Mission Accomplished

by Steve Napierski to Comics

This comic is based on something that happened this week… Though for the life of me I can’t remember exactly what.

Different subject… What the hell Sony? First we learn that over ten million accounts for the Playstation Network were comprimised [1]. Then we find out that almost thirteen thousand credit cards were stolen from Sony Online Entertainment [2]. Next we discover that Sony knew about the Playstation Network attack six days before they reported it [3]. And do you really want to know what the kicker for all of this is? We’re not going to do a damn thing about it.

Seriously, we are so used to our information being passed around the internet that we feel this just sort of goes with the territory. The Playstation Network might lose some of it’s members, but people will still use it and still conduct online transactions just as they always have. WTF?

    Indeed, loved how some news agencies were misspelling Osama as Obama. But yeah this whole Sony ordeal is just like… well a big FU to their customers. Oh yeah we knew that all this stuff was stolen like a week ago, but yeah we ain’t going to do anything about it. Except maybe raise your rates to make up the losses we may or may not incur due to that.

    See, the problem with most people nowadays is their willingness to cry “foul!” to friends and family, but they never actually do anything about it. They feel as if they have done their part just be doing that.

    Sounds like the equivalent of being a Japanese schoolgirl on a subway train. Yeah you just got felt up something terrible, but that’s pretty much just business as usual, right?

    They knew the breach existed six days ago. They didn’t know what was accessed until sunday night, Easter Night. Still, only hearing about it the next day was annoying. And as for breaches themselves, if they had no clue what was taken, how could they tell you? Many, many, many companies get hacked on a daily basis and nothing of value is really taken most of the time. But it’s okay, running commentary when you fail to be even remotely educated on the topic seems to be a rising and disturbing trend in this country. Why should I expect better from gamers?

    Steve as a fellow gaming dinosaur, I am surprise this shocks you. The world is becoming true to Metal Gear Solids 2’s theory that the internet is releasing too much information. Oddly enough banks and governments are hack yearly if not monthly but are quietly done ad fixed without issue, but a game/ entertainment company takes a hell of heat when they get hacked. I know anything I say to that will make me sound like a ps fanboy or a Sony’s dickpuppet, but this is only LEGALLY their fault.
    I think if they wanted a real soultion they should have made two versions of PSN, one for OtherOS and one for the PS3 OS, but that would cost money and excuse for monthly and you know what the interweb will still complain. It’s what the first world does, expect conspiracies and demand more.
    Then again this is me thinking too much with my lack of Demon’s Soul black phantoms and White Knight Chronicles hehe ^_^ Take it as you will. Awaiting the flame…

    Looks like they need to get a SEAL team rappeling into Sony’s CEO’s mansion…

    It’s probably too late for it but have you checked Google today? Wouldn’t it’d be nice if you made a comic about it?? Strangely enough the first thing i thought when i saw it were the Mr Masters.

    I’ll still use PSN, but only with prepaid cards so I can avoid this sorta thing in the future. And I don’t game online anyways, so I’m not too worried about it.
