Yep! That insurance policy is certainly the best thing Sony did to compensate their fanbase since it addresses the real issue of the hack

It's sure as hell more praiseworthy than offering just PSN+ and a free download, but hell, I'll take that too.

Cant wait to get back online and play some Killzone 3

***The Senator also said Sony's network breach is part of the larger trend of cybercrime and "a reminder that our laws and data security resources must keep pace with advancing technology."***

Can't disagree with his comment. But, I hope he understands that those laws need to also work to protect businesses from individuals and not just ensure that corporations are doing everything possible to protect the information of the individuals. Going at this from just one side will only lead to limited services, decrease in technology advancement, and much higher costs for the consumer.

Usually they do nothing. Last month there a data breach involving a bunch of companies, Hilton, Marriot, Bestbuy etc. All I got were emails from each of the companies saying that someone stole their data. That's it, nothing more, no congressional inquiry.
