Issues With PSN Continues to Irritate PS3 Users.

If things couldn’t get any worse for Sony, PlayStation 3 users are reporting connectivity issues with PlayStation Network on the Sony forums today. Earlier this week, Anonymous, a group of hackers, have declared war with Sony for interrupting the free flow of information, suing Jailbreakin’ legend Geo Hot and attempting to view the IP addresses of those who watched his videos. They have angered the online community of hackers and also Playstation 3 users who are at the receiving end of these attacks.

According to a post by a community team moderator at the sony forums, they’re currently looking into the problem and will update with more information when it becomes available. You can follow the guy on twitter @RabidWalker as he will be tweeting with info on there as well.

Another group reported by Playstation Lifestyle, Sony Recon, have been going after the big heads at Sony, looking to reveal a bunch of personal information that includes names, phone numbers, IP addresses and World of Warcraft Accounts (j/k). It seems that the group has already started attacking people, taking down the website of the company who’s handling Sony’s case and compiling information of the lawyers who are involved.

If I was running the company, I would have to pull back and rethink the situation. Suing someone for buying your product with their hard earned money and studying it to see what it’s capable of, shouldn’t be an available option. Sure…you have will hackers manipulating things making you feel like you’re losing money but this is a great opportunity for companies to come in and hire them to create security. I don’t know what I’m talking about but that’s something I’d try to do instead of suing potential attackers.

    Good time for Sony to discontinue the life of the PS3. I can now expect the PS4 to be in production.

    I’m sure right now Microsoft is glad they didn’t build any sort of net browser on their machines.

    In all seriously, I don’t care for Sony nor do I care for GeoHot. Maybe if he wasn’t such a d-bag I’d respect him a little more.

    As much as I want to see the new line up of next-gen consoles…I still expect the ps3 to outlast the 360 for a while. Microsoft’s products are built knowing that they will get their shit hacked, that’s why they have a really strict policy on xbox live arcade and the ability to find out what system is hacked and ban their ip, prevents things like this from happening.

    I don’t for neither either….as long as I’m not the one at the receiving end of these attacks.
