Sony criticised over handling of hacking case

    Sony has admitted hackers breached its online community - the Playstation Network - which contains the details of 77 million user accounts.

    Sony is facing criticism over its delayed handling of the affair, because it did not tell the public until after it launched its new tablet computers in Japan a week later.
