Capcom: Sony Breach Could Cost Us Millions

GamesIndustry.biz points to postings on the Capcom Unity forums in which the company claims the PlayStation Network breach and outage could potentially cost it millions of dollars. In response to a post titled “How do you feel about the SONY hackers?” Capcom Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson said that he was ‘frustrated and upset’ as both a consumer and an executive and claims the company is losing significant amounts of money.

"[...] As an executive responsible for running a business, the resulting outage obviously costing us hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in revenue that were planned for within our budget,” he wrote. “These are funds we rely on to bring new games to market for our fans."

Svensson goes on to echo the refrain of many PSN users, noting that those responsible for the breach and the subsequent outage are not just punishing Sony, but also its users and other businesses.
