Does anyone know the real story behind the PSN outage?

Updated: May 5th (Cinco de Mayo)

Hacker Group Anonymous was behind the attack. Apparently this notorious hacking group hacked the PSN and to make sure everyone knew it was them, they uploaded a file titled "Anonymous" with the text "We are Legion". I google searched "Anonymous We are Legion" and it brought me to a page with a little information about Anonymous. Check out the page here:

http://www.yalelawtech.org/anonymity-online-identity/we-are-anonymous-we-are-legion/

Also check out the apparent message the hacking group sent Sony:

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/05/anonymous-sony-is-incompetent-and-we-dont-steal-credit-cards.ars

Also the creepy Anonymous cyber stalking and cyber attacking of Sony Employees and their families:
http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/04/anonymous-goes-after-sony-makes-it-personal-very-personal.ars

Or maybe Sony finally realized that the 360 is a million times better then the GayS3 and they decided to shut down the PSN's so more people will convert to the 360 (they like customer happiness you see) and the story about the hackers is just so they can hide the shame and embarssment of being beat by microsoft (which has a lot of shame mind you... I HATE microsoft! But I like the 360 :3)!

I did not ask this question for a whole bunch of stupid console fan boys to come along and rave about how much one console is better than the other. Seriously, what is the point?

Good thing I don't play 360 that much, honestly though, people who hack are just nerds who can't get money or girls.

A lot of people say that but with something big like that it's usually to send some message. Before the servers were actually down I heard Anon was threatening to do it so it wouldn't surprise me if they were responsible.

But before people come in and hate on anon they have done some good things with their hacking lol.

lol If you honestly think the 360 is better than the PS3 you are a dumb ass. Your obviously just a little Microsoft fanboy throwing in that little I Hate Microsoft at the end to make it seem like you aren't. I like the 360, its a great system and has great games, but truth be told the PS3 is just better on so many levels.

Actually if you research a little more you will find out that Anonymous didnt bring the server down this time. The group explained that they didnt do it in their facebook page. A rogue hacker went into the system and took data files from all of sony's customers. Sony went done to rebuild their network.
Although, Cloud Ec2 servers had a meltdown and Sony's PS3 network could have been hosted on those servers.

What are you talking about? Steam is for computer games only and XBL has nothing to do with what everyone's talking about.
