I agree with the article. Feels like hackers are attacking the gaming industry as a whole now with their recent hacking of official video game sites (Eidos) and threats to game developers.

'Three cheers for randy whey'

Its like some one shooting your mom whil she was out shopping,and as a result your lft outside the house waiting for her to come back just like the mother in this analogy sony are victims of an attack

Horrible analogy. It's nothing like that..

Max_Dissatisfaction4762d ago

Looool! Are you serious? Shooting moms while they shop is the same as hacking PSN?
Ha ha ha ha. Please do not edit your comment, it is pure EPIC. Ha ha ha

Surprised people understood what this guy just said.

On topic, People just need to be patient with this. PSN will be back and it will be more secure than ever. That alone is worth the wait.

Yes it would be nice to have new features. But I don't even care anymore. I just want to play my games online.

That's the most stupid analogy I've ever heard.


Wait,so is the mum coming back? Was she fatally wounded or was it just a flesh wound? I'm strangely intrigued, the analogy is still desperately bad, but I'm interested in the mothers condition.

And btw, it's 'moral' not 'morale'.

dangert124762d ago

nope just the fact sony is a victim like the mom was the victim morale of the story

Randy is right, we need to band together and shun hackers. Hackers aren't in it for you, they're in it for themselves.

newhumanbreed4762d ago

lol yea we got that. You meant that the bank you usually do your banking at was breached, therefore the bank closed to keep your information safe but can't guarantee that your information was not stolen. So now you have to wait till the bank is ready to open again.

this is exactly what i have been saying since it went down, these people should be referred to cyber terrorists and people should be upset at them not the victims sony and users. Heck even the users who are victims are blaming the other victim its just dumb to do that. Much respect to Randy Pitchford for being one of the only industry people getting it right !

Randy talks so much sense, he's one of the few developers who actually smiles and has a positive attitude towards his own games too. All other devs are too serious.

I have said it before and i will say it again, Randy is a freakin' legend!

ALFAxD_CENTAURO4762d ago (Edited 4762d ago )

Indeed, he is right.
