Now, do you think an hacker with a nickname, who live his days borderline to the next Sony' sue, will take his seat instead of someone with 15 years of career specialized in security? Hackers are trash, who deserve to be sued and if possible stay locked in jail forever. Surely not called on his mobile asking to join the security division.
This is Japan. i have difficulties to remember a japanese company who hired a well know hacker giving him a security position. Can you help me?
If happened, there is a quite serious reason, and this "hacker" is absolutely a diamond, someone who is 10 step over the human race.
So, don't be surprised if the only good thing Sony is good to do, is call a lawyer and sue all ps3 devs.
Do you know a different story?
In Japan, usually, if you want to gain a special work position, like security director of Sony ps3 Japan division, you have to STUDY for years, gain a proper degree (master+PhD if possible), make a long security and programmer career, all documented, a blank criminal record, a friend "pushing" your position, why not, but useless if you are just an idiot.
