Now all we need are their credit card details.


Interesting. Please explain why, have those people been proven guilty of hacking Sony and getting personal data?


Just laugh with it my Nintendo friend.

Pretty interesting article, but there are a lot of factual inaccuracies along with it. For one, Anon is known for it's professionalism "on the job" so to speak. Having a couple members go rogue and hack into Sony, and then turn on Anon, and every dramatic, high-school-esque event that's followed....well, it just reeks of forgery.

Now, I'm not saying Anon is innocent. Far from that. However, the reality is all the more sinister. Sony in 2005 had DRM on their music CDs. Sony has become this empire of lies and failures and it shows here. Sony most likely hired Anonymous to "hack" into their own servers and leave a silly little note like "Anon wuz here". It would be a big scare and everyone would phreak. Then, they could go offline for a month, saving nearly a bajillion yen, and then come back online with a few new online games simultaneously released and a subscription system following in December fresh on teh heels of "higher security".

See, Sony made a good case about the hackers, and correctly placed it as anon, but the real question is "can we trust a company that created mini-discs". No, we cannot. I only hope this goes to show the rest of you that Sony is ALWAYS wrong, and anytime you hear news of any kind, Sony is usually to blame.

This has to be the biggest paragraph of bullshit I have ever read.

What is it with everybody saying "SONY is teh evil and wantz our moniez!".

Are you stupid or something? SONY will not bring in a subscription, everybody knows that. The PSN downtime has cost SONY so much, how the fuck did you come to the conclusion that SONY shut it down to make money? And why are SONY trying to rape us of every penny they have when they were selling the PS3 at a monumental loss? And when I think of greedy money grabbing companies, SONY is one of the last to come to mind.

SONY have their fair share of fuck ups, they might be great, but they do fuck up. I don't know how the hell you came to the conclusion that SONY would use this incident to make money, use your brain.

someone's sarcasm detector is broken..

The problem is what you claimed really isn't unbelieavable, except that if Sony wanted to move forward into a Pay-only PSN, they would just do it and not set up an elaborate scheme to justify it.

Which part is believable, Sony hiring Anon to hack them, or Sony going offline in a bid to increase profits upon return?

The sinister air with which you cast Sony is quite believable, not what you accused them of specifically, but how a lot of this is in their nature. Given that Sony's one of the lead cheerleaders for the bill to make America's internet more like China's, it's not that far out there.

No more so than other major telecom/entertainment companies. It's endemic in the industry they're in. The only reason Nintendo comes out as somewhat more moral is because they have fewer interests to protect in the shady way that such companies "protect" their interests than Sony does.

"comes off as" i should have said. Even the most sunshiney corporations are vicious and underhanded in their own ways, but Nintendo hasn't been as negatively perceived as others on the whole

I'm glad I don't have to figure this thing out.  Offenders often try to fool people by painting themselves as victims, pointing the finger, and hiding the facts.  It's the oldest trick in the book.

Now who do I think is the "offender"?  Sony or Anon?  I'll hold my peace on that one.

AH yes, well, truth be told, I'm pretty gifted in that area.



I hope it's true.
