Playstation network.

Sony on Saturday said it has started to gradually bring back its online PlayStation Network, beginning with California and some states in the Northeast.
Sony pulled the plug on its online game and entertainment network, which services tens of millions of PlayStation 3 users, when the company last month discovered that its data centers had been infiltrated and its customers' personal information most likely stolen.
Lawmakers, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), made a fuss about the weeklong delay between the time Sony shut down its service and when it disclosed to its users that their information had been compromised.
The rebuke from policymakers prompted public apologies from senior Sony executives, including Chief Executive Howard Stringer and his heir apparent, Kazuo Hirai.
Sony has said it is working with the FBI to track down the hacker who illegally accessed its computers. A report by Bloomberg alleged that the infiltrator had rented Amazon.com's servers to launch the attack.


I honestly think this is all shit that should have never happened. it only did is because of Sony's bone-idleness.
Whats your oppinion fellow bloggers?

  2. I agree. Sony is stupid for letting this happen, and I wouldn't be surprised if the popularity of the Playstation network suffers because of it.

  10. I like that Sony is re-imbursing their customers with freebies, LBP on PSP, etc. etc. However, after the hacking. I'm not quite positive on the whole Sony issue, once everything is in the clear, i'll come back. =P

  12. I'm not a huge console fan, but I think the entire thing was mishandled by Sony. Its a service that has credit-card info, so Sony should really have more focus on their security.
