The PSN was hacked. Then Sony Online Entertainment. Then Sony Thailand's site, Sony's internet provider So-Net, Sony Music Indonesia, Sony Music Greece, Sony Ericsson's Eshop and Sony BMG Japan. But Sony's banking and insurance arms? They're not worried.

According to Sony Financial Holdings, their systems are different from the ones that were hacked. A spokesperson told Asahi, "We are not affected (by the attacks) because we manage our networks with highly safe systems developed specifically for financial services."

Isn't this inviting trouble, and wasn't the PlayStation 3 supposed to be unhackable?

DISCUSSION

Sony needs to stop being so freaking arrognt, they're just inviting the challenge, begging for it actually.

I've made plenty of PSN purchases, but I won't be sticking my credit card on their services anytime soon, if ever again.. Digital distribution won't kill retail because of these hackjobs, even if it only serves to offer us points cards.
