Hey guys, 
 
I have been trying to log into PSN all day and have been having a hell of a time doing it. This morning it was fine for a few hours then all of a sudden it went down on me again.  Is anyone else having these issues?
People on the Sony Forums are saying it's because they  are being targeted by a hacking group, I have no idea if any of that is true or not so take it with a grain of salt.
 
Update: 04/06/2011  - It seems that PSN may have been affected by the Group anonymous after all
 "Shortly after the announcement, users began reporting server instability for the PlayStation Network and site outages for PlayStation.com and the PlayStation Blog. Today, Sony acknowledged these technical issues, indicating that these problems may indeed be due to an attack on its systems. "

They are being hacked.  Sony is just  butthurt about Anon on the attack.  Sony's fault, so I'm all for it.

Ya, I thought it sounded kind of fishy, I guess there is a chance that it's just a coincidence.  I'm just glad I can log back in now so I can rip it up in Borderlands , Been trying to play the game all day.

Yeah, Sony angered Anonymous and are supposedly now under attack by them. It may just be maintenance. Maybe not. Honestly, I think attacking PSN isn't where Anon should focus if it is them. Ends up hurting innocent people more than it does Sony.

Yeah. If they are trying to drum up support, pissing off thousands (millions?) of gamers probably isn't the way to go.

The thing that pisses me off the most is that it's still harder to pirate PS3 games than it is for other consoles.  Sony needs to nut the fuck up, be proud that their console is the longest to go without piracy.   
 
The fucking US Military bought PS3s just for the Linux Support.  That's how important Other OS was for people.  It's Sony's own fault and I don't give a flying fuck if people can't use PSN for the coming days and/or months.  It's Sony's own damn fault for having too much pride.  You don't see MS or Nintendo or even Apple crying like a bitch with their devices being hacked.  Hell, the fucking 4.3.1 jailbreak just hit according to Tested.com.   
 
It's Sony fault.  Don't have pity for them.

I dunno man, in the long run if they create enough problems and press about bad security it could do some real damage to the Playstation brand.
Chip away at that reputation enough and before you know it you got a bunch of people saying "Playstation? Isn't that the one with all the security problems?".

Wait, so if they are doing this because Sony have allegedly halted the 'free flow of information', then why in the fuck haven't they started attacking China? Or Cuba? Sony removing a small insignificant piece of information that they feel harms their products is pretty fucking small in comparison.

@AlexW00d: They already target corporations, Scientology, faggots on U-Tube, and other people who deserve it.  Sony fucked up big, and I have no problem with Anon finally getting on with giving Sony something to really cry about. 
 
MS, Nintendo, Apple, and Google never bitched when their stuff got hacked.  But Sony is apparently above all of them, fuck their elitism.  They went too far with hackers on the PS3.

Microsoft has sued console and controller modders. 
 
Nintendo has repetitively tried to take down products like R4 carts from being distributed. 
 
Apple has filed complaints to the US patent office about the legality of jailbreaking. 
 
Google hasn't really taken a stance against any type of piracy/hacking.  Mostly because use of their services by any means still gives them access to any public information that your computer will share. 
----- 
Let's not praise these hackers as some idealistic heroes looking out for our rights.  The reason why they are attacking PSN (as oppose to just disrupting their business network infrastructure) is because consumers are the ones who get fucked.  Nothing would happen if they just took down the means by which Sony employees do their job (aside from desk jockeys complaining about how they can't send their TPS reports).  Make PSN unavailable though, and now you have a mass amount of consumers being pissed about how their are not getting any service.  These hackers are making an inconvenience to me for what?  So I can complain about how all this wouldn't happen if Geohotz wasn't facing a lawsuit?  I don't give two shits about that guy.  If Sony said that demo downloads would be 50% faster if they powered their servers with Geohotz's blood, I would be all for it.
 
So don't fall for this crap.  These people are making things a hassle for you so that you can do the work of demanding Geohotz's freedom to hack the PS3.  The guy could hack away at any Sony product for all I care, that is until it actually fucks me over.

I'd agree with MS, Apple, and Google.  I'd definitely disagree with Nintendo and the R4 cart situation.  There were police raids happening to seize R4 carts from distribution centers. 
 
And to what extent Sony is going through to keep their services from getting hacked is of no concern to me.  If one were pissed off at Sony, then screw Sony over.  Don't screw me over because I use their service.

I dont want people fucking up my source of entertainment and claiming they are doing it to help the consumer for this "free flow of information" bullshit. 
  
They claim its the greed of the company and all this crap but haven't you noticed it is them who are being greedy and doing whats best in their interests. No one gives a fuck about linux on ps3 nor do they care about geohotz.  Not the majority of people who actually own a playstation anyway.

They are assholes. Assholes that need to be plugged.

This is wrong.  The USAF and Navy have bought almost 100,000 units of the PS3 just for the Linux support.  The clusters of PS3s using Linux is much cheaper than having a super computer.  The USAF were the first to complain to Sony when Sony took out OtherOS. 
 
@Andorski: Oh yeah, forgot about Nintendo's secret police.  Hah, man they hated that R4 back then.

@KaosAngel:  Yes the USAF and they are still using it. And anyone else could still use linux provided they didnt update. please. 
 
And the USAF is far from the "consumer" level we are talking about. If you want the technology research it and make it your self instead of trying to steal it like a douche. 
 
PS: they arent used for linux support.

This is far more about ownership and being able to do whatever the fuck you want to with the product you purchased. Sony is against this.

@cyraxible: Im afraid I do not believe that at all. Not to mention theres a terms of service when you buy the god damn console to begin with, if you dont agree you don't buy it, simple.

@Rydemption: TOS is only valid if use the PS3 online.  You can do whatever you want to your PS3 as long as it doesn't connect to PSN, and all people wanted was to put Linux back.  It's the same reason Apple got their asses handed to them and why the judge said Jailbreaking mobiles is legal.  Once you buy something, you can break it, hack it, do whatever you want.  It's yours.

@Rydemption: Courts have decided a few times that the Terms of Service is not a legally binding agreement. You can't be legally held to any of that jargon. Precedence my friend. 
Even if you violated their TOS online the most they could do is bar you from using their service.

I dont think this is real Anon,  maybe just some random 4chaners trying to be all cool and like there heros.   generally anon they actually fights decent causes and not random video game stuff.   
 
plus anonymous is smarter then basically saying "we are defending your consumer rights to do what ever you want with what you own by taking away your ability to play online.   lulz"

@p_p_o_d:  After reading over some of their exploits on wikipedia I would agree with this, but I believe the anon group revealed this info on their info site or w/e you can find the link on wikipedia or on their youtube channel. 
 
If it truely is an act of anon though it is pretty damn stupid compared to everything else they are doing. Either way I still do not believe juggling threats is the proper way to handle anything. Not to mention they are screwing around with a multi-billion dollar company which obviously doesn't take these sort of actions lightly. Geohotz is one example although Hotz wasn't "attacking" sony in anyway, although it is quite a different story since anon is also hidden face group.

Anon isn't a group.  There is no anon, or more accurately anyone at any time can be anon or a part of an anon movement.  That's the point.  It's ANONYMOUS and it's anyone.  It's not some well defined group with a power structure and command chain.  It's whoever feels like organizing and striking back.  Saying, "Those anon guys are messing wit my stuff!" doesn't make any sense.  Anon could be the guy or girl sitting next to you, your mom, your dad, brother, teacher.  It's the people cook your food, haul your trash, connect your calls.

Hope every single one of those dicks gets the kevin mitnick treatment. Wouldn't mind Sony spending their money on that, because they are traceable, from the DDoS zombies to the "masterminds".

Well, isn't that what Anonymous is? 
 
I hate stuff like this, because I don't think that Sony is making the right decisions to make their systems more secure, but the guys fighting against them are going about it the wrong way, themselves. In the end, it's the dudes on the sidelines who are suffering.

It's taken seriously when you can't use whatever you have because people decide to fuck it up for basically no reason. Why must people pirate and hack things? Why can't they go get a job and buy things like normal people do? WHY CAN'T THE WORLD BE AT PEACE DAMNIT! I guess no one will ever understand humanity.

AND WHY CAN'T WE FIGURE OUT WHAT THE DEAL IS WITH AIRLINE FOOD?! 
 
I just don't get why some people actually support the people who messes up stuff like PSN for everyone else who doesn't care about some wannabe hacker like George Hotz. 
"Oh no, my imaginary hacker boyfriend is being sued! My fat faggot self must do something about this! I will fuck the PSN up for everybody who uses it! That's the correct thing to do!"  
 
I wish it was legal to shoot people like that. 
Probably a good thing that I'm not the one creating laws

i think its because few people get a kick out of "sticking it to the man."  i mean some people just dont care about the devs and companies so they just download games for free for their own entertainment
