Just as long as Sony adequately compensates customers for not using due-care and due-diligence in the handing of PII and PCI...then I'm happy.

Fat chance. I don't think their idea of adequate compensation is in alignment with most of ours.

They have to do this of course , but they won't lose many customers. The PS3 is one of the best gaming systems around . Best Blu ray player as well. The disc are tough and hard to scratch.

IF Sony were wise, they would be mailing three free game vouchers for each customer with a PS3. That would be twelve games for me.

They would blame Osama but he's dead...

he is right

rumor not my post found elsewhere

Osama Bin Laden was a avid ps3 gamer. I used to hit him up all the time on Cod and Socom, apparently that was his daily practice for using a weapon. Unfortunately with a latest security breach on PSN, hackers were able to gain access to delicate information, like Osama's credit card information. The information was turned over to the government, and the FBI and CIA went on a manhunt. Osama being very frustrated with over a week without some sort of FPS practice over PSN, was therefore unable to successfully defend himself from the government raid. Reports indicate that Osama fired over 99 rounds hitting not a single target, a testament to how a week without practice can make anyone rusty. This is the inside scoop from me, a daily gamer with Osama, you heard it here first.

They can blame anyone they wish, but they remain ultimately responsible for the safekeeping of our information. Besides, it's the "law of the deepest pockets" and Sony has a few dollars in the bank. This security and privacy breach is going to cost Sony some serious money when all is said and done.

In the meantime here is the most recent "law of the deepest pockets" case and what it turned into
Dealpolitik: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Class Actions - Deal Journal - WSJ (http://blogs.wsj.com/deals/2011/03/24/dealpolitik-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly-of-class-actions/)

As part of a December 2010 settlement agreement, NVIDIA agreed to provide all owners of laptops containing a defective NVIDIA GPU with a laptop
of similar kind and value. In February, NVIDIA announced that a $279 single-core Compaq CQ56 would be provided as a replacement to all laptops ...

I'd postulate another law of class-action: unless you are the litigation lawyer (from either side) - you lose! Especially with the most "caring" companies like Sony...
