    A new posting on the official home of Anonymous Activism asks for a "call to arms" against the Sony Corporation.

    Here is an excerpt:

    They took down a whole pseudo-religion, they can take down a corporation that has some power over Google Inc.

    Right?

    I really can't believe that it isn't a breach of the data protection act. I actually hate Sony, I almost want to throw my PS3 up the wall, but I won't 'cause I love it. I mean it's not like they can achieve anything with these IP addresses, if the justice system is still intact then we were committing no crime by visiting the site and/or watching the video.

    Kind of off topic to the whole god damn thread!

    Sony better fix up, or a few years down the line, people will talk about a company that once used to make consoles.

    Yeah, Sony had better fix up their image, or one day people will be telling their kids about a company that bitchfitted whenever things didn't go their way and how there's a life lesson in that.

    "Anonymous Vs. Sony"? What is this the United States Supreme Court? [​IMG] But, seriously, I hope this works itself out in a positive manner.

    Took down Scientology?

    http://www.scientology.org/
    Oh yeah.. REAL down.


    Sorry, but they didn't do jack shit to Scientology.
    They protested wearing stupid masks and caused a headache for a little bit, then stopped. They are not heroes, they are not protectors, they are not defenders of anything. They are 12 year olds who jerk off to dickgirl porn in their moms basements.

    Lulz... Sony protecting their intellectual property now equates to them throwing a bitchfit. [​IMG]

    This whole thing is hilarious, especially considering all Sony is using the information to do is find out how far the hack spread so they can work out whether to hold the case in New Jersey or San Fransico. But the one thing that's even funnier is that it's perfectly fine for people to hack PSN and screw the PS3 as much as they like, but the second Sony actually does something about it every 13 year old on the internet bands together to try to bring down the big meany of a company.

    But this is fine, please continue. If Sony leaves the gaming market, then that just means every third party developer out there will stop making games because selling their products on the 360 alone isn't profitable enough. Oh, and of course every developer that worked for Sony would go out of business too. But of course, all of this is for a good cause. What happens to the gaming market is irrelevant so long as you guys get your homebrew.
