PlayStation Network Breach Handling 'Half-Hearted, Half-Baked,' says House

PlayStation Network's hack is continuing to put Sony in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Although Kaz Hirai provided a lengthy letter, detailing the breach of Sony's networks, Sony and data firm Epsilon both decided not to show up at the congressional hearing and that really rubbed Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), chair of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, the wrong way.

I think Sony had every right not to drop everything and come to the beck and call of congress. Sheesh these guys haven't got the time to come out and explain things to laymen.

If congress want answers by all means ask...they responded whats the problem. I imagine everyone has their hands full.

While I fully believe that yes some accountability has to take place...give them some bloody breathing space.

If they wish to change the laws so mote it be but I hope they don't retroactivly throw the book at them.

A Republican (pro-Business) Congress women doesn't like how Sony (a busineness) handled the situation?

Maybe she should change to the Democratic party (pro-Consumer).

i like that Kaz told them why it took so long to alert consumers.

...and then she just asks the question again.

what the hell else does she want from them? all the answers are right there in the letter. now, if you disagree with how they handled it, that's fine.

but, keep asking the same questions, and you'll get the same answers.

They are politicians, these hearings are about them making a show, not to get actual answers, and if they really cared they would have had this hearing in the first week of the breach not just after it became a popular issue.

As if the REAL world did not know this already...They hid the fact that info was stolen for a week to avoid backlash...whats that a mistake?

False,they didn't hide anything. Less than 24 hours passed between Sony’s investigation discovering this and them posting the blog post.

James Brightman is a well known SONY hater.

I've been a member of N4G for years, and have read many articles from James Brightman and Industrygamers, and can attest to the fact that they are in fact anti-Sony biased.

Every single, solitary time I read an article by James Brightman, it's something negative about Sony or the PS3.
