I still cannot fathom how people are so angry with Sony over all of this.  Sony HAD to respond to what was going on.  On one side they had 3rd Party companies talking about how bad it was to the media (I remember reading an EA (I think it was) press release about how devastating the PS3 hacks could be) and on the otherhand you have very concerned Stock Holders.  They had to at least try. 

Most of their lawsuits are just plain Silly and really should never have been allowed in court, let alone ruled in their favor.  Once one suit was allowed, why not keep going?  If the court is "sympathetic" to large Corporation A, let us keep pressing our advantage.  Hell, Sony would have been STUPID not to do have pushed the envelope here.

The only thing Sony has done recently to me, that has really irked me, was the removal of Other OS.  This feature missing from the new Slims does not bother me, it is the removal from my Phat 60gig. 

The problem with people like Geo is not what they are doing, it is how people use what they have done.  There is nothing worse than running into Map Hackers in any multiplayer game. 

 

Be Angry at the US Court System, not at Sony.

I'd love to know what this post said before it was edited ;)

I posted it on your wall :)

Sony had a range of responses at their disposal, they willfully chose the one to trample consumer rights. From that point on, they've lost all sympathy as a company just trying to defend their products, much like any violation of rights in the name of security should be frowned upon

Um, I don't know if you realized this, but you agreed to a terms of service. Where in the TOS did it say that you were allowed to pirate games and such? Oh yeah, that's right, NOWHERE. And don't even give me that BS about "consumer rights" or the belief that SO many people used the Other OS feature. And then there's the idea that the jailbreak is being used for anything other than piracy. I mean, seriously, what did you all expect? What options were part of this "range of responses," hm? And then there's these guys, supposedly standing up for our rights whilst TAKING AWAY PSN for who knows how long. The fact that some of you can sit here and defend their actions is more than baffling.

I read through all the pages. This is a mildly entertaining thread! I gotta give props to "goforgold", he was the most entertaining while raising some good points inbetween the wild cursing, but that just made it even more entertaining.

My stance on this matter..Um, I guess I'm for Sony. I wouldn't mind seeing the "war" between the "Anonymous" group and Sony though, because throughout the "battles" we can ultimately determine who was right and who was wrong, via their actions.



No because,

(ok the clean version)

They should have dealt with the piracy. That was their option, but instead they decided to try to change legal precedent by assaulting people's rights and attacking the coders, who are doing things that are perfectly legal

If anything, Sony should be countersued for harrassing their customers. Hopefully at the end of this they'll be made to reimburse Hotz' legal fees, or something...



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

So, they attack Sony's websites, taking down PSN at the same time, affecting millions of legit users, in order to defend customers' rights?

It all makes perfect sense!!



That's right, just one "d"

How is deleting files gonna damage Sony unless they access the PSN which they have 0 chance of doing? I was right, all they did was hack a web site. Yeah...we should really except Sony going bankrupt now and PSN shutting down...MIGHTY HACKERS (AKA 14 year old basment dwellwers) FOR JUSTICE AND CONZUMA RIGHTS !!!!!!


Um Geohot accessed the PSN... I doubt its that hard... and it was a website security website... 

btw im not for what they are doing, I am just saying with what I have seen they probably can

My personal take on this? Sony shouldn't have started suing left and right. It just wasn't justified then and it's even more unjustified now, but they've effectively corndered themselves, backing down now would invite more attacks and calls of chicken. I wonder if it's going to be worth it in the end, even if they do win.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

What about my rights as a consumer to be able to use a service that fecktards with no jobs spend their lives trying to ruin. Fuck Anon! Fuck them in the arse until they get hemorrhoids that then burst and get infected and they need rectalplasties.

What about all the people that paid $600 to use Other OS on their system only for Sony to take out the feature for the sole purpose of their own greed?


My heart goes out to all seven of them


Let us hope that you don't end up in the minority about something and watch as everyone shits on you as if you're thoughts on the matter mean nothing.


Perhaps I wasn't sympathetic enough, but how does it make you feel that they are going to do these attacks in your name?


Am I going to get a record for it? Am I going to be charged?

If not, I simply don't care. I just want Sony to lose this court case and my consumer rights to remain in tact. PSN or video games aren't that important.

Video games are important to me but I am not going to sacrifice the freedom of doing what i want with a product i spent with my hard earned money.


Then you are on the same boat as me. 

Plus, I am a RPG gamer. Online means little to me.

 

By the way, PSN isn't going to die if Sony loses this case. Only thing that happens if Sony loses this case is that things remain the way they are, which is the way it has been since... forever.

I think people are getting paranoid about piracy and hacking. XBox360 has been hacked forever and people still seem to prefer it over PSN.x

I agree. The wii also has the most pirates of the 3 consoles yet Nintendo sell the most hardware and software.


Black Ops also sold more than MW2 and was also pirated less!

Meaning that it is possible that some who pirated MW2 enjoyed it and ended up buying Black Ops.

 

As I have always said and will continue to say, "The effects of piracy are incredibly overblown" and gamers need to wake up.

This argument didn't matter at all until PS3 got hacked and to be honest it only adds fuel to the fire about PS3 fans being the worst. They are the only ones getting bent out of shape about piracy while at the same time witnessing that the big pirated consoles sell more software!

I strongly agree with you about the PS3 fans. Youtube is infested with them.

other then pyro the console war on youtube is dead.



Being in 3rd place never felt so good
