21 –year-old Natasha Maksimovic has filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Sony Japan, Sony USA, Sony Canada and Sony Subsidiaries for their handling of the security breach last month which allowed private and credit card information to be stolen from the Playstation Network (PSN) and Sony Online Entertainment (SOE).

Maksimovic said in an interview that “If you can’t trust a huge multi-national corporation like Sony to protect your private information, who can you trust?”

Sony’s handling of the breach, failing to immediately inform users of the breach and how they intended on handling it, as well as shutting down the network, has prompted Sony to offer free service and day-for-day compensation to their users.

Saying that “It appears to me that Sony focuses more on protecting its games than its PlayStation users,” Maksimovic’s lawsuit claims damages in excess of $1 billion and wants PSN and SOE customers to receive 2 years of credit card monitoring services and fraud insurance coverage.

The PSN/SOE breach is one of the largest recorded and the first ever in gaming network history. Sony continues to work with law enforcement regarding the circumstances of the intrusion. disclaimer: This article: Sony Facing $1 billion Canadian Lawsuit Over PlayStation Network Hack was posted on Thursday, May 5th, 2011 at 8:25 pm at and is filed under Fraud Lawsuits.
