So everyone who has been claiming that Sony owes us for the outage is in luck! You aren’t alone.
Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal has jumped on the bandwagon of the PSN debacle, claiming that Sony should have “immediately notified [customers] about whether and to what extent their personal and financial information has been compromised. Additionally, PlayStation Network users should be provided with financial data security services, including free access to credit reporting services, for two years, the costs of which should be borne by Sony. Affected individuals should also be provided with sufficient insurance to protect them from the possible financial consequences of identity theft.”
The Senator goes on to demand more answers about how and why the breach happened, and what Sony plans to do to protect our information in the future. Certainly a laudable act right? A round of applause for the Senator from Connecticut!
Well, hold your applause for a moment.
