Sony Computer Entertainment of America declined to testify at a Congressional hearing about the threat of data theft to American consumers, but will continue to work to answer Congressional questions, officials tell Kotaku.
So they decline to testify because of an internal investigation. This is common. Even when there is no internal investigation people and groups decline all the time.
they decline for a simple reason, they don't answer to Congress, Congress can come to Sony and ask their questions
If CC info HAD been leaked unencrypted, this would anger me, but considering the situation, I don't really see the need to testify in front of congress.
Not surprised, hopefully though things don't somehow turn ugly.
I'm glad they did they might find out some new, valuable information regarding what seems to be an ever evolving situation.
Sony was smart to avoid going to an actual hearing. All that will do is drag them through the mud more, its a PR nightmare as is...no need to be on camera being asked "why didn't you do this or that..."
They did not have to be there and it's a good idea they were not.
After finding about Bin Laden's whereabouts from the PSN, the Government wants Sony 'Down for the Count' for the links with Bin Laden *Throws gulab* :P
This is complete BS what Sony have to go there.Hackers decided to hack their servers.Do you really think Sony asked for this to happen.Only thing Sony have been doing is pushing gaming to a new level.But spoil ass kids that havent worked a day in their life is bitching. I have a job were I work 12 hours a day.But my hours are flexible so I enjoy coming home and playing my games.But NO bc ur greedy ass I cant do that.My anger not towards Sony its towards those fuking hackers. Then you get articles based on nothing but flamewars.Because when you get fanyboys fussing that = hits on ur site.Sony is a great company its a shame this happen too them. I'm a fan of Sony because of their gaming division.So I would like to say thanks for sticking up too these hackers.And once PSN is back up you have my full support. Sorry for rant ;)
