This is not cool you guys, really they are anoying everyone not just sony. If users want to jailbreak thats their own thing, but screwing with everyone is not fun or cool, this group doesn't respect others and thats why they fail hard. I'm not happy about this.
While I agree that Sony can shove the Move controllers up their rear, what the group did was not right. It does not really help anyone, all it does it is giving more bad names to hackers, and in this case, people who hacks/want to hack PS3.
As i thought... NO PSN problems... All my friends that i called (throughout the Netherlands and Belgium have no problems.)
Such a pathetic action - if I didn't come on the internet last night to actually find out this was happening I wouldn't have even known due to how insignificant the attacks were, signed into PSN all fine.
Sony shrugged it off easily. Anon are pathetic. As are there supporters.
You really don't know who anonymous is/are, do you...? just one small tip: they've hacked a cybersecurity company that works for NSA.
although i do not own a ps3, i've been checking this forum since July last year when all this started, and looking at it from my non-ps3 user perspective, i would NEVER buy a ps3 nowadays because the way sony is behaving. It's a pitty that ps3 users must suffer for a little bit but in war, there's always casualties and this war is for a bigger good...for all of us... for all kind of products, not just ps3/sony.

This is quite a fabrication. I usually have to burn quite a few DVD's when they get minor scratches (since my PS3 cannot handle scratched DVD's without constant skipping and freezing) and I have never had this problem. Although I do strip all copyright protection, so perhaps a straight clone might have these issues. But cleaned ISO's have always worked fine for me on my fully updated PS3.
good, bad, bah, look, i know it's a bummer to go and use something only to find you can't. people want to use psn. oh no, temporarily out of service, ugh; well, people also wanted to use other os... see where i'm going?
anyway, my dose sense in the matter is; these lawsuits need global attention as the results are determining a great deal of what happens online for everybody. it's good to be informed with these matters if only to see the shape of things to come.
you can bet any company that loses money due to piracy online is watching all this sony stuff go down with vested interest. information is at stake here, and privacy a casualty, and still no one is paying it the attention it deserves, even when that's the direction the entire world is moving in. i don't wish anything i'll upon anyone, but i believe the louder this story gets the better.
