Obvious Cat Strikes Again: Sony Hit With Class Action Suit Over PSN Security Breach

By Chad Awkerman

April 27, 2011

We saw it coming from a mile away. Someone finally got around to filing a class action suit against Sony for all this PlayStation Network nonsense. The suit was filed in California (again, no surprise) by the Rothken Law Firm. They’re claiming that Sony “failed to take reasonable care” to keep your personal data safe, and is seeking some hefty compensation for PSN users of all varieties.

I’m not entirely sure what “reasonable care” would involve, and it isn’t stated in the suit, as far as I can tell. It seems like one of those vague legal terms to me, but I’m just a simple gamer who wants to play his games on the PSN like he should be able to. How about you?

The world is still waiting to see exactly what Sony is going to do to compensate PlayStation Network account holders, PSN+ subscribers and subscribers to their various MMOs and other services that rely on the PlayStation Network. Let’s hope they don’t get even more stupid on us.
