During the May and June 2011, Sony was under hacking attacks which forced the company to take the network down for 24 days. Hackers were able to break into the PlayStation Network, and steal sensitive information on more than 100 million users. According to Sony’s network entertainment president Tim Schaaff, PlayStation Network downtime can be characterized as:
“Great experience, really good time. Though I wouldn’t like to do it again.”
Probably, it was a great challenge for both hackers and Sony programmers, but as one of the users whose information were stolen, I can’t agree with this statement.
