Well played Sony


My tl;dr version of the events so far:

  • More than two weeks ago PSN and SOE got hacked, nobody gets told, it's just a maintenance.
  • Four days later they admit they got hacked. And oh, we're talking about 77 mio + 25 mio Accounts containing E-Mails, passwords, addresses, creditcard information etc. nvm guys ^_^
  • USA congress writes a letter to Sony asking for some statement, the answer is a bad joke, trying to blame anonymous. Still no usefull information.
  • PSN should be online again on May the 3rd. That was 6 days ago, no information since that announcement. (Edit: see edit below!)

At first I was just really pissed that I bought the PS3 version of Portal 2 (awesome game, check my first blogentry) which comes with a Steamkey for the PC version which I really wanted to play in coop.
I can't even play the PS3 coop at the moment.
Now I'm more like "fuck you Sony. No really, please, just fuck you" and thinking about selling my PS3 for a Shitbox 360. I mean, seriously, is this their definition of quallity costumer service?
I hope that Sony suffers the biggest lost of finances and reputation they ever made.
The only company I'd like to see suffer more is Apple.


Any former PS3-bro feeling with me?


Edit/update:
"The company is in the process of adopting an improved security system and its plan to restart the services fully by May 31 is unchanged" (source)
Six weeks of no information politics to get their shit running again. Just... no comment.

  14. They're protection wasn't good enough, and technically they were breaking the rules by not having it up to scratch.

  24. Sony has lost a great chunk of business because of this, and I am glad! They needed to learn that the PS3 was a huge flop and not continue to keep adding shit onto it.

  25. You get the online service you pay for. I own both consoles but I dont often use my PS3 except for bluray.

  26. Apple can suck my balls. :p Sony better give us SOMETHING better than a month of Pro... that's some BS. :\

  27. Sony is essentially the Japanese Apple. Slathering fanboys and a company that only cares about making money. At least Apple has some semblance of quality control though when it comes to their hardware
