Sony is still facing problems concerning hackers:

QUOTE
Sony is now releasing customer data to hackers on a daily basis the company has suffered two additional hacks in short order.

Following on from its Sony BMG Greece leak, Sony Music Japan was subject to a successful SQL injection hack laying open several databases to all comers fortunately, it seems the databases did not contain much in the way of sensitive information.

The next hack was more serious a Canadian ecommerce site run by Sony Ericsson was hacked with the loss of all data to hackers. The database made public contained names, email addresses and password hashes, though the hacker responsible claims to be in possession of credit card data and phone numbers, amongst other information. The site was taken down by Sony Ericsson soon after.

As if all this were not bad enough, the Japanese government has apparently still not allowed PSN service to resume after having expressed concern about deficient security; Sony's May 25th date for Japanese PSN restoration came and went without restoration of service.

The spate of successful attacks can reasonably be attributed to lacklustre security on the part of Sony and its various group companies, but it certainly appears (not least from the gloating messages left by hackers to this effect) that the sustained interest in humiliating Sony is the direct result of its (to hackers at least) excessively aggressive pursuit of PS3 hackers.

Indeed, whatever losses were sustained to piracy on the PS3 have undoubtedly been dwarfed by the losses Sony has now sustained from hacking billions of dollars have been knocked from its market capitalisation, its brand lies in ruins, and it may face billions of dollars in litigation.

The main question now is how PSN customers will react after seeing the whole fiasco. In additon, the way with which other companies will proceed in relation to the subject is still an incognite...

You put a crack in a dam, and eventually it's going to burst. That's whats happened here. Too much information has been leaked, I think Sony is best just wiping the whole user database and starting anew. New security systems and measures. Things like that. This isn't very promising, and quite honestly I'm glad I got the Wii instead of the PS3 when I had the choice.

Customers (myself included) are now puzzled about how they will be able to purchase some games which can only be got through PSN. Indeed I was thinking to buy Dreamy Theater 2nd, whose release date is due to July 2011, but I do not know if I will be able to. I doubt SEGA will modify its project in order to create a physical version of the game...

I think SSF4: Arcade Edition will release a physical version, in case I need it in 2 weeks. Though mainly the addon was just an excuse to play the game again, if I have to wait on Yun/Yang/Evil Ryu/Oni Akuma, that's fine.

EDIT: Or I could get it on the PC, lol. Hope that's not the only physical version. Also note that the Mac version of the game is Street Fighter 2 (LAWL MACINTOSH GAMING JO-EK)
