Thirsty Conversations: PSN Hack Edition

by Ernice Gilbert on April 27th, 2011, under Other Stuff

Sony’s messed up in the biggest way possible when a hacker cracked the PlayStation Network and took over 75 million people’s information, including first and last name, date of birth, address etc., – we’re not even sure if our credit card information is safe. It’s a catastrophe of deafening proportions, can Sony recover?

It’s time to talk, do it here, The Official Gamesthirst Talk Zone.

    We really will not know how bad it is until they tell us more. I am not fully blaming Sony on this because it can happen to any company, but they should have made the public aware earlier. What I find ridiculous is that MS is not taking advantage of this. They could announce some new games or something and take advantage of the moment. Sony will get it worked out and the PSN will be up when it is ready. I would not doubt if they are working on some great new stuff for when it comes back up.

    Yeah, same here. In fact I”m prepping an article as we speak. But I do believe MS will gain in some way because of this whole mess. We’ll just have to see – but if Sony comes hard, with new features and all – this could equal a massive win for the company…

    they most certainly will benefit from this.
    allot of people are buying the 360 versions of games so they can play online.
    the gold trial weekend was a really sneaky tactic, unfair if you ask me you don’t kick someone when there down.
    but then i guess alls fair in love and war.

    Exactly Nick, it’s war. About Monday and PSN is back up! We’ll see how it all unfolds.
