How to set up a PS5 passkey to protect your PSN account
The Playstation 5 system standing upright.

A password can do a mostly fine job of keeping your PlayStation Network (PSN) account secure, but it comes with the annoyance of having to type it in relatively frequently, and it suffers from needing to set up sometimes cumbersome 2-factor authentication to further reduce the chances of someone else logging in with your information.

Sony has finally introduced a passkey system that not only makes logging in much breezier, but offers significantly better security, as a passkey is generated only once and can't be reused. If you'd like to take the leap into a safer login method for your PSN account, here's how to set up a passkey on your PS5.

So, you’ve unlocked a new ability in a Metroidvania. You know that it could help you get to a previously inaccessible area, but you don’t quite remember exactly where that area was on the game’s expansive map. It’s a common feeling when playing the genre and an issue that games have been trying to solve for years. That frustration is what inspired the creation of the Memory Shards system in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which provided a salve to this problem by enabling players to pin screenshots of certain obstacles on their map.

At any time while walking around Mount Qaf, players can press down on the D-pad to leave behind a Memory Shard that pins a screenshot to the map. Later, after gaining a new ability or just increasing or mastering a platforming skill, Memory Shards quickly remind players where they can use the skill they just learned. There is a finite number of Memory Shards that players can pin, but more can be found via exploration. It’s the kind of engaging Ouroboros-style game design that provides a sturdy backbone to an engrossing Metroidvania.
