Or, Sony is just purging any accounts that people don't show up to fix their passwords on.

That was what I figured last time it happened. What better way to purge old, inactive accounts than to claim a breach?

Remember when Photobucket just randomly eliminated all or almost all of its online image database from being publicly accessible, claiming some reason or another?

Storage costs money. Costs can be reduced by staging a "disaster" or "attack" and *poof* storage costs plummet.

I don't know what really happened, or if anything really happened. But, if something happens that ends up as a benefit to Sony, with no cost to Sony, legally or otherwise, then it makes me wonder.
