Sony warns users of data loss from PlayStation network hack

Sharon Gaudin | April 26, 2011
With network down 6 days and counting, Sony admits security breach.

"This incident is a huge blow to the trust between customers and Sony," he noted. "If hackers have accessed personal info and credit card data, it could cripple Sony's online gaming business. And it could have a very negative impact on their video game console business overall. If enough users perceive that Sony's network can't be trusted, they'll flee."

That, he added, could hurt Sony's entire gaming platform.
