You know, that's a fair question. I like a lot of the downloadable content and it's nice (for me) to share trophies and the like on social networks.

Would I give that all up and just play straight from the disc? Probably not. I have created a new email just for services like this so at least I can corral the problem a little better.

PSN was back up this weekend and then this.

Today, they had this.

Sony's having the WORST online saga I've ever seen. I hope the users of the world don't forget this and let it blow over. I'd like to see gov't make companies like Sony keep our info more secure. However, I'm sure we'll still have those stupid cases where some guy from the insurance company carries all client info on his laptop and then it's stolen from their car. (Which happened to my company w/our medical insurance provider.)

Sony was directly targeted because of their actions. Unfortunately I fear we'd see the same results if many of the other large companies were targeted who are not used to continual attacks. Microsoft, Google, and some other high profile places are used to continually being probed, so they are more on their toes. As sad as it is, unless threatened many companies do little to maintain the security of their Internet facing resources.
