Now we’re being told that terrorists love the PlayStation 4.
They use the voice chat on the PS4 because it's so difficult to track. That doesn't mean they play games too. That's a bit of a reach.
If thats the case then Sony should put the chat feature behind a paywall. ;) Imagine the look on their face once they're told they need to upgrade to a yearly subscription. Anyways I can't believe there are clowns on youtube wanting to boycott the ps4 due to it being linked to the recent terrorist attacks.
LOL_WUT?! Seriously? lol
Right. Not the paywall Idea but the whole boycotting the ps4 idea is stupid. If they do that they should boycott Xbox, ventrillo, team speak, skype...every chat service available. There was that report years ago that terrorist were using call of duty to train (makes sense why they suck so much) but nobody boycotted COD for that reason.
that´s ps plus
Exactly. Nice misleading story title though on the authors part.
Journalism like anything can be full of shit, and they do aim for cheap headline stories, that might have little or no relevance in life. Video Games are not the only victim here I am sure.
I read that the hacker group Anonymous took down a bunch of ISIS Twitter accounts due to this same issue.
Love the negative spin on all this but ultimately, isn't this a glowing review for both Sony and the PS brand? In the post Snowden leak era where seemingly on a weekly basis out privacy is stripped from us all in the name of "national security" I find it reassuring that PSN is considered private enough by the sort of people intelligence agencies are searching for.
Baddest comment i've heard came from a german analyst who claimed that terrorist could shoot words with bulletholes into walls to communicate. Made me laugh so hard but at the same moment i shed a tear. Just so sad that some people will believe that nonsense.
I remember when a friend of mine swore on his mother's grave that the PS3 would have a car engine in it. This was before it had come out. He's not the brightest guy.
Sad thing is we know he's dead wrong but old folks without a clue will feed on this type of bs. :/
Come on. I come to N4G to get away from this stupid shit.
Just because they are terrorists, doesn't mean that they aren't allowed to play games! What a stupid article!
The article simply stated what the terrorists used to communicate, it was not an indictment of gaming.
Lol not giving this a read but for the sake of a laugh. If "the terrorists" are playing in "our gaming communities" then we should just, you know, kill them like we do to every other player online? Everyone online is some form of monster to begin with, and at any given moment we are potentially playing with a slue of disgusting people, those who might have done horrible things in the past. You'll never see me ask someone about who they are, so I'll never know who they are, and as far as I care when I'm online, they are just an obstacle to overcome. It's online, it's a lawless land. If Mr. Terrorist wants to take a bullet for me in an fps match, thank you. If Mr. Terrorist thinks he can beat me in a race, go for it. If Mr. Terrorist is playing God of War because he wants to kill every god that isn't his...well probably a good game for them actually. End of the day, THIS IS A REDUNDANT TOPIC.
