"SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2011 - Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) announced today that restoration of its game services will begin today. The phased restoration will include the return of nearly all of SOE's portfolio of online games, the reinstatement of SOE's game forums and websites, and added functionality to require players to reset their passwords."
I believe that media and government are going to be faking a lot more cyber attacks over the next couple years...this will lead to regulations on the internet. The current American and Canadian administrations have been calling for a tiered internet that would behave much like cable television. Shaw cable where I live in British Columbia has already forced it's customers into a useage based rate for an ISP. The monthly internet fees have doubled.
What better way to convince the next generation of kids to agree to internet regulations than to take their video games away from them now. While some may think i am out there, I base this on my understanding of Wuunt psychology and the Hegelian system of politics as well as the accumulation of reading various articles and watching current politics.
I listen to financial radio and watch stock markets daily. Already it is being suggested that government(s) will use this to help push for regulations...they will say it is a threat to the fragile economic recovery...once the servers are back up, they will announce that Sony has lost billions of dollars. That we need to protect ourselves and our economy.
Eyes and ears open.

Well I cannot prove him wrong, and I don't have enough insight to deem him right.
