New Challenger: Hacking. Play Games? You're Next!

In the online age no-one's information is safe.

Minus the whole psn outage,i didn't really care about what Anonymous was doing long as it didn't involve my personal information. Lulsec is just taking it to another whole level not only are they hacking but they are release info out for every tom,dick and harry to see it. Plus it seem like they are just randomly attacking gaming sites.

Totally agree. Anonymous was at least operating under the guise of a purpose. LulzSec has no purpose other than to be a nuisance to everyone and they don't discriminate.

I'm not sure what happened but the community is going down the wrong direction. What do they believe in again?.

instead of pirating games, modding your 360, or using old Firmware to play bootleg Ps3 games.....

How about you just hack into someone else's Pc, 360, or PS3 and play what ever game they got in the tray or on the HDD.

everything else is evolving so why not pirating.
