    It was probably the Chinese. Make no mistakes, they still want to conquer all of Asia.

    :sigh: Sony, you need to pull it together.
    You should realize that negative publicity on top of mega network failure on top of log-in exploits is not the way to impress customers :shake head:

    It's kind of funny seeing as it's the company that gave us the Sony rootkit...karma

    Or maybe its just printed on a different kind of paper....

    e.g. bank notes are more important! ;)

    I don't think it's really Sony's fault, it could have been any company being compromised. Sony is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Some of that might be true in fairness - No company is insurmountable to attack, not unless they're offline and cannot be attacked.

    You do have to wonder how secure everything at Sony really is though, or just how much they're now suffering at the abuse of crackers.

    I fear having made such a huge target of themselves in recent times there will be no shortage of those wishing to attack them - it makes you wonder if they can move on from the damage this has caused long term.
  13. They deserve every bit of this and then some.

    Hmm... Should we get the premium security suite, or the best buy plug-and-play version... Let's just save some money and hire that guy on the street standing outside of best buy who may or may not have any qualifications.

  18. *facepalm* Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on you, fool me three times, shame on you... When will Sony learn?
  19. If you ask me this is so suspicious!!! They the only company to be hacked so many times in the last few weeks... It amazes me how they can be breached so easily (Sarcastic Face) cause I'm sure that they as a multi billion dollar company wont have such weak security measures. Just look at the lengths they go to in protecting game piracy issues. They have looked at security, its just a issue like all company's have of flaws being exploited.

    If you ask me there has to be a inside guy or they should take closer look at the rival they have... Don't you think it's funny how you don't hear of attempts of hacking on Xbox or so on hmmmm...

    To be a hater of Sony is to be a hater of technology as they have basically laid the foundations for portable gaming, being that x box and Nintendo have learnt and built there consoles from Sonys previous success and failures... People who hate the Corp Sony just cant afford to probably purchase there items as they are pricey but are way worth the quality... I love tech, be it even a electric tooth brush....
  20. As a die hard xbox fan, this is fun. PS2 users are now losing the 'which system is better debate', in epic fashion. :)
