Poll: A quarter plan to switch to Xbox after PSN hack

79% of respondents think Sony should do more to apologise

A PC Advisor poll of 395 visitors to the site found that an overwhelming majority (79 percent) think Sony should have done more to apologise for the recent outage and potential hack affecting its PSN online gaming network.

We asked: 'Is Sony doing enough to apologise for the PSN outage?' About one in five (21 percent) reckoned it was, with 12 percent answering 'Yes, the compensation is about right' and 9 percent plumping for 'Yes - in fact I think the compensation package is excessive'.

But far more felt the 'apology' package was insufficient. Another one in five (21 percent) went for the mild 'I reckon Sony could probably do a bit more', but 32 percent answered 'No - Sony's let everyone down and needs to do much more'.

The most dramatic backlash of all came from the quarter of voters (26 percent) who ticked 'Forget it, Sony - I'm switching to Xbox!'

Based on 395 votes, May 2011. View the poll as a pie chart, or have your say in PC Advisor's forums.
