Sony took their sweet time in responding to it. As a consumer, I felt it was wholly irresponsible. Therefore, I am no longer a Sony customer. Thankfully that's my right as a consumer. If you feel comforted because they handed out some free games, that's your call.
If this were to happen to my bank or any other service provider, I would do the same thing. Businesses that respect and protect their customers personal information get my business. It's not a bad way to go.
Yes and that has literally never happened to the paid service Microsoft offers
Anything can get hacked into, even Steam. If Steam gets hacked into will you throw all your computer things away? If you save your credit card info on something connected to the internet then it's your own fault if you lose it because of hacking.
