How Sony Can Come Out on Top of the PSN Debacle

by Bill Hess on April 28, 2011


By now we’ve all been made aware that if we’ve kept our personal information on the PlayStation Network it’s likely been intercepted by hackers in some form or another.  Those that are expecting Sony to roll over a play dead at this point, likely have another thing coming.  There’s really no telling what Sony has in store with the re-release of the PSN, but here’s a few ways that we think Sony can come out on top in the PSN debacle of 2011.

Secure the Network – This goes without saying.  The reason first and foremost that the PSN is down at the moment is for Sony to improve upon the network from a security standpoint.  As the PS3 jailbreak became widespread over the past six months or so, as did the ways that hackers were manipulating the free online access of the PSN.  First they were able to log in directly to the network via normal procedures, at which point they proceeded to use hacks and cheats in our favorite online games ruining the experience for all.  After that threat was defeated, hackers began getting more crafty, utilizing circumvention methods to bypass verification servers and log on to play online games.  More recently, in a desperate attempt to play online, hackers and pirates began accessing the dev-PSN network with a custom firmware that turned the console into a debug unit.  This method is rumored to be the method which led to the point at which we stand now.

With a network that is free to access and newly secured, it could be the most viable option available to all gamers when considering it’s best feature…FREE.

Improve the Network Infastructure – Lets face facts here, there are some features of competing gaming networks that many wish were incorporated into the PSN but have been written off because of the zero dollar price tag associated with access to the network.  It has been rumored that the Sony is considering implementing changes other than security when the PSN relaunches in early May.  These changes include cross game chat and in-game video chat among what we can only assume are other inclusions that Sony is pondering at the moment.  It has been announced that PSN users can definitely expect a firmware upgrade when logging in for their first time back, but what the firmware upgrade will contain is still anyone’s guess.

By adding new features that weren’t there before, this could definitely help ease the pain of the whole privacy breach thing.

Compensate those that lost out quickly and painlessly – For those that pay subscription fees for Sony online products, it shouldn’t be a long and drawn out process for them to receive compensation for the downtime of the network.  Whatever is chosen to be done in this case, it should be implemented day one and without further hassle to the consumer.  Nothing could be worse than having to haggle with someone for compensation after they’ve made a mistake.

Show your regret and gratitude – There is definitely one thing that can make people forget about the past and thats by giving them free crap.  It doesn’t matter what that crap is, as long as its free, and provides them some kind of benefit.  Whether its a trial access to the PSN + , a free game, credit to the PlayStation Store, or something else,  gamers will forget all about the recent problems and down-time.

This goes hand in hand with improving the network.  Any network improvements made over the old PSN from a technology and features standpoint could easily be viewed in the same way as a gift to show gratitude for the downtime.

Show humility and provide clarity – I think there are plenty of people out there that would agree that Sony has done an excellent job of this already.  Since the severity of the breach has been revealed, Sony has provided clear and concise details about what occurred, and what they are doing to rectify the problems, along with realistic expectations about further downtime.

Going forward there are going to be people that want to be reassurred that the PlayStation Network is now secured, and regular updates could go along way in validating this as a truth to people so that they can get back to gaming on the network without worry.

For many, the only news that they needed to hear has already been released.  Even if Sony stood at the top of the tallest mountain in the world and screamed that your personal information is, was, and will always be secure, the way that this story has developed will leave a lasting impression on gamers that use the service.  How Sony handles this from here on out will determine if this is the beginning of the end, or just the end of the beginning for this great gaming community.

We’ll see how Sony handles the coming weeks with the re-release of the PlayStation Network.  What do you think they should do?  Sweep these problems under the rug and get back to business as usual?  In your eyes, does Sony owe you anything for the recent PSN outage?  Moreover, for the breach of your privacy?  How do you feel about getting back on the PlayStation Network if it was available right now?  Would you do so without hesitation?   We want to know.  Leave us a comment in the comments section below.

  • ethan

    i personally for now on will not us my debit/credit card to purchase stuff from psn store due to this happening, but yes as soon as it comes back on i will be all over it i need my socom 4 fix imediately

    • Elcido6

      Just FYI, your credit/debit info is vulnerable to hackers no matter where you use it online, unfortunately.

  • Psn user

    I dont care bout refunds or anything i just want an cross game chat when PSN is up again

  • Gazza

    I just want it back that’s all!

  • Allen

    @ PSN user

    I went ahead and gave you a thumbs up as I would like to see this features in PSN for the sole reason to shut 360 fanboys up.

    Me personally, I hate cross game chat.

    I use chat to work as a team, use tactics and skills to defeat the enemy with extream prejudice.

    How can you do that if you are too “busy” talking to your friend?

    I don’t know, I just like to go all hard core when I’m playing shooters. I want to pwn everyone and come out as the best of the best.

    That’s why I love the air superiority mode in Battlefield 1943. Anyone that plays the PS3 version will know the name…DieYoMoFo

    Also the standard game but everyone fights over the planes. I’m good at ground battle too but am truely best at piloting a fighter aircraft.

    Death from above!

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Blame don’t ? Get compensation for what? What did they do wrong? It’s not their fault they got hacked, the pentagon has been hacked in the passed for gods sake…. it happens, take any hacker and get a goal of something to hack in his head.. and it will be done, regardless of what it is or how “hack-proof it is” I feel they did good but shutting it down immediately, anything or anyone can be hacked at anytime.

    Why would they owe us ? It happens, your information that your fighting about would be the same information anyone could find in your Facebook, MySpace, forums etc or even in the trash outside your house. The only thing is like is ny gaming network back up, and to know they rebuilt what they had to and made it more secure so the same thing doesn’t happen anytime soon.

    • TheInfamousJew

      yes cause everyone on facebook has access to my credit card info. and how about they compensate me for the for the inability to play the games that I have paid for (battlefield1943, modern combat, free realms), online ONLY games.???

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Correction…” the only thing I would like is ny gaming network back up”

    Typing from phone is a pain sometimes

  • prone

    I would love to have better chat features, plus all im sayin if people see that psn has these features now I am willin to bet that half the xcox community would switch because psn is free and rightfully so I cant wait to get back online. thats my viewpoint correct me if im wrong Ps3 FTW

  • Corey

    Damn, I hope our credit card information isn’t going to be used by criminals – I’m sure that they can be caught if they do though. I am not going to have a grudge against Playstation. Hackers will always be able to learn new ways to crack systems. Hopefully, Playstation will be more diligent in security (that is all they can do and this is the fault of the hackers not Playstation) and that that will not result in them having to charge us for their network – since free online service is one of the biggest perks that make me prefer Playstation even though all my friends are on the Xbox. I must say, I would be stoked if they decided to hook us up with PSN download credit. This isn’t the first time I haven’t been able to get on PSN and it is frustrating. If they hooked us up with downloads we can look at these misfortunes in a positive light and it would just make Playstation stand out as extremely great in a corporate world that is constantly finding new ways to take far more than give.

  • gabe

    I think the additional psn upgrades will be great but I also think that most gamers just want their gaming back up. I still have not heard when the estimated time will be

  • Allen

    @ Gabe

    I was told 1 week 2 days ago. Should be back up on May the 3rd from what I heard.

    It’s funny how I can go for a while without playing online but as soon as I can’t..I have to have it!

    Anyways been playing some Counter Strike. It’s been a while but it’s still my favorite online shooter.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    My question is why should Plystation give us some download credit or free downloads, psn cards etc, its not their fault, I could see that if all this was them doing it to us… but they aren’t, they are trying to fix it for us and make it better, isn’t that enough for free online play and services ?

    We have more than just free online over xbox, I love my blue ray movies, just as much as ny online gaming :)

  • Michael

    People are acting like this can’t happen to the Xbox or Wii. IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE ONLINE. Even your banks. I have a Playstation 3 and love playing online, but there is other things to do besides play video games while this is going on. And come on it only been a little over a week that the PSN went down. The PSN is F-R-E-E free.

  • njb, I tell it like it is

    The 360 was hacked and Jail broke recently after its release same as the Wii & The DS. Now the PS3 has been hacked & Jail Broken

    It will always happen

  • Allen

    Exactly, everything gets hacked.

    PSN will be back in less than a week and will be better/stronger than ever.

    I can’t beleive how many people are whinning about it being down. Go play some of your epic single player games or go out side or better yet go get laid in as many dirty forms you desire.

    It’s not like we don’t have a million great single player games to play too.

  • Brian

    Ok i dont blame them for anything except the fact our credit card info was possibly stolen and it took them a week to tell us? Thats bs, and who has that info on facebook????

  • anonymous

    PSN is great and available 24 hours a day 355 days a year. /s

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    I meant your name birthday and city etc, if u don’t want your info to possible be taken…. don’t use online shopping or online ordering or bill pay online, that’s why psn also offers the network cards, for people that would rather not use a card, or simply don’t have one… agreed?

    They let u know as a warning, and from everything through all this I have truly yet to see ANY post where someone’s credit card was used from all this, they are just telling you as a precaution to up the security at your bank and keep an eye out for such a thing…. as a PRECAUTION is all. I’m not worried about it honestly, my credit card is in there… I haven’t cancelled it or anything,

    And to use a credit card u have to have the three digits on the back now a days, and that info wasn’t on there, so in all honesty… I think theyshut it off or down before it got into any of that. Plus it seems to be a ” server shutdown attack” and not someone trying to steal credit cards.

    So I say again they just tell us that as a precaution and nothing more… a just encased scenario.:)

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    I agree with the socom 4 fix ethan lol….

    But don’t agree with “not ever using my ccard again ” because of this. It was just a warning….
    If u honestly feel that way, cut it up and never use it again…. anywhere!

    I feel my info is still secure and nobody got to it, I’ve had ny ps3 from day one, and this is the first “scare” we have ever had, so I still have trust in the network….

    U gonna give up all those years of good ole free secure gaming, store, downloads, netflix, etc over one instance that really never charged your credit card in the first place? If it did, I would agree and not use my stuff on psn again, but it hasn’t, so I’m still comfy :):)

  • Allen

    Exactly, how many times have you heard of a local store you shop at having all card numbers stolen from their computers.

    Everyone doesn’t understand how often your card information is taken from places other than online.

    Besides, that’s why Sony is saying watch your statements. You have to notice someone used your card before you can report it, good practice for anyone.

  • http://whatup romanticman37

    HI I SPEAK FOR EVERYONE, THAT TO IMPROVE THE ONLINE SO IT CANT BE HACKED !! THE GAMES THAT WE ALL BYE IS ENOUGH TO SUPPORT PLAYSTATION , BUT I PRAY TO GOD THAT THE ONLINE IS FREE STILL FOR EVERYONE TO IN JOY AND TO LOOK PASS THIS MATTER THINGS HAPPEN . I NO ITS NOT FEAR AND MOST OF YALL ARE PISSED BUT ITS NOT PLAYSTATION FAULT I HEARD TO KINDS OF STORYS BUT I WANT IT ON AS MUCH AS YOU SO I HOPE THEY REALLY IMPROVE OUR NETWORK AND UPGRADES BUT IN THE MEAN TIME I AM GETTING TROPHIES AND YOU SHOULD TOO IT WILL BE BACK ON AS SOON AS YOU THINK . IT HAPPEN TO XBOX IT WAS DOWN FOR TWO WEEKS SO KEEP HOPE A LIVE GAMERS!

    • iPITTYtheFOOL

      you just hurt my head so down

    • anyone

      Please pick up a dictionary. “IN JOY” “I NO ITS NOT FEAR”

  • SKIN503

    I dont feel nor blame Sony for this at all, and glad to here that PSN will be back before BRINK’s release! Hang in there Sony and dont take no sh*t lol.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Romanticman,, like I’ve stated before… network is ” hackproof” givin enough time and dedicationfrom an elite hacker… ANYTHING can be hacked my friend , they are just making it MORE secure than before… so look at time frame, how many years has the psn been up, and this is the first major issue, so if they make it better, then it will much much longer before one is able to do it again bro.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Hseres a quoted update about the personal info and credit cards….

    ” All of the data was protected, and access was restricted both physically and through the perimeter and security of the network ”
    ” The entire credit card table was encrypted and we have no evidence that credit card data was taken”

    Just to help ease some of your minds. The breach was just barely on the perimeter, not deep enough in to obtain anything major.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Why compensate you? What if your internet was off? A tree knocked down your wires , u gonna sue the city for having the tree there and preventing you from playing your online games,

    What about my dcuo? Nope not a peep… ish happens. And its not their fault.

    And again BASIC info people can get from Facebook, name, high school, city, that’d enough to find who u are and take your identity.

    • John Doe

      This might come as a shock to you, but rumour has it that there are still people out there not using Facebook. Some of them even because they don’t want their personal information spread all over the internet.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Dont use your credit card, use a psn card.
    Don’t ever use your credit card online for anything. Read what was posted… not enough to get the info. Just perimeter, and they told u that as a just in case, so they can’t be sued for not informing you of the possibility

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Lol what pittythefool?

  • http://whatup romanticman37

    OK PEOPLE LETS FACE FACTS , WE CAN LIE TO OUR SELF BUT THE NETWORK WILL BE DOWN FOR A WHILE AM SORRY TO SAY , BUT LIKE I SAID WHEN THEY FIND THE PROBLEM THEY WILL FIX IT AND MAKE IT BETTER AS IT WAS BE FOR ” PLAYSTATION IS ASKING FOR YOUR TIME SO THEY CAN DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM . I HOPE THEY HAVE BETTER PROECTION CUZ FOR THE PEOPLE THAT USEING THERE CREDIT CARD THEY MIGHT WANNA BE AWARE !! PEOPLES TAKEING PEOPLE IDENTITY , SO PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND , THE PEOPLE IN JAPEN HAD SHUT DOWN THE NETWORK BECAUSE OF THE HACKERS IT WAS A OUTSIDE JOB , IT WAS A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT HACKED IN TO SONYS DATA , SONY SAIDS THEY ARE TO BLAME THERES NO WAY YOU CAN HOLD SONY FOR THIS CAUSE . GO TO THE BLOG WEB SITE OR YOU TUBE TO GET THE TRUE STORY

  • http://twitter.com/AndreyENG Andrey Coutinho

    This article inspired me to write my own suggestions and send them to Sony. Hopefully it will help them take the right actions. If you guys wanna check out the e-mail I sent to Sony, it’s hosted on Google Docs. The link is the following: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1FuD8MAqmZoJp2fbbZ2O

  • deadkennedy92

    shit i didn’t even know that much about this im honestly finding out about this now thank god i dont use a credit card just psn cards as for the online down is it really bugging people that much holy fuck relax about it how about instead of bitching about how u have to play single player just go outside

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    John doe.. this may come as a shock to you, but I said as an example the basic information people use on Facebook, MySpace or any other site of the sort can be found… not everyone’s!! BUT it could be found.. ie if one had this info on there and used one of the sites is all.

  • Frank

    I can choose to post my personal info on Facebook or not to post. SCE on the other hand, were obliged to keep it safe. Pathetic.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    And yet at any givin time peoples fb get hacked and spammed all the time, but no major deal about that. Nobody has or is using your credit card correct ?

    Believe me, is be pissed if they had and was using my info or credit card, id be gettin a lawyer, but they aren’t, and I’m pretty positive that my info is still secure, so I’m not worried. Why rant about them giving us a warning ?
    U freak out over every warning this way ?

    I say prepare for the worse, ie get a lawyer number ready to call, or call your bank as a possibility of it happening, I have.
    But hope for the best, ie nobody has my cc info, and the network will be back up soon and more secure than before.

    No reason to stress over could what may possibly be just a security breach on the perimeter of the network….which if it is, u gave yourself an ulcer over what ? A gaming network being down ?

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Obligated okay, I give you that my friend. But anytime u use your cc info online you risk this happening anywhere, or throw out some garbage with your name address etc in it.

    Give em credit, they are trying to fix the issue, and make it more secure, and are already facing the fines they will have to pay because of this, so don’t think they are getting away with that, they aren’t.

  • Anonymous

    I am very happy with the changes being implemented to the PSN in order to protect the users. You can’t blame Sony for being hacked b/c there is always going to be someone to push the envelope further. Hacking won’t end and as the years progress Hackers will only increase their skills and take things to greater measures. See what has happened to Sony as an example of how unsafe our personal information is.

  • George Hotz

    To be honest, I just can’t wait till my PSN is back! :) Accidents happen, but now they are making the PSN more secure than ever. It’s been almost 2 weeks without PSN, so just having it back soon would be great. But I would really like cross-game chat so you can talk with your friends who have varied game preferences. Also to shut up Xbox 360 fanboys.

  • http://whatup romanticman37

    IF YALL WAS A REAL PLAYSTATION FAN ,YALL SHOULD SHOW YALL SUPPORT AT THIS TIME , THE NETWORK WILL BE UP AND RUNNING AGAIN SHORTY PERHAPS WHEN PEOPLE OPEN THERE EYES THEY WILL LEARN THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THIS MESS , CRYING ABOUT IT NOT GOING TO GET US GAMMERS NO WHERE!! I NO ITS REALLY A DISAPPOINTMENT BUT YALL HANG IN THERE . IF PEOPLE STOP HACKING THE PLAYSTATION UNIT AND JUST PLAY THE GAME WE MIGHT BE ON NOW !! JUST WAIT ON TILL WE GET BACK ONLINE PEOPLE WILL BE TALKING FOR DAYS . WE GAMMERS MIGHT GET SOME STUFF FOR OUR MISS PLAYING TIME SO TRY NOT TO GET TO MAD , I WANNA PLAY NOW I STILL GOT MY INTERNET ON THE PLAYSTATION THIS OUTAGE IS KILLING US . DAM

  • Frank

    kingme, Have stock in Sony, don’t you? Who said I ‘m mad over this, I made a notion.

    Dp some research on protecting your data online, no I do not risk that. Besides, like I said phishing or password guessing ‘re ultimately down to me making a mistake.

    I’m not going to give them ‘credit’ because I see nothing good came out of all this yet, when they fix it, and the new security proves to be better then we’ll talk.

    Also, I’m not your friend.

  • Connor

    My ps3 blue ray dint work for 6 months then on wednesday last week i managed to fix it now this! i just wanna get back online for the first time in 6 months

  • corer

    i want the online to come back

  • Anonymous

    Romanticman37, I do not know whether to take what u said as ignorant or the worst grammar known to man. ( I know mine isn’t perfect, but damn all caps?) No one is crying. No one is unfaithful to Sony. Everyone merely has a different way of expressing their frustration over the network issues.(which includes your own little rant lol) From what Sony has stated, the developing companies that make the Pay-to-play games such as DCUO and ect. will be issuing a credit to their customers for the missed time during the outage. So if you are a DCUO player hit up their website and see what you get. We all hope for a swift return to our gaming. Stay positive and pro-active friends.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    Agreed not my friend, its a figure of speech sir.

    nothing good out of this ? They are mock g and upgrading the servers for better security. Is that not good ?

    Then well wait til it comes out.
    and I’m sorry your super frank and none of your data anywhere else can be found or used in the whole world except psn :p lol

  • Mitchell

    Sony’s stock is dropping every day PSN is not online, companies may not produce games on the PS Store (Microsoft marketplace is sounding better than PS Store since it exists ATM). I really don’t think Sony wants this, and is busting ass on getting the servers back up.

    Just what a good time, I finished for the summer ON the Thursday, and I start full time next week so I was kind of hoping I could get a few days of gaming done with a few friends but someone out there had to go and ruin it for everyone.

  • http://whatup romanticman37

    GOOD NEWS , SONY SAID THEY IMPROVE THE NETWORK A LITTLE MORE FOR US GAMMERS , AND LIKE I SAID THEY WHILE GIVE US STUFF FOR FREE FOR HANGING IN THERE , FOR OUR PAIN AND GIVE MORE FEEDBACK SO IT CAN GIVE THEM AN IDEA SO THIS PROBLEM WONT HAPPEN AGAIN SO THE NETWORK CAN RUN BETTER , YES PEOPLE HAVE THEY OWN OPININION ABOUT IT BUT SOME PLAYERS ARE VERY HURT , I AGREE KEEP A GOOD MIND SET ON THIS PROLEM ITS NOT TO MUCH LONGER, AM NOT SAYING IT SHOULDN’T OF HAPPEN BUT ITS WORTH THE WAIT CUZ ALL THE NEW PROGRAMS DATA WILL HELP US IN THE LONG RUN TO IMPROVE BETTER PLAY BY PLAY , IF THEY RUSH IT AND MAKE A MISTAKE YOU BE WAITTING LONGER ,ALL OF YOUR GOALS AND THROPIES ARE STILL THERE , THEY SAID IT ON THE PLAYSTATION BLOG FRIENDS OR NOT WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER IF YOU WANT TO BE ON MY FRIENDS LIST WRITE TO ME ABOUT IT.

  • noone@nowhere.com

    The only thing I really hate about it is not being able to connect to play single player games that require a connection – such as Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. This is a game with a single player format that does not require a connection from a game stand point like an mmo, but because of Capcom’s DRM. I for one will never buy another Capcom game until I know I can play the single player part of it offline without any DRM issues.

  • http://www.empir3.us klngme

    they had a conference today, psn will be back up this week. all psn members will be required to change their passwords. All psn members will receive 30days free of Plystation plus.
    the store will be back up within the month following. When the store returns members will receive free dlc… no word what that is yet.

    there will be “upgraded chat “.. so we assume that is the cross chat everyone is talking about.

    Imo, the free month of Plystation plus is no good if the store doesn’t come back up til the next month. But I’m just glad its going to be back up.

  • Anonymous

    First off Romanticman37, if you were a lawyer you would not disclose that information on a forum. If you are that is extremely unprofessional. Anyone could take that information considering you gave the location of where, and what happened and find out the specific name of the victim. Which is supposed to be held in confidence. I should know considering I am in law school. yes a paralegal would fix all grammar and spelling issues, however they can’t fix your lack of tact. Just drop it and give up the act. It isn’t even related to the topic by any means.

A new blog came out so please read that and you will get your answers there , sony said it will be on shortly i dont no what date yet but they could not give me that information yet. i called playstation headquarters myself and they got the best technicians around all they ask in return is some patience and you be rewarded 3 times over.. Talking trash and being rude is not going to make the playstation network come on faster . Yall can disagree but its true its been almost 3 weeks now .. Am trying to be the bigger man here let peace rain .. What ever information you know that i dont feel free to write about playstation .. Cause i get my information from the blog anyway it dont matter to me…
