I read a very interesting article in gameinformer regarding the psn issue. On my phone so not going into detail right now, but was a good read.
After working retail for years when I was a teen I can confirm this is true. However, there is a difference between owning a Sony product and liking it...and only owning Sony products and not even considering what other brands have to offer because of brand loyalty/fanboyism. This is the case very often.

Regardless, this thread is about the free identity theft protection being offered by Sony. Not predictions of their company or how many other hacks they are suffering from.

Their brand is in pieces. This is what happens when you mess with hackers when you have no security.
Yeah, because Sony doesnt have Sony Pictures, SCE, or Sony Music (BGE).

Uh, what? I own a PS3, the only current-gen console out there. Why? I had THREE XBox 360's. All of which died on me because of crap quality control and engineering on MS's part. And let's face it, the Wii is absolute garbage.

It has nothing to do with fanboyism, it has everything to do with options and quality of a product.

Back on topic: Sony is being responsible here and offering free protection to its customers. Can't go wrong there. Good on them.

12 month identity theft protection is not really much.

Someone could sit on some of the data since b-days and addresses do not change often.
Once again...

My identity theft protection program is great. I just got my credit down to a score of 300 and now no one wants to steal my crap.

Sony doesn't only produce PS3's...I'm talking about all their electronics. I worked retail and some people are just gung-ho for only Sony televisions, MP3 players, home theater equipment, etc. without actually seeing what other brands/equipment has to offer. When I spoke of fanboyism I was speaking about the SONY name not the PLAYSTATION name.

Sony won't die, not even close. They're such a huge corporation that something like this will only make a dent in their pocket and name.

Regardless, Sony is at least trying to compensate for loss of personal information in a more correct way. The company also offers insurance for any identity theft as well which is a huge plus. I do think that Sony is doing this more in an attempt to quell any large class action lawsuits than due to guilt.

Sony is not even remotely finished, They got hacked, in the big scheme of things, its no major biggie, yes they will take a loss due to lawsuits etc but you have clearly forgotten that Playstation is not the only trademark that belongs to Sony and Sony have there hands in MANY other business sectors than just gaming. Trust me , they are not going anywhere for the foreseeable future.

Shouldn't identity theft protection just...be there? Why the hell should we have to even worry about a subscription for that?

Oh, I see. Well, i aplogize in that case. Perhaps I read wrong or you didn't elaborate enough. In either case, I see where you're coming from.

Anyone remember when people here at OCN were saying "I'll never buy another Sony product again" when the whole Geohot case was going on? I wonder how many of them since then have bought Scythe fans? They use Sony bearing technology.

Anyway. Sony could have said "tough crap" to its customers and offered nothing. I think this is a proactive step, something that hasn't even been demanded of them, and they're doing it.
