Capcom: PSN outage could cost us millions

"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. These are funds we rely on to bring new games to market for our fans."

That's the stark admission from Capcom's senior VP Christian Svensson, who becomes the highest profile exec to speak out so strongly against Sony and the collapse of PSN.

"I'm frustrated and upset by it for a number of reasons," he added in a post on the Capcom-Unity forum.

"As a consumer, I also play games online on PS3, which I can't do... and likely my personal information is also compromised. Secondly I like to buy things in the PlayStation store and that I can't do right now.

"In short, the hackers appear to be trying to 'punish' Sony for some perceived injustice, and they've been effective in that I suppose. But they're also punishing millions of other consumers and businesses which makes it impossible to be sympathetic to their 'cause'."
