Anonymous Threatens Sony, Hours Later PSN ‘Down For Repairs.’

Oh shit! Anonymous is totally cheesed off with Sony for suing George ‘GeoHot’ Hotz for releasing the PS3 root key into the world. Today they threatened to slap the taste out of Sony’s Collective Mouf in one of their typically creepy videos.  A couple of hours later, PlayStation Network went down for ‘repairs.’


Just hours after the hacker collective Anonymous threatened to take down the PlayStation Network and major Sony websites, the PSN – the service that allows PS3 gamers to compete online and download games – has been going on and offline. The official PlayStation blog and Sony’s U.S. PlayStation site are also loading slowly, if at all.

An official PlayStation Twitter account noted just before 1pm ET today that: “PSN currently undergoing sporadic maintenance. Access to the PSN may be interrupted throughout the day. We apologize for any inconvenience.” The service was down after that though appeared to be functioning again by 3:30 ET.

Oh shit! Anonymous strike? PS3 preventative measures? No one knows, but I’m certainly fucking entertained!
