For the guys who were actually just going the the DDoS yeah, 10 years seems kind of harsh. The malicious motherfuckers who sought to do actual damage, by stealing peoples digital pedigree is another story. Could careless what kind of repercussions they are looking at. Considering sony already has a multi-billion dollar class action lawsuit against them because of this mess, and are being investigated by I think its up to three separate governments as well. One would imagine they are looking to make heads roll, and rightfully so imo.
