Default PSN under attack by hackers!

So, evidently some lifeless hacker @$$hole decided to nuke the sony network because they weren't happy with the company for some reason or another (they posted some kind of message on youtube to explain their motives.
the PSN was therefore completely disabled until things can get fixed/de-bugged whatever....
The Sad thing?
I went on the DCUO Facebook page to check out whether or not there had been any progress and the main complaints i saw were of losers who wanted to get back to the game before their g/f/wife wanted them to put the game down and pay them some attention.

Guys you really want to give your ladies some satisfaction post haste before you wake up to a letter explaining why some other guy is giving your now Ex-g/f/wife the business instead of you.

In order, this is a prime example of why I really hate hackers, secondly,thats really freaking sad that some people's concern is that god forbid, they have to put the game down and pay attention to their wife, gf etc.

Of course they do. They are just made of plastic. Some are probably even the kind you have to inflate.

It's a sad fact of life, that when you are married and have kids, you're windows for time to yourself are very short and minimal. So when someone shits on that time and robs you of doing what you want to do in the small amount of time you get to do it.....fuck yeah. It pisses you off.

Doesn't make you a loser. I'm happily married, and I think a vital key to that happiness is not being shoved up my wifes ass 24/7....I carve up some me time. My wife does the same.

It'll be okay, remember when games just had two or four player support? Those were the days.

Anon says no, but obviously can not be certain that someone in Anon and outside of the core group didn't do it.

As an additional to, I know a lot of you may be upset about not getting to play right this minute on PSN, but in the long run, it's probably a good thing to let these corporations know they can not use the legal system to punish individual citizens by drowning them in legal debt why infringing upon an end users right to modify a purchased product. If they want to lock out hacked Sony products from PSN, that is their prerogative, it's their playground. But when they try to abuse the courts to enforce their idea of what users should be doing with their products, it's a bridge too far.

Well said. I am one of those people that has other obligations in the real world, so the last few days were my last real opportunity to tear up the game this month. But I am nothing but sympathetic if that was the motivation.

People seem to forget that Sony was legally obligated to protect its intellectual property. Geohot was breaking the law by distributing illicit information. Yes, Sony's approach was heavy-handed, but corporations have little choice in the matter when it comes to this sort of thing.

True. I have no sympathy towards Sony. However, it hurts the consumers as well who just want to get online and whoop someone's ass in Mortal Kombat. Seems like there are other ways to get at them, without hurting the very people they're trying to protect.

That is if the stunt was pulled to try and teach Sony a lesson.

Their intellectual property is already protected through patents and copyrights. Preventing end users from modifying a product they have purchased is not something we as consumers should sit by and let happen. I can see how you might think they were protecting their IP though, but let's substitute Sony for Chevy, and Playstation 3 for a Camaro. Using the same logic you stated above, if I found a way to change the Engine Control Unit firmware of my Camaro so that I could get better gas mileage, and then shared that information with others who wanted to get better mileage as well, you would think that Chevy would need to drown me in legal debt to silence me.

I see your point, but this was actually getting around restricted protocols and DRM. That's still illegal, just as modchips were during the PS1 and PS2 era.

All companies have restriction protocol on their software, firmware and hardware. Also, it is not illegal, look up the court ruling of the Electronic Frontier Foundation on jailbreaking . Companies would like it to be illegal so they can dictate exactly how you use their products, but if someone pays for a product, they have the legal right to modify that product. What Sony was attempting to do was to use so much financial and legal pressure that they could overwhelm GeoHot into submission.

when you get to be my age, it becomes harder and harder to set up a hang out and play games session. Everyone has plans, and then you have work in the morning. Or the wife doesn't want him to leave the house. And so on and so on.
