Sony saved by the press

Reports warned security staff of another hack
A report that hackers were planning to take down more services in Sony's empire of the weekend were stuffed up when the news of the plan hit the press.

Apparently Sony secured the servers this group claims it had access to, shutting off any avenues for another attack.
One  of the members in the Internet Relay Chat channel the group uses said that Sony saw an article because the last server that he could access was offline and probably had been patched.

Reports that a group of hackers believed to be involved in the intrusion on PlayStation Network was planning yet another attack on Sony, started to surface late last week. The target was an unspecified company Web site, with the goal of posting any information they could find somewhere online.

The attacks were made in retaliation for its handling of the PlayStation Network breach.
