So holding a corporation accountable when they break the law or do something insanely stupid is BS? Yes kpriess, lets not hold BP Oil accountable when they destroy millions of animals and ecosystems just to make a few extra dollars. There are privacy laws in many countries, including Canada and a lot in Europe, where companies must keep private information secure and if it is found that a corporation did not take proper steps to keep that info secure, they pay the price. It is illegal to do what Sony did in Canada, and they are going to burn badly for it. Allowing all PS3's on Earth to be easily modified so they could access the network all 75 million unencrypted accounts and credit cards sat on is illegal.

Bye Sony, don't let the door hit you in the bum on the way out.

They chose to work for Sony.

I wasn't aware Sony was pioneering cutting edge technology with their outdated consoles and shoddy network security.

I don't understand why people refer to themselves in the third person perspective.

I see it in the near future.

"Well, since we were sued so much, we decided to finally close our doors. We cancelled production of the PS4 and shut down the current PSN permanantly. I hope your happy with yourselves."

Possible? good? bad?

Do you honestly think this incident will force sony to fold? Yes they have lost on ps3 systems but the total amount lost since sales began is about 6 percent of their total worth. And that doesnt take into account how much they have made on games and peripherals...about 10 dollars per game (not gonna do the math).

Sony is not going to fold and they are not going to cancel the psx brand... Sony has been around for over 50 years and the psx brand is approaching its 20th birthday.

Even IF by some stroke of insanity there were so many winning countrywide class action lawsuits that it caused Sony to go bankrupt there will be some corporation or rich bastard who will scoop up the remains and reinvent the brand so quick it will make your head spin.

And this isnt fanboyism either im a PC man myself...this is just big business people. Sony is one of the most recognizable electronics manufacturer in the world and has been for a number of years. Whatever may come from this screw-up. Sony will be around for many years to come...in one way or another.


PS- A lot of people will lose their jobs because of this, they let go over 12,000 people in 2008 when they were sued by the US government to cover costs. A lot of people who had nothing to do with this incident are going to fall on hard times...very sad.

Every time I click on this thread, I have to shake my head at the idiocy that goes on here. While the company itself should definitely be held responsible for this incidence, the way reality works is actually contradictory for the good of the economy and society. Thinking about it, fining Sony huge fines in each country will simply cause Sony to let go of lower level workers who had no involvement in this situation. The drop of Sony stock value and firing of its workers en masse will certainly cause our poor economy to push the unemployment envelope even more. If the legal system has any desire at all to rectify this situation, they should fine only the upper management execs in charge or maintaining a shoddy level of network security and the damning silence afterwards as well as place conditions that not only do these fines come out of their own pockets, they cannot fire anyone in reaction.

As far as Sony stopping production future Playstations, that is honestly a pipe dream for XBox fanboys like Corky. The console market is far too tempting a market for Sony to simply pull out of and ignore. Sony may have lost out on the current console wars due to retarded decisions on their end and you can bet that they will learn from this (they have to if they don't want PS4 to suffer the same mistakes) and hopefully to not piss off the hacking community, especially those that have maturity issues.
