PSN update – Anon didn’t do it

Sony News

Small but meaningful update on the current failure of PSN.  AnonOps (Anonymous group who has been involved with previous attacks on Sony) has released another video explaining that they are not the cause.  They state that it may be possible that individual users could be the culprit, this is not the collectives wishes and they do not condone it.

What is much more likely (and logical) is that Sony is using Anonymous as a convenient scapegoat.  PSN has been experiencing questionable connection issues for the past month (all before this alleged attack)  to which Sony explained it was doing work on the servers and that a few would be down, resulting in the poor connection rates.  A month later, the network goes down and Sony needs an explanation.  It’s just plain in Sony’s best interest to place blame on Anonymous, lying or not.  It gets Sony out of needing to explain to their fans, and shareholders, why they are having such problems with their network.

Sony has been changing their story for the past month while giving little to no information to their fans about what is going on.  Anonymous has always openly admitted blame for their attacks, often with pride, and there is no reason for them not to in this case.

It’s looking like Sony has some ‘splainin to do, especially since they are having severe server problems during the release weekend of Mortal Kombat and Portal 2.

    another reason could be that Anonymous didn’t expected the huge backlash from the 70million users affected, they probably attacked the psn website but the servers are connected to the ps3 servers, sony pull the plug and millions of people are now angrily pointing fingers

      to Anonymous, so they came up with the “opss with didn’t do it” besides they dont have control over all the members, some Anonymous cells probably did it

    • johnybgood

      I think that they’re doing this on purpose, to test the water and see how much they can get out of people, reaction-wise. Then, ultimately, they’ll get around to asking for a fee to provide us with this service to “avoid” these or similar problems in the future.

        I would have no problem paying for the network. Sony doesn’t rip people off and know how to make there money with out charging people. They have done it for years. Even if they did charge us I know it will be way cheaper than what xbox 360 charges. I know they wouldn’t do this to there costumers just so they could charge them. IF THEY WANTED TO CHARGE THEY WOULD JUST CHARGE US. JUST LIKE MICROSOFT DOES. The problem was that they really got hacked.

    • thug

      who freakin cares about anon or acorn?!!!!!!!!!!! just get psn back up, i wanna play and stop hacking it up, what r u guys like 5 years old? what r u trying to prove? look “anon” or who ever you guys call your selves…. you dont like it make your own video game system and leave everyone else alone. if you guys are soooooooo smart!!!

      • Sergio

    • Sergio

      I’m sure the servers are not connected to the website LMFAO

      • frank

  • Anonymous is the cause you dumbfucks

    Anonymous IS THE FUCKING CAUSE I NEVER had a problem connecting to PSN before those dumbfucks arrive and guess what I know where hotz lives and i’m gonna murder his ass

  • advertises r talk. u guys want to prove ursevles not guilty then do some info grabn about psn network downage, and post it. so called master legion bull shit.

  • Zowwerz

    Pretty harsh to assume it was them. although their past actions don’treally help them!!

    • frank

      yeah but they threaten Sony before and they said the next time if there demands weren’t meet then they were gonna take down the psn and they playstation store. so there for they can try to lie to us just to get our support, but they are the really ones that took down the psn.

  • Your Stupid

    agree with zowwerz

  • lets stop given the “master legion” publicity. thats all they want, so they can sell shirts, and put the knock off UN logo everywhere. Get a girl, go out side, and DO SOMTHING besides Cyber Terrorism. pick a better sound track i know its hard from ur moms basement.

  • lolz

  • wtf

    so been looking into this a bit… every time anon has made an attack i have seen they leave their little quote i am legion, never forgive, never forget, expect us…. This time it ends “you should have expected us”….. IJS

  • blakehu

    Bad week for Sony.

  • Bunch of twats

    I hate you hacking bastards.

    • Arzrael

      Ok I admit that no psn is a bit cack. But it’s bin gorgeous outside. The kidz r in da pool avin a great time. If da network was up they would b sat in front of da Telly playin LBP 2 all day. Yeah it’s an inconvenience an whoever is responsible should b castrated wiv a spoon for messing wiv hard working people’s lives. But patience is a virtue psn won’t b down long. Get da beers out, get da barbeque cranked an enjoy ur weekend. Anonymous shud av used that motto lol!

  • Cellophane Girl

    It sucks that the network is down, but there are other things in life to do. And it’s not like you can’t play your games (for the most part).
    It’s silly to get so upset over the PSN being down when there are MUCH bigger problems in the world.
    Just wait a while and it will be back.

  • dareap

    i neva had any issues before the 21st i blame all this shit on them #$^#% anonymous even if it wernt them this time.. they set it all off..i dont give a %$@# about moddin my ps or shit just wanna play the games ive paid 4

  • person

    I dont give a #$%#@$ what the problem is i just want psn back up and running. and if they want to make psn users pay a fee i’ll just switch to xbox. i bought a ps3 for the free online gaming. most of my friends have xbox anyway.

  • get out of ur moms basement

    anonymous hows it feel to have my sword penetrate your heart. the virus will spread. all networks will be down. your next SEAL out

  • Dro

    Hail Legion. Only we know the truth. Don’t expect less. SONY is corrupt.

  • Cellophane Girl

    This thread is full of raging sony fanboys and it makes me giggle a little bit. Breathe, relax, it will all be okay.
    The comments are starting to remind me of when the power went out in our neighborhood and my next door neighbor stood outside all night in the dark howling and screaming for someone to turn his lights back on.
    The whole time they were working on the problem and his howling did nothing to help the situation, it just irritated everyone else and made him more upset.

  • hehe everyone knows best and their conclusions are fact lol

  • seals
