It’s a problem as old as time: we like to describe it as the Thank You for Your Purchase Heart Attack. We’ve all experienced it on at least one occassion in our lives: we’ve hurriedly downloaded the latest PS Plus games, checked our inbox an hour later, and felt the blood rush from our faces. “Thank You for Your Purchase.” We’ve been hacked!
Of course, none of us had been hacked, it was just a receipt from Sony telling us we’d successfully claimed our free games. But that message has been the bane of PlayStation players for over a decade now – and it sounds like it’s finally been solved. Reddit was the first to notice the alteration, before it was picked up by PlayStation Lifestyle and shared elsewhere.
