    It seems to have become a trend due to the prev hack and initially i dont think it was necessary to do something like this. When will hackers stop?

    Away from civilization.
    Someone doesn't want people playing video games.

    Not very anonymous. Probably a bunch of skiddies (so maybe anon, but smarting up a bit, false trails?). I really, seriously, extremely doubt they got anywhere near any source code.

    1. No way it's anonymous, the fact that it's signed would pretty much defeat the meaning of the word.
    2. If they're stupid enough to keep employee personal data and source code on the same server, may God have mercy on their souls.

    The article states that the group itself is confused and infighting, though I don't know how much of that is playing up the situation to produce a bigger sense of threat for customers.

    This whole thing with anonymous groups attacking video game companies is getting out of hand. This wasn't even a provoked attack for God's sakes.

    Didn't one of the mods hack/shut off access to the networks? That was cool, maybe he was paid by Sony to do that after the greatannoying hacking of PSN. That's what my mum said, though she has NO experience in gaming/hacking/law.

    Do your research, Annon doesn't just target game companies.

    the fact there is 1337 just shows how of a child these group of people are.

    seriously this is just plain stealing and disruption.

    Away from you.
    IT WASN'T ANONYMOUS.

    For one, it's signed, for two, it even says where to check out their IRC chan.

    That defeats the whole meaning of "ANONYMOUS".
