Playstation Network – The hell, Sony?

As I’m sure everyone’s heard at this point, Sony had a huge information breach with the Playstation Network (on the order of 75 million accounts).

As a user of PSN, I’m severely disappointed in how Sony’s handling this. My credit card, address, password, email, etc. were all on there and now are all┬ácompromised.

What triggered this post though is that I noticed that I got an email from Sony with an explanation of the situation and an apology.


…in Japanese.


I have both a US and Japanese PSN account tied to different emails, and I haven’t gotten any notification of the sort from US Sony about a leak or an explanation of the extended downtime. It bothers me that I got that info from external sources (ars, slashdot, etc.) more than a week before (Japanese) Sony gave an explanation, which is more than a week after the leak was discovered.


Stay classy, Sony.
