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.

It's Sony's priorities, a company vastly more interested in controlling customers than protecting them.

Sony's attitude - Patch the web server, run a proper firewall, why bother that's not important. Someone wants to install another OS on their Playstation, or copy a CD - Call in the IT team, pour in the cash, call in the lawyers this is serious.
