Sit Down And Shut Up, Will Ya? Try Not To Live Up To All My Expectations

by Rainier on May 4, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Whether you are a PS3, X360, Wii or PC fan, you have to admit that by now, there's so much egg on Sony's face, it must be hard for them to see.

While a $1 billion lawsuit may be a little extreme, I'm not really surprised that this is happening, and it probably won't be the last, either. I'm baffled that this happened in the first place, but the initial reaction also made me scratch my head.

Shortly after it happened, Sony was already on the case, rebuilding its network, improving security and infrastructure, and even moving it to a more secure location. Were they previously running it on a Pentium I computer under the basement stairs, unprotected? Sony Online's data was secure — oh wait, no it wasn't!

Man, what a mess ....
