    Yes since this the the SECOND time within a less than 30 days that they have been hacked. This shows the lack of care they have for their customers. And complete disrespect.

    This reminds me, I need to get a PS3 sometime soon.

    I wouldn't say they don't care about their consumers. A company without consumers is a dead company. I don't know if it's Sony rushing the process of getting their consumers back online (which, hey, is a selling point of the PS3) or if hackers are just really persistent since the first hack.

    ...you didn't SERIOSLY expect them to re-program the whole PSN infrastructure within a week, did you...? It takes time, that's why it's not LAUNCHED yet. Jeez...

    this really has nothing to do with that

    its now obvious somebody is out to get them
    evidence is pointing to an inside job right now though on both attacks

    It wasnt psn that was hacked. It was SOE. Sony Online Entertainment. Two very different companies. Plus the data was stored on TWO different data banks. This means that they have no excuse saying that ohh we accidentally didnt use proper security on this server.

    You say that as though they're hacking themselves.

    You can't do much with credit card number and exp. date alone. You would need name, address, and 3 digits security code on the back (for AMEX, 4 digits on the front) in order to use that credit account. Credit card companies will deny transactions if all hacker have are credit card numbers and exp.dates.

    Sadly this just makes me wonder if Sony is going to ever remodel their security infrastructure? I mean SOE is using the same one after they got hacked a few days ago. Now again, they are claiming to be hacked again. I wonder what other PS3 owners are saying about this?

    In other news, Sony CEO admits he's the hacker. This total shock and dismay haven't register to their fans until a few day later.
