Considering I'm likely one of them, and am definitely one of the ones affected by the PSN issues... yeah I absolutely reserve the right to laugh my ass off every time Sony gets kicked in the balls from here out. Just as I'll be rolling on the floor when these prick hackers end up in Federal PMITA prison.

Do what you can to protect your own interests from any fallout, then pull up a log and grab some marshmallows. This one will be burning for years down the line.

As for those of you who don't use Sony's services, I'd advise taking a good hard look at just how secure your own habits are. Never know who might get nailed next
