After all of the recent excitement, it’s no surprise that the world of gaming has taken a backseat. While current international events are indeed important, the show must go on.
With tens of millions (77 million, to be precise) of PSN accounts compromised, a lot of people have anxiously been looking to Sony for some reassuring words. Sadly, there hasn’t been much. And while interrupted entertainment is a tragedy, the security of the people’s money is not to be trifled with. Or so Congress says…or at least implies.
The New York Times recently obtained a copy of a letter, written by the Subcommittee of Manufacturing, Commerce and Trade, that was sent to Sony executive, Kaz Hirai. In said letter, Hirai was asked a variety of questions concerning the security of account holders’ information. The letter (which can be read here) was sent last week with a “request” for answers no later than May 6th. That means that, hopefully, we will have a better grasp on the situation by the week’s end.
