Sony and the PSN Outage: Your Opinion

STN Writes:

Right or wrong there has been an awful lot of bad press surrounding Sony recently. Sony has been accused of not acting fast enough, not keeping users informed and for being irresponsible with users data. Other people think Sony has acted in a perfectly responsible manner and done all it can to safeguard user data.

But we want your opinion, do you still feel loyal? Do you still trust Sony with your data?

Email addresses and passwords stored clear text. FULL F'ING STOP.

Im in Florida, Im all sun burned from playing all day yesterday at Islands of Adventure. I was gonna head over to Titusville today to watch the shuttle launch, well that got canceled. So here I am, not trolling at all, just pointing out the truth that you don't like to think about.

How about you stop trolling and grow up?

BK-2012420d ago

You don't even have a PS3 so your opinion doesn't matter. Whats more is, you spend almost ALL your time trolling these articles. Go do something better with your life.

Email addresses, not that important.

Passwords, if you used the same password for everything, change it on everything else. When PSN is back up Sony already said a password change will be required.

Therefore, nothing to worry about. Relax.

"Other people think Sony has acted in a perfectly responsible manner and done all it can to safeguard user data."

I'm in this camp.

Part of that entails letting us know about a breach when it happens. Would you had still felt the same way if someone had been using your credit card last weekend?

"Would you had still felt the same way if someone had been using your credit card last weekend?"

If CC info had actually been leaked in non-encrypted form, maybe not. But no info has been confirmed connected with this incident.

I don't live in the land of What Ifs.

No fanboys don't. Here you are apologizing for Sony and making excuses for them. God forbid anyone holds them accountable.

ilikestuff2420d ago

i can agree if once they found out the hackers got our info they told us and didnt wait. if they waited they screwed the pooch. oh, and id like updates more often.

I've been using PSN cards for a good while so I'm not going nuts over this. I think Sony did a good job handling this and took action immediately when this situation popped up. I won't be trading in my PS3 or anything of that nature.

If anything, the fingers should be pointed at the ones who did this in the first place. They wanted to embarrass Sony but at the expense of customers. I hope they're found and brought to justice.

The kind of information that was stolen is always at risk as soon as you enter it online, whether its PSN, Xbox Live, Amazon, Ebay, or anywhere else. Yes it was on a bigger scale, but this has happened before. Its no reason to lose trust, and certainly no reason to stop playing your PS3. All these articles are getting very annoying.

fedexas2420d ago

Some people don't want to accept the fact that this could have happened on any console or to any company. It's really sad and pathetic.
