The legal Sturm und Drang caused by the PlayStation Network hacking fiasco refuses to end. Sony insurance mavens at Zurich American disclosed information pointing out a total of 55 class-action filings against PSN, while maneuvering out of the zone of responsibility to cover Sony’s rising legal costs. Based on the existing deal between Zurich and Sony, there isn’t much finagling to do, as hacks weren’t covered in the original insurance plan.
With no word from Sony, it would seem that Zurich American will easily avoid having to pony up any money. It was in the agreement after all. Now the countdown to Sony’s possible extinction begins, as the sheer number of suits against them could spell easy disaster. Could this be what the hackers wanted all along? Nah.
