News: The End for Sony?

Movie News

Just weeks after restoring the Playstation Network it would appear that Sony are still on the defensive.

Hacker group LulzSec (sounds a bit like sleep-inducing lozenge), fresh off the back of an attack last week on Sony BMG's Japanese Website, issued the following statement via Twitter.

"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." Stern stuff indeed.  This was followed the day after by this tweet, "#Sownage (Sony + Ownage) Phase 1 will begin within the next day. We may have a pre-game show for you folks though. Stay tuned." (I particularly like the explanation of Sony + Ownage, just incase you thought it was some bizarre experiment for determining the age of female pigs).

With no official response from Sony one can only assume they wish they hadn't gone all "corporate gangster" on the ass of one George "GeoHot" Hotz, the man responsible for the PS3's root key being discovered. However as this case has been settled, this is one PS3 fan who thinks that Sony have probably learnt their lesson and I'm hoping that LulzSec will let me get on with getting my ass kicked online by 12 year old Koreans for the forseeable future.

Sony getting their just desserts? Hackers hacking you off? Sod it 'cos you're all about the XBox anyway? Let us know below...
