Let's Talk About: Playstation Network

If you haven't heard some serious news as of late is the breach of security on Sony's Playstation Network



This is some pretty serious news and raises a few questions. How was this allowed to happen? Can players have prevented it? Should players be expected to? What's Sony's liability in this?



Honestly this is a serious breach of trust to its consumers from a  business standpoint. I personally don't own a PS3 because the only decent games from what I've seen are Disgaea 3 and Little Big Planet but if my Steam account were somehow hacked I'd be disappointed but to not be informed that it may be hacked by Valve would be a serious breach of my trust as a consumer and I'd be hesitant to purchase more Steam games.

But if you own a PS3 you have my sincerest condolences not only because of the hack but because you wasted your money on a terrible console.

  5. This is definitely serious, having leaked millions of sensitive information to the hacker i wonder if people will continue support Sony.

    Oh at least they promised us free stuff.

  7. I agree with B Jezzy. I used to be a console fan, but after setting up an actual gaming pc its hard to even look at a console anymore. Good blog though, followed.

  10. "wasted your money on a terrible console" ouch haha i wouldnt go so far as to say that! ps3 is a breakthrough gaming platform of its time, as was the xbox 360 and any new console to hit the market in the future! good blog though, followed!

  12. Disgaea 3!!!! Hell yes, thats one of my favourite games! I actually started playing it again recently, true story. I can't wait for Disgaea 4 coming later this year. PSN can eat a dick anyway. I only go online with my 360.
