A plea for sanity in the face of runaway hysterics among the media and fans concerning the recent hack of the PlayStation Network.
Read and apply. It's infuriating to see that indie devs took the biggest hit. Hard working people who love games and try to give fun with their titles to gamers who deserve quality entertainment. This is not a hit on Sony. It's terrorist attack on gaming as whole. If anyone knows those hackers, do fellow gamers a favor and sell those mofos. Considering it's not a harmless fooling around with dev psn.
terrorist attack? Really? Don't you think that's a bit of a stretch? otherwise, I agree.
I may assume too much here, but it's still much safer than most speculation about this case.

Hmm I can see this reasonable and fair article wont make it to front page as a hot topic. Sad really.
Oooh well written article! Sight for sore eyes. Things are getting far too hysterical...my other half included. Had to spend half an hour on the phone explaining that the tabloid that had been read was all conjecture and that our cards don't need to be cancelled. Hope this all goes away soon.
A good article that will no doubt get lost amongst the "My G-mail Account was hacked and I use PSN" type articles.
This is true unfortunately.
Sony should have protected us more but Anon are still the culprits responsible for this problem and people seem to forget that. they were the main headline for weeks, now they are gone all quiet. i wonder how many of the 77 million PSN users accounts will they rob for the "greater good" and "our rights"? as Hay said above if you know these guys and get the cops on them.
even if Anonymous didn't have anything to do with this they made it easier for these criminals to hack the PSN because hundreds of hackers were attacking the network at the same time making it easier those "Bad" hackers to sneak into the PSN and they should be held responsible for their actions.
Oh my god. Someone in the gaming media actually did their job and not only researched a story but presented it clearly and without bias? Say it ain't so.
