Blumenthal Praises Sony's Efforts to Answer Questions on PSN

May 10, 2011 -

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT, and the man who once railed against "Beer Pong as Connecticut's Attorney General) said in a statement that Sony's response to the security breach and service disruption on PlayStation Network and Station.com "could serve as a model for other companies facing similar criminal hacking."

Blumenthal also praised Sony's promise to offer a year of identity theft protection to PSN users as a "strong first step toward protecting millions of consumers whose personal and financial information has been compromised."

"While I continue to believe that Sony should have warned users earlier, I am pleased they are providing protective measures including an insurance policy to cover identity theft harms to consumers within a 12-month window -- but I would hope Sony would extend coverage over a longer time on a case-by-case basis if necessary," said the Senator.

Blumenthal and the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, sent letters to Sony recently demanding answers in the wake of the breach, and applauded the company's efforts in responding to congressional inquiries.

So Mr. Blumenthal.... I guess the check is already in the mail from Sony? Good for you.

Again, let's be reminded that Xbox LIVE has been hacked into several times, and Microsoft didn't tell anybody. I'd rather take Sony's example of telling us late than Microsoft's example of telling us never.

Right, I'd rather a company have fears my credit cards might be stolen and not tell me for a week.

 

Next they'll say that BP is a model for disaster control.

Mattsworknamealso, in MGR, on higher levels, button mashing will get you reckt, you have to master parry to even have a prayer05/24/2015 - 8:52pm
MattsworknameI kinda would like a bit more variety in the combat, as it feels a bit to stiff and slow for me. Especailly after other games ive played05/24/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkThere's... no button mashing in DA:I. However, neither is DA:I's combat perfect. I, for one, detest the active talent max limit of 8.05/24/2015 - 8:21pm
MattsworknameDa I combat is fun, a bit stiff but fun, but I still say the best pure combat engine in any game was Metal gear rising.05/24/2015 - 7:15pm
ZippyDSMleeWhen DA gets a control system like DA:O I'll brother to want to paly it, I frown on button mashing RPGs not made by bethseda...05/24/2015 - 5:59pm

Goth_SkunkThe game is 75% sidequests, 25% story. And most of those sidequests are only vaguely related to the main story at all, having very little consequence to the plot at large.05/24/2015 - 1:12pm
Goth_SkunkI'm such a huge BioWare fan that I played through my first playthrough of DA:I without complaint, but on my second time through I certainly took notice of just how much side-quest material there was. It's probably my greatest criticism of the game.05/24/2015 - 1:10pm
ZippyDSMleeI need one of my 70 games to play....mmmmmmmm05/24/2015 - 9:57am

Goth_SkunkPlaying a third and probably final playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Once that's done, I'll move on to AC: Unity, most likely, then get caught up on A-list games I have yet to play, like Murdered: Soul Suspect and Shadows of Mordor.05/23/2015 - 6:33pm
MattsworknameIf you own a vita and like monster hunter, but dont like the bs filler that goes with it. Try tokiden kiwmai05/23/2015 - 6:11pm
Matthew Wilsonaparently their servers got crushed, but I dont see the game selling well. Nintendo fans tend not to be fans of competitive fps05/23/2015 - 5:48pm
