tarnished. Don't get me wrong, I had a wrong choice of words for Sony's involvement, but in reality, Sony has their surface back up in running where the ones who caused the incident was not Sony.
Sony has given back to the community offering a free month and a few other goodies. This for a free service where they are willing to pay for ANY damages for those who are effected by the breach. No one has anything to worry.
These "hackers" only damaged themselves in reality. They are now wanted, hurt the gaming community in which most of them supposedly stand for, and put millions at risk of their investment. Sony Online has their reputation bruised, but those effected were the user base. Sony CEOs have nothing to lose. They'll still have a nice 3 month vacation at the end of their involvement with Sony. Hackers on the other hand, no where near.
