From Sony, with love.

Kazuo Hirai along with a string of Sony executives have already expressed their apologies last week, and now the Sony President – Howard Stringer – himself has released his letter of apologies through the PlayStation blog.

It may not be the end of the world yet, but in Sony’s own realm, it may very well be. The company has recently admitted that PSN (PlayStation Network) has been hacked like there was no tomorrow, and member’s personal information may have been compromised after days since the service has been offline.

You name it, the hackers may have gotten it. Even if Sony has elaborated that credit card data has not been compromised, still information ranging from a member’s name, billing addresses, and even PSN login names and passwords have been breached. And it looks like Sony’s shrinking into embarrassment with all the mess that’s going on.
