attack in Paris on Nov. 13 may have been using the PlayStation 4 system as a way to communicate because it’s “more secure than Whatsapp” reports suggest.

Jan Jambon, the interior minister of Belgium, says that messages between gamers from gaming consoles are almost impossible to monitor, making them ideal for those wanting to plan for their horrific attacks.

Sony’s response to the allegations were this, – “PlayStation 4 allows for communication amongst friends and fellow gamers and, in common with all modern connected devices, this has the potential to be abused. However, we take our responsibilities to protect our users extremely seriously and we urge our users and partners to report activities that may be offensive, suspicious or illegal. When we identify or are notified of such conduct, we are committed to taking appropriate actions in conjunction with the appropriate authorities and will continue to do so.”

It’s unfortunate that Sony have had to take such a bad wrap for these people’s disgusting behaviour, but I assume that they are working on a remedy to the situation.
