this anonymous group could have a good life a good job earning good money working for a big company as there internet security people but nope they instead choose to do this stupid shit and screw around with companys



This anonymous group do have good jobs, sh-tty jobs and everything in between. How do you know they are not making a sh-t ton or money or not. O thats right because you paint them a broke a-- hacker. Actually to do what they do takes a lot of money in some areas and also would need some highend people to function correctly. So wtf are you talking about? Maybe they even work for sony. Thats the point they are everywhere but not.

That's very nice of them. I wonder, though, if there's any connection between this decision and the chat logs where they were complaining about their inability to take down Prolexic. Hmmm!

actually they where very able to take them down and still are.

A more appropriate thread title would be...

Anonymous stops attack on PSN (Anonymous experience backlash from gaming community.  Hacking efforts thwarted by Prolexic Technologies.)

That's better.

Ummm no, they are carrying on just not going for PSN by sounds of things. Why do you think they are even doing it?


Maybe because they are a bunch of douchebags for offending legit consumers such as I by harming my rights as a consumer?

I totally agree with this! "Sony" is acting like a douchebag and offending legit consumers such as I by harming my rights as a consumer!

You should just post a article with this whole read in it. I found it interesting and maybe some of these rights haters on this site will wake up.

These are not teenagers only and you are biased as they come and stereo typing. So all gamers  on this site are complete dorks/nerds/failers, NO THERE NOT.  So you racist too? what others claims will you make? All that info about them talking is mostly bull and how do you now who is who? wheather it is even them or simply a set up by young punks or sony, maybe it was VGCHARTZ authors, who knows. Maybe it's one of 10,000  anonymous or maybe there is 1. You don't know and you don't have a clue what they have done.  They fight for rights. Thats it and stop being a zombie sony follower, think what this case means if they win.

Read this and forget about sony and there PS3 because if MS did this you would lose it.

About what you wrote up there. I'm thinking you are the teenager. I work 40 hours a week and also run a production company, sound, lighting. Also I have plenty of time to order a pizza and make a phone call. Your logic is far from idiot proof. As of now I'm also taking care of my girl that just had surgery. SO WHAT DO YOU KNOW????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Whos rights are Annon 'fighting' for??

why are Sony trying to prevent the details of its security flaws becoming public?? - because people will abuse that for piracy.

theres nothing wrong with people doing what they want in their own home - but people like Geohotz are distributing that information and that information supports piracy.

now your also forgetting that developers have intellectual property rights. Sony publish titles from a range of 3rd and 1st party developers. the livelhoods of those developers depend on honest sales of their products.

people like Anon are saying they have rights to do what they want - fair enough. but what their doing also affects the rights of developers livelyhoods and now the rights of customers over the PSN, etc.

Sony are protecting their interests and the gaming industry. if Anon dont like it, then they dont have to invest in Sony products neither did Geohotz, but he did and he distributed that security information to become popular and famous, what he done affects the lives of honest people who work very hard in a very competitive industry.

People are going to do it anyway. Anon is going after the Kock brothers. Corruption in banking, scientology. these people all deserve it. If this goes through they then can move on to push more of there agenda. If you read that article, people can't even report flaws of the product without getting sued.  do what MS does. Ban the system, seems to be working. People are still buying games and if you want to go that route. Why don't you just shut down every single gamestop. It's basically reselling there information. People are always going to mod systems and the best thing you can do is just ban it from online. Since thats where it is illegal. On your system it is not.  Sony getting everyone's information, no matter how much it means is against the law and someone has been payoff to get those.

I'm all for the developer getting the money, I pay for all my games and have over 70 games. So i hear you there. I just don't like them stepping all over our rights to do it. Make the system more mod proof. Charge for online. Maybe sony should start charging rather then going after everyone to make up there loses. what a joke. If they just ban the system, many people will go out and buy  a new system. However xbox has been modable the whole time and hasn't stopped them from outselling ps3 in software. So there is no clear cut picture here. the problem is the games are to expensive to make and stores like gamestop play the biggest role. They actually play the whole role. In the mist of gaming, modding is the last thing bringing down systems besides the computer industry. It's gamestop and I wouldn't even say it's the hacking on computers, it's the point its on a computer and most people are accustom to a tv/ system setup. Thats the way I like it and so do many others.



@^^

The Ps3 and 360 are two very different systems. I remember reading somewhere that hackers have found a way to access PSN from the Ps3 undetected from Sony. This could be a reason why Sony can't just ban consoles
