Anonymous changes tact to target Sony stores

By Gary Johnson - Apr 11, 2011

Anonymous and Sony have been in the news a lot lately, and the story has taken a new twist after Anonymous revealed what they plan to do next. They had allegedly been targeting some of the company’s websites and its PlayStation Network much to the dismay of many gamers. But now the group is changing tact to target Sony stores.

Lawrence Latif from the Inquirer is reporting that now the group is going to focus its actions on the company’s stores. This follows on from the report we gave you about Anonymous stopping their action on PSN as they didn’t want to cause problems for gamers.

The in-store protests are set to take place around the world at Sony retail outlets, but exact locations and time have obviously not been given. This kind of action will hopefully remain peaceful, but Anonymous will have a bigger chance of bringing their cause to the general public.

Whatever happens with the latest cause of action it’s not likely to be a small demo. All this started from PlayStation hacker George Hotz, who now faces legal action from Sony for his exploits. Sony has tried to stop the information he posted on the web about jail breaking the PS3.
