    inb4 serves them right.

    It's not the video game branch, don't relate the 2.

    It seems like hackers who live for the thrill of the exploit has realised how lax Sony's security measures are, and Sony's thrift has come back to haunt them in the form of people taking advantage of that.

    Huge financial loses, another hack, it can't possibly get worse now though.

    If someone gave me half a penny each time the word "Sony" and "hack" appeared in the same sentence, I would be a billionaire now o.O

    Everyone at Sony must be weeping by now.

    More like looking for new jobs in case Sony continues to fall apart.

    I really doubt Sony cares.
    They're one of the biggest multimedia companies on the planet. The monetary losses from downtime can't be more than a dent in their worth.

    It probably annoys them, but barley hurts them.

    It certainly hurts their reputation though.

    Very true, but how many devout Sony users are going to remember this in 5 years?

    Sony hacked yet again, eh? Anyone else expecting the store to come back online tomorrow only to be hacked within about fifteen minutes and taken straight back down? Seriously, what's with the war on Sony? This isn't still backlash from the whole GeoHot thing, surely?

    Yeah, my dad wants to get the DLC for Tiger Woods Masters 'cause he can't continue with his career properly without it (he'd have to skip several tournaments and forfeight a lot of EXP.) so I told him to get a pre-paid card instead of using his credit card. Just in case.

    No concern of mine though, I have the 360 in my room and I always use pre-paid cards anyway. Stops me over-spending and it's a nice challenge, getting the most good stuff with limited points. The point limitation also lead me to the Indie games market, where I've found some nice hidden treasures.

    Between insane and insecure
    It's bad when even I feel bad for Sony. This is totally uncalled for and just getting out of hand. Yes Sony is a soulless corporation, but at the same time they don't deserve this much shit.
