Sony responds to the U.S. House of RepresentativesSony has offered an olive branch to disgruntled gamers (who have been suffering withdrawal symptoms for the past two weeks, we might add, over the PlayStation Network outage), and have also explained itself concerning the security breach over at the PSN, and intend to take things one step further with Sony’s Kaz Hirai himself forwarding a message to the US Congress concerning the potential data theft of your personal information.

The tale does not differ too much, as Sony claims that all 77 million PSN and Qriocity accounts have had their information stolen, although the company is still in the dark concerning just which data have gone missing, and they too have no idea on whether credit card numbers have been compromised. That is not too reassuring at all, and with no face or organization behind the hack, how else are they going to placate the seething masses?

Let us hope that the four key principles which Sony subscribes to (and the are to act with care and caution, provide relevant information to the public when it has been verified, take responsibility for our obligations to our customers, and work with law enforcement authorities) will work out in their favor in the end. You changing bandwagons over to the Xbox Live platform?
