PlayStation 3 owners have been experiencing problems of late when trying to access the PlayStation Network. It is thought the group Anonymous has been targeting Sony in a series of attacks, because of Sony’s treatment of PS3 owners and jail breakers. But Anonymous have said the attacks will stop for now at least.
Stewart Meagher over at thinq is reporting in an article that the group has said in a statement “that targeting PSN is not a good idea”. They have decided to temporarily stop their action, as they want to find a way of not seriously affecting Sony’s customers.
The attacks on the PlayStation Network will stop today, and the group realizes that hitting owners of the PS3 is not what it wants to do. Many owners of the PS3 have been extremely angry with the problems they have been facing since the attacks started, and some were saying they had lost all sympathy with the hackers.
Anonymous have said it wants to concentrate on Sony itself, and will try not to affect all the gamers out there. The statement went on to say that if gamers were hit with problems it “was not our goal.” During the down time all Sony has said it was down to planned maintenance.
Whether you agree with Anonymous actions are not, it will be welcome news if you are a PlayStation 3 owner.
What are your feelings about Anonymous?
