Does the PSN have cards like XBL? If this ever happened on XBL I wouldn't have any information stolen as I have never put any in.
I loved my days on PSN w/ my PS2, but thanks to Halo I have been converted. I totally love the option of never having to share my personal information in order to play online.

Sony detects an intrusion. Immediately shuts down PSN. They initiate an investigation, then contact an outside security firm for assisstance. A couple days into the investigation it became clear what happened and what was targeted. Law Enforcement is advised and the press/consumers then informed.
So see, Sony didn't know what to explain for a couple days. Then they probably needed legal/law enforcement advice as to what to reveal.
I still wish things had come out sooner, but rationally I can understand the trickling out of info when I look at Sony's explained timeline of events.

I still think that it's more likely that Godzilla is involved. The whole earthquake thing was a lie.

It's irritating to us, but can you imagine the bricks that Sony Suits are ****ing?! This is five days offline now. Imagine the money they are losing. Not to mention the hits to their reputation.
If they were hacked, those hackers better be ex-MI6 or some other awesome impossible mission force because depending on the location of the servers they won't just have the FBI on them but it could fall under Interpol (if I understand the legalese correctly).
I'd guess that SOCOM 4 sales are going to tank for the first couple of weeks. It would be wise of Sony, to push the launch back a couple of weeks.

As far as the PSN, I hope it's up soon, but more importantly, I like that I get 1 year free of identity theft protection on my credit card, plus a month free subscription to playstation plus offers.

Maybe FreeRealms will be a freebie. My kids like it and I can dig more of it than I thought I would. Getting a lifetime ($30 value) membership for free would be cool.

ya but you don't get free games as a subscriber, just discounts, so it's still freebie. I think for plus subscribers you still get something extra, like free music downloads or something...
Nope, as well as discounts you get free games every month on PS+
Posted 09 May 2011 - 04:53 AM
don't you get a month of PS+ for free if you are already a subscriber?
I don't really care about getting freebiews as i'm a PS+ subscriber and that's a benefit I already get.
