Password leaks happen quite often, people just like to pick on the "big greedy corporation". I don't remember seeing so much crying after all of Gizmodo passwords were leaked.
Not to mention, they didn't "hide" any information from anyone. They weren't even sure anything was stolen up until around Monday. They approached this just as they should have, disabling PSN and figuring out what has happened before scaring everyone.
Ignorant people will be ignorant.
I am surprised they didn't encrypt the data, they should be called out on that. Though, they shouldn't be -singled- out. So many others do it, such as Gizmodo, but people only care when they can sue to get money out of it.
The only ignorance is from you. The CC data was taken, it is a fact I can prove. The CC data was viewed, but since it is binary, and copied, and not a physical entity, the CC data still remained in place. Since none of the stolen CC's have been abused yet to anyone's knowledge, Sony is in the clear for their PR Spin Doctors to release some spin-lies. It can't be proven if I view a website that I copied the data down. I could have just viewed it and left. I could have viewed it and saved all the data. A PR Spin Doctor can then say that it does not appear that I took the website data when I viewed it. They know I viewed it, but that is as much as they can tell.
The CC data was viewed, but since Sony can't know if it was taken or not, they can get away with the PR Spin lies that they are spreading.
Lets prove this fact another way. If Sony was sure the CC data was not copied, they would come out and say so. Instead, since they know it was copied, they give you some BS that "we did not see it being taken, but change your security anyway".
Like I said, you're the only ignorant one here. The CC data was taken, anyone who denies this fact is lying for the sake of trolling.
Sony is done. The PS4 is cancelled. PlayStation is no more. $6 billion USD in debt and now this A-Bomb is dropped on them. They're going to be in so much debt, I don't even know, it's just so funny how much debt they will be in within the next few months. They're so dead. Bye PlayStation, nice knowing you. Not.
