      Why does it matter for Sony? Maybe they should spend big money on building a better infrastructure instead.

      It's a matter of principle for Sony since their credibility has been irreparably damaged. If they can capture the hacker and make him pay it'll serve as an example. Unfortunately I don't see the logic in this thinking since internet law only applies to the little guy... See stuxnet for further information.

      For sure, since they have not been able to defend even their servers.

      OMG that would be funny!

      I don't know what Sony is trying to prove with going after hackers, again. They collectively must have serious learning disability issues. Clearly it seems they haven't yet had enough punishment if they're now offering bribes, or a bounty to find whoever did it. Sony, you have already poked the sleeping (Polar Bear, Grizzly, or Wolverine) with a stick. It has already mauled you, you really want to go there again? Yeesh, some people, or corporations (mainly their retarded management) just don't get it.

      They seriously, seriously DON'T GET IT! It's like they keep tripping on the exact same rock.

      TD, also... principles, and sony in the same sentence? DOES NOT COMPUTE! I also think this money is better put to use by hiring people who can actually improve the security of the network. LOL! before we were complaining about them having more lawyers than tech personnel, so what do they do? now they add bounty hunters to the mix.

      Henceforth the word Sony = (FACEPALM) EPIC FAIL!, or EPIC FAIL! (FACEPALM) is also acceptable.

      Well msanchez lets be fair here.. when jack tretton said he would give gamers $1200 for finding Playstation 3 consoles on shelves they found them... maybe it only works for everything.
