Aha, but what about the potentially massive loss to Sony's reputation?
That is one thing they DO deserve. If customers suffer then Sony (morally should) be liable.
I have been a Sony PS fanboy for years before this, but now I'm drifting away.
a)because of the Removal of the OtherOS feature (I didn't use it that often, but it was the principle and the attitude of Sony)
b)They sued Playstation hackers. These guys only unlocked it to support homebrew. Not piracy. You could say that they contributed to enabling piracy, but did THEY enable piracy?
c) Because of this potential loss of crucial data. They haven't stored the details securely, that 77 Million or so users have entrusted them to do. They have shown a horrendous disregard to their users.
You could add d) PSN has been down for 7 days, but I don't use the PSN: I was once a user, but homebrew was too tempting.
