Sony, it’s time to act like Sony again

Let’s face it, Sony, you aren’t doing much right. You can’t keep the PlayStation Network online, which just happens to be your primary gaming and content delivery service. Your multitude of business units still seem to be at odds with one another. You’re playing catch up or second fiddle in almost all of your major markets: computers, mobile devices, TVs, video games. What’s most troubling is that your best ideas never seem to hit the market soon enough, or with enough polish, to actually move the needle.

*Waits for torrent of reports*

They have had a few issues recently but their games have never been better and that's what it's all about.

Sony is currently leading MS in the console business so where do you get this second fiddle nonsense?

"The last we heard, on 1st April, worldwide PS3 sales - actual to-consumer sales - were alleged to be 43.4 million. Worldwide Xbox 360 sales were said to be lower, with the total standing at 42.9 million."

Sony: "F*ck you."

Note: ^That is how the Sony act like. I guess the author want Sony to act like its arrogant old self, telling everybody to f*ck off.

I can't lie, as much as I love their games and systems, it seems that part of them just hasn't got with the programme when it comes to Online and networking. If proper precautions were taken, this could have been avoided. But meh, the only people to blame really are the hackers. As long as Sony keep pumping out the great games, great hardware and great services for PS3, PSP and beyond, I'm a happy customer, despite this PSN debacle.

to me PSN is a great service i dont think they are lagging behead in online service in my option i think sony is doing a great job running there services

I'm actually glad the PSN is down, PlayStation was always about singleplayer, we must go back to our origins. I hope people will find the true meaning and essence and strenth of the PlayStation brand.

Ofcourse, I love the PSN too, its part of the PlayStation family, but singleplayer above all!

Hindsight tells us that clearly Sony could have done more to keep our data secure. Unfortunately you only have the luxury of hindsight *after* an event occurs. I'm sure that before this breach Sony thought that their network was secure. Amazon probably thought the same before EC2 was hacked. Target, Best Buy, and many others also probably felt they were safe.

It only takes one disgruntled person with intimate knowledge of online security to put a serious hurting on any online entity. Very often these services are infiltrated because a disgruntled employee let the cat of the bag. No one is immune to this.

@Arksine
I agree with you 100%.

I'm still think this is such a big deal because, Sony is the last counsel network to be hacked. No body talked about XBL being hacked because, it's already old news.

I just wan to see how Sony recovers from this! What new steps do they put in place to make sure it's a long time before this happens again if ever!

"You can’t keep the PlayStation Network online, which just happens to be your primary gaming and content delivery service"

Ehrm. They could easily just turn the system back up. After all it was they who shut it down not the hacker. It just so happens that they decided to rebuild the network. is he saying they shouldnt rebuild the network or is he saying its taking to long in which case he has no idea how big of a job that is. Nomather what its just a stupid thing to say.

finnhima2336d ago

Ugh ive never seen so many *shame on sony* articles who take away from the concrete hard fact that it were HACKERS that did this and it was SONY who brought down psn to protect us. UGH!!!!

Black102WingS2336d ago
