Games There's fail, there's epic fail, and then there's Sony. You may've thought it wasn't possible, but Sony has just outdone itself on the fail scale, forcing us to add yet another notch. During the congressional testimony this morning, Dr Gene Spafford of Purdue University revealed just how badly Sony managed its Playstation Network servers. It's... Bad.

This is not news if you ask me. Most if not all LARGE (and something that controlls 77MILLION accounts will be large) networks like this are way behind in software release.

Hurdles for upgrading are certified releases, man power, process, lack of testing, and the list goes on and on.

Does it make it right? well no but Sony isn't the only suffering from lack of formal upgrades.
