How exactly would it cost sony 24 billion? I just don't see it. Who came up with this number, and more importantly how did they come with that number.

I just got a sony ps3. I always use fake info and a junk email address I don't care about. I haven't bought anything either. I guess I'm good. I think all people want is for the playstation network to get back online.

Even larger could be the cost from the potential information theft. In an article today, Forbes cites data-security research firm The Ponemon Institute as estimating the "cost of a data breach involving a malicious or criminal act" was, on average, $318 per compromised account. Given the most recent PSN population estimate, that formula puts the potential cost as being over $24 billion.

From the OP. read the article before you bash it.
