We thought it usually took years, maybe even decades for war veterans to start performing reenactments of their famous battles. Apparently things move along a lot faster in this day and age and Sony is more than ready to relive its darkest hour, as well as risk reminding their customer base of that time they almost had their credit card number stolen.
