The lights are on
Sony continues to come under the microscope of government for its handling of the PSN/Sony Online security breach. Yesterday we reported that Sony Computer Entertainment chairman Kaz Hirai submitted -- in lieu of attending -- an eight-page document to the Congressional subcommittee on Manufacturing, Commerce, and Trade on the incident.
Today, it appears that the State of New York has questions for Sony. Bloomberg reports that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has issued a subpoena for Sony over the PSN and SOE hacking scandal. The probe reportedly seeks information on the security breaches and "representations made to customers."
Sony's Patrick Seybold said, “We will review and respond to this request and will continue to work with law enforcement authorities as they investigate the criminal attack on our networks.”
The matter is also being investigated by the San Diego office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations. Sony itself has hired three private security firms to aid in the investigation

nice updates but it doesnt get me any closer 2 any form of PSN today than two weeks ago. maybe itll be on tomorrow maybe not im leaning towards not. ive been very patient as others have but ppl like me have paid 4 DLC or whatever it gets frustrating. i know i didnt get the PS plus but ive paid 4 something . it just would be nice to play online with friends again im just saying
Its only going to get worst. Im sure XBL and its affiliates are intensifying its security networks. No company needs a multi billion dollar network intrusion breach.
Shove a jar up my ass and call Sagat, this is ***! Sad that we can't do a *** thing about these greedy ass lawyers. Sigh...
i just hope dc universe reinbursts my account
It is official... The smell of money is in the air. Good luck Sony. As weird as it is to say, I'll be praying for the sake of your company... other companies... and the future of our nation that you endure.
i really hope you guys catch this SOB!
i dont think its so much people bent on Sony's destruction as it is people wanting to make Sony fully accountable for their actions
LEAVE SONY ALONEEE! ;-;
oh wow! Sony can't catch a break =(
