Hey asshole,
Dont be a fucking dbag and lie by saying you "bashed" anyone. You were most likely the bully who got his ass beat by one of these nerds because they got tired of your bullshit. Get a life and quit messing with people.

If someone would say fuck yourself in response to your comment its most likely and xbox fag

you point out in your question that sony fucked up, Sony who are responsible for all of your information and money you give them when you interact with PSN and DLC ect. PSN will be back up when Sony does what theyve should have been doing from the start (IMO)

I am one of those nerds and I can assure u that you would have given both my "gay" friends and myself a wide berth.

Anonymous   If you have such a high intellect, then why do you use "u" as a pronoun. It's not a word, it's a letter. So to me it seems you are bluffing and just using vocab words you learned in middle school. So class what have you learned today? Before you try to criticize someone else make sure you have actually have an intellect higher than that of a middle schooler.

People seem to forget that regardless of who gives the orders, men find reasons to motivate themselves, especially in war, and the man said he fought for our rights, if that was his motivation who are you to detract from the purpose he assigned to the task he was given?
matt russo   yea well they also attack churches and religions. dont people have the right to believe in what they want to? there a bunch of Hippocrates. i did 2 tours in iraq, if you really faught in iraq then you know what real war is, how can you stick up for people saying there at war with theses corporations, when there hiding behind a keyboard. war is putting your life on the line to fight for what you believe in. these anonasses are to pussys to face these big corps head on

It's good that you mention doing research and all, but you might want to take some of your own advice as well, because Anonymous DID NOT attack the WBC.

Sony never did anything other than remove an OS option to STOP pirating. So your boy decides to hack the system and like a dumbass share it with the world. We're not in a world where money is not required so that was a dipshit move. You wanna fight evel, hack the fuck cigarette companies, or the fast food companies who poison the american population. You think the Government is corrupt, fight the fucking powers that be. Your war on Sony is idiotic and pointless. Get your bearings before going on a rampage.

Actually, if you've ever been reading, we do not have any stance on OtherOS (Though we do like the idea.)

Instead, it was the way the trial was handled. Why the hell is a company allowed to find out the IP addresses of the people who visited Geohot's site?

Viewing a site has nothing to do with crime, or a trial. They are also pressuring Youtube and Twitter to give up the IPs and account names of anyone who even clicked on it.

Fuck Sony. If they think they are able to do this, that's why we fight.

60% of us don't own PS3s (Because we have actual JOBs and HOBBIES.), so we cannot have a stance on whatever hacks they've done.

That seems kind of dumb to say that people that own ps3's don't have lives or hobbies. I mean playing video games is as much a hobby as hacking, supporting hackers are whatever you do in you grand life.

And one other point, these "rights" you're said to have are just ideas on a piece of paper. There is no "god GIVEN RIGHTS" cause there is no god plus you're just another animal like a fish, do fish have the same rights?

So either way you are both acting like kids anon and Sony.

Their just selling a product that some people choose to buy and slowly kill themselves with, in all honesty, if your not going to do something about it, then don't say anything.
Anonymous   Nobody lives on "near minimum wage" and can pay bills, even barely in the U.S. $3 above minimum wage in most regions leaves you approximately $500 in the hole in the most minimalist lifestyle without excessive overtime. And let's face it, if you were making that much overtime, you wouldn't be here.

Maybe then, just maybe, this guy (anon queer basher) will go do something more productive like eating a chud dumpling. People behind a keyboard talk BIG. He's mad because he has no life and wants his psn network back up. LoL...Here's what I can tell you. Join the class action lawsuit against them. Maybe next time they wont fuck with Goerge and the people in failOverflow. Simply put Playstation lied and we are due for restitution. Don't sue 100 people because 1 guy mainly out of all of those found a way to make the ps3 do what it was supposed to do. Anon and anyone who actually hack for legitimate causes are supported by all. I wouldn't call them hackers, simply put, they are pioneers on the digital front. Oh one more thing for the queer doughnut guy... If I sold you something saying it could do this; however, later simply take it away in an update; which is a breach in initial contract (consumer purchase based on features, selling me something saying it can do this--then it can't, etc.). Then you (doughnut guy)--(highly unlikly) found a way to get the "feature" back that was one of the deciding factors for your final purchase. Later, you then decided to share your knowlege with others seeking to gain that same "feature" back that was "taken" from them. Should I as the company that sold you this item be able to sue you, your family, retrive information of those that even looked at it? Should I be able bring litigation against you and everyone else, by falsely accusing them of something that was not their (most not all) intentions? If you think that's fair you're an idiot. Know your rights; we have them in place for a reason. Don't get mad at anon and those who try to hold people (companies, Governments) responsible for their actions. Everyone should be allowed freedom of speech, information, religion, etc without any censorship. In closing, lol....Thanks for reading I know it looks like a rant, however, I simply wanted him to look at it logically, and not like a psn twat. Maybe this will give you time to pick up a hobbie. Ohh well maybe not off to work now.

Tl2IGG3l2   This is a war and if you know what war is, then you know there will be casualties.... But i believe this is a war worth fighting for, because there is no one dying on a battlefield here my friend. We as people of whatever country must stand up for our rights. It is people like Anonymous that stand up and make us see that sometimes wer'e being blinded the Elite. I am not from Anonymous, and i love playing Ps3... But i see what they are trying to do, and it is appreciated.. So if you can't give up your Ps3 for a few days and go do something productive, then your'e just a drone my friend.. And you will do nothing but like sheep stare at your telivision screen. We as the people of any country must stand up and soon, because i do believe that things are coming that will catch us by surprise... The elite have plans for us, that is unless we can wake up. So Anonymous for this i thank you, keep on pissing people off... Make them wake up and see what the hell is going on in this world... We must help humanity all of us, wer'e all brothers and sisters like or not... And we can finish by destroying humanity, or waking up into a higher conscience and helping everybody become better. That's all i have to say, i know im going to be bashed on but it doesn't matter... Because me myself, i want to wake up my brothers and sisters and make them see. Even if i am seen as a nut. Let's get this world and humanity to the way it was meant to be. Money doesn't rule Love, Peace, and Compassion do. Learn to be selfless.

I think there is going to be many people that hate them, and then there will be many people that applaud them. I think that what they're doing is great because as long as the message gets out there, that we the people can and will change what needs to be changed that which the corrupt elite have created. So i applaud them (Even though i miss Black ops =( ) Our countries, specially the elite of our countries have been tearing us apart bit by bit each year.. To the point that we really don't think for ourselves anymore, I think it's time to take the stand. Show them that humanity is not about money, hate, or war, but we as humans must put are differences aside and come together for our future generations.

we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom - symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning - signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.

The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe - the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans - born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage - and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge - and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do - for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom - and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.

To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required - not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge - to convert our good words into good deeds - in a new alliance for progress - to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbours know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.

To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace, we renew our pledge of support - to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective - to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak - and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.

Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.

But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course - both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final war.

So let us begin anew - remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belabouring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms - and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah - to "undo the heavy burdens -. and to let the oppressed go free."

And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavour, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again - not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are - but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" - a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shank from this responsibility - I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavour will light our country and all who serve it -- and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.

"A group of hyperconnected individuals choosing to hyperdistribute their knowledge around an identified domain can engender hyperintelligence. That hyperintelligence is not a static actor. To be in relation to a hyperintelligence necessarily means using the knowledge provided by that hyperintelligence where, when and as needed. The more comprehensive the hyperintelligence, the greater the range of possible uses and potential effects...

Hyperempowered individuals and networks are asymmetrically empowered relative to any individual or group of individuals (whether as a collective, an organization, or an institution) not similarly hyperempowered. In any exchange, hyperempowered actors will always be more effective in achieving their aims, because in every situation they know more, and know better how to act on what they know. The existence of hyperempowerment simultaneously creates a new class of selection pressure; as various social and cultural configurations interact with hyperempowered individuals and networks, they will be selected against unless they themselves use the techniques of hyperconnectivity, hyperdistribution and hyperintelligence to engender their own hyperempowerment. Once any one actor achieves hyperempowerment, all who interact with that actor must either hyperempower themselves or face extinction...

Hyperconnectivity, hyperdistribution, hyperintelligence and hyperempowerment have propelled human culture to the midst of a psychosocial phase transition, similar to a crystallization phase in a supersaturated solution, a ‘revolution’ making the agricultural, urban and industrial revolutions seem, in comparison, lazy and incomplete. Twenty years ago none of this toolkit existed nor was even intimated. Twenty years from now it will be pervasively and ubiquitously distributed, inextricably bound up in our self-definition as human beings. We have always been the product of our relationships, and now our relationships are redefining us."

See Peter F Hamilton's vision of a commonwealth future where such Hyper-intelligent societies co-exist with all manner of societal variants. Acceptance of another's will, motivations and passions are at the core of freedom, a freedom to be or not to be. Consider the prime directive of any superior species to not interfere in the evolution of another species of lesser technological or social levels, but to accept their differences and observe what will come to be.
Ultimatum is the weapon of choice for the rigid of will and narrow of focus, the dictator of virtual choices.

If you have something to say or do.. stop hiding behind the "anonymous" titles and tell us who you are. The fact is they don't cause what they're doing is ILLEGAL. The can be arrested, and imprisoned for what they do. Course that's ok.. you talk about helping humanity or people need to know the truth.. why do it with terrorism? There are literally hundreds of ways to get your point across (ie: Wake ppl up).. you don't have to bring down a service that for some that's all they have. For instance: Me- I'm a 58 yr old disabled American VET, I don't go anywhere because I can't .. I'm in a lot of pain, I suffer for acute service related injuries. I live alone, have no friends other than those on the internet.. or they live out of my state. All I have is my PS3 and XBox 360. I play them because it helps me escaped the physical and mental parts of my pain. How is bringing down PSN doing me any good? I'm not saying I'm the only one, I'll bet there are others in the same boat as I. Unable to socialize outside of our livingrooms. Our only contacts is thru gaming, or social sites. You learn to be selfless or learn what that really means. Anonymous claims they didn't do it, this time. Ok.. I have no reason to doubt them..

There seem to be a lot of people blaming Sony for a problem caused by someone else illegally hacking into their system.
By that logic, if you lock your doors and somebody kicks it down and slaughters your family it must be your own fault for not having a 12 inch thick steel door on a concrete bunker 30 meters underground to protect them.
Whoever hacked the network went to a great deal of trouble to do something they knew was illegal and the responsibility lies COMPLETELY with them.
I don't believe it's possible to design online security for a system that cannot be broken when so many hackers devote their time to just proving they can do it.
If security is so easy why does Windows need constant updating and your antivirus downloads a new definition file everyday? Only one reason, 99.9% of us are happy to use the technology for the legal purposes it was designed, the other 0.1% think that somehow the law doesn't apply to them or that they know better than everyone else what the law should be.
Hack away all you want to change a game or application on your own system but leave the rest of us out of it.
I don't care if it's Anonymous or just another nobody hacker, once the hacking leaves your own system you are just another cyber terrorist criminal and you deserve nothing less than the full force of the law coming down on you.

One problem: Anon is telling you that they DID NOT DO IT! Anon is high-profile. If they are the reason why PSN is down, then why are they outright telling you, "We did not do it!" Simply put, you're doing the human thing: Demanding a reason. When one isn't supplied, you create it. Anonymous admitted that it did some DDoS attacks before, but they stopped them. Why would they go through the trouble of firing up the Low Orbit Ion Cannons and then and then lie about it? They're Anon! There's no benefit in lying about it, only admitting they did it when it does happen.
All you're doing is taking what Sony's saying and what Sony's implying and running with it, much like a fanboy will. It doesn't matter whether or not it's the truth, Sony said so, so it's gotta be right.
Oh, and about this whole Cyber-Terrorism thing, give it up. What, people sending data around the world make you scared? That's what you're implying by calling it Cyber-Terrorism.
Anonymous   for some reason im kind of sad though to say,..but this is truth.
Laughing-MaM-   Eh, i jailbreak my ps3 any chance i can when a new CFW comes out im balls deap in it, Now sony wants to take this away i guesit really comes down too, Do you really own ur PS3, its able to do a hell of alot more than wut they let u do with it
Anonymous_sucks   You idiot, it would do nothing if the company went broke and never designed PS3. Be grateful for what you have. If these anonymous clowns are so fantastic let them start their own company and give morons like you "what you deserve".

Anonymous   well lets consider the facts here. what did HE do to the system abd what was HE doing with it. and was HE doing something with his illegal shit on SONY's network. if you actually read their liscence agreement which HE should have done. then this prob would have never happend. putting your own shit on something you bought prob wasnt the issue. him using it on something that is still SONY's is what prob pissed him off. that is why you guys are kinda selfish in that sense. and how long did he have to sit in jail anyways

why are you then trying to get on psn?
just don't update correct .so why try attack sony is it because you want to cheat and mod shit in games like mw2 infected lobbies ,other wise you would be happy.And the legal battle has been going on since last year ,yet you barge in there few weeks ago.Whats up with that.was there not a update round about then.
sony gave your geo more than get out jail you think he will thank anon, or is he trying to keep his head down.
And if psn is decoy against anon its working because the hate is spreading.I just keeps backfiring.

what the law actually means, and what it prevents as opposed to what it allows is, however, highly relevant

Sony are a buisness who NEED to turn a profit to keep there share holders happy. geohot jepordised this.(since you all are about rights) its there right to protect the company and there employees future. All you have done(if you have done anything) is made sure that while the ceo is away having a fun holiday joe blogs is working trying to fix it. You want to make a diffrence try attacking anti net neutrality companys pedo rings etc. you call your self a army, your just a band of thugs whole hide under the activist banner.

I'm pretty sure Mr. Hotz wouldn't have gone to jail even if Sony hadn't decided to settle with Hotz out of court. If I remember correctly, the Hotz case was a tort or civil case and NOT a criminal case.

According to wikipedia, Sony filed against hotz on the counts of including violation of the DMCA, computer fraud, and copyright infringement which I think are all civil claims and not criminal (haven't researched what these claims would be filed as so if anybody is more enlightened than I, please feel free to politely correct me)

Technically, if some anon (or group of anons) is/are behind this outage, it means everybody else are just their pawns, they're sacrificing everyone's right to play the games we have bought for a self serving philosophical view.

Whomever brought down PSN should first be lauded for their incredible talent, then promptly shunned for their clear disregard for EVERYONE ELSE'S RIGHTS.

If this was a war as some commenters claim, between the "government" of Anon and Sony, then every single user on PSN are the people (some of whom have duel citizenship, and many are not for such a war). If an Anon made the attack, that Anon has decided to attack the civilians rather than the military. Furthermore, by attacking the civilians, that anon has also attacked his own people. If this was a war it would not only go against the Geneva Convention, but it would also be considered genocidal campaign against ones own people.

Perhaps wanting to play games despite some guy going through a legal battle is selfish. But sacrificing the entire world of PSN players (and some Anons may I remind you) for one person is grossly selfish and despicable. Please I challenge you to reconsider your positions anons!
Anonymous 2011-04-22 18:36:24
well you made me reconsider me initial assessment of your post as relatively well-reasoned by the time we got to the Geneva Convention[s] and genocide

btw, there are criminal provisions under the DMCA, and the computer fraud statute (18 USC 1030) is a public, criminal law (the same one used to prosecute DDoS), albeit with additional civil remedies available upon conviction
Who The Fuck Cares 2011-04-23 13:00:55
IDK what this whole thing is about but i got the idea of some guy re-custimizing his PS3 and making a video on how to do it. (If i'm wrong plz correct me.

But if this guy really did do that then he shouldn't be jailed for that. If he had re-custimized his PS3 and claimed that as his own product then thats another story where he should just get finned (Not really good with spelling so I don't know if I spelt anything wrong).

Anonymous   He made changes to it that was against the Terms and Services, which he had to agree to in order to operate PSN. Because of that violation, Sony has every right to press charges, and sue him. However a hacking attack like this is illegal and is defined as "cyberterrorism," so legally, Sony is on the right side. They;ve done nothing wrong. It's the arrogant pricks who believe that it's right to hack Sony and deprive over 50 million people of a service that they bought. What, mess with the lives of 50 million people so one guy doesn't have to spend time in jail for a crime that he knowingly, and definitly comited. That sounds pretty fucking selfish to me. BTW, it's not Sony's fault that you guys have no friends, were abused as a child, molested by your uncle, or beat up in high school. You guys have to grow up and learn that that freedom of speach, doesn't mean you have the right to conduct Cyberterrorism. I hope that whatever worthless, arrogant piece of shit who is hacking Sony gets hunted down by the FBI or any other government group, and thrown in jail so they can finally see what the world looks like outside of their mom's basement. In my opinion they should all be dragged throught the streets and hanged, but we all know that won't happen.

Anonymous   Well without hackers there wouldnt exactly be the games you play or care so much about, and before people respond to this with an immature post about "How is hacking related to making games?". Hackers can be categorized into a few categories, Programmers and security specialists for example. So if all hackers should be shot in your opinion, then the people that make the games you care so much about should be shot too?
Tl2IGG3l2   You could say that about Lawyers, Elites, Corrupt, Misinformation agents.. But you go attacking hackers that are trying to help people and future generations out?... Interesting how people can be so stupid at times...
Anonymous   So hackers are trying to help us by taking away our PSN access. Oh, yeah, thanks assholes. If we wanted help, the people would ask for it. Who's asking? That's right no one. And by "helping" the people, hackers are just making most of the population hate them. Anymore of this shit and the half the world will be calling for your heads on a platter, and the world's governments will be more than willing to deliver it. For right now over 50 million people, I being one of them, want every last one of you to die horribly and rot in hell. And next time you hackers want to "help" the people, put a gun in your mouth and pull the trigger. We'll all feel pretty grateful if you do that.

It's all BS. I own a lot of assault weapons. I OWN them all legally. Now if I want to make my AK-47 full auto I can't because federal law prohibits it. But wait. I own it, its registered in my name WTF. People are dumb.

If you want to hack shit do it but don't distribute. Its that simple. As for my AK well it may or may not become full auto. If it does and I get caught I will have to deal with the consequences. No different than Geo's mess. Welcome to the party.

If it's cancer, then remove yourself from it and stop harrassing 60+ million gamers, you power-hungry fucks.

Hackers, as a whole, prefer to modify someone else's IP instead creating their own. They use means to dishonestly embue their wills to things in ways that contradict the wills of said IPs owners/users. When I play BlackOps, I don't wish to deal with lag-switching losers (and that's what YOU are, or YOU wouldn't feel the need to do it), or script wielding hacktards. You ruin the fun of others to gain fun for yourself...not much unlike how parasites hurt their hosts for their own growth.

Why not just go jerk-off to pictures of your daddy sodomising you and his own daddy?? I'm sure you fucks are the best at it, and it doesn't ruin anyone else's fun.

This advice is free, unlike what Sony is going to do to you and your parents in court once they've tracked your mommies and daddies down.

Have a bad day.
Anonymous   What I want to know is, whats the point of hackers and hacking? what is it that these people try to achieve or obtain? I mean there has to be a reason why they're doing what they're doing right. I got a ps3 not because of the games and the movies theeyhave I mostly use it as a source of communication with friends and family. Im currently in Japan in Camp Zama, I use the ps3 camera to talk to family in the states and mexico and my sister in spain,its alot easier and way cheaper using video chat instead of a long distance call. But like I said what is it that these hackers want?????
NaTuRaL 2011-04-28 04:57:37
Well brother, hacking is the idea of exploiting things to make them do what you want them to do. An act of curiosity which makes us human. This curiosity got you the personal computer you have today. The reason why the psn was hacked follows the same philosophy. Without this need for exploitation in pushing the boundaries of what is logically possible, humans would be stagnant creatures lost of creativity. As inconvenient as this may appear it is an inevitable and necessary part in evolving society.

The only thing that is constant is change.

What it means to be anon 2011-04-26 08:15:28
Anon is not a nerd behind a pc. Anon is not a group of people hacking. Anon is not people argurging endlessly on a website.

Anon is pure. It is free from all the rubbish that me, you, anyone posts on websites like these, harassing other people and restating the same thing thousands of times. Anon does not sit behind a computer screen, thinking about a smart of funny reply.

What anon stands for is something we are unworthy to even claim to. We are all flawed, and we all make mistakes. Anon is better than we can ever be.

For those who are still confused, anon is a new start for anyone who has done wrong and wants to change. Anon is a way to defend other people, because it does not matter who you are, how old you are, weather you kill people or sell flowers on the street. Anon is something we can never be. It is free from prejudice and prejudgment.

Anon gives EVERYONE the SAME voice and the SAME opportunites. Anon makes people free from fear about what they say, and who will see it. Anon is how our tiny world should hope to be. Its not some sort of communism or economic policies, that share out money or give people a 'vote'.

Very few of you who use the name anon, know what power and freedom you hold. It disgusts me the way people abuse eachother, even when they no absoulty nothing about eachother, they still take morally high grounds, still believe that they are better. That kind of person has no place in a fair world.

I hope that some of you might realise, what it truely means to be anon. I don't believe that im worthy to use such a name

Although I agree that what Sony is doing is wrong. Specifically, they shouldnt be allowed to obtain the IP addresses of persons that accessed this website.

Targetting the psn network and in turn denying access to millions of gamers on their holiday weekend was an ill-conceived idea turning many against Anon.

This is especially true if peoples personal info gets leaked out whether thats intentional or not .

Stick to the things that matter like the things done with Scientology and Egypt . The ability to jailbreak a ps3 and install an aimbot for Blacks Ops or to download a game meant to be purchased for free should be a low priority or not one at all.

Everyone deserves to be paid for the works they create

Choose your targets wisely in the future.

I was hurt and depressed when my lover of five years left me for another woman. One friend suggested the idea to contact a spell caster, which I would have never thought of myself. I contacted a few of them but [email protected] was the person I felt good with. he was understanding, replied all my emails promptly and patiently. Then I decided to place an order for his spell even if at that time I was still a bit skeptical about his capacity to bring my man back with me. Only 1 week after the spell was actually cast, he returned to me and since then, it seems that there is no more mistrust and no more lies between us. For that reason, I am gladly leaving a testimonial on this page, which I believe will help persons to chose prophetharry for their case.
Anonymous   This outage is all YOUR fault Anonymous. I don't care which supposedly "rogue" members are doing it now (by your claim) started the whole attack idea. You have no sympathy from me anymore, or my family & friends, we don't care that you want to be able to hack your PS3. What we care is that for days we can't play, can't stream Netflix, etc....and that is 100% your fault. You have abused all of us for your own selfish ends. I hope Sony finds a way to lock you out of hacking PS3s forever, then you can go find something else to amuse your destructive tendencies with and stop abusing all the rest of us with your little projects.

What incredible debating skills we're seeing here. "Baaaaa", followed by " lulz tooo troooooooooooo..... mmmmbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaAAAAAaaaa....Baaaa".

The facts are thus:-

a) If it is indeed Anonymous who are to blame then they are being no better than the corporate evil that they seek to teach a lesson to, in that they are deciding when and if PSN users are allowed to use online features. In fact, by making decisions for all of us, the lose the moral high ground that they may have had to begin with. Affecting 70 million users because of a minority on a crusade rapidly loses support for said minority.
b) If the outage is to do with the Amazon crash and Sony are using it to make Anonymous or A.N.Other group of hackers look like the bad guy, then tbh, it's pretty decent marketing.

None of us know what's going on. Although Anonymous have denied responsibility, we can't be sure that they''re telling the truth. Likewise with Sony.

Both side are now enmeshed with each other and neither has the total right on their side.

I saw a couple of people mention that this is a deliberate attack on Sony to force people away from PSN and onto XBox Live to make a statement. What statement would that be? We don't like you, big, bad Mr. Sony, we're all off to play with Bill Gates' machines. The biggest corporate bastard on the planet.
Anonymous   some would argue there's still an important semantic difference between "decent",as used above, and "effective"
Anonymous   You clearly have no idea how things work do you? I assume you mean the Amazon cloud going down meant that transactions stopped going through. If a step of a purchase is unable to be completed because of technical complications it doesn't just skip over it, it cancels the whole thing, Sony isn't stupid.
Anonymous   Just a side comment. Anon couldn't "tell" people how to take down a multibillion dollar corporation network. The DDOS was meant to simply remind them hackers exist and can cause annoyance. If a few hackers are behind this current downtime they are more than likely skilled in their own right and no one "told" them how to do anything. Hacking isn't like making a pizza. It's not for the weakminded. but seriously? Get off your ass and go outside, it'll be fixed eventually and you wont die cause you can't play Co-Op Portal 2. People did DO things before games existed.
Anonymous   Anon has no right to decide whether or not I'm allowed to use the PSN.
Anonymous 2011-04-22 19:05:07
the game being played on all sides is not about rights, but capabilities

no single Anon has the capability to deny you access to the PSN, but as was shown by the initial downing, enough people who feel similarly, acting together, can do just that and (as seen elsewhere), much more

that's a powerful message for governments and corporations, and one which, with a little perspective, you might come to appreciate

Anonymous   well, building a console cost billions, sony invested over a billion into the ps3 alone, development etc. The reason George Hotz hacked his console was not to Download illegal warez onto it. it was to use linux. His jailbreak didnt even allow the capabilities to play .iso games on it. Someone else added that functionality later on. Altho Anonymous did not have to go to the lengths of DDosing sony, I actually agree with them on one thing: The guy bought the ps3 for himself, he should have the right to do whatever he wants with it. Sony doesnt think that way. In sony's eyes we are just buying the rights to use the console, not buying the console itself. If you dont believe me, read the court documents from the case at .
not a sheep   Absolutely !!
Anonymous   Yeah, he is getting sued and going to jail because he BROKE THE FUCKING LAW, and he violated Sony's policies which he had to agree to when he started using PSN. Sony has every right to do what they are doing to him, and these Cyber-terrorists have no right to interfere. I don't give a fuck about this guy's life, for all I care he could be publically executed. He broke the fucking law, and that has consequences, and now some group thinks it's ok to fuck with everyone's lives because they think he shouldn't have to face the consequnces of his actions.

Who was facing jail? And didn't they settle anyway?

BTW, Sony is a Japanese corporation, and in case you didn't know, there's a lot of goodwill towards that nation right now due to the fact that *a good deal of their country was destroyed and a good number of their people were killed by an earthquake and tsunami*. So, that timing thing is sort of a bitch, no matter how much you hate Sony.

Also, even if it is an internal PSN problem, blaming Anon was a brilliant move because it's clearly undercutting support for Anon. I ought to know; I was at the Scientology protests in my city, unmasked arguing with the "church" folks. But this move seems sort of counterproductive and a little stupid. I've got no real dog in the hunt over the geohotz issue, other than that he sort of comes off as an arrogant little prick, so I'm sort of less likely to care what happens to him anyway. The messenger is kind of key to the perception and reception of the message, and all that.

Additionally, the Anon FB post that alludes to responsibility didn't do the cause any favors. Nor does the constant waffling between denial and self-righteousness.

Try to pull it back together and get on to some good work.
Anonymous   Either Anon is attacking now. Or they've told others how to do it, and are happy to see it continuing. Or they did enough damage recently that it's causing problems now. Any way you slice it, Anon is responsible.
Anonymous   The flipflopping is largely due to the decentralized nature of anon. While the whole "chaotic hivemind" deal is what makes anon a formidable force it is not without its drawbacks. The "waffling", as you put it, is a manifestation of this.

So one wronged individual is worth wronging millions?I don't know who did it.But If i were ever guilty of something.It would be playing my games and never disturbing anyone.You want people on your side yet ruin the fun of the people who mostly support anonymous gamers,nerds and geeks.I think this is utterly ridiculous.If you wanted our support for geohot i think theres less drastic ways to spread the word.The scintology shit was priceless and im glad anonymous put those scammers in their place.But if you wanted everyones attention you went about it the wrong way.You wonder why you have gamers bashing on here?Well since anonymous and i love v for vendetta so much heres a quote.

something tells me if you have a ps3, you have a computer, and your family can suffer with watching movies on it, or not. how about just go retro and get the dvd?

what real abuse have you had because of this? you havent been entertained by something outside your own imagination for a few days? people are being sued and/or being fined for learning and teaching each other to be better at their own skills. how is learning and teaching (legal) skills illegal?

you may not listen, you may not even entertain this thought. but we hope you do.

Anonymous   Although the network is down, I have been able to use netflix just fine. As I am upset about not being able to play online, Anonymous is not against the user, just the corporations that abuse them. Either Sony is having a issue all on their own, or someone acted on their own. In my understanding, Anonymous will shutdown playstation store, not shutdown the ability to play games online. I am in full support. It's not just about being able to hack into the ps3, but a freedom that allows you to do what you want with what you have as long as it doesn't alter someone elses freedom. Whatever happened to psn, I would like to be able to get on again, but if it means going without to help against a twisted corporation/government then I'm all for it.

"A great empire has been established for the sole purpose of raising up a nation of customers who should be obliged to buy from the shops of our different producers, all the goods with which these could supply them. For the sake of that little enhancement of price which this monopoly might afford our producers, the home-consumers have been burdened with the whole expense of maintaining and defending that empire...

It cannot be very difficult to determine who have been the contrivers of this whole mercantile system; not the consumers, we may believe, whose interest has been entirely neglected; but the producers, whose interest has been so carefully attended to..."

Depending on how long you have owned the system, Sony has abused you by removing features included with the system at the time of purchase. That is attacking your freedom. Admit it, what you want is not freedom.

Because of him I can now download ps3 games and play them. Eventually I can play NES games, the ps2 games that don't work on ps3 and N64 games on a ps3. Why wouldn't someone want that information and just because he's a free thinker who modified his own ps3 that he paid for, he will be sued.
Anonymous   I don't care. Our PS3s have served us just fine as-is. Until Anon attacked all of us.

I completely agree. After skimming through all these posts I've deducted you're all either two kinds of people:
1. Thinking intelligently like this post above.
2. Saying their heroes, or something to that regard.
Either way, they are retarded. It's some pathetic hackers throwing a temper-tantrum because they're not allowed to hack a console and STEAL content by downloading it freely.
To all the damn naysayers, I'm pretty sure if you were in the Video game market you would not want your hardwork and money being distributed for free. Sony was completely right in bringing this fucking loser to court, and they were the nice ones who settled out, when he could have potentially went to prison for his illegal actions. Think critically for once people, in all likeliness, this attack is Anon's fault, it's as clear as OJ's guilt. That said, can people also stop bringing in conspiracies and other shit to the table. If you're going to debate, do it with some dilligence and intellect.
Anonymous 2011-04-27 01:59:16
3. Peoples who think in absolute and think they are the absolute truth.

Was the complain only because they sued him? NO. It's because of the scale it took. Sony taking down videos merely showing the hack, Sony tracking the IP of peoples who visited the site, view or commented on the video. It is a denial of information and liberty.

Sony protecting their PS3? Yes. Sony acting like dictators of the internet? No.

The only way Anon could get the point across was to piss off the consumers i.e. the fucking money. Hit them in their pockets and they pay attention.

I don't really care if you guys did it or not but please leave Sony alone. Sony had the right to do what they did and they did it for us PS3 owners. They didn't want hackers to ruin our online experience so they did what they did. Please leave Sony alone. I beg you guys to leave Sony alone. You guys do anything for a online citizens then listen to this online citizen and leave Sony alone. Please if you guys care others then yourself. Please.
P.S. Please don't hack my computer, I have it for 2 years and I don't have the money to replace it.

One of the difficulties of debugging code (I'm a programmer), is that unlike the real-world, where cause & effect are usually related by either similar timing, or spatial proximity, in the world of computers, an action on 1 computer can cause a breakdown in another one, weeks later. Depending upon what the routine interaction between those 2 computers is, of course.

The OP seems to be trying to remind us that Sony has a vast array of forensic specialists available to pore over the contents of sites such as this looking for... ?? ...dissident posters expressing invalid opions on the internet, and confusing regular folks who don't care for the internet and wish it would all be over like it was with garbage pail kids and the hoola hoop? wtf ??
W1ck3d_p   What I find rather interesting is I have kept my mouth shut about this ENTIRE ordeal. I know what took place with Geohotz and why Sony slammed him in court. But here's the thing, I simply cannot condone attacking a giant corporation simply because you don't agree with their business practices. I'm not saying they attacked them, but I know you have in the past. Hack your PS3 systems all you like, but Sony has every right to ban people who hack their systems and connect to their network with hacked systems. The bottom line is do you want access to PSN? Yes? Then don't hack your system. End of Story. Now because YOU feel like you have a right to demand something and attack a company the legit gamers have to suffer? That's not very fair for consumers who like to play legit is it? You claim you are the intelligent bunch standing up for people's rights? But your the first ones to cripple gamers rights to a network.

Anonymous   Alot of people are attacking anonymous just because they cant get on playstation network. Quite sad if you ask me. Did it ever occur to people that it could be the fault of an IT at the place sony is hosting the psn servers at? If anonymous actually did kill the psn servers, they would have admitted to it. They would have announced it. They had no reason to attack sony's servers a second time because george hotz and sony settled out of court. Also, for those who do not know the reason WHY anonymous attacked sony's servers; go to and read the court documents from sony's lawsuit against George Hotz. In those documents Sony states that they are selling the rights to use the console, not selling the consoles themselves. In sony's eyes these playstation 3 consoles are still theirs and we have no right to do whatever we want to them; even though we paid between 400 and 700 usd for them. Also if anyone who has used the playstation network actually read through the terms of service it actually states that sony reserves the right to invade your privacy by seeing what's on your consoles, what messages you send, what sites you go to on your ps3, and they reserve the right to send that information to the police. That in itself is a direct violation of our rights. This is America, we have a right to our privacy. We have a right to use something we paid for in any way, shape or form we choose. Those who violate those rights should be punished, and altho Anonymous chose the wrong way to punish sony, it proved a point to those actually paying attention to something other than themselves. Now to those complaining about the PSN being down: Go outside, spend some time with family, play with your kids. To think that just 30 years ago people werent so dependant on technology. For those complaining about "Netflix", theres a place near you called Blockbuster. Go there, rent a movie, watch it with family, return, repeat. Playstation network will be fixed soon, until then, enjoy some fresh air.

Actually, you didnt read my comment thoroughly, Anonymous was attacking sony because of sony's blatant disregard for our rights as americans. Should i quote myself just so you can see?

"In those documents Sony states that they are selling the rights to use the console, not selling the consoles themselves. In sony's eyes these playstation 3 consoles are still theirs and we have no right to do whatever we want to them; even though we paid between 400 and 700 usd for them."

Basically those are the reasons that anonymous was attacking sony. They dont care about the jailbreak, they actually care about the legality of the matter. What sony is doing is illegal.

I mean think about it this way.... I sell you a computer, top of the line alienware, but in order to use it I have you sign a document stating that i have the right to view whatever you do on that Alienware computer, whatever you tell your friends on facebook, whatever you say on Yahoo messenger, whatever you download and i also reserve the right to send such data to the police as i see fit. Dont you consider that illegal?
Anonymous suck   Then don't buy the computer, if I sell u a house and in the contract I say i can come in a visit u whenever I feel like with my own key would u buy it?. If you don't like it buy a different house, or an xbox.
Anonymous   Thats true, but not too many people read the contracts nowadays. They just wanna get in and enjoy themselves. I myself disagree with the tactics used to punish sony. I do agree with the mentality behind the attacks, but i dont agree with the attacks themselves.
Anonymous suck   Then learn to read dude, don't go fucking my day because you made a mistake
Anonymous   dont take this the wrong way, but how would a comment mess up your day? Im just speaking my mind, same as you. I apologize if my comment messed up your day, just wanted to try to get the air clear on this whole anonymous mess. Im just not fond of seeing people blamed for shit they didnt do. The way i see it, both sides should help each other out, anon helps fix the servers, and sony puts the other os feature in a firmware update, that way everyone's happy, but i doubt it's gonna work that way.
Anonymous suck 2011-04-22 13:25:43
You messed my day Coz I'm not using my ps3, If anon didnt do this then u are still responsible as your recent attacks exposed a vulnerability. What is very likely is you have rogues out there that are still part of your group meaning u still did this, you put the idea in their head with your hatred for Sony.

Regardless you can still use other os, you just can't use your ps3 on psn as well. If you want it so bad don't use psn and your ps3 as a game console. You can't be allowed to cheat and hack on psn anymore because it's not fair on people who want to use their ps3 as a fair online console.
Anonymous   ur days must suck. on the other hand you said they exposed a vulnerability. isnt that a good thing? imagine if Anonymous was much more evil and wasnt sorry about taking down the network. at least now Sony can increase security to protect against worse attacks from people who dont give a fuck if you ever play your gay little games again. play outside for a week and then PSN will be back and you never have to leave the house again

what if it didn't say THAT in the contract,but it did say you could could unilaterally change the terms of the contract - and then, after I bought it, you decided to but in a clause saying you could come in whenever you liked?

and when I complained, you could just point to the clause that I agreed to stating that you could change the contract?

sure, I could say 'I never expected you'd try to use it for something so patently absurd as retaining a right to enter my house or to make me choose between continuing to run Linux or to continue playing games', but you would apparently counter that the law is whatever the stronger party to the contract says it is,and anyone aggrieved should learn to get over it or risk imprisonment

The main problem with this analogy is that it is totally false, and doesn't compare with the PS3 situation at all.

Let's instead go back to the old standard of shit analogies - the car.

You buy a car. It's all yours. You decide you want to replace the ECU, or fit bigger wheels or something. Obviously, this isn't a problem. However, you decide that you want to mount big spinning blades to it. Or flamethrowers. Or even just remove all of the rear lights. Again, this isn't a problem - you can do that if you want.

In the first situation, you have no problems at all - you can do it and carry on using the car as normal. When it comes to the second set of modifications, you can make them, but you can no longer take the car out on the public roads, legally at least.

The PS3 is the car. PSN isn't the car, it's the roads. You didn't buy the roads. You CAN do what you will with the car, but be aware that if you make certain modifications, you will no longer be allowed to use it in public. The PSN is exactly the same - it's a private club. Sony can kick anyone off it for any OR NO reason, and consequently any talk of terms of contracts is irrelevant. Note that they did not simply take OtherOS away - they simply decided to no longer allow consoles with OtherOS to enter said club. And, let's not forget, they did so solely because Geohot published a means of using OtherOS to gain root privileges.

Of course, this doesn't really cover what Geohot was sued for. It wasn't for modifying the PS3, nor was it for taking a modified console online, nor was it even for publishing a means of gaining root via OtherOS. Many companies would have started a lawsuit then and there, and Sony possibly should have done the same, in hindsight. Remember, at this time PS3 users already had Linux support on the PS3, and with a bit of wangling and until Geohot came along, could actually develop homebrew games without issue.

No, Geohot was sued for then going on to find a way of gaining root outside of OtherOS, and most importantly of publishing said material. He did so not for you, or "the community", or for open rights, or for the principle of the matter. He did so to satisfy his own ego, largely because Sony had spoiled his fun. He didn't want Sony to "win", simple as that. Geohot has no interest in homebrew or the indie development scene; he just goes from device to device, finding ways to subvert security, and to allow unsigned code to be run. There is no moral reasoning behind this - usually the reason why a dev or techie will choose to follow this route is that they are not sufficiently skilled to create worthwhile content themselves. Remember, it's a thousand times easier to subvert security, than it is to implement - believe me, I've done both myself.

People like Geohot are the exact reason why we have draconian DRM. It doesn't matter how many checks you put in place, how many security layers you add, he will just sit there, day in day out, trying to break past it - not because he's some kind of hero, but simply because he has nothing better to do.

I am perfectly capable of thinking for myself, I don't need "educating" about the matter, and have no use for suggestions to "go outside". I know Sony don't give 2 shits about me, and believe me, the feeling is mutual. However, having worked for 18 hours developing, (anti hacking countermeasures as it happens) I think I'll decide what the fuck I do with my time. Gaming is one of the few things that actually relaxes me enough to sleep these days.

I wouldn't like to say that Anon is totally behind all this, because let's be honest -

A) Anon couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.
B) A DDOS attack would AT WORST cause PSN to run "a bit slow for a while".
C) Anon's idea of "proper hacking" is downloading the LOIC *and* using a proxy.

You will be your own undoing. Attacking cults and standing up for free (terms and conditions apply) speech is one thing. Hell, even attacking Sony is one thing. Attacking a public service provided BY a company is quite another. A few people have said "if you want to hurt Sony, attack their bottom line". You're quite right, it will hurt Sony - so what are they going to do about it? Their choices are either:

1) Give in to any and all demands of some bunch of script kiddies.
2) Improve security, and prosecute people attempting to disrupt their service.

I think I know which they will go for there.

So, anyway - you all have your little "war" with Sony if you like. God knows they deserve it, if not necessarily for this. However, I seem to remember having OtherOS, and developing for the PS3 myself, until a certain little selfish, egotistical cunt with an especially stupid screen name deemed it necessary to ruin it. But at least we all know now that Geohot is TOTALLY cool and l33t, and I think that's the main thing for me, us, and the consumer.
Anonymous 2011-04-23 18:51:59
first, the house contract analogy built directly from the point in the post it responded to, and was entirely apt to address that point

on the car analogy, I agree all the way down the line, but would point out that Anon's response was not about hacked consoles being banned from the PSN, in fact, that was repeatedly pointed to as a legitimate and necessary response to the situation (in contradistinction to the heavy-handed exercise of subpoena power and so on)

as to GeoHot, you may not like him or what he does, but as long as he's just picking apart the security systems that people like yourself develop, he's perfectly within his rights, just as he is to publish his findings (including, arguably, the software keys, given that they have been judicially determined to be too insubstantial to qualify as 'works' attracting the protection of copyright)

the RIAA, on announcing that they were dropping the case brought against Professor Edward Felten for seeking to publish his findings on the vulnerabilities of the SDMI DRM tech for Audio CDs in 2001, stated: "everyone benefits from research into the vulnerabilities of security mechanisms."

they dropped their case after significant embarrassment, with the government also agreeing that the DMCA anti-circumvention provisions would never be used against those merely exposing security flaws in copyright protection technologies (hence the Librarian of Congress' specified 'fair use' exemptions)

again, you may not like the idea of people out there working away at finding the holes in the systems you put together, but they have every bit as much right to do so as companies do to keep trying to lock down content
Anonymous   George hadn't signed the terms of service that precluded the modification. Sony's lawwers were overreaching. Same arguments failed when the iphone was unlocked from the ATT monopoly.

For those accusing anonymous, theres news as to the playstation network being down and can be seen here:

and i quote:
"As you may be aware, some customers have been unable to connect to the PlayStation Network today. This problem affects the models other than the new slim PS3.

We believe we have identified that this problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system.

Errors include:

•The date of the PS3 system may be re-set to Jan 1, 2000.
•When the user tries to sign in to the PlayStation Network, the following
message appears on the screen; “An error has occurred. You have been
signed out of PlayStation Network (8001050F)”.
•When the user tries to launch a game, the following error message appears
on the screen and the trophy data may disappear; “Failed to install
trophies. Please exit your game.”
•When the user tries to set the time and date of the system via the
Internet, the following message appears on the screen; “The current date
and time could not be obtained. (8001050F)”
•Users are not able to play back certain rental video downloaded from the
PlayStation Store before the expiration date.
We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours. In the meantime, if you have a model other than the new slim PS3, we advise that you do not use your PS3 system, as doing so may result in errors in some functionality, such as recording obtained trophies, and not being able to restore certain data.

As mentioned above, please be advised that the new slim PS3 is not affected with this error. We are doing our best to resolve the issue and do apologize for any inconvenience caused."

Anon. You've said the most recent attack on the Playstation Network was not Anon's doing as a whole. However, the group is partly to blame for the recent attack. You've stated that some Anonymous members may have acted individually which resulted in this current outage, but as they are members of Anonymous, they are representatives of Anonymous. As a group, it is your responsibility to regulate your members and their actions. A bad apple can spoil the tree, and you have a bad apple among you. It is your responsibility as a group to take action against such individuals within your group as well as take responsibility for such individuals actions. During this outage, your group has done everything it can to dodge blame, however, by not doing nothing, you are all to blame and should be ashamed of yourselves.
You'll act as a group, but point the finger at each other like little children trying to stay out of trouble with mom and dad when something goes wrong. If you want to be respected and taken seriously by the world, then you must act as a TEAM, and as a team, you must take responsibility for a team member's own individual actions.

Well, I for one am glad for two things.

a) That there are people out there living in our society willing to take great personal risks in supporting freedom of speech, the same freedoms that are slowly being eroded by legal precedent and Intellectual Property/patent ownership.

b) That I have better things to do tomorrow than sit in front of a PS3, seriously, use this rare occasion to get out into the real world, meet some real people for a change, try interaction with no latency. Deal with it, in the big scheme of things the perpetual misery of your lives will soon be resumed.

Whether or not Anons did this, the movement is rapidly becoming the single most powerful force at reversing the ever increasing encroachment on the rights of free expression of information.

Anonymous is dying   Ha, you are now more obvious then ever, and hated by the world. Won't be long until you are hunted by law. Your not fighting for freedom of speech, your fighting for the ability to steal from others and share how to do it among your friends. Then cry when that is taken away from you.
GG   Lol, no. I meant, instead of hacking gaming consoles, and hurting millions of people, they should hack things that are important, like releasing secret files on things, where govts and intel are lying to the world. Not saying them controling WMD itself.

I disagree with that. I know from the govt-intel's pov, they'll see it that way, but remember Benjamin Franklin's words on the Constitution.

Govt's and Bankers and Intel have assumed power OVER people, when they were all set-up merely to ADMINISTER. By the power they've assumed, they threaten the lives, literal lives. Whenever some bullshit happens in the world it must be exposed.

GG 2011-04-22 14:25:07
Btw, just on the whole 'freedom' thing...

Conceptually, Anon are right...if you buy a vehicle, you can dismantle it, modify it, etc.

However, the difference here is that the PS3 hardware comes with an on-going company service attached to it (the PSN). It's like if you buy a vehicle, you're also getting an on-going service to use a lane on all roadways. Those vehicles come with in-built monitors to ensure all those vehicles comply with company policy and are not using other lanes, etc.

In buying the vehicle, you're agreeing to comply to on-going checks and balances, the company releasing firmware updates to improve and remove/add features to that vehicle and the use of a lane. Not only voiding warranty when modifying the vehicle, but you become unlawful to use that lane with all the other owners of that vehicle.

By attacking the PSN, you're hurting millions of gamers and consumers. A small percentage of hackers want the right to reverse-engineer and hack the PS3, but it's at the expense of the millions of people who want to enjoy the product "as is".

If a company (Sony, Nintendo, MS, Apple, etc) want to release a product with and without certain features, that's their prerogative. A consumer who may want to be able to instal extra OS or have backward compatibility or blu-ray capability, etc, can refuse to buy the product that the wanted feature isn't supported on or that the company changed their minds on and decided to remove that feature.

As architects and financiers of that product, Sony have a right to remove these features that Anon are protesting about. It's THEIR product, not yours. It's theirs AFTER you buy it because it's an on-going service incorporating PSN.


I'd like to hear Anon's reply to that sort of argument against their philosophy.

It relates very much to freedom of information because SONY were not specifically targetting the hack itself but the dissemination of how it was done, i.e. they didn't want other people exploiting the flaws in their machine which would restrict their ability to control (and profit from) EVERYTHING that happens on the platform.

Again, if you want to live in a world where technology vendors determine everything then that's cool bro, no jailbreak, nothing, just a few major players and none of the innovation or freedom that we used to have as a fucking standard with ALL technology we owned.

In terms of freedom of information, well, ACS Law were royally buttfucked by anons for their extortion racket which was aimed at obtaining large sums of money from p2p users - many other rackets (solicitors) gave up on the idea after seeing the risks they'd have to face and we are all slightly more secure as a result.. The same may eventually apply to companies to sony, apple, who might open up their platforms and let actual some fucking innovation happen.

"i.e. they didn't want other people exploiting the flaws in their machine which would restrict their ability to control (and profit from) EVERYTHING that happens on the platform."

---That's their right to do that. They are architects and financiers of the product. You are not. Have you ever owned a business? It's no different to Facebook who constantly update their service to remove security risks. It's not an open-source product. If you created an application for the web, and you wanted to profit from it, that's your prerogative, as it is to increase security to ensure your hard work and ability was rewarded, people not stealing your work, etc. Especially if you had a patent.


Again, if you want to live in a world where technology vendors determine everything then that's cool bro, no jailbreak, nothing, just a few major players and none of the innovation or freedom that we used to have as a fucking standard with ALL technology we owned.

-----See previous comment again. If a vendor wants to create an open-source product, and another vendor wants to create a closed-source product, that's up to them. Consumer right is you can buy whichever one you want. You can also get funding and go create your own open-source console then. As a vendor, there would be no law preventing you from doing such a thing. As a vendor then doing it that way, you can lawfully hurt all the greedy for-profit vendors by having your product dominate market share. Just like how Google hurt MS with their Office suite, etc.


In terms of freedom of information, well, ACS Law were royally buttfucked by anons for their extortion racket which was aimed at obtaining large sums of money from p2p users - many other rackets (solicitors) gave up on the idea after seeing the risks they'd have to face and we are all slightly more secure as a result.. The same may eventually apply to companies to sony, apple, who might open up their platforms and let actual some fucking innovation happen.

-----The only issue I have with the vendors is them resorting to IP address intrusions etc. That unfortunately is a result tho of hacking groups who either hack just to exploit other network users (like COD cheating), or those who may have a 'higher' cause like yourselves.


To think we used to call MS the bad guys.

Fuck you.

------Why "fuck me"? I'm not The Devil. A vendor has the right to control a product it manufactures. The only way to stop them is by competing in the market place with your own open-source product. And don't tell me you wouldn't at some point then decide "hey we could make millions of dollars" you'd want to profit from inventing something and you should be able to.

Freedom of Speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. IN PRACTICE THO, the right to freedom of speech is NOT ABSOLUTE in any country and the right is commonly subject to LIMITATIONS, such as on "hate speech".

Freedom of information legislation comprises laws that guarantee ACCESS TO DATA HELD BY THE STATE. They establish a "right-to-know" LEGAL PROCESS by which REQUESTS may be made for GOVERNMENT-HELD INFORMATION, to be received freely or at minimal cost, barring standard exceptions. Also variously referred to as open records or (especially in the United States) sunshine laws, governments are also typically bound by a duty to publish and promote openness. In many countries there are constitutional guarantees for the right of access to information, but usually these are unused if specific support legislation does not exist.

Every PS3 owner to Anonymous: Fuck you and get a freakin life!
GG   In other words, Anon guys, you're playing with your dicks, wrong to think you're changing the world or promoting any sort of freedom of something. You have pent up hormones + hacking skill. Like someone said before, at 12 years of age your 'world' is gaming consoles, but you're being incredibly selfish, and hurting millions of people enjoying a freaking entertainment device. Your "war" is misplaced, incorrect.

GG 2011-04-22 15:48:06
Look, there are two things in this world, Anon Guys.

1. people who create
2. people who destroy

When people/companies create something, they are entitled to own it, control it, prevent it from being stolen and modified against their plans/wishes. Think also of artists, who create a song, book, movie, and then struggle or fight against editors or producers etc who modify their work, try to change it and these directors or writers get angry and divorce themselves from the product, rally against it, or fight a legal battle against them for doing that.

Also creators help many....they provide employment to others, many families. Like big factories in the past, when other organizations/people tried to or successfully closed them down, they hurt millions of people. Creators also provide mental well-being to many. A great song, movie, game, book allows people to enjoy something, and share in something, or help them in life in many different ways.

There are very few examples of destroyers whose destruction helped create something. You guys are destroying without offering a creative answer or step. Like I said before, go get funding and destroy the vendors you dislike by CREATING your own open-source console. That's when a destroyer has a higher purpose, is promoting something beneficial, and is helping not just hurting, especially as your hacking is ONLY hurting millions of PSN users. It won't hurt Sony and wont change any laws etc.

didnt do it my ass. do you realize your double talk?

you want to attack sony whey psn is back up, then say you didnt attack but others may attack and that attack is not your attack but it could be an internal party.. if your all one your all guilty.

Protest the protesters. every where these faggots protest send anti protesters to remove their masks and expose these faggots.

face it, you have no control over your own. and if you do have organization, then your actually involved. with all your so called skills and network you cant find out who is doing it internally and stop them from making your words sound meaningless?

You need to police yourselves. this is not a movie saying that others actions are not your own is not going to cut it.

Same way the hackers asked for donations, I say the people use their free rights to donate to the forces established to fight criminals like anonymous.

report all illegal internet activity. unmask those cowards in their masks where ever you see them.

It's not about piracy LOL. I've run linux before it was removed. It ran like crap. I ran a jailbroken ps3. none of the apps work except for piracy.

Face it, this is about piracy and xbox fangirls playing internet gangster.

Funny how these faggots get mad when people dont agree with them but its all about free speech and rights.

nothing but double talk. It's no wonder the media has been treating you like a joke since this whole sony fiasco. You all were held in such high regard. And even with psn down, its you that looks bad.

Normally, I wouldn't give a shit. But I'm a PS Plus member, so I actually PAY for my service. Then there's netflix and hulu, both things i pay for and both are not game related. I PAID MONEY FOR THIS DAMN PS3 AND I PAY MONEY FOR THESE DAMN SERVICES and I cant utilize them because apparently Anonymous took down the network, according to "Anonymous" Facebook page.

And who gives a shit about Sony? This is a consumer/business relationship. I give you money, you give me product. And like ANY product, I can do whatever I want with it as LONG AS IT DOESNT break any rules, guidelines, and laws set forth by the government or the manufacturing company. SO whoever has hate towards Sony is a piece of shit. If you ran the business, you'd do the same thing.

If you guys did it, I give you a BRAVO for being the biggest dickface on this planet and a big fuck you for interfering with my shit. Fuck with your own PS3's not mine.

Im still young,But i wonder...How did you people get so smart. Right now im trying to learn as much about computers as i can.

I am mad about the ps3 outage...But even if Anon did not do this...i want to know,how did they do this.

Im Not Annonymous 2011-04-23 04:37:02
Its called a DOS Attack. (Deniel of service). Basically they create a script to ping an address, any address, such as for instance. In fact anyone can do it using CMD

But what they do is they install that script on 1000+ computers and launch the script at the same time which basically pings the address X number of times (X Being the number of computers with the script installed)

The problem with Annonymous' Script is they had a lot of normal people, like me and you, volunteer to have the script on there computer. So as a guess there could be up to 50,000 computers infected with this script, maybe 100,000? Nobody knows. But what everyone knows is that servers are only capable of handling so many connections per second.

So if 100,000 computers hit a server at 100,000 hits per second for 60 seconds, that server would be crippled for 1 minute and has the potential to crash that server and bring the network with it.

Meanwhile, some networks have spinter groups of servers which operate different functions of the network

So say you have 5 groups, group 1 is sercurity, group 2 is PSN... and so on..

If you DOS Attack group 1, it leaves group 2 exposed and allows another attacker/ hacker to carry out his 'mission' ( Weather thats to obtain information about the network or retrieve users details)

What about old school REAL gaming? When we went out and BOUGHT video games like REAL gamers did? Waited all year for a game and skipped school to go buy it and be the first to play it. Thats how it was and thats the way it is now. So the fact that you cant get free games, shouldnt really piss you off.

One minute you guys take credit, the next you dont. I honestly dont care if you did or not. But hacking is illegal anyway you shape it, so dont do something illegal and expect no consequences.

The logic as to why Anonymous as an "organization" is not behind the most recent PSN attack is that they gain nothing from denying their role.

To put it simply, why hide what's already hidden?
Anonymous   Agreed ;)
Anonymous   Anon is trying to avoid the backlash of what they already promised they'd do, and are doing. Sony's worst outage ever happens on a holiday weekend, just coincidentally after Anon says they'll keep attacking even after the settlement? Nope, not a coincidence.

Yes that's my psn id. I am a gamer. I am also a firm supporter of ANONYMOUS. I am a US Marine. A Marine who fought for the freedom to make my own choices, to seek out whatever info I feel like. For Sony to threaten legal actions against people like me just for simply looking up a few videos on YouTube is completely Bullshit. In my eyes its no different then communism. Forcing the masses to act the way you want them to for whatever reason is bullshit, weather it be for personal gain, money, power or what have you there is no reason for it that is actually justified. To be completely honest I don't care if I'm slammed for saying any of this its the truth and my freedom of speech. For two days I've been watching the blogs on playstations sites and have heard the Bullshit crying from pussies that can't seem to pry the controller out of their hands for a couple days and spend some time with family, friends, or anything else for that matter. Yeah it sucks but get over it, read a book we don't pay for the service so chill let's watch this unfold in our front row seats.

You guys HAD a crusade one time, but you crossed the line with privacy theft, breaking a service that millions have lawfully paid for and entitled to use 24/7.

My suggestion is always the correct path to follow -- get funding and create your own open-source gaming console, fight the market share, go make millions of dollars even.
Anonymous   Meh.
DataByne 2011-04-22 18:18:42
Just as a philosophical query, are you suggesting that Anonymous take the blame for this incident? That they become the bad guy, on to whom we place our burdens and our sins? To give you someone to curse as you are forced to play Black Ops's inferior single player campaign rather than its addictive multi-player, which you deep down know to in-fact be only incrementally differentiated from Modern Warfare 2? Do you need Anonymous to be your Batman?

Ha! I'm just kidding. That would be ridiculous. You weren't suggesting any of that! ... or were you? After all, Batman follows what most would assume to be the correct path, makes millions of dollars, has fought and gained significant market share, is occasionally guilty of the odd privacy theft (shame on you Dark Knight, greater good my foot), has been known to break "things", deals with the police, is known to crusade from time to time, and has been accused of (and accepted that blame, again for his cheap whore known as "greater good") crimes for which he is indeed innocent! But that's silly, right? Right?!

Absurdity aside (unless of course, you know truly that it is in fact the case in point), the devil is in the details. Specifically, the digital devil delves deeply down desperate dregs. Sure that may be drivel, but the alliteration made you think it meant something, and that's what truly matters. Anonymous is concerned FOR your privacy, not IN your privacy. It is not in Anonymous's interest to steal users' information because Anonymous can't use it. You may not know this, but Anonymous is not a person. Anonymous cannot profit since it has no means by which to spend. Anonymous does however make a great scapegoat since, Anonymous is not a person, has no face, and it therefore cannot be absolutely proven that Anonymous IS innocent. Though, that is a fairly tyrannical manner by which to try a man, even a faceless, non-man like Anonymous.

Or you know, that Batman stuff I said earlier. That too.

GG 2011-04-22 17:56:15

A company can remove/add whatever the fuck features it wants. If Sony decides to make PSN paid subscription, that would suck, but it's THEIR choice. That too is a selling point. If Sony removes it, that's their prerogative. How people hurt Sony back for that decision is by refusing to buy their console. That's how you do it.
Anonymous   So, what if they remove the option to play online next? That's their decision? How about they remove blu ray abilities and netflix? That's ok too? How about they just stop the system from playing any games at all, and make it a multimedia machine? That's ok too? How far is too far?
GG   That's their prerogative! That'd be business suicide on their part. Why? Because consumers would cease supporting Sony, buying Sony products, buying games for Sony, devs would cease creating games for Sony's PS3, companies associated with Sony like Netflix etc would cease supporting them, Sony would fail.
Anonymous   But it's ok when its something effects others, as long as it's nothing that effects you, or developers?
GG   It's very simple. Sony can do that if they want. If they think it's bad business, hurt sales, devs, whatever, they can do it. In the end it's only hurting themselves. But it's not ok for a group to go hack and destroy it because they disagree. You disagree by a) ceasing buying that companys stuff, b) by fighting something thru legal channels, or c) by creating your own console for consumers and devs to buy, own the market place, push out the other company.
DataByne 2011-04-22 18:37:37
Actually, the courts have actually sided with the modders on this topic. Turns out, you buy, you can go all out. Granted, you may be forced to disconnect your PS3 from the internet. That last one being the real bummer, but unfortunately, the service is just that, a service that can be pulled.

I'm not supporting modding a console to avoid paying for games, mind you (game developers themselves aren't the wealthiest bunch), but rather a consumer's right to their property (implied right). Sony settled because a likely victory would have, in their eyes, given cart blanche to users to download copies.

Plus, you can make your own console. We call them PCs though.
Anonymous   Less than 1% of everyone who bought a PS3 bought it for the OtherOS feature. Everyone else like me bought it just to play games.

I support some of Anon's goals and views but not all, I agree Sony Should be punished in the long run regarding OtherOS, I do believe that GeoHotz was wrong in displaying his findings on the net and should be punished for that regardless.

I'm not saying I don't have blood on my hands, God Knows I do, I've cracked games, pirated games, movies , software, the works. Most people in here cannot deny that. But what It all boils down to is the fact that there are more important things to look at besides Sony's Transgressions on a few people's right to have something they paid for (OtherOS).

For example: Senator Patrick Leahy's COICA act threatening censorship of America In general, My biggest concern.

I'm Not saying Anon Did screw up PSN or not, there's no way to honestly tell. Anyone here who is being blinded by this rage and trying to point a finger at someone truly needs to grow up. If you can prove anon did it then stand up and show the proof otherwise just shut up and save your oxygen.

I know most of what I say here will fall on deaf ears but the truth is most of the people here are acting like ignorant sheep because they can't play a game online. I'm Not trying to troll or upset anyone, I'm looking at this from a calm rational manner.

I grew up with NES, SEGA, SNES, etc. I think I'm going to go dust those off and relive some retro memories or watch an old DVD with my wife, makes more sense than to try and throw the blame over the net like your actually going to hurt anyone digitally.

Depending on how broad your vision of your philosophy is....

Like I and others have said, you're wasting your talents hacking PSN/Sony over a freaking ability to run another OS. Remember, a creator has a legal right to control, own, and update the security of its product, and protect its patents. These consoles these days are not just stand-alone hardware, they're also tied in with on-going online services.

Sony seeking to IP ban people who look for information is wrong. But it all came about BECAUSE OF hacking groups like yourself.

I agree on some of this, but again there is no proof they actually did attack PSN this time, they have not laid claim to it, and have actually denied it.

Sony Should have no business seeing anyone's IP regardless of what they look for, That's intended to be private, unless you actually utilize those tools and they detect it on their networks there should be no reprecussions as to what people decide to look at.

I do believe that Sony SHould be able to modify the console to an extent but I Can Clearly see on my PS3's box boasting the ability have an operating system installed on my console, as well as the fact that it's more than a console it's a computer too. Sony Should not be able to remove those abilities no matter what patents or so forth that they control.
Anonymous   Anon denies it to dodge backlash. They're doing it, or a smaller group of them are. Sony's worst outage ever happens on a holiday weekend, just coincidentally after Anon says they'll keep attacking even after the settlement? Nope, not a coincidence.

Sony only removed the OS feature to protect the console's security. Further, to protect DRM. These things they're entitled to do. Again, if you guys ever own a business then you have a right to protect your income.

It's the same with your bank accounts that you want protected from theft and loss of income. It's just an analogy, but again, you guys don't own businesses etc, so everytime I say that you dont get it, why I have to use another analogy. When you create something to lawfully earn income/profit, you're entitled to protect it and make money for fuck's sake.
Anonymous   That's nonsense, all they had to do was fix the issue with otherOS, instead they found it not worth fixing and removed it. It's false advertisement. Like I said, you don't get it. The machine is no longer theirs when you own it. It is yours to do with as you please. If that kills your warranty so be it. What if they decide to stop it from playing downloaded games due to security risk? That's ok? How far is too far? Before the OtherOS was removed it was never even attempted to be hacked. There was no reason for it.
Anonymous   If you were only using it for other os why did you update? You could have not updated and you would be fine
Anonymous   Why should I have to choose between 1 function that I paid for to get another that I paid for?
Anonymous   Because you are either using the machine to play legit games without cheating, or you are using it to pirate games and cheat online. Don't BS me dude you did it to hack games and pirate software, don't give me you wanted to use linux on your box for fun, considering you must have had a PC there somewhere to hack the thing to start with. You guys are so full of shit its not funny. Admit you were cheating and now your pissed because they stopped you doing it.
Anonymous   It's a GAMING console! OtherOS was just a stupid unadvertised extra feature that almost no one cared about. They legally removed 1 stupid feature that almost no one cared about, in order to stop hacking/piracy. Then you Anon guys decided to take away a primary usage of the PS3 from all of us.
Anonymous1   So, because you don't care about it, you assume no one does? Who said it was legal? That case is still pending. Again, I am in no way affiliated with "Anonymous" I am just simply telling you and the other moron above, that you are wrong, and you have absolutely no idea what you are yappin on about. Do you even know what capabilities you could have on a PS3 with the otherOS feature? Fuck pirating and cheating. Shit is limitless when you can install your own OS. BTW, it was advertised, so maybe get your facts straight before rambling your nonsense. Maybe Anonymous did do something to fuck psn, but then again, maybe they didn't. I can tell you that many members of Anon are just as pissed as every rage poster here, I know this because randomly browsing while bored without my ps3 online, I stumbled into another anon forum (google psn search), and they were posting almost the same shit randoms are posting here.

So basically what your stating is that when I Purchased my PS3 on Launch and paid I think it was $860, Sony did not recieve the money I used to purchase the system? Wouldn't that technically be called "Income" ?

I in fact do run a business I build Custom PC's and design motherboards, chips, etc. for personal and corporate use. Business Policy Is that once something has left the store it's out of your hands, it becomes the responsibility of the consumer to maintain the product they purchased.

Now that being said let's bring patents into the picture since i see it being thrown around way too much in these threads. I have a Patent which means I legaly own the designs of the product I create, It does not mean however that I can create hidden software or known software and interfere with it's use in the privacy of your home. That's Illegal and considered invasion of privacy and property.

When I purchased my PS3 I purchased it because I wanted to have the console in my home and use all of it's core abilities i.e. OtherOS, PSN, BlueRay, Games. When Sony forced me to make a choice on what I was allowed to keep or lose I became somewhat aggrivated at the thought process behind all of it.

The Fact that Sony even went in and changed the ToS was pretty nerve racking as well, I did compare the original to the current at the time. Sony is attempting to turn into Microsoft and every other giant conglomerate out there. Still Doesn't change the fact that I love Playstation in general, I chose to update and lost the function of OtherOS, I'm still upset about it, but I'll eventually get over it.

Before you assume that no one here has or doesn't run a business think about what your saying and put some thought into it, again not trolling, just pointing out innaccuracies in your thought pattern.

Anonymous   The simple fact is no one is going to jail for hacking the PS3, (they settled the law suit) and Anon says they called off the attack. I, for one, like the fact that if you hack your PS3 you get kicked from PSN. I have played PC games for years and i'm sick of all the aim bots and wall hacks there are. Does this make any game fun? (not to me) Just beat me straight up like a man, not like some pale skinned anti social little geek in your mom's basement that has nothing better to do with his time then cheat at games. So, whether or not Anon is behind this I blame Anon. How convienent that Anon started the attack, and then get yelled at by PS3 gamers. (NOT SONY) Then they publicly say that they are stopping as to try and avoid the backlash when they take down the PSN. The only thing we did was buy a game system to play games. Why are you attacking gamers? Are you standing up for the little pepole, or just standing on us?

Creators of product have a right to update and remove/add features --- for security and other reasons. If such a company does so and loses business over it, that's their choice. Hurt Sony by not buying their stuff. But by crossing the line and waging a cyberwar, that's the wrong way about it. You're hurting millions of regular consumers just like yourselves. Many who are happy to enjoy a product "as is". Who paid for stuff to be operational 24/7 etc.

A company shouldn't be going around intruding into people's private information either. Sony going around trying to ban people for accessing information online. That's wrong. But you don't fight that wrong with another wrong -- hacking and in turn intruding into people's private information.

Sometimes what MS/Sony do to IP ban people for cheating online is fine. They're merely trying to administer their gaming network, ensuring it's a fun and fair environment for online play.

Bu you guys set all this extra nazi/communistic Sony action off when you took the battle thru a cyber war, not thru a proper legal process.
Anonymous   You are wrong. They don't. That's like saying if I buy a car with a dvd system and gps. The company who made the car has the right to come remove my dvd system because they think it posses a security threat. And leave me with nothing in return.
GG 2011-04-22 18:28:33
If the car manufacturer has legal grounds to remove the capability to run a dvd system and gps, they can do that. It will be business suicide on their part, because it'll hurt their sales. But that's their choice. And that's how consumers make them realize their ceasing to support/buy that company's product.

Or you fight them thru proper legal channels. Or, you go manufacture your own car to destroy them in the market place. All done legally and with correct measures.

But if a group of hacktivitists go out and fuck up the product for the millions of other consumers as a way to "make a stand" you're only hurting the consumers. Remember....something you guys keep ignoring....millions of consumers are very happy with the PS3 "as is". Many are paying for it and its services and have a right to enjoy those services without external hacktivists fucking it up.

With that Concept in Mind let me throw a hypothetical at you.

I sell you a Custom built PC, Built from the floor up with raw materials, I decide that it's not safe for you to use anymore because I Have noticed you gain weight and I am terrified and paranoid about the obesity state in America(Not really, Just as an example). Now Keep in mind this PC blows government PC's out of the water so to speak, you paid a lot of hard earned money in order for me to make this machine for you. How would you honestly feel if i entered your home and took the PC off your desk and walked away with it. Was I within proper rights to take the PC you paid for away because I felt it unsafe for you to get fat? Or I decided to activate a program within the system I created to fry the electrical circuits in the hardware because It was my intellectual right to do so?
Anonymous 2011-04-24 15:21:31
Your analogy sucks. You talk about buying a PC, then having your entire purchase taken away from you.

Sony did not take their ENTIRE product away from you. They legally removed 1 stupid feature that almost no one cared about. It's a GAMING console! Did you ever believe that Sony had a strong commitment to having the PS3 be a game console, + a hacker's O.S. device?

But you Anon guys did decide to take away a primary usage of the PS3 from all of us.
SpYd3R 2011-04-22 18:25:12
Again I agree with some of this, But not all.

I don't think Sony had any right to remove the features originally built into the existing consoles, they could have patched the problem just as easily as releasing the FW update that removed it.

I do hopwever agree that proper legal action would have resolved the issue better, but, truth be told as a conglomerate, Sony can, and has postponed hearings and court appointments for 10 years+ until the console and the original lawsuit was pointless to continue, (Money Is Power).

The IP banning is a good thing though, I do appreciate the hard work they do to keep the games as fair as possible for the consumers to enjoy the game as it was originally intended.

So that makes your fight against them a mute objective,unless your saying we should be able to run windows on the ps3.

If you support jailbreaking,does that mean you support online gaming cheating too?

Anonymous   If I wish to run an OS created by myself, that should be up to me (I never once mentioned linux). Jailbreaking to run an OS has nothing to do with cheating in games. Which I find pointless.
Anonymous   You might find it pointless but others use these tricks to cheat and pirate. Why should Sony have to patch every five minutes like apple does because GeoHot figures out how to bypass them. It cost money which in turn gets pushed back onto me the consumer.

Truly, you shall never taste sweeter tears of misery than those of a Nintendo fanboy (though I don't recommend the Nintendo Power forums to find them, since they only cater to the Nintendo faithful).

I have found Sony fanboy tears to be of a different nature. For one, they are laced with iron (whether this relates to guns, swords, or blood I do not know), but have a savory finish that has hints of hibiscus.

(Xbox fanboy tears are inedible. There unique taste can only be summed up with the phrase "LOL FAG!" with a disturbing aftertaste of balls being dipped in one's mouth repeatedly. For the good of all, any crying Xbox fanboy should be consoled with a new Halo game. Failing that, it is one's duty to silence them. Well, not silence them silently, after all, they have delicious screams: regret, longing, and a winning Madden play.)
SpYd3R   Just to be quite honest, as an avid gamer, I own all 3 of the consoles on the market right now, And truth be told I'm pretty sure anyone on this site is and always will be a Nintendo Fan due to the fact that most of us grew up with the console or started a gaming binge on a Nintendo System.

Until my Nintendo 64 broke last year, it got as much play as my Wii, 360, and PC. I don't play my Wii so much ever since I got a new TV (I keep forgetting to get some clay to stick the sensor on top) but I can play the Virtual Console, GameCube games, Brawl, and Monster Hunter Tri since they don't need the pointer.

I agree that many old school gamers are Nintendo fanboys at heart (since Atari and Sega aren't really options any longer), but I think that if we can't laugh at ourselves then we've sorta missed the point of gaming.

Your analogy with your business selling chips is incorrectly applied.

The PS3 is not just a stand-alone hardware, like your chip business is. The PS3 is an on-going service. There are many analogies like....

Mozilla who create Firefox, or any company that creates a software, like Adobe with CS. They constantly update and upgrade the product. In adobe's case, they're out to stop piracy which is a threat to their income/profit. CS might be very expensive, but it's not right for people to hack it as a way to protest. Adobe is a creator, and has thousands of staff, it's providing employment to many families, and think about all the people who designed it, they should be rewarded for such a great software.

There are laws preventing people from hacking it, reverse engineering it even to re-sell it as their own, etc etc. All these kinds of laws are there to protect the creators, as they should be.

Firefox is free etc etc, but it's the same principle. You receive a product that is constantly being update, having features removed/added, security fixes etc etc. When at one time you COULD do something, you cant later when updating to the newest version.

In your chip business. Youre just selling the chip and that's it. Once the product goes out the door, that's your business finished. That's why you're not on the same page here. But if your business was something like a store that sells downloadable movies to people on a device they first buy from you, (for instance), then that's more like it. Because youre selling the device itself AND that device's very purpose is to provide online content on-going. So if you then start seeing people pirating your business, hurting your sales, people finding a way to bypass your network measures and downloading content free, having people distribute their membership details around allowing thousands to log in and download for free, then you have every right, especially in your terms of use policy, to crack down and update your device and services to protect your income.
SpYd3R 2011-04-22 19:06:22
I don't think you understand the full process of my business. As a custom board and computer chip designer I also have to make software that runs that hardware or it's unusable, Now with that in mind, I have to update that software if any bugs or corruption occurs to patch the issue,

Same concept as Sony, or FireFox in your example. I have to constantly maintain the equipment I produce in order for my business to be effective, a better example to understand would be the PC's Boot Process(I've had coffee I'm awake now :) ), I have to design a program to take full advantage of the hardware that I have produced as well as it to run an OS I designed or any current, which means sending signals to the varying equipment in the PC, say There's a loophole in that program that would allow you to see some of the hrdware's technology that I have a patent on and you would like to use it to create your own system, If I had found out about the issue yes I own the patent I can change the programming anytime I like, But I would not remove the Program because it would make the product inferior to what it was originally designed for.

Say I halved the PC's performance by doing so because I didn't want you to get to patented secrets, was it right to make your "supercomputer" inferior to a Dell Brand PC? even though you could have spent 5 times less on a different computer without having to deal with the issue?
GG 2011-04-22 19:13:23

Thing is, if you wanted to remove a program/feature from your business service, you are legally entitled to. Yes or no? Whether you do it or not, is up to you. And you would know the risk to do so was an unhappy consumer base. Loss of sales. That's your choice.

But it in no way entitles all your consumers to go and hack your actual business, and disrupt services for all the other consumers of your business who paid for it and services. You're going to have many consumers who don't care about that program/feature you removed, happy with the product.

Again, you would NOT want some hackitivist group out there to go and destroy your business. Hack into your account details, hack your network, hack your consumers, etc. You'd go and file a lawsuit against them.

Instead, the unhappy consumer base of yours, should go and fight your business decision in the appropriate either suing you and your company for failing to provide services/features that were promised.....or by conducting a boycott of your business and its products with thousands of other disgruntled consumers (to force you to re-instal the removed feature)....or by setting up their own rival company offering the same feature/product to hurt their market share as payback.

Speaking on the PS Blog in what will no doubt be a deeply embarrassing admission, SCEA comms head Patrick Seybold said Sony made the decision to take PSN offline after it was hacked earlier this week.
“An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services,” he said.
“In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th.

I never disagreed on the fact that I would or could remove features, but if i advertise a feature of something i create and you purchase the product did you did you not intend to use all advertised features of said product?

Again I agree with you that no one should technically hack someones property to destroy a business but also keep in mind that there's not much you or I can do about the situation. I Agree legal actions should be ensued to make sure appropriate actions are taken and those are still in the mix for Sony, Only issue is, Sony is pushing the dates back, and changing documentation around to make themselves in the right or lessen the damage.

While I agree that attacking them is not only wrong but also illegal and morally wrong (Based upon my own personal morals) Action does need to be taken to the extreme sometimes to get results, for example, the Human Race, everytime we have a war our technology advances extremely quickly, to compensate for lack thereof or to get the upper hand.

I appreciate the open forum, and likewise enjoy(ed) the civil and intelligent debate.

Regardless of who's wrong or right, overall or in many little topics within, it's always good to have open intelligent debate, and I personally can admit when I'm wrong about something and learn new things etc.

I go back to the same thing I keep saying as my main points......not good to hack, hurt consumers, better appropriate methods are suing Sony itself, creating own console, or just keep up the protests/boycotts of Sony product. I dont want anyone to go to jail over all this.

Anyone who knows me knows im very anti-authority, i support the little guy. Sony has done many bad things like privacy intrusion, attempting to ban people for accessing free information online etc. MS and many other big corps all display the same evils etc etc.

If youre gonna hack (which is illegal) at least do something more important, like exposing possible BS like 911, WMD, JFK, and many other political/banking/intel type things. Those are the really evil forces out there.

Sony is just a company trying to protect itself, protect it's income. Same with MS, Apple, Adobe, etc. They do evil corporate things. But in the main, it's a thing providing entertainment (gaming). All this was over the Instal Other OS. I dont know the full ins-and-outs of it all, but that's what started it. It's just some crappy feature anyway. It never was gonna be PC-like anyway. If Sony removed it for security and profit reasons, at least understand that it was legitimate of them to do so. Unpopular to many/some, but legitimate. Creators should always be protected for their hard work, income.

Sony or any other Coorporation may have the rights to change the software on our consoles, but it doesn't make it right for them to do so.

I chose to post the screen name I use for all of my other many accounts and so forth so I wouldn't be labelled as an anon member because I am not, In all reality My morals are too high to do what these folks are doing, I do agree with some of there tactics and arguments, peacably boycotting and protesting is well within our rights and so is freedom of speech.

In my book, Anon works for the greater good, they always have, sometimes there's mess-ups, but fuck, who doesn't mess up. When I tie my shoes, sometimes the loop gets caught between my fingers, shit, that's a mess-up. All I'm saying is even if Anon did this, which they didn't. then wouldn't they say so. They don't lie, that'd be like corruption? But they aren't corrupt, look at what they have done for us the past years, most of which arose awareness.

Gain some knowledge b4 you try to seem smart it makes you look very asinine(that means foolish).
Anonymous1   OK, but what the fuck does that have to do with using your own OS, which is what PS3 was advertised to have as a selling point?
Anonymous   Mistakes, like I tied my shoe wrong and have to put in the extra 5 seconds to correct it. Sony realized that if you had your own free will, greed would put you in the way of playing games, ripping games, cheating games. What GeoHot did was nothing but a personal thing, he went wrong when he advertised his jailbreak to the masses. That is why Sony took him to court. They want to protect their developers, but in doing so it's a love hate relationship. On one hand you have gamers who just want to play games, on the other it's gamers who want to use Linex to use the PS3 as a personal computer, hey, if I were as smart as GeoHot, I'd want to use my PS3 as a PC too. But I digress Sony has rights to it's own creations no harm in that, and what I think GeoHot was trying to accomplish was the freedom to do what you want with a PC which is actually what the PS3 is, I mean was.
ND 2011-04-22 20:08:50
This isnt just effecting gamers. Its effecting studios who develop for the PS3.

Since all multiplayer gameplay/diagnostics/accounts/testing is tied to the PSN we cannot work on any aspects of multiplayer at my studio. With E3 right around the corner and the need to this ready/fixed/and polished losing days of being able to work on these features just means more late nights and more days that will require coming in on the weekend to meet our deadlines.

The ones really getting screwed over by this are the Sony Media Network Solutions (the team who develops new database platforms for the PSN and the team that helped develop the PSN while they were still under the Sony Online Entertainment umbrella) Have all had there weekends officially canceled and are being requested to come in to try and bring the Network back online and secure it from future attacks for the 70 million users who did nothing wrong.

Anon might not have done this attack, and then again they might have. Makes no different. They started this shit storm and it was only a matter of time before someone within them or outside of them went too far.

Can someone tell me where on this site the press release is that plans an attack against PSN? There was a press release stating that the DDOSs were not continuing (the same one that announced the IRL protest, I think), it must be after that one.

It MUST be there somewhere, cuz anon OBVIOUSLY did it

There is no such press release on this site, some anons MAY have done this but they are not the anons here. It does not seem that there is a good reason to be angry at anons here when they did not do it.

I see that the two most probable explanations for this are:
1) Some anons, but not the anons at AnonNews, were attacking PSN after being outraged at GeoHotz being arrested over running OtherOS on the PS3. The actions of a few do not speak for the whole, and these few anons do not automatically make Anonymous evil.
2) Alternatively, this might just be a small technical problem, or some server maintenance (Sony said that there was an external intrusion, so who knows)

So Sonyfags, stop commenting here blaming and attacking Anonymous, and maybe read up more on what's going on, or better yet, just be patient, the PSN is probably going to be back up soon.with (maybe) a formal explanation by Sony. Understand that this is not the direct actions of Anonymous and stop attacking people on AnonNews.

(Not that anybody will listen to me, just continue, don't mind me, just keep on flaming, whatever, I gave my two cents, and I'm done here)

Think about it if sony be youre firm and you giva away a lot of money to produce that shit and sombody jailbraeks it wouldn´t you protect youre investments? I think i would and everybody whos honorst in here say the same. Or have you money which you can give as a gift?

Surely I should have the right to use an item I purchased without the influence of a third party trying to force their views onto the world?

On another note, one user mentioned having the right to 'modify a car, was the same as the right to modify a PS3'. Well when I modify my car it doesn't end up affecting the performance and enjoyment of other peoples cars does it.

If even one of Anonymous has caused the outage, then ALL of you are responsible. You cannot wash your hands with the excuse that '..the actions of a few do not reflect the majority..'

Next time Anonymous or any associated group decide to have a public display or protest, I for one will visit them in person to take out my frustrations, wankers.

"You cannot wash your hands with the excuse that '..the actions of a few do not reflect the majority..'"

It is exactly this that negates Anonymous' position. Their small group should not affect the PSN usage of the many. However many there are in Anon, their views DO NOT reflect the views of the majority of the 70million PSN users.

Another thing about Anon that is pretty poor, is how they go about holier than thou, talking down to the consumers, belittling them, telling them to shut the fuck up, fuck you, fuck off, and persisting with their efforts without listening to the consumer base.

Sony is a creator and has every right to remove the OS feature. For security and/or profit reasons and/or viability reasons. And every right to protect themselves and their product from hackers.

On top of that, the OS feature was stupid anyway, and better off being removed. And even if it's sad to see it go, it's just a fucking instal other OS feature anyway. it's a fucking gaming console for fucks sake. Leave it be.

Of the 75 million PSN members, how many are Anon? How many are pissed off about Instal Other OS? There's like 0.01% of the 75M deciding upon themselves to destroy something that the vast majority of consumers are happy with.

You are not representing the 75M. Did you get a petition from 75% of them agreeing with your cause and condoning the actions you've done? Then you have are in the wrong to speak for 75M.

Fight your war against Sony via the legal system. If you won't because you dont have the funds and/or don't think you can win, then suck it up and deal with it.

Sony doing what it can to guard against hackers is for the benefit of the 75M.....removing online cheaters in games, protecting all the private information and credit card details.
Anonymous   The only reason why Sony shut down their servers was to embed their new codes to the security system to prevent the hacking of their system again. Yeah, blame Anon for helping prevent any future credit thefts that you would see after a real hack happened. Money being used on your card, money being taken from your bank account, ect...

They're full of shit too.
They admitted their agendas earlier in this thread, and along the way when replying to people.

It's all about instal other OS feature, and as an extension of that, a way to circumvent DRM, so they can pirate. Or as they put it, "allowing ingenuity of people to create stuff".

The PS3 is not an open-source technology. Sony created it to make income from it, as too all their business partners (games devs, netflix, etc etc). If you guys want to make software then go create a company, make software, and try to sell it thru the PSN and XBL services legitimately.

The internet is not being stolen, civil rights are not being stolen. All that rhetoric is utter BS and you all know it.

Everyone had the choice to accept the latest firmware and lose the OS feature, and by doing so, complying to terms of use that they'd lose online functionality. Or they could ignore the firmware updates to be able to keep the OS feature. Sony did this to fix security flaws, prevent online cheating, and to protect DRM. They have every right to do that.

Geohotz/Anon should just keep their existing OS PS3's and buy a new one for gaming online. And leave the 75 million happy PSN users alone.

Anonymous   why support someone that makes it easier for people to ruin online gaming?
GG 2011-04-22 22:44:38
Proof of that is what came about because of Geohotz hacking of the only opened the door to piracy.

In terms of PS3. the same happening would mean piracy and also unending cheaters online. It has NOTHING to do with geohotz personally crying that he cant run linux on a computer. As he has a computer with linux on it. Sony once had that vision, but rightfully changed it (removing OS) to protect against piracy, cheating, etc. So go buy a PC geohotz/anon, and run your linux homebrew there and accept the PS3 for what it is now - a gaming/multimedia entertainment unit.

Cracking the PSN network is no difficult feat. Back in the day I would leave my door unlocked when out and about. And breaking into my pad was no difficult feat either. Now I have more precautions but still do not consider it to be difficult to crack into to, it is because I have prepared myself against the honest opponent. Be the Samurai warrior. Just because you can do a thing doesn't necessarily make it so.
For those that have an eye for detail can see my door is now no different than before but I choose to believe there is more good than naught be told.

This battle over the PSN is pointless. Yes, someone is being wrongly accused of modification of something he has purchased, but interfering with other people's daily ritual is unacceptable. Claiming you're doing this for people's rights is comical, seeing how PSN will be down for a whole two-three days (OMG PLEASE NO), and the subscription fee to the PSN is... free. Why doesn't Anon waste their useless, unimportant, wannabe apart of an underground society which is similar to that of fight club; but really, is nothing but a internet forum, time and fight for something worthwhile. Fight the corruption in our government, or do something altruistic, like help the poor - oh wait, you guys don't do anything nice, because you all feel like you matter to this world when you don't follow societies norms, and cause constant grief.

You are making yourself an awful lot of ennemies there, dear anons. Is it really worth it? What are you trying to achive with this anyway ?

Geohots case is settled. Why continue to attack sony, no, why continue to harm millions of innocent ?

People who enjoy PSN are not your ennemies, they might even never have heard of geohot and what he did. So why harm them ?

When you attacked Visa and Mastercard (for greater goals than those of OPsony) you didn't aim for their services, only for the front pages. You didn't have to hurt innocent before to reach your goals. Why start now just to defend some hacker that got owned?

What you are doing now is what Kefka did to Doma castle in FF6
If you believe that you should attack Sony then please do this instead of PSN. Gamers have nothing to do with Sony's policies or actions.
If you want rights to be respected please start by respecting the rights of others.

Standing with our backs
To a wall of desperation,

Eyes burning with tears,
Our minds seeking some direction.

Peering through a wall
Of illusions and shattered dreams,

Enclosed in self-made prisons,
Screaming silent screams.

So caught up are we
In our petty little cells,

Concerned with only "me,"
Unable to break the spells.

Unable to realize
It's we who are the makers,

We who crafted each wall,
We who are the breakers.

Unable to understand,
Unable to simply see,

Be of the world and trapped,
Or of the spirit and free.

Anonymous   Sony and it's business partners deserve to turn a profit on their copyrighted products and services, thus enabling them to continue doing so at the simultaneous expense and benefit of self aware individuals choosing to partake, if at any time I do not agree with Sony and affiliates terms and conditions I simply choose to discontinue any support for such parties in future and align my loyalties else where. There is no time to get ahead while too busy getting even, especially as we entered into this agreement through choice. Again having the ability to do a thing does not necessarily make it so, when the beginning began with a choice of agreement. Interpretations aside within current systems of economics there simply is no room for such behavior. Opting to forcibly excite change against the will of consciousness and self awareness is in itself a crime against freedom. It maybe that one day such a maturity of spirit will be adopted and is a characteristic of purpose worth exploring, but not at the cost of choice. I chose to agree to abide by the rules of my agreement with Sony when signing up on the PSN, it is that simple. Man can be so much more than just a reactionary animal. In this case minds and opinions were changed but sadly agreements were forgotten.

Thank you. I've been waiting for someone to make this point.

The problem with this concept is it depends on which side you are on.

Anon's side thinks they are the Non-Nazi's.

In my opinion Anon IS THE NAZI's, not the other way around. The problem is your perspective. From what I have seen and experienced of Anon, they choose to block other's freedoms (DDOS attacks) without considering that they are being hypocritical.

It is painfully obvious from this thread that Anon does not get it; they cannot understand simple logic or complex concepts; they are LEMMINGS:

From the wikipedia entry on lemmings:

Because of their association with this odd behavior, lemming suicide is a frequently used metaphor in reference to people who go along unquestioningly with popular opinion, with potentially dangerous or fatal consequences. This metaphor is seen many times in popular culture, such as in the video game Lemmings, and in episodes of Red Dwarf and Adult Swim's show Robot Chicken. The Blink 182 song "Lemmings" also uses this metaphor as does the 1973 stage show National Lampoon's Lemmings starring John Belushi and mocking post-Woodstock group-think.

So once again:

Anonymous = LEMMINGS

I understand both sides; money spent on a console that doesn't know how to protect their shit is infuriating, and hackers don't know how much damage they cause. On the other hand, people need to get lives and stop sitting around playing games. But the problem is, this is all generalization. You ASSUME people are upset because they have nothing better to do. You ASSUME Anon hacked PSN because they have nothing better to do. If you thing this is an apocolyptic sign from the gods, (Whoever you believe in, it doesn't matter at this point) then tell me, has it done any good? People are still bitching that their PSN is down, and it sucks. Hard-earned money spent on games that aren't even working properly because of a 'system intrusion' isn't the happiest news to wake up to. I myself am upset about it, but I have other things to do, as do most other people. No one does shit like this because there's nothing better to do with their lives. They're doing it for a purpose, to prove a point. I'm not saying I agree with the shit they did, or even why for that matter (I would beat the shit out of one them if I wanted to waste my time on it) but they at least had a *reason* to. Everyone calm down, this isn't a sign that humans need to get off their asses; no matter what you do, people will do what they want. If you want to stay at home, go ahead. If you want to go out, go ahead. Worry about your own life, not someone elses. It's none of your business what others want to do with their time.

this is terrible cause. i lost respect anonymous. all that great build up just to throw it away on something stupid.

anonymous is fooling all of you, they are trying to get more and more people to protect themselves not you. sony wasn't going to take sue those people that visited the page but if one of those people is a hacker and has left a footprint then that person can be found.

the marine above that posted is only looking it with his eyes half opened.. for one thing he should know better.

and if he were sent in to a location to find someone with a bomb he might have to search everyone to find the one offender. is he taking peoples rights or just sifting through the people to find the one criminal? samething sony was doing.

I have family in the military and your comment was saddening to hear.

i dont know about everyone else but i ran linx and the jailbreak. its only good use is piracy. every other codec player runs like shit.

ask them why they haven't hacked the 360? they still cant get apps and software to run on it, but they can play pirated games online.

Not sure if the anon assholes pay attention but most of the consensus is that the majority of the ps3 community are older gamers, over 30 with jobs and families not college kids like the 360 community.

Anonymous 2011-04-23 14:13:12
you will not be sued by the manufacturer of the spray paint, the car or the guitar, you will be punished by the state for your criminal conduct

if you use your PS3 to beat somebody to death, then you're right, there's no difference, but cracking anti-circumvention measures is not, in itself illegal (being a 'fair use' exception specified by the Librarian of Congress), nor is sharing that information with the world (Felten v RIAA) - only when you actually make an infringing copy are legal rights implicated, and these are not crimes, but civil wrongs
Famous Shamus 2011-04-25 11:57:07
Wow first good point made since the OP.

I want to get this right since there is a bit of an issue here. The masses liken the moded car (PS3) to the road (PSN) but what you are saying is that you have the right to mod the PS3 because Sony does not own the road (internet for those not following) and that they have used their preceived ownership of the internet to influence US law to side with them on a case that breaks our (collective) rights to free information. Am I close?
Anonymous 2011-04-26 01:36:26
no, that's not it - the issue isn't about whether hacked consoles can go on the PSN (which is a lega lmatter only insofar as it is a breach of a private agreement)

the point I'm making is that it is not illegal to modify your console, nor to figure out how to do so, nor to publish details of how to do so - all of these things are protected by law, because the content-locking mechanisms prevent not only copyright infringement, they also prevent making 'fair use' of copyright works (this is why Sony lost their modchip case in Australia)

But whoever did it had no right in doing that for some personal bullshit that they *think* they're entitled to. When their little "war" affects others who purchased a gaming console, computer, or some other device who don't give a shit (like me), it becomes my business.
So whoever did this and thought they won some "battle", think again, you just pissed off a lot of people and now you just single handily made the hacking/modding community look a lot worse than they actually are.

The world is fully of corrupt governments and corporations and you target a company that was big in the 80s and 90s and has been in terminal decline since and might not even make it to the end of the decade the way it is going.

Go after the Chinese/Iran government, go after Haliburton, or the oil companies. Use your talent to take down a big target not some piece of shit company.

Anonymous   Guys I think some of you are missing the point. Just take a few minutes to think about this. If Sony had their way, all that viewed GeoHot’s YouTube channel and his website would have felt the fallout from Sony. It’s highly possible that Sony would have banned you from PSN. Now is that justified, just by (looking) at a website. Of course it isn’t. I myself looked at that video just to see what all the fuss was about, if Sony and the U.S legal system had their wish I would have been punished for that. Anonymous made a statement, it may have not been what we all wanted but it pushed home a point. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not defending Anonymous by any means. I just feel that Sony was wrong in trying to obtain and (use) the I.P addresses on all who looked at that video or website. And the U.S legal system for granting them access. It simply isn’t right to punish people like that in that way.

Anonymous   Of course you guys didn't do it... but why not? I mean, when Sony has completely rebuilt the entire network, why not show them you still have the power to destroy them? Make it a challenge.
PepperJacked   Really guys, I think you just pissed 75 million people off, I don't sit on my ass every hour playing a game but after a hard day at work I want to relax for an hour on my game and you have to go and do some bull shit like this,,, really pisses me off of how selfish this organazation is......Probably not your brightest move as a hacker,,,,,,,,
UrDaysR#D   The funny part is how Anonymous everyone who post's here and on the website believe they are. Anonymous members should fear the .gov presence. Proxies, Shell accounts, and other obfuscation techniques are a joke if you stir the nest. I'm guessing that when this settles you will have sufficiently stirred the nest and you will follow the road of Shadow Market. Cheers
