NowGamer: "Hacktivism is one of the worst made-up words I’ve ever read, but it is unfortunately one of the main words that keeps on popping into the ol’ noggin when thinking about Anonymous’ DDOS attack on the PlayStation site..."
now gamer suck DEEZZZZ NUTZ 4 agreein with them 4 interrupting the users of psn service...
I support neither side.. I would just like to play MotorStorm: Apocalypse's online MP as well as other online PS3 titles in peace. I am innocent, Every PS3/PSN user is innocent. Anonymous needs to understand that when they're going about their own little "war games" against Sony. That is all.
Finally an opinion article which isn't filled with flat out ignorance on the whole situation. Understandable that people here are angry at these groups for taking down PSN but you could literally grab some popcorn and a beer while you go through some of the replies and laugh at some of the crazily stupid replies. Personally, I loved the justice crusader ones the best.
just let us play our games... please! don't fight for me.. anon.
I hate having to turn on Anon like this. They just like mob action...regardless of who it's against. That and 360 fanboys. Lol.
In no way can i support anon for this. I finally got the day off from work to DL the Mass Effect 2 Arrival pack and i could not. When the PSN finally came back up it was basically time for bed for work early the next morning. Thanks to anon i now have to wait until next Monday (my next day off) to invest some time into the DLC. That is not cool, i am totally innocent here but i had to pay the price for it? Screw that, anon for me lost all credibility. You can't punish random people (millions of people) to prove your point. The last thing you want are these billion dollar companies lobbying corrupted politicians to pass very strict anti hacking/piracy/DRM laws, because in the end all this will lead to is more DRM. Companies have the right to protect their IP's that they invested millions/billions into. This will lead to more red tape for the end user, companies are not going to take this laying down. This event defines terrorism in the cyber sense, subjecting millions of non related innocent to get what you want is wrong in so many ways. Anon and Geo cannot possibly fight Sony now and expect to win without having the public on there side, the same public they just screwed. All anon did was turn the tide in Sony's favor, expect more people to support Sony on this fight from now on. And this articles make no god damn sense considering the title. Title should read "My Opinon on Anon vs Sony's PSN consumers."
i just think its ironic for these people are vindicating every person against them....."SEE I TOLD YOU SO!!" also if they really wanted to change something or really be effective... they shouldn't have said anything.
I swear these guys played WAAAAAY too much Assassin's Creed....
no its watching V for Vendetta too many times...
I played MvC3 online all day with no problems. =)
yeah anon isn't just making enemies of Sony, but the whole PSN community.
