Sony said today it is investigating what caused PlayStation Network and its web domains to suffer from outages yesterday.
Sony to "Anonymous": We don't negotiate with cyber terrorists...
We are with Sony! If they dont like PS3 then get the fuck away to the competition or make your own console. Bunch of low life teens living in their Mom's basement with no friends
It looks like Sony ruffled some feathers for these hackers. It is nice to know that they are being pursued. I will donate all my money to Sony to help deliver the message that 99% of gamers think that hackers belong behind bars. If this only serves to bring a negative connotation to "homebrew" or "hacking" I will be happy.
I wouldn't donate a dime to Sony, PS3's a great console but common, I'm not about to just giving money away to a corporation. Cyber terrorists do suck.
ffs this is really p*ssing me off, I hope they get caught and owned soo bad lol they deserve it. They are just out for attention.
Good, whoever it was should be prosecuted to the maximum allowable penalty.
Sony fans Then - "Sony = BEST,hackers Scared" Sony fans Now - "This has gone too far blah blah blah" Get over it.
What these cyber tards aren't realizing is that they're going to get geo in deeper shit than what he's already in, and Sony isn't going to negotiate with them...These guys are fail all around.
what makes you think they have any real plans to negotiate. Sony may track them, but what will happen, nothing really, they could say there computer caught a virus and it simply started sending the attacks from there computer on its own.
@Nai Considering they published they were going to do this all over the internet I doubt that excuse will work.
You sure about that? Depending how good they are tbh and how well they've covered their tracks but imagine if they were big enough and good enough to take down PSN whenever they want within a certain timeframe? If they kept doing it eventually sony would have to give in to pressure and drop the geohot drama to save a backlash from their own fans. Ofcourse it's extremely unlikely it'll get to that stage but it certainly isn't an impossibility.
LOL! If something like that would happen, the customers wouldnt be mad at Sony, they would be mad at Anonymous, because by taking down PSN anony mouses are targeting the customers. They will get backlash from the PS3 users. This will make the case against geocunt in the courtyard very easy now for Sony, since the faggots also targeted some judges
They'd be mad at Anonymous the first 3 or so times but if it became a regular occurrence it won't take long for the blame to be shifted to sony for not dropping their case.
@Senden: I'd be mad at Sony FOR dropping the case. Those kids handicap people's experience with the services. But I guess YOU would be mad at someone who was a victim of some gang several times during a week, not at the gang itself.
Possible? It happened and we all witnessed it
I thought you were going to say it was sony that purposely took down their own website and service to use it in court.
I didn't witness it. I guess i blinked too long
you don't even have a ps3. what are YOU witnessing? lol
Probably his soft trying to DDoS Sony servers.
Sony, take those terrorists down!
Little boys that think they can do whatever. Can someone put them down already? They are as bad as a dog barking non stop for no reason. Plus already sick of hearing another site saying the same thing as another.
Sony seems to doing EVERYTHING this gen. I hope they catch these anon punks.
@cyber terrorists: Why all of you mom's little boys don't get a F**kn real job and stop crying and doing stupid things.
Maybe someone should let them know that if they want to use cell based hardware, they could just go buy a rackmount cell server and play with that.. everyone gets what they want..
wait till FBI is involvd in this shit
Sony's Motto We Are Sony We F***ed GeoHotz We F***ed Graf We Can F*** Anonymous Too We Are Multi- Billion Dollars Bi***es. :)
None of those court cases are finished yet
These cases were over before they even started. GeoHot lost already. Anonymous lost already. If all it takes is an attack by a group of hackers to bring down a big coporation like Sony, then the American government would be controlled by hackers and not the coporations. Look around, American government is still being controlled by the coporations. Good luck Anon. You battles have no effect. Arrow vs a Tank.
I hope something big happens to these companies soon, and I mean really big. I'm sick of being screwed out of my own money. Hell I can't even make a copy of something I own without making a agreement and then being called a pirate afterwards.
Without "these companies", you wouldn't have a games console.
or a computer
It's time you learnt that you've bought a Sony product and you're not allowed to modify their software. End of. It's sonys software. Don't like it? Hack another system. I am sick of hackers feeling they have the right to access anything and everything. This is sonys software, deal with it. They're only trying to protect their own property because guess what Einstein, if their software gets hacked it can be detrimental to Sony and could lead to piracy, fraud and all sorts of online mayhem. Stop being so righteous, you do not have the right to sonys software so stop whining, as if it's the worst crime in humanity. "oh Sony is so evil". They gave us the playstation 3 with some of the best games ever made on it. They give us online gaming for free. If you wanna see who the real criminals are, look no further then what anonypuss have just done. They even have to hide
I love the people who justify these actions. Sony takes Other OS from about a little more then a thousand people who used it and told some hackers not to break into their system and that automatically makes it okay to disrupt the other tens of millions of PS3 owners by doing this kind of $hit. And who suffers? Not Sony. They have hackers, laywers, contingency plans, billions of dollars, thousands of company buildings . They could keep this up forever. And we are caught in the middle with security updates, glitches, delays and PSN disruptions. And it's getting worse and worse with no end in site. You people are not helping us,you are not punishing Sony and you are not making things easier for us. Most of us just want to play our games in peace but you are ruining it for us.
And so it begins........................ again.
Seriously, you guys are obsessed with the word "terrorist". I do not condone piracy, but I bought my PS3, I did not RENT it to Sony. If you are being fragged on COD:Whatever, 1)You may be in denial about you sucking at the game. 2)You are ignorant and do not know how to correctly operate with a router. 3)There are people like you, 14yo lamers screwing your game. For the last fucking time, what you are calling "hackers", "terrorists" are just enabling linux and developing apps and emulators. I will never pirate a PS3 game, but I have the damn right to build a TOASTER out of my PS3 if I want to, and is none of your business, nor is it illegal.Stop riding on Sony's cock, you've played too much military FPS, children.
Are you retarded. That was a retorical question. Anyone can do whatever they like with their PS3. Just don't hack it and publish the master security key for the whole world to use. Disrupting PSN etc. is totaly unaceptable. Sony removed a feature that the majority never used, I tried it and found out it was useless for multimedia use and never used it again. These punk hackers aren't doing anyone any favor, most gamers hate their guts for screwing up our gaming experience. They are not enabling linux, the hacked custom fw doesn't even support other os.
War with *Call OF DUTY* and *Madden* for recycling the same garbage and putting a $60 price tag on it every year. War with Gamestop for selling used games and accesories for a $1 less than retail. War with EA for charging a extra $10 for buying a used game War with game devs of this generation hyping up a game that last under 4 hours and fucking sucks and they charge $60
Good thing I mostly stick with single-player stuff...
Hope they realize they could go to prison for a long time FBI Cyber Crime info. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us... I hope they get caught for there stupidity and if they think they can't,lol
It's not just Sony... apparently there was a huge attack on Bestbuy, JP Morgan, Airmiles, and other major companies. This stuff is getting out of hand :/
Sony to hackers: Bring it on! Hackers: Its on! Sony: Oh noes someone hacked us. Just what outcome were they expecting exactly?
