Sony Dubs PSN Crash A "Really Good Time"

The Playstation Network crash fiasco is all but over, with Sony picking themselves back up and hoping to move forward. However, shrugging the whole debacle off isn't quite the best way of convincing your fans it won't happen again. Case in point, Sony's president of network entertainment, Tim Schaaff, who during an interview with GamesBeat dubbed PSNgate a "really good time."

"Great experience, really good time," he told GamesBeat. "Though I wouldn't like to do it again." Victims of a cyber-attack from an obviously disgruntled band of anti-Sony hackers, the PSN crash lasted nearly a month, with all services down and vital confidential data stolen. Sony have since resumed normal service, but it's proved to be a lasting blow in their efforts to usurp Microsoft from the online network throne.

"A determined hacker will get you," Schaaff explains. "the question is how you build your life so you’re able to cope with those things." It's still unclear who was responsible for the hack. Lulz Sec have been rumored, Anonymous, too; although Sony claim the crash came as a result of fending off another attack from the latter, leaving their defenses open and eventually breached.

What do you think, Dealspwners? Have Sony recovered from the PSN crash with good cheer? Or are they not taking this as seriously as they should? [GamesBeat]

The guy's made himself sound like a right ****, there.

Considering it was great and fun, if he eventually finds who breached their defences is he planning on thanking them? Paying them?

**** = Male hen... :P
