Studio expects a 5-10 per cent drop in business even after service comes back online
And Sony has lost even more because of this.
True but Sony can afford a hit like this while a small companies cant. Its not Sony's fault but I hope Sony is looking into how this is effecting those small companies and how they can help them.
All hackers do is cause problems for everybody, they are against all things good in this industry. I really want to see someone come out and support them after all that went down...
Your forgetting that there are two types of hackers: White hats that help the NSA catch bad guys Black hats- the bad guys Learn the difference. As far as this fiasco is concerned, I don't condone the actions of ANYONE who ruins my gaming experience over something petty. However, I don't condone a lot of Sony's decisions this past month either. In the beginning of April, Anonymous threatened to hack Sony's infastructure(Threat #1). THEN, they even went as far as to bring down NOT ONLY Sony.com, but MULTIPLE Sony sites for a while(Threat #2). THEN Sony, a multi-BILLION dollar company allows a group of teens living in their mothers basements to hack PSN a SECOND time after they did a DDOS attack on April 4th on the same system(Threat #3) THREE serious hack threats in ONE month..and PSN STILL gets hacked Is it just me, or is that just balls out ridiculous?
It is ridiculous, but one thing your example have in common are hackers, there was no way in hell DOS attack would make Sony beef up their security. A dosa is different than a hack of this magnitude. Also the entire world knows by now that anon would not have done such a thing as far reaching as this, they care more about being seen in good light than to go out and bring down the PSN and steal gamers info. So dont forget who did this, the point is some of you hacker supports need to stop spinning this around, case in point, i dont see any hacker coming out and saying this was wrong and that they will help Sony and gamers out and maybe help catch the people that did this. At least point in the right direction. So with that i say they are all the same, all malicious dickheads. I mean where is anon and geohotz with there "fighting for your rights" BS??? Now we need them on our side and where are they? This proves that hackers (ALL OF THEM) are all full of shit and that they are against the gamers and in this case developers interest.
"I mean where is anon and geohotz with there "fighting for your rights" BS??? Now we need them on our side and where are they?" LMAO, why in the hell would Geohot attempt to help a company who took him to court? "This proves that hackers (ALL OF THEM) are all full of shit and that they are against the gamers and in this case developers interest.' So because hackers aren't trying to help gamers, that means they're AGAINST gamers? I guess since Microsoft isn't helping Sony find the hackers that did this, there against gamers too. Ur point makes no sense. DUDE, don't you know that Sony probably has a team of HACKERS(the ones that are "full of shit") trying to figure out whats going on as we speak? C'mon bro.
@Logicwins use your brain for 1 second, if i made no sense then get your mom to read what i wrote to you out loud, maybe that will help. And im not your bro.
^^Woah, anger issues?
Anger, what name so? More like sick, cynical, raging lunatic, you got a problem with that?
Are they saying this becaue they couldn't sale the product through psn or because they need to pay for the hold of the release??
We all lost
Im not supporting the hackers or sony... it just sucks we have to go through it.
I have a Feeling Sony will start Charging a flat Fee for PSN after this... That way if this Happens Again the hackers will be hurting the Gamers not Sony...
That's the dumbest thing I've read today.
lol jack wont let sony do that.
The 360 fanboy that i have been trying to contain deep inside has finally broken free. With that said... "HA HA"
Stay strong and learn to control that fanboy inside of you. You have got to get a grip and control it before it is to late....
If the hackers stole all this info and PSN was still on, would this honestly be as big a deal? Its all fishy to me.
I don't even own a PSs,I own a 360 and a PC for gaming, and this is even pissing me off. The hackers need to screw off.
Thank you for being a gamer, not a fanboy
Ah.. good to know... you are a true gamer... not like thouse fanboyz wanna bez
How is losing 5-10 percent business losing in the thousands?
I take it you are new to reading?
I don't like giving random websites hits. Also, I didn't read it.
Yup, good job GeoHotz followers & hackers. Hurting developers and real gamers all in the name of hurting Sony.
yea. the hacker affect has a definite trickle down effect... theres a classic affect vs effect for ya, i hope i got this one right lol...
i wonder if any of those guys are under 18 or if any of them are going to just turn themselfs in cause all i care about is my online gaming time.
