Well, for quite some time anonymous has been denying involvement in this matter. Now it seems that Sony has proof that they were indeed involved.

I know there is many users on here that is anti sony, because of the whole removal of the other OS issue. Claiming that sony took something away wich they sold with the original product.

However, i wonder how many of these users even used the other os feature, or how many even was aware of it. It just seems like everyone jumped on the bandwagon, even though it had no impact on them personally.

I therefore applaud Sony for doing anything it can to track down these cyber terrorists and punish them to the full extend of the law.

Seriously? Sony? lol...and shut down Socom?!....

Of all the corporations on earth a f---ing video game company? Thats silly and wa'tarded. Well since CiANON or wikileaks.gov are just false flag shills I don't support anything they are about. al-CIA-da and their proxies stand to gain big time off these false flag terrorist attacks.

I guess your just scaring people into compliance like you guys tend to do.

I guess your accusing people here of terror attack to scare them into getting your way. Bullying. Why would I attack the same company I intent on selling my game software though(PSN $5 downloadable games)? Kind of stupid. Why would I sebatage my own career in game design? Why would I want the art of game design set back?

I don't even know how to program yet(still learning).

Authoritarian acts of violence is against what libertarians(anarchists) stand for. You cannot be a anarchist,civil rights activist and create,condone, or advocate violence. The globalist country-snatchers that hijacked our once functioning government is violent. You cannot be like the people you are criticising.

What does the general public stand to gain from random terror attacks? Jack crap? YES! Jack crap indeed.

What about the globalists? They can further erode our laws and push for one world government. So they gain big time.



Why would people attack a video game company? Seriously. This makes no sense.

I could have sworn I read an article where the group did take responsibility for the hacks in retaliation for the young 21 year old hacker Sony was taking to court. It keeps going back and forth for me lol

Nope. Since this happenned anonymous has stated they had no involvement, but that they can't ruled out that maybe a member went rogue and did it on his own. They as a collective though were not involved, or so they claimed.

Also the person you are talking about is known as "Geohot" and that courtcase was settled out of court.

VVV


I smell a convenient scapegoat and false flag.

Does this sound familiar?

Ok that was innapropriate... I tent to get imotional.. Im actually on your side I love sony and Nintendo were the fatcat sellouts that what became sony(console aspect) Diverged from to form something that was REAL ART and not fitting a paradigm or demographic. Which someone who is yeilding to a wannabe world power would wanna stomp out the real artists. IE Nintendo



hi agent.

Nice job.

Video games itself is an artform. Like Comics,Movies and Porn.

The playstation platform really help us designers through some dry periods. Remember back in the day with the PS1 and N64. Pure gaming goodness.

I loved my gamecube,PC and PS2.

I don't understand having animosity toward a video game company? They just sell game software. Of couse this is a false flag campiegn by an al-cia-da proxy. So who knows.

Just a quick update on this

Anonymous has now come out and said official they had no involvement in this matter, after sony said they found the evidence with the name "anonymous" and "we are legion" in their servers.

Here is the link to the full article.

Mate, i understand your concerns. But to answer the above question. It is simple, they hack the servers to get the CC numbers and personal info about people.

But apparently anonymous is not into stealing cc information, so lets see what happens. Read my above post with the link to the article.

Im not crazy I will add linx

I don't think Nintendo needs to hack sony just look at the sales charts.

Worldwide sales figures Wii – 86.01 million as of 31 March 2011[8] Xbox 360 – 50 million as of 6 January 2011[30] PlayStation 3 – 50 million as of 15 April 2011[31
This isn't even counting the massive handheld sales that embarrass sony's psp on a daily basis and show no signs of slowing in the near future.3ds sets U.S. handheld sales record

This is not proof.Hypothetically speaking, if I were to rob a bank I wouldn't drop my ID for the police to find, I would drop yours.This isn't a new concept it happens all the time it's called a diversionary tactic.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I can only hope companies learn something from all this and make sure their consumer's actually broke a law before prosecuting them.While psn was overdue for an unscheduled downtime, I hate to see it come at further cost to the consumer.I have heard rumors of friends losing money due to this but none I can confirm.Until more is certain there is little logic in speculating any further.

This is true. Nintendo in time of the 8bit needed to take a different route then those old cartridge games.
So they were the first who wanted to develop a game computer with CD.
They asked Sony to develop such electronics. Nintendo took a different route, back to snes cartridges.

Sony took their own developed product and made their first Playstation 1

This is common knowledge and hardly warrants any need for Nintendo to "hack" sony.

Ohw was that the consensus. I miss the part where Nintendo is being accused of hacking Sony
