“It’s now Monday, the week after Sony told us to expect some functionality to return to the PlayStation Network. Sadly, that has not happened: you can’t play your games online, make digital purchases, or download demos; the service remains completely dead. Sony is claiming that it’s still unpacking the extent of the attacks, and the industry has begun to try to put a dollar amount on the damages being suffered by the Japanese company.”

You can’t put a dollar amount on the damage that has been suffered to Sony’s reputation. that damage is unrepairable and is going to hurt sales of the PlayStation line for years to come.
You can put a dollar amount on the 125 million refunds they are going to have to issue for the month that PlayStation network subscribers had no service. And the 125 million insurance policies and credit monitoring policies they are going to have to buy their customers in case their identity gets stolen.
