Just a few days ago, Forbes reported that LulzSec, a hacking group previously responsible for hacking Sony's BMG Japanese Website, was planning on hacking Sony again.

LulzSec twittered,

Quote
"We’re working on another Sony operation. We’ve condensed all our excited tweets into this one: this is the beginning of the end for Sony."


and

Quote
"(Sony + Ownage) Phase 1 will begin within the next day. We may have a pre-game show for you folks though. Stay tuned."


Just yesterday, LulzSec claimed to have hacked Sony, saying on their twitter:

Quote
"Hey @Sony, you know we're making off with a bunch of your internal stuff right now and you haven't even noticed? Slow and steady, guys."


All this is happening just after Sony announced plans to restore PlayStation Network Services by this week. Here's to hoping LulzSec doesn't take it down again.

Just because we are PC gamers doesnt mean we dont care about Gaming in general. This is a topic everyone should be aware of because it can affect our members!

Just joking, I forgot the winky face in there. I care about it hard btw. Im a PC Gamer, surrounded by Console gaming friends. LAN's consist of consoles and alcohol for me, very sad.

Back on topic. Hope it is just talk.

Well i feel like SONY is one of the better not so greedy companies that is still out there. And i belive they really want there playstation users well. But if it was activision that got hacked i wouldnt care.

I mean, what other companies would give all of their users 2 free games and free live membership? I know Microsoft wouldnt!

I say Sony hacked itself in order to show losses, so that they wouldn't have to pay high taxes to the Japanese government.

Sony is pretty cool, they don't try to make you pay for every little thing like other corporations do. >>

I think thats the problem, most people when given something free tend to really yell when it goes down, but for those who pay for a service and then lie to themselves saying it's secure...now that's just ignorance and stupidity right there. Yes, yo may think you're safe, just wait till you realize someone stole your live account and you can't do anything about it.

HAHA Sony was hacked the first time because they are stuck up cunts! They think that they are god's gift to the world, they did a Titanic, claimed their ship was unsinkable.

This is pretty true. Sony did claim that their PS3 was unhackable at one point. See how far THAT went. Tongue

That's why Microsoft never said their stuff wasn't because it is! Sony just placed the ultimate card saying "Call my bluff" and the hackers did just that. They called it, beat it, and sent it home with its tail between its legs.

On a more serious note, Sony was not the only one to face the hackers mischief, Bohemia was also hacked for three days in a row, even though they upgraded their security, they were still hacked. The Hackers warned Bohemia as to when and what they will be hacking and they did follow through.

The Hackers sent a message that which was directly connected to the development of ArmA 3, I didn't know at that time, I only knew that Bohemia was working on something, I though it was a mod for ArmA 2. After the screens were released for ArmA3, it hit me, the hackers were from the middle east and Bohemia makes Simulation shooters and the crew went to certain locations and took photos for the games development.

The hackers are middle eastern and all they do is cause mischief/stall workflow. To be frank this is quite the scene and its actually exciting, haven't been so exited about the gaming industry since 2007.

This shows to them that there isn't anything that can't be hacked. The tune has always been sung that developers don't make games for PC due to Piracy, and they believed that consoles do not share this same fate? For me it's an awakening for Sony to know that PCs aren't the only thing being hacked, your consoles can be just as vulnerable. If piracy was such a problem, why does Microsoft continue making Windows and Office? Two of the most pirated software around the world yet the continue to make it. Why not stop and say "Because of Piracy, we are stopping making OSes and Office. 

People believed in consoles as being superior to a PC (I can't even conceive how they even began to think that absurd logic) but now they have realised it. Mostly everyone knew Xbox live can be hacked, but as everything else with Microsoft, you push enough money into it with PR and no one will know the difference. Let's see how this plays out, if Xbox live goes down it's gonna be the best dose of karma, and all the xbox fanboys are gonna get burned by their ps3 fanboys.

I smell a war brewing in the consoles, not the ordinary one, one that will go to epic proportions is coming.

Believing something is superior than the other is just fool hearty, Sekei has some valid facts, but there are always two sides to a coin and there is a Ying to a Yang...

Base line is that we can only be prepared, PC gaming wont die as Games are developed on the PC and as long as that will happen there will always be PC gaming. Platforms come and go....PC will be the same, for the developers its a tool for creation and for the hackers a platform to cause destruction with.
