Account Playstation in the Chinese social network Weibo called the need to update the security system as the official reason, but the company did not specify what it means in practice. According to Ahmad, the reason could be an easily accessible backdoor, which was told just before the shutdown. He supposedly allowed Chinese gamers to switch to foreign services.
Ahmad specified that in Chinese Playstation store there are only officially approved games by the authorities, and the upcoming The Last of Us: Part II there, for example, they will not even try to release it.
