Capcom - PSN down time costing us 'hundreds of thousands'
With the PSN being down following the hacking of the service is apparently costing Capcom "hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in revenue" according to Christian Svensson, senior vice president at the publisher. Christian was asked on the Capcom Unity blog what he thought of the hackers responsible for the PSN outage. "I'm frustrated and upset by it for a number of reasons," he wrote. "As a consumer, I also play games online on PS3, which I can't do... and likely my personal information is also compromised. Secondly I like to buy things in the PlayStation Store and that I can't do right now. Sony also stated today that the PSN might not be fully up and running again until May 31, which means it would be six weeks after it was taken offline. Sony is reportedly considering offering rewards for help in its hunt for the hackers responsible for the PSN security breach last month. I wonder what the rewards would be?
