Anonymous changes tact to target Sony stores

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.

How do you feel about Anonymous plans?

Firstly, to anyone posting comments here; learn how to spell first! Then learn how to use grammar; it's so much more enjoyable for the reader. To anti-anonymous tw*t – they WERE attacking Sony because one of their members is being sued by Sony! Try and read the facts first. They have also stated they did not bring down the PSN; Sony are using this as the reason. No one knows for sure what the problem was/is, but i'm betting Sony are bullsh*tting, as usual. There's nothing in the Terms and conditions for my PS3 that states i can't jailbreak it;… Read more »

Hey if the guy Jailbroke his ps3, so what. The terms of service doesn't state that you can't use your own PS3 offline and abuse it that way. They specificully said, in basic terms so even the most incompotent people can understand it, Cheat, Hacking, Exploiting is against the terms of use. Though this is true, Sony can't track you offline so suck it up and whining saying Sony's a bully and what not. Its your fault you hacked it, Not Sony's. Besides, Sony's Internet Security is horrible to say the least. There Motherboards are easily hackable no matter how… Read more »
