As of this writing the PlayStation Network (PSN) has been offline for nearly a month. It was taken offline due to a massive security breach that was found to extend into Sony Online Entertainment's (SOE) databases as well. The end result is that nearly 100 million detailed user accounts were absconded with by hackers.

Bad times for Sony. Much worse for their users who now have to worry about identity theft.

I have questions. So many questions...
So, how badly will this affect the Playstation 3? Is this the death kneel for Everquest (run by SOE)? Is DC Universe now more-or-less stillborn? How badly have developers who wrote for the PSN suffered due to this downtime? Will there be a migration away from the PS3 to Xbox360 and PC gaming? Will the threat of identity theft be sufficient to cool gamer to other digital distribution services, such as Steam? How long until the rash on my ass goes away? Will the popularity of single-player online DRM take a hit due to the extended downtime of PSN? Is the Playstation 4 now doomed? Ignoring the Playstation users, how will this event influence the normal personal computer gaming scene?

How may other crappers got their personal data pwnzorized due to this attack?
