I fail to see the connection between the two.

Move on.

Well of course there's a connection, they're both online networks.

yes we never used to have online gaming on consoles but now it's standard and i've got at least 2 games I really want to be playing online on my ps3 right now and can't

sikbeta2791d ago

MS are pro in the Software dept and Sony are pro in the Hardware dept, guess both can learn one from each other...

Really? Honestly though do you really think Mircosoft's or Nintendo's online security is any tighter than Sony's.

I am doubtful. Likely all 3 will be certain to beef up security in some way after this.

I still say Geohot, and Annon are responsible. They draw alot of attention to themselves and someone else says hmm... maybe I can go under the radar get some cash and fly their flag when/if I am caught.

Ju2791d ago

Yeah, I can see that. MS being a victim of constant security breaches for years has experience how to handle loopholes. That's for sure. Patch it up every other day. Ever took a look into your Windows update history?

Oner2791d ago (Edited 2791d ago )

So let me get this straight ~ Sony can learn from Microsoft when LIVE! has had not only the same issues with breaches, but WAAAY more & frequent outages PLUS Microsoft has probably the worlds most pirated & technically insecure software with WINDOWS!?!?!

Uhm...yeah...sure...that makes sooo much sense. /rollseyes

one keeps in touch with their customers and is secure, one isn't

zeksta2791d ago

And you need to keep in touch with reality.

tdrules2791d ago

the reality?
not being told the situation about my data on PSN for a week.
that's the situation and i'm jersey shore about it

XRider2791d ago

@zeksta Reality? well in "reality" one is down and the other isn't. PSN is going to be down for 6 more days, thats reality.

@tdrules both MS and Sony keep in touch with their customers. To say Sony doesn't care about the people that make them money is... well.

KonaBro2791d ago

One nickel and dimes you by forcing you to pay for a service that comes on every other console for free while the other doesn't. Don't even try to start with the "you get what you pay for" bull because it can just as easily happen to XBL as it did PSN.

radphil2791d ago (Edited 2791d ago )

"one keeps in touch with their customers and is secure, one isn't"

Sure as hell didn't keep in touch when my 1st batch system console went down, until AFTER the lawsuit. >_>

Now i'm waiting to see people knee-jerk as to which company I speak of.

Ju2791d ago (Edited 2791d ago )

"it can just as easily happen to XBL as it did PSN."

It already did. XBL was down for a week or so a while ago (over Christmas last year or something). And nobody demanded from MS to come up why. Regular maintenance for all we know.

Confused as to why I've been disagreed with so much? Were all the agrees PS3 fans and the disagrees Xbox fans?

If so, I like both formats. Just saying that these comparisons do nothing but provoke flame wars, which are retarded and needless really.

Bring on the disagrees.

rabidpancakeburglar2791d ago

Saying that is all well and good but in circumstances where your games service is being taken over by hackers sonys "heavy handed" actions were the correct ones to take

hay2791d ago

Yup, I fail to see how "expert" this person is making claims like that, except having a company named after himself.

rabidpancakeburglar2791d ago

I know, the first thing I noticed was the fact that this guy was full enough of himself to name his company after himself

Ju2791d ago

He didn't even say why they could learn from MS. Just tossed out a name.

pupa2791d ago

What idiots, so allow these low life scum basement dwellers to blackmail large corporations then. Idiots! If you think Sony was heavy handed wait for the next round.

Honest_gamer2791d ago

ofcourse they could almost any company could, microsoft is a software giant so it makes since and the same is true microsoft c ould learn from son in making hard ware reliable etc.....they should work together! best software and best hardware = gamers win

clintos592791d ago (Edited 2791d ago )

No thanx, if anything I want ms to learn how to bring us more exclusives for the hardcore, could give a sh1t about being hacked because i use $20 psn cards instead of credit cards, its the safest way to go.

Edit: B!tch slap me? lol not my fault their willing to really think psn or xbl is trustworthy of your credit card password. If your smart u would use psn or xbl cards instead. And u act like xbl is hackerproof,coming from a 360 fanboy such as yourself, lachance lol. Dont make me laugh or ill b1tch slap u & the rest of those who follow u.

I hope you understand that a credit card has less value when compared with your personal information.
Personal info can lead to identity theft, loans being purchased in your name.
Trust me I have no problem with Sony, I have a bravia TV, I used to have a vaio laptop and I am thinking about buying the sony tablet, but the fact that personal information is not secure will always be in the back of my mind.
MS actually have bought multiplayer to consoles, xbox live is the pioneer of it, every PSN fan will say p2p etc...But xbox live hasnt lost details has it?
If security experts around the world agree Sony F'd up big time, and many countries are investigating these breaches Sony have done something wrong.

"Sony needs to accept that they no longer own and control the PS3 when they sell it to you. Notice it's only PSN that gave away all your personal data, not Xbox Live when the 360 was hacked, not iTunes when the iPhone was jailbroken, and not GMail when Android was rooted. Because other companies aren't crazy.”
