Seriously?  That information was stolen because of Sony?

That makes ZERO sense.  It was stolen because of the idiot hackers.  Those jackholes caused these problems for all of us.  Let's place the responsibility where it belongs.

Sony didn't know which games we all already had.  I had LBP already, but had never played inFamous, which I downloaded...and it is awesome.  I'm not excited about the others, but I'll have to pick one.

You are right, they didn't have to do anything but what they did do was kind of weak. Sorry, I just stated my opinion and you went to a dark place with your reply, this isn't usually my style butttttttttttttttttttt.  Get a job? Really? Dude, you have 1400 posts, guess what you need to get? a life.

We are talking digital media, Sony could lose money in FUTURE sales but it would not bankrupt them, I can't believe you even said that.

I can dig what you are saying, my biggest issues really was the movie selection. I guess because I try not to pay retail I forget to apply that value to the games. Also, I didn't think they would give out new releases, nor would I ask them to. Just don't make me feel like the poor kid, Sony sent me to school in some XJ900's that they bought me at PAY-LESS. Make me feel like I'm worth something as a customer, don't make me feel like an afterthought.

Thank you for your reply, I like that you gave your opinion without knocking mine.

Do you work for Sony? Seriously... It wasn't there fault that personal information was stolen but Sony's security was flawed and some blame does lay there. I don't blame them but I think that they should clean house in their security department; if you mess your job up you could lose it, if you mess your job up on a global scale then you probably should. So, when some repiers' say "Sony is to blame", there are individuals within Sony that should have to shoulder some of that blame.

It's Sony's fault for not giving our information the maximum security available. Instead they decided to slack off and look what happened. They said that they dramatically improved the security after the hacking. Why couldn't they have done that in the first place? It's funny how our old information was hacked again a week or so later and then after that another one of Sony's sites were hacked too. You'd think they would have learned. I saw it as an insult when they gave us decade old "on us movies".

"Free" for a year. Then we're on our own. OR we could choose to pay for the service for the rest of our lives. I was satisfied with the free games, but clearly they didn't put a lot of thought into it. What about those who already had those games. They should've given us enough funds to buy a maximum of 2 games, but nope; they were trying to cut their losses. Don't even get me started about the movies . They were just trying to cut their losses after having to revamp their security.

You get what you pay for. I'm satisfied with getting Infamous and Little Big Planet and the added two months to my already current Playstation Plus subscription. Sure, it wasn't the best. But I was compensated fairly.

1 year is better than nothing, and who cares about the movies, they never said they were giving us movies anyway, but threw that in, just because.  Again they didnt have to do that.  Sure Sony "COULD OF" had better security, and the twin towers "COULD OF" built more plane resistant buildings. Both were subject to "Terrorist" attack.  The only blame rests on those performing the crime.
