Life must suck if you wish harm on others.

Let's see, huge corporation with nearly unlimited funds and legal support, or broke ass hacker sitting in his living room cracking a console?...I think the hackers should worry more. There is a reason why even groups that have hacked the PSN before are backing away from this mess. This wasn't some harmless act and whoever gets caught (if they get caught) is going away for a long time.

Once upon a time, pirates had this untouchable attitude, and then quite a few of them got sent to jail for a few years and the rest of them went running scared. You couldn't tell that now due to the publishers backing off, but for a quite a while the pirate scene was a ghost town. This **** is all fun and games to these guys until they lose their freedom. The first person that get's linked to this thing will be made an example of and I highly doubt you see anyone trying anything like this any time soon.

Like rack up 25k posts on Nvnews? Why diss gamers on a gaming forum? Four games are hardly "every game out there".

He's right, if you limit yourself to one platform you miss out on a ton of great games.

I hate Steam and I'd feel the exact same way. I'd feel the same way if this were Microsoft, EA, Activision, or my bank instead of Sony.

Who it happened to is irrelevant. How people feel they treat customers is irrelevant. A crime is a crime and I'd want these morons tossed in jail regardless of who they hacked.

That's a stupid ****ing statement. Take a second and think about how stupid it is to wish harm upon customers because of your dislike of something as dumb as a console...

Once PSN comes back up, you can login and check.

I got a call from my CC company the other day regarding strange purchases. Luckily they were all mine, heh.
