Anonymous declares war on Sony

Seriously? In an unexpected turn in the entire hacking fiasco of the PlayStation 3 and Geohot, the infamous hacking group “Anonymous” is now apparently getting involved because they don’t like the way Sony has been handling the situation. While many of you are probably aware of this group, these are the same guys that rightfully went after the Church of Scientology and the way they handle themselves as well.

Anonymous has sent out a warning and letter to Sony to prepare for the war they created and that they’re going to regret ever trying to limit the release of information to millions worldwide like Geohot was attempting to release.

“Congratulations, Sony. You now have now received the undivided attention of Anonymous. Your recent legal action against our follow hackers, Geohot and Graf_Chokolo, has not only alarmed us, it has been deemed wholly unforgivable.

“You have now abused the judicial system in an attempt to censor information on how your products work. You have victimised your own customers merely for possessing and sharing information, and continue to target every person who seeks this information. In doing so you have violated the privacy of thousands. This is the information they were willing to teach the world for free. The very same information you wish to suppress for sake of corporate greed and complete control of the users.

“Now you will experience the wrath of Anonymous. You saw a hornets nest, and stuck your penises in it. You must face the consequences of your actions, Anonymous style.

“Knowledge is Free. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not Forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.”

Frankly, I chuckled when I originally read this because, to be honest, this is all getting out of hand. Are these guys serious about this? They’re going to waste time on something as little as homebrew on the PlayStation 3? Come on guys. You’re not making a statement or changing the world by doing anything about this situation whatsoever.

This entire fiasco needs to end soon as it’s getting out of hand and becoming a joke more than anything. However, if Anonymous does plan on taking care of Sony, we can expect a ton of leaked information about upcoming games in the near future — I’m sure.

  1. Anyone could have sent that.

  2. This could get ugly, if this is indeed the true A-Non group. Time will tell, but if there ends up being some unexpected PSN downtime due to a Sony-side server error I would not be surprised. It took one of these guys less than a minute to trash the Church of Scientology’s entire webpage remotely… I don’t want to know what a provoked group of these guys is capable of.

  3. Yeah, lets take on a multibillion dollar internatoinal corporation with a threatening letter. That wont end badly at all…

  4. Quite possibly the dumbest thing I’ve read all day.

  5. I wonder where this people were when the infamous RROD fail rate ramped up! Kinda fishy! Wonder if M$ have anything to do with this expecifically. After seeing how they made the 360 wouldnt surprise me at all!

  6. im asuming that whith saying “information” he is refering to the sistem codes for the ps3, in this case the information was misused and in time will deal a loot of financial and market damage to sony, to playstation dewelopers and especialy to the honest consumers who unlike hackers will hawe to lituraly pay for the price of the financial struck that Anonymous has caused to sonys part of the gaming industry
    long story short: to me, Anonymous seems to be realy stupid for finking that theire doing the right thing, and not hurting the gaming industry
