Capcom Exec: Sony Breach Cost Us Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars

Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson has voiced his opinion over Sony’s massive security breach on the Capcom forums.

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

Capcom has a storefront that offers users the option to purchase extra game content on the PlayStation Network. Svenesson clarified in another post and added that he — and perhaps Capcom, too — is more frustrated with the hackers than with Sony, which he views as the victim.
