— Japanese entertainment and technology giant Sony faces a battle to regain the trust of millions of consumers after online networks integral to its strategy were hacked, say analysts.
just put the f**ken psn back up already
PSN needs to be back up before we see articles like this. There's some measurable gage to public reaction. It could go up tomorrow with make up gifts given out with things going back to normal the next day. At least by general public reaction. On the other hand, I'm certain sites and blogs wont be forgiving Sony for this for years to come. [email protected]: Why do people trust MS when their key product has been hacked and compromised any number of times. Not that it will likely be the end of PSN if it gets hacked as soon as its up again.
"I'm certain sites and blogs wont be forgiving Sony for this for years to come." who gives a s**t about those sites anyway. we know they do it for hits. They themselves know what went down as well, it got hacked by the same people who are butt-hurt that they cant do what they want.. or do they want a taste of hacking so that they can shut up?
i'm expecting ... PSN is back up,BUT can we trust Psn/Sony? Articles lol stupid Articles.. why do we need to even forgive Sony,it's not like they hacked there own systems -_-
@ DarkFantasy It's not about about that hacking, it was the theft of personal data that the user needs to make a decision on to trust Sony again or not. I myself never lost trust, because i've seen doctors offices, and dentist offices, even schools just throw out paper work with personal information such as name, home address, social security number etc. I know from personal experience, of the hassel one has to go through just to make the other person belive, you are who you say you are.
Maybe because the PSN breach is one of the largest in history? Also the sheer amount of publicity the PSN breach has received is why people will have a hard time trusting Sony again. I have full faith that Sony will bring new security protocols to PSN so I am not worried at all... However there are some that won't based on all the press this situation has received
these trouble making hackers will get caught no matter what happens
i just hope it doesnt take much longer... i miss playing online. hope they fix it soon.
These articles need to stop. As soon as PSN goes back up, people will go nuts for it. It'll probably actually reach a higher online player count than the amount of people that were online the day before it went down. Add on top of that the great exclusives still to come which are bound to brush this whole situation away. Excluding the 360 fanboys who will hold a grudge forever and bias journalists who will create articles such as "PSN back online, freebies disapointing" or "PSN back online, gamers still don't trust sony" or whatever other crap they come up with.
yeah it has been bad its been 3 weeks but i dont think its to late for sony to win back the communty that it has.
Well crap was hopeing to get up today and psn be up. I do beleave i may go rent a game today. Lets go sony fire this platic bit(h up.
I figure if you still have your ps3 and an internet connect , the moment you turn in on and then it says : Signed in : please update to V.3.61 everyone including me will be be tearing in joy and then All's Right with the World. just remember we live in the moment while our memories tarnish.
lol thats the day we all are waiting for that moment when it says signed in Please update the world will go back to the way he had it before.
After this I won't ever complain about another firmware update ever again
You wouldn't say that if you owned a PSP. The system is worth so much more than the updates its received over the past 12-18 months.
Support died for the PSP because of the hackers enabling piracy on the system in the name of homebrew support. How's that for a funny coincidence.
If Sony rolls into E3 with the network still down they are gonna be in a world of hurt.
PSN Patrick Stewart Network.
From the responses to these articles, the PSN isnt really needed, so whats all the fuss?
That is funny....and true. I would think, after reading the comments on N4G, the PS3 crowd dosn't even like to play online, or at least dosn't care one way or the other.
Really? You people just make crap up? Do people miss PSN? Yes. Is it all they ever use their PS3 for? Not likely. There is a plethora of single player games for people to play, people might miss PSN but the PS3 is still used for SP games.
Everyday this drags on it makes it that much harder!!!!! SONY really needs to get psn up and running b4 its to late.
I don't about you guys but i grew up playing Sony systems and just cuz of this incident i'm not gonna lose my trust in them this can happen to anyone. @baba Yea i see what you're saying but most people think just cuz a system can't go online for a few days or weeks is considered useless>_<.
of course not, but it is pretty bad what is going on. not becouse i cant live without the psn, but becouse the ps3 isnt the same without it, and we cant deny that.
Right! It's not the same without it but it's not entirely useless like some seem to think.
I kinda glad this happens. This made Sony aware of the security flaws and learned lessons from their mistakes. Remember PSN are still technically new. It's only been implemented this gen compared to Xbox live that is almost 10 years old. I'm expecting PSN 2.0 to be more secured on this current gen and upcoming Sony's console and portable. I'm still hoping that is the last time we would ever see the PSN down for this long..
man! it must suck to only have a ps3... i say it sucks cause psn is not coming back anytime soon like everyone hopes/thinks it is.. they had a major breach sony has to do everything over again and something like that doesnt happen in weeks it takes months..
In Sony We Trust
lmao! What's that sucking sound i hear??
The same sucking sound you hear day in and day out on this site. It's a fucking joke.
This is a story written about everything we've already read and known now for 3 weeks...awesome.
