Why they had to wait a week before announcing the news: “laws in a number of states in the US that have legal requirements....you can't just go out there and drop a statement like that without being able to answer some fundamental questions. You need to do your due diligence before you make a statement. “

“yes, we are profitable on the PS3 hardware and we'll continue to be profitable on the PS3 hardware”
Great news for gamers, because it makes sure they have the money to develop games, develop the PS4 and keep PSN free.

And it’s also interesting that he thinks all networks are vulnerable to this kind of threat. It sems they were over-confident and not strong enough on their security, but even so, it shows how big a threat hackers are to civil society in an age when everything goes through the internet

Gotta work a dig in there at them one way or another, don't you? You act as if they were bragging about their online security every other day.

only information flows through the internet, there are ways to remove the incentive of hacking but the systems that the world use are outdated, government is slow to act.

we need more rules and regulations from the governments of the world, theyre helplessly behind in computing technologies
laws like the one kazao mentioned are one set of laws that need to be removed, and have another implemented in their place
