If he were just a "dude who liked cracking things" he would have never released his work for others to use to pirate on the PS3.
Sony isn't the Sheriff of Nottingham and these douchebags aren't Robin Hood. This is the real world and the people who did this stuff are no different than any other thieves. If this were Best Buy and a group of idiots broke in and stole all the electronics, would you blame Best Buy or the thieves?
I realize the internet is where all the Che Guevara T-shirt wearing, Mt. Dew Drinking, man-babies hang out, but nothing that happened in the last week is Sony's fault. Criminal acts happened by criminals and you guys are defending them...nice!
