IMHO, the "sell out" to franchises were needed to attract the attention of the kids. And it is a great idea, because at first the kids do have to follow the instructions, sorta. But after that, they hopefully start experimenting, building bigger, and more complex structures and games.

Lego were in trouble, the franchises did indeed help save the company.

Some people have pointed out that this hacker claim may be fraud. If true, how can you claim "Sony still cannot get it right" ?

Sony screwed up, and probably spent millions hardening their security, and will have to continue to do so. Time will tell if they have done enough. Bit if this is an invalid claim, and Sony weren't hacked, how did they get it wrong?
