OMFG Sony...

What was I thinking when I ordered the PS3 not even a week ago?!

I guess over the next few hours I will be contemplating whether or not I should sent the damn thing back! At this moment, the shock and outrage of this news, does result in one very serious thought: Do I ever want to register on PSN or even spent any of my money towards a company that can fail massively like this?
(Check the Details below if you're unaware of what has happened)

Taking it from the Top;...

Basically, they (meaning 'Sony') gave whomever may have had access to 'possibly' user's personal information, account details and/or logins and even worst; Credit-card information of 'potentially' millions of users a FULL WEEK head-start, before informing their customers? The potentially TRUE victims are simply kept in the dark for a week! One could only guess how much damage can be done with people's credit-card information in a weeks time, before the victim actually finds out.

The latest information on the PlayStation Network service outage.

Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve the current outage of PlayStation Network & Qriocity services. The following email has been sent to all PSN registrants; please read the help and support FAQ for more information.

Valued PlayStation Network/Qriocity Customer:

We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011, certain PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account information was compromised in connection with an illegal and unauthorized intrusion into our network. In response to this intrusion, we have:

  1. Temporarily turned off PlayStation Network and Qriocity services;
  2. Engaged an outside, recognized security firm to conduct a full and complete investigation into what happened; and
  3. Quickly taken steps to enhance security and strengthen our network infrastructure by re-building our system to provide you with greater protection of your personal information.

We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and goodwill as we do whatever it takes to resolve these issues as quickly and efficiently as practicable.

Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state/province, zip or postal code), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity passwords and login and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. While there is no evidence that credit card data was taken at this time, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, to be on the safe side we are advising that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may also have been obtained.

For your security, we encourage you to be especially aware of email, telephone, and postal mail scams that ask for personal or sensitive information. Sony will not contact you in any way, including by email, asking for your credit card number, social security, tax identification or similar number or other personally identifiable information. If you are asked for this information, you can be confident Sony is not the entity asking. When the PlayStation Network and Qriocity services are fully restored, we strongly recommend that you log on and change your password. Additionally, if you use your PlayStation Network or Qriocity user name or password for other unrelated services or accounts, we strongly recommend that you change them, as well.

To protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss, we encourage you to remain vigilant to review your account statements and to monitor your credit or similar types of reports.

We thank you for your patience as we complete our investigation of this incident, and we regret any inconvenience. Our teams are working around the clock on this, and services will be restored as soon as possible. Sony takes information protection very seriously and will continue to work to ensure that additional measures are taken to protect personally identifiable information. Providing quality and secure entertainment services to our customers is our utmost priority. Please contact us at should you have any additional questions.

Sony Network Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment Teams

I guess I can consider myself somewhat lucky though,... At least PSN was already down before my PS3 arrived and I never got to register on PSN yet!

Thank God for that!

Right now I think it's even worse that SONY never even told their customers that somebody may have had access to customer's personal information and credit-card information. The hackers now had ONE FULL WEEK to do what they want with all the information they got from SONY.

SONY should have warned their customers DAY ONE!

Right now,... I wouldn't trust SONY with a pre-paid-card nor do I feel they deserve my business anymore. If I can't trust them, that I can't spent money on it either. So what am I gonna do now? I just bought the PS3 last week. I could sent it back for a full refund, but how about the money I spent on the games?! You can't get refunds for Software/Games. So i'm screwed out of money no matter what I do!

SONY should get their arse sued for not informing their customer that they've had a security exploit steal private information!

I'm REALLY FUCKING PISSED about this,... coz it took me months to decide and convince myself if I should get another console,...
And now?! I can't trust SONY and so I don't want to spent my money towards them anymore or even have the damn thing connected, just to make sure my personal information, or whatever, isn't gonna be compromised in the future. They don't deserve to get even more of my money as a reward for this!

I should just sent it back and swallow the loss of money on the games. Maybe I can still sell them...

FUCK YOU SONY... I'm pissed!

So what's the purpose of having the PS3 now?

Sorry to say this. But of course hackers have it! I don't need one week to understand that those hackers have personal information and credit-card information. I can't read about this on news. I'm not mad at Sony at all. I'm pisst of at those hackers. I want to explain better. But this problem is to much for my brain right now. :suicide: Thanks again Hackers.
