Video Game Championship Series featuring the blockbuster new titles. Pokémon
Trainers will descend on Pokémon Video Game Championship Series’ locations

mind—securing a place to at the 2011 Pokémon World Championships August
12th–14thin San Diego, California.

The 2011 Pokémon Video
Game National Championships kicks off in Europe on June 4 in Birmingham, UK
before heading to Italy for the first time ever, Spain, France and finally
Germany. The top eight finalists in each division from each of the five European
locations will earn guaranteed competitor slots at the 2011 Pokémon World
Championships. In addition to invitations to the World Championships in San
Diego, top finishers in Europe and in the U.S. will receive travel allowances,
special medals and Pokémon prizes.

The 2011 Pokémon Video Game
Championship Series kicks off in the U.S. on May 14th in Seattle,
Washington, before making five more stops in major cities across the country. At
each location, the top 16 players from each division will earn invitations to
compete at the 2011 Pokémon U.S. National
Championships July 8th-10th in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Players at the National Championships will battle to secure a top eight finish
over the weekend, and in return, receive a guaranteed competitor slot at the
2011 Pokémon World Championships.

“We’re looking forward to a fun,
competitive Pokémon Video Game Championships Series this year,” said J.C. Smith,
director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “The
excitement generated from the recent launch of the Pokémon Black Version
and Pokémon White Version video games will make for a memorable and
intriguing tournament season.”

For Europe, 2011 brings
an increase in the overall number of competitor slots, along with a new age
division and revised age brackets. The divisions now separate into three age categories: Junior (players born in 2000 or
later), Senior (players born in 1996, 1997, 1998, or 1999), and Masters (players
born in 1995 or earlier). Competitor slots have been increased this year
to 256 for the Junior division, 256 for the Senior division, and 512 for the
Masters division. All are based on a first come, first served basis. Players competing in Europe will need to play the European

Playstation Network to return May 4th

Bringing relief and joy to over 70 million Sony gamers is the news that the Playstation Network will return with possible limited functionality on May 4th, 2011.

Following the outage that has seen PSN down and out for almost two full weeks we can now confirm that the Playstation Network will make its grand re-opening on May 4th, 2011 to the relief of many a put out player who has been missing their daily dose of online action.

In what has been an almost unprecedented period of online blackout for the Sony Playstation Network GamesMediaPro can confirm that the service will resume, albeit with a possible limited format for the first few day’s of its resurrection, on May 4th. Hackers had succeeded in gaining access to the once closed system thanks to the ‘jailbreaking’ of the network by George ‘Geohot’ Hotz earlier this year when the lauded hacker turned his attention to the games console following his defeat of Apple’s iPhone early in 2008.

Paving the way for other consortium’s of cyber terrorists such as FAILoverfl0w and the self-proclaimed ‘voices of freedom’ ANONymous, the system has had to endure ongoing assaults from pirates and thieves as they have attempted to copy everything from software to games and also the online identities and credit card details of a possible 70+ million users of Sony’s free to play service.

The announcement that even a limited service, that may see gamers back to playing their favourite games in less than a week, will no doubt bring cheer to a multitude of people, but where does it leave Sony with regard to future attacks and protests that have been promised by Geohot and ANONymous? As we reported yesterday there have been several arrests made regarding the downing of the online service, but until we see a genuine case put through the courts where the instigators and purveyors of these devastating attacks are put to rights from a legal standpoint, and have a maximum penalty handed down to them, we fear that the more attacks will be a result of the weak legislation and punishment of these hackers.

5 ANONymous arrests in UK over Sony hack

With the fiasco surrounding the hacking of the Playstation Network entering into its second week of outages for Sony gamers worldwide UK police arrest five ANONymous members

Following the onset of the cyber terrorists ‘Operation Payback’ UK police have swooped to make five arrests of the so-called ‘hackers group’ ANONymous    

Reports are coming in of several arrests made here in the UK, and also of two more in the United States, of suspected members of the internet hacking collective known as ‘ANONymous’.  Five of the faceless cyber terrorists, that have recently turned their finger tapping tools of torment against global corporate against Sony and their online gaming community, are believed to be held in connection with the current outage of the Playstation Network and the theft of over 70 Million of its users identities, including credit card details and personal information.

Sony has yet to make a statement regarding the arrests, and how they wish to proceed against the hackers in question from a legal standpoint, but if the letter of the law were to be applied and upheld in the strictest sense of the word then the digital thieves could well be facing up to 10 years imprisonment for their part in what has to be the largest breach of online security systems since Gary McKinnon smashed the US Department fo Defence computer’s in 2001-2002.

With online communities right across the internet having some sense of kinmanship with the Japanese giant Sony it would seem that the only thing ANONynmous have managed to succeed in doing with this latest stunt is to alienate their freedom of information cause in th eyes of the very gamers that they claimed to represent.
