Sony now saying there was no leak

Written by David Stellmack

Disclaims any responsibility for breach
Sony is now going on the offensive to say that actually there was not a PlayStation Network data breach and no customer information was compromised. This was a total about-face from what we heard yesterday and what our sources continue to tell us as the investigation continues.

While a number of lawsuits are mounting in a number of countries, it would seem that Sony is also making it known that their terms and conditions for use of the PlayStation Network absolve them of any responsibility for potential data theft. Yes, that’s right:  Sony’s terms and conditions for use of the PlayStation Network state that Sony is not liable for loss of data or unauthorized access to your data. We will not bore you with all of the other specifics, but needless to say, this isn’t going to fly very well with PSN users.

It is difficult to say what is going to happen next and what exactly happened. What we do know for sure is that PSN is still down and we have mixed messages as to what transpired. We suspect that Sony will have to be clear on what has occurred at some point, but don’t expect that to happen soon. In fact, we suspect that it could be long after the service returns before we know the entire story. In the meantime, we continue to hear that it could be well into late next week before service is restored. It sucks to be a PS3 owner and want to play online right now.

Wow. I guess that class action lawsuit got them moving. It's one thing to say that there was a leak to begin with, but to take it back? haha..I can tell how much regard they have for their user base.

Update - this video at least made me laugh about it haha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwdO4W1QQ_I

Got an email from Sony saying that my data may be at risk. I noted there was no apology or anything given in there email, considering there responsible for keeping peoples data safe, this is a disgrace imo. I sold my PS3 a while back becausce was dissapointed how much worse games looked compared to the Xbox 360. I wish id never bought one at all now. Thanks Sony for not protecting peoples data, good job! My next console will be an Xbox aswell. Or maybe a Wii 2 ;-)

Extract from the email Sony sent me. "

"Valued PlayStation Network/Qriocity Customer:

We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011, certain PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account information was compromised in connection with an illegal and unauthorized intrusion into our network. In response to this intrusion"...

It goes on to state the steps there taking to fix it..

Now there denying it, what a load of bs!

Remember the good old days when you just popped in your favorite console game and just played? No updates,terms and conditions and identity theft. Just you and some buddies playing twisted metal 2. You know... having fun.

Very true, remember the Snes and then the N64, those were the days haha

Ah well my PC is still my favorite, if some pikey did manage to use my data or bank through this PSN s**t, rest assured I would get my money back!!

The old days were the best, better than sitting in a dark room on your own talking down a static mic, N64 with it's 4 controller ports playing Mario Kart!

I'm still AMAZED at how STUPID big companies ( corporations )like Sony think that people are just stupid. I mean really ? In The year 2011 are people really going to believe whatever these Corporations tell us ?
Sony should be ashamed , they should come clean ,take the loss and at least save face so that future gamers that still want to buy Sony will know that at least the Company cares. Instead they are treating there gamers(customer s) like Idiots ,clowns, sheep. I thought about buying a PS3 long while back to use as a TV streaming device, but the FORCED rule that Sony put in place that I HAD to join the PS3 network killed that purchase for me. I'm glad i never bought it.
Man I am so happy I am a PC Gamer. :-)

First off... SONY LIED! Second, whoever gives their credit card information to a video game company is a fool. Sony has those $20-$50 scratch off cards that are avialable where there games are sold. I use nothing else. MMO companies ask for this information on the PC all of the time! If a game or company doesn't offer those cards, then don't buy the game!
