Sony has filed a lawsuit against the hackers who figured out how to bypass the PS3's security keys and then posted the keys online for the public to see and use. The keys allow users to run software that has not been approved by Sony such as custom firmware, homebrew programs and pirated games. Sony Computer Entertainment America has called out George Hotz, the original iPhone hacker, and the hacking group who made the discovery, fail0verflow, in the lawsuit. George Hotz recently appeared in court with his attorney to file a response.
After that, the internet group Anonymous declared war on Sony.
In early April, about the 4th or 5th, PSN was downed due to Anon.
Now PSN is down currently, and while some suspect Anon, they have denied it on their home page. BUT... on their FB page, a post claimed responsibility.
So, with all this going on, what are the Empire's thoughts on this situation?
