Sony shuts down PSN, saves billions and blames Anonymous

Yesterday, Sony purposefully shut down its own Playstation Network servers to save itself billions in operating costs. This move was shrouded with rumors that Anonymous has yet again resorted to the unpopular DDoS attacks that led to the failed “boycott” of Sony products on April 16th. Sony, as always, has made a meaningless and vague statement about their network status in an attempt to counter any blame.

Despite their own miserable failure with Sony, Anonymous has not even had time to come up with a new strategy. In fact, Anonymous has entirely lost interest in wasting their time on Sony. Playstation 3 owners have reactivated their violent urges which are at a steady boiling point without Call of Duty: Black Ops. The last bastion of truly free press, AnonNews.org, has been under sporadic DDoS attacks that may have originated from “Sonyfags” or the Playstation Network itself.

Now with a scapegoat for all future network outages, Sony is free to mistreat their own user base without discretion. Sony currently has a plan in the works to create paid Playstation “Gold” accounts that will not suffer from network outages which disable completely unrelated services such as Netflix and Skype. This strategy is consistent with Reddit’s current “downtime” that allows only paid Reddit “Gold” accounts the ability to log in.

Free information and net neutrality is dying at the altar of Anonymous, as I have predicted. Public opinion is being manipulated by the global oligarchs who control multi-national corporations like Sony. The people are being whipped into a hate-storm that can only end with mass vannings of the Anonymous collective.

UPDATE: Sony has admitted that the database of personal information on PSN has been compromised. Anonymous sides with the users of PSN in filing a class action lawsuit against the incompetence of Sony!

    Sony never said ANON was responsible for the DDoS and outage of their service. They only stated that an attack was made by an outside party, and that they were still investigating who was responsible. Anon was not even mentioned.

    As far as AnonNews.org being attack by an Sony itself is highly implausible. The legal charges they could face would not be worth the gain, which there is no gain. Companies do not operate like that. The coincidental timing of the attack on AnonNews more than likely came from a QQing hacker playing the blame game because he could not get his fix of Black OPs.

    Finally, You get what you pay for. The PSN is free to use for everyone, and as Sony has stated it will remain that way for basic services. Complaining about it is like pirating a movie and then complaining to the uploader that its quality was not up to par with your standards. Your getting this shit for free, thats more than I can say about other networks out there. I believe the “Gold” feature will be a great addition to the network for players willing to pay an extra buck to receive better services.
