If anon really did hack it, they would've claimed responsibility for it already. They love to let the world know whenever they accomplish something major.. and this is beyond major

Several things:

This was not a "simple breach" as some are putting it. You have zero idea of how long those who are responsible have been attempting to do this. Large companies, just as governments and even Credit Card companies (who should probably be more secure than anyone due to the information of millions of people they have) are succeptable to this kind of breach, as history has shown.

Network. An enterprise network, especially one this large, is impossible to completely secure unless it's not tied to the internet at all. Even then, employees have access to it. There will always be an exploit as it's man-made, it's not perfect.

Where is CorkyFan's link for when Bank of America uploaded network info onto the internet when they were compromised? Trolls be trolls.

Knocking down their servers with a script where the amount of hits were giving them a loop whole, anyone could simply walk right in and do whatever.

Really, they would take responsibility for messing up? Who would do that? Their goal is to "help" those internet users, and now they continue to spread pointless lies to make themselves look good. Fact of the matter is, they hit the wrong people and then state it wasn't them. No, they can't take responsibility for their mess up and hurt the wrong people. :/

Now big names are getting involved. Tough luck.

You do know what hacking is correct?

Anonymous always takes credit and gloats about their success. They'd be all over this if they did it.

Sony surely isn't as fault, unless it was an inside job of course. If they can prove that they had a strong secure system (they obviously did if PSN hasn't been compromised until just now) they are scott-free. When a bank is robbed, you don't blame the bank for allowing it to happen. You don't blame the owner of the home you rent for a burglar breaking past its locks and getting in. I saw PSN's demise coming. Sony will drop all support of PS3 and move on to their next console. A new PSN infrastructure probably isn't worth the effort.

Do you know what you're talking about, or did you get this little conception from some 90's hacker movie where "hacking" could be defined by mashing random keys while giving a zombie like stare to a screen scrolling binary, like some kind of half baked retard?

There isn't always a way. The fact is that alot of companies cheap out on this because there always seems to be better ways to spend their money, and it looks like Sony was one of them.
When you're in a neighborhood where everyone hates you, are you going to lock your front door and call it good? I mean, who really breaks through windows or goes through back doors these days anyway?

It's Sony's fault, and no, it's not as simple as "there's always a way to hack in."
There are only as many ways as they've allowed.

I doubt there's anything sony related more important than compromised privacy data of possibly millions of it's customers.

There should be some serious lawsuits brought against them for this, if possible..
