"That means Sony now have to take the 'hit' hence the alleged debt against his account."

Yes, but Sony should know with whom that transaction was made and hence recall the payment they made and so not be out of pocket. I suspect that Sony either didn't bother chasing the fraudulently transacted monies, or it acted too late and the money had moved on, leaving a dead account with the organisation (PayPal?) who hosted the account refusing to refund monies...
