The news just gets worse and worse the more Sony reveals... They might as well have just gave us the whole story at the start.
Now they've created a ton of drama for themselves. It's even on national news networks now...
Sony's gonna have alot of work to do to win back my confidence. Back to the 360.
Sh*t just got serious, yo.
PSN will get back on track, but not as soon as we hope.
I wish them the best.
