Microsoft Breaks Silence On PSN Hacks, Says "It’s Very Damaging"

Microsoft Corp. does not wish to see anyone going through as much pain as Sony did during the infamous PSN hack-attacks in last April, Dennis Durkin, the chief operating officer of the company said.

According to Mr. Durkin, that was the reason why his company has refrained from making any comment on the issue so far.

The COO made these revelations during an interview with the Industry Gamers (opens in new tab).

He also shed fair bit of light over Microsoft’s point of view regarding the recent attack on Sony’s PlayStation and PC Gaming Networks, as well as its effect on the industry as a whole.

"It's bad for the industry that this has happened to Sony. It's very, very bad. It's very damaging," he said.

“So we don't wish that upon anybody and you've seen we've been actually pretty quiet on the subject because we don't want to appear to even be looking to be taking advantage of somebody else's situation like that. That's just not in our DNA," the COO added.

Meanwhile, Sony is still trying every possible way to win back the trusts of its users, whose loyalty for the company underwent a massive blow following the widespread attack on PSN and PC Gaming Network that ended up affecting over 100 millions of its users.
