Yes I agree. Holding Sony accountable for breaking the law and allowing 77 million hard working citizens' info get stolen is getting old fast. We should be talking about more important things in the news section, like video cards and the Royal Wedding!!!1111oneoneone!!1

Not trying to start a war here, but you just said the average consumer who buys gaming consoles to play games, doesn't know or care much about games...

Now again, not starting a war, I'm sure there's many reasons to jailbreak a PS3.. but so far the number 1 reason or use of a jail broken system is to play bootleg games. Which is flat out wrong. What's his face has exposed the system in a way that can lead to acts of thievery. On this specific case I am behind Sony.

In some countries privacy is protected by law and leaks as large as this one result in criminal charges being brought against who is responsible (if anyone) for the loss. It is no different than if a commercial building has a fire and people die, there is a criminal investigation. If things like the building code were not up to par or people were found to be ignoring safety protocol, they are held criminally responsible for the deaths. But if no one is found responsible for the fire, then obviously no one is held responsible. In Sony's case however, every PS3 was able to access the 77 million accounts without needing so much as a username or password, so we know at least one person is in deep trouble.

I think you read that wrong, it was part of a list that ended with "as much as gamers on OCN. Sorry if I wrote it in a confusing way.

Sony said the credit card data was encrypted. And even so, to use a credit card don't you need either of these things?

  • PIN
  • Signature
  • CSC
None of that information was available on PSN.

Hilarious. When the justice department finds the people who stole this information, and they will, guess what message will be the most pervasive? I sure hope these people are enjoying their last days of freedom, because they're going to die in prison. I sure hope people will start to realize that there are consequences to their actions even when you commit the crime from your mom's basement.

Honestly, I can see some random guy who is very modest, mannerly, and intelligent, just coming out of nowhere and laying the smackdown on everyone.
