    Nice reference to an old tv show. Sony is losing their reputation by the day now.... oh wait, didn't they already lose the trust of their customers.
  6. Massive failure by Sony to protect it's customers data. These hackers are not just doing it for fun anymore, they're doing it to try to hurt Sony's reputation and wallet. It's a war now!

  9. Sony is still around? I thought that company was long gone. Hmm, learn something new everyday.

  16. Faster they go bankrupt, the better for all of us.
  17. This is "NOT" a second attack...it's the same attack they are speaking of which is why SONY disabled PSN... The attack was aimed @ Sony Online Entertainment Network...which includes PSN.
    Again....!! Please don not mislead the gullible masses....! THIS IS NOT A SECOND ATTACK .

    P.S: Guest above...You're an imbecile!!

    Explain how this is better for all of us,if you don't like their stuff then nothing is still forcing you to buy it.
  19. "Massive failure by Sony to protect it's customers data. These hackers are not just doing it for fun anymore, they're doing it to try to hurt Sony's reputation and wallet. It's a war now!"
    War against who? Hackers? That's like a war against crime. You're never going to wipe either out.

    "Explain how this is better for all of us,if you don't like their stuff then nothing is still forcing you to buy it."
    I can think of one thing that is going to be better. Securing credit card info for customers.

    Oh darn it . . . . . Sony neds too work on there security system
  23. Its better for all of us for the reason that a company promised and is supposed to protect that information. If that company can not do that then they should not be around to give false hope. Sony brought it to themselves.

    I was long under that impression. Going back to the rootkits found in the BMG music copy protection that they unleashed on consumers, their fake Blog (alliwantforxmasisapsp.com) surrounding the PSP, the whole Blu-Ray DRM mess that it is, to the famous Sony exploding batteries; and now your information with them cannot be kept safe? It seems they stay in the spotlight for not doing it right these days. I just can't figure out why/how people can continue to throw money at them.
