What do you get?
A little offline time?

Cmon, not only are they compensating for a free service which is cool, but they are also giving away free games now for people to play? Imagine how mad you would be if this was XBL and you were actually losing money.

Give the company a little break here, its taking so long to get the network back up since they are trying to improve security so mistakes dont happen like this again. Dont hate the company, hate the Keyboard Warriors who got mad because there fellow cheapskate cant buy the games he wants.

Because they lost customer information and dragged their feet in doing anything about it. This should have never happened to begin with. There's a certain level of trust customers have with companies like Sony and MS when they give their information online. It's expected to be safe and secure. Turns out it wasn't. Trust lost. Funny thing is I havent even used the PSN in probably a good year and a half, yet my information was still on there. Am I upset about not being able to play online? Not in the slightest.

If you're dumb enough to think that a couple free games makes up for losing your personal information, to include any credit card info, perhaps you shouldn't be online. Think about it for a second. Sony screws up, dangles a couple of free games in front of your face and suddenly everything is okay? Are you mad?

Not too long ago my PayPal account was hacked after using fleabay recently. I had maintained trust in PayPal for YEARS until that point. Closed the account instantly after my money was refunded. Point being, once that trust is lost, it's never coming back.

Well

1) I'm intellegent enough to use PSN cards; your personal data is vulnerable the second you put it up on the internet. Not really a cop-out for Sony, but something I personally always bare in mind when on the internet.

2) I dunno about other places, but credit cards have a 3 digit security code that wasn't stored. They need that to do anything. Still not a cop-out though.

3) There have been data leaks in the past from banks, government etc. Stuff like that happens everywhere, so I figure that there's no point locking myself down - just make sure its a decently secure place. To draw a comparison, if places like the CIA can get hacked, I'm pretty sure places like Sony can. Nothing is secure; just make sure its safe enough that its not lying around.

WIN!

I hope they are decent games.
post #56 of 253
Sony:
We're sorry we used out dated protective measures for your personal data and therefore lost a bunch of it, but don't worry, here are two free games.

Populace:
Free games? Oh hell yeah! Gimme!
-----------------------------------------------
Sony knows how their customers are... free stuff = distraction and they know it will work. More power to them quite frankly.

Don't hate the player, hate the game. Sony's beating your highscore too.

Score! This will be sick!

EDIT: I hardly use my PS3 anyways, so this outage hasn't affected me in the slightest, so now I get 2 free games to actually play on my PS3... Total win for me. Probably wont be a newer game though, but I guess we will see.

I take it you didn't hear about all the credit card information that got stolen?

You make it sound like one of the biggest data security breaches ever is no big deal.

Where did they confirm it was taken? Last time I heard they said they could see no evidence that it was stolen, but couldn't rule it out. They did confirm that user details were stolen.

People are getting mad at the wrong things.

Don't be pissed that the network is down, be pissed that your personal information is out in the open, and possibly CC data.

I'm mad at Sony because they failed to inform their user base of anything possibly wrong for almost a week, a little heads up would have been much appreciated.
